Letter from John MacArthur

From: John MacArthur

To Whom It May Concern:

Very seldom does a ministry come along that captures my heart like Mt. Nebo Prison Ministry. With all the groups in our world that label themselves “Christian,” Mt. Nebo is a breath of fresh air. The difference? A clear, non-compromising commitment to God’s Word. That’s what sets Mt. Nebo Prison Ministry apart. This ministry drives prisoners into the Word of God, and that’s something that is very dear to my heart. I have spent most of my life in a relentless pursuit of knowing what the Bible says. And for over 35 years I have dedicated myself to preaching the Bible and nothing else. So Mt. Nebo’s loyalty to the truth is something that has thrilled my heart from the first moment I met Chuck Holmes.

Audio of John MacArthur

In 1989, in a prison cell in Perryville Prison, a cellmate gave me a cassette tape with a sermon from Dr. John MacArthur.

Over the next two years, I listen to thousands of sermons and messages (many of them numerous times) and read every book he had ever written. I grew strong in my understanding of God’s Word and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  Pastor MacArthur became a ‘father-in-the-faith’ to me and a teacher during that time of my life.

I had no idea (in God’s providence) I would one day begin attending the Sheperd’s Conferences at Grace Community Church. Nor did I know, while listening to Pastor John MacArthur in prison that he would one day come to our home in Gilbert, Arizona and that I would get the opportunity to share with him in detail the impact he had (still having) on my life, family and ministry.


In this audio recording, John MacArthur describes his first meeting with Chuck Holmes, his reaction to his testimony, and his recommendation of the Mt. Nebo Prison Ministry.
