Gilgal Gospel Mission is committed to walking in Christ's footsteps to fulfill the Great Commission by Preaching Christ and Planting Churches among the unreached in India.
What is Gilgal?
Gilgal is the place where Egypt's reproach upon Israel was rolled away. India also desperately needs God's cleansing through the light of the gospel. Gilgal Gospel Mission believes that Jesus – “the way and the truth and the life” (Jn 14:6), can set the Indian people free.
Mission Statement: To walk in Christ’s footsteps to fulfill the Great Commission among the unreached (Dalits) in India by preaching Christ and planting churches.
Our Vision: God will use Gilgal Gospel Mission to proclaim the gospel to those who have never before heard throughout India and unto the ends of the world. As it is written in Mt 5:16,”let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works and praise your Father who is in heaven.”
We trust God to mightly use Gilgal Gospel Mission to expand His kingdom on earth – resting on His word and waiting on His promise. As it is written in Isaiah 60:22, “A little one shall become a thousand and a small one shall become a great nation.” Gilgal Gospel Mission is a faith ministry, depending completely upon God’s provision for our every need. He has promised that, “You will drink from the brook, and I have ordered the ravens to feed you there.” 1 Kings 17:4.
Our History: Gilgal Gospel Mission was founded by Rev. Dr. Chelliah and Mrs. K. Christobel Russelliah in Secunderabad, India while Chelliah pastored at St. Thomas Tamil Church in 1974. The Russelliahs were called to share the gospel in surrounding Hindu villages. Many people believed on the Lord Jesus Christ and within five years three churches were establish. Gilgal Gospel Missionss formally registered in 1979 and, for the next 8 years, Gilgal Gospel Mission preached Christ among the unreached through the Indian Missionary Church.
Chelliah came to the U.S. in 1987 to pursue his doctoral education. He graduated in 1994 from Trinity International University and returned to India. Christobel and their daughters joined him in 1997. The Indian Theological Seminary was founded in 1990 and the Children’s Home in 1992.
