Quote: Charles Crismier, 'Renewing the Soul of America' @ 2002
"A living, vibrant, Bible-believing, God obeying CHURCH that STANDS against the tide of popular culture, disbelief, self-exaltation is America's only true hope! Only such a people who themselves turn, can begin the timely turning of a nation that is plunging blindly, full-speed ahead to her destruction. **May the light in the lighthouse be turned on once again, blazing the light of God's truth from sea to shining sea. And may it begin with you and me!"
