We believe that every church established by God has the assignment to push back the works of darkness...

Our main objective is to bring light, empowerment and liberty from sin, sickness and poverty through the proclamation of the Gospel of the Kingdom of Heaven to every people group, nation and culture. The gospel of Christ is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believes. 


On Monday evening May 5, 1975, a meeting was held in the home of James and Mary Lamb on Valley Street in New Haven to discuss the prospect of beginning a new ministry. In addition to the Lambs, other ministers present were Christopher and Erminie Williams, and John and Gwendolyn Good. The vision encompassed an assembly with three ministers sharing in the leadership providing diversity for the perfecting and equipping of the saints. The church would provide teaching and training, launching ministries to that end to reach the world. It would also provide support for foreign missions.

Since 1975, Pastor Good and his wife have labored together in ministry at Bible Gospel Center which is presently in Hamden. For more than thirty years, the ministry has included a jail ministry, neighborhood evangelism, radio broadcast, Family Day Summer Camp, The Young Heart's Day Care Center, traveling to the Philippines, Brazil and missionary work in Haiti.

After the passing of John Good, Gwendolyn became the pastor of the church. She pastored for many years, leading and guiding the church while also administrating the day care. In 2013, she stepped down as pastor and became overseer of the work as her son Darius Good took the leadership role. He has maintianed the radio broadcast which currently airs every monday on 1350 WNLK. He also has a podcast show which is on iTunes, a music production company which has released several contemporary gospel records. 


Our mission is to love the Lord our God with all of our heart, mind, and soul. And to love our neighbor like we love ourselves. We believed this is accomplished by presenting our bodies to the Lord and allowing the Holy Spirit to transform our minds so that we may be the light of the world. We strive to look like Chirst, not only in word but also in power.




The Scriptures -


We believe in the Scriptures. Both Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired by God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct.


The Godhead and Deity of Jesus Christ -

We believe in One True God, Who is the eternally Self Existent and Self Revealed "I AM". He is the Creator of all things and the Redeemer of mankind, Revealing Himself as God the Father, God the Son and God Holy Spirit and that He is Sovereign and Absolute in His Authority. 

In the Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the Eternal Son of God, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of a virgin. That He suffered, was crucified, buried and raised from the dead for our complete salvation. 


We believe man was created good and upright without sin; for God said, "Let us make man in Our image, after our likeness." But man, by voluntary transgression against the commandment of God, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ the Son of God. 

The Salvation of man. That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins. That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ. 


We believe in the baptism of the Holy Ghost and fire subsequent to a clean heart, and in speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Spirit. With the baptism comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry. 





The Lord has blessed us with ministers who are dedicated and diligent. They love God with all of their hearts and they love His people.

Sr. Pastor
