Welcome to Grace Covenant Church!!!

Robert Lee Lambert

Hoffman's Head

Grace Covenant Church is a Bible-believing, independent (non-denominational) church group established on the Scriptural principles of holiness and a return of power to the end time Church by another outpouring of the Holy Ghost like that experienced on the day of Pentecost.

 

Robert Lee Lambert pastored the congregation from its inception in 1967 until his death in 1973. The present facility was dedicated to the use of the Lord on July 18, 1999 by our precious brother and servant of God, Dalton Bruce, pastor of Bethel (The House of God), of Freeport, Trinidad, West Indies. Grace Covenant Church is an open assembly; there are no membership rolls.

ELIJAH THE PROPHET The Bible teaches that, before the saints of God are caught up to meet Christ in the air (I Thessalonians 4:13-17), there is to be a return of a ministry with the spirit and power of Elijah. The prophet, Malachi, wrote,

"Behold I send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.” Malachi 4:5&6)

 

Jesus referred to more than one coming of the spirit of Elijah when he spoke of John the Baptist as being “Elias” (Matthew 11:14), but later said,

 

“Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.” (Matthew 17:11)

 

The book of Revelation also speaks of a powerful ministry to visit the church in the end time. Chapter one (verses 16 and 20) speaks of seven stars, seven angels (messengers) to the seven churches of Revelation, chapters two and three. That this seventh messenger must be a prophet is borne out in Revelation 10:7, which says,

 

“But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished….”

 

We believe this prophet to be none other than William Marrion Branham of Jeffersonville, Indiana, USA, who spearheaded a great healing revival that began in the United States and spread to Mexico and Canada and extended to Europe, Africa and India. A number of notable evangelists also received their inspiration to preach from this man. He brought a simple message of repentance and a return to the principles of holiness, as taught by the early apostles, and an outpouring of power by a return to the original Pentecost. He taught water baptism in the Name of Jesus Christ, according to Matthew 28:19, Acts 2:38, 4:12, 8:16, 10:48 and 19:5. He taught us to partake of the Lord’s Supper, a literal partaking of the broken bread and the wine as symbols of the body and the blood or our Lord Jesus Christ (Matthew 26, Mark 14 and Luke 11). He also taught that the believers should humble themselves by the washing of feet as Jesus also taught us (John 13). William Branham also taught that salvation comes by a new birth (John 3) and that only 100% obedience to the Word of God entitles a person to receive the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, which qualifies them for the out-resurrection from among the dead, termed the “rapture”. Believers of the message that William Branham brought can now be found all over the world. His sermons, in the form of audio tapes, as well as in printed and electronic form, have been distributed by the millions, many in foreign languages. Brother Branham directly and indirectly ministered to over 10 million people world-wide. Thousands were healed by our Lord Jesus Christ under the ministry of Brother Branham. Millions of souls were won to the Lord. Kings were prayed for, congressmen were healed. Seven times around the world he preached the Gospel in the power and demonstration of the Holy Ghost and spearheaded the greatest revival in the history of the world since the days of the early apostles.

 

OUR PASTOR, ROBERT LAMBERT In 1959, God, in an outstanding move of His sovereign grace, saved Robert Lee Lambert, revealing to him the judgments coming upon the earth and supernaturally revealing to him that the ministry of Elijah was already on the earth. Brother Lambert was led by God to the ministry of William Branham. He faithfully and fearlessly preached the message of Brother Branham, despite the rejection and opposition of many. After being warned of God to leave certain places and led by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, he moved to Connecticut. There he was able to preach and continually prove Brother Branham’s message on another outpouring of the Holy Spirit with power to come to the end-time Bride of Christ. For more than six years, Robert Lambert was a pastor, friend and counselor, preaching and upholding the great revelations of the Bible, and the message of William Branham. In the summer of 1973, he was cruelly murdered near his home, giving his life, we believe, as the First Martyr for the message of Malachi 4:5&6.

 

LATER AND CURRENT PASTORS Since 1973, two more pastors, Carlton H. McGahee, Jr. and George Parylla, have ministered and have gone on to their reward. Children have grown up to have children of their own. Some people have gone their own way but other believers have come to take up the challenge and to stand shoulder to shoulder with those contending for the faith that was once delivered to the saints. During the years beginning about 1979, Dalton Bruce of Trinidad, West Indies, began to make regular trips to Connecticut to exhort, support and encourage those waiting for the fulfillment of the promises of God. He was supernaturally used of God, in his capacity as a spiritual leader, to counsel, guide and assist the ministers in a time of great spiritual needs without charge for his services. Pastor Bruce’s ministry also began in a most unusual manner and was strengthened and encouraged by the help of Robert Lambert during the several trips he made to Trinidad between 1970 and 1973. His close walk and fellowship with the Lord have fitted him to be an able minister of the Gospel and to have the oversight of several churches in the Caribbean, South America and also the Connecticut assembly. At the time of George Parylla’s passing, Pastor Bruce continued to have the oversight of the Connecticut assembly. Kenneth McGahee Sr., the youngest son of Pastor Carlton McGahee, and who sat under the ministry of both William Branham and Robert Lambert, in due course of time, was selected to be the local pastor, with Gerald Renner as his associate pastor, along with other ministers, Gary Heath, Greg Heath and John Michael McGahee. More recently, Pastor Bruce has felt led of the Lord to relinquish many of his duties to take the lead in exposing the errors, the false doctrines, and outright heresies that have sprung up around the world under the message of William Branham.

 

Today, we wait in hope for the fulfillment of the promise of a return to the power of Pentecost (Acts 2:38). Recent world events, conditions within the professing church around the world and the obvious apostate condition of many so-called Christians, today, cause us to realize that, as every seed must bring forth of its kind, so the seeds of doubt, fear, unbelief, love of the world and its entertainments, lust for power and riches, must mature in the end-time before Christ makes His appearance to the world. Unbelievers are not known by roots, leaves, or flowers, but;

 

“by their fruits ye shall know them.” (Matthew 7:1-20)

 

Truly did Jesus say that as it was in the days of Lot,

“Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.” (Luke 17:28-30)

 

We hope you will truly be edified and blessed as you visit our site.
