About GLIM


Glim banner

The ministry, Gospel Light International Ministries (GLIM) a.k.a. New Covenant Gospel Church, was founded officially on Sunday January 3, 1988. The International Headquarters of the Ministry is based in the ancient City of Benin in Southern Nigeria. It was founded by Rev Dr Felix I. Omobude, one of Nigeria's foremost Gospel ministers. New Covenant Gospel Church is a leading Pentecostal church in Nigeria, with over 80 branch churches and several other affiliate ministries spread across the nation and overseas.

How GLIM Came About


The name Gospel Light did not just come as a mental research. By the circumstances which surrounded me at that point in time, I had cause to leave town, cease from circulation to go and pray. This actually took place at the Precious Palm Royal Hotel (along Benin UgbowoLagos Road). Room No 404 was where I lodged locked, myself up and seeking the face of God. I was confused due to the many troubles that surrounded me then. There I encountered God and he told me to unconditionally forgive all those I perceived hurt me. And He insisted that I did that before he told me the next stage or step to be taken. “Lord but you know that all they are saying about me is not true”, and God said to me, if you want to be useful to me unconditionally forgive them, let them go”. That I did then. In fact in that vision, He put a light in my hand and asked me to continue to light others with the light in my hand and whosoever I did that to also continued to light others and before you knew it, there was a large assembly of light bearers. That is how the gospel light came to be. That vision is still what we're trying to push, whether through TV, our humanitarian outreach (Life Lift Int'l.), educational arm, etc, that vision is still there with us

The Future of GLIM


For us as a Church, we have gone through a lot. 12 persons in a sitting room at 5, Ukpenbo Street, off Otote Textile Mill Road, Benin City (my personal sitting room) to behind the house under palm leaves, later relocated to Eddray Hotel along TV road near Oliha Market, Benin City. And it's been ongoing. The train has not come to a stop yet and as long as we commit ourselves faithfully, to God, the future is in His hands and there is nothing you put in His (God’s) hands that depreciates. We must lift our heads high, follow wherever He leads us.

Our Belief


The Holy Bible


The Bible is the inspired and infallible word of God written by Holy men of God as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. It is accepted as our guide in matters relating to conduct, doctrine and business of our faith (2 Tim 3:16).

The Divine Trinity


There are three distinct personalities in the God-head, The Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. These three though of separate entities are in perfect unity with the same attributes. (Matt 3:16; 19-20; 2Cor. 13:14; John 5:7).

The Incarnation


God was manifested in the flesh (in the person of Jesus Christ), justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, and received up into glory (1 Tim.3:16; John 1:14; 1John 3:8b).

Justification


This is the act of God’s grace whereby we receive forgiveness of sins and stand before God as though we had never sinned (Acts 13:39; Rom.3:25-26; 5:1; Gal.3:24).

Sanctification (Holiness)


The act of God by which we are made holy, through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ. It is INSTANTANEOUS FOR the past and PROGRESSIVE for the present (Heb.12:12; 1Pet.1:2-4; 2Cor.7:1; Eph.1:4; Col.1:18-21)

Repentance


Godly sorrow for sin with a renunciation or forsaking of same
(Acts20:21; Mark1:15; 2Cor.7:19; Ezek.18:21).



The Baptism of the Holy Ghost


It is a divine process whereby the Holy Spirit takes full possession and control of the Christian or the endowment of power from the Lord with the evidence of speaking in tongues. It means to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Eph. 5:18; Luke 24:49; Acts 4:8, 31.

Water Baptism (Immersion)


The immersion of the Christian Believer in water as a testimony of faith in the vicarious death, burial and triumphant resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ (Matt.28:19; Col.2:12; Rom.6:1-11; Acts8:36-39).

The Lord’s Supper


An ordinance commanded by the Lord Jesus Christ in memorial of His death and is strictly limited to Christian believers only and should be observed until He comes again
(1Cor 11:23-36; Matt. 26:26-30).



Rapture of the Church


We believe in the glorious catching up (Rapture) of the saints (Faithful Christian Believers) as revealed in the Holy Scriptures (1Thess.4:15-17)

Christ’s Millennial Reign


We believe in the One Thousand Years (Millennial) reign of Christ on earth. We also believe in the white throne judgment, New Heaven and Eternal Hell (2Thess.1:7-10; Rev.20:4; 11-14; 21:1-3; Matt.25:41-45).
