Ministry of the Shepherds
Special Proclamation Prayer for Today
Father, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
Your Word declares that if we, Your people, who are called by Your
name, will humble ourselves and pray and seek Your face and turn
from our wicked ways, then will You hear from heaven and You will
forgive our sin and will heal our land.
(2 Chronicles 7:14)
We bow before Your sacred throne and humbly ask Your
forgiveness for the sin of idolatry! Your word demands; “Thou shalt
have no other gods before Me”, yet we have, under the banner of
pluralism and hedonism, embraced and worshipped the gods of
this world. Take us back to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob!
Through moral and spiritual compromise and complacency, we have
allowed our nation to conform to the ways of the world by turning
away from our spiritual roots found in Your Word.
Our silence has produced a secular nation and all nations that forget
You, shall be forsaken. We ask that You hear our cry, for we need
You, in these desperate times, to lead us out of our politically correct
fog of constant confusion and take us back to Your moral clarity.
O Lord our God, King of the Universe, we confess that America
cannot survive without Your presence. Your statutes founded this
blessed land and we look to You, Father God, to preserve it, for
“Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord.”
As commanded in scripture, we pray for all who are in authority
who govern our nation; may their decisions be led by the perfect
compass of your Holy Word which clearly discerns right from wrong.
(I Timothy 2:1-3)
O Lord our God, You have promised to raise up righteous leaders
into high places and to remove those who have displayed unrighteous
authority. We earnestly pray that You will once again exalt the
righteous and expose the deeds of the ungodly.
America must have spiritual renewal for moral survival! In this
season of prayer, we unite in humble heartfelt hope and ask that You
forgive us and deliver us from the folly of our transgressions. Guide
and sustain our nation as we turn from our sin and return to You,
the God of our fathers. (Psalm 51:1-17)
The time has come to declare our trust in You to heal our land.
(2 Samuel 22:2-4; Psalm 5:11-12; Psalm 57:1-3)
We pledge to exercise our God given rights of “life, liberty and the
pursuit of happiness” in voting for future leaders from the county
courthouse to the White House who obey and honor Your Word.
(Deuteronomy 28:1-14; Psalm 119:44-48; Psalm5:11)
We pledge to vote the Bible in selecting those that will govern our
country. (Deuteronomy 16:18-20)
Blessed are you, O Lord our God, for You are good and Your mercy
endures forever. We petition heaven with our united prayers as we
seek Your blessing, Your peace and Your protection for America.
(I Chronicles 16:34; Numbers 6:22-26; Romans 15:13;
May the Lord our God, be with us, as He was with our forefathers;
may He not leave us or forsake us; so that He may incline our hearts
to Himself, to walk in all His ways... that all peoples of the earth may
know that the Lord is God and that there is no other.
(1 Kings 8:57-60)
ministry of the Shepherds is key to the development of Gods family
ministry of the Shepherds is key to the development of God's Family. Ezekiel 34:12 tells us that "...as a shepherd seeks out his flock on the day he is among his scattered sheep, so I will seek out My sheep and deliver them from all the places where they were scattered on a cloudy and dark day..."
And in John 21:15, Jesus tells Peter to "...feed My lambs...", and in 1 Pet. 5:2-4, "...Shepherd the flock of God which is among you; serving as overseers, not by constraint but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly: not as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock: and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away..."
Praise the Lord for the ministry of the Shepherds that God raises up to teach and lead His people to the soon coming Kingdom. May these ministry resources encourage, guide, and strengthen your ever-growing faith in the Christian Way of LIfe.
```````Statement of Beliefs of the Worldwide Church of God and Grace Communion International Ministry
Pastor Joe Tkach
In one holy, loving, all-powerful, and gracious Creator God who exists in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
That the Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, fully authoritative for all matters of faith and practice.
That Jesus Christ, born of the virgin Mary, fully God and fully human, is both Lord and Savior.
That Jesus Christ suffered and died on the cross for human sin, that he was raised bodily on the third day, and that he ascended to heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father.

In the Holy Spirit, who brings sinners to repentance, who gives eternal life to believers, and who lives in them to conform them to the image of Jesus Christ.
That Christians should gather in regular fellowship and live lives of faith that make evident the good news that humans enter the kingdom of God by putting their trust in Jesus Christ.
In the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
That salvation comes not by works, but only by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ.
In the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come.
Paula White Ministry
When God moved Pastor Randy and myself from Washington, DC to Tampa, FL in 1990, He laid on our hearts an incredible ministry vision: broken and hurting children and youth.
We began a church ministry, called South Tampa Christian Center, with 5 people on July 11, 1991 -- in a storefront -- and began to reach out and touch others with the love and Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The first purchase we made as a 50-member church was a 24-foot vehicle, which served as a rolling theater. This outreach truck went into government housing areas and performed a one-hour "Nickelodeon" type program, which encouraged high values and morals for the children and residents there.
We stand in amazement of the phenomenal blessings and increase of God since that day of small beginnings. Part of our ministry mandate is not only to impact our city, but also to train and equip leadership around the nation and the world to make a difference in their cities. Thus far, tens of thousands of people and members of ministries have been trained since May of 1994, through our Operation Explosion International Training Center, held quarterly.
We have since developed and overseen more than 200 ministries that serve the felt needs of both the church body and community. As a symbol of our growth and desire to impact every person for Jesus Christ, we unveiled our new name, Without Walls International Church, in 1997.
As a multi-cultural family of believers, Without Walls International Church strongly believes that God has the power to restore individuals to their fullest potential.
We believe that Matthew 28:19, "Go ye therefore, and 'teach' all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost," is the Great Commission, not the great "suggestion".
John Hagee Ministry
The mission of John Hagee Ministries is to aggressively fulfill the commission that Jesus Christ gave to his followers to go into the world and make disciples of all people. Our purpose is to bring the lost to Jesus Christ and to build up and encourage those who are already believers.
We pledge to our viewers & supporters to take The Gospel to all the World and to all Generations.
God Has A Long Range Plan
As difficult as it may be to understand, some tragedies reflect the long-range plan of God. We know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love Him
and are according to His purpose (Rom. 8:28).
We must remember that He has a redemptive purpose for our pain and suffering. It is not possible for the finite mind of a man to know the infinite mind of God. The Bible says,
"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts" (Isa. 55:9).
The Crucifixion looked like a great tragedy. The blood-soaked body of Jesus, the promised Messiah, hung on a Roman cross- a portrait of shame and defeat. The disciples had scattered in terror. Those who remained near the cross could only look on in abject horror.
It was not possible for Mary, the mother of Jesus, to
understand the full meaning of the cross. God's long-range plan that had begun in the Book of Genesis was completed when Jesus said, "It is finished!"
Many things happen in our lives for which we have no answer. No words of explanation can comfort our hearts. Sometimes God does not make sense to us. In those times, we must trust the will of a sovereign God and know that He is too loving to be unkind and too wise to make a mistake.
Someday we may understand. In the meantime, we must continue to trust and to believe that although the pain we feel is real, it is temporary. -Pastor John Hagee
Joyce Meyer Ministries has a God-ordained mandate to impact the world. We are called to present the Gospel to the lost, disciple nations, feed the hungry, clothe the poor, minister to the elderly, widows and orphans, visit prisoners and reach out to people of all ages and in all walks of life.
God requires in our ministry that we teach people how to apply biblical truth in every facet of their lives and encourage Christians to influence every aspect of the world around them.
Matthew 28:18-20; Isaiah 1:17
With the prayers and support of our friends and partners in ministry around the world, present a creative and relevant message of Christ and His love for people worldwide using the most powerful forms of media and communications available, as well as the development and distribution of practical teaching ministry resources.
We provide global humanitarian aid to hurting people and teach Christians and non-Christians alike how to enjoy everyday life by applying biblical principles in all they do.
In today’s world of accelerating technology and mass media, the possibilities for reaching people with the message of the Gospel are endless. And though the ministry message remains the same, our methods have changed to take advantage of technological advances to reach people where they are—in their homes, cars, workplaces, or wherever the opportunity presents itself.
Thanks to the faithful support of our friends and partners, we have the potential to reach over 3 billion people in our ministries via television, radio, the Internet, printed materials, conferences, and teaching resources. As you explore our site, you will discover how we are working in partnership to help the hurting, encourage the hopeless, and influence leaders for righteousness. Together in ministry we are changing the lives of people around the world as we take advantage of every means possible to share the liberating truth of God’s Word.
Creflo Dollar Ministry

Dollar is the founder and senior pastor of World Changers Church International (WCCI) in College Park, Georgia which serves nearly 30,000 members, and World Changers Church-New York which hosts over 6,000 worshipers each week. With more than 25 years in ministry, Creflo Dollar is committed to bringing the good news of Jesus Christ to people all over the world, literally changing the world one person at a time.
A former educational therapist, Creflo Dollar received the vision for World Changers Ministries Christian Center in 1986.

Over the years the ministry grew rapidly and was renamed World Changers Church International. The congregation moved from the cafeteria to a modest-sized chapel, adding a weekly radio broadcast and four services each Sunday. On December 24, 1995, WCCI moved into its present location, the 8,500-seat sanctuary known as the World Dome.
At a cost of nearly $18 million, the World Dome was built without any bank financing. The construction of the World Dome is a testament to the miracle-working power of God and remains a model of debt-freedom that ministries all over the world emulate.

Ken Copeland ministry
40 Years of Connecting People With God's Love and Faith
In May 1967, Kenneth Copeland was walking along the bed of the Arkansas River in Tulsa, Oklahoma, when the Lord dropped the vision of the ministry into his heart: to preach the gospel to the nations—a call that would include using every available voice to preach the uncompromised message of faith to meet the needs of people worldwide.
It all started though with simple steps of obedience and faith, walking in love and the integrity of God's Word.
B>In 1957 at 20 years of age, with a hit album, Pledge of Love, at #14 on the national charts and #1 on the local charts Kenneth looked to be on his way to a successful singing career appearing on American Bandstand and featured next to Ricky Nelson in Dig Magazine.
But God had other plans. He met Gloria and asked her to marry him on their first date. She said yes. At that time, they lived in a rented apartment with a roll-away bed, coffeepot they cooked in and kept their food on the porch to keep it cold. Things were not abundant but as Gloria sat reading a Bible given to Kenneth from his mother one day she prayed, "God, take my life and do something with it." Shortly thereafter Kenneth became a Christian and five years later at the age of 30 he obeyed God, packed up his family, and moved
Kenneth applied to be Oral Roberts' co-pilot and he was made part of the flight crew attending all the tent meetings and crusades. It was during this time that he was learning exponentially through on-the-job training. Just a few months after Kenneth worked for Oral, God called him to start his own ministry and on September 7, 1967, Kenneth Copeland Ministries was birthed.
"Kenneth Copeland Ministries was birthed out of love for the people and a commitment to bring people the Word," states Kenneth Copeland. "Our lives are totally wrapped up in ministering to the people. When we say, "We're here for you." we mean it to this point—everything we do, everything we preach, every broadcast we come on, everywhere we minister, everything we say and do is prayed, engineered, designed to minister to the people....
