Great Light is founded on the principles of The Word of God in its totality to help you grow in faith and develop in your walk with God, especially if you are seeking to walk with God and develop a relationship with Him. We believe in God revealing Himself in Trinity: God The Father, The Son Jesus Christ, and The Holy Spirit. We believe in tithes and offering as it is written in Malachi 3:9-11 so that God will rebuke the devourer for our sakes and also open the windows of Heaven to bless us. We believe in miracles as performed by Jesus Christ Our Lord. We also believe that without faith it is impossible to please God so the vision of Great Light is raising a people that will please God through The Word of Faith and taking the healing power of Jesus Christ all across the globe (Romans 10:17).
Furthermore, the following are other ordinances in the Bible that we also believe in as Jesus taught His disciples to do the same.
1. PRAYING AND FASTING
“And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed” (Acts 14:23; Acts 13:3-4; Matthew 6:16-18)
2. HOLY COMMUNION
“And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you”. (Luke 22:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:24 -27; John 6:53-58; Matthew 26:28)
3. ANOINTING SERVICE
“And it shall cometo pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing” (Isaiah 10:27; James 5:14-15; Luke 7:46; Psalm 45:7; Hebrews 1:9; Exodus 29:7; 30:26; Leviticus 8:10-12)

5. BAPTISM BY IMMERSION
“Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and [of] the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” (John 3:5; Matthew 3:16; Mark 1:8)
6. ALTAR CALL: FOR REPENTANCE, RECONNECTION & REALLIGNMENT
“For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief” (Proverbs 24:16; 2 Corinthians 5:18-19; Colossians 1:19-23; Romans 5:10-11)
