Famous quotes containing the word bakker:

    Why should I apologize because God throws in crystal chandeliers, mahogany floors, and the best construction in the world?
    —Jim Bakker (b. 1940)

    You don’t decide to build a church because you have money in the bank. You build because God says this is what I should do. Faith is the supplier of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.
    —Jim Bakker (b. 1940)
