The main purpose of this ministry is to help fulfill the Great Commission of winning souls for Jesus Christ as stated in Gods Word: "Go ye into all the world,and preach the gospel to all creation." (Mark 16:15) I felt that the Lord Jesus Christ, through His Holy Spirit, gave me the desire to win souls through a variety of ministries; missionaries, tract distribution, street witnessing and through the Internet. Our volunteer staff are committed, God-fearing Christians who have the same desires as mentioned above. I want to thank them for their faithfulness and hard work in sharing the Gospel message of salvation through Jesus Christ. My desire is for those who are lost is to come to the knowledge that by accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior, they can be saved. For those who have ears to hear this message of life, my desire is to communicate that Jesus Christ obediently gave his life as a sacrifice to pay for the sins of the whole world. He volunteered to die a humiliating, painfuldeath by being nailed to and hung from a wooden cross until all life had passedfrom His body. This He did as a faithful response to the promise of His father (God) that He would be raised up (or raised from the dead) on the third day following His death by crucifixion. In turn, each of us is now offered the hope that through our Faith in this promise, we will someday be raised from the dead (and for those who are alive when He returns, caught away in the air to join them) by the very same power, victorious over death, and be led by Jesus Christ our Lord to live with Him forever in heaven.
In conclusion, what is my factual basis as I say these things? Please read with me the following quoted passage, penned by the Apostle Paul in his first letter to the early Corinthian church. In a modern Bible, we can read these words in First Corinthians, Chapter 15, Verses 49-57. "And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ." God bless you, Mark Howard
