Greetings in the Precious Name of Our Saviour Jesus Christ. My name is Issac Raju, pastor of Enhakkore church, a bible-believing church. We are not here to only preach doctrine, but we are here to preach the good news of CHRIST. I was born and brought up in a normal hindu family. I knew Christ as also a one of the gods and I would also worship other Hindu gods, which are idols, and follow their customs. First my mother believed in Christ; after that, slowly, my whole family has been changed. I was against the Christianity Christ. Every day family prayer was conducted, but i would refuse to sit and also grumbled to them not to do all such things.
But still they did not stop; they continued praying, and slowly God has changed my life. I believed in Christ. When I started reading the Holy Bible, God spoke to me through His Scriptures: Romans:3:23, 6:23; then I slowly came to know that I am a sinner and was baptised on March 5, 1993. I wanted to study and get a good job for my livelihood,
DEDICATING TO SERVE THE LORD
