At our church we are ready to take on the world  with the Gospel of Jesus Christ and we have a passion for reaching out. Our outreach culture has always been one of taking over and conquering for Jesus. Our church possesses the heart of evangelism. We feel that if we stop reaching out we start to become a dead church. We also understand that you need an army to fulfill the task of winning people to the Lord. We are a good army of Love and we round up troops to go forth and conquer. These are 4 things to keep in mind as you and your group goes out to take over your city and neighborhoods: 1- Leave an impacting mark. A tattoo is an impression that stays on a person for a lifetime; even when surgery is performed for removal the skin has this look like something was there before. You see if we go anywhere in our community we should be impacting it. Why? Because of the Holy Spirit is why. I don't mean just being loud and make a seen. I mean give way to the Spirit of God as He leads you in this society. Impressions are not only left because of force they are also left because of Love. It is very rare for God to use force, He will use Love to conquer even the darkest of hearts. Matthew 5:13 (NLT) “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet. I have lived in snowy climates for many long years, I have seen winters that seemed as if they had no end. I remember the taste of the salt that was used to be trampled under foot. We used this type of rock salt on the sidewalks and streets so that people and cars would not slip in the ice left by snow. That salt tasted like chemicals and I remember that it was very bad for my stomach. You see that salt lost its taste, instead of it being used for food like a warm soup it is only good for the ground. Instead of bringing nourishment it is only good for those going and coming to have steady grip. I don't think any of us ever want to loose out on taste. If one does their is only one purpose and thats to see others GO! 2- Minister to the one as well as the multitude. Yes it's a big event, crusade, conference but remember even the ones that no one wants to talk to need you to listen and pray for them. My friend Mike a minister who has traveled the world sharing the good news once told me: that everywhere he went to speak whether if it was a big or small event the most unlikely people would want to just hang out with him. Soon after services a bunch of children, homeless, and loners would come and just want to be around him. I know its because He has the quality of leaving the big group to be with the ones no one enjoys time with. Read the following and see how Jesus spoke of leaving the big thing and group to pursue individuals and sit with them. Luke 15:1-7 (NLT) Then all the tax collectors and the sinners drew near to Him to hear Him. And the...

Love is Larger

We love listening to one of our favorite preachers Corrie Ten Boom and reading her quotes. There is one that always stuck out and that is "love is larger than the walls that shut it in." You see if you have been around long enough in the church world we tend to keep love shut in within the confines of a building. The presence of God for some is only experienced at an altar. The move of God can only come at a conference. The rest of the week we are busy with no time for God and certainly not the move of God in public places like a parking lot or a store. However, Gods love is larger than the walls we think it can be kept in. This is why we do events, outreach, and other things like it to show forth Gods love and power to this community. On July 28th thru the 30th FPG CHUCRH did just that. We set out as a team to put on an event that would rival that of any big festival in our area. Over 4,000 friends, family, children, and parents came out for the 3 day Jesus Loves The RGV, Back 2 School Party. Over 1000 back packs were handed out to children going back to school, and best of all the Gospel was presented and many received Jesus as their Lord and Savior knowing for possibly the first time that Jesus truly loves them. We spoke to the director of the event Pastor Tony Martinez he had this to say. "We have been commissioned as a church to pray for, fund, or coordinate 4 crusades this year. The Lord has blessed us with possibly 6 and who knows how much more we will do by the end of the year. This church and its members are on fire to see what Pastor Kevin has preached that all receive salvation, healing, and deliverance." The church of Acts had it right as their focus went to sharing this good news that Jesus saves, heals, and delivers. The church stayed together through worship and communion. "They worshiped together at the Temple each day, met in homes for the Lord's Supper, and shared their meals with great joy and generosity--" Acts 2:46 NLT. Through their unity in Gods presence and fellowship with each other they were also made generous. We are truly proud of what has been happening the whole year here at FPG CHURCH. To God be all the glory and praise. However the year is not over we are looking forward to our next two crusades; at the end of this month we have one more in Mexico and in the fall we have one in Argentina. Please pray for us and if the Lord leads give an offering to this great work of God. As a church we will continue to fulfill what God has called us to. To Save, Heal, and Deliver through the Name of Jesus. To give to our next crusades in Mexico and Argentina click this link.    God bless you.   FPG CHURCH...

