Fred R. Coulter Minister, Author and Publisher
With a ministry now spanning 44 years, Fred Coulter is on a God-inspired mission to preserve the truth of God for the next generation of faithful Christians. According to Coulter, secular-liberal, New Age-satanic forces are fast at work corrupting the fundamental truths of the Bible and destroying godly morality. Additionally, prominent atheists in America and the UK have mounted bitter assaults against God and the Bible. In fact, Christianity itself is experiencing rampant doctrinal confusion and heresy, resulting in the overthrow of bedrock moral values. Even the Scriptures themselves are no longer held as sacred, but have been thoroughly violated in the rush to produce so-called modern gender-neutral translations.
It is against this backdrop that Coulter has worked as minister, author and publisher to produce nine biblical books, an abundance of booklets and papers, 1600 audio sermons, and 400 video sermon--all designed to safeguard the true doctrines of Christ, as well as the Scriptures themselves. Recent publications include Occult Holidays or Gods Holy Days--Which?, now in its second edition. A much-needed resource for Bible students, this book contrasts the pagan holidays of nominal Christianity with the God-ordained holy days of the Bible. In July of 2008, Coulters work reached a personal milestone with the first printing of The Holy Bible In Its Original Order--A Faithful Version With Commentary. This new English translation is an easy-to-read rendering of the Old and New Testaments and is completely faithful to the original texts--including their original manuscript order.
Coulter has also developed in-depth Web sites for the purpose of preserving biblical truth (cbcg.org and biblicaltruthministries.org). Over a thousand audio sermons and Bible studies are available for download, including numerous sermon transcripts and biblical articles. Commentaries, histories and chronologies are also available.
Education Coulter graduated from San Mateo State College and attended the University of San Francisco before graduating from Ambassador University, Pasadena, CA, with a BA in Theology in 1964. Coulter completed advanced biblical and ministerial studies from 1972-75 under the Ambassador University Master s Program.
Translating the New Testament After completing formal instruction in NT Greek, Coulter continued to expand his knowledge of Greek for the next 20 years by undertaking a verse-by-verse study of the books of the New Testament using the Byzantine Text. In the course of his study, he was moved to translate the Gospel accounts into clear, easy-to-read English for contemporary reader--resulting in his first published work, A Harmony of the Gospels in Modern English (now in its third edition). Ultimately, Coulter was inspired to translate the entire New Testament. After twelve years of translating, The New Testament In Its Original Order--A Faithful Version With Commentary was completed and published in 2004.
Ministerial Career Ordained as a minister of Christ in 1965, Coulter has served as pastor of several Sabbath-keeping churches in the Pacific Northwest, the Mountain States, the Los Angeles area and the central coast area of California. Since 1983, Coulter has served as pastor of the Christian Biblical Church of God (CBCG), headquartered in Hollister, California (cbcg.org).
