My Transition Time is Over


alaska_fairbanks

My transition time is over; it is time to get busy! Our home is officially open every Saturday at 6:30 PM for Bible Studies. Come, we welcome you! We will have good food, real fellowship, fun and the challenging of our characters and ways according to God’s Word. We will allow the Lord to have HIS Way, for His Spirit to flow freely; no manmade religion attached to and no denomination. We are simple Christians coming together. Come, and we will seek the truth as we grow together. I am not interested in members; I am looking for disciples.

But let me give you a few warnings,

  • If you want a perfect Pastor; sorry, I am not your pastor.
  • If you are perfect, this is not the ministry for you.
  • If you are full with traditions of men and you treasure them even when they do not have ANY Biblical backing; this ministry is not for you.
  • If you are used to the Sunday One-Man Show; this ministry is not for you either.
  • If you are comfortable with what the devil is doing and there is no passion or compassion in you to put actions behind the faith you confess, this ministry is not for you. And,
  • If you already know everything, this ministry is definitely not for you.

I am not seating with the vision, contemplating how beautiful the vision is; waiting for an angel to tell me GO! I am not walking with the vision, taking my time, waiting for things to get better…I am RUNNING with the VISION…No time to waste! I am looking for a few runners that will run with me as I run with the Lord.

What is the Vision? Very simple,

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” Ecclesiastes 12:13 (KJV)

We are going to honor God and we are going to do what He says for us to do in the name of Jesus and with the help of His Spirit. We are going out into the streets of Fairbanks to go and get the lost. We declared war against domestic violence, depression, the suicidal spirit over this state, drugs and alcohol addiction.

This is an independent ministry, but not independent from the Body of Christ. If you are a Born Again believer we are family; we are brothers and sisters in the Lord. We are not starting anything new; we are going back to the Word and we are just doing our part. We are here to love you, we are here to get you ready and to send you out to do what you are call to do.

I have no personal agendas; I don’t need your money and I do not do ministry to get pay. I have a job and that is how my God help me to make a living. As we grow, we will not neglect the sick, the poor, the hungry, the one in prison and the nations. We will use finances to be effective in blessing our communities, our city, our state and the whole world according to the grace given to us by God. What is our Mission? Well, thank you for asking,

 To love God above all things, to love others, to love ourselves (Matthew 22:38-39) and to use all of our talents for the glory of God and for the service of His people in accordance with His Word (1 Peter 4:10-11). In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.

Already facing frustrations, already facing challenges, unable to find not even two men that will be sold-out to this vision; but I believe in God, for this is HIS vision; I am just a vessel of clay. I rest this day in the words of Joshua, “And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.” Joshua 24:14 (NKJV)

I sense an urgency like never before in my spirit; this one I am wiling to die for.

An independent thinker with a profound call to see the orthodoxy of the church and passion for Christ manifesting together. Angel was born in Brooklyn, New York in April of 1968, he was raised on the beautiful island of Puerto Rico where he earned his B.S. degree in Sociology with a minor in Education from the Inter American University in San Germán in 1991. That same year he moved to Jacksonville, Florida. After working construction jobs for a year and learning the English language, his first job working with foster-care children in the capacity of youth care worker was with Jacksonville Youth Sanctuary in September of 1992. With JYS he was promoted several times as group home supervisor, legal caseworker, and program director. While in Jacksonville, Angel studied a couple of martial arts styles. After earning his black belt, he became the founder of Good Fight Ministries as he used martial arts as an instrument to preach the gospel. In 2004 Angel was selected Martial Arts Instructor of the Year for the State of Florida and in 2005 Angel was inducted in the USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame where he also received the Christian Spirit Award. In July of 2005 Angel accepted his call to pastor a bilingual church in Winton, NC where he served for a couple of years. Five months later he lost his first wife to cancer in December of that same year. This initiated a deep valley of suffering in his life, a mountain of costly mistakes and the embracing of lifestyles of sin that are well documented through this blog. In August of 2012 Angel moved to Fairbanks Alaska with his wife Rayette Casiano and six children who are now adults. In Alaska, Angel continued his social work-related career and his ministry of preaching, teaching and writing.
