A young man who was born in not so known a village as an ordinary person from an ordinary background, when dedicated himself in the Godly things, was a memorable incident. In the path of faith and God s grace, God raised Paul as the founder of Ceylon Pentecostal Mission, whose name was Ramankutty as a teenager.

Ramankutty was born in the village of Engaddiyoor in the District of Thrissur, in a Hindu family. The wish of the parents was to make him a Priest, just like his grandfather. As his parents were poor, they could give education only upto the 3 rd standard, even though they wished to give him higher education. In the teens, the boy had to earn a livelihood. During those days, so many people used to go to Ceylon for work. He also tried to get a job like that at the age of fourteen. Asrappa, who was a rich Christian Doctor in Colombo, gave him a job. He was a Godly man who converted from Hindu religion and became a member of the C.M.S. church. He considered Ramankutty as his own son and let him to stay at his residence. So Ramankutty could learn much about Christian religion. The wife of Asrappa taught him Christian doctrines even though he hesitated to become a Christian. He rejected the gift , Bible, given by the Doctor one day. Still, they treated him with love. At the age of 18, Jesus gave him vision. So, henceforth, he meditated on Christ in his heart, secretly. Asrappa and his wife made him more enthusiastic.

At the age of 26, he again saw visions of Lord. Lord spoke to him: “ If you are shy about me, I will also be shy about you, when I come as a King”. He could not withstand this divine voice; real repentance came to him. He started to proclaim publicly that he has been saved through the faith in Christ. Asrappa and family were so happy with such a development. Very soon, Ramankutty became Paul after he took the Baptism of Knowledge by a Priest of the CMS church.

Ramankutty who came to SriLanka for livelihood, became very happy in the new life. When he remembered the Grace of God, he found enjoyment in testifying Lord. The parents commissioned few people to bring back Paul to their home, when they came to know the news that he converted to Christianity.

When he reached his native place by train, it was too late. He reached tat Kuruvilla Asan’ s house who was a Godly man, after walking past unfamiliar roads. The head of the house was not bold enough to receive him, when he informed him the purpose of the visit. When he returned with upset mind, he heard the sound of God, saying that , this is the house you have to stay tonight. Motivated by the Holy Spirit, he again reached the house and the head of the house permitted him to stay there. In the morning, he quit the house and when he reached his own house, he did not get a warm welcome. Even though the family members objected, he attended the worship at Salvation Army Church. Paul’s father, who was a fanatic, tried to kill him thrice. But, each time, God miraculously saved him.

One night Paul quit the house, when he understood that his father wanted to kill him. First he reached at the house of Kuruvilla Asan’s house, and then at the house of Asrappa in Sri Lanka. Paul told Asrappa that he wanted to become a Priest. So Asrappa sent him to the CMS Theological Seminary and his friends called him “Palupadesy”, after they saw the spiritual pungency and the quality of his behaviour. After successfully finishing his studies, he was appointed as an Evangelist of the Malayalam Mission at Colombo. In the meantime, Evangelist Paul married a girl, who belonged to an ancient Christian family. The marriage took place at Kuruvilla Ashan’s house. His wife was very co-operative and helpful in the field of Gospel work. God gave them five children afterwards.

He was disgusted by the spirituality which prevailed in the CMS church, where he was also a member. He was dissatisfied in his own spiritual work and he started thinking deeply about his weaknesses in his life. At last, he decided to stop his work and he informed the same to his classmate, P.I.Jacob, who was the Pastor in a Baptist Church.

The close relationship he had with Jacob helped him to understand about other doctrines in the Bible and also about the anointment of the Holy Spirit. During that time in Chennai, Jacob introduced him to certain Missionaries in the Pentecostal Church and he could attend their meetings. Evangelist Paul also showed much spirit to receive such experience. Missionaries came to Colombo as per the invitation given by Mr. Jacob and Evangelist Paul attended their meetings and studied more doctrinal truths. Soon he took baptism and was strengthened in the Holy Spirit. When he was filled with God’ s strength, he was enlightened. It was in the year 1921. After that, so many great revelations were given to him by God and his ego was tempered. The ardent attachment to and zeal for wordly things were lost. He decided to be a living sacrifice for Christ and was prepared for that. Approximately only for 3 years he continued as a worker in the CMS church after he had been anointed in the Holy Spirit. The members in the church who loved him became very sad when he bid farewell and departed. He decided to live only by faith and not getting a permanent income or salary. He and his family had to suffer financially, when he commenced the life of faith. Several times, the children had to face severe starvation. He conducted worship meetings and fellowship meetings in a house at Borells on rent at seven rupees per month. Afterwards he got a better house for forty rupees per month on rent. So many brothers and sisters joined him after they were induced and enticed by the life of faith of Paul. Like that, Paul’s spiritual family started to grow. Hence he was compelled to move to a house which costs Rs. 160/- per month. From hence, his house has been called “Faith Home”. It was the commencement of the movement of “Ceylon Pentecostal Mission”. The principle was to ask God for every need and receive it. To see that all human beings are without blame in Christ were the building houses of Faith Home, as per the word of God. The Ceylon Pentecostal Mission really commenced from this Faith Home which have the base of deep dedication.

