When we look at the scriptural evidence of a prophet in the last days, then we must
agree with scripture and try to identify who that prophet is. We believe that William
Branham was ordained a prophet and fulfils the scripture qualification for that office
in this generation. This is just a brief statement of why we believe there has to
be a prophet for our day and we would be happy to discuss this with you further.
The following are just some of the scriptures that refer to the fact God would send
a prophet ministry before our Lord Jesus Christ would return to earth.
Rev 10:1-7 tells us that the Lord would come down and invest in the seventh angel
to make known unto us the mystery: "But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel,
when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared
to his servants the prophets."
In Rev 1:16-20 Jesus stands in the midst of the golden candlesticks and with the
seven stars in His right hand issuing out orders to the seven church ages that would
come. In verse 20 He tells the mystery of those stars and the candlesticks, stars
being messengers or angels and seven candlesticks being the church ages to come:
"The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven
golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the
seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches."
Jesus speaks in Matthew 17 of sending the spirit of Elijah to restore all things:
Matt 17:11 "And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come,
and restore all things." Matt 17:12 "But I say unto you, That Elias is come already,
and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall
also the Son of man suffer of them."
This spirit of Elijah is to turn the hearts of us children to our Acts chapter two
fathers. Malachi 4:5 "Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming
of the great and dreadful day of the LORD"; Malachi 4:6 "And he shall turn the heart
of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest
I come and smite the earth with a curse."
No one would doubt we are living in a time like that of Noah and of Lot. It was at
those times that Jesus said He would return, but before He returned He would send
a prophetic ministry to reveal Himself and His truths. Luke 17:30 "Even thus shall
it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed."
We see then that God is going to send a prophet messenger to restore back the truths
of the bible that have been lost down through the ages. We believe God did this in
the life and ministry of Brother William Branham. If you would like to know more,

As the banner on our home page says, we are an Old Fashioned Full Gospel Country
Church. We believe the Bible is divinely inspired and is the supreme authority in
all matters of faith and conduct in a person’s life.
WE believe in the SINFUL nature of the human race because of the fall of Adam and
Eve in the Garden of Eden, and of God's love, mercy and grace, which shows us the
way of redemption.
We believe in REDEMPTION from our sin by the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ,
the incarnate Son of God, and His personal return in power and glory.
We believe in the INDWELLING and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
We believe in the ONE TRUE AND LIVING GOD manifested in three offices, Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit.
We also believe that God was faithful to fulfil scripture in our day sending us a
prophet, “BEFORE THE GREAT AND DREADFUL DAY OF THE LORD”. Some would say why do we
need to have a prophet for today?