God called us to take His message of love and faith to the whole world. We care about you and we want to help you find the answers you need in God's Word.
Kellie Copeland, Kenneth and Gloria's daughter, believes that is what sets Kenneth and Gloria apart. "People all the time use the phrases 'Word church,' 'Word people,' 'Word movement.'" states Kellie. "Forty years ago, faith was ambiguous.
It wasn't a movement. To us, it was just a way of life. Mom and Dad said, 'If we see it in the Word, we're going to form our life around that. We're going to change our life to fit the Word.' It's the way we live our life. Every decision they make is formed around the Word."
"Integrity and integrity in God's Word," continues John Copeland, son and CEO of KCM. "That's what this ministry has stood on for 40 years and will stand on for the next 40 years. People have said word of faith teaches that you don't ever have problems and that's just not true.
Our families have been faced with adversities. Sometimes you just go through something. It's not that you don't face obstacles and don't face adversities, it's what you do when you are faced with those adversities. How do you handle yourself, what do you do? You have a choice. And we were raised not to just take it but to fight it, stand against it, believe God and the integrity of His Word and you will come out on the other side."
Kenneth and Gloria have learned the principle of connecting to God in faith. By the Lord's blessing, they have taught their children, grandchildren and Partners the world over the power of connecting with God and His Word every day in every way in their life, making for a great heritage and legacy.

Rick Amato Ministry
Rick Amato Ministries, or RAM, has been serving the Lord and His people for over 26 years now. Over one million salvation decisions recorded over the course of
time. Now with God’s guidance, Amato is training pastors, churches, evangelists, and others to do the same, claiming at least two million more will be saved and know the true meaning of Grace and the message of Jesus and Him Crucified.
Dr. Amato is also founder and president of KidsCare, a multi-million dollar, non-profit humanitarian and educational organization.
Dr. Amato and his teams have traveled extensively in Russia, China, Cuba, and other post-socialist countries where he personally met with Presidents Gorbachev and Yeltsin and conducted the first and one of the only Gospel preaching crusades in the Kremlin.
The President of the United States has personally received a videotape of Rick Amato’s War On Addiction® campaign. Dr. Amato and his wife, Nancy, are the parents of five (5) children who were at one point all teenagers at the same time. His television special for young people, The Preacher Dude, has aired on VH-1 and Fox television networks.
Sportscaster James Brown, former Congressman Steve Largent, (as well as the late Reggie White), and others are supporters of the War On Addiction®. Dr. Amato has met many celebrities and world leaders like Muhammad Ali, Whoopi Goldberg and Bryant Gumbel on his journey to share his life-changing message with the world.
More recently he presented it to newsman Dan Rather and world-renowned artist Thomas Kinkade in private meetings.
Dr. Amato has traveled in 44 countries and in almost all 50 states. He has spoken face-to-face to well over 1,000,000 elementary, junior high and senior high school students in the last few years, including 630,000 in public, secular lectures.
At one point, Dr. Art Rorheim, founder of Awana, named Dr. Amato national and international chaplain of Awana. Dr. Amato served Awana and its leadership for several years in this capacity.
With tensions escalating in the Middle East and transition afoot within the final remaining communist nation in the Western Hemisphere, Dr. Amato’s international outreach efforts have been at full force.
God used RAM recently to see the delivery of 100,000 Scriptures to the island nation of Cuba. These Scriptures were Cuban designed and translated and were also anonymous, with the first page simply saying, “A gift from your Creator.” This is a FIRST in Cuban and American history!
With government sanctioning, Dr. Amato has already brought over ten million dollars in medicine and surgical equipment into many nations, including over five million to Cuba. The facilitation of American and Cuban doctors working together to save the lives of sick children has birthed a movement of its own.
Dr. Amato and the RAM team believe in spreading the love of grace through the anointing of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God. As the late Baptist spokesman and preacher Jerry Falwell put it, “Rick Amato is not only unusually talented, but supernaturally anointed by God.” Amato calls himself, “a turtle on a fence post.” When asked why, Amato coyly questions, “What do you know when you see a turtle on a fence post? Somebody else put him there.”

And, it's his mission in life to make sure that everyone on earth has the opportunity to know Jesus too.
Benny Hinn Ministry
People around the globe know Pastor Benny Hinn as a noted evangelist, teacher, and the author of best-selling books including Prayer That Gets Results, Lamb of God, and Good Morning, Holy Spirit.
His TV program This Is Your Day! is among the world’s most-watched Christian programs, seen daily in 200 countries.
But there is much more to the story of the man and ministry now impacting the world with the life-saving and miracle-working message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Benny Hinn was born on December 3, 1952, in the port city of Jaffa (part of modern Tel Aviv), Israel, where his family had set up residence as immigrants to Palestine from Greece. In 1968, not long after the Six-Day War, he immigrated with his family to Canada.
In February 1972 Benny Hinn’s life took on an entirely new meaning when he surrendered his heart and life to Jesus Christ as high school friends prayed with him. Soon afterward, he was called to minister the Gospel.
Married in 1979, Benny Hinn and his wife, Suzanne, are the proud parents of three daughters and a son. This past year a son was born to oldest daughter, Jessica, and husband Pastor Michael Koulianos, giving Pastor Benny and Suzanne their first grandchild.
The Hinns reside in Southern California, strategically near the ministry-owned television studio and church in Aliso Viejo. The corporate headquarters for Benny Hinn Ministries / World Healing Center Church is located in Grapevine, Texas.
Benny Hinn: Over 30 Years as Statesman, Author, Broadcaster, Bridge Builder, and Evangelist
In worldwide ministry more than 30 years, Pastor Benny Hinn has preached the Gospel face to face and through television to more than a billion people. Through Holy Spirit Miracle Crusades, Training for Ministry Conferences, TV broadcasts, the Internet, printed page, and audio-video recordings, this evangelist’s straightforward and uncompromising message of God’s love has inspired hundreds of millions to a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Pastor Benny’s ministry is also engaged in crisis relief, children’s homes, and feeding programs, as well as hospital and emergency care. During the past year alone, not only did his ministry help provide food, clothing, shelter, education, and religious training for 46,368 children around the globe (including partnerships with 31 different missionary and relief agencies), but it also continues to underwrite the free care expenses of such powerful outreaches as a hospital in Calcutta, India, where over 200,000 patients are treated annually, and My Father’s House children’s homes in Mexico and the Philippines.
Winning the Lost at Any Cost
Today, Pastor Benny continues to take the message of God’s saving and healing power to the world. Tens of millions attend his Holy Spirit Miracle Crusades each year. Memorable crusades have included audiences up to 7.3 million (in three services) in India, the largest healing service in recorded history. During recent years, he has been welcomed during his travels by kings, prime ministers, and heads of state, yet his message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ continues to be fervent, motivating him to “go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 15:15).
After more than 30 years in ministry as statesman, author, broadcaster, bridge builder, and evangelist, Pastor Benny Hinn remains committed, more than ever, to winning the lost at any cost!
To Strengthen Your Faith
Everyone is talking about the financial crisis! It is on the news everywhere. And people all around the globe seem to be afraid of what is happening in the United States, as well as the world’s major markets.
I am e-mailing this message to tell you that all is well for those who believe and practice the Word of God!
I am not sending this note to repeat to you what you already know, nor am I writing to remind you of the frightening news that is bombarding us every day. Nor do I want to say what the world keeps talking about.
I am writing to personally remind you what God has said to us all along. I want to strengthen you in your faith.
You and I know that financial crises have come and gone, but God’s people who truly trust the Lord have prospered both in times in plenty and in times of lack!
God’s Hand Revealed During Famine
In fact, according to God’s Word, His hand is always revealed in time of lack. For example, as recorded in Genesis 26, Isaac prospered supernaturally and miraculously while King Abimelech and the Philistines all around suffered great loss and famine. Isaac was not affected, not even for one minute!
Look at what happened to Isaac: “For he had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him” (Genesis 26:14). This happened after Isaac sowed seed during famine, an unnatural thing to do, but he received a hundredfold harvest within months! Yet King Abimelech and the Philistines experienced financial disaster daily. They were so envious that finally the king came and asked Abraham’s blessed son to leave: “And Abimelech said unto Isaac, Go from us; for thou art much mightier than we” (Genesis 26:16).
After Isaac left, the Philistines realized more than ever how much Isaac had been blessed. And without the blessing on him, they would have lost their own lives. King Abimelech and the leaders came to him:
And Isaac said unto them, Wherefore come ye to me, seeing ye hate me, and have sent me away from you? And they said, We saw certainly that the Lord was with thee: and we said, Let there be now an oath betwixt us, even betwixt us and thee, and let us make a covenant with thee; That thou wilt do us no hurt, as we have not touched thee, and as we have done unto thee nothing but good, and have sent thee away in peace: thou art now the blessed of the Lord. (Genesis 26:27-29)
What God did for Isaac, He did with Abraham previously, and then He did it again with Jacob afterward and repeatedly with His people Israel.
As a result we are told, “He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee. In famine he shall redeem thee from death: and in war from the power of the sword.… At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh” (Job 5:19-20, 22).
The Righteous Laugh in the Face of Famine!
God will satisfy us financially and physically, even in times of famine and financial chaos: “The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever. They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied” (Psalm 37:18-19).
What God has done He still does. What God has done He will continue to do. This is not the time to fear! This is the time to trust and rejoice in the Lord, for his promises are “yea and amen”—they cannot fail.
The New Testament also tells us, “Being enriched in everything to all bountifulness, which causeth through us thanksgiving to God” (2 Corinthians 9:11).
God Almighty so wants to prosper and bless you. That is God’s plan for you. All He is looking for is your obedience:
Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit. (Jeremiah 17:7-8)
Did He not promise that he would open the windows of heaven that “that there shall not be room enough to receive it” (Malachi 3:10)?
Did not the Son of God Himself also tell us, “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down , and shaken together, and running over , shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again” (Luke 6:38)?
These are not promises of lack. These are promises of supernatural abundance that are beyond our comprehension!
The Door—Giving to the Work of the Lord
The door to supernatural provision, even during famine and chaos, is through obedience and faithfulness to God’s Word. As long as believers support the work of God, they have nothing to fear; but those who do not support the work of God and the spreading of His Gospel do not enjoy that same protection and have much to fear.
Giving to the work of the Lord—I repeat!—giving to the work of the Lord is the secret to abundance! When we join hands with Jesus Christ and give to His work—spreading His Gospel to the ends of the earth—He has guaranteed that we cannot and will not lack financially! The same cannot be said of those who do not give to His work; so I encourage and urge every believer to protect yourself and your family by being generous with the work of God.
All you have to do to secure your present and future is give to the Lord’s work and let your faith be established in God’s Word. The Lord even promised to bless and prosper and protect your children and your children’s children.
When you give to God, you build a wall of protection around you and your family. You cannot lose! It is impossible for you to lose, for your guarantee comes from the highest authority in heaven and on earth.
