WGTB-CD is a Class A low-powered Christian television station in Charlotte, North Carolina, broadcasting on channel 28. It is owned by Victory Christian Center, a charismatic megachurch in Charlotte. Its transmitter is located northeast of the city. WordNet also owns a network of gospel music stations fronted by WOGR in Charlotte. Together, they form the Word of God Broadcasting Network, and operate from studios on the campus of the church's middle school in northwest Charlotte.

It airs programming primarily from FamilyNet, LeSEA, TCT and The Worship Network, along with classic television programs such as The Lone Ranger, Daniel Boone and Bonanza.

The station signed on in November 1996 under the call letters W28AC before acquiring the WGTB-LP call sign a month later. From May 2007 to December 5, 2011 WMYT-TV's third digital subchannel carried WGTB-LP. It was also available on Time Warner Charlotte channel 113. On August 1, 2012, WGTB-LP flash-cut to digital operations, also on channel 28. While its analog signal was essentially limited to Charlotte itself, its digital signal decently covers most of the North Carolina side of the market. However, it is not carried on any of the area's cable systems. On January 7, 2013, the station changed its call sign to the current WGTB-CD.
