|About I'm Following Jesus|
Is I'm Following Jesus?
We have taken the vow to follow Jesus, going into all nations, via the internet, teaching the Gospel of Christ, instructed by none other than our Lord Jesus Christ and guided by the Holy Spirit.
I'm Following Jesus is provided to reach and teach the Gospel of Christ to the lost all over the world and His truths from the King James Bible.
I am excited to report that with God's guidance and the internet thousands of people have been visited this site since 2007. All the glory goes to God for He truly is the only one keeping this site up and running.
What is the Gospel?
It is the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

What We Believe & Teach
1. The Scriptures
We believe that the sixty-six books of the Bible are the written Word of God. The Bible is divinely inspired and free from error throughout, in that holy men of God were directed by the Holy Spirit to write the very words of Scripture. "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." - II Timothy 3:16,17. We believe that the King James Bible is His Word Preserved and the only True Bible for the English language.
2. The Trinity
We believe that there is Only One True and Living God; One God in three Persons—God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is infinite, eternal, and unchangeable.
God, the Father: God, as Father, reigns over all of His universe with providential care and is all powerful, all loving, all knowing, and all wise.
God, the Son: We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, is the eternal Son of God, whom became man without ceasing to be God, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful man. He accomplished this redemption by voluntarily giving Himself as a sinless, sacrifice on the cross, thereby satisfying God's righteous judgment against sin. After the accomplishment of that redemption and justification by His bodily resurrection from the grave, He ascended to the right hand of His Father, where He intercedes on behalf of those who trust Him
God, the Holy Spirit (Ghost): We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Divine Person who convicts the world of sin; that He alone brings new life to those who are spiritually dead; that He baptizes (or places) all believers into the one true Church, which is the Body of Christ; that He indwells them permanently, seals them unto the day of final redemption, bestows spiritual gifts upon them, and fills those who are yielding to Him. Every believer is called to live in the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit so that he will not fulfill the lust of the flesh, but will bear fruit to the glory of God.
We believe that man was created directly by God and in His image and that He created the heavens and the earth, including all life, by direct act in six literal twenty-four hour days about 6,000 years ago.
We believe that although the first man, Adam, and the first woman, Eve, was created in the image of God, their fall into sin is the basis for the necessity of salvation for mankind. Death, both physical and spiritual entered into this world subsequent to and as a direct consequence of man's sin. This is true of all men; and all men are sinners, inherently from Adam and individually by choice and are therefore subject to God's wrath and condemnation. Except a man be born again by the Holy Spirit, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
We believe that salvation is the gift of God's grace alone and is expressed in the individual's repentance, recognition of Christ's death as full payment for sin, and acceptance of the risen Christ as as Savior. Salvation cannot be gained or made more secure by meritorious works, but is freely bestowed upon all who put their faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ at Calvary. All who so trust the Savior are forgiven of their sins and born into the family of God by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit. Freedom from the penalty and power of sin is available to man only through Christ's sacrificial death, His shed blood, and His complete and bodily resurrection from the dead. Those who do not believe in Christ are subject to everlasting punishment. Believers enjoy eternal life with God.
6. The Devil – Satan
We believe that Satan is a person, the author of sin, a liar and the father of lies, and the reason for the fall of man, and is destined to the judgment of an eternal punishment in the lake of fire. He is the personal spiritual adversary of both God and man.
7. Atonement For Sin
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as the one and only sacrifice needed for atonement or redemption, and that all who believe on Him are redeemed by His sinless blood shed on the cross. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord Jesus Christ and in His ascension into heaven; He is our High Priest and Advocate.
8. Eternal Security
We believe that Christ keeps those who are truly born again, once one accepts Him into his/her life, he/she receives eternal life.
9. The Christian Walk
We believe that we have a holy calling to walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit, and so to live in the power of the indwelling Spirit in order that we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. The flesh is never eradicated in this life. Individuals must choose to keep the flesh in subjection to Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit, or the flesh will surely manifest its presence in life and dishonor our Lord.
