Our Goal : Featuring Honorary Bishop Richard A.Copeland - To Achieve The " Great Commission "

 

The goal of Gospel Times Ministries is to help achieve the "Great Commission." God has given Brother Yancey the vision to achieve this goal in the following ways: radio, television, audio, video, certified classes for ministers, believers, and churches. The objective is to reach individuals and congregations through several genres, including music, sermons, and sound Bible Education.

Bishop Richard A.Copeland has done a wonderful job articulating the "WORD OF GOD" at our services.He is a true expert on the life and ministry of Jesus Christ.Please enjoy his sermons on our Audio and Sermon pages.He is a great blessing to GOD'S CHURCH.

Bishop Richard A. Copeland is the Pastor of New Life Temple Church in Orangeburg, SC. Preaching the life and ministry of Jesus is his specialty. He is an ordained Bishop of the Church of God in Christ International.He preaches at many of our regional services.His messages are universal.

We also believe in the "indigenous" Church concept. In modern times, an "indigenous" Church is commonly thought to be one that meets the "three self's" ideas - namely, "self-governing, self-supporting and self-propagating".It is a church with sound doctrine that we can work within each city, state, and nation in the world. Individuals and congregations are invited to join our fellowship.

Need A Friend: We would like for you to feel that you have a connection anywhere you go in the cities, states, and nations of the world.Our website is always available with prayers, songs, and messages.Hopefully, this will help you reach out when you need a friend. Jesus is a friend indeed.Paz y Amar

THE MISSION.......GREAT COMMISSION: Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, to the mountain which Jesus had appointed for them. When they saw Him, they worshiped Him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, ˜All the authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you ; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age  (Mt. 28:16-20).

Church Without Walls: The period from 1910-1931, represents a very important phase of Black History as well as American History; this period covers the beginning and end of the Harlem Renaissance. The close of that period represents the beginning of the great depression. The Harlem Renaissance was normally characterized by poets and writers, with the likes of Hughes and Hurston; however, religion, church, and particularly the sermonĀ defined the modern concept of the "church without walls."

In a Sermon entitled, "A Hungry God", Powell addressed his congregation about the depth of poverty in New York during the Great Depression. He provided clothing, soup kitchens, help with social, and political issues facing families in Harlem. He felt religion was about compassion, care, and service to his people.You and I can add to God's power on Earth. We clothe God by clothing men and women. Jesus interpreted this as meaning to dress men and women when they are naked. When you give men and women coats, shoes and dresses you are giving clothes to God. If the Bible does not mean this it does not mean anything, Adam Clayton Powell, Jr.