I am sending you this message to remind you of God’s promise and to tell you as long as your trust is in the Lord, you stand on solid, unmovable, unshaken ground!
Do not let the world or the news weaken your faith in the mighty God of heaven and earth. God is not a man and cannot lie. His promises are eternal, and your life and future are safe. You will be safe forever as long as you trust the Lord.
So today, as you obey His unfailing Word and give to His glorious Gospel, He promises in His Word that He will increase you “on every side” (Psalm 71:21).
Remember, every time you give, the Gospel will be preached, for it is your giving that enables me to preach the Gospel around the world, with the Holy Spirit confirming His Word with signs following.
Honoring Him with Your First fruits
Honor Him today with your substance. Honor Him with the first fruits of all your increase. And He promises in His eternal Word that your barns will be filled with plenty, and your presses will burst out with new wine: “Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine increase. So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine” (Proverbs 3: 9-10)
Give today to the Lord, for surely He will fulfill His Word! Listen to this wonderful promise and apply it to your life—in fact substitute your name as you read it: “He [your name] shall be as a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his [my] fruit in his season; his [my] leaf also shall not wither ; and whatsoever he [I] doeth shall prosper” (Psalm 1:3).
Today sow your seed for the work of the Lord and for the Gospel of His precious Son, our most beloved Lord Jesus. Then go to sleep tonight with peace and tranquility that passes all understanding. And when you wake in the morning you will awaken with a song in your heart, for the Lord rejoices over you in singing.
Sow your seed today, and the God who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that you ask and think will surely prosper you, bless you, and increase you without measure
Remember that your greatest days are ahead. Your future is healthier than your past, brighter than your past, and more prosperous than your past!
Thank you for being my precious partner.
We know it is “not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts” (Zechariah 4:6)…
Preaching the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ,
teaching the unchanging Word of God,
and expecting the mighty and miraculous
power of the Holy Spirit,

Now as a supportive wife and mother of two children, Victoria is an inspiration and mentor to women everywhere.

Jentezen Franklin Ministry
We believe in Salvation through confession of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. (Acts 4:12; Romans 10:9-10; John 14:6)
There is only one living and true God. There are three persons in the Godhead: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:2,27; Matthew 28:19; I John 5:7)
We believe the Holy Bible to be the inspired Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20,21)
We believe Jesus Christ, conceived of the Virgin Mary, is the only begotten Son of the Father. Jesus was crucified, buried and rose from the dead. He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor. (Luke 1:26-33; Hebrews 7:25)
We believe we are justified (declared righteous under the blood of Jesus) when we repent of our sins and believe in Jesus Christ. (Acts 13:38,39; Romans 5:1; I Corinthians 6:11; Mark 1:5)
We believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit with speaking in other tongues, as the Spirit gives the utterance, to be the initial evidence of this experience. We believe in the operation of the nine Gifts of the Spirit and encourage our people to live so that these gifts may be manifest in their lives. (Acts 2:4; Acts 10:44-46; Acts 19:6; I Corinthians 12:4-11)
We believe in water baptism by immersion in water in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. (Matthew 3:11; Matthew 28:18-19; John 14:6)

We believe in the Second Coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ. (Acts 1:10,11; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 1:7)
We believe those who die outside of Christ will be punished in an eternal Hell, but those who die “in Him” shall share in His glory in Heaven forever. (Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:46; John 5:29; Jude 1:7)
We believe in the sacredness of marriage between one man & one woman and family commitment. We promote strong family values. (Ephesians 5:31-33; Ephesians 6:1-4; Hebrews 13:4; Matthew 19:5 Leviticus 18:22; Genesis 2:24)
Andrew Wommack Ministry
Charis Bible College (CBC) is a practical training school founded in 1994 by Andrew Wommack. Andrew is a Bible teacher with a profound message emphasizing God’s unconditional love and grace. His television program, the Gospel Truth, broadcasts daily across America and around the world, changing the way the body of Christ sees God.
When Andrew launched CBC, he wanted it to be more than just a school of academics. He wanted a practical training program that would combine the academic study of God’s Word with practical ministry experience. CBC is fulfilling that vision.
Many attend to answer a call from God and prepare for ministry. Others come just to develop their own personal relationship with the Lord and help loved ones and friends close to them. Whatever the motive, it’s a life-changing experience.
The first year is spent primarily in the classroom getting a strong, biblical foundation. The second year combines classroom teaching with hands-on training in real ministry situations and the privilege of participating in one missions trip abroad. And for those who believe they are called to full-time ministry, the third-year apprenticeship program can provide great on-the-job experience.
CBC offers the ideal environment for transformation, as your mind is renewed by the Word of God. For some, this two-year commitment has restored their lives and their faith. For some, it has been the beginning of a new adventure with God. And for others, it has been the discovery of God’s call on their lives. If God is calling you to CBC, be obedient and take the first step to fulfilling your God-given destiny.
Did you know a Christian can actually die from sickness or disease while the same power that raised Jesus from the dead lies dormant within them?
Or did you know that believers can be overcome with depression, anger, and bitterness, all the while possessing God’s love, joy, and peace in their spirits?
It’s true—they can and they do. Why? Because they really don’t understand what changed when they were born again, and therefore have difficulty receiving the promises of God. The Bible says that every born-again believer has undergone a complete inner transformation.
“Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ” (2 Cor. 5:17-18).

David Jeremiah Ministry
Dr. David Jeremiah, founder of Turning Point Radio and Television Ministries and senior pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church, felt God’s calling on his life at a very early age. Born February 13, 1941 in Toledo, Ohio, Dr. Jeremiah was raised in a family deeply committed to ministry. At the age of 11, the Jeremiah family moved to Dayton, Ohio where his father, Dr. James T. Jeremiah was the Pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church in Toledo, Ohio, and in 1953 became the President of Cedarville College in Cedarville, Ohio.
As Dr. Jeremiah was sensitive to God’s leading in his life, he followed in his father’s footsteps. In 1963, Dr. Jeremiah received a Bachelor of Arts from Cedarville College. In that same year, Dr. Jeremiah married his college sweetheart, Donna Thompson who also was attending Cedarville College as a business major. He went on to earn a Masters degree in Theology from Dallas Theological Seminary in 1967.
He completed additional graduate work at Grace University and was granted the Doctor of Divinity degree from Cedarville College in 1981.
In 1969, Dr. Jeremiah began Blackhawk Baptist Church in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and developed a Christian school grades K through 12. In the 12 years he served as pastor, Blackhawk Baptist Church grew from 7 families to 1300 members. He also launched The Bible Hour television program.
Dr. Jeremiah heeded God’s moving, and in 1981 he and his family moved to California where he became the senior pastor of the Scott Memorial Baptist Church, now the Shadow Mountain Community Church.
Shadow Mountain Community Church is one of the largest churches in San Diego County. It is also the home of San Diego Christian College and Christian Unified Schools which now has three campuses in San Diego County. From 1988 to 1998, Dr. Jeremiah served as the president of San Diego Christian College and in 1998 was named chancellor.
As Dr. Jeremiah began his ministry at Shadow Mountain, he felt God’s calling to continue the broadcast ministry he started in Fort Wayne. In 1982, Turning Point Ministries became a reality.
Today, the Turning Point 30 minute radio program is heard nationally and internationally on over 1800 stations and translator/satellators. In recognition of Dr. Jeremiah’s commitment to teaching the Word of God, he received the Broadcaster of the Year Award in 1999 from the National Religious Broadcasters (NRB) and in August 2002, received the Award of Merit from the Western Chapter of National Religious Broadcasters for Excellence in Broadcasting and Faithfulness in Service. He has served on the Board of Directors for the NRB since 1996.
In April 2000, Turning Point Television was launched and began nationwide programming. Currently, Turning Point Television is seen in all 50 states including Washington D.C. In October 2002, Turning Point Television began airing on the Trinity Broadcasting Network every Sunday morning. The thirty minute broadcast allowed the Word of God to be broadcasted in some 90 million homes in the United States and Europe each week.
Turning Point Television is now carried on many other networks such as FamilyNet, Inspiration Network, DayStar, ION, and most recently METV.
Dr. Jeremiah is a sought after conference speaker for organizations around the country. He is a regular guest speaker at Moody Pastor Conference, Moody Alumni Week and Founder’s Week at Moody Bible Institute. He also speaks at Cedarville College, Dallas Theological Seminary, Billy Graham Training Center, Phil Waldrep’s Senior Adult Celebrations and numerous NFL, NBA and Baseball chapels.
Along with his speaking schedule around the country, Dr. Jeremiah also finds time to fulfill another passion in his life, writing. His books are always gripping and right to the point. Some of his books include, Escape the Coming Night, The Power of Encouragement, What the Bible Says About Angels, Prayer The Great Adventure which brought him The Gold Medallion Award in 1998, God In You, Gifts from God, Jesus Final Warning, A Bend in the Road and Slaying the Giants in Your Life, My Heart’s Desire which gave him another Gold Medallion Award in 2003, Sanctuary, his first daily devotional book, The Things that Matter, Life Wide Open, The Prayer Matrix, Searching for Heaven on Earth, a book that he co-authored with world renown artist, Thomas Kinkade, The Secret of the Light, a second devotional book, Turning Points, and his most recent major book, Captured by Grace, which put Dr. Jeremiah on the best sellers list for "USA Today" and "The Wall Street Journal."
A dedicated family man, Dr. Jeremiah believes that without the support and encouragement of his wife, Donna, Turning Point would have never been brought into existence. He and Donna have 4 grown children and 8 grandchildren.
Dr. Jeremiah’s commitment is to teaching the whole Word of God. His passion for people and his desire to reach the lost are evident in the way he communicates Bible truths and his ability to get right to the important issues. Dr. Jeremiah continues to be excited to see what God is going to do in broadcast ministry around the world through the ministries of Turning Point.

Perry Stone Ministry
Record-breaking revivals, overflow crowds, thousands of people making decisions for Christ describes the ministry of International Evangelist Perry Stone.
Perry, a fourth generation minister, directs one of America’s fastest growing ministries - Voice of Evangelism. From its 70,000 square foot International Ministry Center, Voice of Evangelism is striving to reach the world with the Gospel of Christ through revivals, television, audio/video media, printed material and missionary sponsorship.
Perry, now age forty-eight, began preaching when he was just sixteen. After graduating from high school, he continued his education through Lee University in Cleveland, Tennessee, and later earned a B.A. in Theology from Covenant Life Christian College.
Perry holds the rank of an ordained Bishop with the Church of God, (Cleveland, Tennessee). Perry has also been awarded three honorary degrees. By the age of twenty-three, Perry was conducting record-breaking revivals, some lasting up to eleven weeks. At this young age, Perry was invited to speak at Camp Meetings and conferences, some with as many as 4000-5000 in attendance. Presently, Perry continues to conduct both domestic and international crusades, reaching thousands of people annually.
During his thirty-one years of full time ministry, Perry has authored over forty books and booklets; produced over one-hundred videos and DVD’s; as well as produced hundreds of audio teaching albums series. Over the last two decades, Perry has also found time to write for and publish the magazine, The Voice of Evangelism. In the year 2000, Manna-Fest with Perry Stone, a weekly television program was launched and can be seen nationally and internationally via cable and satellite systems around the world.
