At The Door Christian Center we believe that Jesus can change lives! Here are testimonies of lives touched by the power of Christ’s resurrection. If you are looking a true change from the “inside out” Jesus is the answer!
Samuel Donavan: I first want to thank God for my salvation and for what he has done in my life. I grew up in a broken home and because of this I became bitter and angry. I knew about God, Jesus, and salvation but I always told myself that it wasn’t for me. I moved to California from Arizona with my family and I started going to a Pentecostal Christian Church. A few months later I got saved. We moved back to to Arizona and I found my old friend’s. I begin to backslide. I started smoking weed and stealing for money because my friends were doing it and I thought it was cool. We started going to The Door Christian Center and I just felt God’s conviction again. I saw that God really saved my family. I gave my life back to God. I’ve been saved for four years and it has been the best years of my life. I thank God for what he has done in my life because if it wasn’t for him I would be in prison right now with the rest of my friends. He’s blessed me with a lot and gave me a beautiful girl to live the rest of my godly life with.
Chemiah Casoose: Hi my name is Chemiah Casoose and I am 25 years old. I was born and raised coming to The Door Christian Church and never missed a church service. I grew up always hearing that Jesus died on the cross for my sins, how we can ask him to live in our heart, and make heaven our home. I was a typical church kid who just came to church because I had to and not because I wanted to. When I was 8, I found a passion for basketball that would later drive me away from God. I played on a club basketball team and I loved it more then going to church. I would miss Wednesday church because of practice and I would miss Saturday and Sunday because of game tournaments. Basketball was such a passion of mine. When I was 12, I had three high schools ask me if I would come to their school and play on varsity team as a freshman. I ended up ranking 14th in the nation for forward guard position at Adidas San Diego Camp. I never got in to weed or parties, but I did start trying alcohol. I didn’t really think about God because I was happy at school and playing basketball. I really looked up to my older brother. He was into girls, drinking, drugs, and the party scene. To me I couldn’t wait till I grew up and do all he was doing because it looked fun. It wasn’t until he gave his life to God and I could see the evident change in his life that change my life forever. The change in him made God so real to me that I wanted what he had. I accepted God in my life when I was 13. He set me free from internal depression no one knew about and gave me true happiness. I felt so clean on the inside! I got filled with the Holy Ghost at at a revival with Pastor Jerry Fussell. That is where I experience incredible joy, peace, and love in my life. I felt true purpose in my life! I had a different passion after I got saved and the love of basketball faded away. I wish I could say that I served god to the fullest all these eight years, but there was a time where I had backslidden and turned away from God for a couple of months. I fell into temptation and ran into an ungodly relationships and thought I was experiencing love. I ended up being heartbroken and alone. During that time, I re-dedicated my life to God and felt a true love and forgiveness. It really strengthened my relationship with God and enlarged my faith. After that experience, I felt so unworthy to have any blessings or any one to love me for what I have done. God helped me forgive myself and those who hurt me. I feel so blessed to be able to say I married my best friend and the love of my life. He loves God and loves me regardless of my past. God is truly amazing and has shown himself to me in so may ways. He has changed my life and now I am excited to see all that God has in stored for me and my husband.
