Glory Divine Vision

To be a local church with a global focus.  Our focus is to impact the life of an individual, thereby impacting the community and ultimately impacting the nation.

Glory Divine  Mission

In order to realise its vision, Glory Divine will train, develop and empower leaders and families to become practical in their approach to meet the total need of man –spiritually, materially and financially. The strategy will be , “Give a man a fish and he will go hungry but teach a man to fish and he will never go hungry again.”

 A Word of Encouragement

An opportunity is never lost, it is grabbed by somebody else who has the eagerness, zeal and determination to run with it and succeed.  God wants to give us the strength to overcome past pain, to move forward into new life. Solomon wrote, “Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Proverbs 29:18). So vision is the desire to go ahead. Until you have a vision for your life to go ahead, you will always live in yesterday’s struggles. God is calling you today, but your limitations wants you to live in yesterday. Your limitations and setbacks are dictating on what you can and cannot do. Philippians 4v13 the bible tells us that we can do all things through Jesus Christ. We have the power in us to rise above our limitations. Don’t allow your setback to make you take a step back because God is preparing your comeback. Your latter will be greater than your former. God is preparing a table for you in the midst of your crises. Don’t curse your crises, your crises is working for your benefit. Ask for the wisdom of God in the midst of your crises.


God wants to put desire and zeal in you, God wants your relationship with Him to be restored so that you can be expectant of better and brighter days. It is because of you being so special in the eyes of God that God chose you to read this brochure  today. This moment has been orchestrated by God and planned in heaven so that you can receive the best for your life because you are heaven’s best. Phone us or come and visit us and allow the love of God to direct your life into victory street. Winners never quit and quitters never win. You are God’s greatest miracle, persist until you succeed. You have the backing of heaven.
