I have studied the Bible for almost 50 years with over 30 of that in the ministry. It was my privilege to be introduced to Ariel Ministries at a prophecy conference in 1979. This was soon after I had left seminary where I had sat under the some of the same professors that Dr. Fruchtenbaum has studied with during his time at Dallas Theological Seminary and later some who had been his professors. Those some of them were critical of his stance on certain areas of prophecy they did not offer a better explanation of the issue. For almost 20 years I met a number of people, both scholars and those in the pews, who were aware of his teaching and they seemed to be mostly skeptical of his offering. In the last ten years there has been a major change in what I have been hearing. I have seen Dr. Fruchtenbaum's writings on many pastor's shelves and his writings quoted in many of the articles that I have read. It has been my privilege to host Dr. Fruchtenbaum in my home and the churches that I have pastored. For the last fourteen years I have served as the Protestant Chaplain at a California State Prison. Arnold has, on three occasions, delivered seminiars on the Word of God to the inmates at the prison. His materials are the most popular of all that they can obtain from the chapel libraries. Of all of the teachers I have been privileged to study under, Arnold has been to one that has opened my understanding of the Bible. I would encourage anyone who is serious aobut their Bible study to contact Ariel on the phone or at www.ariel.org.

After trying out countless churches in San Antonio, this is the one. The people are genuinely friendly and real. They share their ups and downs and support each other. Small groups meet for dinners, house gatherings, and time to know one another. The teaching comes straight from the Bible, section by section, not just words picked out here and there combined with one person's spin. Many in the congregation have spent their lives studying, even obtaining Bible degrees, in order to be more useful in the church and to teach others. Many opportunities here for community work and missions.
God is moving at Victory Temple in a mighty way. There is a fresh annointing of the Holy Spirit on Pastor Jubal Garcia (Freddie Garcia's son)....The vision of the church is to reach out to the unreachable and love the unloveable, just like Jesus did...Freddie Garcia humbled himself before God over 40 years ago and God has used this man to point countless men and women to Christ and the finished work of the cross and Christ has delivered them from the power of drugs(sin). There is NO match to the Power of Christ and that is what they teach at Victory Temple. Please come visit.....
