To empower believers everywhere to fulfill their God ordained purpose.


To equip and encourage others to build the Kingdom of God.



Minister Jesse Rainwater and his wife Linda served under three different Bishops from three different organizations for ten years before launching the ministry God called them to. After conducting a home Bible Study for a couple of years, they opened the doors to Full Gospel Church of Jesus Christ, in March 1994.

The focus of teaching at FGCJC was about “The Power of Prayer * The Purpose of Faith * The Privilege of Grace”.

After serving as the Pastor for several years, prophetic words concerning a shift in Pastor Rainwater’s ministry came from several different Apostles, across the Country. The Apostolic Mantel was upon Pastor Rainwater and the Ministry he and his wife founded.

He accepted the title of Apostle in 2005. And in 2006, renamed and relocated the Ministry. Now, The Vine Christian Ministries, with a new mission—Equip and Encourage others to Build the Kingdom of God. And with a new vision, Empower Believers Everywhere to Fulfill their God Ordained Purpose.

Family and Fellowship are still “staples” at The Vine, with a heavy focus on preparing everyone for their ministry of helps and works in the Body of Christ, through their local church. We believe ministry is service.
