My name is Andrew Levesque. I am the Teaching/Lead Pastor (Elder) at City On A Hill Church in Brockville, Ontario, Canada. Here Is My Story (So you may be better acquainted with my history and progression of faith). I am 26 nearing 27, I grew up within the UPCI (United Pentecostal Church International), the largest Oneness (Modalist) Fundamentalist/ Legalistic Denomination in the world. I was raised as a fifth generation member. I went to one of their Bible Colleges and I was a licensed pastor within the denomination also. After witnessing terrible pastoral abuses, neglect and being the recipient of it for years myself throughout my training, I decided to leave that congregation with my wife, my parents soon followed. The board of elders for the province ignored our situation, admitted they fell short and were unwilling to bring any correction and healing because of who our previous pastor had powerful ties with. I was given their blessing to leave that particular congregation, God had plans to use this situation to pull me from the heretical denomination as a whole. A very good friend of mine and I had a three episode special with Apologia Studios(Cultish) on the subject, if you are interested in listening to us for a short while. I devoted myself to prayer and Scripture continually, with no external influences. I humbled myself as God removed pain and bitterness from my heart and replace it with Joy, Beauty and a Hunger for True Godliness. I searched the Scriptures daily and prayed for true Biblical Revelation. From that point onward I never again experienced Glossolalia and have not found any need to re-experience it again. My Friend Jeff reached out and asked me to explain the best I could what God was showing me through Scripture. He then lead me to R. C. Sproul, John MacArthur, Mark Dever, John Piper, and others. I became overflowing with Joy, because these wonderful men were explaining all that I was seeing and couldn't put into thought and words. I picked up a LBCF 1689, and it blew me away. I listened and currently it is still on going, to Doctrine and Devotions working through it. I began to study church history and the fathers of the faith. I began to go through things like the Diadache, Creeds and Confessions, Apostolic Creed, Nicene Councils etc. Finding beauty in things like Augustine's City of God and Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress. Things overlooked with privilege for many of you, that were kept from me as being false and heretical. All the while we were holding family devotions growing together. People started to attend our family house worship and we began to build a faith community together. WE decided to plant a church, which started as a Pentecostal-lite plant. Now, last Tuesday the affirmation of congregant members was solidified and congregationalism instituted and other things ratified, such as the LBCF being our confession as a church body at our first business meeting as a congregation. A couple of elders were submitted including myself and were ratified. (we are still quite small but saw the significance of having accountability even early on). Now we seek a faithful commitment to a larger body of believers in association (options are small in Canada, if you know of any please help). Here I am, grandson of a UPCI preacher, an Uncle who is a Pastor, my entire family that adhere to faith belonging to the UPCI. We are the black sheep of the family and definitely feel it now that we have solidified and proclaimed our beliefs publicly. I am A Reformed Confessional Baptist digging into the Puritans as of late. It is great to be here.
