Brief History of The Greater Deliverance Church of God Ministries, Inc.

Its Founder and Origin

 
The Reverend Garnet Kingsley Morrison was born in the Island of Jamaica, West Indies, Saint Andrew,  Paisley District.  He began his formal education at Paisley All Age School. As a young man, in 1978, he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at the Bible Truth Church of God in Jamaica, West Indies and due to  his dedication and commitment as a servant in the Ministry; in 1980, he was ordained a Junior Minister by his grandfather the late Bishop Norman Hawthorne, Presiding Bishop of the Bible Truth Church of God, Jamaica, West Indies.

 

Migrating to the United States in 1981 has been a turning point in the life of Garnet both in the ministry and personally. While preparing for the ministry, he has completed numerous studies in different areas of the Ministry, including Leadership training, Evangelism, General Bible and Post Graduate in Theology from the Bible Church of Christ Theological Institute located in the Bronx, NY. Through his scholastic achievement, he is a graduate of SCS School of Computer Studies and TCI Technical Career Institute where he studied consumer electronics.  While serving as a Junior Minister at the Bible Truth Church of God in New York, NY, and with a divine calling to a greater ministry, he was ordained a Minister by the late Bishop Leon A. Bynoe, Presiding Bishop of the Bible Truth Church of God, New York, where he served as an Assistant Pastor.  He then assumed the Pastoral Ministry at Bronx Bible Truth Church of God.  In 1993, he left the Bible Truth Church of God and accepted a Pastoral Ministry at the Community Gospel Truth Church of God, Bronx, NY.  While at Community Gospel Truth, his ministry has grown tremendously with various ministry programs and activities such as Sunday school, evangelism and children ministry throughout the week.  Soon after, he was appointed the Overseer.  He served this church for a few years. In May 2010, he decided to take his ministry in a different direction; therefore, with the blessings from the Presiding Bishop of the Community Gospel Truth Church of God and the Almighty God, he set out to organize the present church.  The church started at his home in Bronx, NY with a team of 45 adults and youths.

 

In approximately two weeks after, the group rented an auditorium at a Middle School in Bronx, NY.  After nearly 2 years at the school’s auditorium, we moved to a rented space at 706 East 215th Street, Bronx, NY, and in December 2015, we purchased the property at 52 West Kingsbridge Road, Mount Vernon, NY.

 
 
OBJECT
 
The Greater Deliverance Church of God Ministries was establish as a house of worship for worship and services to proclaim the gospel of the Grace of Christ as contained in the Pauline Epistle and to provide for the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of people through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and faith in Christ Jesus.

 

It is our goal through the guidance of the Holy Spirit to publish the gospel (good news) of salvation through Bible-trained preachers, Outreach Ministries, the Broadcasting Industry and through Social Media, to lead as many as are in darkness to the full light of the saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ in the United States and other parts of the world.  Therefore, remembering the word of Jesus Christ “The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few; Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth laborers into his harvest (Matthew 9:37-38).
 
By means of the ordination and appointment of Bishops, Overseers, Elders, Pastors, Ministers,  Evangelists, Teachers, Deacons, Missionaries, and other Christian workers who are divinely called and are qualified in accordance with the guidelines in the Articles of Faith of the church, as the General Presbytery may choose, and a complete conviction of the spiritual life within ourselves, we believe that these gifts were given to benefit the church as contained in the Pauline Epistle (Ephesians 4:11-13)
