THE FIVE FOLD MINISTRY Joseph Coleman
On April 6, 1960, Brother Coleman was saved and three days later on April 9, 1960, was filled with the Holy Ghost. He became the full-time Pastor of the Local Christian Assembly in 1973. Brother Coleman came to the end-time message of Malachi 4 in early 1961.
He attended a prayer meeting at The Branham Tabernacle in late 1961 and was asked to testify. In his testimony, Brother Coleman stated, “In my heart I always wanted to see a man of God that baptized according to Acts 2:38, and had signs following.
And now I have found the place, and I have found the man”. From that day on Brother Coleman never deviated from his purpose and remained steadfast to the ministry and message of William Branham.
On December 30, 1962, while attending a service in Branham Tabernacle, the Holy Spirit spoke to Brother Coleman and said, “When you return back to NYC, start your church on January 6, 1963”, and thus the Local Christian Assembly began.
On July 7, 1963, Brother Branham ordained Brother Coleman when the following ordination prayer was prayed: 63-0707M
THE.INDICTMENT_JEFFERSONVILLE.IN Upon Brother Coleman we also lay our hands, as witnesses, Lord, to give sanction to his call that we, this church, this group of people, believe in him as a servant of Christ.
And we ask that You bless him and give him a great, mighty ministry, that he will win souls for You, Lord, and deliver the captive, and–and break the powers of Satan, around the lives of the people that he associates with.
Give to him, Lord, a fruitful life, good health, and strengths. And, too, when he comes to the end of the road, God, grant that he can look down a long trail and see where, by the grace of Jesus Christ, he’s been able to break every fetter of the enemy, to the honor of God.
Brother Coleman’s life and ministry have touched many generations of people all around the world. He truly loved, lived, and served the Lord with all his heart, soul, mind, and body.
