Sword of the Spirit the Christian Center was established on February 9, 1989 by it's Pastor, Willie L. Anderson acting in obedience to the call of God.  In the words of Pastor Anderson, "God gave me a vision of a Christian Church in the city of Camden where the Word of God is taught through Jesus Christ: without compromise; where the praise and worship of God flows freely under the anointing of the Holy Spirit; where all believers can come together without respect of race, gender, economic or social background."

Pastor Willie Anderson, raised in a large family of 18 siblings, his love for children and youth is apparent. When his schedule permits, he participates in the church’s youth outreach. 

God is a God of our cities and our goal is to change lives and rebuild our cities through the Word of Faith, Healing and prosperity.  The vision simply stated is to teach the Word of Faith in the inner-city with simplicity and understanding so that it may be applied to our lives, situations and problems we may encounter from day to day. When we change our lives, the lives of the people we reach through the power of the Holy Sprit will change.  Thereby causing change in our inner-cities.
