My name is Nathan Fry, and I want to help your people lift up their eyes and look on the fields that are white already to harvest. Our ministry is Lens of the Harvest, and our calling from God is to help missionaries communicate their calling and the work that God is doing in the harvest through missionary videos. What we see with our eyes can make a lasting impression on our hearts. There are manifold stories of young men and women who have surrendered to missionary work after hearing a missionary’s presentation. When we truly lift up our eyes and look on the fields that are ready to harvest, our hearts will be convicted to be involved in God’s work.
It has been suggested that if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video must be worth a million. Video is a means by which one can almost be transported to the mission field to catch a glimpse of the harvest fields. As individuals see the need of the mission field and hear from the laborers of the work that is being accomplished, their hearts will be moved to pray, give, and go. Missionary videos are powerful.
“Mine eye affecteth mine heart…”
We believe that the work of God deserves our best. We strive to help missionaries tell their stories by using an effective narration paired with quality video footage. However, producing quality videos comes at a cost. Our heart’s desire is to be able to produce these missionary videos without passing off the entire cost to the missionaries. We are prayerfully asking God to provide churches that will partner with us financially on a monthly basis to be able to meet this need in missions.
We would be grateful for the opportunity to come to your church and present our ministry and calling to your people.
It is my pleasure to recommend Nathan Fry to you as a candidate for missionary support.
From the first time I met the Frys and heard their idea of how to help the missionary communicate their passion to reach the people God had called them to, I was sold on them and their burden! Since that time, having seen this ministry at work I have been moved, inspired, impassioned . . . it really does make a difference in the effectiveness of the missionary’s presentation.
Nathan is no doubt a skilled videographer. You will see that in his attention to detail. But his desire to work alongside the missionary and understand his heart is what makes these videos so special.
I am delighted that the Lord has worked it out for Memorial to be Nathan, Hannah and Grace’s home and sending church. They are a great joy and help to us here. They have proven that serving the Lord, loving His people, and helping missionaries to communicate the gospel are at the top of their list! I look forward to seeing what God is going to do through them and this vital ministry helping missionaries be the best they can be.
Would you please prayerfully consider allowing Nathan Fry to come to your church to present his ministry?
If you have any further questions about them, their character, their dedication, their preparation, or service, please feel free to give me a call.
He is Enough!
II Corinthians 12:9
Thank you for your interest in the Frys.
When I pastored in Alabama, I longed for missionaries whom God called. I wanted capable men with a strong work ethic, no matter their ministry’s calling.
As a pastor, I believe you desire the same qualifications in place with prospective missionaries. Nathan Fry meets these qualifications. Like you, every man of God has a ministry to which God calls them. Noah preached and built an ark. Nehemiah preached and built a wall. Paul preached and made tents.
Nathan Fry preaches and makes ministry videos for churches and missionaries. He helps missionaries clarify their message so your church members can really figure out a missionary’s calling and ministry. God called Nathan Fry to further the work of the Great Commission by serving churches and missionaries.
Our people deserve to hear and see a simple message from our pulpits and a missionary’s presentation. Nathan Fry will serve missionaries by clarifying their message to help them get to the field and see souls saved.
Will you consider having Brother Fry come to your church? Supporting one missionary puts the Gospel in one place. When you support Brother Fry, you are supporting one missionary to put the Gospel in many places.
Brother and Sister Fry have their sending church’s support, a full endorsement from our missions agency, and my personal recommendation to do this work.
Yours for the harvest,
We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the verbal and plenary inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible and God-breathed, and therefore are the final authority for faith and life. (II Peter 1:19-21; II Timothy 3:15-17)
The Masoretic Text of the Old Testament and the Received Text of the New Testament (Textus Receptus) are those texts of the original languages we accept and use.
Therefore, we believe the Word of God is preserved in the King James Version for English speaking people. The only approved Bible for use in English language settings by the missions agency and its missionaries is the King James Version.