In the year 1924, the fellowship of Paul came to be known as the Ceylon Pentecostal Mission. From the beginning onwards, the church took care to coax the life-style and in the dress code. The life-style of that man of God was to do every thing as per the will of God. He took care of those things in preaching, prayer and in conducting meetings . He did the commanded work of the Lord after following the footsteps of the First Apostles in the first centuries. Starvation and afflictions were part and parcel of his life. Still, he strengthened the churches in Ceylon and in other countries by faith , in spite of all such obstacles. In India, the church had an auspicious commencement of their spiritual work, when Pastor Paul visited Travancore, and conducted vigilant meetings at Thiruvanathapuram and places like Quilon. The first Faith Home in India had commenced its work at Thoothukkudy in the year 1923. In the year 1963, the church was registered in Chennai, in the name, Ceylon Pentacostal Mission . The Authorities are renewing the registration in the same name. which was registered in the year 1963. The church is still continuing in the same name and in the doctrine and faith which Pastor Paul has fixed.

Pastor Paul’s body became weak because of the continuous travel and restless administrations. After a meeting in Chennai, he was afflicted of body weaknesses, and spent the last moments with God. In 1945, July 4, he died and joined in his expected pivotal house. ie; Zion. After that, the church was led by his elder son Pastor Freddy Paul and then Pastor. A.C.Thomas became the leader and led the church to glory. After the demise of the Holy Apostles, it was administered by a leading committee, who had no divine vision and had no direction from God and the human plans were implemented by a group of advocates, and I.A.S. officers. The new leaders are continuing in the name as T.P.M., as per the Company’ s Act, who destroyed the revelation given by God to Pastor Paul, Pastor Freddy and Pastor A.C.Thomas. Pastor Jacob Ratna Singh, Pastor T.U.Thomas, Pastor C.K.Lassarus, Pastor T.U.Thomas, all led a life which was against the will of God and died. Now, Mr.Wilson, who is in Malaysia, a member of the T.P.M., is leading the church as per the Company’s Act. Vesly, who is from Kayamkulam and Mr. Joy Pich in Sri Lanka are now acting behind the scene. The Holy Spirit was brooding and hatching on the church to lead the church to the experience the church enjoyed in the beginning periods after Pastor A.C.Thomas. Because of that, certain developments took place in the year 1984 and now this church is working in Kerala, in different states of India, in foreign countries, which is in parallel to the doctrines and visions of the church and in the name of Ceylon Pentacostal Mission. The main responsibility lies in Pastor Chandy. The work, faith, holiness and doctrines which God has started, will abide till the second coming of Christ.

No one can spoil your life without your volition. It is Satan who does the spoiling and you have yielded to him. Please don’t blame any person (any denomination) for that matter.
I am not a TPM guy but i found they lead people more closer to God than any other organised christian group in India.
I would advise you to go to TPM only to see God.

When the name of the church was changed after much prayer, some men such as chandy and others revolted and committed rebellion.. if they did not have anything good to say about the saints of God such as Pas TU and other pastors, they could have kept quiet..Hope god has mercy on them. Pastor TU was a genuine saint of god, just like Pastor Jacob Ratna Singh, Pastor T.U.Thomas, Pastor C.K.Lassarus etc

The church & ministry God started by his Apostle Pas. Paul belongs to the Lord God himself & he is able to perfect & finish it according to his own will. In all his Apostles life & in his church till Pas. T.U. Thomas God did his perfect work according his will concerning Zion & New Jerusalem. Till today God is doing his work of Zion & New Jerusalem and leading his church in his perfect will by his present appointed Apostle Pas. Wilson F. Joseph which he is going to finish in his time. Very soon ! All the enemies of Zion are going to put to shame. Yes, the Devil & all who got deceived by him & used by him to deceive others by working & dare to talk against the Truth will be judged by the righteous Judge Jesus Christ. (Mat. 18 : 6).

