Jesus Christ is the head of the church and is himself its Savior (Eph. 5:23). Through his wrath-removing death on the cross and triumphant resurrection, he secured his church’s eternal salvation and satisfaction in him. It is for this reason that we joyfully acknowledge him as Savior, Lord and Leader of City of Joy Fellowship.
Jesus has been given all authority in heaven and on earth, which includes East St. Louis! And in this authority, he has commissioned his followers to make disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:18-20).
In recent years, Kempton Turner has sensed the Spirit’s stirring to make disciples of Christ in East St. Louis by preaching the gospel and trusting Jesus to establish a local expression of his blood-bought church.
There are already churches in the area who are doing a good work and we want to serve and strengthen them. However, we also realize that the harvest of precious souls in East St. Louis is plentiful, and the Lord of the harvest is calling more laborers to go, love, and preach the gospel to them. We are trusting the Lord to raise up more co-laborers and partners to join us on this mission.
Would you partner with us? We are asking our Father in heaven to provide an army of praying believers who will intercede for the sake of gospel advancement in East St. Louis. We are also asking our Father in heaven to provide for City of Joy Fellowship through generous financial partners who cheerfully give to this good work.
We are excited about what the Lord is doing and will do—through you!
