Charles Capps- a retired farmer, land developer, and Bible teacher who has traveled extensively throughout the United States and several foreign countries sharing the truths of God’s Word. He taught Bible seminars for over 35 years, emphasizing the authority of the believer, faith and the power of words.
Charles and Peggy both have their roots in the rich farmland of Lonoke County, Arkansas. Having been raised by parents who were farmers, Charles began farming cotton, soybeans, and rice immediately after graduating from high school and marrying in 1951.
Peggy, being 3 1/2 months older than Charles had to sign as the adult on his behalf when he wanted to begin flying lessons at the age of 17. They joined an organization known as the Flying Farmers and gained experience going to “fly-ins” and national meetings across the United States. Neither knew that this skill of flying would be such an asset later when Charles began teaching personal evangelism in the 1960’s. He spoke on the subject of soulwinning in churches not only in the US, but flew his twin engine Piper Comanche to the Bahamas to teach students of Youth With a Mission how to share Christ with others.
After reading a book by Kenneth E. Hagin entitled, “Authority of the Believer”, Charles and Peggy’s life took on a new dimension of travel and ministry as Charles became known for his teaching gift and insight on the subjects of faith and confession. Invitations to minister to the Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship International (FGBMFI) began to pour in, eventually leading to the publication of his teachings in book form. “The Tongue a Creative Force” and “God’s Creative Power(r) Will Work for You” became bestsellers after Buddy Harrison, Kenneth Hagin’s son in law, launched his publishing company with these two classics. These two books have sold millions (the God’s Creative Power(r) series has sold over 5 million copies) and are still much in demand today.
We celebrated Charles’ promotion to heaven at 5:15 pm Sunday, February 23, 2014. He informed the family and close friends on Friday that he would be going home to heaven in 3 days. After having some final words with family and friends on Saturday, he went to bed, went to sleep and never awoke. (He kept saying, “I want to go in my sleep.”) Charles Capps was a man of integrity, a man of his word and he got what he said. He called those things that be not as though they were.
