We Believe

Bishop Christopher A Manley

Whatsoever thy hands findeth to do,

do it with thy might.

Growing up in church in Buffalo NY,  I matriculated from a Door Keeper to Trustee and Minister of Stewardship, then Sunday School Teacher and Youth Pastor to Ordained Elder.  I served on the Board of Directors for the American Baptist Church and the College of Elders for the Full Gospel Baptist Church.

I saw the need for men to operate in there gift and began Men Of Destiny Ministry.

God was still pushing me to another dimension in Him; I obeyed God in 2002 and moved my family to Virginia.  It was in Virginia that I served as an Interim Pastor and assisted in Jail & Substance abuse Ministry.  I received my Bachelor and Masters Degree in Biblical Studies while studying at the North Carolina College of Theology. 

I have also served as a member of the Democratic Caucus & the Chesapeake Advisory Council for Juvenile & 

Domestic Relations.

In 2011, God called me as Founder & Pastor of Greater Works Full Gospel Baptist Church in Elizabeth City, NC.  I served as Adjutant General & in 2016 I was Consecrated and Installed as Adjutant Bishop

for the South-Eastern Region of the

Open Praise Alliance of Covenant Churches. 

I am a part of the Joint College of African-American Pentecostal Bishops.

It is my desire to preach a relevant word

that will challenge every hearing believer

to challenge themselves

to be a better person and to allow

the Word of Christ to dwell richly in them. 

So let us hear the conclusion

of the whole matter. 

Fear God, and keep His commandments:

for this is the whole duty of man.

Join with us as we do Greater Works!

Co Pastor Gailyn D Manley

For this is the Lord's doing and

it is marvelous in our eyes.

I am a native of Buffalo NY.  My husband & I answered the call in 2002 to relocate to Virginia and in 2011, God called us to Elizabeth City, NC to do a Greater Work within the Body of Christ.

I was licensed to preach in 2001 &

Ordained as Co Pastor in 2011 under

Bishop Larry A Boyd of Buffalo NY. 

In 2008, I received my Bachelors Degree in Biblical Studies from

North Carolina School of Theology.

While in Buffalo NY, God used me to form Women Of Wisdom Ministry that helped women exercise their gift

and walk in their calling.   I continued the assignment in Women's Ministry by also working with Pastor's Wives in Virginia.  It has always been my passion to give women an outlet and a spiritual lift while assisting them in reaching their destiny. 

I began my studies as a Life Coach to help women deal with the reality of their Past , live in their present and enjoy their future.  In 2018, I began my Coaching Ministry -

2 Blessed Living. 

Currently, our Greater Works Women's Ministry meet 1 Saturday in the month

for fellowship and offer a safe place for

open conversations on any given topic.

The Bible reminds us that

we will reap if we don't faint;

so let us not get weary in our good works.  And as we continue to believe God

& stay in His will,

together we shall do Greater Works!

My declaration for Luke 11:45:

I am blessed because of what I believe,

and there shall be a performance

of all the things that the Lord has told me!
