Welcome to the Voice of The Common Man

Our Purpose:
To present the good news of Jesus Christ through Gospel Music and the written word. Our desire is that you will be informed, enlightened, and motivated to accept the “free” gift of salvation that Jesus offers.  And then, you will find and pursue your purpose in life.

We Pay Taxes:
We are not tax-exempt.  We pay taxes just as Jesus told the disciples: "Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and give to God what is God's" Matthew 22:21.    Since tax-exemption can only be authorized by the government, we do not want to give the government control over the "voice" of this ministry.

What We Believe:
Our beliefs are very simple.  There is only one God......the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob......and Jesus is the only begotten son of God.  Jesus was crucified on the cross for the sins of you and me....He arose from the grave on the third day.....and He lives and reigns today at the right-hand of God....and he will one day return to gather-up his Church (born-again followers of Jesus).

Jesus is the only way to the Father and you must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God.  Once you are born again, the Holy Spirit comes and resides in your heart to counsel and guide your every step.  

There is a Heaven and there is a Hell - and - there will be a Judgement Day, and Jesus will be the judge.  Everyone shall one day kneel before the Lord and be required to give an account of their life - both the good and the bad.  God is the only one who knows when Jesus will return, Jesus himself is just waiting for God to decide "today is the day."

That is why it is so important for you to be ready.  Choose right now to repent, and ask Jesus to come into your heart and be your Lord and Savior.  Please do not risk spending eternity in Hell!

Who Am I:
I am just an ordinary person whom God has called to help "Prepare the way of the Lord" through the writing of Gospel Music, books, and commentaries......all of which are inspired by God's word.

I love the message God gave to Habakkuk more than 2,600 years ago. “Write down the vision; write it clearly on clay tablets so whoever reads it can run to tell others.” Habakkuk 2:2

Very little is known about Habakkuk, yet God entrusted him with messages and thoughts that Habakkuk would write down in his private journal - which later became public.

This website is my clay tablet.  And just as Simon, a common farmer from Cyrene, was chosen to carry Jesus’ cross to Calvary (Luke 23:26 ), I pray that whoever hears the messages contained herein will run and tell others - and - all who hear will repent  and accept the call to Jesus Christ.

Through Gospel Musicand this Oklahoma based Common Man Ministry, we've been privileged to visit many churches of different denominations throughout Oklahoma, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, and Texas.  Over the years we’ve organized and participated in several Gospel Music concerts and fund raising events for worthy charitable causes.  However, we are no longer active in that phase of the business – we are currently concentrating on publishing the newsletter and small books proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
