"I accepted Jesus Christ publicly as my Lord and Savior at the age of ten. God called me to full-time Christian ministry in 1979, at the age of 28. In the spring of 1987, I felt God's leadership in calling me to preach."
"Wanda and I were married on May 24, 1980. The Lord has blessed us with three precious children. Before they were born, we asked God to save them at an early age, and He did. We praise the Lord and consider ourselves blessed beyond measure that our family is complete in Christ." Our daughter-in-law, Megan, has been a wonderful addition to our family.
"I believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, infallible Word of God and that our choices, decisions, and actions should be approved and acceptable according to the teachings of the Bible. I believe that Jesus Christ died for all sinners, and one has a free will to accept or reject salvation, but for those who place their faith, belief, and trust in Jesus Christ that once saved, they are always saved. I believe that it is the responsibility of every Christian to seek to lead the unsaved to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, and that the process of evangelism is not truly complete until the evangelized becomes an evangelizer."
