TESTIMONY OF REV. MOSES .K
Founder of Gospel to All Nations, Pastor of New Hope Community Church,
and Christian Counselor from South India
I was born into a Christian family. My father was Lutheran and my mother was from a Baptist background. I went to church regularly during my childhood, but I was not saved. My parents were religious. My mother was a prayerful woman. She died when I was 13. I later learned through one of my uncles about my mother’s strong desire and prayers for me that I should serve the Lord.
One day I happened to meet one of my classmates who was born again. He shared his testimony with me, and after that introduced me to a pastor of his fellowship. I attended that church regularly, and some brothers and sisters shared their testimony each Sunday. I heard the testimonies, but there was no change in my life. I had no testimony of my own. I was not sure that my sins were forgiven at that time.
I went to a cottage prayer meeting one day, and the message was from Romans 5:8—“But God commended his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” I listened very intently. I heard those words repeating in my ears continually for nearly three days. I told my pastor, and he said that the Holy Spirit was speaking through the Word of God and that I should confess my sins in the Lord’s presence. I confessed my sins and was baptized by immersion.
I was in fellowship continually with other believers. Later, the Lord called me to the ministry. I never thought I would serve the Lord or preach His Word. I was a graduate of the Polytechnic and my desire was to go to Dubai and earn money. I obeyed the Lord’s call and entered full-time ministry in 2001. I got married, and we are blessed with two sons, and my wife teaches Bible to Deaf and Hearing students.
In India there are many mainline churches and Christian organizations, but still the gospel has not reached many towns, villages and communities. Only 3% of the population in India are Christians. Due to social discrimination, the caste system and poverty, people do not follow Jesus Christ as Savior. God has laid a burden on our hearts to reach communities that are unreached with the message of the Lord Jesus Christ. By the grace of God, four brothers are working with me as my co-pastors. We have one church in the city and others in villages.
VILLAGE EVANGELISM & CHURCH PLANTING
“Jesus went about all the cities and villages…..preaching the gospel of the kingdom…..” Matthew 9:35
We are proclaiming the gospel in unreached villages and establishing house churches where believers meet in rented accommodations. A local pastor is appointed by GOSPEL TO ALL NATIONS to take care of spiritual needs and conduct worship and teaching and set up local prayer cell groups, since many people travel from surrounding areas. Many are being led to faith in Christ (from darkness to light) and then cared for within the local church.
MISSIONARY TRAINING CENTER
The aim of GOSPEL TO ALL NATIONS is to run a regular training program for a minimum of 15 students from different towns who have a desire to evangelize other remote villages and small towns in India. We need support for this training program, because we have to pay for rent, food and accommodations during this period. The program would run for 2 months and provide proper theological training—especially how to do personal evangelism and how to share a personal testimony—after which they would be sent out to 20 unreached villages so that 20 new churches would be planted.
It is likely that during this time they would need continued support until they become self-supporting, which could take up to three years. There are tens of thousands of villages that are unreached, so this program is vital and needs to develop quickly if we are to spread the gospel.
“And how shall they preach unless they are sent ….” Romans 10:15.
NEW HOPE CHILDREN’S HOME
Our ministry goals are:
· Support of orphans and vulnerable children through good, quality education.
· Discouraging all forms of child abandonment through creating awareness in the areas of child labor, teen pregnancy, the Children’s Act or laws regarding children, family planning, reproductive health, etc.
· Emotional and psychological support for families or caregivers in the form of counseling and education on challenges associated with POVERTY, LOSS OF PARENTS AND SINGLE PARENTING.
Currently the project is supporting 20 orphaned and vulnerable children and their families or caregivers in five communities. The beneficiary communities are from Hyderabad, Nalgonda, and Rangareddy districts. Please do pray. We need to build a shelter (dormitory). Please contact us if God leads you to support this project.

STATEMENT OF FAITH
THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
We believe the Scriptures, including both the Old and New Testament, to be the verbally inspired Word of God, written by men in God's control, inerrant and infallible in the original manuscripts and the final authority in faith and life (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:20, 21; Psalm 19:7-9).
We believe in the one true God who is an intelligent, sovereign, spiritual and personal Being; perfect, infinite, and eternal in His being, holiness and love, wisdom and power; absolutely separate from and above the world as its Creator, yet everywhere present in the world as the Upholder of all things. He is revealed to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three distinct persons but without division of nature, essence or being, and each having a distinct ministry in God's relation to His creation and people (Genesis 1:1; Exodus 15:11; Psalm 83:18, 139:7-9; Matthew 28:19; John 10:30, 15:26).
