Thank you to everyone who has commented. While I didn't know Bishop Williams personally, I did hear wonderful things about him. The magnificent church family he built is a testament to his vision, charisma and leadership. Let us keep his family and friends in prayer and pray that his spiritual seeds continue to grow.

I watched him teach from the bible on tv. RIP Bishop Williams! You will be missed by all.

I graduated Miami Central High School with him. rr

WOW!!! is what immediately struck me when I received the news of Bishop Williams' passing. What then followed was a calmness because w/out a shadow of a doubt Bishop made it "home". He was so full of life and a TRUE ambassador for our Lord. I had the awesome privilege of being a member of his dynamic church and encountering his kind, loving and witty spirit. He will definitely be missed beyond measure. However, he has obviosuly served his purpose and is now receiving his crown from The Father. We love you Dr. G and the rest of the family and will keep you in our hearts and prayers. RIP Bishop. Gone but never Forgotten.

Pastor Valarie Lomax

Bishop wIlliams will be truly missed by so many people he has left such a powerful legacy for many to follow. Our prayers will be with you Dr. Gloria and Rochelle and your congregation. God has not forgotten about you all, he will strengthen you for the days ahead. Pastor Calvin and Valarie Lomax

I loved Bishop Isaiah Williams. Although I did not visited the church, I watched him on TBN and was refreshed every time. I am saddened by his untimely death, but we know that he is now with out Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, AND we will see him again. To Dr. Gloria and family, continue to trust God, He is your balm of Gilead, your comforter and your peace. Keep looking to HIM. God Bless you all. Ingrid Allen

My prayers and love go out to the family of this awesome man of God. Truly he was a man of God. Once a member of Jesus People in Gainesville, Fl. It was truly evident that Bishop Williams lived the word of God and taught those that were under him to do the same. This ministry has truly left an awesome imprint in my spirit. Love you all and God bless!

Brenda Baker

I am sad to hear of the loss of a great man of God. But I am happy to know he is in Gods presence. I have seen him on TBN also and he did inspire me to change. He brought the word, the spirit and God's message across so powerfully. I beleive his legacy will live on and continue to inspire all those he's touched. I know my Pastor Casey Treat will have your family as well as myself in our prayers.

Pastors Gary and Josephine Montgomery

On behalf of our family, we would like to extend our condolescences. The most important memory of Bishop Isaiah Williams is the visit to our church by both he and his wife, Gloria. He stated that three people were experiencing back problems for many years. I was one of them. When he prayed there was an intense heat in my right sciatic nerve and then the pain was gone. I have never felt that pain again. After dealing with pain for many years, I was blessed that so humble a man, pastor and healer would pray for the many who stood. Please carry on his work, Gloria and know that we place our faith with your faith -- God is doing and will always do a mighty work through you and his legacy.

Bishop J. V. Porter

Bishop Williams was a Spiritual Leader extraordinaire. He empotized Spiritual Leadership..."Leadership is the ability to recognize the special abilities and limitations of others, combined withe the capacity to fit each one into the job where he will do his best." Bishop will be missed for so many contributions and his love for God and God's people. God's best to Dr. Gloria and JPM as you go through this very difficult times. This is the day that Bishop Williams lived for...living this life to live again!

Bro. Tony Richardson

Tears fall from my eyes for the homegoing of my spritual father but victory rings in my heart of my Bishop who is now with the Lord. I will forever miss him. His passing brings sorrow to me but the word of God that he has taught me to follow gives me peace, great joy and strength. I intend to keep pressing on to a high standard for myself in righteous living (as he taught me)in Jesus Christ.

Prayerfully, I encourage the immediate family,Church family, and the television family of Bishop Isaiah Williams. As a member of the television family, my heart was sadden upon hearing of Bishop's transition. The moment caused me to realize and celebrate the greatenss of God in how we are connected as one body in Christ Jesus. Bishop was an astute Disciple of Christ.

Candice James

Shocked to say the least when I heard the news. My prayers go out to Dr.Gloria,Richelle and jpmc members. I had the privilege of being saved, my daughter and god daughter christened at jpmc. I loved the beautiful spirit that pastor had. You will truly be missed. I guess we had you long enough and God was ready for you to carry on his works.


I also am shock to hear of the news....i've been a viewer of their teaching for a few years now and was sadden to hear the news after watching his episode this weekend, but as Dr. G reminds us that he is absent in body but present with the Lord....Thank You Father for sending this man to our our lives!!!.......Albert-Jeff City, MO
