WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO
Global Christian Life Center began as Assemblies of God International Fellowship on 3rd October 1982, mainly for the English speaking Pentecostal community as there were no services available in English in Delhi. Rev and Mrs Doyle Oliver were asked to provide leadership to this new formed fellowship. It began at B-17 Geetanjali Enclave and moved through several locations, including Defence Colony, Connaught Place, South Extension, a couple of city auditoriums to the current meeting place at Vishwa Yuvak Kendra in Chanakyapuri, New Delhi. Along the way Central Assembly of God Church changed its name to Global Christian Life Centre (GCLC).
The church has rapidly grown from its initial six members into several ministries including Missions, Children’s Sunday School, Youth, Men’s, Women’s, Hindi Fellowship, African Fellowship.
Pastor Robert Jeyaraj took over the reins of GCLC in Jan 1984, and has continued as Senior Pastor since then, assisted by anointed and dedicated associate pastors.
We believe our ministry is unto God through our worship, prayer and obedience to the Word of God. Jesus says “love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your mind” (Matt 22:37). We must serve Him through our lives that are set apart for holy living.
We believe our ministry is to the Body of Christ. There is one body and one Spirit. We are to make every effort to maintain the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. We must spur on one another towards love, good deeds and encouragement.
We believe in our ministry to the world. In obedience to the Great Commission (Matt 28:16-20), we must make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything God has commanded us.Our ministry is to care for the poor and the needy through social educational and compassionate ministries
Salvation forms the core of our Christian faith by proclaiming God’s victory over sin in our lives. This truth results in deliverance, healing and restored lives. Every believer, whether new or mature, should have a clear understanding of salvation and the difference this truth makes in our lives and churches.
Wherever Jesus went, He ministered with compassion and healed the sick. Christ’s example showed an interconnection with salvation, as many believed in Him following their healing. Our Lord continues to heal today and it is vital that the church preaches, teaches and practices this biblical truth. Scripture commands believers to pray in faith and trust God for the outcome.
The doctrine of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit is our distinctive belief. This truth explains the passion and power of our witness. Jesus promised His followers they would receive power from on high so that they would be His witnesses. We believe this truth is just as relevant today as our Fellowship continues to take the gospel message around the globe.
With the world experiencing natural disasters, economic downturns and increasing uncertainties on many fronts, the doctrine of Christ’s Second Coming is more relevant than ever. Believers must rest in the certainty of the imminent return of our Lord and share this hope with others.
