It is with deep sadness that I must report
that our beloved Bishop Robert Conley has
passed away; it was unexpected and a great
Robert and his wife, Tonya, were residing
in Parkersburg, West Virginia. Robert was
Presiding Bishop of The Society of the Cross,
a Christian Society within the Church Universal.
Bishop Robert and Tonya hosted our very first communion-wide CAC gathering and conference in the summer of 2006. A wonderful time was had by all, and Robert and Tonya were gracious hosts!
Robert was a very dedicated bishop who had a passion for the Gospel. During the time I knew him, we had become good friends; I will miss him terribly.
I ask that everyone keep Tonya and the children in your prayers.
This memorial page will be left here indefinitely as a tribute to our beloved Bishop Robert Conley, with whom we shall all be reunited someday!
God bless Robert, his family, and all the CAC family!
++Elder Michael Wrenn, Abp.
Martin lived in West Plains, MO, along with his wife, Tina, and their sons, Martin Lee and Jacob Alexzander. Martin had the distinction of being the first person ordained as a pastor in the CAC, and the first bishop consecrated by the CAC; this consecration occurred in Greenwood, MS, at the Salvation Army Church in the summer of 2004 and was presided over by Abp. Michael Wrenn and Abp. Rodney Rickard.
Martin was since elevated to the office of archbishop.
It is with great sadness that we say good-bye to Martin, but only temporarily, as we will see him and rejoice with him again someday.
The CAC warmly welcomes Jimmie Warren as
a newly-affiliated minister. In Jimmie's words:
"I am Evangelist/Pastor Jimmie W. Warren, the
founder of Simple Salvation which was inspired
by the Holy Spirit which lead me to start doing a
small TV Show on February 1994 in Spokane
Washington and is now a charter church.
This work is for all those who have had it with old time religion, and fear tactics. If you are tired of FALSE TEACHING and Non-Biblical truths; if you really want to be free in the LORD JESUS CHRIST, then this is one of the many places to come.I have been with many diverse churches along my path of searching for truth.
First I was baptized through my dear grandmother's Pentecostal church in Saint Louis, MO. in 1960 at age 13. Later, in Oct. 1962, I was baptized again, this time at the age of 16 in the CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST in Livermore, California.
Then the Lord lead me into the WORLD-WIDE CHURCH OF GOD in Oakland, Ca. Through the help of the Holy Spirit I received most of my biblical training and spokesman skills with the WORLD-WIDE CHURCH OF GOD from the years 1966-1976. After ten years with this church, I found a new calling in the search for GOD'S true WORD. I became a visiting minister to those who had left their different churches or who had lost their contact to God because of Religious ideological differences.
I BEGAN holding Bible studies in homes of those who wanted to meet and learn more of God's freedom. Later I helped those who felt lost and abandoned after leaving or being kicked out of their churches. You see GOD'S REAL CHURCH IS SPIRITUAL, NOT IN ANYONE'S BUILDING BUT IN YOU!
I was ordained through the Universal Life Church of Modesto, Ca. on October 4th 1999. I was given the title Evangelist in Nov. 2000. I quit the ULC because they recognize Pagans and Satan ministers the same as Christian ministers. The Holy Spirit had me start Simple Salvation Church of God which became a charter church Feb. 08, 2006.
We have 50 ordained ministers of Simple Salvation Church of God all around this country with 4 other independent chartered churches added as churches of God, sharing this calling.I also became a Chaplain with the United States Corps of Chaplains back in Nov. 22, 2005 to better serve my fellow man.
As Evangelist/Pastor/Chaplain/Bishop I humbly still teach that if you BELIEVE IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST, repent of your sins, and confess with your mouth that Jesus is your Lord and Master, YOU ARE SAVED BY GRACE! (THIS is a sign of your new life in Christ Jesus), and by Living by the Bible and acting like Christ YOU WILL BE FILLED by the Holy Spirit. This is being saved! Yes, You are saved when you accept Jesus and change your ways! This is all you need, the rest is pure religion."

Tom Cargill lives in England and has for many
years been called to reach those Christians who
have dropped out of churches for any reason.
He particularly calls Anglican Christians to join
our community if they no longer feel able to
support the way the Anglican communion has
gone. The many Christians who have been
shaken out of established churches is in the
thousands. He was called by God to reach these
and restore and rebuild their wrecked faith. He presented himself to the leadership of the Celtic Anabaptist Communion and invited them to recognize his calling. They did so and he came out of retirement to take up his ministry and anointing.
Tom now has a ministry called The New Celtic Church UK and Ireland. We welcome him warmly into the CAC family.
