I've preached in over 525 revivals or crusades over the past 41 years of ministry. It has been my joy to see many people come to the saving knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ through these years.
My burden is for preaching and teaching the gospel message in order for souls to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. I desire to strengthen Christians to grow in wisdom, knowledge and understanding of God's word. My effort in preaching also addresses the needs for families to be united around the bonding of Biblical truth. It is my belief that preaching should deliver spiritual truth with love, conviction and compassion through a Christ-centered message relevant to our daily lives. My convictions are deeply founded in the beliefs of the Baptist faith and doctrine. I believe in the:
Infallible Word of God
The virgin birth of Christ
Mankind’s payment for sin is by the blood of Christ
The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ
The Second Coming of Christ
"IF I DO IT NOT BUT TO HONOR GOD,
THEN LET ME DO IT NOT AT ALL."
