:) beautiful people with beautiful hearts may they continue to keep going and be blessed
My wife and I were inmates of Marc for almost ten years. We entered on Oct.21,2003 we had been doing missionary work for the dream center when they ran out of room so they sent us to larc . First off ,we were seperated for two years when we finally put together we were closely watched in everything on intimacy allowed. Always being put on discipline because we didn't scream our prayers loud enough to be heard across the street. Discipline included writing scriptures,5000 or more, before we could eat or sleep even if that took a week,dig deep holes, and worseThey promise everyone will become a leader and a pastor one day but as for us they said that we were always going to be their servants we were already pastors but they took that away from us. They told all the inmates that they,the leaders,had now become their moms and dads and legal guardians and the inmates had no say on their life anymore and only say amen to their masters. This is a major cult like Jim jones and other death cults they said once ,if your leader says drink poison and you refused,they will force it in you. Please if you know some one in this cult,get them out as soon as you can.We finally got out as my wife's uncle died and they gave us a 5 day pass to come to the funeral we got back to Phoenix and stayed God gave an escape .Now we pastor Break Every Chain Christian Center a street ministry till we get a building. Our goal is to reach all for Christ
Full Christian Fellowship Center is a Very Friendly Church that preaches the uncompromised Word of God.It is Bible based, Christ-centered, Uplifting andInclusive- a place where you can belong. By the way, my Pastor's name is Glenn Bowden.
I love reaching out to the lost but like I previously said ministry should not be prison camps we are slaves to Christ and that makes us bond servants but to Christ. If Jesus healed the sick and the disciples in Jesus name did swell we can too Jesus did not pick or choose who he would heal all who came to him were healed. And I don't believe there is a sinner who sinned so great that he can not be saved my husband and I were both pastors before we entered their ministry we couldn't wait to pastor one of their centers but, God brought us there to reveal to us the things about this ministry that makes it not of God. Taking our pastoral certificates from us and not returning them was not right not allowing our husband to do the right thing about our car we don't know if it was stollen or not. On the missionary team they produced a card to leaders who go out fundraising because their goal is to reach the lost and souls at the same time. I had to be on good behavior to keep my marriage .the men's home told my husband they wanted to desperate us permantly that the pastor wanted us devoriced . Also someone who brings in 300.00 verses someone who brings in 30.00 their good at soul searching but not fundraising makes it to leadership first respected better.disobeying brings consequenses like scripture writing and other things the men's home hacee had to dig ditches holes and wash vans in the middle of the night. The women's home welcome mothers with children a school age kid in discipline even though they have school the nested day write scriptures too men or women could write up to 5000 scriptures more or less or the whole bible I am not saying writing the bible is wrong I did it to memorize the verses back home in phoenix there is a group at Phoenix First Assembly Of God Tommy Barnett's Church called Masters Commission they write the bible memorize whole books because its part of their training but they want to do it because they are driven by the Holy Spirit plus its part of their training they get sent out to other countries to I sister to other people human videos plus other things going to high schools and rallies to mi sister the gospel of Jesus Christ. But at LARC no its punishment for you bad additude and more any when I was out fundraising and soul searching down town LA two men pleaded for help after I prayed for them torecieve Christ but when I made the call to men's home that I had two souls who need help the denied them in because they had been to prison and institutions and could help them but I thought They were the first people Jesus would help. The lost. Luke 19
My husband and I left Arizona we were excited we had been licensed to pastor left with our ordanation certificates we did short term mission first we were waiting for those who promised support to come in but ran out of resource we humbled ourselves entered restoration ministries Los angles restoration church in the beginning it was okay but the first year with them our car went missing we all make mistakes but just cause we needed their help to keep from being homeless does not mean we failed God lost our anointing did Elijah loose his because he fled and felt depressed or Jonah God offered him shade. This place where we were pulled out the scriptures in me I confessed them till God put us out of this I'm not against rules but for a couple discipline was cerperation my husbands testimony Got turned around 190. In another direction then the truth true we need to help others yes we need to help but don't force them to obey that's not of God and no church is the true church except The Lord Gods we are all imperfect we won't be till heaven they ask for our certificates pastoral ones and I also had lay pastoral certificates from a church here in Phoenix or I should say Glendale from Skyway Church from Greg Brown pastor of this church anointed church and man of God oh but Los Angeles Restoration Church is the only true anointed church shined from the outside world constantly watched that makes them wrong they took are car they took are certificates I was told they tore them up why I only have this to say TOUCH NOT THAT which is Anointed of God
It was well meaning and the people are cool, but some of the practices were unbiblical (i.e, praying in tongues as a requirement and on outside contact for the first month and only letter writing and church (only visitation after the 30-day probation). While on probation, the only option of drink is tea (supposedly for "detox" purposes).Church service focuses mainly on praying in tongues for an hour, healing prayer and dancing around. Their doctrine is very unclear. Bible studies are limited and all translations are accepted.The senior members frown if a person considers leaving or taking another path in life and they stressed that a person does not talk to the next person about their plans. One of the house leaders even pressured me to attend church the day of my departure.My advice for those who feel trapped is pray for boldness and tell the leaders what you really feel and your reasons for leaving.Before accepting an invitation to a program, ask questions and consult with former members on their side of the story.
this church does a lot of good work.it picks I'll call them drug addict up off the street and them to the Melia house,Airport in back of the men's home for those who are detoxing.a small 2 bedroom apartment,that sometime help as much as 12 men at one time. it's crowded but you treated pretty good,as long as you stay. they tell you to stay from one month to two years,it was a culture shock for me because I did not speak Spanish. after being there for about 30 days I decided leave,because this type Christian program was not for me.when I get ready to leave I had to put the same dirty clothes back on that I came in with.I got real mean and nasty with me when I was leaving.the 1 that they would not let me call my to come pick me up. it would not give me a quarter to use a payphone. I can't believe that my Christian Brothers are my so called Christian Brothers would treat me like this. I am home with my family now,I think Jesus for that. my previous employer is going to to rehire me,they call Los Angeles restoration church Melia house and ask them how long I stayed in Detox, they were not truthful and told them only 3 days this was a lie.I was there twicethe first time I stayed 26 days,the second time like 29 or 30 days. I don't understand why they became so mean when they found out I was leaving. they want you to spend the rest your life in the Christian homes. they are not about you going back to your own church and being a productive member of society
