"Pastor John Collins: Bringing Back God


By: Ann Hittinger

There has to be a new awakening of the church! 

We screwed this thing up one person at a time, one church at a time,” shares Pastor John Collins, better known as “Pastor John.” “We’re here to fix it, one person at a time and one church at a time. It’s time to make Christianity cool again!”

As a non-denominational Christian, he has quickly emerged as one of the most respected evangelists in ministry today. He is a unique individual with a true love for Jesus, ‘that Cross’ and humanity. His daily Facebook messages are shared by thousands all over the world.

He is best known for his messages of the Cross. He preaches the TRUTH and that Jesus Christ is the only way.

In blue jeans, cowboy hat and shirt, he stands tall and confident with his Biblically-based words. He doesn’t resemble in dress or philosophy many high-profile preachers of today. Although considered not-politically-correct by many, he preaches with such enthusiasm and passion for the Lord. He does not sugar coat the Bible in any way in Bringing Back God (BBG).

He does not believe in the word “religion,” because it is man-made. Pastor John explains that “when Jesus came to earth, He did not tell us to start multiple religions. There is only one doctrine, and that is Christianity by the way of the Cross.”

Originally from North Carolina, his family moved to Southern Indiana for his mother’s employment. He grew up as a “cornbread and ice tea kind-of-guy, helping out on his grandparent’s farm.” He spent several years raising his family of four sons, JC, Jared, Jayton and Jevyn, where he “luckily, coached [his] sons at all levels” and did whatever he chose to do. Since Pastor John’s conversion, God has blessed him with an 8-year-old ‘Diva’ Ahnica, who fills his life with great joy.

Not always a Christian, he lived a “life of sin and had no intention of becoming a preacher. I did not find God; God found me. I was a sinner and still am, but I loved money and all that it could buy,” expressed Pastor John, “I enjoyed living my life for me with all the toys of wealth; now, I … live my life for God and Jesus, my Lord and Savior.

I am committed to living the Word, as well as preaching the Word. I believe in ‘helping thy neighbor.’” His previous life was filled with a big house, boat, Mercedes, Corvettes and Lincolns, all the “toys anyone could want.”

He thought that he was happy, but, one day “it all went away,” when he was arrested for a white collar crime, which, at that time, “seemed like the end of the world.” As Pastor John explains, “A lot of people in prison find God, I did not. I wasn’t looking for him. I did find a pathetic man who wanted to change but did not know how.

After I was released, I was still not looking for God until one day I heard God tell me to serve him. I heard it in my ear. God knows that if he had spoken to me through my heart, I would have thought it was a panic attack. If he had spoken to my gut, I would have said acid reflux, but God knew in order to change me it would have to be with his voice, and it worked; I dropped everything and became His.”

“On that day,” continues Pastor John, “I promised God to spread His word … to judge no one and to lead people to that Cross. It has NOT been an easy road! As a former prisoner, people try to blackmail you when changing your life, and that has happened several times. And, as much as it hurts and it does, I move forward with the armor of God. One thing I have learned is to accept who I am today and use my past as a testimonial of the power of God. I tell people that I used to be so far from that Cross I couldn’t see it with binoculars. Now I am so close, I have splinters in my hands and there is NOTHING or NO ONE that is going to change that.”

Turning back time to the ol’ time preachers of passion and directness, Pastor John’s sermons are similar and also inspired by God, but not written or controlled by man. In fact, he doesn’t write his sermons, and they last around forty-five minutes. Whether at Sunday services, online or at functions, all listeners get the same passion and vigor for God. He chose God and has given his life completely — God is his boss! In 2005, he began pastoring and preaching all over the United States. He was a guest speaker or guided services/ revivals and other gatherings.

After spreading himself thin, a fellowship of believers encouraged him to move to the beautiful state of Wyoming to base his ministry and provide for his family’s future. Pastor John and his family have promised God to see this through by “saving souls, one person at a time and one church at a time. With the help of our Lord, BBG is a new Christian movement to make Christianity cool again. It is time for change, before it is too late!”

“I think the church today has turned too far away from God,” continues Pastor John. “We have preachers telling people what they want to hear, to increase their congregations, book and CD sells and not what people need. We have [preachers] wanting all of your money. I don’t buy into that prosperity junk; the $20 prayer cloth doesn’t make a difference. If you want salvation, it’s a free gift from God as the saying goes ‘if you want some, come and get some.’”

“Bringing Back God — the name says it all! This world has fallen short of the Glory of God and lost its fear,” continues Pastor John, “and acts as if they have forgotten all that our Almighty God has given us … including Jesus Christ.

Don’t you think it is time to bring God back into the lives of billions and start GLORIFYING GOD and JESUS CHRIST! All churches should be on the same page to have one goal in this lifetime and that is to save souls.

