Ministry Profile

David and Donna Carrico

FOLLOWERS OF JESUS CHRIST, Inc. was established in 1984 by David and Donna Carrico, with several areas of ministry. We often call ourselves Followers of Jesus Christ Ministries because we have so many different facets of ministry.  However, we recently became aware there is another ministry by that name.  We are not affiliated with them in any way.

We have been blessed with contacts in several countries and almost every one of the 50 states. We have ministered in several different denominations through Seminars, Short Wave, Christian, and Secular Radio, offer Resources of Literature, Tracts, Video, DVD, and Cassette tapes, and Personal ministry, and Cell group church materials. We have been guests on the 700 Club doing a 3 day program called “The New World Order and Secret Societies and also guests on Bro. John Thomas [DVD 2] (Channel 22 in Houston, Texas), along with numerous secular, Christian and Short Wave radio interviews.  We currently produce our own 24/7 FOJC Internet Radio.

Our counter-cult ministry is dedicated to exposing deeds of darkness and educating anyone interested about Bible Doctrines, Apologetics, Topical Bible Studies, Cults, Ritual Abuse, The Occult, False Religions, and Secret Societies such as Freemasonry. We offer many Books/booklets, Tracts, CDs, and DVDs and we are available for Ministry Services such as personal speaking engagements or radio/T. V. interviews on these topics.  Out of our 19 books/booklets; several of them research different aspects about Freemasonry such as THE EGYPTIAN -MASONIC-SATANIC CONNECTION, and THE OCCULT MEANING OF THE GREAT SEAL.  Donna has also written and 2 books, LORD IS THAT YOU? – A Garden of Memoirs and BlessingsWHILE YOU WAIT – Short Stories and Poems to Occupy Your Mind, and various other articles. Her testimony is now included in a book called, TRIALS AND TRIUMPHS, for sale on Amazon. We also have a chapter in a book called, THE DARK SIDE OF FREEMASONRY, published by Huntington House, compiled by Ed Decker. For more information about Freemasonry, we offer DVDs such as, SATANIC RITUAL ABUSE AND SECRET SOCIETIES, THE MASONIC CONCEPT OF GODand FREEMASONRY- SATAN’S WELLSPRING OF PAGANISM and other resources.

Several years ago we co-hosted the annual Ritual Abuse and Secret Societies Conference in St. Louis, Missouri.  Currently, we minister to survivors and care-givers by sharing testimonies, poems and our faith in the healing power of God.  Check out our healing workbook we call, FROM VICTIMS To VICTORS – THROUGH THE CROSS OF JESUS CHRIST- Gilead’s Balm – A Healing Workbook for Ministers, Victim- Survivors, And All Christians who want to be Free through Jesus Christ.

David is also on the board of EPHESIANS 5:11 and was an annual speaker at the Ministry to Masons Conferences. We are also affiliated with EX-MASONS FOR JESUS and other counter-cult ministries.

We have also done Street ministry and hospital, nursing home, and mental facilities visits.  Both of us have been guests on several TV, radio, and short wave programs, along with all of those areas in our own ministry.

We have worked both within the system of denominational churches, independent churches and our own ministry.  God has blessed us wherever we are and we have never left a group on bad terms.  God has truly called us to do a work for him and we follow His leading.  We have had various groups and currently we meet the 1st and 3rd Sunday evenings at 6 PM Central time.

Ministry Platform

And the LORD shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the Lord GOD shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south.

Zechariah 9:14 KJV

We feel that God has instructed us to use Isaiah 58 as our ministry platform.  We have much work to do for the Lord.

Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and show my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins. {2} Yet they seek me daily, and delight to know my ways, as a nation that did righteousness, and forsook not the ordinance of their God: they ask of me the ordinances of justice; they take delight in approaching to God. {3} Wherefore have we fasted, say they, and thou seest not? wherefore have we afflicted our soul, and thou takest no knowledge? Behold, in the day of your fast ye find pleasure, and exact all your labours. {4} Behold, ye fast for strife and debate, and to smite with the fist of wickedness: ye shall not fast as ye do this day, to make your voice to be heard on high. {5} Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the LORD? {6} Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? {7} Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh? {8} Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy rereward. {9} Then shalt thou call, and the LORD shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity; {10} And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day: {11} And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not. {12} And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in. {13} If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: {14} Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it.

Isaiah 58:1-14 KJV

Personal Information

Our ministry does not have a big denomination backing us. The Bible speaks of the “church” or ekklesia, a called out or a popular meeting according to the Strong’s Concordance. We believe that it does not have to take place in a church building. The people are the church, not the building! We have a time of praise and worship in our home regularly and offer Followers of Jesus Christ Bible study to others when we are not speaking out of town. Considering the issues we deal with, we do not fit in with most denominational churches. We also feel we are in the end-times when most denominational churches are in an apostate condition. We do believe there are sincere believers with in those walls who are being called out to be a part of the Remnant.

