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.

    Hi:) I am a student from Lock Haven University and I met Don and Bobby today. I want to personally apologize again for how rude some of my fellow students were. I appreciate you coming out to talk to us. You guys were different and more respectful than a lot of other groups that have come on our campus.

    God Bless

    Don, it was a pleasure to meet you a few days ago at the pastors’ lunch in McKinney Texas. I wish there had been more time to ask you questions.

    I’ve seen a few videos of you in the public proclamation of the glorious gospel of grace, and am thankful to the Lord that there are men like you who do this. You are an example and an inspiration to many (including me).

    May the Lord bless His Word, and your work, for His glory, and for the eternal good of the elect.

        Not only does the Bible say ONLY the FATHER IN HEAVEN will know the EXACT time He will send Jesus back to retrieve His flerowlos ALSO, did you all realize that this Harold Camping guy has had false predictions before? I guess the last one was in 1994? He also says that the Holy Spirit LEFT (was removed from)us in 1988! We all know this is FALSE! Please guys, don’t be so easily deceived. It only HURTS your faith when you believe lies they don’t happen! I want to see Harolds face on Sunday.

      I want to finish my thguoht here. If God treated us fairly Jesus would have never died on the cross. and we would have never been offered salvation. I praise God that He loves me, He never fails me and He goes to plan B and on. Look ho w He blessed Israel, they sinned and went away from God countless times, but He was faithful and loved them any way. Romans 5:8 But God commended His love toward us, in that while we were sinners Christ died for us. Praise be to God!

    I think the shift in the christian chcruh stems from the way they look at necessity and experiences. I think the west determines the value of any given action based on it’s end result (moral-utilitarian ends justifying the means type stuff). I think this causes the chcruh to take a more hard-liner counter stance (because a lie told in good faith is still a lie and god commands his subjects not to lie) and makes the value of any given action the experience itself of doing that individual thing, even if no one is harmed or even effected and the end result is good. for example: so while one would say it’s ok to lie to your fat spouse when they ask you if they look fat in that dress. the other would encourage you to find an alternative way to compliment your spouses appearance. at times the chcruh tacitly supports ends-means-justify’n and all that good stuff, I think primarily their ethos places the good in individual experiences. the obsession with experience I think would heighten scrutiny on what would be the ultimate human experiences like sex, drugs and rock and roll. all the pleasurables become the focus of the chcruh’s energy as opposed to one’s devotions to one god over another or others. the focus on the pleasure seaking experiences creates this chcruh vs culture dichotomy we all hear about so much in which the chcruh sort of sees the experiences of the world as one packaged group of a way to live; then it see’s itself as THE way to live and lumps in everything it sees in that picture of the world’s version of living and runs counter to it. I think this is why there is an alternative christian consumer brand of everything the world has right down to christian toothpaste.maybe I’m just extrapolating too much. but if I’m right then this could explain why they’re sometimes more concerned with the fact that madonna kissed brittany at the VMA’s rather than the fact that there is a homeless dude they see every day on their way to work. I think the emergent movement is changing these habituations and reclaiming at least a part of a generation of youth who is slowly rejecting even the non-denom’s because they simply don’t see how their choice of experiences is relevant to their moral code.

      I often believe that I have been such a dimntpoiapsent. But, know that when God sees me he sees Jesus. But, here is what I often think about. If God sees Jesus who died for all of our sins, what does Jesus see when he looks down on earth. I try so very hard to be a good person and when I try really hard, I fail. But, when I run to Jesus to say I am sorry, he holds out his arms takes me into a tight hug and tells me it is okay. Go try again but, let me help you. Each day is better than the day before.
