The Lonnie Files

An enhanced audio series

Prior to his death in 1993, Lonnie asked Roger Sachs, a close friend, to ghostwrite his life story. Together, they recorded hundreds of hours of audio and video testimonies to ensure that the stories of God's working would be preserved for generations to come. The Not by Might, Nor by Power book series is the personal, compelling result of their collaboration, covering the life of this powerful minister of the gospel. 

Now for the first time we present to you the powerful testimonies of Lonnie’s life told by the man himself.

The Books





Founded in 1982 by originator and director Roger Sachs, the organization has since grown significantly in both members and scope. But no matter the task, the mission of FC has always remained the same: to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ both locally and globally, doing so with the gifts, talents, and resources graciously available to us. Inviting people to experience and embrace the total love of God in Christ via a range of channels home to FC (be it print, video, missions, or local ministry) is our enduring passion and long-term goal.
