WHO WE ARE

DD Hayes Presiding Bishop, and Co-Pastor Cheryl Hayes

Established as a 501 (c) 3 organization in 1989.  The Gospel Inspirational Fellowship Tabernacle, (G.I.F.T.) was first initiated at RAF Upper Heyford in 1978.  God spoke a word to us and said, “This would be the start of something new!”  After leaving the United Kingdom three years later, Bishop Hayes was led to start a version of the G.I.F.T. in Fort Worth, Texas on the Carswell Air Force Base Chapel.  We established a charter in 1989 and God has been taking us to higher heights ever since that time of inception.

We are ordained by God to be a fellowship of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ to be Light and Salt in this world.  Our supreme desire is to know Christ and to be transformed into His image by the Power of the Holy Spirit.  It is our endeavor to win the Lost at any cost and equip the Saints to be ready warriors to do mighty exploits for the soon coming King of Kings and Lord of Lords.  JESUS CHRIST, THE RIGHTEOUS!

We worshipped in a storefront for over five years and then God blessed us with DEBT FREE LAND to build a place of worship, and also a gymnasium, after school program to assist the children in the community, and also a Computer Laboratory.  We had our Grand Opening of this facility on 27 September, 2009.  Our vision is to win the entire West side of Fort Worth, Texas then spread throughout the state.  The vision of this ministry is yet being unfolded at this present time.

We are a church where:  GOD IS GLORIFIED! THE SAINTS ARE EDIFIED! & THE devil IS HORRIFIED!!!”

Our Motto is:  “WINNING THE LOST - AT ANY COST!”
