The Lord answered me and, said, ''Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that read it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time, at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry wait for it; because it will, surely come, it will not tarry" . Habakkuk 2:2-3
Grace Cathedral is a God-centered, purpose driven, multi-dimensional ministry. Its mandate, is to ''Reaching the Lost at any Cost. To do this, we must arm ourselves for this task by work, preparation, excellence and integrity. We must reach the world by reaching homes, neighborhoods, communities, our city, county, state, region, and the kingdom globally.
The purpose of this ministry is to equip the believer for quality service for the kingdom.
This is done through Bible study, prayer, the assembling of ourselves together to hear the word of God preached and taught, to develop Godly principals, to produce God fearing, spirit led believers and to effectively promote the cause of Christ.. This is the first step to realizing this great vision.
The vision that God has given Apostle Sammy C. Smith is to pastor thousands, evangelize millions, and reach billions. This is not a small vision by any means. We are to have proper facilities to house all of the outreach.
