The Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship International (FGBCF) was founded in 1994 by renowned singer and six Stellar Award winner, Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr., after the Lord pressed on his heart to bridge the gap between Baptist and Pentecostal traditions. The idea from the Lord was to build upon the traditional Baptist Church as a foundation and balance it with more charismatic influences.
10,000+ members later, The Full Gospel Fellowship has become one of the fastest-growing Christian communities in the world. It embraces ministries, churches, individuals, and other entities that acknowledge and accept Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. The Full Gospel Fellowship is inclusive to all baptized believers who recognize and accept the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
The Full Gospel Fellowship consists of regional, state, and district leaders worldwide. It believes in the church’s autonomy; therefore, keeping this in mind, All Nations Church is a separate entity with its leadership team and standards within the ministry.
In November 2015, the Senior Pastor of All Nations Church, Overseer Jonathan L. Woods, Sr., was elevated within the Full Gospel Fellowship to District Overseer of the Birmingham Metropolitan area. Three years later, Overseer Jonathan L. Woods, Sr., was promoted to State Overseer for the State of Alabama in June 2018. On February 21, 2020, Overseer Jonathan L. Woods, Sr., moved from candidacy to Bishop-Elect. He was then consecrated to the office of Bishop on October 9, 2020, by our Presiding Bishop Joseph W. Walker III. Therefore, he is now addressed as Bishop Jonathan L. Woods, Sr., both in the fellowship and All Nations Church setting.
The FGBCFI is headquartered in Atlanta, GA, and our current presiding Bishop is the honorable Bishop Joseph W. Walker, III. To learn more about The Full Gospel Fellowship, visit their website at www.fullgospelbaptist.org.