We believe in the Triune God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that they are equal in every divine perfection, and they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption. (Deuteronomy 6:4,5; I Corinthians 8:6; Ephesians 4:6; I Timothy 1:17; Matthew 28:19; John 15:16,17,26)
God the Father:
We believe that He is the Spiritual Father of those who have been born again. (John 3:3; Ephesians 4:18; John 1:12; John 8:44)
God the Son:
We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Ghost and born of Mary, a virgin, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men; and that He is both the Son of God, and God the Son. (John 1:1, 2, 14; Luke 1:35)
God the Holy Spirit:
We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, equal with God the Father and God the Son, and of the same nature. It is He who convicts of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. He is the restrainer of the Evil One until God’s purpose is fulfilled. He bears witness to the truth of the Gospel, and is the Agent in the new birth, baptizing all true believers into the body of Christ. It is the privilege and duty of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit. (John 14:16,17; Matthew 28:19; Hebrews 9:14; John 14:26; Luke 1:35; II Thessalonians 2:7; Ephesians 5:18)
We believe the Genesis account of creation, and that it is to be accepted literally, not allegorically or figuratively; that man was created directly in God’s own image and after His own likeness; that man’s creation was not a matter of evolution, or evolutionary changes of species, or development through interminable periods of time from lower to higher forms. (Genesis 1:1; Exodus 20:11; Acts 4:24; Colossians 1:16-17; Hebrews 11:3; John 1:3; Revelation 10:6; Romans 1:20; Acts 17:23-26; Jeremiah 10:12; Nehemiah 9:6; Genesis 1:11; Genesis 1:24)
We believe that man was created in the image and after the likeness of God, but by voluntary transgression fell from his sinless and happy estate; the consequence of which, all mankind are now sinners, not by constraint, but by choice; and therefore under the just condemnation of God, without defense or excuse. (Genesis 3:1-6, 24; Romans 5:12,19; Romans 3:10-19; Ephesians 2:1, 3; Galatians 3:22)
We believe that Satan was once holy and enjoyed heavenly honors, but through pride and ambition to be the Almighty, fell and drew after him a host of angels; that he is now the malignant prince of the power of the air and the unholy god of this world system. We hold him to be man’s great tempter, the enemy of God and Christ, the accuser of the saints, the author of all false religions, the chief power back of the present apostasy. He is the lord of the Antichrist, and the author of all the powers of darkness; destined, however, to final judgment of an eternal justice in hell, a place prepared for the Devil and his angels. (Isaiah 14:12-15; Ezekiel 28:14-17; Jude 6; I Thessalonians 3:5; 1 Peter 5:8; II Corinthians 11:13-15; II Thessalonians 2:3-11; Revelation 19:11, 16, 20)
We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace through the mediatorial offices of the Son of God; that Jesus Christ, by the appointment of the Father, freely took on Himself our nature, yet without sin, honored the divine Law by His personal obedience, and by His substitutionary death made a full and vicarious atonement for our sins. (Ephesians 2:8; Romans 3:24; John 3:16; Romans 3:25; I Peter 3:18-19; Hebrews 7:24)
Freeness of Salvation:
We believe in God’s electing grace, which is according to foreknowledge; that the blessing of salvation is made free to all by the Gospel. It is the immediate duty of all to accept, by faith, God’s offer of salvation. The only hindrance to salvation of any sinner is his own inherent depravity and present unbelief which, if continued in, merits the just condemnation of a Holy God. (I Thessalonians 1:4; Colossians 3:12; I Peter 1:2, Titus 1: 1; Romans 8:29, 30; John 3:18, 36)
We believe that the great Gospel blessing which Christ secures to such as believe in Him, is justification. Justification includes the pardon of sin and the gift of eternal life on the principles of righteousness. We believe that it is bestowed, not in consideration of any works of righteousness which we have done; but solely through faith in the Redeemer’s blood, His righteousness is imputed unto us. (Acts 13:39; Romans 8:1; Romans 5:1, 9; Titus 3:5-7; Romans 1:17; Romans 4:1-8; Romans 3:24; Ephesians 2:8-9)
We believe that God sanctifies (sets us apart), at the time of our personal acceptance of Christ as Lord and Saviour from the penalty of our sin. (Romans 5:8-9; I Corinthians 6:11; Ephesians 4:24) Secondly, we experience sanctification by degree as we yield to God and grow in wisdom, knowledge, experience and grace, therefore having power over sin. (II Corinthians 6:7; Psalm 119:9,11; II Corinthians 3:17,18) Thirdly, we believe that the believer is finally and gloriously set apart from the very presence of sin. (Philippians 1:6, 3:20, 21; I John 3:2)
Eternal Security and Assurance of Believers:
We believe that all the redeemed are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever. (John 6:37-40; John 10:27-30; Romans 8:1, 37-39; I Corinthians 1:4-8; I Peter 1:5; I John 2:19)
We believe that the saved should rejoice in a personal confidence of a present salvation which rests in the manifestation of the indwelling Christ and veracity of the Word of God. (I John 5:11-13)
We believe that the church of Christ is a congregation of believers associated by a covenant of faith and fellowship of the Gospel, observing the ordinances of Christ, and governed by His laws. We believe the true mission of the church is to follow the Great Commission: (Matthew 28:19-20)
We hold that the local Independent Fundamental Baptist church has the absolute right of congregational self-government, free from any interference of any hierarchy or individuals or organizations, and that the one and only Head is the Lord Jesus Christ. (Acts 2:41-42; I Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 1:22-23; Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 5:23-24)
We believe that, in conformity with the New Testament example of Acts 13, it is the function of the local church to authorize and send forth its own missionaries. Therefore, we believe the responsibilities are mutual. First, the church must send and maintain the needs of the missionaries. Second, the missionary is to evangelize and build the church.
We believe in the “blessed hope,” which is the personal, imminent, pre-tribulation and pre-millennial coming of the Lord Jesus Christ for His redeemed ones; and in His subsequent return to earth with His saints, to establish His Millennial Kingdom. (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; Zechariah l4:4-11; Revelation 19:11-16; Revelation 20:1-6; Revelation 3: 10)
We believe that Scriptural Baptism is by single immersion of born again Christians only. It is the outward sign of an inward belief. It identifies the convert with the Lord Jesus Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.
These Articles of Faith do not exhaust the extent of our faith. The Bible itself is the sole and final source of all that we believe. Please contact us for a more extensive Doctrinal Statement or if you have any questions.
