History of GTCGOP

The history of Glad Tidings Church Of God Of Prophecy begins in the year of 1982 the mission started by Pastor O. Lunan with with Sunday school in the apartment of the late Sister Leah Moodie and the late Sister Norma Brown on Central Ave. in Plainfield, NJ. Reaching the count of 9 people the mission was moved to the Y.M.C.A formally on Watching Ave. The church was organized in 1983 with 7 members and 17 people in attendance. In 1985 Pastor Manton Morris was appointed the Pastor. The Late Mr. Goodwin Saywer, a friend of the church, purchased Everybody’s Food Store located at 306 East Front Street. 306 became the official home of Glad Tidings when Mr. Saywer willingly rented the upper apartment space for our services.

We began to excel and multiply, quickly realizing That this building was. Not large enough, so the search began again. While praying and searching a new change took place. In the year of 1996 Pastor Morris was appointed to district work, and our Pastor Neville Copeland Sr. picked up the mantle where Pastor Morris left off. Knowing not what to do, he looked to God for direction and asked God just as Solomon did for wisdom, knowledge and understanding. We went before the Lord with out petition. In our search for a new home, that would accommodate our ever growing body in Christ, we looked into many places and were turned down many of times, but we kept praying because we knew God had a vision for his people. We held on to faith, and in 2005 the Lord showed us 18 Park Place North Plainfield New Jersey and called this our new home. This was not the end of God’s plan for his body.

What We Believe

WE BELIEVE in the Holy Trinity—one God, eternally existing in Three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in one God, the Father, creator of heaven and earth, of all things seen and unseen.

WE BELIEVE in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father. All things were made through Him and for Him. He is true God and true man. He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and was born of the virgin, Mary. He suffered, died, was buried, and on the third day He rose from the dead. He ascended to the right hand of the Father, and He will return to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

WE BELIEVE in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and giver of life, who eternally proceeds from the Father. He is Teacher, Comforter, Helper, and Giver of spiritual gifts.  Through Him the saving and sanctifying works of Jesus Christ are applied to the life of believers. He is the empowering presence of God in the life of the Christian and the church. The Father has sent His Son to baptize with the Holy Spirit.  Speaking in tongues and bearing the fruit of the Spirit are New Testament signs of being filled with the Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE that salvation is by grace through faith in the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ on the cross and that He died in our place. The believer’s sins are forgiven by the shedding of His blood. We believe that healing of mind, body, soul, and spirit is available to the believer through the blood of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit. We believe in one baptism in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE that the grace of God brings forgiveness and reconciliation to those who repent, as well as transformation in holiness, enabling them to live a Christ-like life. Sanctification is both a definite work of grace and a lifelong process of change in the believer brought by the blood of Jesus, the Word of God, and the enabling power of the Holy Spirit.

WE BELIEVE in one holy, universal church, composed of all true believers in Jesus Christ, offering fellowship and calling for service to men and women of all peoples, nations, cultures, and languages. We believe in the spiritual and ultimate visible unity of the church.

WE BELIEVE that the Bible—both Old and New Testaments—is the inspired Word of God. The Bible is God’s revelation of Himself and His will to humankind, sufficient for instruction in salvation and daily Christian living. The Bible is the Christian’s rule of faith and practice.

WE BELIEVE that God will ultimately reconcile all things in heaven and earth in Christ.

Therefore, we look forward to new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