Praise be to Lord..Please make no controversies with pastors saying one was good other one was not walking as per the will of god.. My name is Rahul, iam from a Hindu background.. but i say, It is God who has chosen his servants for his ministry and when god is appointing someone for a particular job, it means that person is worthy of that… If you too want to lead a perfect life like jesus, ask lord through prayers. Trust me, he answers all your prayers… First change yourself and make yourself capable that you have left all your bad ways/habits.. Now ask lord from Psalms… he will answer all your queries… God bless You All

Dear Reji Muthiraparambil,
Only solution is that now you go more closer to God rather going to Molamma again. Do not blame Molamma – Revert back to the golden days of ADAM and EVE then, the story was different.
Your intention and thinking while attending the Church was different and God answered your prayer and therefore, do not blame the church leaders.

For every word which you speak you have to give account to God.Many profane for self boosting and despise the true consecrated Apostals ,From the day of calling till death they were truthful to God How can acuse without reason ?As per Hebrews 1:1&2,by ages God raised many saints &Glorified His mighty work,like Past Paul,Smith wiggles worth,John Wesly,so on .The church which stands on truth will be caught up in rapture not the one finding faults on others.May God alone forgive you .

Proverbs 18: 1 says.. ” Through desire a man, having separated himself….”

what’s use of going behinds things/persons …. that too without knowing whether God will surely fulfill that particular desire of ours…?? As God will only do what is better for our Lifes…!!

we run behind it adamantly and then when our expectations Fails…. is there any point in Cursing God…?? or cursing people/Things what ever hurt us…??

rightly said….

Proverbs 19: 3 says…. “The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the LORD.”

Isn’t it better to keep hope on God …. by sharing our heart’s desires for any thing/ person we love/ ambitions….?? and let God either accomplish our desire or give us grace to wait for better things which he has planned for us…??

Psa 145: 16: Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.

Ecc 3 : 11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time

Second thing…. it’s a real wonder…. that the administration is being questioned…..??

Its a fact that …..NO CHURCH/ASSEMBLY can stand this long years without the leading of the Holy Ghost !!…..
So its definitely true and also know to all….That the Church is being administered as per the guidance of the Holy Spirit through different leaders in different times ,…
so is the Holy Spirit being questioned …?? …the word of God specifically says. …

Luke 12: 10… And whosoever shall speak a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but unto him that blasphemeth against the Holy Ghost it shall not be forgiven.

Matt 12: 31…Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men

Dear Readers,

Do you actually believe everything and anything some unsound person says…??You want to know the truth…, you should get it from the horses mouth itself not some unreliable source like this.

This church has been around for ages.It is the plan of God and the Lord is zealous concerning his church.The church is the bride of Christ and it is in his doctrines that it lives till now.

God called his servants to serve him.They are called ,faithful and chosen.It is unlike the way this writer thinks that any Tom ,Dick and Harry can serve God and do things his own way and get away with it.

Pls keep in mind it is not in anyone’s hand to judge any servant of God..The testimony of their lives and their glorious end speaks the truth itself.I guess this unsound writer barely knows the truth.

‘Those who touch the anointed or speak blasphemy against them is as good as touching the apple of my eye…it is written.

Maybe this writer wrote as he wished because he has no fear of God at all.Secondly he does not realize what a grave mistake he has committed..

Shame on you if you do not repent.

I dont blame all those people who from outside criticizes the pastors /ministerers/minstries but pray for forgiving their ignorance. one thing I know. when Jesus christ was in his ministry living on this earth, He did so many miracles and wonders. In one incident when Jesus raised up Lazarus from the dead, then the pharisees and scribes wanted to kill both Lazarus and Jesus because many jews believed on the Lord Jesus christ.
John 11:48 : If we let him thus alone, all men will believe on him: and the Romans shall come and take away both our place and nation. Here we see the pharisees and seducees were not concerned about the truth or about God but afraid of losing their honor, prestige and moreover their power and authority.

Now a days so many people from other denominations (such as marthoma, jacobites, catholics, CSI, are being saved and joining the pentecostal groups. Even in large numbers their priests are leaving the Aaronic priesthood. Most of them if you ask their testimony, they say God personally spoke to them and directed to obey the truth. Like in the time of Jesus, much greater fear is ensuing in the other churches. Other chruches even started adult baptism to woe their believers from leaving their church and following the truth.

DID ANYONE NOTICE : IN TPM. THERE IS NO OFFERTORY MONEY TAKEN IN THE CONVENTION OR AFTER ANY WORSHIP SERVICE BECAUSE WE LIVE BY FAITH.
