Artur Pawlowski, the Pastor behind numerous marches for Jesus and Street Churches that have now been organized worldwide has been invited to speak at the Redeemed Christian Church of God Conference for Pastors and Leaders from around the world in which one of the speakers will also be Enoch Adeboye, the Chief Pastor of RCCG Church, a congregation of more than five million members. Warsaw Poland will be the host city of this International Conference and the event will take place from the 24th to the 26th of April of this current year.

Artur Pawlowski has been living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada for two decades since he immigrated from Poland and he is the Pastor and Founder of the now well known Street Church in the streets of Calgary, Alberta whose ministry has gained national attention, stirred controversy as well as emotional responses and unpleasant criticism from many because of his uncompromising Biblical beliefs in regards to the truth of homosexuality, abortion, divorce, corruption and his devotion to care for the homeless, situations that have landed him in 10 arrests and standings in over 100 court cases ranging from criminal to provincial courts of the Canadian legal system but despite the past 9 years of persecution by the government agencies, Mr. Pawlowski has never been criminally convicted.

Mr. Pawlowski has learned to sift, filter and continue with his message that challenges his listeners to reflect upon their own actions and their decisions about their own beliefs. This Pastor continues to insist that Christianity is not just a dead religion, but a lifestyle and his questioning and challenge to church goers is always the same proclaiming that being a Christian it's a new way of being clearly better than before in faith, word, but most importantly action, and not simply belonging to some denomination but being a lively and constant witness of Jesus Christ bearing in mind that the works of love and compassion towards others is what best speaks of our faith and brings the Kingdom of God to the people.

Artur Pawlowski throws towards the churchgoers a test of faith, and asks: "Do you really believe that God is all-powerful? Are your actions showing that you trust Him implicitly? Or are you maybe just a religious person, believing just for show even if you think differently? And by examining your life would we see Jesus or the Pharisee? Mr. Pawlowski urges believers to mature spiritually and to get out beyond the four walls of religion. He challenges everyone to take the opportunity to share the blessings with others so that they also can make a decision of faith and become part of the people of God. We as believers he claims, have the responsibility to serve, help, love and evangelize to others according to the great commission of Jesus to his disciples.

The Canadian Pastor believes that the Church is to be the guiding engine of change in every area of life regardless if it is education of future generations, politics or the media; he claims that it is God's people that should uphold the moral standards as high as possible not bending the knees to the pressures of political correctness and he shakes those who sit in their pews declaring: "If the light does not shine and continually is retreating, what remains? Do not expect justice from the kingdom of darkness! Those blinded men by evil do not know anything else for it is only the light and the transformation of a heart that brings dramatic change and freedom for good. We, the church are the ones responsible for the future of our country, our cities and our future generations and the question is but one: By seeing evil around us, are we stirred to do something about it?”

This way of preaching raises a lot of controversy among apathetic and religious people and all those who do not want to go out of the comfort zone of their buildings and of their pews (benches) and are moved to the marrow of the bone (ticked off) and many times during his sermons, "The Pharisees of today" as he himself calls them are so firmly confronted that they get up and exit the room without waiting for the ending, but if you have a crave to listen to a man who practices exactly what he preaches and preaches exactly what he does, then surely this is your opportunity!

You will leave the conference with new fire and fervour to bring sacrifice to the Kingdom of God to every place Jesus will take you and after accepting His challenge you will never settle for the illusion of peace that sitting on a church bench can give, for you will better understand the difference between true Christianity and dead Religion.

Some additional quotes from Artur Pawlowski sermons speak for themselves: "A Christian to the devil is to be a lion, not a hyena, he is to be the winner, who will never be satisfied in only the carrion (carcass) left by the enemy"

"Theologians of the Word of God can not enter the Kingdom of God merely because they possess a school diploma, they will enter the Kingdom of God when they become the doers of that Word"

“It's time to place our feet on the earth God has given us and take back the promises contained in His Word, we live in a time in which God appoints people with the anointing of Nehemiah, in one of their hands they hold masonry trowels, moral and spiritual rebuilding of the walls of the church that are to stand strong and stone by stone they rebuild what has been looted and destroyed by those who hate God and His people, and in the other hand these heroes of faith hold the sword ready to fight and defend that which was given to them as their inheritance from God the Father. Vigilant, steadfast and unwavering they stand in the gap, those are the true warriors in the army of the Lord and in truth and in spirit they declare the words of a certain song by Don Potter: "I have decided, I’m gonna make a stand I have decided, I’m taking back my land I have decided, thus far and no more I’m gonna take up my sword and fight in the name of the Lord!" This is how it is, the uncompromising, true church of Jesus Christ!”.

During this event, Artur Pawlowski will also invite listeners to actively participate in events such as Marches for Jesus or Street Churches that at the moment arise worldwide.

The dates of the conference are April 24th-26th from 8.00 to 12.00 and 18.00-23.00, and Saturday from 18.00-12.00.Location- Hotel Novotel, ul.1 August 1, Warsaw.

We invite you all for this unique conference in the name of Jesus Christ!

Eddie - Sore Neck - March 28, 2014.This hard working man had neck pain for a month. Look what he says Jesus does when I pray for him quickly...

Marcus - Sore Knees and Back Healed. I spent about an hour with Nick after praying for him. His heart was open to what I was preaching about Jesus. Even though it was very cold out he heard everything I had to say and really took it to heart.

