Apostle Ira Davison was groomed for ministry by the late Dr. Edward H. Boyce of theManhattan Holy Tabernacle in New York City during his 16 year membership. Apostle Davison became a closeacquaintance with the late Dr. C.R. Johnson while attending Manhattan Bible Institute. Through this union, Apostle Davison was introduced to international evangelism on a large scale. He ministered throughout Nairobi, Kenya to more than 100,000 people. As a result of this supernatural crusade, Apostle Davison’s deliverance ministry soared to a whole new level.

In 1980, Apostle Davison and his wife, the late Elder Alzenia Davison, were charged to establish the Greater New Orleans Gospel Temple, Inc. located in New Orleans, Louisiana. Apostle Davison used the radio air-waves to reach countless numbers of souls while in Louisiana. In 1991, he expanded his deliverance ministry under the banner of “New York Deliverance Gospel Temple, Inc.” and entered into his own edifice on October 2, 1993 in Queens Village, New York. He is a witness of the mighty power of God that has yielded supernatural miracles during his 44 years in the ministry.

Steps To Salvation

Steps to Salvation


If you have never invited Jesus to be your Lord and Savior, we invite you to do so now. The Bible promises that when you pray a prayer like the one written here from your heart, you will experience a new life in Christ. These steps will guide you from a life without Christ to a life of eternal glory with Christ once you can just follow the steps below:


Romans 3:23 - For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.


Luke 13:3 - I tell you, nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.


1 John 1:9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.


Isaiah 55:7 - Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.


John 3:16 - For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.


John 1:11 & 12 - He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name.

Once you’ve done this, confess these steps openly:

Father, I come to You just as I am. There is nothing I can do to earn salvation; I cannot work my way into a right relationship with You. The Bible says that we are saved by grace through faith as a gift from You. I confess that I have sinned against You and others. I ask You to forgive me and wash me clean with the precious, life-giving blood of Jesus Christ, Your Son. I believe that He died for me-He took my sin upon Himself and died on the cross for me. And I believe that He was raised from the dead, giving me power over the enemy. Jesus, I ask You to come live inside of me. I don’t understand everything about being a Christian, but I invite You into my life to help me learn daily how I am to live. Thank You, Father, for Your gift of restoration and eternal life. I am so grateful for Your love and mercy. In Jesus’ name, amen.
