The Publisher

Hello there, my name is Allen Stump. Greetings in the name of our sweet Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God. By the grace of God I pastor the Smyrna Seventh-day Sabbath Chapel located between Pineville and Welch, West Virginia.

Since giving my life to the Lord twenty-seven years ago, it has been the burden of my heart to have the faith of Jesus and keep the commandments of God as mentioned in Revelation 14:12 and to help others come to a saving knowledge of the plan of salvation. I have devoted my life to giving the gospel message and with those at Smyrna we are endeavoring to do this not only with the spoken word, but also through the printed page. The last few years God has blessed the Smyrna Church to set up a print shop and begin a publishing ministry.

History tells us of the great weapon against evil the printed page can be. Revelation 18:1 stated that John saw an "angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory." We believe that that message and glory will, to a great degree, be given by the printed page. Smyrna Gospel Ministries is currently publishing a variety of books, tracts, and newsletters in printed form, some of which are available in electronic form to read and download from this web site.

Our prayer for you is that it will be your earnest desire to love God, as Jesus said, with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. (See Mark 12:30.)
