Welcome to Our Newly Remodeled Website!

This website has been developed to help you understand the Word of God, the Holy Bible. We believe that the Word of God holds the keys to a peaceful, fruitful, joyful life. Jesus said that the "truth shall make you free." As you walk with Jesus and learn what the Word of God teaches you will find a new found freedom in your life.

Some of the teachings on this website may be unlike any you have ever heard. Let me encourage you to keep an open mind and also to search out what is being taught here to see if it lines up with the Bible or not. If you have problems with any of the lessons and don't agree. Send me scriptures and we can discuss your differences. Many of the lessons contained in this website will step on the toes of traditional Christianity. Jesus said that the "tradition of man makes the commandment of God of no effect." It is time to get rid of tradition and believe what the Word of God really says!

Who Are We?

Foundations of Faith's web site is owned and operated by Jay McMullan. Articles are written by Jay and others who have tremendous insight into the Word of God.

Jay's testimony:

I had always had an interest in spiritual things and my mother took us to church quite often as a child. My cousin and I used to play with her Ouija board and it would seem to respond rapidly when we used it. If you are not familiar with a Ouija board, it is a board approximately one and a half feet wide by two feet long. On the board are all the letters of the alphabet, the numbers zero through nine and the words, Yes and No. The fingers of the user, or in our case, users, are placed lightly on the sides of a heart shaped pointer that is approximately six inches long with a small round window with a sharp nail in the center. The Ouija is asked a question and the answer is given as the pointer moves across the board stopping briefly on the Yes or No, or by spelling out the answer with the letters and numbers. One day, as my cousin and I were playing with the Ouija board, the Ouija told us that it was time for it to go. We asked it why it had to go and it responded, "The keeper calls". Then we asked who the keeper was and the board spelled out, "Satan"! I knew that I had not moved the pointer and was certain that my cousin had not either. I was terrified and I have never played with a Ouija board since that day.

In the summer of 1974, I was working for my family's neighbor, driving a tractor on his farm. One morning, as we were leaving to go to work, the neighbor said something that startled me. "There is only one thing in this world that is free", he said. I had never thought about it as he began to explain God's simple plan of salvation. Toward the end of that summer, at twelve years old, I gave my life to the Lord at our small Baptist church. I tried very hard to live a Christian life but just wasn't able to live the way that I thought I should as a Christian.

On the day I turned 18, I started working for General Telephone and eventually moved to Perryton, Texas where I worked as a lineman and cable splicer. During that year, my older brother, David, was diagnosed with cancer. I was devastated by the news. The next few months proved to be trying times for my family. David and I talked frequently about the Lord and about death. We believed that God could heal if it was his will. The problem was that we didn't know what God's will was. One night as I was reading in the book of James a scripture popped out at me. "Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him." James 5:14,15. I was so excited about the possibility that God could heal and here was a promise telling me He would. I immediately called our pastor and asked him if he and the elders of the church would come and pray for my brother. The pastor's answer stunned me. He said, "Well, we don't believe that". I decided right then that if a church doesn't believe in their very own book, then they are not worth messing with.

After my brother passed away, I moved to Perryton, Texas. Each morning as I drove to work, the minister of a local church had a small spot on the radio. He seemed to have some good things to say. Not too long after that I began attending his church and found out that it was much different than the church I had grown up in. In that church was a young man who had been one of the biggest drug dealers in town. I had met him and knew that he was trouble. But when I went to church he was there and he was totally different. He was on fire for God and completely set free from the drugs. One afternoon, he came by my small apartment and convinced me to turn my life completely over to Christ once again. He began to tell me about something that I had never heard much about and that was the baptism in the Holy Spirit. I began to earnestly seek God and about two weeks later as I was driving east on 9th street and turning north on Main street in Perryton, the Lord Jesus Christ baptized me in the Holy Spirit! It was incredible. It was almost as if God took a spiritual blindfold off of my eyes. He began to speak to me and show me things in the spiritual realm that I would have never believed before. From that moment, the Word of God became alive to me. I felt the "power" that Jesus promised His followers in the book of Acts. "But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth." Acts 1:8

A couple of years later, God began to show me the calling on my life. He spoke to me and said, "Build foundations in the people's lives that they may be strong and stand and not fall". God eventually led me to Bible college in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. I graduated in 1986. At the age of 26 I began pastoring Faith Christian Fellowship of Lamar, Colorado and then pastored Living Water Church in Cuero, Texas. I also pastored Grace Fellowship in Friendswood, Texas for a very short period of time before moving to Salt Lake City, Utah. My wife and I now lead weekly Bible studies in our home.

I have seen God move in my life and in other's lives and believe in a God that cares for us and wants to meet our needs and fulfill our desires. The Word of God is our key to success in life. Faith can come by no other way than the Word. If there is any advice I can ever give that will be eternal, it is for you to get into the Word!
