Who we are

Carlton Pearson is a native of San Diego California, where he spent the first 18 years of his life with his parents and five siblings. He was raised in a traditional fundamentalist Christian home, a fourth generation Pentecostal preacher.​

​After studying at the Oral Roberts University in Tulsa Oklahoma, where he majored in Biblical Literature/English Bible and minored in Theology/Historical Studies, he served for 15 years on its Board of Regents, and two years as Associate Evangelist of The Oral Roberts Association, (ORA).

In 1977, Pearson founded Higher Dimensions Ministries (now New Dimensions ), in Tulsa, which grew from a traveling evangelistic team in ‘77, to a multi-faceted global ministry, which included a local church of over 5,000, a home for unwed mothers, one for ex-offenders returning to society, a full service licensed Counseling Center, prison and nursing home outreaches, a national Purity With Purpose Discipleship Program for men and women, with graduates nationally and internationally, a 645 acre horse Ranch for troubled Youth and Teens.

His annual Azusa conference, held on the Campus of the Oral Roberts University, (his Alma Mater) saw attendance swell as high as some 50,000 during the week-long event. The popular conference helped give exposure to numerous now well-known and highly successful ministers and ministries who now enjoy an international platform and worldwide recognition. ​

​A Stellar award winning vocalist, Pearson has sold into the millions of CDs and videos with his recording contracts with Warner Brothers, Atlantic Records, and Tommy Boy and has also been nominated for the Christian recording industry Dove Award.

After a shifting to what Carlton calls “Expanded Consciousness” and the broader hope that all humanity would come to and ultimate end of good and God, rather than eternal damnation, his entire ministry was transfigured to one of radical Inclusion. This shift caused the re-inventing, re-positioning and re-branding of himself and his ministry.

Today Pearson's ministry targets specifically and primarily the "un or less-churched." He makes his appeal to those who feel spiritually unresolved. His ministry now addresses issues of spiritual, social, moral, cultural, religious and political significance in a practical, yet provocative manner relating faith to culture. He likes to call himself a Sacred Activist and Spiritual Progressive and is a strong proponent of Justice and Peace issues.

Bishop Pearson places high priority on personal integrity, meaning the integration of all aspects of human beings, being human and how that plays out thru what he calls "Self Actualization” and that all in the global human family should acknowledge its common relevance and its corporate relativity. He believes the opposite of that is dis-integration, (disintegration) of the human spirit, race and civil society.

Pearson was consecrated to the office of Bishop in 1996 through a College of Bishops headed by Bishop Charles E Blake, presently the Presiding Bishop of the Churches of God In Christ, the denomination of his upbringing, and through whom he was officially ordained into ministry in 1971. He founded and presided as Bishop of the Azusa Interdenominational Fellowship of Christian Churches and Ministries, a network of over six hundred churches and ministries. He has served on the College of Bishops of the International Communion of Charismatic Churches, and on the boards of several other charitable and humanitarian organizations, including the Human Rights Campaign of Wash DC, an organization promoting the civil rights of America's GLBTQ community. He has authored a variety of books and booklets and more recently, he has felt a passion to proclaim the “Gospel Of Inclusion” and has written a widely acclaimed book by that name, published by Simon and Schuster. The book emphasizes multi-cultural dialogue and common respect for all faith disciplines. It confronts the Christian church's exclusivism as being inconsistent, in spirit with the teachings of Jesus and that it is more important what Jesus said about God than what the church says about Jesus.

Pearson feels the mandate to help enhance the possibilities of peace on the planet through his emphases on a more inclusive approach to spirituality, encouraging interfaith dialogue and fellowship. Pearson teaches that we don't have to go along to get along, that we can mind many of the same things without necessarily having the same mind about everything. His work towards racial reconciliation, bridging the gap between ethnic groups, nations and denominations, has given him audience with kings, presidents, other government officials and people of influence, both in America and abroad. He has been welcomed in and invited to speak in Synagogues, Islamic groups, Atheist and Agnostic organizations along with developing relationships with faith communities outside the Abrahamic faiths and fostering links between his Pentecostal/Evangelicals and other faith disciplines and traditions, as a means of fostering cooperation and respect and bridging the gap both in and outside of Christianity. The ministry and message of Carlton Pearson is a commitment to reconciling our differences, celebrating our diversity, and acknowledging our oneness in the world and in worship.

​Believing that a silent church is a saltless church, Pearson's frank and often controversial take on a number of different subjects has earned him appearances on television programs such as NBC and MSNBC’s Dateline, ABC's Nightline, 20/20, Good Morning America, CBS Evening News with Dan Rather, BET Tonight with Tavis Smiley, The Edge with Paula Zahn and Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher, The Monique Show on BET, and a number of other television, radio and print media outlets. Bishop Pearson was recognized as one of America's 10 Most Influential Black Ministers by Gospel Today and Belief.net. He has received several honorary doctoral degrees.

​In 1993, Carlton married the former Gina Marie Gauthier (pronounced Go-chay), who is a professional Life Coach, Landmark Education and Yoga enthusiast. They are the proud parents of one son, Julian D'Metrius, and a daughter, Majestè Amour, both teenagers.

​Bishop Pearson, at the invitation to serve as the Interim Senior Minister at Christ Universal Temple in Chicago, moved his family and ministry headquarters from Tulsa, Oklahoma to Chicago where he is Founder/Executive Director of New Dimensions Chicago, building a local multi-cultural and radically Inclusive spiritual community that emphasizes radical inclusion, expanded consciousness and Self-Actualization (the development of the personal Self and Soul) and includes a cyber ministry reaching a global Internet audience of thousands.

His newest book, God Is Not A Christian, Nor A Jew, Muslim, Hindu…God Dwells With Us, In Us, Around Us, As Us, was published by Simon and Schuster and released in the spring of 2010. He is presently working on his next book titled "You're Not In Trouble, You're In Transition: Making, Managing and Mastering Change."

The power of Christian prayer God's Promise
Jesus gave His life so that you do not have to carry your burden. He knows this burden hinders you from having eternal life. He knows your sin burden hinders you from living the abundant life that God created you to live. He knows your sin hinders you from experiencing joy and peace that has no bounds and hinders you from receiving all that God has promised and created you to receive.

You just have to ask.
