Mission Statement


The primary focus of this ministry is restoration and kingdom building, which is exercised through the principle teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ for practical living.


“I am the door: by me, if any man enters in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out and find pastures. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.”

                                                                                                                --St. John 10:9-10


Vision Statement


We are a ministry founded on biblical principles. The Greater Intercessory Christian Church ministry incorporates diverse races, ethnic backgrounds, economical factors, and social status. We promote spiritual worship with God the Father through the teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are firm believers that "GOD IS A GOD OF ANOTHER CHANCE!" We are recognized for our dedication as being the greatest intercessors in the world.


“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

                                                                                                                --II Chronicles 7:14

“If any man sees his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.”

                                                                                                                --I John 5:16
