Who We Are

One Nation Under God, Inc.

One Nation Under God was birthed by a vision the late John Gimenez had in October of 1978 when he was
preaching at a conference in Oakland, CA. During his message he referenced I Samuel 17:29 where David asked
the question, “Is there not a cause?” That day God spoke to John that indeed there was a cause and a present day
Goliath seeking to destroy the very foundation of our country. A foundation that has always been based on the Word
of God. From that point on, John believed he had a mandate from God to gather a solemn assembly focused on
turning America back to God in prayer.

On April 29, 1980 over 700,000 people gathered from across the nation to pray for God to move in America. This
historic march in our nation’s capital ultimately affected the lives of hundreds of thousands of believers and launched
a vision for a new America built on Godly values and the word of God.

The organization is a coalition of ministries who unite to organize national calls to prayer for the sake of the church
and the nation. Since it’s inception, One Nation Under God has sponsored several solemn assemblies focused on
prayer, repentance, and change.
Here is a brief chronology…

  • 1980 - Washington for Jesus 80 on the National Mall in DC
              This solemn assembly was focused on God healing the land.

  • 1981 -1982 - America For Jesus

                to pray for the nation.

  • 1988 - Washington for Jesus 88 on the National Mall in D.C.
              This prayer gathering was a time of repentance for a failing church.

              This assembly focused on bringing down strongholds& activating a new generation.

  • 2004 - America For Jesus 2004 on the National Mall in Washington D.C.
              This rally was originally a prayer event for Latinos in the church of America but eventually was opened
              up for everyone to attend to pray for the nation.

  • 2007 - The Assembly 2007 in Virginia Beach Virginia on the Oceanfront
               This rally was organized to rededicate America back to God through the planting of the cross to renew
                the 400 year old covenant of Chaplain Robert Hunt and the Jamestown colonists.


“If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their
wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”- II Chronicles 7:14 (NKJV)
