    The Church

    The Church is the body of Christ – “So we, (being) many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another”(Romans 12:5) - and as such are living parts. “Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.” (I Peter 2:5) As a body we have the basic goal of maturity and reproduction. Jesus stated this purpose for the Church in the great commission: “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 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.” (Matthew 28:19-20) Teaching produces maturity and world evangelism is the Church’s method of reproduction. 

    The Cathedral of His Glory is not only a church; it is a “Cathedral”. The word “Cathedral” means a “large mother of churches”. The local church should be large. The church in Jerusalem had 3,000 members on the first day (Acts 2:41). It takes the resources of a great number of members to pray for and finance world evangelism! The Cathedral is a “mother of churches”. Over 100 independent churches have come out of the Cathedral of His Glory in the United States. Ministries of His Glory in Central America is supported by and under the Cathedral’s mission program. The Cathedral’s television ministry, “A Word From Glory”, reaches millions each week. 

    Jesus also commissioned the church: “And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; they shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing. It shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover”. (Mark 16:17-18) It is also part of our vision that the Cathedral of His Glory will be a church empowered by the Holy Spirit with Spiritual gifts to carry out its world vision. The gifts must be exercised within the church according to the order of I Corinthians 14 and are signs to the “unbeliever” (I Corinthians 14:22), not to the believer.
