Why
FGBMFI?

"What answers does the church have for men - women too - facing the really horrendous complexities of modern business? People with tremendous responsibilities, where hundreds of jobs depend on the decisions they make. I've had men like that come to me, Demos, and frankly I couldn't even understand their questions. What do I know about labor contracts and price freezes? I've had no experience in business. "

"Sure, we clergy can give comfort and counsel to a man who's down and out, but what about the man who makes it? He needs God just as much, and ministers like me don't even know the language."

                           

                      - Dr. Charles Price, Evangelist

 (from The Happiest People on Earth by Demos Shakarian)

"Just think how many more businessmen there are in the world than preachers. If businessmen should ever start to spread the gospel..."

 

                - Demos Shakarian, Founder of FGBMFI

fgbmfi

is an organization where...

Full Gospel -

means no subject has to be avoided, whatever a person's experience - salvation, healing, deliverance - it can be shared, just as it happened; and

 

Business Men -

are laymen, ordinary people from all walks of life; and

 

Fellowship -

is what it feels like - A bunch of people who get together to share their love for Jesus; and where

 

International - 

means the whole world, all races, ages, backgrounds, and denominations.

STATEMENT OF FAITH

  1. We believe in one God, Maker of all things and being in the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

  2. We believe that the Son of God, Jesus Christ, became incarnate, was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.

  3. We believe the Bible, in its entirety, to be the inspired  Word of God and the only infallible rule of faith and conduct.

  4. We believe in the resurrection of the dead, the eternal happiness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost.

  5. We believe in personal salvation of believers through the shed blood of Christ.

  6. We believe in sanctification by the blood of Christ, in personal holiness of heart and life, and in separation from the world.

  7. We believe in divine healing, through faith, and that healing is included in the Atonement.

  8. We believe in the baptism in the Holy Ghost, accompanied by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance, (Acts 2:4) as distinct from the new birth, and in the nine gifts of the Spirit, listed in 1 Corinthians 12, as now available to believers.

  9. We believe in the Christian's hope - the imminent, personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  10. We believe in intensive world-evangelism and missionary work in accordance with the Great Commission, with signs following.

International Treasurer
Paul_Lai_Hawaii.jpg

Mr. Paul Lai
United States

Paul was born and raised in Taiwan. At the age of 26, he established a car company, specializing in luxury cars like Mercedes, BMW, and Ferrari. 10 years later, he immigrated to the U.S. and started another auto company. He was once the largest trader in the U.S. exporting cars to Taiwan and China, and he also had a real estate investment and development company.

In the 1990s, due to the recession and the real estate bubble, all the properties he owned disappeared and he lost everything. At the lowest point of his life, his wife led him to Jesus. In the year 2000, he was invited by the Los Angeles Chinese FGBMFI to share his testimony, how he changed from a proud person to a humble person by God, and how he started as a speaker and became a FGBMFI life time member.

After he turned his life to Jesus, God gave him a second chance, and he used what little cash he had at the time to reinvest in real estate, and grasped God's principles and blessings to achieve financial freedom in just a few years. He was elected as an outstanding overseas Chinese delegate, a board director of American Premier bank in Los Angeles, and the Arcadia Kiwanis Club president. He also began to serve in FGBMFI in various areas since 2005, was the president of the West District of the Los Angeles Chinese FGBMFI, an International Director and RVP of Asia appointed by Richard Shakarian, a USA national treasurer appointed by Mike Postlewait.

Paul and his wife Pauline live happily in Hawaii, and have been blessed with two beautiful daughters Patricia and Priscilla.
