I’ve attended church ALL of my life…been raised in church, in fact. But, to be honest, I had been confused about what the truth really was because I have heard so many different gospels from so many different churches, so much so that I became damaged spiritually by religion. The Holy Ghost called me out of the church SEVERAL times, but the religion in me just wrote it off as the devil, thinking that surely God would not call me out of the church! Indeed, HE DID!
After some very legalistic practices had been revealed at a church I had faithfully attended for 16 years, I started realizing that something was HORRIBLY wrong with churches, and so I left that particular church, yet still believed that there were possibly some “good” churches still left. Not so. I had gone back and forth to several different types of churches, only to constantly find the false doctrine and heavy religion that was being practiced in each one, which was a huge turn off to me. I was never really satisfied, but DESPERATELY searching for a church home. The problem was that regardless of the Holy Ghost’s efforts to call me out of religion and into TRUE salvation, I held onto the hope that maybe there was still yet a church home, preaching truth, and a perfect fit for me.
Never found it. I just wanted the TRUTH!!!! I then started earnestly praying to God for him to lead me to the truth. I kept praying and kept seeking. HE NEVER LED ME TO A MAN-MADE CHURCH. Then, I met Pam online. I noticed that her posts and videos always seemed to resonate with me, and I could relate to what she was talking about. Everything started coming together, and I was beginning to see the truth I had been praying for continue to unfold! Furthermore, she was preaching TRUTH!!!
I contacted Pam, desperate for help, guidance, mentoring, direction, fellowship, and support as I transitioned out of the religion I had learned my entire life…the Institutional Church. I learned about the fellowship and support I could gain from RESCUE, and joined. I had concerns about my salvation because certain things just weren’t adding up, and I knew that it would be almost impossible for me to be saved, if my entire life, I kept hearing a different Gospel from the TRUE GOSPEL.
When I spoke with Pam, she preached the True Gospel of Jesus Christ to me…but it was NOT recognizable to me…in ALL my years of being in church! I knew I wasn’t saved at that point. I prayed for God to reveal to me if what Pam had said to me was true. And within a DAY, the Holy Spirit began working on me, showing me the evil of the world, and putting MY sin before me. Saving faith entered into me when I realized that A DEAD MAN LIVES, NAMED JESUS CHRIST, AND HE IS GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Suddenly, I realized that HE DID ALL OF THAT FOR ME!!! I realized who I was before God… the wicked, wretched person who NEEDED salvation because there was NOTHING I could do to atone for my wicked nature…NOTHING. I was then led to the cross. God loved me so much that Jesus Christ came in a horrible crucifixion and death, paid the ultimate debt for MY sinful nature through his BLOOD, and then BECAME ALIVE AGAIN 3 DAYS LATER IN THE VERY SAME BODY, just so I could have a chance to be reconciled to the Father. NOBODY, would have done that for me or even has THAT KIND OF POWER OVER DEATH!!!!
That’s how I knew HE WAS GOD! THAT’S THE POWER IN IT ALL!!! In RESCUE, we continue to proclaim the TRUTH that is so obviously missing from the churches today. We are devoted to one another through fellowship, and are a support system to others who have been called out of the Institutional Church and are desperately seeking deliverance, counseling, mentoring, and safe shelter. Pam loves the sheep, and is committed to watching over you and helping you through truth and love, to defeat the schemes of the enemy. I don’t know what I would do or where I would go if I did not have Pam and the RESCUE ministry. If you are searching for love, counseling, mentoring, friendship and support of believers OUTSIDE of the Organized Church who preach TRUTH, then you, my friend, have come to the right place!
RESCUE Mentoring through Pam Sheppard Ministries has given me the support I needed when I didn’t know where to turn after being called out of the Institutional Church. I now have online fellowship, mentoring, teachings, and basically someone to guide me as I encounter issues I face after leaving the I.C. I love it! And I have built some wonderful relationships and get more “meat,” ministry, and fellowship than I have EVER gotten sitting in any church!!! I also get personal phone sessions each month! It is a phenomenal service!
When I had no one who understood, when I searched DESPERATELY for truth, when I had nowhere to turn for shepherding, no one to guide me and be there for me, God led me to Pam, and she was there, to give me the strength and tools I need to have TRUE Freedom in Christ. I thank God for this ministry!
You will too! So give Pam a call at 518-477-5759.
