My name is Joel Beld. My family and I joined Remnant Fellowship Church in 2002. Before this teaching, my life was going in the wrong direction. I started usingdrugs, tobacco, and alcohol as a young teenager and continued into my thirties.
Even though I was raised up in a church and Christian school, I was doing all the things a Christian should not be doing. I would hang around friends that would do the same things. I remember how many times God spared my life because of unwise choices made while being high or intoxicated. I feel very blessed to have survived. My heart was empty. My life had no purpose.
I joined a Weigh Down class and started attending Remnant Fellowship in 2002. After watching my wife, sister and mother change from the lessons taught I felt like I needed help. I was very convicted going through my first lesson that I needed to change or I was not going to go to heaven. By applying these teachings to my life and fellowshipping with friends that do the same, my life has been very blessed. I have lost over 40#, and I am no longer addicted to drugs or tobacco. My relationship with God is strong and continuing to grow. My marriage has been healed,and it’s awesome not to have to be dependent on a drug or substance to give me a feeling. Like the song from Michael Shamblin No More Control, "There is nothing worse than losing peace with God" So thankful to be able to pass this truth down to my family. My heart is so FULL and I feel there is so much PURPOSE in living now. I love filling up on God’s word and the teachings and love I receive from Remnant fellowship. Gwen teaches the truth that bears much fruit if lived out.
Jonah 2:7-8, “When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, Lord, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple. Those that cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs".
Praise God for Remnant Fellowship.