Nick - Sore Back and Stomach Pain - March 30, 2014.Cycling & Lacrosse did some damage to this young man's body. He was healed in front of his friends. They heard about the Lord and then His power was demonstrated to back up the Gospel!

Rod - Sore Knee - March 28, 2014.Rod's sore knee is healed by Jesus. A really nice guy seeking Jesus. We had some discussion both before and after this.

On Friday night after a nice evening of serving the Lord at Street Church, some of us volunteers were having our usual prayer circle just before leaving for the evening.  I saw a man walk over from a ways off and ask us if he could join us in prayer.  He seemed quite depressed.

We brought him into the prayer circle and prayed for him.  He then went on to tell us that he was a heroin addict and was going to kill himself that night.  He asked me to take a knife from him (the one which he was going to use to commit suicide).  We went on to pray for this man and to explain to him his true value in the eyes of Jesus.

We explained that God loves him and has a plan for Him and that the devil wants nothing more than for him to take his own life (and why).  We urged him to seek Jesus with all his heart and commanded the lies and addictions to leave him.  He went on to tell us that we had just confirmed everything his own mother had been pleading with him about.  

Afterwards we realized that he had seen the back of Monty’s coat which shows that “Jesus Is Lord”.  While we were standing there the Lord used this jacket to call him over to us.  I know that this man walked away this evening with hope and much truth which, God willing, will be used to bring him into the Kingdom of God.  Please keep this precious man in your prayers.

Today at Street Church I ran into and spoke with many folks.  One young woman whom I spoke with was wearing a T-shirt with a large marijuana leaf on the front.

Being curious, I asked her if she liked marijuana.  She said no and I didn’t ask her any more about this subject.  I did go on to explain however how the enemy (Satan) uses drugs such as marijuana and alcohol, and the things of the world such as music and movies and television, to distract us from a relationship with God.

In fact, I told her that Satan the devil, the ruler of this world, really hates her guts and wishes to see her destroyed in hell.  I told her (and her friend who was starting to listen at this point) that the reason Satan hates her is because she is beautiful in the sight of God, created in His image, and that she has a created purpose to rule and reign with Christ for eternity.  But, I said to her, Satan will do everything within his power to prevent her from accepting Jesus Christ as her Lord and Saviour.

He wants nothing more but to see her sidetracked from her real created purpose and he will work tirelessly to deceive her into being destroyed in hell.

I went on to say that the price has been paid for her sins by Jesus on the cross.  In other words we are not condemned for our sins any longer, but if we choose to reject Jesus, the Son of God, the payment for our sins, then we are already condemned.

We have chosen our destiny.  This young woman heard me out for about 25 minutes and was so intrigued that she didn’t even look at her sandwich for this whole time.

When these young people hear the truth, perhaps for the first time in their lives, a spark is ignited within their hearts (Matt 13:8).  Perhaps for the first time they begin to grasp the concept of the Truth, that His name is Jesus, and that He is real and that He really does love them with a great and an eternal love.

High court upholds noise, traffic convictions for street preacher Artur Pawlowski PDF Print E-mail

The province’s top court has upheld convictions against street preacher Artur Pawlowski for using loudspeakers to amplify his sermons in a downtown-city park in 2006.

In upholding the Court of Queen’s Bench summary conviction appeal decision that had overturned a provincial court acquittal, the Alberta Court of Appeal said the city’s bylaw “is clear in its meaning and was understood by Mr. Pawlowski, who admitted to using amplification in a city park without a permit.”

Pawlowski was initially found not guilty relating to five violations of the city’s noise bylaws and two violations of provincial traffic safety legislation that occurred between April 13, 2007, and June 18, 2007.

However, the city appealed the decision and won, with the summary conviction appeal judge ruling that the “purpose of the bylaw, that parks remain safe and accessible for the enjoyment of Calgarians, was indeed pressing and essential.”

He concluded that the ban on amplification systems in parks was a practical method of controlling noise in the use of public parks, and is probably the most practical and effective way of doing so.

“With respect to proportionality, the appeal judge concluded that as Calgarians are entitled to a healthy environment which includes noise control in city parks, the beneficial effects of the bylaw outweigh its prejudicial effects,” said Court of Appeal justices Jean Cote, Peter Martin and Bruce McDonald.

Between 2005 and 2006, Pawlowski was initially granted several permits by the City of Calgary without prohibitions on the use of amplified sound. said the appellate court’s ruling. However, in the fall of 2006, the city started to receive noise complaints from members of the public who lived blocks away from the amplified sermons as well as others from across the Bow River.

That prompted the city to permit a conduct outreach at Triangle Park for all of 2007, but expressly prohibited the use of amplified sound.

The city informed Pawlowski that he could not longer use amplified sound and was going to revoke the 2007 permit. It was revoked on April 24, 2007, after which Pawlowski made no further applications because he said he was told they would not be granted. Then came the series of violations.

Defence lawyer Michael Bates argued that the summary conviction appeal judge erred in finding that the bylaw was a minimal impairment to his freedom of expression and that the beneficial effects of the bylaw outweighed its prejudicial effects.

City lawyer Ola Malik responded that Pawlowski knew and understood the permitting process, and relied on the proposition that courts must defer to municipalities in the choice and management of their regulatory process.

“We agree with the appeal judge that controlling noise and having peaceful use of the city’s parks is rationally connected to the objective of accessibility or enjoyment by the public,” said the appellate court.
