  1. I truly love each sermon I have heard from Dr. Stanley. He relates to you as if he knew exactly what is going on in your life and the solutions for them.

  2. I have listened to this man for 30 years. My mother was in a cult. It was my privilege to care for her in the last year’s of her life. I always brought her into the room where I listened to this ministry. She got saved. She couldn’t wait for Charles to come on. We always listened to two sermons.

  3. I’m a Christian confined to bed with severe arthritis. I look forward to watching Dr. Stanley each Sunday morning. He is truly a wonderful person. He is so obviously a true man of God. I love you Dr. Stanley♥️
