|KEEPING MY EYES ON JESUS AND NOT MAN
|I SHALL NOT FALTER NOR FAIL

Here's the story of my path to faith...
It begins a long time ago, when God created the heavens and the earth, placing man on the earth, and
setting a plan to create beings with whom He could have fellowship with. This involved having humans with free
will, who would freely choose God and His ways.This involved the choice between choosing to follow Jesus Christ, God's only
begotten Son, loyal to God the father or Lucifer Fallen Angel of Sin, rebellious against God the Father. At age 4, just
less than a month and a few days of being five years old ,
I pushed my child chair into a corner , making an alter of prayer and choose to follow Jesus Christ (Aug. 17, 1959),
at age 15 I made a deeper and more mature committment, and received the Calling to Preach God's Word.
God directed me to enter the USAF , where I would gain invavaluable leadership skills , human relations training,
discipline attitudes and greater maturity.I earned an Outstanding Job Preformance Award from NATO and 4 metals as a
Vietnam Era Veteran, this allowed me to witness and preach to people from many states in the USA to Europeans and
other nationalities,; I also was able to hear great men and women of God such as Dr. Martin Lloyd Jones, Dr. R.T. Kendall,
Corrie Ten Bloom, Brother Andrew God's Smuggler and many others, as well as provided the funds I needed to attend College
and Bible College.
I spent many years , working various dept leadership roles in local churches, as an evangelist, later as assist
pastor, then an associate pastor, then and now as a pastor.
It has been a long time since 1959, it is now 2003,
the path hals always not been easy, and a number of tears have been shead ;but, I would trade no of all that I have experienced
over all these years, for serving Christ Jesus is a wonderfully fulfilling and blessed life.
I come from a long line of Ministers, Thomas Cartwright ( tittled father of the Puritans); another Thomas
Cartwright, Archbishop of Chester (he petittioned King James' permission to create the King James version of the Bible); Peter
Cartwright, the famous Methodist circuit rider who was also a successful politition( he beat Abraham Linclon in two diffrent
elections), also My father Lloyd Cartwright, who both evangelized and pastored.It is my prayer and feverent desire that my
ministry will find the approval of God, and my forefathers.If there be any thing to glory in my ministry, it is not
my personal abilities, skills or success;but rather, the annointing of The Holy Ghost empowerment, the grace and work of Jesus
Christ, and the divine interventions and blessings of God the Father; I am but a willing tool, an unworthy vessel called and
chosen to do their will,
The Trinity (one God , eternally existing in three persons The father, The son, and The Holy Ghost) preformes the real
work, provides the blessings and empowerment, to God be the Glory for God not I has brought forth all the fruit and blessings
of this His loving servant,

The central core of my testimony is not
about myself, it is about Jesus of Nazereth, The Son of God. Without Jesus Christ, I could not bear the name of Christian.
He saved my soul, scanctified me, Baptized me in the Holy Ghost, and called, then choose me to minister His Word He has sent
the Holy Ghost before me, preparing the way, blessed me abundantly in training, helpers, supervisors, teachers, gifts, abilities,
and much more.
I have traveled many places in this world,
seen many beautiful and impressive Castles, Palaces, vistas, parks, cities, countrsides; but, in all the world I have never
seen anything more lovely and desireable than Jesus Christ.
Jesus alone can only give peace,
joy, wisdom, power. security, supply all your needs and amazingly He gives and grants more than we actually ask for!
Of all that has been mine in this world,
the greatest and best thing is the love of Jesus Christ. If I had to give up everything in my life but one thing, it is Jesus
that I would choose to keep and cling to.
My life has not always been easy,
I have often been in the valley, and not always on the mountain top; but, He has taught me in the valley we grow and improve,
on the mountain we rejoice and rest, we need the valleys to mature, grow and improve.
I rember the day I came
to Him by faith, nealing at a church alter, suddenly I was in a place of pure white light, Jesus was there, much like the
description at the start of The Book of Revelations ( at that time I had not yet read The Book of Revelations); He smiled,
said "Welcome Home, preach my Word, My Gospel, to everyone who will hear you." He smiled a loving smile and I was back at
the alter, I felt so clean, so loved, so diffrent in all the best ways. Noone there knew I had been away, it happened for
them in a twinkling of an eye, for them, for me a brief few minutes passed, but the journey and viion of a lifetime begain.
The vision, doesn't make me someone special,
or give me special privilage, or wiser than anyone else; the vision mearly motivated me to lifelong dedication and service,
as just another called and chosen minister of the Gospel, just like thousands of others serving everywhere.
I have found in Jesus Christ, the most
wonderful and blessed life, and a joy that is beyond words. Jesus Himself is an friend that never leaves, nor forsakes me,
Hes always there for me, when I know I need Him and even when I do not know my need Hes there providing it.
As I am noone special, it means that whoever
you are, wahtever you are, you too can enjoy the same fellowship and blessings, if you will only bow to Jesus, ask forgiveness,
and dedicate your life to serving Him.He turns no one away, He takes you just as you are, you need do nothing special, He
does the transformation of you and your life for you.My most feverant prayer is that you make Jesus, Lord odf your life, and
benifit from the same blessings, that Christians experience every day for centuries, since His ressurection.
God Bless You,
Pastor Glen R. Cartwright
