GGM VISION STATEMENT
The vision of Gatekeepers Global Ministries is to be part of a world-wide company of apostolic ministries, fulfilling the Great Commission and the two Great Commandments and preaching and teaching the message of the Kingdom of God with salvations, signs and wonders following. GGM is committed to transforming lives through the power of the word of God and the ministry of the Holy Spirit. We invite you to partner with us in the harvest as we preach the Gospel, cleanse the lepers, drive out demons, pray for the sick and raise the dead in the beautiful name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
GGM is committed to discipleship, equipping and empowering leaders and believers and to maturing the church in preparation for the return of Christ. GGM is involved in Kingdom building throughout the nations. Our vision embraces the five-fold ministry offices, raising up the next generation, moving in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, evangelism and discipleship/training and equipping, mentoring and church planting/creating Kingdom communities and Apostolic Hubs in culturally relevant settings.
GGM is a non-denominational Christian ministry, led by Apostle Catherine Brown, who is assisted by a team of volunteers and global partners. The ministry is accountable to two spiritual fathers. These are Apostle John P Kelly (ICAL, USA); Bishop Aloysious Kiiza, Lift up Jesus Ministries, Uganda.
GGM is committed to:
Fulfilling the Great Commission with a global mandate to preach the Good News of the Gospel and the Kingdom of God until the Lord returns.
19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
This Apostolic Commission embraces the ethos that the church is appointed and authorised by Christ and empowered and sent by the Holy Spirit:
- To be an ambassador for Christ (2 Cor 5:20);
- To be a witness to the Risen Christ in the world (Acts 1:8)
- To make disciples of all nations (Matt 29:19)
- To teach (Matt 29:30) and to preach the word of God (1 Cor 1:27), which includes evangelism, discipleship, addressing heresy and wrong doctrine and church planting.
We believe in water baptism and in the baptism of the Holy Spirit,
3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. John 3
Living by the two great commandments in order that the love of God is the only motivator of all ministry and mission,
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. 38 This is the first and great commandment.39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Matthew 22
To reach out to those who are hurting in the healing love and power of Christ Jesus,
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. Luke 4
To unity through relational networking and partnership with churches, prayer networks/ministries, and other Christian/ mission organisations who love Christ and His kingdom.
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Ephesians 4
To embrace the whole church across all age groups, gender, denominational lines and through all areas of social and cultural strata,
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. 28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. Galatians 3
To preaching the Good News to the Jewish people,
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to ever one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. 17 For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. Romans 1
To the five-fold ministries and discipleship of all believers,
11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: Ephesians 4
To Fatherhood and Sonship,
14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; 17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; 19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Ephesians 3
To mentoring and spiritual parenting,
6 Nor of men sought we glory, neither of you, nor yet of others, when we might have been burdensome, as the apostles of Christ. 7 But we were gentle among you, even as a nurse cherisheth her children: 8 So being affectionately desirous of you, we were willing to have imparted unto you, not the gospel of God only, but also our own souls, because ye were dear unto us. 1 Thessalonians 2:6-8
11 As ye know how we exhorted and comforted and charged every one of you, as a father doth his children, 12 That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory. 1 Thessalonians 2
To honour the Holy Spirit and receive and nurture His gifts to use in servant love,
4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. 5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. 6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. 8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: 11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will. 1 Corinthians 12 (See also Romans 1:11, 1 Cor 12:27-31; 1 Cor 14:1, 37)
To live by the Spirit and surrender to the transformational process of character building to become more like Christ,
23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another. Galatians 5:23-26 (See also Philippians 2)
To remembering those in need in accordance with Jesus’ teaching from Matthew 25,
35 For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: 36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
