What We Believe


Believing in God’s Word and Spirit

Youth Under His Glory, also known as YuhGlo, is an initiative that was laid on the hearts of college students who wanted to see a change in the way youth in the church connected with God. In February 2013, three of the people of who later became YuhGlo founders attended a youth conference in North Carolina that completely changed their lives and perspective on God. At the conference, the leaders were greatly inspired to see hundreds of young people sincerely and passionately worshiping the Lord, a sight that was rarely seen in their local churches. Upon their return from the conference, the three leaders decided to start ‘something’. During the first planning meeting, one of the leaders said a prayer asking God that “We would be youth under God’s glory.”
The words from that prayer then became the name of the organization: Youth Under His Glory, YuhGlo. The students who headed this initiative were Samuel Asante, Victor Atta-Dakwa, Doreen Acheampong and Jeffery Poku-Dankwah. On March 3rd 2013, YuhGlo held its first teleconference with over 60 students and young adults calling in from all over the DC Metropolitan Area. The conference line was a great success and it was evident that the Lord had begun a great work within us. Since 2013 YuhGlo has consistently held Bible conference, prayer revivals, summer camps, and multiple community outreaches. As believers who strive to live for the Lord, our desire has been to be used by the Lord to impact the youth of this current generation.


God’s Greatest Gift

The Word of God

We believe that only the sixty-six books of the Bible are the inspired and inerrant Word of God. The Bible is the final authority for all we believe and how we are to live.

(Mt. 5:18; Jn. 10:35; 17:17; 2 Tim. 3:16–17; 2 Pet. 1:20–21)

The Trinity

We believe that the one true God exists eternally in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—and that these, being one God, are equal in deity, power, and glory. God is infinite in love, perfect in judgments, and unchanging in righteousness and mercy. We believe that God not only created the world, but also now upholds, sustains, governs, and providentially directs all that exists, and that He will bring all things to their proper consummation in Christ Jesus, to the glory of His name.

(Ps. 104:1–35; 139; Mt. 10:29–31; 28:19; Acts 17:24–28; 2 Cor. 13:14; Eph. 1:9–12; 4:4–6; Col. 1:16–17; Heb. 1:1–3; Rev. 1:4–6)

God the Father

We believe the heavenly Father is the source of all that exists, whether of matter or spirit. With the Son and the Holy Spirit, He made man, male and female, in His image. By intention, He relates to people as Father, thereby forever declaring His goodwill toward them. In love, He both seeks and receives penitent sinners.

Ps. 68:5; Isa. 64:8; Mt. 5:45; 7:11; Jn. 3:17; Rom. 8:15; 1 Pet. 1:17)

God the Son

We believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ (Messiah), the Son of God; that He is God incarnate, fully God and fully man; that He was eternally preexistent with the Father and the Holy Spirit; and that He was conceived and born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and offered Himself as a penal, substitutionary sacrifice for sinners. By His blood shed at the cross, He obtained for us eternal redemption, the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting. He was raised bodily on the third day and ascended to the right hand of the Father, there to make intercession for the saints forever. He will return to earth again to reign in righteousness.

(Mt. 1:18–25; Jn. 1:1–18; Rom. 8:34; 1 Cor. 15:1–28; 2 Cor. 5:21; Gal. 3:10–14; Eph. 1:7; Phil. 2:6–11; Col. 1:15–23; Heb. 7:25; 9:13–15; 10:19; 1 Pet. 2:21–25; 1 Jn. 2:1–2)

The Holy Spirit

We emphasize on the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead. He is co-equal, co-eternal and co-existent with the Father and with the Son. His ministry upon the earth is to convict and convert man as well as be the great paraclete (comforter, counselor, helper, intercessor, advocate, strengthener and standby) to the body of Christ.

(Mt. 3:11; Jn. 1:12–13; 3:1–15; Acts 4:29–30; Rom. 8:9; 12:3–8; 1 Cor. 12:12–13; 2 Cor. 1:21–22; Gal. 3:1–5; Eph. 1:13–14; 5:18)

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

We emphasize on the baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire as a gift from God to fulfill the promise of Jesus Christ to all believers. With it comes power for life and service and gifts for the work of the ministry. While there is one baptism, there are many infillings of the Spirit to empower the believer for witnessing

(Acts 1:8, 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, Acts 2)


We emphasize on holiness and righteousness as an uncompromising character to embody as a believer in honor of Christ and one’s relationship with Him

(Hebrews 12:14).

The Church

We believe that the Church is God’s primary instrument, through which He is fulfilling His redemptive purposes in the earth. To equip the saints for the work of ministry, God has given the Church apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers. We also affirm the priesthood of all believers and the importance of every Christian being joined with and actively involved in a local community of the saints. We believe that women, no less than men, are called and gifted to proclaim the gospel and do all the works of the kingdom.

(Mt. 16:17–19; Acts 2:17–18, 42; Eph. 3:14–21; 4:11–16; 1 Tim. 2:11–15; Heb. 10:23–25; 1 Pet. 2:4–5, 9–10)

Missions and Service

We believe that God has called the Church to work together in unity and honor in preaching the gospel to all nations, in making disciples, and in remembering the poor and ministering to their needs through sacrificial giving and practical service. This ministry is an expression of the heart of the Lord Jesus Christ and is an essential part of the kingdom of God.

(Isa. 58:6–12; 61:1; Mt. 5:1–7:28; 28:18–20; Lk. 4:18; 21:1–4; Gal. 2:10; 1 Tim. 6:8)