THE PERSON AND WORK OF CHRIST
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man. This redemption He accomplished by voluntarily giving Himself as a sinless substitutionary sacrifice on the cross, thereby satisfying God's righteous judgments against sin. After substantiating the accomplishment of that redemption by His bodily resurrection from the grave, He ascended to the right hand of His Father where He intercedes on behalf of those who have received Him as Savior (John 1:1,2,12,14,18; Luke 1:34,35; Romans 3:24-26, 8:34; Galatians 4:4,5; Hebrews 4:14-16; 1 John 2:1,2).
THE PERSON AND WORK OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Divine Person who convicts the world of sin; that He alone brings new life to those who are spiritually dead; that He baptizes all believers into the one true Church, which is the Body of Christ; that He indwells them permanently, seals them unto the day of redemption, bestows spiritual gifts upon them, and fills those who are yielding to Him (John 16:7-11; 1 Corinthians 12:13; John 14:16,17; Ephesians 4:4).
THE CONDITION OF MAN
We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, in innocence and without sin. But in Adam's sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, became spiritually dead and alienated from God, and man of himself is incapable of remedying his lost and depraved condition (Genesis 1:26, 3:1-24; Romans 3:10-18, 5:12; Ephesians 2:1-3).
We believe that salvation is the gift of God's grace. It cannot be gained by meritorious works, but is freely bestowed upon all who repent of their sins and who put their faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary. All who so trust the Savior are forgiven of their sins and born into the family of God by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:7, 2:8-9; John 1:12, 3:14, 10:28,29; Romans 8:1; Titus 3:5).
SECURITY, ASSURANCE AND RESPONSIBILITY
We believe that all the saved—those in whom God has accomplished His transforming work of grace—are kept by His power and are, thus, secure in Christ forever. It is their privilege to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation. However, this assurance is not the occasion for sin, for God in holiness cannot tolerate persistent sin in His children and in infinite love He corrects them. True faith in Christ is expressed by a fruitful, God-pleasing life (John 10:27-29; Romans 8:29-39; 1 John 5:33; Ephesians 2:10; Romans 12:1,2; Philippians 2:16).
We believe that the true Church, called in the Scripture the Body of Christ, is a spiritual organism into which every person who has trusted Jesus Christ for salvation in this present age has been baptized by the Holy Spirit. The Scripture also teaches the importance of the local church, that a New Testament church is a local assembly of born-again baptized believers united in organization to practice New Testament ordinances, to meet together for worship, prayer, fellowship, teaching, exhortation and a united testimony, and to actively engage in carrying out the Great Commission.
We believe also in the independence and autonomy of the local church, that each New Testament church is free to govern itself without ecclesiastical interference, and should cooperate with other New Testament churches as the Holy Spirit leads; that it is responsible to follow the pattern of the New Testament church and is directly accountable to God.
We further believe the ordinances given to the Local Church are two, baptism and the Lord's Supper, that Baptism is by immersion of believers, thus portraying the death, burial, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ; that the Lord's Supper is the partaking of the bread and cup by the believer as a continuing memorial of the broken body and shed blood of Christ (Ephesians 1:22; 1 Corinthians 12:13; Acts 2:41,42; Matthew 28:19,20; Acts 6:1-5, 13:1-3; Matthew 26:26-30; 1 Corinthians 11:23, 24; Acts 8:38,39).
We believe that angels are powerful spirit beings who are distinct from human beings. Some angels carry out the purposes of God, while others who are "fallen angels" serve Satan, who is a fallen angel himself (Hebrews 1:14; Psalm 8:5; 2 Peter 2;11; 2 Corinthians 11:14; Matthew 25:41).
THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
We believe in the second coming of Christ, that His coming in the air to rapture His Church, which is our blessed Hope, is imminent: that when He has first by resurrection of the dead and translation of the living removed from the earth His waiting Church, He will then pour out the righteous judgments of God upon the unbelieving world and afterwards descend with His Church and establish His glorious and literal kingdom over all the nations for a thousand years (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; James 5:8; Hebrews 10:37; Jude 14,15; Revelation 19:11-16, 20:4-7).
THE ETERNAL STATE
We believe that at death the souls of those who have trusted Christ for salvation pass immediately into His presence and there remain in remain in conscious bliss until the resurrection of the body at His coming for the Church, when soul and body reunited shall be associated with Him forever in glory.
We believe that the souls of unbelievers remain after death in conscious misery until the final judgment of the great white throne at the close of the millennium, when soul and body reunited shall be cast into the lake of fire, not to be annihilated, but to he separated from God in conscious punishment forever (Luke 16:19-26; 2 Corinthians 5:8: Philippians 1:23; 2 Thessalonians 1:7-9; Revelation 20:11-15).