He has personally traveled and ministered in over a dozen foreign nations and has placed multiple hundreds of thousands of cassette tapes, books and gospel material into the hands of the believers in nations across the world.
Thousands of tapes have been sent free to the incarcerated and into the hands of the poor in third world countries. Recognized for his anointed and informative preaching, Perry has been able to breach denominational barriers and find attentive listeners from every conceivable religious background.
Although Perry’s first love is evangelism, he has distinguished himself as one of America’s foremost experts on Bible Prophecy. This recognition is not self-appointed. Perry is often featured as a keynote speaker at internationally recognized Prophecy Conferences. He has also been interviewed by nationally recognized Christian television programs, and often enters millions of homes on major Christian networks such as TBN, Daystar and INSP.
Perry’s world travels and his personal contacts with diverse government and military personalities has given him a direct link to “insider information” as it relates to the fulfillment of Bible prophecy.
Through contacts in Israel, Perry was one of the first American ministers to confirm and publicize the search for the ashes of the Red Heifer. A decade before most Americans had ever heard of the Bible Code, Perry had not only heard of it, but had begun informing churches about this now famous phenomena.
The earthquake fault line under the Mount of Olives, the huge birds of prey in the Golan and the healing of the Dead Sea are yet other examples where Perry was one of the first to present the information to the American public. Perry continues to research the ancient prophecies that are now being fulfilled in Israel and throughout the world.
Perry is joined in the ministry by his wife of twenty-five years, Pam, and his two children Jonathan and Amanda. The Stones reside in Cleveland, Tennessee.
Michael Youssef Ministry
Two years ago, at the invitation of national Christian leaders, I visited the Republic of Turkey for the first time. I spoke at various gatherings — including a meeting of pastors from all over the region.
One of my most unforgettable experiences from this trip was meeting a young evangelist who had just been released from prison the night before. His crime? He had witnessed to some high school students with whom he worked. He told me that he considered it a privilege to be imprisoned for the sake of Christ. It was all I could do to hold back my emotions in the presence of such love for Jesus.
Since that visit, there have been numerous accounts of Christians in Turkey — who not only are facing imprisonment for their faith, but also are being tortured and killed. God is undoubtedly at work in this country, and we at Leading The Way are in a unique position to take part in that work.
I believe that Turkey is of strategic importance to the spread of the Gospel for several reasons. As the gateway between Europe and Asia, Turkey bridges both Western and Eastern traditions.
If you were to read the letters and e-mails that we receive from Turkey, you would be greatly encouraged. Last month, a university student wrote to us to say that he is passing on the broadcast times of our program to all the students on his campus. Another said that he started listening to learn English, and he is now learning how to be a follower of Jesus.
I hope that you will pray for our ministry to the Turkish people and for their challenges in the face of intensifying persecution. I also am asking for you to support us with your financial gifts as we continue this work. Our English-Turkish radio program has been on the air in Turkey since 2002 and we also have a follow-up team in place that serves our listeners there.
More recently, we have added a television program — dubbed into Turkish — and are in production on a Turkish television program with lip-synchronization as well as a Turkish language Web site.
I know that you will stand with me so that together we can see churches like Ephesus and Smyrna rise again to take the Gospel throughout these lands.
Along with partners committed to changing the world, Michael Youssef is leading the way for people in spiritual darkness to discover the light of Christ. By passionately proclaiming uncompromising Truth through creative methods, his international team of experts is uniquely providing hope that is revolutionizing lives at home — and around the world.

Living Way Radio
Pastor Jack’s radio ministry started in October 1981 as a weekday, half-hour radio ministry to the members of the congregation at The Church On The Way. The program was originally titled FreeWay and later was renamed Living Way.
Soon the balanced teaching of Pastor Jack was being requested by radio stations world-wide. On the Living Way radio broadcast, Pastor Jack draws on a rich lifetime of study in God’s Word to bring new light and meaning to the listener’s spiritual education.
The Living Way weekday radio program can be heard in over 26 states, and worldwide via this Internet site. Living Way Ministries is a member of the National Religious Broadcasters.
Spirit Formed Television
The television ministry of Pastor Jack Hayford began June 20, 1977 when he ministered a series for the Trinity Broadcasting Network called Teach Us To Pray, which continued until September 1980. In 1979 Pastor Jack also taped the series, Ask Anything, which included his well-known “Nehemiah” teachings. These half-hour telecasts launched Pastor Jack’s broadcast ministry and what has today become Jack Hayford Ministries.
In the late 1980's, the Lord opened up an opportunity for a one-hour television program featuring Pastor Hayford’s pulpit ministry—a reflection of the life and worship of The Church On The Way.
The first broadcast in this new format aired on October 25, 1987; Pastor Jack’s message was “What To Do When You're Downcast.” In April 1991, this one-hour program was renamed, Living Way, and it aired on over 500 television stations for eleven years. Then on September 15, 2002, a new half-hour program, Spirit Formed, was introduced.
On the Spirit Formed TV broadcast, Pastor Jack Hayford teaches from God’s Word in an intimate and personal way—in line with our times and consistent with his practical approach to the Word of God. Spirit Formed can be seen in all 50 states, Canada, and in more than 40 countries in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East over TBN / Channel 7 Europe, as well as worldwide on the web 24/7.
Also known as the Living Way Bookstore, this facet of the ministry distributes the extensive catalogue of audio, video, and published resources of Jack Hayford via the website and by mail/telephone order. Resources include the thousands of teaching messages from his 30-year legacy as pastor of The Church On The Way.
Jack Hayford is the author (or co-author) of more than 100 books and served as the General Editor of the Spirit Filled Life® Bible and the Spirit Filled Life® Commentaries. He is also the composer of over 600 songs, including the internationally known, “Majesty.” Considered a “pastor to pastors,” the resources of his teaching and preaching ministry offer a wealth of wisdom to grow and disciple the Body of Christ.

Jack Van Impe Ministry, The Walking Bibleman
We believe in the verbal inspiration of the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments; the Trinity of the Godhead; the creation of man by the direct act of God; the fall of man and his need for redemption; the Deity, Incarnation and Virgin Birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; His vicarious atonement for the sins of mankind by the shedding of His blood on the cross; the resurrection of His body from the tomb; His ascension into heaven; His personal, imminent return; the Deity of the Holy Spirit; justification of the believer by grace through faith; a literal devil who is our adversary; a literal heaven for the redeemed and a literal hell for the lost; the infallible rule of interpretation of Scripture to be Scripture itself; and the requirement of implicit obedience to the expressed commands of Christ as the standard by which He will judge our love to Him.
To spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 15:3,4), the message of His soon return (Titus 2:13), and the truth of the Bible (II Timothy 3:16) to all peoples in all nations (Acts 1:8) using all available resources to bring Him honor and glory (Colossians 1:18).
Proverbs 3:6: In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths(KJV).
In the minds of millions, Jack Van Impe has become "The Walking Bible," but it didn't happen overnight.
Dr. David Allen set the example. His ability to quote the Scriptures in his work as a successful pastor and teacher convinced Jack of the value of memorization. The authority given his ministry by using Bible verses was easy to see. It is not surprising that one of his students decided to build on the same foundation.
Jack was not the first Van Impe impressed by Dr. Allen's memorization techniques. Oscar Van Impe, Dr. Van Impe's father, had also sat through his classes and had been given Scripture memory assignments. The older Van Impe had tackled the project by arranging verses according to Bible doctrine and placing them on index cards that he could carry with him. It was a means of making double use of his time and changed many waiting hours that would otherwise have been wasted into profitable opportunities for storing God's Word in his heart.
When Oscar went to Belgium he left his Bible memory cards behind. It was an oversight, but turned out to be a blessed blunder. Jack found them, very near the time of his return from backsliding and adopted his father's method. He's still using it today.
As a student, Jack found the verses he programmed into his mind were like good friends. They came to his aid when he needed them. Assignments became easier. Witnessing, a natural experience. And, best of all, this army of Bible verses marched into his ordination examination and rescued him from hours of questioning by the ministers present.
When he struggled with the decision concerning the main thrust of his ministry, it was those Bible verses, now leaping into every sermon, that gave him the confidence he was equipped to preach.
During his evangelistic ministry, the power of God's Word has been consistently demonstrated. He attributes the characteristic lasting effect of his crusades to the saturation of his sermons with the Bible. Sinners are confronted with God's Word, rather than tear-jerking stories. The result is conviction and genuine conversions. Christians are moved to revival because they are forced to see themselves as God sees them. And that is what preaching is all about.
Not everyone appreciates memorization. Even among preachers. One Ohio minister once told Jack that his Scripture quoting was leading him into a stilted form of preaching and would hurt his ministry. Today, that homiletical expert is out of the ministry after the church died under his polished preaching, while Dr. Van Impe is still quoting Scripture and reaping the benefits of its power.
Encounters With Critics and Opponents
Having so much of the Bible committed to memory has equipped Dr. Van Impe for encounters with critics and opponents.
Members of cults who have come unsuspectingly to his door have found themselves at a loss to cope with his plain presentation of Bible truths.
Representing the Michigan Sunday School Association in a 3-hour debate with an atheist and a Roman Catholic priest, on Detroit's radio station WXYZ, Jack quoted over 500 Bible verses in the first two hours of the program. The moderator was so upset at this domination of the debate with unanswerable arguments that he ruled that no more verses could be quoted in the debate. At that announcement, Jack stated that he would have to leave the program, since the purpose of his being there was to present the Bible. With an hour still remaining in the debate, the announcer rescinded his rule and allowed "The Walking Bible" to keep on quoting Scripture.
The moderator of a radio call-in program in Illinois had Dr. Van Impe for a guest. He hated Christianity and claimed to believe only the Old Testament. When the broadcast started, he announced that even though this was a call-in show, he would accept no calls from listeners because he wanted to use the entire hour to tear the evangelist to shreds. He started his tirade by saying, "I can't accept the three-headed God of Christians." In other words, he rejected and mocked the Trinity.
"Well, sir," said Jack, "since you believe only the Old Testament, I'll show you what that part of the Bible has to say about the Trinity."
Beginning then at Genesis 1:1 and showing that the very first mention of God is given in the plural Hebrew word Elohim, he moved through the Old Testament revealing the truth about the Trinity.
He pointed out that the plural word for God (Elohim), was used again at the creation of man (see Genesis 1:26), the Lord has a Son (see Proverbs 30:4), that the Lord speaks to the Lord (see Psalm 110:1), and that the Lord spoke of sending the Lord to the earth (see Zechariah 2:10,11).
At that point, the distressed disc jockey decided it was time to open the program to the calls of listeners.
On a network TV station in Missouri, Jack debated a college professor. The program started with the announcer telling viewers that the debate was between a Christian and an intellectual. Some put-down! But it didn't matter. After being bombarded with the Bible for 12 minutes, the professor surrendered and Jack used the remaining 48 minutes of the program to give his testimony.
