To spread the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ throughout the world, through the sending forth of Evangelists and Missionaries as set forth in Matthew 28:19-20

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

We believe in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit and are dedicated to the Holy Bible as the true Word of God. Our Goal is teaching and preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe that salvation is only through Jesus Christ. We believe in building people's lives spiritually, through the power of the Holy Spirit.

We are committed to lifting and building people up to their fullest capacity through acts of compassion. Our ultimate goal is providing services and fellowships to humanity in the integrity of the Holy Bible.

Our vision is to form a church that edifies the individual with compassion, building him/her up with the truth of the Bible, networking with other churches and organizations, honestly declaring salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, the United States and internationally.

In pursuance of winning more souls for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Pastor Agnes Bryant Gbardoe established the Elect Saints Pentecostal Church, Inc. International in 2001. Worship services and church activities were held at the home of Pastor Agnes Bryant Gbardoe at 1428 West State Street, Trenton, New Jersey until October, 2004 when the church began to conduct its worship services and activities in rented space at Trinity Cathedral located at 801 West state Street.

During the period of transition, Elect Saints Church established a branch in the Liberian Refugee Camp at Gomoa Buduburum, Ghana in October 2001 with Deacon Daniel Y. Gbardoe as its Administrator. Today, the church in Ghana stands at a membership of well over 150 persons.

The Friday Evening Prayer Band was established in 1998 this led to the formation of Elect Saints Pentecostal Church, Trenton, NJ, USA in 2001. In 2002 Elect Saints Pentecostal church in Gomoa, Buduburam, Ghana was established. In 2005 Elect Saints Pentecostal Church was established in Liberia.The Martha C. Johnson Little Saints orphanage was established in 2006. In January 2007 Elect Saints was accepted as a Synodically Approved Worshipping Community of the New Jersey Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Internationally, Elect Saints Lutheran Church has about two thousand plus members. Locally we have 125 baptized members in attendance.Thank God for Jesus!

Please read Rev. Agnes ‘My Faith Journey’ below...

I grew up in a Christian home, attended Sunday schools in many other denominations, but attended the Roman Catholic Church most of my adult life until 2003. I was baptized in the Lutheran Church, received confirmation in the Roman Catholic Church. I did not really understand anything about church, Jesus, God or what it meant to be a Christian until I met the late Rev. Martha C. Johnson. She taught me how to read and understand the Bible, and how to pray. My spiritual life started to take shape under her teaching and her guidance. She continued to nurture me under the prompting of the Holy Spirit.

This led into my ordination as a missionary in August of 1998 and later as a minister in July of 1999. I felt the call into Religious Leadership in 1994 while working as a Registered Nurse at the Jamesburg Training School for Boys. My faith journey comes with a lot of encouragement and support from my late mentor, the late Rev. Martha C. Johnson, My spiritual father, Rev. Dr. Daniel G. Gueh, but most especially from my family, my husband, Daniel, children, my mother, my brothers and sisters. I love the Lord with all of my heart and I thank Him everyday for calling me into His ministry to be one of His servants.
