Our Goal And Purposes
The Motto of GHIM is ‘GIVING GOD PLEASURE’ As we do, we will Enjoy our Glorious Inheritance every day in Jesus Mighty Name.
OUR AIM AND GOAL ON THIS EARTH:
It is our aim and goal on this earth as a GHIM member to make heaven and to take as many people with us. To achieve this holiness will be our lifestyle. And we will plant churches in every city and town of developing and developed countries. We will pursue this objective until every nation in the world is reached for the Lord Jesus Christ.
THE PURPOSES OF THE MINISTRY
We want to give God pleasure in GHIM. Anything that wants to divert this goal is considered irrelevant and must be avoided. In the quest of fulfilling this mandate, these five purposes of the church were born. Our heavenly Father told us that we will give Him pleasure as we embraced these purposes set in His Holy Word for every Christian.
Glory assembly is committed to fulfilling all these five purposes because these are the tasks that Christ Jesus Our Lord, God, King, Master and Potentate Saviour ordained for his Church to accomplish. The scriptural references used which I would like to call the TWO GREAT SCRIPTURES of GHIM are: (Matthew 22:37-40 and Matthew 28:19-20)
“Teacher, which [a]kind of commandment is great and important (the principal kind) in the Law? [Some commandments are light--which are heavy?] And He replied to him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (intellect).(A) This is the great (most important, principal) and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as [you do] yourself. (B) These two commandments [b]sum up and upon them depend all the Law and the Prophets”. “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law? Jesus replied: Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with your entire mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself .All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments” Matthew 22:36-40 AMP
“Jesus approached and, [a]breaking the silence, said to them, All authority (all power of rule) in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Go then and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them [b]into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, Teaching them to observe everything that I have commanded you, and behold, I am with you [c]all the days ([d]perpetually, uniformly, and on every occasion), to the [very] close and consummation of the age. [e]Amen (so let it be)”. Matthew 28:18-20 AMP
From these two Scriptural passages, the Five Purposes of Glorious Heritage Ministries International was born
1: Purpose #1: God Consciousness: Love the Lord Your God with all your heart-spirit, soul and body. We love God with all our heart by worshipping Him. You cannot worship God with you sins and perverseness. That is why the only way to do it is first to be born again. Salvation is the key to worshipping God in truth and spirit. God has given us already this wonderful salvation free and undeserved through His Son Jesus Christ. (John 3:16. Romans 10:9-10). So when you receive Jesus as Lord and personal saviour you can worship God, you have the right to worship God and you should worship God. Accepting the grace of God for free is the start of your God given purpose. 1 John 4:7-8
2: Purpose #2 Neighbour Consciousness: Love your Neighbour as you love yourself: Your neighbour is any person that is not you. The church exists to minister to the needs of people; their spiritual, emotional, relational and physical needs. If you have accepted God’s love for your life through Jesus Christ you should love others as yourself. Glory assembly members should love each other like themselves. John 13:34-35
3: Purpose # 3 Messenger with a Mission: Go and make Disciples: This purpose is called in GHIM Evangelism or Sharing the Good News. It is every Christians responsibility to share the Good News where ever we go- we are to tell people about our creation, the love of God, our fall into sin, Christ the only solution for salvation from sin; Christ’s coming in to the world to set us free from sin, His death on the cross, his resurrection, our assurance of eternal life, the peace and happiness in God and Christ’s promise to return. Men do not have to die in their sins anymore. The price has been paid; this is the Good News. We are mandated to propagate this good news – Romans 10:14-17
4: Purpose # 4 Impact with Power: Baptising them. This Purpose is called Impartation As an effective disciple of Christ, we have been endures with power to be an effective influence to our world as Luke 10:19 clearly states. This power we have received freely so it is our responsibility to impact our world with this God given power. The mandate has been given to us to baptize others with spiritual virtues as God gives us the utterance to do so (John 15:5) – We impact our world both physical and spiritual. From water baptism to the baptism in the Holy Spirit; this gift has been entrusted to us for the edification of the Church. This symbolizes our salvation or new life in Christ and it visualizes a person’s incorporation in to the family of Christ. Eph 2:19. We have lots of baptism in the bible and we believe all of them. We believe in water baptism and the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
5: Purpose # 5: Equip for Exploits: Teaching them to obey: This purpose is called Discipleship; modelling or teaching to Christ Likeness: As disciples of Christ God’s number one(1) goal for our life is to be like Christ Jesus (Romans 8:18-29). It is our responsibility to help people become more like Christ in their thoughts, feelings and actions. The only way this can be achieved is by the preaching of the Full Gospel of Christ. It is our mandate to preach the entire Bible as the undiluted Holy Word of God. This process begins when someone is born again and continues throughout life. Daniel 11:32,
