Founder and Former Member of Satanic Church Converts to Christianity
The founder of a satanic church in Texas has converted to Christianity.
Jacob McKelvy, formerly known as Jacob No, was instrumental in bringing together a group of “Luciferians” to form a Luciferian church.
But on February 5, 2017, McKelvy and his wife renounced their ties with the Luciferian church, after becoming born-again Christians.
Parts of the sermon and McKelvy’s testimony were posted on a YouTube video.
“…(W)e were once covered in darkness and bound to each other in Luciferian covenant,” McKelvy said during a service at Spring First Church in Houston.
“We were mired in the shadows of the adversarial influence and knew no love outside of each other. Today I rebuke, denounce and break the satanic covenant by the blood of Jesus.”
McKelvy and his wife were both baptized at the end of the service.
In an exclusive interview with CBN News, McKelvy shared how he became involved with satanism.
He said he turned to the religion after his sister died of a snakebite.
“I was born and raised Mormon and so I understood what Jesus Christ was and what God was and if they took my sister away I was going to go to the dark side. There was a lot of hopelessness and feeling of powerlessness that drew me to this. When Luciferianism says that you are your own God, that’s pretty powerful,” he explained.
McKelvy’s story is one of grace, love, and deliverance.
On October 30, 2015, the Greater Church of Lucifer, founded by McKelvy, opened its doors to the public in Houston.
“It was a quest for power, McKelvy said.
“I wasn’t expecting the Greater Church of Lucifer to be as big as it was. It originally started in my garage.”
CBN News reported the story about the church’s opening in 2015.
Some Christians in the area protested against the church, but Pastor Robert Hogan of Spring First Church encouraged his church to pray instead of protest.
“I’m not going to be down there picketing,” Hogan told his church from the pulpit. “And could I tell you something: would you not go down there picketing? If you want to picket it, picket it on your knees,” he said.
