The Beloved Church – Steve Cassell pt 3
When Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist, the Holy Spirit descended like a dove upon Him and then there was voice from Heaven when God said, in Mark 1:11, “You are my Beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.”
We can also read in Ephesians 5:23-24 where the Apostle Paul likens Christ to the “head of the body.” A body with no head is, basically, dead. Since Paul used the illustration of Christ as the head of the Church just like the head is in charge of the body, we can then liken the church as “the body of Christ.” We, the Christians who make up the Body of Christ, are one with Him, we can then say that WE are “The Beloved Church!” AMEN!
I have the blessed privilege of having an on fire man of God on our program today. Pastor Steve Cassell, of the “Beloved Church” in Lena, Illinois, is our guest today. Steve and I attended JSMI Bible Institute and School of World Evangelism way, WAY back in the 1990’s. Steve was one year ahead of me but we were there, sitting under the teaching of Dr. Jerry Savelle.
Help me welcome to the program, Pastor Steve Cassell. Steve, it is so good to talk to you again, my friend!
Steve explains how Andrew Womack confirmed God’s Call for Steve to leave the Corporate world and start serving Him fill time. This is a fascinating story and one that you will want to hear!
How did you end up opening a church in Lena, Illinois?
Now, not only do you have the church, but you also have your personal ministry as well. Can you tell us about your vision for your personal ministry?
What is your next “big project?”
Steve, if someone wanted to reach out to you, to ask a question or perhaps even to do an interview such as this, how can they do that? How can someone get in touch with you?
