30th Anniversary UBF Meeting to be Homecoming
In that this coming Unregistered Baptist Fellowship Meeting to be held at the Victory Baptist Church in Paducah, Kentucky marks the thirtieth anniversary of the unregistered church movement, we are asking all of the men that came and stood with us in the battle of Louisville and the subsequent prayer and fast conferences in April and again in October in Covington, Georgia, in 1984 to come and commemorate those historic events. Some that were there have already gone on to be with the Lord. Thankfully many are still on the battlefield for the Lord. We are happy to report that Dr. Everett Sileven Ramsey who the Lord used to begin this whole movement when he spent 187 days in the Plattsmouth Jail when he was the pastor of the Faith Baptist Church in Louisville, Nebraska because he refused to take a license for his Christian school. Seven church fathers spent 97 days in jail. Approximately 1,000 preachers from across America stood with the pastor and his people when the church was padlocked and over 100 were actually carried bodily from the church at 6 am on Oct. 18, 1982, when the church was padlocked by the authorities and the little church school was evicted to the streets. Those were halcyon days. Who will ever forget that day when hundreds of preachers and Christian laymen walked down the streets of Plattsmouth singing, There is Power in the Blood? I still have goose bumps just thinking about it. Also the day that we were having the prayer meeting in front of Sheriff Tesch’s office when the drunk driver on the bull dozer tried to run through and kill all of us.

Indianapolis Baptist Temple Wins Victory at PTABOA Today Sept. 5
We are happy to report that the Property Tax Appeals Board for Marion County, Indiana voted without a single nay vote to exempt E and F Realty, the owner of the property at 4002 East Southport Road, in Indianapolis, which is the lessee for the Life Center at Southport which the Indianapolis Baptist Temple uses for their church services. This is a massive victory for churches that rent their facilities in Marion County, especially since the Supreme Court of Indiana has ruled in an other case that each County can make their own decisions in these matters after ruling against an incorporated church in Hamilton County a few years ago.
