"God called Susan and I to plant a new church in
Patterson, California in the fall of 2011. There has never been a second thought as to God’s calling us to do this. We continue to seek the help of our God to grow His Kingdom in Patterson and help missions around the world do the same.
What drives me in ministry is seeing the life-changing power of Jesus transform people and relationships. People seem to find Jesus around me, praise the Lord. Once born-again, the Bible and the Holy Spirit begin working in them as they learn to surrender to Jesus even more. This all leads to spiritual transformation"
Graduate of William Jessup; wannabe beach-bum; huge fan of the way GOD's story connects to OUR story.
The Christian Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, is the only inspired word of God and is infallible, thus our only source of authority and doctrine (II Peter 1:20-21; II Timothy 3:16).
Jesus of Nazareth is the Christ, the very Son of God who came in the flesh, was crucified, buried & bodily raised from the dead by His own power (I Corinthians 15:3-5; John 14:1-6)
By virtue of His death on the cross, Jesus made it possible for all of humanity to be forgiven of their sin and gain eternal life (Romans 5:5-8; I Corinthians 6:9-11; Hebrews 9:15).
Jesus wants all of humanity to become His disciple (FOLLOWER) as stated in the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20) and it is the church’s duty to make and grow FOLLOWERS of Jesus.
As FOLLOWERS of Jesus, we are to bring glory to God the Father by loving
Him and loving our neighbor (Matthew 22:37-40) as demonstrated through our daily lives
We anticipate the return of Jesus (I Thessalonians 4:13-18) who will take all His FOLLOWERS to their eternal reward and fairly judge all others who will be sent to the lake of fire (Revelation 20:11-15)
We are to strive to plant new churches to give even more people the
opportunity to hear the Good News (Acts 1:8)
