6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6). John Osteen passed from this life to Glory in January 1999. John Osteen never shied away from the truth of Jesus being the only way to salvation.
Dr. Osteen founded Lakewood Church in 1959 in Houston, Texas and developed Lakewood into a body of approximately 15,000 members with active ministries in televangelism, conferences, missionary support, and food distribution. He hosted the weekly John Osteen television program for 16 years, reaching millions in the U.S. and in many other countries with his preaching. On January 23, 1999 he died after a heart attack at the age of 77. His youngest son Joel Osteen later succeeded him as pastor. The congregation was started from scratch by the senior Osteen and his wife, Dodie. Since his passing, the weekly attendance has grown to more than 43,500.
John Osteen was a very knowledgeable and firm preacher of the gospel of Christ. His sermons consistently dealt with righteousness and sin, belief and unbelief, Heaven and Hell, Jesus and Satan, and the need for all people of the world to be born again in order for them to enter into Heaven. The sermon that is shown as a part of this post is the last one that Dr. Osteen preached before he died. All of the topics that are listed in this paragraph were parts of that sermon. It is amazing how the attendance of Lakewood Church has grown so much under the preaching of its current pastor.
