Who am I? What Are My Beliefs?

Following many requests on the internet asking me who I was and what were my beliefs, I have created this page to respond to all inquiries ;

If you are a Christian, please bear in mind that this site has been designed primarily for non-believers.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry, although I was formerly a blasphemer, a persecutor, and an insolent man; but I obtained mercy because I did it ignorantly in unbelief. And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.

This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. 1 Timothy 1:12-15

I am an evangelist and Pastor-Missionary (Ephesians 4:11 He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers…). In early 2009 I founded the Allan Rich Ministries Welfare Society in India. I am an ordained pastor, and am responsible of 750 churches for 700 pastors and more than 75.000 believers. The work I do on the internet (videos, podcasts, testimonies etc.) involves myself only. I do not represent any church nor association, nor any movement of faith nor belief system of any kind. I do not receive any financial grants nor subsidies. I have created this site and all the videos by myself at my own expense. Any comments or replies to these comments on my videos (youtube, dailymotion, etc) concern myself personally, and myself alone.

The proceeds from the sale of books are re-invested in the publication of additional copies, publishing in other languages, as well as printing tracts for evangelization—making this a non-profit venture. A special postal account has been open to ensure  the transparency of the operation.

To this day, more than 10.000 copies of these books have been published in 12 languages, and more than 500,000 tracts have been printed in 7 languages.

History of the Ministry

I was converted in 1977. Two years later, I began preaching in the streets. For several years after that, I worked full-time for God, living by faith as a street evangelist and working in a Christian rehabilitation center for people in spiritual and social difficulties. Until the end of the 80’s I regularly shared my testimony in schools, universities and auditoriums, in an effort to discourage drug use and delinquent behavior. I also worked for 2 years in the gypsy mission “Vie et Lumiere”. Then came a period when I backslid, away from the will of God, but only for a season. After that I returned to serving the Lord in 2005 in obedience to the direction of the Holy Spirit. For several years now, I have been evangelizing on the internet and in the streets and been sharing my testimony in evangelistic conferences, doing deliverance seminars and impartation convention all over the world.

I am available to share my testimony at evangelistic conferences, drug use prevention seminars, as well as meetings exposing the dangers of the occult and witchcraft. 

Below is a summary of my Articles of Faith.  I BELIEVE:

       >The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men and the Divine and final authority for Christian faith and life.

        > In one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

      >That Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross, a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.

         >That the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and, during this age, to convict men, regenerate the believing sinner, and indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer for godly living and service.

        >That man was created in the image of God but fell into sin and is, therefore, lost, and only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and spiritual life be obtained.

     >That the shed blood of Jesus Christ and His Resurrection provide the only ground for justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and, thus become children of God.

        >That Jesus Christ is the Lord and Head of the Church and that every local church has the right, under Christ, to decide and govern its own affairs.

         >In the bodily resurrection of the dead; of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord; of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting conscious punishment.
