I have a passion for spreading Gods word, God is truth and the truth I will share. I live in the mountains of Appalachia (WV), Gods country for sure. I am a father of five and a grandfather , and my hopes and prayers are to see to it that all my children know Jesus and his word. Any and all souls I may lead to Jesus are saints in the making. If you are not sure you are saved, then you probably are not. So if you want to learn what it takes to accept the free gift of salvation, please contact me, or any saved Christian to learn how. may God bless you one and all, amen All our love to you, pastor Kelly H.
