About Us

Don Karns is a born again believer, redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ.  Born with the the nature of Adam, a nature that was in rebellion to God and in love with self, sin and the world. But now by God’s grace and in a demonstration of His mercy made a new creature in Christ, sealed by the Holy Spirit of God, all for the glory of God. Those who have known me and my past, behold the old things have passed and all things made new.

Luke twenty four vs 47 is dedicated to bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost and fallen world and proclaiming what the Lord Jesus Christ did for sinners in order to bring us right before Him, and to bring Glory to God. The name of my ministry came from the Bible: “This is what is written, the Messiaah would suffer and rise from the dead the third day, and repentance and remission of sins would be proclaimed in His name to all the nations, beginning at Jerusalem.”
For Jesus Christ came not to condemn the world but that through Him the world might be saved. For GOD so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son so that whoever believed upon Him should not perish but have eternal life. I testify everything is from God, who reconciled us to Himself and has given all believers the ministry of reconciliation. That is, in Christ, God was reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed the message of reconciliation to us. Therefore as  believers we are ambassadors for Christ, certain that God is appealing through us. And so we plead on Christ”s behalf, “Be reconciled to God” for He made the One who did not know sin to be sin for us, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Co 5.18. Have you come to the place where you have acknowledged your guilt before a Just and Holy GOD, Have you come to know that there is no merit in you or in your deeds that would compel GOD to passover your transgressions and unless GOD were to grant you mercy instead of His justice; unless by the unmerited favour (grace) of GOD, He would grant you the saving faith to believe that your iniquities had been placed upon His Messiah and that Christ’s obedience were credited to your account so that you were declared righteous or clothed in the righteousness of Christ, that you had been redeemed from the curse of the law, that your ransom had been paid in full, not by slver, gold, or the blood of goats and bulls, by the precious blood of GOD’s eternal Son Jesus Christ? Have you been born again ? Can you look to your life and see some sign of conversion, some fruit of repentance, the turning from self and turning to GOD? Has GOD taken your love for sin and the world and replaced these with a hunger and a thirst for righteousness? Have you been sealed by the Holy Spirit of GOD that you could call GOD your Father knowing that a father would not allow his child to remain in sin. Though not yet perfect can you honestly say that you are not who you were? Are you ashamed of that life and so devoted your life to the One who gave His life freely that you would live in Him and by Him and for Him and through Him? Then rejoice and be glad. If not fear the day and moment when you take your last breath and close your eyes for the last time. That instant comes for us all and after death comes the judgement of GOD. We must all stand before the judgement seat of Christ. Look to Christ and be saved all ye to the ends of the earth! All reconciliation with GOD, all grace all mercy all forgiveness all hope all wisdom all knowledge and life eternal are found in Christ. Look to Him. One more thing. He is the Way the Truth and the Life and no one comes to the Father but by Him. Theree is no other name under heaven given by men by which we must be saved. Jesus is GOD. To deny this is to deny the only way that you can be saved. For salvation is of the LORD and will give His glory to none other.

WHAT I BELIEVE:

I believe in the the Bible, that all Scripture, Genesis through Revelation, is inspired by God. There are no errors or missing books. “ For the Word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12).

I believe that there is one true God, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen. That He exists eternally in three persons; The Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

I believe, according to the Scriptures, that Christ, in his deity (Father, Son, Holy Spirit), was born of a virgin and died for our sins shedding His blood for atonement of sins, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third dayin accordance with scripture. He lived a sinless life. (because he was God) I believe in His miracles, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, He will come again to judge the world in righteousness. And I also believe in the fall and sinfulness of man and that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. I believe that the offerring of His soul as a sacrifice for sin was accepted by God and that His blood and His blood alone provides remission of sin. I believe that no man can come to God’s Son unless God draws them and I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day  2Tim 1.12.

I am not ashamed of the gospel for it is the power of God unto salvation, to the Jew first and then to the Gentile.

I agree with the the 1689 London Baptist Confesion of Faith.

    11 Brothers and sisters, do not slander one another. Anyone who speaks against a brother or sister or judges them speaks against the law and judges it. When you judge the law, you are not keeping it, but sitting in judgment on it. 12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the one who is able to save and destroy. But you—who are you to judge your neighbor?
    James 4:11-12 NIV

    I think you need to read your bible again. What you are doing is fuelled by hate and fear, nothing like what Jesus preached. Jesus came from a place of love and forgiveness. It is sad that organizations like yours give true followers of Christ a bad name.

      I agree with Gabriel. You are not spreading anything but hate especially when telling a young woman that she is “a good woman for sitting down and staying quiet.” You Sir are what is wrong with this world. Maybe you should reflect on your sins and stop trying to pick out everyone else’s. I hope God never forgives you or your sins. Have a blessed day.

      Thank you for leaving a comment. You have left a great verse from Jame’s letter to the brethren of the Diaspora. His letter was addressed to believers whom God has brought forth by the word of truth (18). When we go to share the Gospel on a secular campus, we would not consider that we were speaking to brethren. In fact the great commission commanded by Jesus (see Matt 28, Mark 16, Luke 24vs47) to all believers is go to non -believers in Jerusalem, Samaria, and the whole world. Another command of Jesus is found in John 7 vs 24, in which Jesus commands that we would judge righteous judgment. In other passages He declares that we will know false prophets by their fruit, ( for this we must judge) and we should not cast our pearls before swine ( again we must judge). There are plenteous Bible admonitions to judge and also many warnings (as in James) against judging by appearance or judging in hypocrisy. The Spirit of God speaks through Paul about judging 1 Cor. 6
      “And the saints will judge the world.”
      Your thoughts on our preaching being fueled by hate and fear are subjective; though I acknowledge your entitlement to form your own opinion. As one of the speakers, I disagree with your description of my emotions. Just last year the government in the U.K. Removed the term hate from their section 5 laws concerning aggressive speech, conceding it was subjective and allowed too much discretion to the listener. As for hate, I can attest we preach with a motive of love. We preach because we believe the Bible to be true; and knowing the terror of the Lord, we persuade men. As for fear, I agree we can not scare one into submission. However for those who suppress the truth of the existence of God and therefore deny a future recompense for their deeds, the question would be:
      1. Why would they fear
      2. How could we in good conscience not warn of their peril.
      3. For Jesus teaching on fear, please check in your Bible – Matthew 10.28 and Luke 12.5.
      4. Additional encouragements to fear the Lord, and the blessings which come from fearing the Lord are too numerous to list, but a simple word search would provide ample citations.
      5. Jesus came to save His people from sin, to grant eternal life to believers, and to glorify God. He preached repentance and believing; saying that “unless you repent you will perish,” and He sent His disciples out commissioning them to preach repentance and forgiveness of sin. I have mentioned some verses from the Bible in hopes you might read and pray for understanding. There was love in His mission and He demonstrated His love by laying His life down for undeserving men and women. We demonstrate live now by preaching Hesus Christ, and Him crucified. Thank you for writing. On the home page of this site, there is a short message preached by Pastor Steve Lawson; not on a campus, preached instead in an environment you may be more comfortable with (church building) maybe you may even add an Amen. I hope you will take a listen, Thank you both Gabriel and also Elizabeth. I was present and never heard a mention of women being silent. Maybe there was a misunderstanding.
