We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God. There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal, future return to this earth in power and glory to rule over the nations. In the blessed hope of the rapture of the Church at Christ's coming. The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ. In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life.
Jesus said, "By this shall all men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another (John 13:35). At Trinity, we believe that sharing our love by caring for and praying for each other is the normal expression of the presence of God in our lives. This is a congregation which loves to welcome visitors and new members into our fellowship. Want you come and experience the joy we share as we worship God together?
Rev. Gabriel Holland, is without doubt one of the most anointed men of God that has lived in recent times; and if anyone deserves to be described as "full of faith and of the Holy Ghost", it is he. He lives and walks continually in the presence of God. And the miracles that accompany his ministry are of the sort that have seldom been seen since the days of the apostles. People - twisted and deformed by disease, others on death's door with cancer or sickness of every kind, are healed by the mighty power of God.
Born in 1941, Gabriel was converted by the Congregationalists at the age of eight. Even then, he was hungry for God and hungry for souls. Later, Gabriel was fully-immersed in water by the Baptists. Gabriel had a hunger after God, and he experienced many breakthroughs into new levels of anointing even well before he experienced the Baptism in the Holy Spirit and speaking in tongues. He was already renowned for his healing ministry, and had seen God move in great power, even well before his Pentecostal experience was being talked about.
unlike many, who basically begin with Baptism in the Spirit as our
first real anointing, for Gabriel this was the culmination of years of
seeking and hungering after God, and so it was much closer to a real
New Testament enduement of "power from on high".
Gabriel Holland: "I had the grounding in Bible teaching among the
Virginia Brethren. I marched under the blood and fire banner of the
Salvation Army, learning to win souls in the open air. I claimed the gift of the Holy Spirit by faith as I waited ten days before the Lord. But in Jordan in 1967, I knelt before God and had an Acts 2:4 experience..." He described this experience as follows: "She [Mrs Harris, a minister's wife] laid her hands on me and then had to go out of the room. The fire fell. It was a wonderful time as I was there with God alone. He bathed me in His power. I was conscience of the cleansing of the precious blood, and I cried out: 'Clean! Clean! Clean!' I was filled with the joy of the consciousness of the cleansing. I was given a vision in which I saw the Lord Jesus Christ. I beheld the empty cross, and I saw Him exalted at the right hand of God the Father. I could speak no longer in English, but I began to praise Him in other tongues as the Spirit of God gave me utterance. I knew then, although I might have received anointings previously, that now, at last, I had received the real Baptism in the Holy Spirit as the apostles received on the day of Pentecost."
There is no stopping Gabriel Holland. He is a flame for God, and the fire falls wherever he goes. He says: "I believe God's ministers are to be flames of fire. Nothing less than flames. Nothing less than mighty instruments, with burning messages, with hearts full of love. They must have a DEPTH OF CONSECRATION, that God has taken full charge of the body, and it exists only that it may manifest the
Glory of God. A Baptism into death in which the person is purified and energized..." He is certainly a possessor of an audacity, a daring, a boldness the like of which has rarely been seen in Christendom in modern times. It is not uncommon for him to announce in his meetings: "Every sermon that Christ preached was prefaced by a model miracle. We are going to follow His example. The first person in this large audience that stands up, whatever his or her sickness, I'll pray for that one and God will deliver him or her." And the first person to stand, even if they are the most deformed cripple, will be healed!
On another typical occasion, a man came forward for prayer for stom-
ach pain, and, commanding the pain to be gone, Holland punched
the man in the stomach so hard that he was sent half-way across the
room (completely healed)! This kind of thing has happened more than once. Holland believes in COMMANDING the sick to be healed in Jesus'
name. His is an aggressive, holy faith. He is a "violent" man, taking
ground from the devil by force. And yet he is also a man of great com-
passion, as well as of great authority. The devil certainly feels it when Gabriel hits town!
One time when Gabriel was waiting at a bus-stop, a woman was having trouble getting her small dog, which had followed her, to go home. First she tried sweet-talking it, and asking it to please go home. But after awhile of trying this to no avail, Gabriel suddenly stamped his foot and said severely: 'Go home at once!' The dog immediately took off home, with it's tail between it's legs. 'That's how you have to treat the devil', said Holland, loudly enough for all those waiting at the bus-stop to hear. And this is his attitude toward the devil, every moment of every waking day. He literally travelled the world in the 1960's and 1970's, and thousands were saved and healed everywhere he went. Often he would arrive in a place almost unknown and unheralded, but within days there would be thousands thronging to hear, the power of God demonstrated in his meetings was so great. God was truly glorified everywhere he went.
He is a man who walks and lives in the very presence of God. And yet,
in many ways he is a very natural, down-to-earth man. And neither
is he afraid of issuing the odd stern rebuke. His object is to be in
constant, unbroken communion with the Father. He spent hours and days fervently seeking God in his early years, now, "Although his life
is a combination of incessant prayer and praise, and every word and
work is an act of worship, he is not given to protracted periods of
fasting and prayer." Instead, he has learned the secret of
being in continuous, intimate communion with God (withdrawing quietly into himself for this purpose), even when he is in a crowd of people. He walks by faith, and he is "in the Spirit" at all times. This is one vital secret to his success. He said, "There are two sides to this Baptism: The first is, you possess the Spirit; The second is that the Spirit possesses you." He has counted the cost, and everything was God's. He is a man who truly understands GODLY AUTHORITY, and he WALKs in it by faith. He says, "'Be filled with the Spirit,' be CRAMMED with the Spirit, so filled that there will be no room left for anything else." This is the way he lives. Full of audacity, full of daring, "full of faith and of the Holy Ghost."
On one occasion, I had been much in prayer on the journey. The bus was full of people whom I knew to be unsaved, but as there was so much talking and joking I could not get in a word for my Master. As the bus was nearing the station, I thought I would wash my hands... and as I returned to the bus, a man jumped up and said, 'Sir, I am a sinner,' and fell on his knees there and then. Soon the whole bus full of people were crying out the same way. They said, 'Who are you? What are you?
Gabriel Holland places great emphasis on purity and holiness, like
all true Revivalists. He said, "You must every day make higher ground. You must deny yourself to make progress with God. You must refuse everything that is not pure and holy. God wants you pure in heart. He wants you to have an intense desire after holiness... Two things will get you to leap out of yourselves into the promises of God today. One is purity, and the other is FAITH, which is kindled more and more BY PURITY." This one statement contains what is probably the key secret to Holland's outstanding success in God. And it is obviously a key that is well worth remembering for us also. Another point to remember is that Gabriel is very aware of the dangers of money, and guarded himself carefully against the possibility of covetousness entering in. He was truly beyond reproach in this area also.
