Who We Are
Rev. Joseph and Emma Caetta
This website is a continuance of the ministry begun by my grandparents and is dedicated to my grandparents, Rev. Joseph and Emma Caetta, for the furthering of the gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the world. They were the founders of the First Assembly of God in Parkersburg, WV 26101 USA.
My mother and I are the authors of this website. We are not preachers, and we are not prophets. We only desire to share the gospel. My mother is the daughter of Reverend Joseph and Emma Caetta. I am the granddaughter. My mother is a Bible college graduate.
I have never had the opportunity to attend a Bible college but I have been through overwhelming life experiences. I must be on "God's training grounds" because I have been rejected by my father. Rejected by family. Rejected by men. Attacked by witches. Attacked by satanists. Attacked by CHURCH PEOPLE. I have never 'fit in' anywhere I have ever been. Almost everywhere I have ever been... workplace, church, or wherever... I have been harassed and made an outcast. I have been mistreated by men all of my life. The more kindness and accommodating I am the more they despise and use me. The last display of hatred will be the last because never ever again will any man be allowed in my company. Much pain, illness, loss, and sorrow (Ecclesiastes 1:18For in much wisdom [is] much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.Ecclesiastes 1 verse 18, Psalm 34:19MANY [are] the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.Psalm 34 verse 19). My grandfather was the only good man I ever knew. While he was living he watched over me and would try to protect me. I miss him very much.
And WHOSOEVER SHALL NOT RECEIVE YOU, nor hear you, when ye depart thence, shake off the dust under your feet for a TESTIMONY against them. Verily I say unto you, It shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. And they went out, and preached that men should REPENT. Mark 6:11-12 (also Matthew 10:14And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words, when ye depart out of that house or city, shake off the dust of your feet.Matthew 10 verse 14, Luke 9:5And WHOSOEVER WILL NOT RECEIVE YOU, when ye go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet for a TESTIMONY against them.Luke 9 verse 5)
BLESSED are ye, when men shall HATE you, and when they shall SEPARATE YOU from their company, and shall REPROACH you, and CAST OUT your name as EVIL, for the Son of man's sake. Luke 6:22
CHURCH PEOPLE (today's Pharisees) came against my grandparents in their day. They tried to destroy and stop the saving message of Jesus Christ from going out. They even arrested my grandfather once. They tried to rip apart my grandparents, and now the very same actions have been done unto me. Church people have belittled me, poisoned me, cursed me, and tore me apart continuously. They are hateful, jealous and devious people. Whatever little talents I may have they have stepped on every one. They seek to promote themselves which is so obnoxious. I find these people imitating me all the time which is very flattering. I am done with every counterfeit church goer. Mom and I both refuse to tolerate these people any more and life is so much better without these troublemakers.
It is my deep desire that people enjoy my company and love me but the Bible warns us to expect people to hate us and separate us from their company. This is a 'painful' blessing. All is well. It is a privilege, a high honor, to be counted amongst the minority to have been jailed, to be ostracized, and to suffer for Jesus' sake. There is not a living soul who has thrown me away who will ever again be in my company. I look forward to Heaven where my memory will be erased of all these hateful, cruel people. The people who do these antichrist acts are completely blind to how they are being used by Satan. They are counterfeit Christians.
My grandfather would be totally elated to see his sermons going out to the whole world. This technology was not available during the years he lived. I wish that I had his early sermons but he did not have the means to record anything until the early 70s, and even then the quality of the recordings was rather poor but I have attempted to remaster the tapes the best I can. My grandfather preached a lot about the last days, the false prophets too and so now, more than fifty years later, we see it all coming to pass.
A few times I have been asked about writing a book. My reply to that now is that people do not need another book. There are enough people writing books. People need to get alone with the Lord and get spiritual discernment. People need to begin a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and be guided by His wisdom and knowledge and not man's. But to the hurting people out there I can say this. I can probably relate. Being used, rejected, betrayed, abandoned, misunderstood, falsely accused... The mental, emotional and physical pain can be unbearable. God never gave me the desires of my heart. Even as a little girl I prayed only for the little things like love, family, relationships, never money, fame, or power like these false prophets-teachers are doing today, but yet God never even answered those little prayers for me. When I was not much more than a toddler Satan himself manifested physically in front me and attempted to physically harm me. I remember screaming and crying to my mother that this man in tall black boots and a scary face was trying to hurt me. The man appeared and then vanished. Satan has been on my tail trying to kill me ever since and he has used my weaknesses to attack me (read Grace for every weakness) and he has used CHURCH PEOPLE to murder me. I have never had any "best life" on this earth but what little pleasure I had being able to take walks, or spend time with people who were not true friends anyway is now gone too. My life reminds me of the story of Job, or Noah and his family before they entered the ark, or Anne Frank while she was confined and imprisoned by servants of Satan because they felt superior to Anne. The loneliness of being disposed of as an obsolete is unbearably painful. Writing and maintaining this website is all I have left in life. If I cannot write, then I will die. The Bible says as Christians that we are 'in' this world, but we are not 'of' it
(John 17:14-21(verse 14) I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
(verse 15) I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil.
(verse 16) They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
(verse 17) Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.
(verse 18) As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
(verse 19) And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
(verse 20) Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;
(verse 21) That they all may be one; as thou, Father, [art] in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.John 17 verses 14-21, Romans 12:2And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.Romans 12 verse 2). Our time to leave this world is soon coming so keep looking up, expecting, and ready to see King Jesus break through those clouds.
But in all [things] approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses, In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;
By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned, By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left, By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and [yet] true;
As unknown, and [yet] well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed; As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and [yet] possessing all things. 2 Corinthians 6:4-10
IN MEMORY OF REVEREND JOSEPH CAETTA, 1908 - 1980
This website is dedicated to my grandfather, Giuseppe Caetta, who was known by many as the Reverend Joseph Caetta. Grandma and grandpa founded the First Assembly of God Church. Click on the website to get information about directions to the church, service times and upcoming events.
Please note: My grandfather founded this church over sixty years ago but we no longer have any connection with this church or any denomination. Pastors have come and gone here and we no longer know what doctrine they teach.

My grandfather grew up in New York City involved in the mafia until the day he met Jesus Christ, got saved and then God called him to preach. If you wish you may watch a ten minute tribute I made to my grandfather.
Mom and I have grandma's Bible. I found a handwritten paper that she taped next to Ephesians 4. Evidently grandma based her speech on Ephesians 4. This speech was evidently given to the congregation at the First Assembly of God in Parkersburg, and it reads,
Greetings to you all. It's good to be here again with brothers and sisters in Christ. Jesus said to love one another. (I do love all of you.) Life is much easier when we love others. Many of you have worked hard to have this church where it is now. Joe was proud of it and I know, you are too. Your ministers have done a wonderful job building this church. Scripture is being fulfilled so fast you can feel the nearness of His coming. I'm looking for Him. What a gread day that will be. This church is in our prayers. May God bless you all. Remember the joy of the Lord is your strength. -Emma Caetta (1914-1999)-
