“Our country is in danger, but not to be despaired of. Our enemies are numerous and powerful; but we have many friends determined to be free. And heaven and earth will aid the resolution. On you depend the fortunes of America. You are to decide the important question, on which rest the happiness and liberty of millions yet unborn. Act worthy of yourselves.” –Joseph Warren, Boston Massacre Oration, 1775
“If revival is being withheld from us it is because some idol remains still enthroned; because we still insist in placing our reliance in human schemes; because we still refuse to face the unchangeable truth that, ‘It is not by might, but by My Spirit.’” – Jonathan Goforth (February 10, 1859 – October 8, 1936, (Missionary to China)

Invitation to OSA National Event, July 24th -31st, Rochester,NY
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ: Jerry Crawford and I are delighted to extend an invitation to you and yours to join us in contending for the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and for Life in Rochester, NY this July 24-31st. For forty years the American Church has wandered in the wilderness, seeing a rise of Godlessness and 55 million children destroyed as a result of the United States forsaking our Biblical heritage and foundations. Yet the promise of Isaiah 60: 1-3 rings true. “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.2 See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn.”
Could it be that OSA Rochester, NY will mark our passing through the Jordan and into the promised land of renewed hope, renewed righteousness and restoration? Come and be a part of what God will do! Rochester has been the site of historic revival during the C. G. Finney’s ministry in the mid 1800’s. Rochester was a vital station on the Underground Railroad and the home of former slave, freedman, abolitionist leader, and Christian, Fredrick Douglass. It’s time for the church to arise and contend again! It’s our turn now!
