About Us

Greater Works Ministries is committed to the continual pursuit to fulfill the vision God has given to the ministry to teach the word of God with understanding to reach the lost at any cost, to bring many into a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, and the building of the people by changing their world and giving them the hope to believe again.

The vision of this ministry is the people. The purpose is to be an instrument in which the gospel may be preached, that many would be able to hear and participate in Christian worship meetings within an atmosphere conducive to Christian growth and maturity as so recorded in the Holy Bible.

Come and experience a ministry of integrity with a powerful delivery of God's word and an awesome praise and worship ministry. You will not leave the same way you came in Jesus name.

Unequivocally, we believe in Enter to Worship Exit to Serve!

support our ministry today.

The main way we support the ministries of the church is through donations, tithes and offerings. Together, we accomplish more. In this way, each individual, family, and congregation gives a fair share for the church's work.

We combine our prayers, presence, gifts and service to make a significant difference in the lives of God's people.

Greater Work's Ministries obey God's word by tithing, sowing seeds, & offerings "Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered."—Proverbs11:25
