Bishop James C. Austin, Sr.

I thank God for you and am delighted that you are visiting this website designed to develop you Spiritually, Intellectually, Physically, Socially, Emotionally, and Economically. Our primary goal is to represent Christ as His body here on earth. Thus, our hands are His hands – our feet, His feet – our tongues, His tongue – our bodies, His body – to be used to bring Him glory and honor. The St. Luke family emphasizes the high standard of God, namely His holiness, and is concerned about becoming the holy people God requires us to be. For we are created for God’s pleasure according to Revelation 4:11. Jesus said, My meat is to do the will of Him that sent Me, and to finish His work (St. John 3:34). My #1 objective is to do what God wants. “Not my will, O Lord, but thy will be done.” I want what He wants. I was inspired to write a book entitled “THE GOD-ORDAINED LIFE”. This book reveals God’s plan for our lives. Since it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps, we must look for guidance from our Creator. He knows His purpose for our existence; He did not leave us here to try to figure it out alone. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” (Jeremiah 29:11) The 13th verse says, “And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart.” Get to know the revealed thoughts of God captured in His word, and you will arrive at your God-ordained destiny, for God said that He will give you an expected end. This site is designed to provide the history, structure, and order of this church and to assist you in determining where you can render service unto the Lord. I am sure you will find it helpful. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact my office. We are waiting to serve you. Bishop James C. Austin, Sr.
