Though a small Assembly, we are not looking for great numbers - just the Seed-Children of God. Those who have the courage to believe ALL His Word. We're seeking those who have the courage to stand for Truth in the face of all worldly opposition and religious compromise. This is the hour wherein the Apostle Paul said in 2nd. Timothy 3 that it would be difficult, stressful and hard for the Christian because the vast majority of religious people would be "loves of pleasure MORE than lovers of God.....having a form of godliness.....and from such turn away." And Because they refuse "the LOVE of the TRUTH, God has sent them a strong delusion to believe the "religious" lie and be damned."

By Grace, We preach the Truth, the whole Truth, as recorded in the Bible - the Word of God. "Man Shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY WORD that proceedeth out of the mouth of God" Matthew 4:4. "Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall ye diminish ought from it....." Deuteronomy 4:2.

God's purpose and plan is revealed in the pages of the Bible. From The Garden of Eden to Us in this present Age, the all-knowing God KNEW what would happen in the earth. Before "In the beginning God created....." was ever written, God had already, in His thoughts  knew the "beginning and end of time" and and all that would happen in "time". "According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:" Ephesians 3:11. "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: .....Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:" Ephesians 1:3-4,9. ARE YOU fulfilling God's purpose for your life in the season in which you live OR are you trying to live on what was left over from another season or Age?

We preach repentance - not just "making a decision" or joining a church; we preach the Baptism of the Holy Ghost as taught in the Book of Acts - God putting a part of His own Life in us to feed on the Word and to make the Word Flesh in you.

We preach water baptism by immersion in the Name of the Lord (Fatherhood) Jesus (Sonship) Christ (Holy Spirit). Matthew 28:19 and Acts 2:38-39. This same Jesus has God both Lord and Christ. ALL POWER in Heaven and in earth is given onto Him. We preach holiness in thought, Word and Deed - not a perfect flawless physical life in the flesh but a right spirit and attitude which "presses toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of a flawless life in Eternity". Presently, in Christ we are perfect, but fighting daily with the instincts of survival in our flesh to bring it subject (as a slave) to the Spirit of Christ in our hearts. If we fall into sin and/or a snare of the Devil it hinders and interrupts our fellowship with God but "true repentance" restores the fellowship again. Note 1st. John 2:1.

We preach the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. This is God putting a portion of His own Eternal Life in our hearts to cause us to feed on the Word, increase our faith, live a life that is according to what He says in His Word, and when we sin, that Life will "convict" us. If God recognizes and receives our faith when we "repent" of our sin and are baptized in His Name, testifying of our belief in the death, burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ, God promised to give us the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:38-39. According to Luke 11:13 God gives the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him. In Acts 10, in the house of Cornelius the Holy Ghost fell on the Gentiles as they "heard" and "received" the WORD into their hearts.

We preach Holiness - by Grace, living a life that is pleasing to God. Doing all things according to the Pattern laid out in the Word. "In all things shewing thyself a pattern of good works: in doctrine shewing uncorruptness, gravity, sincerity, Sound speech, that cannot be condemned;.....shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things." Titus 2:7-8

We preach the "end-time - what God IS DOING in this Age". We preach the Second Coming of Christ, the Resurrection and the Catching away of the Living Saints. We witness to the Ministry of Malachi 4, fulfilled in William Branham - a prophet, Predestinated by our Lord Jesus to Introduce His Second Coming, Reveal to the Bride the Mystery of God (Revelation, Chapters 5-6, 8 & 10), the Mystery of the resurrection and Rapture; and declare "The Day of vengeance of our God" and His judgments in the earth.


Still, there are many who would like to know "who" we are. The following paragraphs will give a testimony of the Grace of God in one little Assembly.

The "William Branham Home Page" is sponsored by The Congregation of the Bible Believers Association in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. All work at the Site - it's set-up and daily maintenance, is under the supervision of it's Pastor, Gerald A. Lush. We feel greatly honored that the Lord has chosen us for this task. We covet the prayers of the Saints.

This Association of The Bible Believers was established in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada in December, 1979. It was the result of 'one' young brother, Mark Coffey, responding to a newspaper advertisement sponsored by another Assembly on the Island. For a number of months this brother, a Roman Catholic at the time, had been searching for the meaning of life. He had questions: WHERE did we really come from? WHY are we here? WHERE are we going? HOW do we get there?

For him, the Roman Catholic Church could not answer his questions or dissolve the doubts which troubled his mind. Knowing very little about religion, other than his Roman Catholic up-bringing, he sought his answers from other religious groups but to no avail. Within his soul there was a "deep calling to the deep". He felt driven by a force unknown and led by a hand unseen - Like Abraham of old, he went out, not knowing where he was going. He was following what he would later learn to be "Faith".

The Lord responded to the "deep call" in his soul. In the Evening Telegram he noticed a large ad entitled: "A True Prophet To the Gentiles". It spoke of God being the same yesterday, today, and forever. It brought God, as the Living God, out of the past and into the Present Tense. He wrote asking for literature to check these things out. One by one he began to read the booklets which spoke of what God was doing in the Present. The answers began to come to his questions. The doubts in his heart were dissolved and the Love of God was shed abroad in his heart by the Holy Spirit quickening to his understanding the WORD FOR THIS DAY. He FOUND the Lord Jesus Christ as 'his' Personal Saviour. He became a new creature in Christ Jesus.

Within a few weeks, seven more had joined our brother to rejoice with him over what God had done , and was doing in these days. As time passed, the little church here grew to about 35 in number. Today (2013), after a few of the saints moved to other areas the number of Saints in the immediate Assembly is 23 - this includes a number of children. We have 17 other Saints outside the City who support the Assembly here. The Assembly is multi-racial, including Black and White Saints.

During it's first five years, one of our deacons - Bro. Barry Coffey, started and supervised the church's small printing operation. During that time we printed thousands and thousands of booklets and tracts and sent them around the world. The printing operation resulted in the formation of over 100 Fellowship groups in Africa. Through the printing operation we have ministered in over 60 countries. Years after we had ceased printing, we were still receiving requests for more literature. The WORD is still going. Praise The Lord!

In August of 1995 the Lord laid it on Bro. Mark Coffey's heart to approach his Pastor about the possibility of putting a witness of this End Time Message on the Internet. This led to the formation of "The William Branham Home Page", to bear witness to a new generation of human beings that are daily traveling the World Wide Information Highway. It is said that over one hundred million people travel this highway. Maybe ONE of them might be the "last" predestinated Seed. We are not only witnessing to those who have never heard "The Message", but we have discovered that many 'Believers' are 'feeding' on the 'Spiritual Food In Due Season" which is being presented in these Pages. To God Be The Glory!

The past 33 years hold many milestones for this little group of Believers here in St. John's. There have many many trials, many times of testing, but in it all, we have found, like Paul, that The GRACE of GOD has been sufficient to take us through. Ninety-Eight percent of the cost of all the "outreach" we have done has been funded by the little Assembly here. THANK GOD FOR HIS GRACE.

We covet your prayers for The ministry of The William Branham Home Page here in 'Newfoundland'. Indeed, through the Message Of The Hour, we are pointing the people to the "New-Found-Land" of the promised Word. We are calling ALL Believers to "Come Back To The Homeland" - THE WORD FOR THIS HOUR!
