About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

Who we are

Here's the deal, Sanctuary Charlotte Church cares about one thing more than anything else, Jesus Christ. Sanctuary is a family of individuals that have found hope in Jesus, and simply want as many people as possible to experience that exact same freedom.


Belonging: Everyone needs to feel a sense of belonging. Despite how you look or where you come from, in your heart there’s a desire for an assurance that you are wanted and someone cares. That is church. That is Sanctuary. No pretense, just humility. No conjecture, just acceptance. Join our multi-cultural community of believers. It’s a personal experience with a common goal—to grow in relationship to Jesus Christ.


Simple: We tend to make the simple things in life really complex, including church.  At Sanctuary, church is straightforward and relevant to our every day experiences.  The pressure is off—no stress, no intimidation—just Jesus.


Focus: When you focus on what really matters, you can achieve great things. At Sanctuary Charlotte, we focus on people. We keep church simple, show God’s goodness to everyone and share the sincere truth of God’s word.  Join our multi-cultural community of believers. It’s a personal experience with a common goal—to grow in relationship to Jesus Christ.

Where we come from

Sanctuary Charlotte Church was started in 2007 by Pastor Percy Reeves with a handful of families. Back then, these families imagined a church that was truly welcoming to everyone - where everyone had a seat at the table regardless of personal history, family background, ethnicity, or gender. Sanctuary moved to its current location in 2017.

Where we're headed

What's the bottom line? More than ever, Sanctuary Charlotte Church is committed to fostering a family built around hope. Hope for the future. Hope for better. Hope for progress. Hope in Jesus. And as we move forward as a church family, inclusion and belonging remain at the center of who we are as followers of Christ.
