Rev. Hopkins favorite Scripture:

Eph 6:11 - Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil.


“It is TIME to get fully dressed and equipped to fight the battle against sin!”


To contact us:

In the name of Jesus, I put on the whole armor of God, that I may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil, for I wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Therefore, I take unto myself the whole armor of God, that I may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. I stand, therefore, having my loins girt about with truth. Your Word, Lord, which is truth, contains all the weapons of my warfare which are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of the strongholds.

I have on the breastplate of righteousness, which is faith and love. My feet are shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. In Christ Jesus I have peace, and pursue peace with all Men. I am a minister of reconciliation proclaiming the good new of the Gospel.

I take the shield of faith, wherewith I am able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God; In the face of all trials, tests, temptations and tribulation, I cut to pieces the snare of the enemy by speaking the Word of God: “Greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world.”

Thank you  Father, for the Whole Armor Christian Life Center. Your Vision shall come to pass, Your Word shall not return void. My power and ability and sufficiency are from God Who has qualified me as a minister and a dispenser of a new covenant. Amen!