Some admirers of Dr. Van Impe's ability to quote 14,000 Bible verses, including virtually the entire New Testament, look upon this accomplishment as the result of a divine gift. "Not so," the memory man replies.
Others think he has a photographic mind. "Wrong again," he insists.
What then is the reason for this unusual feat? "Hard work," he replies.
Desire, Discipline, and Dedication
There are three reasons why Jack Van Impe has become "The Walking Bible." They are desire, discipline, and dedication.
Jack saw the benefits of being saturated with the Bible and he wanted them. Enumerating some of the results of such exposure to inspiration, he says,
"The Word gives us victory over sin (see Psalm 119:11). It makes us clean (see John 15:3). It is the source of faith (see Romans 10:17). It brings blessing (see Revelation 1:3)." (You can tell that he is just beginning to warm to his subject.) He has experienced the difference in his own life. The words of the Bible are no longer just promises for plaques on the wall, nor catchy texts for sermons. They are part and fiber of his very being.
He has developed the necessary self-discipline to make his goal attainable. Like Paul, he has mastered his body (see 1 Corinthians 9:27). Depriving himself of relaxation and sometimes sleep, he has always kept up his memorization of the Bible. With his pressing schedule, it would have been easier to forget those two hours of daily memorization. But ease was not his aim. He wanted to be a man of the Word.
Dr. Van Impe says he spent about 35,000 hours in memorizing 14,000 verses. And that time was all invested for the glory of God. There were no contests to win. No awards to receive. No one challenged him to a memory marathon. His service for Christ here was just as real to him as preaching or leading a soul to Christ. The Scripture memory time was a sacred rendezvous. There were few memory gimmicks used to achieve his goal. The important dimension to this accomplishment was, and is, dedication.
Eager to have others memorize the Bible, Dr. Van Impe has been willing to share the method that has made him "The Walking Bible."
First, he prepares index cards with Bible verses on one side and the references on the other. He generally prepared 50 cards at a time. Others might not want to make that many. The important thing is to get a start with some set number of verses.
He suggests choosing verses by subject or doctrine, not by chapter. At one time, he tried memorizing by chapter, but found himself less able to use the verses quickly. He would lose valuable time working through a number of verses to get to the one he needed. Memorizing by subject or doctrine is more liable to bring verses to mind when a given subject is raised.
Use a good concordance (possibly Young's or Strong's), and make a list of choice verses on the particular word or subject you wish to study. For example, you might take the word "save" or "saved" in studying the doctrine of salvation. Placing the verses on your cards chronologically will help to keep your thoughts organized. You may want to use the following verses: Isaiah 45:22; Jeremiah 8:20; Matthew 1:21; Luke l9:10, John 3:17; Acts 4:12; Romans 10:1; 1 Corinthians 1.21; Ephesians 2:8,9; I Timothy 1:l5, 2:4; and Hebrews 7-25.

The Glorious Good News
World Prophetic Ministry is the parent organization of "The King Is Coming" telecast.
For over half a century, we have proclaimed the Glorious Good News that:
* Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God
* He died to atone for our sins, and rose again from the dead
* By believing on Him as Savior, we can be forgiven of our sins and receive eternal life
* He is in Heaven today, preparing a place for those who love and believe in Him
* He is coming back to Earth again, perhaps very soon, and we need to be ready!
The Bible says,
"Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved." (Acts 16:31)
"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 3:16)
Have you ever said that wonderful "Yes!" to Jesus Christ?
If not, why not? If not yet, why not now? Why not make today the day you become a child of God, a creature of eternal destiny?
Just turn to God in faith believing and tell Him: "Lord, I believe that Jesus Christ is your Son, that He died for my sins on the cross and He rose again. I want now to take Him as my personal Savior. Please come and live in me, and bring me the assurance of salvation, I pray in Jesus' name, amen.
If you have prayed this prayer, accepting Christ as your personal Savior, please let us know so that we can rejoice with you and send you some information about your new life in Christ.

The Future & You!
Everyone wants to know about the future!
But did you know that in a very real way, there are two divergent futures? One is the fate that lies ahead of a world that continues to reject Jesus Christ as Savior. The other is a marvelous destiny that belongs to all who have come to Christ in faith believing.
You and you alone will determine which future will be yours!
Many have complained that Bible Prophecy is a message of "Doom and Gloom," but that is not necessarily the case. Bible Prophecy is simply future history written in advance! Because of that, we recognize it to be the compassionate message of a loving God. It is designed to produce faith in your heart, prompting you to make decisions in your life that will secure a wonderful future for you - both in this life and in the eternities to come.
The fate of the world will be to move into an era of globalism, culminating in a world government, a world religion, and a world economic system. Sadly, that new world order will eventually be led by an evil person that the Bible calls the Antichrist. During his 7 year quest for world domination, over half the people in the world will die!
Admittedly, that message is one of "Doom and Gloom!" But the Good News is that you don't have to be a part of that future. By believing in Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, you become a member of a marvelous entity that is called "the church, which is His body." When you make that decision, you are instantly and eternally saved. You become a creature of destiny!
As a Child of God, you will be spared from the wrath to come by a glorious event that is called "The Rapture of the Church!" You become a joint-heir with Christ, sharing with Him a marvelous inheritance that includes not only this Earth, but the vast reaches of the universe.
There are two futures ahead. Which one will be yours?
If you haven't yet believed on Jesus Christ as Savior, why not do it now?
Today would be a wonderful day to begin the rest of eternity as a victorious Child of God.
Make that decision today. We pray that you will!
If you have made the decision to accept Christ as your personal Savior, please let us know so that we can rejoice with you and send you some information about your new life in Christ.
What to Do if You Miss the Rapture
"For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not precede them who are asleep. For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God; and the dead in Christ shall rise first; Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words." I Thessalonians 4:15-18
Amazing words from the Word of God. But what do they mean? This passage foretells an amazing event we have come to call the Rapture of the Church. It is the time when God will take all living, believing Christians out of the Earth instantaneously:
"Behold, I show you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we all shall be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye..." I Corinthians 15:51
When will this amazing event take place? It will take place at the onset of a terrible 7-year period of time the Bible calls the Tribulation. During those gruesome days, over half the population of the world will die amidst wars, natural catastrophes, plagues, as the result of economic manipulation, and especially at the nefarious hand of an evil world ruler known in the Bible as the Antichrist.
Are we close to that event even now? Well, if you are a Christian, the answer is "Happily, yes!" The Bible is full of signs that indicate the approach of the Tribulation. Globalism, a united Europe, interlaced economies and mounting technology all point to the nearness of that time.
However if you are not a Christian, the answer for you is "Sadly, yes!" Sadly, because if you do not move quickly and come to believe in Jesus as Savior before the Rapture, you will be left behind after the Rapture to take your chances with the Antichrist and the world of his oppression. Your chances of survival will be less that 50/50, and most of those who will survive will be forced to join the new Satanic world economic system. But beware, the Bible says that joining that economic system (called the Mark of the Beast) will involve aligning yourself with the Antichrist, which will erase any chance you have to come to salvation.
But there is hope! Now, before the Rapture, you can believe on Jesus and become a Child of God. And even after the Rapture, you will have an opportunity to become a Tribulation Saint, enduring plagues and persecution, and probably being beheaded for the testimony of Christ.

Winning Walk Ministry with Dr. Ed Young
Dr. H. Edwin Young was born on August 11, 1936, in Laurel, Mississippi. He accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior at the age of 12 through the leading of his pastor’s wife, Mrs. Gates.
Following graduation from high school in Laurel, Dr. Young entered the University of Alabama as an engineering major. Mid-way through his freshman year, challenged by an atheist in his dorm who questioned his belief in God, he began to seek God’s purpose for his life.
Six months later, he surrendered to the call to preach the Gospel, and enrolled at Mississippi College to continue his education.
On June 28, 1959, he married Jo Beth Landrum. Dr. Young’s preparation for the ministry continued at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. His first pastorate was in North Carolina, and he pastored in North and South Carolina until 1978 when he moved to Houston, Texas.
He became the pastor at Second Baptist Church where he continues to pastor today. The congregation has grown from 2,000 members in 1978 to over 48,000 members at five church locations presently.
Dr. Young was elected president of the Southern Baptist Convention in June of 1992 and again in June, 1993. He is the author of many books including, Total Heart Health, The 10 Commandments of Parenting, and The 10 Commandments of Marriage. Dr. Young’s broadcast ministry, The Winning Walk, can be seen and heard across North America and throughout the world.
In 1979, Second Baptist Church in Houston, TX launched its first weekly broadcast of edited worship services on local television, channel 39. The vision for this broadcast was to attract local residents to the church, minister to existing members, and spread the gospel beyond the walls of the church. Little did those early visionaries realize the seeds they were planting…and the worldwide outreach that would grow from that simple desire.
In 1982, a local radio program emerged, as well as television broadcasting on a national network, which provided nationwide exposure.
Today, Winning Walk has grown into an international television, radio and internet outreach. The Winning Walk program and ministry takes its title from Dr. Ed Young’s first book, The Winning Walk: Outfitting For the Christian Adventure.
As Dr. Young points out, walking involves practically every muscle in the body. And no one is born with the ability to walk but it requires training, strength, balance, coordination, determination, and time. Walking with God is no different. Nobody instantly becomes an overcoming Christian.
You must take those first timid steps clinging to the Father's hand before you can walk worthy of your calling as a child of the King. Like all journeys, walking the winning walk requires the proper equipment and preparation. Dr. Young’s passion is to outfit your life with the Word of God, so you will be able to follow wherever the Master leads and experience the abundant life He intends us to have.
The Winning Walk is an outgrowth of Dr. Ed Young’s home church, Second Baptist Church in Houston, TX—a church whose passion is to share the good news of Jesus Christ. The doctrinal statement of the church serves as the basis of our beliefs as a ministry.
