About us

We are a Christian non-profit organization that strives to exhort, support and be a witness of God’s love to the unsaved. Our aim is to help fellow believers become better equipped in all areas of service for the Kingdom in this ever-changing and technologically advanced age.

Answering God's calling in our lives, we are compelled to bring the Good News to our decaying and spiritually disintegrating world. Through the joined efforts of true followers of Jesus Christ, the only way given under heavens "in Whom we shall be saved".

The founder of TGCM, evangelist and pastor Joseph Bondarenko has been an active Christian leader of the evangelical church in the former Soviet Union. He spent nearly 10 years of his life in Soviet prisons for his faith in Jesus and the proclamation of the Word of God, teaching children and the youth to carry on the torch of faithfulness through Biblical principles. His calling to the ministry was evident through his faithfulness as a pastor and establisher of evangelical churches in Latvia, Russia (Western Siberia), and the United States. Despite numerous death threats from the KGB, he persisted in his mission to encourage believers to stand firm in their faith through the unrelenting storms of persecution.

After the colapse of the Soviet Union, Joseph started massive evangelistic crusades in Russia and former Soviet Republics and helped organize these crusades for Billy Graham and Luis Palau in Russia and Ukraine. His experience as a gifted organizer, evangelist, church-planter and visionary is invaluable to the Christian community as he continues to serve the purposes of God today. At 75, he graduated from International Theological Seminary (ITS) with a Doctorate's degree in Theology. At 77 years of age, he continues to be fruitful for the Lord, passionate and full of enthusiasm; never stops learning and stays young at heart.

Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible is the inerrant, God-breathed and infallible Word of God, and the only revelation given to mankind.

We believe in one God, Creator of all seen and all unseen, yet in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (The Trinity of God).

We believe Jesus Christ is the only Son of the living God, who was born of a virgin, took upon himself human flesh – fully God and fully man, the only mediator between God and man. He lived a sinless earthly life and suffered a shameful death on a cross as atonement for the sins of all people. Jesus paid the price for the redemption of men with His own life and bought salvation by His holy blood restoring a broken relationship with God.

We believe in Jesus’s bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the Father, where He sits at the right hand of the Father and as our High Priest and He will return in glory to establish His everlasting kingdom of peace.

We believe salvation is available through faith in Jesus Christ alone, and not of works. Personal faith and genuine repentance from sins is essential to receive forgiveness and spiritual adoption through the work of the Holy Spirit as sons and daughters of God.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead, who convicts men of sin and enables believers to live a God-pleasing life in obedience to His Word and guides to the path of righteousness. Every believer is sealed by the Holy Spirit who grants believers different gifts according to His will; sanctifies, teaches and empowers them to live victoriously for the glory of the Father in this fallen world.

We believe in sacred early church practices – water baptism in the name of the triune God and Holy Communion in obedience to Christ and his commands.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of those saved and unsaved; for believers – to eternal life in the presence of God, and for the lost – to a final judgment and eternal damnation and separation from God.
