My Vision of Christ and the Church

I am 42, and married, with 3 children.

I received the Lord when I was 16. Right away I began praying, asking the Lord what He was doing on this earth. I visited some Christian groups and denominations. Nothing “registered” within me that this was what the Lord was doing, nor could I sense the real “presence” of the Lord. The Lord’s people were very kind, but something was missing.

One day in high school a girl in my class invited me to a Christian meeting. I went because I was very much seeking the Lord and hungry for fellowship with Christians. In my first meeting the brothers and sisters there were singing, praying, fellowshipping, and praising the Lord. I knew within me, with full peace from the Lord, that this was what He was doing on the earth. In my second meeting I heard them sharing on Christ and the Church from the book of Ephesians, from the ministries of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee. That was so clear to me, and I knew I had found what I had been praying for.

I have been here, in the local church, for 26 years, and the Lord’s presence has always been here and is stronger than ever before. I have been helped to love the Lord, enjoy Him, grow in Him, and pursue Him every day through the ministries of Watchman Nee and Witness Lee. A day has not gone by when I have not read something of their ministries of the Word. I thank the Lord so much for bringing me here and keeping me here.
