Consuming Fire Fellowship
Matthew 25:36 ...I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
"When I testify of Consuming Fire Fellowship, my first thought is summed up in the word, "discipline." Each of the brothers from C.F.F. has set an example of discipline. The word "discipline" comes from the word "disciple." Through C.F.F., much discipline has been taught to us here at W.C.C.F.. Sadly, each of us are here because we lacked respect for the laws of the land. No other ministry has taught on a Christian's obligation to respect the laws of the land and the disciplined life of Christianity more than C.F.F. prison ministry. We, the brothers in Christ here at W.C.C.F., had failed to see the importance of maintaining our witness by submitting to every institutionalized ordinance of man (Romans 13). However, Brother Britt was faithful to reveal God's standard for His disciples. So, I take this opportunity to thank God for opening the doors of W.C.C.F. and sending C.F.F. in to teach us "discipline," which has enhanced our walk with God as disciples of Christ."

"I've really enjoyed the service Consuming Fire Fellowship has put in for the Lord at this institution. I have a special place in my heart for the brothers who have come to share the gospel with us. During all of the Tuesday services there's always such a spirit of love, praise, and joy. When I first met Brother Britt Williams I knew something was very different about him, just being around him made me feel convicted! All of the ministers that have come with Brother Britt and Brother James have shown the same spirit of power and anointing. I wasn't very strong in the faith when I started attending their services but I always was aware of God's presence at all of them. Over a period of months I've had a number of wonderful opportunities to witness the power of God work through these men. Their witness has helped my faith to increase and I've grown in the Spirit. I thank the Lord for sending them to us. When I return home it will be mandatory for me that I visit Consuming Fire Fellowship and witness again the true love of God."
"God said in Mark 11:29 "Take my yoke upon you and LEARN of me..." Now, how can we learn of Him unless someone teach us (Romans 10:14)? It's hard enough outside of these prison walls to find God-like preaching - preaching that will convict, expose, correct, and exhort - imagine the cry of the true born-again believer who is incarcerated! Imagine looking for that which is real. Looking for that which is holy. Looking for that which is like God and only finding men with wicked philosophies, doctrines of devils, unholy testimonies, and who have less life than a DEAD MAN in a cemetery! The Bible says in Isaiah 10:27 "...and the YOKE shall be destroyed because of the anointing." The only way for the yoke to be destroyed is by the anointed ministry of those living holy, spirit-filled lives and who truly worship a holy God! I have found this "YOKE DESTROYING ANOINTING" in Consuming Fire Fellowship's prison ministry. It's not the men in this ministry that make the difference, but rather, it is the God of these men that makes the difference! God, through C.F.F., has opened my eyes to see God as He really is, HOLY. To see the standard Jesus has set for me, HOLINESS; and to know the only time I shouldn't walk in HOLINESS is NO TIME! I thank God for a ministry that was "sent" and not just "went." A good ministry, like C.F.F., will truly disciple and make painfully clear the cost involved in following Christ (Mark 8:34). Because of a ministry like C.F.F. I can really say, "I delight to do thy will, O my God: thy law is within my heart." Psalm 40:8 And, "Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every FALSE way." Psalm 119:104 Truly, following Jesus has made the difference."

"I must say, through the prison ministry of Consuming Fire Fellowship, my conscience and heart has been honestly opened to the teaching of the grace of God. Their teaching, instruction, and knowledge enlightened my understanding to the all-sufficiency of Christ (2 Cor. 12:9).
"...one day a man asked me, 'do you know Jesus?' I said, 'yes, He's in that Bible book,' he asked again, 'But do you KNOW Him?' and I said, 'I've heard of Him.' Then he said, 'well, that's a start, now come let me introduce you to Him!' And then he began to tell me the blessed story of Jesus who left the glory of heaven to come down to this wicked and corrupt world and become as one of us and paid the penalty with His blood to save a wretched sinner like me! He told me how Jesus loved me with a love unknown to man (what is called agape' love) and how He had a plan for my life. As he began to pray for me tears began to well up in my eyes and I began to feel a weight being lifted off of me! I began to sense and feel His presence come over me! Friend, let me tell you, there ain't nothing greater in this world than the feeling of being saved and having a personal, intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ!"
"I am a prisoner of the Lord Jesus Christ! I would like to thank God through my Lord Jesus Christ, for Consuming Fire Fellowship's prison ministry. The Lord, by His Spirit, has used them to produce boldness in my life."
"In a world where God's divine Word is sadly and sinfully watered-down to a few words and a set of man-made rules. It's a God-given blessing to have godly men who are willing to go against today's tradition and bring the truth of God's Word to a dying world. With all the false teachers delivering their web of fables and entangling the world in their lies of darkness, faithful, sin-hating, holy-living, Bible-preaching men of God are hard to find (and almost unheard of in prison). That's why I praise the Lord for Consuming Fire Fellowship's prison ministry. To hear the Word of God proclaimed, not with men's understanding but in the power of the Holy Ghost, has helped me find the God of the Bible and His will for me as His disciple. To know I can live holy gives me the hope needed to face the world. Knowing that God made holiness attainable, through the death of Jesus on the cross, takes away the fear of me having to do the impossible (in my own strength). Now I look forward to living a holy, happier life in Christ, free from sin!"
Jeremiah 23:16-18, 21-22 Thus saith the Lord of hosts, Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the Lord. 17They say still unto them that despise me, The Lord hath said, Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one that walketh after the imagination of his own heart, No evil shall come upon you. 18For who hath stood in the counsel of the Lord, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it....21I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied. 22But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way, and from the evil of their doings.
