Either righteousness comes by obedience, or it comes by faith alone, but it cannot be both. It sounds simple enough, as most Christians would agree on that note. But currently, there is some new enthusiasm over a re-emerging revelation of grace and righteousness. And out of it has developed a certain controversy in the Church today. Pastor Chas’ new book bridges the gap between "frustrating the grace of God" by pointing people back to law-keeping for righteousness and blessing, but also where it is possible to "fall short of the grace of God" by wrong doctrine and lifestyle.
A Faith Walk is a media extension of Stevenson Ministries designed to ignite faith in people and send the full gospel truth around the world. The consistent testimony heard of Chas and Joni’s exciting teaching and preaching ministry is that churches and believers are revived, refreshed, and awakened to God. Chas and Joni also pastor Houston Faith Church, a Spirit-filled, inspired, growing church in Houston, Texas with a New Testament vision of building solid Christians who can change their world.
Joni Stevenson is an exhilarating preacher, prophet, and pastor with a firey impartation that leaves people burning with love for God. Upon leaving her CPA career in 2002, Joni and her husband pioneered Houston Faith Church, where they pastor together. Joni also travels around the world in churches and conferences, demonstrating the power of God with gifts of the Spirit, miracles and healings, and precise, solid, New Testament doctrine. Joni is a preacher, a kingdom shaker, a true gift of God to the Body of Christ. From the first moment with Rev. Joni, people are tuned in and expecting, and by the end, they are left in awe of God and in love with Jesus, saying, “what just happened here?”
Chas Stevenson, a stimulating Bible teacher and author of the life-changing book, God, Why?, is also pastor of Houston Faith Church in Houston, Texas. His ministry to the Church at large is marked with a refreshing demonstration of God’s Word and power that quiets the emotions, stirs the spirit, and brings people back to their high calling of God in Christ. With New Testament, scriptural logic that feels like bowling balls crashing through glass pins, Chas is a foundation builder of God’s Word in people, holding nothing back in igniting people’s faith toward God while keeping false doctrine and common Christian distractions exposed by the Word of God. …strong, prolific, honest, and humorous…
After leaving his business systems consulting career in 1997, Chas began serving the Lord with a powerful and refreshing evangelistic and healing gift, igniting churches and training believers to win souls and heal the sick. For several years, he worked with Angelo Mitropoulos in R.W. Schambach’s last five years of tent meetings in the inner cities of America, coordinating street ministry and seeing multitudes saved, healed, and delivered from demons. Since then, he has successfully imparted into local church members an attitude of personal soulwinning and world evangelism that keeps believers glued to the primary call of the Christian and will ultimately help them earn a “well done, thou good and faithful…” in the end.
