A Contemporary, Charismatic, Christian Church Where Everybody is a Somebody and No One is a Stranger!
Hi, I'm Pastor Sesley, and I would like to welcome you to the Calvary Fellowship International website. Thank you for joining us today. It is exciting to be able to minister to you through this vast information network. My hope is that our website will be a valuable tool in bringing you ever closer to the Lord Jesus Christ.
If you have a special need, we want to take this opportunity to encourage you to fight the good fight of faith. God's Word is true and will work for you. Acts 10:34 says God shows no partiality; He simply honors His Word. Since God's Word works for us, we know it can work for you!
Know that you do not need a minister or a pastor to pray for you to be certain God hears your prayer. James 5:16 says the fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. A righteous man is anyone who has received Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. If you have not yet accepted Jesus, then Romans 10:9-10 is the first step you need to take to be assured God hears your prayers. Romans 10:9-10 says that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
I urge you to develop your personal relationship with the Lord (through spending time in prayer, praise and worship, and the reading and studying of His Word) on a daily basis, so that you can effectively fight the good fight of faith. Remember, God longs to fellowship with you. And like a good father, He wants you to come directly to Him with all your needs. This is why He tells us to go boldly to His throne of grace to obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:16).
If you have a challenge believing God hears and desires to answer your prayers, we recommend you study what the New Testamens says about righteousness. This will help you see what it really means to have a personal relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ. This understanding will empower you to act and stand on God's Word. Having others pray for you is fine and certainly biblical, but it is much more rewarding to obtain God's blessings on your own. I cannot begin to express how fulfilling and liberating it is to be dependent solely upon the Lord.
It is truly an honor and privilege to contribute to your spiritual growth in the Lord. Know that we are in agreement for all your needs being met that are consistent with a godly lifestyle, but our desire is that you learn how to walk by faith and not by sight!
I also invite you to join us in one of our church services if you live in or are ever visiting the Southern California area. Please come up to me and let me know that you found us on the web and decided to visit us.
In the service of the King,
Kenneth R. Sesley, Th. D.
