Who We Are
Who We Are
Walk In The Light Church Of God, Inc. is an international, non-denominational, Christian Ministry based in Hartford, Connecticut. Founded in 1970 by Archbishop Louella H. Tate, the organization is committed to winning the lost for Jesus Christ who is the Risen Savior to a dying world. For almost 50 years, we have been providing a warm and friendly atmosphere for people who are seeking faith and a more intimate relationship with the Lord.
Under the new spiritual leadership of Archbishop Dexter C. Burke, our Sunday Services are filled with vibrant and meaningful praise and worship, strategic prayer, teaching and preaching of the Word in simple and practical language. Our fellowship is diverse providing a caring atmosphere that will sustain you and help you hold fast to your course.
THE MISSION of Walk In The Light Church of God, Inc. is to
share the message of salvation, love, hope, and life that Jesus Christ offers
to our community and city in need,
in His name, and without discrimination.
"But if we walk in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
OUR VISION is two-fold, yet one in purpose:
- To see every person at Walk In The Light Church of God, Inc. grow and excel spiritually, economically, and socially,
and to become passionately involved in a lifestyle of evangelism and community outreach;
- To see every man, woman, and child in our impoverished yet resilient neighborhoods come to the saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ
and to a lifestyle of hope, empowerment, and healing;
and ultimately to impact our communities, the city, the nation, and the world with the saving love of Jesus Christ.
“We see things so wondrous they can’t be explained” (Habakkuk 1:5).
The Bible, the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings and are the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith and life.
There is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing in three manifestations: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross, the complete and final sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.
The Holy Spirit
The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and during this age, to convict men of sin, regenerate the believing sinner, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service. Man – Man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is therefore lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.
The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become children of God. The Return of Jesus Christ – the personal, pre-millennial, and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ – is our hope and has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.
There will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
The true Church is composed of all such persons, who through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and is united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head.
Baptism and Communion
Water baptism by immersion soon after accepting Christ as personal Savior is a testimony of death to sin and resurrection to a new life. The Lord's Supper is a memorial service setting forth in the sacred and symbolic manner the death of the Lord Jesus Christ; all true believers and only believers should share in it.
“But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of
Jesus Christ His son cleanseth us from all sin” (I John 1:7).
