Love you all,
From the BishopStanding On the Shoulders of Giants
Here we are again, justa
little over a month awayfrom our General Con-vention in Tullahoma.
We are
looking forward toa great time this year.
We are going to haveseveral ministers in at-tendance who have never been in our Convention inprevious years.
 Alsosome who have not beenin a long time.
It will begood to see everyoneagain.
I wish to remindall the members of theExecutive Board, pleasemake plans to attend.
The organization is de-pending on you.
I thinkthe crowning achieve-ment of our conventionwould be to see new peo-ple receive the gift of theHoly Ghost.
I believe weare living in a time whenpeople are more interest-ed in
promoting them-selves than in the promo-tion of the plan of salva-tion.
We must surrender our authority to a higher power that we cannotcontrol.
It is high time for us to get out of God'sway and let Him havecomplete control of our lives and our churchesand most of all this or-ganization.
We makeplans to do this or thatand leave God out of thepicture.
The sooner werealize that God is incharge and we are
Hisservants, the sooner we

dence which has great reward. After you have endured and after you have done the will of God you may receive the promise youare standing in faith for. Do notbe defeated by weariness. Do notlose faith and get distracted by circumstances. Above all, do notfall into sin. Keep His Word infront of your eyes and in your earsuntil you can see it coming topass with the eyes of your spiritBe Blessed.

If you dare to believe God’s
 Word, there is no situation thatGod can not turn around. The
doctors may have told you there’s
no hope, your bank account may be empty and the creditors knock-ing on the door. There may betrouble in your family or on yourjob. Your problems may bestacked so high you feel you can
never overcome them. But don’t
let the devil fool you. Nothinghinders God when you have faith
in His Word. What’s more, faithbelieves god’s Word because God
said it
 whether circumstancesseem to agree or not. Keep put-ting the word into your heart day after day until faith rises up with-in you. Faith comes by hearing,and hearing by the Word of God(Ro 10:17). In Hebrews chapters10 and 11, we learn about what Jesus said regarding how we liveby faith. However, warnings inHeb. 10:26 says that after wereceive the knowledge of thetruth, if we willfully return to oursin, there no longer remains asacrifice for sins but, the expecta-tion of certain judgment. Jesus warns sternly about insulting theSpirit of Grace. But in verse 35.He says not to cast away our confi-

 The FCJC is seeking minis-ters and aspiring ministers.Churches are autonomousand ministers are self-supporting. We are a pio-neering effort seeking toexpand into all States and we need your help in re-cruiting others to the causeof Christ. We believe andpractice Acts 2:38, 2:4; Jn3:5; Dt. 6:4 Hundreds of thousands await the soundof True Gospel Preachers,bringing the message of True Biblical Salvation.This rich and beautifulharvest field is ready for thehands of the reapers. Reviv-al lies within the bosom of men of God such as your-
and millions need to betrained. We want to see people savedand thankful. And at the endof the day, we want them topraise our glorious Lord. Thisis why we do what we do.Thank you for your efforts.Tell others about this work,and support it with your tithesand offerings. We need yourhelp. God Bless You All!I came across II Corinthians4:15 recently. Paul had beentalking about the conflictsbetween the false teachers andhis own work, and he writes:
“For all things are for your
sakes, that the abundance of grace might through thethanksgiving of many redound
to the glory of God”
 My first thought was, what a wonderful theme verse for theFirst Church of Jesus Christ.None of us are doing this forour own benefit. We do it sothe message of the Oneness of God, His true identity andHis glorious grace will reachmore and more people. We want FCJC to grow, not be-cause we want to run a largeministry, but because billionsof people have not yet heard,
lutely essential to salvation JesusChrist is God! God is NOT a trini-ty!
Pastors, I am especially interested in whatis happening in your churches andministries. Please let me hear from youat:Larry L Yates1819 S 8th StreetIronton, OH 45638740-237-4548
larrylyates@hotmail.comThe Word of God is our ultimaterule of faith and action. It is ourfinal authority. Our experiencemust be judged by Scripture notScripture judged by experience. The Word of God is forever settled inHeaven. We must settle it on earthand in our hearts. Notice Psalm119:89 says the Word is FOREVER settled. It will never change. What itsays now it will say 100 years fromnow, You are not going to get Godto change His mind to agree with you. You must change your mind toagree with Him. This means thatGod has set His Word as a rule anda boundary beyond which no Chris-tian should go. If it is not in theBible, you should not do it. If it ISin the Bible that is exactly what youshould both do and teach. TrueBiblical Christianity is Apostolic,Pentecostal, and Oneness.