We want to encourage you to be obedient to the Lord. Read our materials, or listen to our CDs/DVDs and FOJC RADIO and our FOJC RADIO You Tube Channel.  Share with other Christians.  God will use you to help expose the unfruitful works of darkness (Ephesians 5:11), and help restore your Brothers and Sisters in Christ (Galatians 6:1).

Let us know what happens, and keep in touch. If you have any questions, please call or write. Praise the Lord!

Ministry Needs

Updated October 10th, 2018

Since our ministry began in 1984, we have never begged for money. We exist by love gifts for our resources and the blessings of our listeners. We appreciate any love gifts, no matter how much. We have normal ministry expenses such as web site, phone, paper products, ink, mailing and printing of resources, etc. However, we desperately need your help with these needs. Or, if you want to give a love gift of any of the ink cartridges below, that will help us by us not having to buy them.

We use several printers and are constantly in need of ink and toner. Here are the numbers for Office Depot, but there are other places you can purchase them. We have limited storage, so please keep this in mind when blessing us with our needs 🙂

  • Epson® 127, (T127120-S) DuraBrite® Ultra Extra-High-Capacity Black Ink Cartridge Item # 728199
  • Epson® 126, (T126520) DuraBrite® Ultra Tricolor Ink Cartridges, Pack Of 3 Item # 728172
  • HP 85A, Black Toner Cartridge (CE285A) Item # 231939
  • Multipurpose Paper

Other Needs

  • Someone who can transcribe audio lessons into printed lessons.  There is a program that does this somewhat, but needs quite a bit of editing.  I can help you to get started, but do not have time to devote to this.  There are several lessons that could be transcribed for the body of Christ.
  • Our computer system was donated to us, but we often need newer programs, paper, toner, etc.
  • We have never made money a criteria for anyone to get our materials, but as postage and producing materials cost is rising, that is getting harder and harder.  Any extra love gifts are much appreciated and we will continue to be able to do this.
  • We also minister to prisoners and any love gift towards that area will be used for that area when specified.
  • Battery back up system
  • Certain books (call and ask about our wish list)
  • Local Computer help.
  • We also are in need of prayer for our protection and doors to be opened for more speaking engagements.

Thank you again for your prayers and financial support in your love gifts that are greatly appreciated and much needed. We are now able to accept your love gifts by Credit Card.

We appreciate your love gifts for resource materials to the Followers of Jesus Christ. However, because of the recent clarification of the Federal 501 c(3) regulations, you will NOT be able to use your love gift to our organization as a charitable deduction on your taxes. We pray that you will not mind this inconvenience and that the resource materials you choose are well worth to you the love gift you give to this ministry.


Doctrinal Statement of Beliefs

We believe in the life and teachings of Jesus Christ as absolute truth and the supreme and final authority on all matters.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death.

John 8:51 KJV

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

John 14:6 KJV

I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.

Revelation 1:8 KJV

We believe in the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit.

This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. {7} For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. {8} And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. {9} If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son. {10} He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.{11} And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. {12} He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. {13} These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

1 John 5:6-13 KJV

We believe Salvation rests on faith in Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and Lord.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. {10} For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. {11} For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

Romans 10:9-11 KJV

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Acts 4:12 KJV

We believe in the Gifts of the Holy Spirit and the laying on of hands to receive Healing.

And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues. {29} Are all apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all workers of miracles? {30} Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret? {31} But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet show I unto you a more excellent way.

1 Corinthians 12:28-31 KJV

Follow after charity, and desire spiritual gifts, but rather that ye may prophesy.

1 Corinthians 14:1 KJV

Even so ye, forasmuch as ye are zealous of spiritual gifts, seek that ye may excel to the edifying of the church.

1 Corinthians 14:12 KJV

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:{15} 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. {16} Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

James 5:14-16 KJV

We believe in partaking in the Lord’s Supper and do so as often as possible.

And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.{25} After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. {26} For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord’s death till he come.

1 Corinthians 11:24-26 KJV

We believe in preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ, teaching disciples, helping the poor, when possible, distributing Christian literature, and providing a place for worship for people of like faith.

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. {16} He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Mark 16:15-16 KJV

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, {19} To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

Luke 4:18-19 KJV

For I was an hungered, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: {43} I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. {44} Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? {45} Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. {46} And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.

Matthew 25:42-46 KJV

And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: {25} Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

Hebrews 10:24-25 KJV

We believe and look forward to the “Parousia” or Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, {12} Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? {13} Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. {14} Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.

2 Peter 3:11-14 KJV

Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
