During the 80s, the Lord burdened the heart of Billy Osigian to teach God’s Word.
In July of 1992, Billy and his wife Fran were thinking about moving anywhere between Louisiana and New Jersey. There were plenty of opportunities available to them but God had one region in mind, Western North Carolina. The Lord made their calling so clear that both Billy and Fran felt that not going to Asheville would have been in direct opposition to God.
Calvary Chapel Asheville was established in May of 1993.
God's vision is to win, build, and send. To win people over to the Lord through the sharing of the gospel message. To make disciples of them by building them up in the teaching of the word. For they are not born disciples they must be made disciples. They are then to follow the Lord's command and go share the gospel and make disciples. Through the studying of the word we learn to love God and love each other.
And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
"All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work."
