Where We Change Lives...One Verse At A Time!

Pastor Samuel K. Shaw, III


First Lady Shannan Shaw

    We greet each of you in the only name that matters…. that’s Jesus the Christ our Saviour; the one who died, rose and now sits at the right hand of the father making intercession for us.

     We want to take this opportunity to encourage each of you to spread the gospel of Jesus and focus on winning souls to Christ.  We must trust and believe that God will equip us with the necessary tools and confidence to become the vessels that will win souls to Him. There are very real needs at home, in the community and abroad that need to be addressed and it should be our genuine desire to help break some of the barriers that are hindering progress.  Through prayer, love, commitment, understanding and unselfish giving, we must step out on faith and believe that God will lead and guide us in the direction that He will have us to go as we work for the purpose of kingdom building. 

      For this purpose, we must pray without ceasing as we strive to do the work that God has assigned to us.  In addition to praying, we must find ways to reach the broken-hearted, abused and discouraged and those less fortunate than we are as well as the sick, the home- and prison-bound and definitely the unsaved.

      God’s word tells us in Luke 15:7, “I say unto you that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over the ninety and nine just persons, who need no repentance.”  Scripture also says in John 3:17 that “God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” 

       It is God’s desire that no one perish.  It is our assignment to be vessels He can use and create an atmosphere of worship that others can see Him in us! 

 In Christian Service,

 Pastor & First Lady Shaw