No amount of money can buy a ticket to Heaven. It is through Faith that allows us to even attempt receiving Grace from our Heavenly Father. As Ephesians 2:8 (KJV) reads, ‘For by grace are ye saved through FAITH; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.’”

Pastor John relates to Jeremiah who was called the “weeping prophet,” “I cry for hurting people, especially children. I still pray and cry about my past, but then I realize, without it, I would not be as passionate or have my testimony. Billy Graham, W.A. Criswell, David Wilkerson and Mordeci Hamm have influenced my life; these leaders knew that the church needed an awakening and did their part. Our goal at Bringing Back God,” explains Pastor John, “is to let people know that no matter how rich or poor …

God loves us and wants us all to come home one day.

I preach to give a help-up, not a hand-out. 



If you tell someone you love them or proud of them, it goes a long way and gives them self-esteem.” Another ministry goal is to “get more people to the cross than Billy Graham. Everyone should have a goal and with new technologies, I want to reach more people who will understand the power of that Cross. I am determined to be successful, and, with God on my side, I know it will happen. This world needs change and needs it NOW.

“A New Awakening Revival will be launched in 2015 throughout the US,” extols Pastor John. “As an evangelist, I don’t stand behind a pulpit. Our services are known as ‘throw downs.’ I do not write sermons, I may have a few notes, but we give every ounce of everything that we have every time, because GOD deserves our best at all times.

Remember that no matter what your current situation, there is always Hope. And … our Hope is the cross. Take it personal … Jesus took it personally. You know, my ex-father-in-law Chuck used to say that I was the smartest man he ever knew, but I used it wrong. He was right, but today I know and God knows, I am doing it right and giving ALL glory to that Cross.”

Before ending, Pastor John wanted to thank a few people who helped early on: Jerry Duncan in York, Pennsylvania, owns a guitar shop and supports by playing and encouraging; Ninth Hour Legacy, comprised of Darin Boling-Bass, Joey Burkman-Drums, Amber Boling-Vocals and Jim Kramer-Guitars, have played a large role in this ministries’ growth and play whenever called upon; Billy Mason, Bryan White, Buddy Jewell, Wade Hayes and John Berry recently participated in a revival and have agreed to future revivals; and Gene Higgins, a wonderful man, who has somewhat adopted me and this ministry.”

Pastor John encourages all to, “Support your local churches. Be kind and love one another. But if your church is all about the pastor and not the Cross, RUN. It is time for a change; it is time to BRING BACK GOD. God bless everyone. Hope to see you at a Bringing Back God revival in your city soon. LOVE THAT CROSS!”"

In Montana the Culture of Rape protected by Cops and seemingly condoned by the University of Montana, is rampant. Rape, Stalking, Harassment is NOT taken serious in the State of Montana. STAND Up Against MONTANA Cops and University of Montana Official that Support and CONDONE Stalking and RAPE.

"University of Virginia pledges zero-tolerance policy in rape cases"

If only the University of Montana did the SAME

"(CNN) -- The University of Virginia has adopted a zero-tolerance policy for handling rape and sexual assault cases.
UVA's governing board held an emergency meeting Tuesday as the university scrambled to handle the aftermath of a Rolling Stone article that detailed a horrific gang rape of a student at a fraternity two years ago and that highlighted a trend of indifference toward victims.
Flawed policies were at the heart of the discussion at the special board meeting. However, the specifics of the new zero-tolerance policy will be worked out at a later meeting, university officials said.
A few weeks before the November 19 article hit the newsstands, the student-run WUVA interviewed the associate dean of students, Nicole Eramo, who guides women through their options when they report they've been assaulted.
In the interview, Eramo admitted that no student had been expelled for committing sexual assault, even when there was an admission, and even though offenses such as cheating regularly lead to expulsion.

