Gideon Christian Fellowship International has been called by God to be an Apostolic/Prophetic church operating in the five-fold ministry gifts that will bring a sending dimension to the Body of Christ. Our mission is to be a house of prayer and Discipleship for all nations. We will train, activate and release ministry teams and establish churches in strategic locations--locally, nationally and internationally.
Apostle Wooten was inspired to use the name Gideon from the book of Judges in the Old Testament.
“The angel of the Lord appeared unto [Gideon] and said unto him, ‘The Lord is with thee, thou mighty man of valor” (Judges 6:12).
The meaning of Gideon’s name is significant, describing one who bruises or breaks; a destroyer; he that cuts down; a warrior.
Gideon was appointed by God to lead an army of 300 Israelites to defeat their enemy, the Midianites.
The story of this miraculous event is summed up in Judges 7:20-21:
“And the three companies blew the trumpets, and brake the pitchers, and held the lamps in their left hands, and the trumpets in their right hands to blow withal: and they cried.” “The sword of the Lord, and of Gideon.” And they stood every man in his place round about the camp: and all the host [of the enemy] ran, and cried, and fled.”
The church, like Gideon of the Bible, has been called to overturn the altars of evil and utterly destroy the enemies of God in our city, nation, and world.

In Water Baptism…
The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded in the Scriptures. All who repent and believe on Christ as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. This is a declaration to the world that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47, 48; Romans 6:4
Water baptism for the born-again believer is the physical act that shows we have repented of our sins and received Jesus as our Lord and Savior. This act is in obedience to God’s Word.