How This Website is Directed by God?
This website is truly directed by God, the Holy Spirit has been directing me with everything contained here from the start. And here is what He pressed on my heart.
1. The Name
Here I am on a Thursday morning, June 5, 2009 5:30am, praying to God to give me direction on how He wanted me to serve Him using the internet. I already had a website promoting Christianity, but thought something was not quite right. Then all of a sudden this name pops in my head, Ready to Follow Jesus. The name sounded catchy and too good to be true and I actually thought, "No way?", but I did not disregard it and when I got up I checked to see if the domain, readytofollow.com was available. First thing I thought Praise God, He gave me a name! Now, I must use it for His glory. Then a year later, the sites namesake imfollowingjesus.com was created because the site has always been titled I’m Following Jesus, and added to further our mission to reach the lost with the Gospel. Now, readytofollow.com is solely used to give the plan of salvation.
2. The Finances
I am a self employed webs designer who has been hit very hard by the economy, I can go weeks without getting work. God provides all the finances needed to keep this site going without any donations.
3. Instant Access
I usually takes about 48 hours for a website to be published and in the system, this site had instant access the second it got published.
4. Quick Search
I registered the domain name with Google the next day, usually a website takes about 3 weeks for it to get picked up by the search engines. Within two days it could be found on the Google search, and within two weeks it was listed at number 44 in the search. Within a month it was listed on the first page.
The amazing and wonderful power of God! Without Him, I'm Following Jesus would not exist. I believe that God will use this site and all the sites created in a great way to help not only get many of the lost found, but to also provide wonderful encouragement and inspiration to keep all Following Jesus. Praise God!
Who Am I?
Confirmed Born Again Date: July 10, 2004
Denomination: I do not belong to a denomination, I am an Independent Baptist
Church: Brush Arbor Baptist Church (My ministry is not associated with my church)
Favorite Old Testament Books: Job, Genesis, Joshua, Ecclesiastes, Isaiah
Favorite New Testament Books: Luke, John, Romans, Ephesians
About Me: I grew up Catholic, but had a very hard time with it, even though we were not devout, we followed all the rules associated with it.
In 1984, This was what started my interest in Jesus, I spent the summer as a youth group leader, which peaked my interest in God, that was actually when I received my first King James Bible, and I still have it today.
One day, I cannot tell you the year, I was watching a TV evangelist and felt it was time to ask Jesus to come into my heart, and I did, but I really had no idea what Jesus really did for me, of course I knew He died on the cross, but never knew the real reason.
In 2003, under the strange influence of my brother, who started going to church, I walked into a church after only going to midnight mass or Easter services in the Catholic church.
In 2004, I received certificates in Spiritual Awareness (Christ based), and completed courses in Relaxation Therapy, Aromatherapy, and Holistic Nutrition, but something was missing, I was getting sick, losing everything I owned, and quit the one secure job that I had because of pressures. I got really sick, so sick that I almost killed myself by mixing two different herbal supplements. It was then that God literally spoke to me, told me that He did not bring me here to die that way, and to get up. That day I sat on my bedroom floor reading the entire Book of Job. That day was July 10, 2004 and the day it was time to turn my life over to God.
In 2006, I found a King James Bible preaching church, got baptized, and began serving God instantly. I began witnessing to people online and through daily Bible studies, and today, I continue to write the daily Bible studies, which enable me to study God's Word, teach it to others, and reach the lost, and those questioning their faith.
In 2007, I started a spiritual awareness website, then in 2008 the I’m Following Jesus ministry began.
Currently, I am a Sunday school teacher and devote as much time as I can to God and the church.
I am also a Website Designer and Personal Chef, however my work does not take me away from what God has really intended for me to do, His mission. I am devoted to serving God, reaching as many lost souls as I can, and teaching God's Truths. I know that as long as I put God first I do not have to worry about my needs because He always provides me with them. Praise God!
