Winner of the 2015 Male Gospel Vocalist of the Year Award presented by Christian Voice Magazine, Vocalist and Evangelist, Joseph Larson, Th.B. from Jimmy Swaggart Ministries, will return to the Coachella Valley on Thursday, May 30 and Friday, May 31, 2019 at 7 p.m. for Anchored 2 The Cross Ministries, located at 44-919 Golf Center Parkway, Suite 10 in Indio. (760) 347-4999. They have Sunday Service at 10 a.m. and Wednesday night Bible Study at 7 p.m.
This family oriented Church was started over 10 years ago by Pastor Charlie Amador, his wife, Margie, his son and Co-Pastor Donny Amador and his wife, Candy. “Although we are an independent Pentecostal Ministry,” said Amador, “We are affiliated with Jimmy Swaggart Ministries from Baton Rouge, Louisiana and share in their vision of spreading the Message of the Cross around the World.”
Joseph Larson is the Jimmy Swaggart Bible College Music Director and an Adjunct Professor. In addition to his oversight of the Chapel Worship Team, Larson is also a faculty member of Family Christian Academy. He is a very talented Musician along with his sisters; Grace Brumley and Rachel Larson Ford. When this trio sings, their voices are so perfectly in harmony, it gives you chills.
Their father, Evangelist Loren Larson, also a singer and President of JSBC, has been to the Coachella Valley many times preaching The Message of The Cross. The Sonlife Broadcasting Network has programs 24 hours a day on Spectrum Channel 470. You can also download the SBN app on your cell phone and computer; watch streaming on FaceBook or listen to 90.9 FM Radio, Palm Desert.
Along with Jimmy Swaggart, the Family Worship Center has some of the finest Musicians and Singers in the world today. There are so many videos posted on YouTube, one could listen all day.
Getting back to Joseph, he posted a video on his FaceBook page from his appearance at Anchored 2 the Cross last year and introduced his wife, Mary, who gave her testimony and a sweet story of how they met, followed by one of the songs he sings with his sisters, “At the Foot of The Cross”. The YouTube video of this song is amazing along with “It’s My Desire” and “Touch Through Me”.
Pastor Donny Amador posts video of the services on their FaceBook page which can also be seen on their web-site: Anchored 2 TheCross.org where they proclaim:
There is one God, eternally co-existent in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. (I John 5:7 ) The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written Word of God. (Psalms 119; Matthew. 4:4; Luke 24:27)
The Story of The Bible is Jesus Christ and Him Crucified. The Word of God declares that before the foundation of the world, Christ was. (I Peter 1:18-21) God knew through foreknowledge that He would create earth, life and man. He knew that man would ultimately fall and that a deliverer for man would be necessary. He devised a plan in the form of His Only Begotten Son, Jesus Christ. He would send His Son to die on The Cross satisfying the sin debt that would have to be paid. (Hebrews 10:5-10)
The Bible goes into great lengths and detail, specifically in the Book of Romans, how it is that Jesus’ Sacrifice on The Cross not only satisfied the Sin Debt but also allows us access to God by Faith through Grace. We not only can obtain Salvation through Christ and The Cross but, we also through Christ, can live a Victorious Christian Life over sin, the flesh and the devil. (Romans 8:2)
As we continue to Preach Christ Crucified, we are confident that The Holy Spirit will do the work of saving and transforming the lost, baptizing in The Holy Spirit and bringing back the modern church to The Cross of Jesus Christ as the only means by which we can truly live for God.
…and to this I say, Amen…