Essential Christian Beliefs
GOD: There is one God. He is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He eternally exists in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and one. He is perfect in His many attributes of holiness, love, power, knowledge, justice, and mercy. Genesis 1:1, 26, 27, 3:22; 2 Corinthians 13:14l; 1 Peter 1; Matthew 28:19; Psalm 90:2
JESUS CHRIST: Jesus Christ is God's Son. He is co-equal with the Father. He is both God and man. He was born of a virgin. He lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of His people by dying on a cross. He died to become a substitutionary atonement for the sins of His people. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. Matthew 1:22-23; Romans 1:3-4; Hebrews 4:14-15; Isaiah 9:6; Acts 1:9-11; John 1:1-5; 14:10-30, 14:16-17
HOLY SPIRIT: The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He is the divine helper, assistant, counselor and instructor. He is present in the world to make man aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily. 2 Corinthians 3:17; Acts 1:8; Ephesians 1:13; 5:18; John 16:7-13, 14:16-27; 1 Corinthians 2:12; 3:16; Galatians 5:25
GOD’S WORD: The Bible is God’s Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. The Bible is inspired by God, and is the truth without any mixture of error. It is the sole authority for life. 2 Timothy 1:13; 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:105, 160; 12:6; Proverbs 30:5
HUMAN BEINGS: Human beings are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. As the supreme object of God’s creation, we were designed for dignity. However, Adam’s sin catapulted the creation into a fallen state, and plunged all his descendants into depravity. Thus, all of us are marred by rebellion and disobedience toward God, which is called “sin.” Sin separates people from God and causes many problems in life. Genesis 1:27; Psalm 8:3-6; Romans 3:23; Isaiah 53:6a, 59:1-2
SALVATION: Salvation is God’s free gift to us. We receive this gift through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ alone. Repentance means turning away from our sin and turning towards Christ. Faith means trusting in Christ alone for the remission of our sins. When we place our faith in Jesus Christ, His perfect obedience is credited to us so that God sees us as the righteousness of Christ. Every person who truly is saved is eternally secure in the Lord Jesus Christ and will spend eternity in heaven, while those who die in their sins will spend eternity in hell. Romans 6:23; Titus 3:5; John 14:6, 1:12; Galatians 3:26; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 5:1
ETERNAL SECURITY: God gives us eternal life through Jesus Christ. If you have made a genuine commitment of faith in Jesus, you cannot lose your salvation. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the self-effort of the Christian. God’s grace and power enable us to persevere in faith until the end. John 10:29; Ephesians 2:1-10; 1 Peter 1:3-5; Hebrews 7:25, 10:10, 14; 2 Timothy 1:12
ETERNITY: People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence. John 3:16; Romans 6:23; Revelation 20:15
Wisdom Ministry with Dr. Nasir Siddiki
By age 34, Nasir Siddiki, a successful businessman, had made
his first million, but money meant nothing to him on his deathbed. Diagnosed with the
worst case of shingles ever admitted to Toronto General Hospital, his immune system
shut down and doctors left him to die. Born into a Muslim family, Nasir had pinned all
his hopes on modern medicine. When doctors could not help him, Nasir whispered,
"God, if you're real, don't let me die!"
In the darkest hour of the night, Jesus appeared beside Nasir's bed and said,"I Am
the God of the Christians. I Am the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob."
Those brief moments in Jesus' presence left Nasir Siddiki miraculously healed. From
that day to this one, Dr. Siddiki's passion has been to know and serve the Lord Jesus
Christ. An international teacher and evangelist, Dr. Siddiki holds crusades around the
world and has led thousands to the Lord in India, Asia, South America, Europe and
Africa. God has given him a mandate to proclaim the Gospel from nation to nation
while setting the captives free. He and his wife, Anita, host a television program on
TBN, Winning with Wisdom, which is broadcast to 15,000 stations via satellite reaching
millions of people, including those in the Middle East.
The founder of Wisdom Ministries, Dr. Siddiki teaches biblical wisdom principles for
success at the Wisdom Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He has taught at the American
Bible College and Seminary, where he developed the curriculum for Biblical Economics
and received an honorary doctorate degree. He has been featured in Charisma, Word
of Faith and Believer's Voice of Victory magazines. He has ministered on a variety of
different television programs including TBN, Daystar, LeSea, Inspiration Networks and
Dr. Siddiki lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with his wife and two sons. For more information,

.....In our current broadcast, follow Allee and Darius as they live boldly and share their faith with friends and family. See the Dare to Be a Daniel program in action and learn how today’s youth are being inspired and equipped to effectively share Jesus Christ.....
Near the end of his life the Apostle Paul exhorted Timothy to "Preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage – with great patience and careful instruction" (II Tim. 4:2). Billy Graham accepted this same charge in the summer of 1938. The world has not been the same since.
Dr. Graham has preached before 80 million people worldwide and has seen 3 million people commit their lives to Christ at his crusades. Moreover, through his work with The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Dr. Graham helped organize the 1966 World Conference on Evangelism in Berlin and the 1974 International Congress on World Evangelization in Lausanne. Through these events, as well as his more recent work with itinerant evangelists throughout the world, Dr. Graham has sought to ensure that the gospel is heard by people from every tribe, tongue and nation.
Although a brief biography such as this one cannot scratch the surface of Dr. Graham’s influence, we think that you will agree that Dr. Graham is "a prophet with honor." We hope that you find these resources by Dr. Graham and his family helpful.

This event received international attention, and increased the visibility of the telecast in Canada.
Boonstra's recent satellite events have included Out of Thin Air, The Presence and The Appearing, three short series focusing on the creation/evolution debate, the Sanctuary and the Second Coming, respectively. In addition, he conducted a month-long satellite event from Phoenix in early 2006. More than 1,000 churches hosted this event.
In the last few years, Boonstra has held major series in Portland, Los Angeles, and even the heart of Rome! Keep checking this website for information about his 2010 and 2011 events.
In the last few years, Boonstra has written more than 15 books. His clear grasp of Scripture and his warm, dynamic presentation style have been an inspiration to many. He, his wife Jean, and their two daughters live in Southern California.

Ever Increasing Faith Ministries
Frederick K. C. Price, D.D.
Pastor and Founder of Crenshaw Christian Center
Greetings in the matchless name of Jesus Christ. Thank you for joining me and Ever Increasing Faith Ministries on the World-Wide Web. It is exciting to be able to minister to you through this vast information network. My hope is that our Website will be a valuable tool in bringing you ever closer to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Know that you do not need a Minister to pray for you to be certain God hears your prayer. James 5:16 says the fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. A righteous man is anyone who has received Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Savior. If you have not yet accepted Jesus, then Romans 10:9-10 is the first step you need to take to be assured God hears your prayers. Romans 10:9-10 says that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
I urge you to fight the good fight of faith by developing your personal relationship with the Lord through spending time in prayer, praise and worship, and the reading of His Word on a consistent basis. God longs to fellowship with you. And like a good father, He wants you to come directly to Him with all your needs. This is why He tells us to go boldly to His throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16).
If you have a challenge believing God hears and desires to answer your prayers, I recommend you study what the Scriptures say about righteousness, as well as read the accompanying article. This will help you see what it really means to have a personal relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ. This understanding will empower you to act and stand on God's Word. Having others pray for you is fine and certainly biblical, but it is much more rewarding to obtain God's blessings on your own. I cannot begin to express how fulfilling and liberating it is to be dependent solely upon the Lord.
It is truly an honor and privilege to contribute to your spiritual growth in the Lord. Know that I am in agreement for all your needs being met that are consistent with a godly lifestyle, but my desire is that you learn how to Walk by faith and not by sight!
In the service of the King,
Frederick K.C. Price, D.D.
If you have a special need, I want to take this opportunity to encourage you to fight the good fight of faith. God's Word is true and will work for you. Acts 10:34 says God shows no partiality; He simply honors His Word. Since God's Word works for me, I know it can work for you!
Dr. Frederick K. C. Price was born January 3, 1932, in Santa Monica, California, the eldest of two sons of Winifred and Fred Price. He has one sister, Delores W. Jones.
A product of the Los Angeles public school system, Price attended McKinley Elementary School in Santa Monica, Foshay Junior High, Manual Arts and Dorsey High Schools in Los Angeles, and received his AA Degree from Los Angeles City College.
Dr. Price received an honorary diploma from the Rhema Bible Training Center in 1976 and an honorary Doctorate of Divinity Degree from Oral Roberts University in 1982; both institutions are based in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
On September 6, 2000 , Dr. Price was the first Black pastor to speak at "Town Hall Los Angeles ". In 1998, he received the prestigious "The Horatio Alger Award", presented by an Alexandria, Virginia-based association honoring those who exemplify inspirational success.
Dr. Price also received that year, "The Kelly Miller Smith Interfaith Award", presented by the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, honoring clergy who have made the most significant contribution through religious expression affecting the nation and world.
Dr. Price met the former Betty Ruth Scott while attending Dorsey High School . They were married in March 1953 and have four children - Angela Marie Evans, Cheryl Ann Price, Stephanie Pauline Buchanan, and Pastor Frederick Kenneth Price, Jr.
All of the Price children and their spouses (A. Michael Evans, Jr. and Danon Buchanan, Angel Price) work in the Ministry along with Dr. Price. Drs. Fred and Betty Price have five grandchildren: Alan Michael and Adrian Marie Evans; Nicole Denise and Allen L. Crabbe, III; and Tyler Stephen Buchanan.
The marriage of Fred and Betty Price has spans more than 50 years. The fact that all but one of those years was spent in the ministry is a story within itself.
Dr. Price was not always a religious man. He was not reared in the church. In fact, his parents were Jehovah's Witnesses who discontinued practicing their faith when Dr. Price was very young. On the other hand, Dr. Betty was a devout Baptist, whose only desire was to please God.
In order to win her hand in marriage and to impress her family, Dr. Price became a regular churchgoer during their courtship. Once they were married, however, he spent Sundays at the baseball diamond. Betty, "knew better," as she puts it, and remained steadfast in her faith, attending church every Sunday.
Within months after they married, a group of Los Angeles area churches sponsored a week of old-fashioned tent revivals. Dr. Price became jealous when he noticed that Betty went to each service.
To find out why she went, he decided to go himself.
At that service, Frederick K. C. Price was born-again. Soon thereafter, he and Betty joined a local Baptist congregation. In that church, Dr. Price says he received the "call" to minister. He explains, "I heard an audible voice saying, 'You are going to preach my Gospel.' It was like a bomb going off. I believe it was the voice of Jesus Christ, but at that time, I did not know what it was."
During the next 17 years, Dr. Price became increasingly dissatisfied with his progress, both personally as a Christian and in learning about the things of God in general. He joined four different denominations, but he only pastored in three of them. He was an assistant pastor in the Baptist church from 1955 to 1957, then pastored an AME (African Methodist Episcopal) church in Val Verde, CA from 1957 to 1959. He went from there to the Presbyterian Church, then to the Christian and Missionary Alliance in 1965.
During these years of dissatisfaction, Dr. Price searched the Scriptures for the answer. In his earnest desire to be all that God's Word said he should be, he discovered that the power of the Holy Spirit was missing from his life. In his book, "The Holy Spirit -- The Missing Ingredient", Dr. Price writes of this time. Dr. Price says, "Every time I read the words of Jesus in John 14:12, '. . .the works that I do will he do also; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to My Father,' it left me longing to experience these works.
I was not witnessing these 'greater works' in my own ministry, nor in the ministry of others that I knew, with two exceptions --Kathryn Kuhlman and Oral Roberts."
To add to his mounting frustration, in 1962, Dr. Price's eight-year-old son, Frederick III, was struck and killed by a car while he was coming home from school. This was the most disastrous of many crises in the Price family.
In her book, "Standing By God's Man," Dr. Betty Price remembers, "Fred and I tried to console each other as best we could, and leaned a lot on one another during this time of hurt. My husband particularly found it hard to get over this tragedy, but he knew -- and continued to say -- that it was not God Who had taken our son from us. Looking back now, we can see how the devil was trying to destroy us as a family."
