Testimony and Call to Ministry
I surrendered my life to Jesus in baptism on July 20, 1997. This happened two years after God provided a way out of an abusive and alcoholic household as my older brother Greg, and his wife Tyka, were granted custody of our brother Daniel and myself. A year after accepting Jesus, I felt called to full-time ministry. I sensed that God wanted to use my passion for His word and my life experience to minister to others.
Statement of Faith
I believe in: God the Father, who sovereignly reigns over creation; Jesus the Son, whose death and resurrection have bought forgiveness of sins for those who accept this free gift by faith; the Holy Spirit who dwells within those who place their trust in Christ to provide comfort, conviction, remembrance of Scripture, and help the believer become more like Jesus. I believe that the Bible is God inspired, provides knowledge sufficient for life, faith, and salvation, and reveals God’s plan to bring salvation to mankind. The church is consisted of those who have placed their faith in Jesus where each member fulfills the role for which they are gifted by God and works together to fulfill the Great Commission.
