Jubiliee Testimonies

This is a time to look back and reclaim the feeling, assurance, commitment, and love we have for the Lord Jesus Christ. You can revisit the 50 days of Jubilee Testimonies to view previously published testimony letters from our congregation.



The Devil Made Me Do It

How many times have we heard those words and possibly even said them ourselves – well my experience in my life at Heritage Church of God should read, no it WILL READ  - “God Let Me DO IT”. About two years ago my wife Elizabeth stated to me one Saturday evening, out of the blue, “Let’s go to church tomorrow morning.”Somewhat surprised, I said to her, “OK, but WHAT church?” to which she replied “I don’t care, let’s just try a few out for size”, so we did.

First church we went to was a Free Methodist church and the folks were very friendly and accommodating, so friendly that we went back a SECOND Sunday. Well, me being the procrastinator I am, I stated “Let’s try a few more and see which we like the best”.

Day 50: The Next 40 Days

As we come to the close of Jubilee.  We step into our Forty Days of Fasting and Prayer.  Many look at fasting as a different way to diet.  “A diet changes the way you look, but a fasting changes the way you see.”  

Prayer is communicating with God and fasting will keep reminding us that we need to communicate with Him.  My prayer for the next forty days is that we will grow closer to Him as we have grown closer to each other in the last fifty days.

My God bestow his greatest blessing on each of us during this Lenten season.

Day 48: There is Joy in the Lord

PDF Print E-mail

This “old” Church of God hymn sums up my walk with the Lord.  He has blessed my life with so many wonderful experiences, family, and friends.  I don’t have that empty feeling that so many experience because Christ has filled it with His love, peace, and joy.  The hymn says, “I will shout I am free!  In my blessed loving Savior I have sweet victory!”  My Father is the Creator of all things, what have I to fear?  Another verse states, “I am safe and secure.”  Isn’t that what we all want?  Only God can give us that assurance.  The last stanza talks of the time of our final day on earth and an eternity with MY LORD and MY KING.  It says I will sing with holy angels.  That’s exactly what a musical person wants to hear…singing with the ultimate choir.

A Better Person

PDF Print E-mail

I have been going to Heritage for about seven years now and it has always meant a lot to me.  You can really see God in the church and in the people that attend.  This church has been like a second family for me.  Whenever I am sad or lonely, the people always cheer me up.  Everyone is so nice and upbeat and it is nice to know that so many people care about you.

I believe that attending Heritage has really made me into a better person and has played a major part in my walk with God.  Going to church helps me ground myself and stay on the right path.  I wouldn’t be where I am, or who I am, today if it wasn’t for Heritage Church of God.

I am extremely grateful for what God has given me.

Day 49: My Divine Appointment

The following pages were written by Anne Maze, a lady that Justin Kipplen met en route to Marine boot camp in Parris Island. The article speaks for itself and Justin’s Christian heart. He has endeared himself to Ms. Maze as he will to you when you read this article.

Please keep Justin Kipplen and our other service members in your daily prayers.

On the Delta flight from Detroit to Atlanta today, I had the most delightful seat companion-a young man of 19 years of age-his first flight. Because of my husband Jay’s navigating and walking difficulties, the flight attendant suggested we take the window seat and middle seat, although he was supposed to have the aisle seat. When this young man arrived, he didn’t know how the seat assignment letters went, and I explained that the letter “F” was the window seat and apologized that Jay was sitting there as it was very difficult for him to get up. The young man was very courteous and said not to worry, he didn’t like heights, had never been on a plane before, and it didn’t matter to him. I introduced myself as Anne and he said his name was Justin.

Day 47: Why Am I Here?

PDF Print E-mail

When my daughter was just about eight years old, we started attending a small church in Holland where we felt very comfortable.   The Word of God was preached and practiced.  We made many close friends and the congregation became our family.   Our spiritual and social lives were centered with these people.

As often happens, things change.  We acquired a new pastor who after a few years, very unexpectedly split our congregation and our building was closed and sold.  These events caused me to feel betrayal, anger, and sadness at the loss of my church and church family.  So why am I here at Heritage Church of God?
