Get to know Greater Glory Life Center
In 1992 Pastor Andrew and Minister Mary Loyd dedicated themselves for a lifetime commitment to the Lord by opening Love Covenant Word Church.
Greater Glory Life Center (then Love Covenant Word Church) was birthed in Orlando, FL and our first service was held at the Ramada Inn on West Colonial Drive. Everyone knew renting a hotel hall was temporary, so Pastor and Min. Mary ventured out to find a more permanent building located at 4401 South Orange Avenue in Edgewood, Florida.
Life was good in Suite 102, so good, we had to move to a larger facility within the same complex. We doubled our space at Suite 122. Here we had tremendous moves of the Holy Ghost and spent many hours worshiping the Lord. Many things were birthed spiritually for Love Covenant in that building. Pastor and Min. Mary submitted their lives under their spiritual parents, Dr. Leroy and Carolyn Thompson of Ever Increasing Word Ministries. This had a tremendous impact in their lives both spiritually and financially. After five years, the ownership of the building had changed and it was time for us to move on.
Endeavoring to keep their commitment to the Lord and make sure the doors stay open, no matter the cost, we packed up all our belongings and moved the church into 631 W. Lancaster Road in the Lancaster Square Plaza.
Good news travels fast, along with great testimonies of healings, financial gains, lives changed, and souls saved. It didn’t take long for Greater Glory Life Center to outgrow this facility. Even though Pastor and Min Mary considered this a “good” problem, they knew some changes had to be made. Once again, we were on the move as we shifted a few doors down to our present location.

Vision. Mission. Motto.
GREATER GLORY LIFE CENTER is on a mission of love. God desires to have many nations of believers who will develop in His love and display His supernatural nature. This ministry is called to build and enhance believers to their full potential for the work of the ministry. Many people in the kingdom lack knowledge and understanding for the purpose of the supernatural. Greater Glory Life Center will endeavor to teach them corporately and individually how to flow in the supernatural impacting the lives of those who are lost. Our mission is to demonstrate the Word with miracles, signs and wonders of the supernatural until the unbeliever and sinner “come into the unity of faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a mature man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” –Ephesians 4:13
Transforming lives into Christ’s glorious image and lifestyle to affect our families, communities and city, representing Heaven on earth.

4. What core biblical beliefs do you acknowledge?
A. MAN, HIS FALL AND REDEMPTION –
Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world. “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” “As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one.” Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was manifested to undo the work of the devil and gave His life and shed His blood to redeem and restore man back to God (Rom. 5:14; Rom. 3:10; Rom. 3:23; 1 John 3:8). Salvation is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God (Eph. 2:8).
B. ETERNAL LIFE AND THE NEW BIRTH –
Man’s first step toward salvation is Godly sorrow that worketh repentance. The New Birth is necessary to all men, and when experienced produces eternal life (2 Cor. 7:10; 1 John 5:12; John 3:3-5).
C. BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT –
The Baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire is a gift from God as promised by the Lord Jesus Christ to believers in this dispensation and is received subsequent to the New Birth. This experience is accoompanied by the initial evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Holy Spirit Himself gives uttterance (Matt. 3:11; John 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; Acts 2:38-39; Acts 19:1-7; Acts 2:4).
5. What is the biblical basis of your worship services?
Psalm 47:1 KJV O clap your hands, all ye people; shout unto God with the voice of triumph.
Psalm 100:1 AMP Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all you lands! 2 Serve the Lord with gladness! Come before His presence with singing!
1 Corinthian 14:14 KJV For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. 15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.
6. How do I become a member?