While Dr. Price was pastoring for the Christian and Missionary Alliance at West Washington Community Church, he read Kathryn Kuhlman's book, "God Can Do It Again." "It stirred my soul," he says. "This was the missing dimension -- the demonstration of the power of the Spirit of God," or what the Bible terms "the gifts of the Spirit."
On February 28, 1970 , he received the gift of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of "speaking with other tongues" -- also known as "glossolalia." That is the event that Dr. Price considers the jumping-off point in his ministry.
Dr. Price was also influenced by several books and tapes by Rev. Kenneth E. Hagin of Tulsa, Oklahoma . Dr. Price adds, "It was during this time that Betty and I began to take the first steps to walk by faith, which has brought us to where we are today." In 1973 Dr. Price and 300 parishioners moved from West Washington to establish Crenshaw Christian Center (CCC) in Inglewood , CA . In 1984 CCC outgrew its Inglewood facility and purchased the former Pepperdine University Los Angeles campus.
CCC is now the home of the FaithDome, with over 10,000 seats, it's one of the largest church sanctuaries in the United States . Construction on the FaithDome began in 1986, finished in 1989, and the Dome was dedicated on January 21, 1990 .
Currently, the church membership totals over 22,000.
In addition, in 1990, Dr. Price founded the Fellowship of Inner City Word of Faith Ministries (FICWFM). Members of FICWFM include churches from all over the United States and various countries.
The Fellowship, which meets regionally throughout the year and hosts an annual convention, is not a denomination. Their mission is to provide fellowship, leadership, guidance and a spiritual covering for those desiring a standard of excellence in ministry. They share methods and experiences commonly faced by ministries in the inner cities. Their focus is how to apply the 'Word of Faith' to solve their challenges.
Dr. Price's most recent endeavors are the establishment of an East Coast church in Manhattan, New York and a Spanish church on the Ministry grounds in Los Angeles . The New York church - Crenshaw Christian Center East - opened May 21, 2001 and, as of 2003, a CCC Pastor on staff for 15 years in Los Angeles relocated to New York to become the Pastor, teaching on Thursday nights and Sunday mornings.
The current membership is almost 1,000. Now, Dr. Price only travels to New York approximately every (2) two month to teach the weekly Bible Study and Sunday service. The Spanish church holds Sunday morning services concurrently with the English service. The Spanish church is 2 years old and attendance averages approximately 150 each Sunday.
Crenshaw Christian Center has an established preschool, elementary, middle, and high school and correspondence school. People all over the world know of Dr. Price through the "Ever Increasing Faith" TV, radio and tape ministry. The Ever Increasing Faith Ministries program reaches more than 15 million households each week and airs in 15 of the 20 largest markets throughout the United States , according to recent Nielson ratings.
Dr. Price is the author of some 50 books on faith, healing, prosperity, and the Holy Spirit. "How Faith Works" is a classic book on the operation of faith and its life-changing principles. He has sold over 2.1 million books since 1976.
His most recent book projects include, "Race, Religion & Racism, Volume 1 : A Bold Encounter with Racism in The Church," "Race, Religion & Racism, Volume 2 : Perverting the Gospel to Subjugate a People" and "Race, Religion & Racism: Volume 3 : Jesus, Christianity and Islam."

Joseph Prince Ministry
With almost two decades of full-time ministry behind him, Joseph Prince has become the leading voice for a new generation of believers — a generation that builds its hope on the abundance of God’s grace and the gift of His righteousness.
A founding member and pioneer leader of New Creation Church, Joseph Prince initially served as an elder and associate pastor. However, his appointment as senior pastor marked a turning point in the history of the church, which started experiencing growth at an accelerated rate never before seen in its history. Under Joseph’s leadership, the church congregation has grown by more than a hundredfold — from about 150 to more than 17,000!
Joseph’s humorous, personal and practical style of preaching complements the fact that he is an anointed teacher of the Word of God. His dynamic messages have always been centred on the pure gospel of the grace of God based on the finished work of Jesus Christ.
He moves in a strong worship anointing, ministering healing and prophetic words by the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Over the years, Joseph’s ministry as pastor, teacher and conference speaker has helped to set many people free from guilt and condemnation, and caused them to fall in love with Jesus afresh as they see His love, goodness and grace. Having built and established the leadership and congregation of New Creation Church on the finished work of Jesus Christ, Joseph is now
actively fulfilling the mandate that God has given him to "Bring My Son Back to the Church".
He separately leads an international ministry called Joseph Prince Ministries, Inc., a non-profit organisation that focuses on unveiling the person of Jesus and liberating people with the new covenant realities based entirely on the cross at Calvary.
A highly sought-after international conferencespeaker, Joseph has also impacted many church leaders and ministry servers around the world. His sermons are now broadcast weekly to
millions of households across America, Canada, Australia, Europe, the Middle East and South Africa.
Having experienced the amazing grace of God in his own life, Joseph believes the best of people and in what God can do for them, in them and through them, by His grace. His desire is to help this generation of Christians realise how greatly blessed, highly favoured and deeply loved they are by their Father in heaven, so that they may be blessed to be a blessing.
We believe in one God, who exists in three Persons — the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is loving, holy and just.
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is inspired and accurate. It is our perfect guide in all matters of life.
We believe that sin has separated us all from God, and that only through Jesus Christ can we be reconciled to God.
We believe that Jesus Christ is both God and Man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, took all our sins upon Himself, died and rose again. Today, He is seated at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Mediator.
We believe that salvation is the gift of God to man. This gift is effected by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and it produces works pleasing to God.
We believe that water baptism is a symbol of the cleansing power of God and a testimony of our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is our Comforter. He guides us in all areas of our lives. He also blesses us with spiritual gifts and empowers us to yield the fruit of the Spirit.
We believe that the Holy Communion is a celebration of Jesus’ death and our remembrance of Him.
We believe that God wants to transform, heal and prosper us, so that we can live blessed and victorious lives that will impact and help others.
We believe that we are called to preach the gospel to all nations.
We believe that our Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again just as He promised.
At New Creation Church, we believe that we are the beloved of God. He demonstrated this by freely giving up heaven’s best, His only Son Jesus Christ, for us all. When we rest in this truth,
God fills us with His love till it overflows from our hearts and touches the lives of those around us.
That is the beauty of living in the cycle of God’s love. And my desire is that you will experience His amazing love and grace in your own life.
So it doesn’t matter if you are young or old, single or married. There is always a place for you in the New Creation Church family. We are here to love you and serve you, and point you to
the love and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
I pray that you will discover how greatly blessed, highly favoured and deeply loved you are by our Father in heaven. May the Lord bless you and your loved ones as you put your trust in His unfailing love.
Grace and Peace

Gospel to the heart of millions.
For over 26 years, Carman has entertained, encouraged and preached the Gospel to

Faith Acts Like a thing is so, even when it’s not so, that it might be so! Hebrews 11:1
Founder K.P. Yohannan
My Dear Friend,
In our busy lives, it is easy to be so preoccupied with our own dreams and pursuits that we lose our eternal perspective. Both the joys of heaven and the crying needs of a lost world can seem unreal and far away.
But the harsh reality is that 2.7 billion people of our generation are still unreached with the Gospel. What answers are we prepared to give to the living God when He asks about the blood of these multitudes on our hands?
Today, we have the great privilege of helping them come to know Jesus. If we will commit to live for what is eternal, this generation can be reached with the Gospel.
I pray that Gospel for Asia will become like a bridge, giving you the opportunity to walk away from your own preoccupations to the harvest fields of Asia—and see the perishing multitudes through the eyes of Jesus.
May you allow God to use your life to change the destiny of millions through your prayers and partnership with our native brothers and sisters.
A hundred years from now, you will be glad you did!
Sharing the Gospel
The primary aim of Gospel for Asia's ministry is to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with those who have never before heard His name.
Sending Native Missionaries
Gospel for Asia trains and sends native missionaries because they have proven extremely effective. They are already familiar with the language and culture, and they live at the level of the people they serve, thus removing many social barriers.
100 Percent Goes to the Field
Gospel for Asia sends 100 percent of the money you donate for work on the mission field to the field. Nothing is taken out for administrative expenses.
Yours for the lost multitudes of Asia,
Dr. K.P. Yohannan
Founder & President of Gospel for Asia

1. You Must First Sow A Seed--There Will Never Be A Time In Your Life When You Have Nothing To Sow. You are a walking warehouse of Seed.
"Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness"
(2 Corinthians 9:10).
2. You Must Sow In Quality Soil--The Quality of the Soil Determines the Future of the Seed. The happiest day in the life of a Seed is when it finds that Soil.
"But other fell into good ground and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold"
3. You Must Sow Proportionately With Expectation--Quantity Matters. Your level of Expectation determines your level of Seed-sowing. Expectation is a magnet that attracts God!
"But I say unto you, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall also reap bountifully" (2 Corinthians 9:6).
4. You Must Sow In Faith Through Obedience--Your Obedience Is The ONLY Proof of Your Faith!
"But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him"
5. You Must Sow In The Right Season--WHEN You Sow Is As Important As What You Sow.
Be not deceived; God is not micked; for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he reap. (Galatians 6:7)
6. You Must Look To The Lord Of The Harvest--God Is Your Source of Supply! Dr. Oral Roberts said to me, "Most are laboring over the Seed when they should be laboring for the harvest."
"Therefore said he unto them, The harvest is truly great, but the laborers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth laborers into his harvest"
7. You Must Wait Patiently For Harvest Time--Waiting Is The Proof You Believe God!"
"And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not."
May God richly bless you and your family.
Dr. Todd Coontz
Morris Cerullo Ministry
"Blood-bought people of Revelation referenced as the 'wine'; and
the Last Great Wealth Transfer, represented by the Black Horse
symbolizing, Famine, in this case since Jesus taught in parables, means a famine of the Word, spiritually, and a literal famine of the people of the earth except those bought by the blood (the Wine) of Jesus Christ. As history is repeating itself just as Abraham walked off with all the wealth of the world when he left Egypt to go to the promised land, in this case the Rapture to the kingdom and then our following Christ on white horses when He returns to take over the world at the New Jerusalem (our new office for all the Saints).
But before this happens, a rapture of the evil ones will take place, where two are in the field and one is taken example, evil is to be removed from the earth first, then Christ will return.
Dr. Morris Cerullo, Apostle and Prophet of the Lord Jesus Christ, is a man on the move for God. He is a man whose entire life is dedicated to fulfilling the call of God to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every living creature.
In 1962, God gave him a specific call in Porte Alegro, Brazil when He said, "Son, build Me an army." This army is made up of Nationals trained to take the Gospel to their villages, cities, states, and nations with the same anointing that rests upon Dr. Cerullo's life and ministry. God has used Dr. Cerullo to pioneer overseas ministries and open many countries that have been considered closed to the Gospel. His ministry is accompanied by a manifestation of God's miracle power.
In his early years of ministry throughout Latin America, he faced tremendous opposition. He was arrested and detained many times for preaching the Gospel and praying for the sick. In 1965, when Dr. Cerullo first went to Argentina, the country was almost completely closed to the Gospel. Due to the fusion of church and state, every time there was an attempt to conduct an evangelistic campaign there was tremendous opposition, often resulting in persecution.
