Our Mission
 

We are thankful to God for bringing us as a first Pastor and Pastor's family to work in Gujarat.   Because it was  our desire to work and build on a new Virgin land as Paul says in Rom 15:20  "It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else's foundation." By the grace of God  I started this A. G. Ministries in Gujarat in the year 1991 when the Assemblies of God not even a had a single church in the whole state.   One of my Church youth girl married a person who was working in Gujarat invited me for a seminar and healing crusade.   By the grace of God in one full week of meetings we had very good response and eighty six people took water baptism and eleven people gave their life for full time ministries.   As Apostle Paul says in 1 Cor 3:10  By the grace God has given me, I laid a foundation as an expert builder, and someone else is building on it. But each one should be careful how he builds. In 1 Cor 3:11  For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ.  By the direction of the Holy Spirit I went and worked so far in this Western India.  Even today Assemblies of God has Northern, Southern and Eastern counsel but not the Western.  The task  before us is very big, but we need not to fear since our Lord goes before us. 

Now we are in the city of Baroda, now it is called as Vadodara in the Central part of Gujarat where we established yet another church.  Apart from this church activity we are continuing on his mission work in Jamnagar, Kutch, Jalod, Dahod, Rajesthan border and in M.P. border.  The vision what we have is to bring up Full Time Servants of God in the Fellowship and in the knowledge of the Word of God.  Now, these Evangelists are being trained in two specific areas of the truth, one is practical, to live a holy life [to have Christ like character] and have a testimony among the people, so that to be ready for the second coming of Christ. The other important  task is to equip them with a deeper understanding in the word of God.   Since the blind can not lead the blind. God has helped us to translate in Hindi and Gujarathi some needed Bible meterial for this training. We have a small team of workers for giving this village training.
