Decision California Photos: Oxnard

By   •   May 24, 2018

Franklin Graham began the Decision America California Tour stop in Oxnard with a challenge: "We need the Christian voice to be heard in politics. We need Christians to come out and back those with Christian standards."
Jeremy Camp started things out with enthusiasm: "Raise a shout to let all the world know that Jesus saves."
With a forecast of the high 50s, these guys weren't taking a chance.
Oxnard is the 19th biggest city in California and home to about one-third of the state's strawberry production.
Franklin Graham delivered a message, centered around the story of King Belshazzar from Daniel 5. Franklin Graham's Festival house band, The Tommy Coomes Band, sang "Just As I Am" during the invitation, a standard at Billy Graham Crusades.
The message struck home to many.
And hundreds stood in response to Franklin Graham's invitation to accept Christ, many asking for follow-up materials.
A total attendance of 3,700 was announced and through three stops, 17,800 have attended the Decision America California Tour.
Jeremy Camp energized the thousands on the grounds of Oxnard's Beach Park.
Christians from many denominations came together to worship the one true God.
Excitement was not in short supply, even at the T-shirt table.
The 10-stop, 17-day Decision America California Tour rolls on to Bakersfield on Friday and Fresno on Memorial Day.

    Thank you Rev. Graham for coming to Oxnard, California. I just finished watching an interviewer with you on a news program. My “trust level” was totally enhanced! You covered the news about our President Trump and that we need more Christian leaders in politics. Thank you.

  9. Barry Driver says:

    California projects its influence onto the world’s economies and the United States. As lifetime a citizen of Cali, I must admit she is not humble and her pride will eventually be her downfall. The Gospel message, that Jesus Christ came down from heaven, born of a virgin, fully God and fully man, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for yours and my sins and raised Himself from the dead on the 3rd day is the only TRUE equalizer for the human race. In a world of spiritual plural, Jesus Christ points to Himself and says…Follow Me…rich, poor, strong, weak…come as you are, right NOW. He knows your name.