During a crusade in 1965 in Mar Del Plata, Argentina, there were so many miracles of healing the College of Doctors issued a complaint accusing Dr. Cerullo of practicing medicine without a license and ordered his arrest.Despite the fact a warrant was issued for his arrest, he continued to minister nightly under a heavy anointing with hundreds of people being saved and healed. The police met him at his hotel, arrested him and took him to jail. After intensive interrogation, he was released in time to conduct the last night of the crusade.
The impact of these early crusades spread across Argentina and was the turning point in evangelization, not only in Mar Del Plata and Rosario but also in the cities and villages throughout the entire nation. Many of the ministers that attended those crusades and were trained in the Schools of Ministry in Buenos Aires in 1969 and Rosario in 1972, had their lives changed as they saw, for the first time, a powerful demonstration of the supernatural power of God. Today many of them have large churches and ministries that are impacting their nations for Christ.
The same is true for Indonesia, Malaysia, Israel and the entire Middle East, the Far East, Africa,Mexico, Central and South America and virtually every nation on Earth.
The mission of Morris Cerullo World Evangelism follows:
.....Carry the saving and healing message of Jesus Christ to every nation and islands of the earth.
.....Proclaim the whole Gospel of Jesus Christ to every person on earth in our generation.
.....Build up, train, and strengthen believers in every nation.
Conduct Schools of Ministries for the purpose of passing the anointing God has given to Morris Cerullo to others for the purpose of reaching their villages, cities and nations for Christ.
.....Present the witness that Jesus is the Messiah to every Jew.
.....Maximize technology, people and resources God has provided for the spreading of the Gospel.
.....Build God a mighty, active army of trained believers in every nation for the purpose of overtaking darkness and spreading the light of the Gospel of Christ.
.....Establish a prayer covering over the entire earth with strategically located prayer centers and continual worldwide prayer for the nations.
.....Establish Prayer Command Centers in homes of believers who will be a light to help hurting individual in their communities and pray for the needs of the hurting masses of the world.
.....Recognize and support unity in the Body of Christ, so that the world will know we are His disciples.
.....Operate, articulate and demonstrate to the world, the five-fold ministries of the Church as outlined in Ephesians 4:11 for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.
In all we do and say and in every action of the ministry of Morris Cerrullo World Evangelism we want to bring honor and glory to God.

Our Doctrinal Statement
We affirm our belief in one God, infinite Spirit, creator, and sustainer of all things, who exists eternally in three persons, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. These three are one in essence but distinct in person and function.
We affirm that the Father is the first person of the Trinity and the source of all that God is and does. From Him the Son is eternally generated and from Them the Spirit eternally proceeds. He is the designer of creation, the speaker of revelation, the author of redemption, and the sovereign of history.
We affirm that the Lord Jesus Christ is the second person of the Trinity. Eternally begotten from the Father, He is God. He was conceived by the virgin Mary through a miracle of the Holy Spirit. He lives forever as perfect God and perfect man: two distinct natures inseparably united in one person.
We affirm that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, proceeding from the Father and Son and equal in deity. He is the giver of all life, active in the creating and ordering of the universe: He is the agent of inspiration and the new birth; He restrains sin and Satan; and He indwells and sanctifies all believers.
We affirm that all things were created by God. Angels were created as ministering agents, though some, under the leadership of Satan, fell from their sinless state to become agents of evil. The universe was created in six historical days and is continuously sustained by God; thus it both reflects His glory and reveals His truth. Human beings were directly created, not evolved, in the very image of God. As reasoning moral agents, they are responsible under God for understanding and governing themselves and the world.
We affirm that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, though written by men, was supernaturally inspired by God so that all its words are the written true revelation of God, it is therefore inerrant in the originals and authoritative in all matters. It is to be understood by all through the illumination of the Holy Spirit, its meaning determined by the historical, grammatical, and literary use of the author's language, comparing Scripture with Scripture.
We affirm that Adam, the first man, willfully disobeyed God, bringing sin and death into the world. As a result, all persons are sinners from conception, which is evidenced in their willful acts of sin; and they are therefore subject to eternal punishment, under the just condemnation of a holy God.
We affirm that Jesus Christ offered Himself as a sacrifice by the appointment of the Father. He fulfilled the demands of God by His obedient life, died on the cross in full substitution and payment for the sins of all, was buried, and on the third day He arose physically and bodily from the dead. He ascended into heaven where He now intercedes for all believers.
We affirm that each person can be saved only through the work of Jesus Christ, through repentance of sin and by faith alone in Him as Savior. The believer is declared righteous, born again by the Holy Spirit, turned from sin, and assured of heaven.
We affirm that the Holy Spirit indwells all who are born again, conforming them to the likeness of Jesus Christ. This is a process completed only in Heaven. Every believer is responsible to live in obedience to the Word of God in separation from sin.
We affirm that a church is a local assembly of baptized believers, under the discipline of the Word of God and the lordship of Christ, organized to carry out the commission to evangelize, to teach, and to administer the ordinances of believer's baptism and the Lord's table. Its offices are pastors and deacons, and it is self-governing. It functions through the ministry of gifts given by the Holy Spirit to each believer
We affirm that the return of Christ for all believers is imminent. It will be followed by seven years of great tribulation, and then the coming of Christ to establish His earthly kingdom for a thousand years. The unsaved will then be raised and judged according to their works and separated forever from God in hell. The saved, having been raised, will live forever in heaven in fellowship with God.

Today, God has blessed them with a flock of more than 14,000 members, and numerous spiritual sons in the ministry.

Adrian Rogers Ministry
Love Worth Finding's purpose is to bring people to Christ and mature them in the faith. This happens primarily through efforts in publishing and broadcasting biblical truth. Read more about our mission and about what we believe.
Love Worth Finding began in 1987, as a response to several requests for tapes of messages by pastor and Bible teacher Adrian Rogers. He relates that "soon the requests began to grow to the point that we knew God was leading us into a wider ministry." As an extension of Dr. Rogers' pulpit ministry, Love Worth Finding provided that role and continues today.
Dr. Rogers stated, "I believe God wants us to proclaim the message of salvation in the power of the Holy Spirit by every means possible ... That's our commitment at Love Worth Finding." In response to many who are asking, has that purpose changed since the home-going of Dr. Rogers? No, God wants us to continue to proclaim the message of salvation. The messenger may be gone, but the message must continue. Millions still have not heard the precious name of Jesus or know His redeeming grace.
So our race is not over. We must still run -- until Jesus comes. If you believe in what God has called LWF to do, we invite you to help us proclaim God's truth. Our prayer is that you will join with us in running the race and in broadcasting the Good News that Jesus Christ is truly the greatest Love worth finding.
Known for his evangelistic zeal and uncompromising commitment to the Word of God, Adrian Rogers was one of the greatest preachers, respected Bible teachers, and Christian leaders of our time. For over fifty years, he consistently presented the Good News of Jesus Christ with strong conviction, compassion, and integrity.
He was a devoted family man — husband to his childhood sweetheart Joyce, father to four children, grandfather to nine, and great-grandfather to one. Of all his accomplishments, Dr. Rogers often said his greatest joy centered in his relationship to Jesus Christ, his wife and family, and the church he pastored.
The recipient of many honors and awards, the trophy he treasured most was one presented to him by his children one Father’s Day in which he was proclaimed The World’s Greatest Dad.
Under his pastoral leadership, Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee, grew from 9,000 members in 1972 to more than 29,000 at his retirement in 2005.
And Adrian Rogers was a leader in his denomination, serving three terms as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, which is the world's largest Protestant denomination of 16 million members.
God’s blessing on Dr. Rogers’ ministry became even more evident with the birth of Love Worth Finding Ministries in 1987. Dr. Rogers was the founder and Bible teacher of Love Worth Finding, an internationally syndicated television and radio ministry. The sun never sets on this ministry which is broadcast on radio, television, and the Internet.
You can find LWF declaring the Gospel and changing lives in more than 150 countries around the world. In 2003, Dr. Rogers was honored to be inducted into the prestigious Hall of Fame by the National Religious Broadcasters.
Dr. Rogers was active in national leadership and personally consulted and prayed with five presidents of the United States. He visited and had the privilege of sharing the platform with President George W. Bush in the White House on the National Day of Prayer for America.
Dr. Rogers preached overseas crusades in Taiwan, South Korea, Israel, Russia, Romania, and in Central and South America.
In November 2005, God called Adrian Rogers home. Since that time, tributes have poured in testifying of his worldwide impact. For more information, visit

Pursuing, Proclaiming and Publishing The Wisdom of God.
“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding,” Proverbs 4:7
“Go ye therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them all things I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19, 20
As a dynamic Church and Outreach Center, proclaiming the Word of God, we purpose to make disciples of Christ by:
Our 7-Point Plan To Fulfill The Command of Christ
1. Focusing On The Persuasion of Divine Existence And Authority.
(Ps 95:6,7; Rev. 4:8-11)
2. Teaching The Wisdom of God (the Bible)-(The priority in our life).
(Deut. 4:6; Psalms 119)
3. Encouraging Christians towards spiritual maturity
(Romans 12:1,2; 14:19; Heb. 6:1-3)
4. Training and Equipping Christians for a ministry to others.
(Matt 9:35-38; Eph. 4:11-16)
5. Evangelizing the world for Christ.
(Matt 28:18-20; Acts 1:8)
6. Unleash Faith For Miracles of Healing And Restoration.
7. Sow Seeds of Wisdom For Uncommon Achievement And Completion of A Believer's Divine Assignment.
(Proverbs 4:7; Romans 10:14,15)
1. We believe in one God, revealed as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
2. We believe in the absolute inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, given by the Holy Spirit without error, as He moved upon holy men of old. Furthermore, we believe that the church has no authority to establish doctrine or practice contrary to these same Scriptures.
3. We believe that man was made in the image of God and is the crown of creation. He is, prior to salvation, because of the fall, spiritually depraved and alienated from his Creator.
4. We believe that justification is by grace through faith in our Lord’s sacrifice on Calvary, and that no one is justified by simply keeping the law.
5. We believe in water baptism, following conversion as commanded by Christ as a symbolic sign that the people of God are buried and resurrected with Christ.
6. We believe in the priesthood of the believer, that all people committed to Christ have direct access in prayer to God.
7. We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit is an endowment of power subsequent to conversion, given by God to anoint the believer for sanctification and evangelism. It is our understanding that the supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit are active within the body until the coming of the Lord. Furthermore, we believe that the development of these gifts ought to be encouraged under the guidance of local church authorities.
8. We believe that divine healing and divine health are provided to every believer through the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9. We believe that the callings of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher are functional within the Body of Christ until the Lord’s return. Furthermore, these ministries are gifts to the Church for the purpose of equipping the saints for the work of ministry, that the body of Christ be edified.
10. We believe in the literal second coming of our Lord, the literal rule of Christ upon the earth, the resurrection of the regenerated to eternal life and the unregenerated to eternal damnation, and the ultimate victory of the eternal kingdom of God.
