We Believe in Your Destiny
Who We Are
Believing the Christospheric Message
Gospel of Christ Ministries (GCM) is an ever-expanding network of churches founded by Dr. Shawn Smith in 2005, with its headquarters in Douala, Cameroon. The ministry has as mandate to present the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, the loveliness of His person and the perfection of His work with excellence and clarity for the rising of the glorious Church.
The doctrine and practice upheld by Gospel of Christ Ministries is encapsulated in a Statement of Faith drafted by the apostolic overseers, Drs. Shawn and Annie Smith. It can be summarised as Jesus Christ + Nothing = Everything. This is a Christocentric and Christospheric message of the unconditional love of God revealed in Christ for the entire human race.
Making the Gospel Incarnate
We are committed to present Christ by every available means. We believe that through the gift of participation by the Holy Spirit, the Church is involved in the ongoing mission of the triune Godhead to include all humanity into their shared love and to be infused with their shared life. This is the greater commission. It is thus the mission of the Church to embody the Word as Christ did.
In this light, we have established several branches in Cameroon alongside communities of adherents in several localities around the world who follow the teachings of the Man and Woman of God passionately via the internet, on social media and through books and audio-visual materials.
Under the apostolic oversight of Drs. Shawn and Annie Smith, Gospel of Christ Ministries has affected hundreds of thousands of lives around the world with the message of Christ presented through preaching and teaching in these diverse formats and through evangelism campaigns, humanitarian outreaches, seminars and conferences, cultural events, concerts, etc.
The Excesses of God’s Philanthropy and Generosity
“But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared” Titus 3:4
God came on a humanitarian mission. He is the greatest philanthropist in giving His Son to us. Gospel of Christ Ministries has several extensions that relate to different spheres of life. We have several humanitarian arms: A New World Altogether (NWA) and the Institute of Professional Practices which focus on reaching out to widows and orphans, and giving vocational training to the underprivileged. There is also the African Gospel Association for Prisoners’ Evangelism (AGAPE).
We equally have a ministerial network known as Christ Commission International (CCI), and an educational program for ministers of the Gospel known as Theosis Institute.
Gifted Kids Christian Academy, a pre-nursery, nursery and primary educational institution, provides children with education from a Christian perspective.
Participating in the Mission of Christ
“And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;” 2 Corinthians 5:18
The grace commission of GCM is to participate in the mission of Christ in the world and to expand the measure of the Gospel of grace and peace in an ever-increasing manner to reach every man on earth through every available means. We have been sent as the representatives of Jesus Christ to participate in His ministry, to announce to people what has already happened so that they can come to terms with what has already happened.
Our Grace mandate (G3 Mandate) is constituted of the apostleship of “Grace”, “Glory” and “Government”. It entails the advanced teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ entrusted to the Apostle Paul in the first century. It is not just the message of grace, of who He is and what He has done, it is a participation in His life and the extension of His present-day rule and reign here on earth through the Church which is His government.
