Pastor Bob Lindquist
Associate Pastor / Men's Ministry / Altar Team
Bob grew up in Rockford, IL within a Baptist church setting. At the age of 12, Bob was water baptized and at that time accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. He has four adult children: Abigail, Carly, Robby Jr, and Sydney.
In adulthood, although he was reading Scriptures and involved in churches, Bob’s own life didn’t seem to reflect what he believed the Bible was teaching about life on earth as a Believer in Christ. It appeared to him that there was more to being a child of God and having a life in Christ than he understood or grasped. After a series of events in his life, and recognizing that something was missing, Bob began to earnestly search for God’s truths. This searching was answered in 2016 in the form of an encounter with God and His agape love. This encounter baptized him in the Holy Spirit and shook him to the very center of his being.
The following day, Bob began sharing this encounter with others, including the love that he had felt that was unlike any human love he had ever experienced. The effects of that encounter with God changed Bob’s life forever and are continuing to change him to this day.
2 Corinthians 5:17 states: "Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
This Scripture became the truth of Bob’s life in a very real way and helped him to understand the grace and love of his heavenly Father, as well as the power and authority that come with a life in Christ. Bob lives to share this message with anyone that will listen.
