Christian NASA Astronaut, Slated to be Part of Upcoming Artemis Mission Publicly Declares Faith

NASA astronaut Victor Glover, who is slated to be part of the upcoming Artemis mission to the moon, has been making headlines for his public declaration of faith. Sources had it that the Christian astronaut had once taken a Bible and a communion cup to space. 

In a speech to Abell Street Church in Texas, Glover spoke openly about his belief in Jesus Christ and how it has impacted his life and career. He said: “I was able to worship” in space,” Glover told the Texas congregation. “… I was able to take communion every week I was in space.”

NASA, he said, “supported me and my family’s desire to continue to worship and to continue our faith walk even while I was off the planet.” “That was really important to me,” Glover said.

He talked from 2 Peter 1, where the apostle Peter tells the church to “add to your faith virtue, to virtue knowledge, to knowledge self-control, to self-control perseverance, to perseverance godliness, to godliness brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness love.”

“I think the world needs all of those things right now,” Glover told the church, referencing the chapter. “The world needs all of those. We need all of those right now.”

 Glover told the congregation about the need to continue to grow in their faith.

“No matter how long we’ve been in this, whether you’re a preacher, an elder or a deacon, brand new in your faith walk, we all need to be growing,” Glover said.

 “We have a sin nature and we need Jesus,” he said. “Jesus is that bridge that spans sin and gives us a chance of going to heaven.”

Glover revealed that his crew aboard the International Space Station was made up of people of all beliefs – something he enjoyed. He and his crewmates sat in the window and “looked at the earth and had philosophical discussions about God” and “everything under the sun,” he said.

“We had a Catholic up there, a Christian, a few non-believers and a Buddhist,” he said. “And I tell you what – all of us wanted to fellowship in the evening [after] being alone and working hard all day long. And that human desire to be together, to be with our brothers and sisters, is a thing that I think about all the time.”

Glover, who is a father of four and a Navy pilot, said that his faith has been a guiding force in his life since childhood. He shared how his parents instilled a love for God and the church in him from a young age, and how that foundation has helped him navigate the challenges and successes of his career. He spoke about the importance of keeping faith at the forefront of his life, even in the midst of his demanding work as an astronaut.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?


If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
