We're changing hearts and minds, 1 person at a time.
The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.
and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is My body which is broken for you; do this in remembrance of Me.”
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love.
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.
Paul, Founder of Big House Revival:
Looking back at my life before I came to know Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, I realize that it is by God’s Grace alone that I didn’t end up locked down, as a resident of a facility within the State of California's Department of Rehabilitation. There are many men in our prison system who started their journey through crimes committed while intoxicated from drugs or alcohol, or both. I am grateful to have a ministry with an office outside of the prison walls … at the end of a day of ministry I have my “get out of jail card” when I hit the gate …. With that said: In 1988 with that conviction on my heart, I had my first experience serving through the ministry of music, in a Federal Prison. Little did I know that this road would eventually lead to me becoming a Volunteer Chaplain for the State of California at Corcoran Prison and Centenalla Prison. I am now sent out as a missionary from Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa, serving at Corcoran and Centenalla Prisons by exhortation and teaching through the Word of God, leading worship, working with inmate worship teams and ministering to the men one on one.
Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.
For it is written: “As I live, says the Lord, Every knee shall bow to Me, And every tongue shall confess to God.”
Romans 14:11 NKJV
All glory to our Lord Jesus Christ for opening the doors of hardened hearts to set the prisoners free!
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners...
Isaiah 61:1 NIV
Why believe in Jesus?
Jesus says He is the exact image of God; there is no other way to Heaven but through Jesus Christ!
Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life.
For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
Jesus said to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.
But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love him"
Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