He heals the brokenhearted and bandages their wounds.  To those of us who have a broken heart, there is a God that heals. To those of us who have been in pain that no man can see. Pain that no surgeon can open and heal. To those of us who have been hurt by others so bad that the pain has left us restless or shooked. So shooked we cannot respond, so shooked we are all alone in a place of anguish.  Hurt why? It was not just anyone who did the hurting it was one or many who got close and had your love and trust. To those of us who have a broken heart there is a God who heals us. There is a God who bandages up our wounds. No longer do we walk as one wounded without a healer or one broken without repair. He counts the stars and calls them all by name.  Our God counts the stars something that is impossible for us to do. If we took the greatest minds in the world and asked them to perform such a task they would be bewildered; they would come out with the understanding of the magnitude that it takes to count the stars. Our God not only counts the stars but has called them by name; a creator with His shinny creations. To those of us who think our problem is bigger than anyone else's there is a God who can handle it. If a star could be counted, named, and called then so to can we his priced possessions. To those of us who think there is no purpose after the hurts; let it be known to you that you will rise even brighter than the sun to do Gods work again. When God has called you by name you to will perform the task His name embraces. How great is our Lord! His power is absolute! His understanding is beyond comprehension!  Many times it has been said how great is our God and yes He is great. He has done so much for us already and is ready to do more. However here we wait still hurt but functioning, still wounded but walking. It took everything you had to believe you could take those steps, you would take a broken leg rather than a broken heart. To those of us who still wait His power is absolute, it knows no boundaries and knows no end. However one thing is greater in your life and that is a decision only you can make. What a power rivals the will of man against God. To say no is to say no, to not make a decision is to say no again. To those of us who wait. God waits with you and He understands. Now that love is beyond comprehension, The love that is willing to wait when it does not have to. So to those of us who counter God and wait let it be known today is your day of healing today is your day to rest. We always like to leave our readers with a faith action. Pray the following out loud and see how God moves to heal you of a broken heart. Father I forgive those who have trespassed against me to hurt me. I ask you to forgive me for holding ill will against them. Heal me of my wounds and restore me. Make me strong again in the things that matter and make me to walk in newness of life. I love you, I honor you, and I worship you. In...

The Cure For Depression

Many around us suffer from depression so much that it is a state of emergency in many countries including ours. The ADAA facts and statistics asses that 15 million Americans over the age of 18 combat depression. The root of all sickness even that of the mind comes from the devil. For the Bible declares that "he (the devil) is a ...thief that has come to steal and to kill and to destroy," John 10:10. However Jesus declares in the same verse "I am come that they might have life and have it more abundantly." Depression comes to rob you of your time, life, and relationships. Jesus is the cure for anything you are going through this includes depression. Please watch this quick testimony of  how Jesus set Christina free from depression. Below we have added notes so that you can take authority over depression and live a life of freedom.     Here are a segment of notes from Pastor Kevin's message called "Break the curse" James 4:7 So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.   Here are some steps directly from the Bible that we can take to begin to have authority over depression: We are to humble ourselves through acceptance - Simply recognizing and receiving all that Christ has given you, and letting God come first in your life, some of us may need to accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, or we need to repent and rededicate our lives solely to His purpose again. Whatever it may be make sure that He is first.  We resist the Devil- We do this by saying "No" to depression and using the name of Jesus. The Bible declares that when we use the name of Jesus we have an authority over evil spirits and diseases. The Devil will flee from you - We walk in freedom. No longer speaking and living under depression but in the blessing. You see as long as you do the first 2 things God has the rest. We put Him first and use the authority He has given us through the name of Jesus, and the Devil has only one option and that is to run as far away from you as possible. Please confess the following over your life say this out loud: Jesus, I humble myself before you and I accept all that you have done for me. I declare that you take lordship over my life. There is no room for any other thing to have lordship over me. In the name of Jesus, I command depression and anxiety to leave. I am free from having a sad spirit, so I take up Gods joy. I laugh now as my heart is filled with joy.  Now put your hands on your belly and begin to let the joy of the Lord release from the inside. Laugh out loud and see how Gods joy overtakes depression. Praise God for your freedom has...

He Healed All

  Remember in the Bible when Jesus would be speaking to large crowds His amazing words of wisdom and multitudes needed healing. The Bible declared on many instances that when Jesus prayed for a multitude of sick people that they would all be healed. Such was the case in Matthew 8:16 (NCV) "That evening people brought to Jesus many who had demons. Jesus spoke and the demons left them, and he healed all the sick." Well Jesus still heals the sick and He still heals "all". Such was the case on  March, 12th 2017 it was our Pastors welcome back service. Pastor Kevin was gone for over 35 days preaching the Gospel in Africa. That Sunday as the video shows something remarkable happened as the Bible declares all were healed that came to the altars. Pastor spoke about how pain is just a thought that needs to bow down to the name of Jesus and cannot stay in ones body or mind. Enjoy this video below, their are some notes from that days service as well. While you watch believe that pains leave your body in the name of Jesus, Gods healing power will come upon you and heal you. Pastor Kevin's Notes from March 12th, 2017 -  2 Corinthians 10:4 ESV "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds" We must Cast down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ Pain is just a thought and pain needs to be captured and made obedient to the will of God which is healing and wholeness All we need is to replace that thought with a new one take a look at Isaiah 53:5 ​But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. ​If you saw this video and read these words please put your hand wherever you feel pain and discomfort and pray this out loud. In the name of Jesus I command pain to leave. Now thank Jesus for your healing and move where the pain was and see how God has healed you. Thank you...
