Who are Jehovah's Witnesses?

From young ones, to the wise, Jehovah's witnesses of all ethnic groups worship together.

"We are basically normal people that are from many different backgrounds, and different situations in society, but we all come together for the purpose of worship," said Rodney Blanchard.

Faith followers say they believe in God Almighty, who they refer to as Jehovah. They also believe that the Bible is the sacred word of God.

"We believe in using the Bible as a guide book in life. We truly feel that it has principles and guide lines that should affect our daily living," said Blanchard.

Jehovah's Witnesses use several methods of teaching to spread the word. This "watchtower" publication is their main source. They use it to teach others about their faith.

"The primary work for Christians is to teach others all that we have been taught," says Lloyd Norris.

That method of spreading of the word is how many became a part of the faith. Steven Radobics began to study the religion more than 20 years ago.

 "I really wasn't of any faith. I kinda was a hippie. I hitch hiked across the united states and I learned about it in 1980 when one of the Jehovah's Witnesses knocked on my door," said Radobics.

Congregation leaders say their religion continues to grow and they pass on their message on to generation after generation and more and more people become members of their faith.
