Dear Mr. Fish,

My name is Billy Ford and I have been a pastor (elder) at Bouquet Canyon Church for the last four years. I know that you deem virtually no one to be an authentic Christian so I won't waste time trying to prove anything to you about me or other leaders at my church.

I am writing to inform you that the information on your webpage about our church is false. Our church is no longer affiliated with the American Baptist denomination. Nearly three years ago (April, 2006) the members of our church voted unanimously in support of a split from them. Our reason for separating from the ABC boils down to the conviction that the denomination's leadership no longer respected Biblical authority. Without fear of God or respect for His Word a slide into error and perversion (including homosexuality) becomes inevitable. As the situation worsened, many churches stayed in the denomination for a time hoping to influence it for good and save it from the course it was on. When it became clear that there wasn't hope for a turn around, churches began pulling out. We are one of those churches.

I thought that you would at least like to have your facts straight.


Billy Ford
