Lessons to transform your life

Since the ministry began in 1989, Teacher and Pastor Ron Crenshaw has been recording and documenting the teachings he has shared with his congregation, knowing that the lessons were not merely for our congregation in California but also for the Body of Christ at large.

Many of these lessons are available online on this website, in written study-friendly format called Essays from the Word, in brief summaries known as The Latter Rain Update, or available through our church library.

The bible says that if you seek Him (God), you will find Him when you search for Him with all your heart.  These lessons are the answers to many of your prayers as to why things happen the way they do and how you can be successful in your Christianity.

Take heed that you do not take these teaching lightly because, “To whom much is given, much the more is required.”
