Throwback Thursday | Bishop James A. Johnson Interview | Bethesda Temple Church

September 23, 2021 • Bishop James A. Johnson

How much do you know about Bishop James Johnson and his early life? How old was he when he got saved? Did he like sports? Did you know his mother was saved as a result of an outreach mission done by a local church? How long was it after he got saved that he felt a pull into the ministry? This throwback is a testament of how God takes ordinary people, who come from humble beginnings and makes them great. He takes sinners and makes them saints. In Bishop's own words: "I wasn't a saint until I got to be a saint." As you learn some things about Bishop James Johnson, apply his testimony to your own life- he takes regular people, saves them, cleans them up and make them great beyond what people can imagine!!
