Founder, The Conversion Center, Inc. – 1952

God saved me at the age of  25, September, 1939, as I turned from works, merits, sacraments, sacramentals, and trusted totally in the finished once for all blood sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross for me, never to be repeated, continued, renewed, or reapplied. Mrs. Florence Cassebaum, a neighbor, invited us to attend evangelistic meetings at a Fundamental Church, Grace Chapel, Havertown, Pa. I had been confirmed in the Episcopal Church of the Redemption, Philadelphia, by Bishop Hart, at the age of 12.          Later, I completed the correspondence course in doctrine given by the Roman Catholic Knights of Columbus. The night of my conversion, I saw from the Bible the errors of ritualism, formalism, godfathers, infant baptism, dependence upon systems and organizations, whether religious or fraternal (John 1:12). I saw that Biblical conversion results in a change of life. “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new” (2 Corinthians 5:17).           The smoking, social drinking, dancing, Hollywood movies, and other interests incompatible with the Word of God and the new life in Christ vanished away.           The new life brought new desires, new associations, a love for God’s Word. I attended the Philadelphia School of the Bible (now Philadelphia College of Bible), was Biblically baptized, united with Grace Chapel, and have been there ever since, serving awhile as Moderator, and for 16 years as Chairman of the Grace Chapel Missionary Society, giving towards the support of about 140 missionaries around $125,000 annually.           The Lord led into fulltime service and the formation of The Conversion Center, a home and foreign mission to reach Roman Catholics and “whosoever will” with the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ, as contrasted with the false gospel and false Christs of Romanism, Mormonism, Jehovah’s Witnessism, Communism, Christian Scientism, etc. For testimonies of conversions, and other literature write to P.