Victims say UVA covering up rape claims
"I feel if a person is willing to come forward in that setting and admit they violated the policy when there is absolutely no advantage to do so, then I feel that deserves some consideration, that they are willing to say I have done something wrong and I am willing to take my licks and deal with it," Eramo told reporter Catherine Valentine, explaining why no one had been expelled.
Eramo said there had been 38 reports of sexual assault last year.
"I do feel like that person admitting in that context it shows a recognition of what they have done is wrong, and a willingness to improve," Eramo said, when pressed on the subject, adding that a two-year suspension is still "quite a stiff penalty."
A two-year suspension, Eramo admitted, many times means that the victim and the accused remain on campus together.
"I think we are trying to balance the rights of the individual who is being accused as well as the rights of the complainant and sometimes that is very difficult," she said. "I think you would be surprised to see the number of survivors who I've worked with who don't even want to file a complaint, because they don't want to get the accused person in trouble."
Jackie, the woman central to the Rolling Stone article, released anopen letter in support of Eramo to the student newspaper, The Cavalier Daily. Jackie and many other victims of assault at the school in Charlottesville said Eramo helped them tremendously as they dealt with what happened to them.
"How can we not do the same for her in her darkest moment?" asked the letter from her supporters.
"Dean Eramo has truly saved my life. If it were not for her, I do not know if I could be alive today," Jackie wrote.
Another victim who spoke to CNN, Lyra Bartell, said that Eramo has "the hardest job at UVA" and said the problems highlighted by Rolling Stone are more about the policy than about a person.
Bartell, who graduated in May, came back to the university after reading the Rolling Stone article. She has collected more than 200 photographs of people writing messages of support to victims of sexual assault at UVA.
In the meantime, the University of Virginia has suspended all fraternities until after the winter break, and President Teresa Sullivan has called on the Charlottesville Police Department to investigate Jackie's allegations and has pleaded for witnesses to come forward with information.
The university also announced Tuesday that the state attorney general has asked the law firm O'Melveny & Myers to do an investigation of how the school responds to reports of sexual violence, especially in cases where alleged victims choose not to go to the police.
It's been a rough year for the prestigious university.
Students who talked to CNN said there was already a lot of sadness following the killing of first-year student Hannah Graham.
The Rolling Stone article gave them even more to reflect on. Many students said sexual assault is a problem colleges across the country are dealing with, not just the University of Virginia.
They said that once the initial shock of the piece dissolved, conversations between friends shifted from sadness to a feeling that Greek life and campus culture at the school were unfairly singled out."

Pastor John CollinsBringing Back God Church Message;

Hello and welcome.  My name is Pastor John Collins.  I would like to take a moment and tell you a little about myself.  I was not always a Christian.

I had lived a life of sin and had no intention of becoming a preacher.  I did not find God, He found me.

I was a man who loved money and all that it could buy.  I enjoyed living my life for me.  I am now a man who lives his life for God and my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 

I am committed to living the word as well as preaching the word.  I believe in helping your neighbor.

I believe in doing what is right and helping another in need whenever you can.  I believe in teaching the Old Testament as well as the New Testament.  “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.”  Matthew 5:17 The New Testament does not replace the Old, it fulfills it.

We are living in a time when being a Christian is not a good thing.

To tell someone that you are a Christian is to bring on skepticism and disdain.  There are many greedy and self serving preachers that are responsible for that.

There are many preachers that teach people wrong and also teach them to want what they themselves want, which is money. 

I am not here to get rich.  I am here to help you build your faith, get salvation and go to heaven. 
We can do that together by loving one another and helping our neighbors.  I know that corrupt preachers need to be stopped and we need to work to make the Christian faith one of respect again.

I am here to speak the truth and teach the word of God as it was meant to be taught.  I am here to walk the walk and talk the talk.  I serve God and my Lord Jesus Christ.  I am thankful that they have come into my life and given me the truth.

They have given me a passion for righteousness.  They have saved me and I want the same for you.  I hope that you enjoy my sermons and if you ever need to speak with me, do not hesitate to contact me and leave me your number.

May God bless you and yours.

Bringing Back God Church Message of Faith

“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 to all good works.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17

We at Bringing Back God Church are centered in the word of God.

We believe in the Old Testament and the New Testament.

We at Bringing Back God Church know that Jesus said,”Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.” Matthew 5:17 We know that Jesus was born of a virgin by the Holy Spirit and that He is the Son of God. “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear you Him.” Matthew 17:5

We know that Jesus was sinless, was crucified, shed His blood and died on the cross as a reparation for our sins.

We know that Jesus was resurrected the third day and rose to be seated at the right hand of God. “The Lord said to My Lord, Sit You at My right hand, till I make Your enemies Your footstool.” Psalm 110:1 We know that the only unforgivable sin is to blasphemy against the Holy Ghost. “But he that shall blaspheme against the Holy Ghost has never forgiveness; but is in danger of eternal damnation:” Mark 3:29

We at Bringing Back God Church know that,”The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.” Proverbs 9:10 We know that we are to love each other. “A new commandment I give to you, That you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” John 13:34

Our beliefs are simple and based in truth. There is but One Almighty God and He sent His Son, Jesus, to die for our sins. There is God’s Holy Spirit which is witness to all and assists us in our lives and our prayers.

We know that baptism is essential to being a Christian and gaining entry into Heaven. Just as our Lord was baptized, all of His followers need to follow His example. We know that the bible is written to be a source of instruction for our lives. We do not just know the scriptures, we live them. We follow the teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ and hope to help others to do the same.

We at Bringing Back God Church know that to get to the Father you must go through the Son. We know that Jesus and God are of the same spirit yet they are separate entities. Many people choose to interpret the bible in different ways. We choose to read it and know it to be the truth as it was written. It is clear and precise. It tells us to love our neighbor and to love God above all.

We worship Him and His Son Jesus Christ in spirit and in truth.

We know that Hell is real. We know that Heaven is real. We know that each one of us chooses our path daily. God gave each of us free will to do so. We choose to obey God’s law and to help others choose to do the same.
