"...and he who wins souls is wise." Proverbs 11:30 NIV
Our vision can be summed up in one word...EVANGELISM
Evangelism has been our driving force for almost 50 years now...preaching the simple, transforming salvation message of Jesus Christ. Our vision is to depopulate hell and populate heaven!
The Great Commission -- soulwinning -- must once again become the first priority in the church. As wonderful as the gift of healing...a personal word...praise and worship etc.is, we must not forget that the true purpose of the church is to reach the lost.
We must remember the power of the Holy Spirit as described in Acts 1:8 is to give us the boldness and power to be His witness around the world. The Holy Spirit was never meant to be a theme park for Christians...it was meant to deplete hell!
Unfortunately, evangelism has taken a back seat in many churches today. Sad to say, that a true soulwinner is often looked upon as abnormal instead of being the norm in the modern church.
Soulwinning is so vital that Jesus declared its importance five different times to His disciples...Matt. 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-18; Luke 24:44-49; John 20:21; Acts 1:8
At this very moment, we are waging a tough war for the very moral foundation of our nation!
There is a general consensus that America is in trouble! Our nation was founded upon the freedom of religion and the moral spiritual principles of the Bible. But today, there is a growing attack to take away our Judeo-Christian beliefs...no more Ten Commandments...no more public displays of anything religious...no more public prayers at our high school graduations...no more "In God We Trust" on our money...no more nativity scenes...no more 'Merry Christmas' - it's Happy Holiday...and no more 'under God' in our Pledge of Allegiance!
Alan Keyes made this thought-provoking observation regarding our cracked moral and spiritual foundation...
"Our rights to revere God have been stolen from us, the American people. Those who steal our rights to the Sovereignty of God in our lives have total power over us."
It is a wake up call for our nation before it is too late! America needs evangelism like never before. Billy Graham once said...
"It's either back to the Bible or back to the jungle. The jungle truly is creeping up on the United States."
Our nation's woes are not a White House issue
...it's a 'WHITE HEART' issue!
What's needed is not more good advice, but the Good News, "the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes" (Romans 1:16).
Leonard Ravenhill asked a very thought provocking question..."Is the life you're living worth Christ dying for?" Gloria and I doing everything we can to make our live count for God. We're excited about the vision God has burned in our hearts...to reach more people for Christ...strengthen and restore marriages...build strong families.
With God's strength and the support of our committed partners, Gloria and I will continue devoting our lives to proclaiming the good news of John 3:16 across this great nation...this is truly the only hope for America!
"Some want to live within the sound of church
or chapel bell; I want to run a rescue shop
within a yard of hell."
Pioneer evangelist C. T. Studd
