NEWS RELEASE [UPDATED with C&MA lawsuit in which they lost in a jury trial in Glen Cove, New York]
DATE: MAY 20, 2011


CONTACT: PASTOR JOE SMAHA email: [email protected]



In still one more act of piracy by the Christian & Missionary Alliance, Bruce Terpstra, District Superintendent of the Metropolitan District of the C&MA, has filed a major lawsuit against Community Church of Paramus (CCP) on November 19, 2010 in the Superior Court of Bergen County, New Jersey, Case # C-390-10. This Draconian act, should Bruce Terpstra succeed, would leave the members and Spanish congregation which meets there church-homeless, and follows the same pattern and template of what the C&MA did to the Chinese Alliance church in Colorado Springs (reported in Christianity Today and Colorado Gazette), the Vietnamese Boat People Church in Long Beach, California, Reedsville Church in Pennsylvania, and Gospel Community Church in Glen Cove, NY clear back in 1995 [Jury Trial ruled against the C&MA...see report in the full report], rendering members as trespassers on their own property. And just like they did to the Chinese Alliance Church, C&MA leaders declared the Community Church of Paramus meetings invalid. As in the case of the Chinese Alliance Church, the CCP mortgage was paid for by the members of this local church. The C&MA leaders trashed and held in complete contempt the local church's constitution and bylaws, abused their spiritual authority, assassinated the character of its members, and threatened its pastor, Joseph Smaha, by yanking his credentials and declaring him guilty even BEFORE a fair ecclesiastical trial has taken place. Twelve years ago, Bruce Terpstra had falsely accused members of New Life C&MA affiliated church of intending to sue this church. He refused to repent when confronted for bearing false witness to these members or the congregation. A letter was written to Pastor Robert Tilli at Cornerstone C&MA Church, in Pompton Plains, New Jersey, when Bruce Terpstra was Senior Pastor there, informing him that the members had no intention of suing the church. But Terpstra still refused to repent. So it is ironic that now it is Terpstra who has really sued a church that had been in the C&MA. It is further ironic that Pastor Bob Tilli (now Senior Pastor at Cornerstone C&MA Church in New Jersey) gave a sermon (“Loose Lips Sink Ships”) which applies directly to Bruce Terpstra’s destabilizing a church in his own district with loose lips. Now contrast Bruce Terpstra's threat of force with God's people with Rev. Phil Roising's, statement, Senior Pastor of Longhill Chapel, one of Terptra’s flagship churches in his C&MA Metro District, quoting John Wesley:

“Never dream of forcing men into the ways of God. Think yourself, and let think. Use no constraint in matters of religion. Even those who are farthest out of the way never compel to come in by any other means than reason, truth…” SOURCE: http://longhillchapel.net/
