Faith Planted:

Bishop Terry Jackson, was ordained an Elder under the late Bishop James C. Jackson. It was in this ministry that the Lord blessed (then) Elder Terry Jackson to grow as a teacher/preacher of the word and a Minister of music. Upon the passing of the late Bishop Jackson and Mother Sophia Jackson, it became obvious that the Lord had work for Elder Terry to do. This caused his family and the saints to begin praying and fasting for the Lord to bless him with a church where they could fellowship together. After much praying and fasting in 2018, the Lord put it on Elder Terry’s daughter's heart to begin a building fund, which profits were later found to be the exact amount needed to rent the room which held the first services of the True Vine Redeemed Apostolic Church of Christ ministry. 


Faith with Works:

As months passed, Elder Terry Jackson and his family gathered to pray & continued adding to the future church’s building fund. Acting on faith, they began traveling to various cities, in search for a  place to worship. Though the search proved successful, Elder Jackson was determined to wait on the Lord, refusing to move until He told him to do so. After a year of waiting, the Lord told Elder Terry to GO and without hesitation, he packed everything and left. True Vine Redeemed Apostolic Church of Christ then held their first service in Wyndham Hotel, located in Williamsburg, VA on January 27, 2019. 


Faith Revealed:

On February 17, 2019, Elder Terry Jackson was ordained as Pastor of True Vine Redeemed Apostolic Church of Christ by Elder Caroll Spriggs. On March 6, 2019, True Vine held its first Wednesday Night Service and on March 23, the church purchased its first church van, used to transport saints to and from church services. The next day, Elder Terry gave all attendees the Right-Hand Fellowship, allowing all to became members of True Vine Redeemed Apostolic Church of Christ. While hosting services at the Wyndham Hotel, the Lord blessed Elder Terry to baptize his first soul in the name of Jesus Christ on May 5, 2019. As the scripture says, “…and the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved” (Acts 2:47 KJV). A month later, on June 6, 2019, the Lord moved and filled Elder Terry’s son with the precious gift of the Holy Ghost during the Sunday Service, allowing him to be the first soul saved under the leadership of Elder Terry Jackson. This was just the beginning of the many souls that would be saved under his pastorship. Elder Terry then began holding bible study in the garage of his late father and mother on August 29, 2019.  


After a year of great blessings, the Lord blessed True Vine to fellowship closer to “home”, as Elder Terry signed a contract to hold services at 1999 W Pembroke Ave., in Hampton, VA. On December 31, 2019, True Vine held its first New Years’ Service at their new location. Out of desire to encourage and maintain consistent prayer with the saints, Elder Terry Jackson began True Vine's noon-day prayer service, with the first Noon-day Prayer Service beginning July 1st, 2020. 

On November 25, 2020, the Lord led Bishop Terry Jackson to change the church name from True Vine Redeemed Apostolic Church of Christ to True Vine Apostolic Church of Christ. On December 5, 2020, Elder Terry Jackson was ordained Bishop Terry Jackson of True Vine Apostolic Church of Christ by Bishop Linwood Sawyer.


Bishop Terry Jackson has always told the church “We have to move fast!” Acting on faith, the church has always done so. On November 3, 2021, the Lord proved what faith plus works does, as the True Vine church cut the ribbon to their very own church home, located at 925 Old Buckroe Rd. Throughout these years, the Lord proved himself and continuously did great things for True Vine; not just for this, but for who Jesus is, we continue to give Him honor and praise!
