Balm of Gilead Healing & Deliverance Ministries (“BOGHDM”) is founded by Bishop Godwin Kwawu, a well noted teacher and pastor of the message of Jesus Christ.
The ministry began with his wife Pastor Vania and only a few members with a desire for God. BOGHDM shares the Word of God by inviting people to experience the Word, power and manifestation of the Spirit that changes lives. Through this ministry, families have been delivered from bondages, confusion in life. Bishop God is a humble and God-fearing man. He is often invited to conventions, crusades and a guest speaker.
BOGHDM aims to teach people to know what God has put inside of them, how to apply biblical principles into their daily lives to see the life of Jesus more real in their lives.
Statement of Faith
We believe in what the Holy Bible gives as the foundation principles of the doctrines of Christ.
We believe in the Bible, which has the inspired and infallible Word of God, written by holy men of God, as they were moved by the Holy Ghost (2 Peter 1:20-21).
We believe that there is one might God everlasting (Deut. 6:4). Omniscient and omnipresent Holy existent in three persons revealed to us as God the Father (in creation Genesis 1:26; Deuteronomy 6:4, Ephesians 4:5,6), God the Son (in redemption John 1:1-4 and Colossians 1:14,15, Mark 1:10-11) and God the Holy Ghost (in His truth John 14:16) to comfort the believers eternally.
We believe that Christ Jesus is both divine and human (Mark 1:1-10; John 1:4; John 10:30; Hebrews 1:1-5; 1 Timothy 6:13) and was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of a virgin. He died, was buried and resurrected from the dead Rom. 8:11 and John 20:25-29 and He ascended into heaven Luke 24:51; Mark 16:19; Acts 1:9.
We believe that the redemption plan of God for humankind is true repentance and faith in the powerful blood of Jesus that we are cleansed from sin (Ephesians. 2:8-9; Acts 3:19; Colossians 1:14; Luke 24:47).
We believe that when a believer desire and seek to receive the Holy Spirit, he/she receive enablement for Christ witness as a Christian for service (John 14:26; Acts 1:8-9; Acts 2:4; Ephesians 6:10).
We believe that God the Father has sent the Holy Spirit after Christ ascended to heaven so that by the hearing of the gospel, one should be saved (or born-again) and reconcile with God as they believe (John 3:3-5; Ephesians 2:8,9; Acts 4: 12; Romans 10: 9,10).
We believe in the doctrine of baptisms - the baptism of the Holy Spirit, when one is born-again or being baptised by the Holy Spirit into the body of Christ. The water baptism which is an outward sign of an inward grace (Ephesians 2:8,9) and the baptism of the Holy Spirit, speaking in tongues as the spirit gives utterance (Mark 16:17; Acts 2:4-8 and Acts 2:38).
We believe that the substitute life of Christ Jesus or the work of redemption on the cross provide salvation, divine healing for the body, deliverance for the soul, communion of whosoever believes (Isaiah 53:1-12; 1 Peter 2:24; Acts 3:16; Acts 9:32-35).
We believe in the Lord's Supper as a memorial service symbolising the redemptive work of our Lord Jesus Christ for the communion of the body of Christ (Matthew 26:26-28; 1 Corinthians 10:16,17; 1 Corinthians 11:24-25) for the believers.
We believe that according to the Bible, a believer can receive their healing by use of the anointing oil (Mark 6:13 and James 5:14,15).
We believe in the washing of the feet and anointing of the feet (Deuteronomy 33: 24,25; John 11:2; John 13:5-6; Luke 7:38).
We believe in the sanctifying power of the Word and the Holy Ghost (John 15:3; Romans 15:16
We believe in the rapture of the church and the second coming in glory and power of the Lord of lords and King of kings (Matthew 24: 3, 27,30,31,37; Mark 13:26; 1 Thessalonians. 4:15-17; 1 Corinthians 15:50-54).
We believe in the final resurrection of the saved and unsaved, where the saved will enter into eternal life and joy with the Lord and lost to everlasting judgement. (1 Corinthians 15:12-23; Revelations 20:11,15)
Our vision is to bring the healing Balm to mankind who are afflicted.
To spread the healing Word which will equip, empower, energize and enable our generation with the power of Holy Spirit confirming with miracles, signs and wonders.
