The Lord entrusted the birth of a “Holy Nation” to a born-again white woman who took the time to share with a suicidal railroad hobo, who had been rejected by society, that Jesus loved him in spite of his sin-filled life.
As she lovingly fed him a natural meal, she also wisely spread before him a banquet table of spiritual food, where he would never hunger or thirst again.
With twenty (20) minutes of prayer, thirty (32) years of sin was erased and a life was transformed out of darkness into the marvelous light. God removed the craving of sin from his breast and set him free from every binding habit. Old things had passed away and He was a new creature.
Billy Roberts was saved from a life of drugs and crime and every crooked place was made straight.
Evangelist Billy Roberts was the founder and first Pastor of the Soul Saving Station for Every Nation Christ Crusaders of America. The name was given to him by the Holy Ghost as he walked the streets of Harlem. While preaching in a mission, God sent a revival which led to many being saved and filled with the Holy Spirit.
His fervent message of salvation, grace and love of the lost – led to the vision and establishment of a ministry where souls could get filled with power to overcome sin.
From this revival sprang forth a radio ministry, hospital ministry, tent revivals, prison ministries, and the founding of a “nation” of people, known as the Soul Saving Station for Every Nation.
His unselfish, devoted and tireless service for the Lord, made him a man among men. Souls by the thousands were enriched by his life. His motto:
“No creed but Christ, no law but love, no book but the Bible”
THAT… God’s purpose concerning man is:
To seek and to save that which is lost
To be worshiped by man
To build a body of believers in the image of His Son.
THAT… the members of the body, the church (ecclesia) of Jesus Christ, are enjoined to assemble themselves for worship, fellowship, counsel, and instruction in the Word of God, the work of the ministry and for the exercise of those spiritual gifts and offices provided for New Testament church order.
THAT… these believers, saved and called out of the world, constitute the body of the church of Jesus Christ, built and established upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ being the chief cornerstone.
THAT… it is evident the early apostolic churches came together in fellowship as a representative body of saved, Spirit-filled believers who ordained and sent out evangelists and missionaries, and under the supervision of the Holy Spirit set over the church, Pastors, and teachers.
THAT… the priority reason-for-being of the Soul Saving Station for Every Nation is to be an agency of God for evangelizing the world, to be a corporate body in which man may worship God, and to be a channel of God’s purpose to build a body of saints being perfected in the image of His Son.
THAT…the Soul Saving Station for Every Nation exists expressly to give continuing emphasis to this reason-for-being in the New Testament apostolic pattern by teaching and encouraging believers to be baptized in the Holy Spirit, which enables them to evangelize in the power of the Spirit with accompanying supernatural signs, adding a necessary dimension to a worshipful relationship with God, and enabling them to respond to the full working of the Holy Spirit in expression of fruit and gifts and ministries as in New Testament times for the edifying of the body of Christ.
THAT…we are a cooperative Fellowship of Pentecostal, Spirit-baptized saints from local churches of like precious faith throughout the United States and Internationally to be known as the Soul Saving Station for Every Nation of the Christ Crusaders of America, International, whose purpose is neither to usurp authority over the various local churches, nor to deprive them of their scriptural and local rights and privileges; but to recognize and promote scriptural methods and order for worship, unity, fellowship, work and business for God; and to disapprove unscriptural methods, doctrines and conduct, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
