Dear Dr. Cote, thank you for your ministry. You are such a blessing. My sons enjoy watching and listening to your teachings. my son Nathaniel said he can tell you really live what you believe and teach. You are a man of integrity and great character. Thank you for living for the Lord and showing and speaking of your genuine love for the Lord. It was a blessing to have you as my professor at Zion and it is a blessing to hear you in these teachings which I am enjoying sharing with others. Many blessings to you and your family. Looking forward to purchasing more of your teachings and books in the future. Thank you. Robin Smith

Dr. Gary Cote and his messages, sermons and classes have changed my life!
"Blind Bartimaeus Saw Mercy" sermon is an incredible message that has changed this man's heart forever.
The Holy Spirit classes are drops of holiness in the heart to whoever has ears to hear and heart that wants to know who the Holy Spirit is in one's life.
Thankful for KQI and Dr. Gary Cote for his "yes" to the Lord that has touched this heart and my life will forever be changed.
Emerald Medina 03/09/2020 - New Hampshire
I am so thankful for the fruit of Dr. Gary Cote’s yeses to the Lord. Because he said yes to the Lord in providing study materials, books, and sermons, I benefit today. I am product of the love and truth of Jesus Christ that was placed in all of his material and in his disciples. Before my husband and I ever attended Merrimack Valley Church, we were impacted by the truth in his sermons. When we eventually attended the church, which had then transitioned to his son being the pastor, I was confronted with my own pride, selfishness, high-mindedness, and fear through Wednesday night bible study, which used Dr. Cote's book of Acts workbook. That moment began the final steps of setting me free from pride and opening my eyes to the truth of who I really was without Christ (a wretch) and who I am called to be in Christ (a daughter, a servant). Dr. Cote's Holy Spirit sermon series was also integral to this transformation, for every day that I listened, seeds were being planted in my heart that guided me along to my breakthrough. The same day that God was showing me myself, I had listened to a Holy Spirit sermon where Dr. Cote spoke on the need for the love of Christ to reign in our hearts. I was confronted with my lack of love and the Holy Spirit directed me back to that message of Dr. Cote, and even further back to a Wednesday night bible study where the phrase “give me eyes to see” was prevalent. I prayed for eyes to see and God surely showed me myself and all that I had done. The seeds planted through all of the material of Dr. Cote led to me becoming a new creation, a new woman in Christ who walks in humility and the love of God in all faith and truth. A recent message from Hebrews class has impacted me, for it called about a desire to love and to be loved with the love of Christ. I receive that and confidently desire to walk that out the rest of my days, though not in my strength, but in Christ's. God has surely brought that love to pass in my life and in my marriage, and will continue that good work. The seeds planted from Dr. Cote’s material led to my new life, my husband’s new life, and our new marriage, which we re-dedicated to God! We have even decided to start at the beginning of our family studies by using Dr. Cote’s workbook on Genesis. We began it a week ago and only made it through 1 verse! What a difference new eyes make! Glory to God for his good work! With new eyes to see, we know that this study, and all of the studies, books, and sermons will be more readily and joyfully digested as the knowledge we have gained over the years, and the new lessons gained today have moved and continue to be moved from the head to the heart, and to personal and continual steps of faith. I am so thankful for Dr. Cote’s yeses, because they led to my big yes to the Lord! May you also be blessed and may the works of Dr. Cote, as he continues to faithfully be led by the Holy Spirit, also lead you to your own yes’s to the Lord, all of your days.
You have surely helped me more then words can express. I have an eternal gratitude for you. May God continue to bless you and to pour into you the material that can and does benefit so many souls. Emerald
Nate Medina 03/09/2020 - New Hampshire
I was born and raised in a Christian family and taken to church since I can recall. My journey has been a long one of a lot of struggles, victories, and failures. I have been in different churches and many places, and have always longed for a church full of healthy doctrine, full of the Spirit, and full of the love of God. With the years, I realized that it was a hard quest to find such a church. I have been disappointed many times and let alone to struggle with my failures by myself. Though I cannot deny that the Lord was always there for me, I kept feeling the need for the body of Christ, that family of faith. Not many people to follow after, not many people speaking the truth. Not many people living in according to the guidance of the Spirit of God. I knew the word of God, and I knew a lot of methods and formulas. I overcame so many things in the passed years, but regardless of my victories, I found myself dealing with the same temptations and with the same unanswered questions (and yes, I googled them).
One of my greatest struggles has been timidity. I identify myself as a shy person and came to believe that there was nothing that could be done to change that fact. And even though I knew the verse that says: “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” (2 Tim 1:7), that verse never became fully true in my life. Many fears were hidden under my life shield. Many fears that I could not recognize in myself, and no-one ever called them out to me. Then Listening to Dr. Gary Cote, the Lord opened my eyes and showed me who I truly was and what he was working on delivering me from. Since the first time I listened to Dr. Gary Cote, I realized that he was/is a man full of wisdom and sound doctrine, and full of the Spirit and authority of God. He makes me feel like if Paul of Tarsus is speaking to me. Why, you might ask? Same Spirit.
I love it. I found something I always wanted: Truth. Now I have about 4.5 months going to the church at Merrimack Valley Church. I am falling more and more in love with this family of faith. I have become a disciple of pastor Gary and pastor Adam Cote. Sermon after sermon, my soul is been fed by the word of God, I keep on learning and I keep on wanting more. It is no mere man words, it is not human wisdom that is satisfying my Spiritual needs. It is the word of Jesus preached boldly through people that dare to believe of God. The shy man I thought I always was going to be has been taken to the cross. This ministry has changed my life for good. My insecurities, my fears, my doubts, my lacks have all been cast out and at the feet of Jesus, one by one. I can honestly say that I look at myself in the mirror and I cannot recognize myself. So much clarity has been brought to my life, so much understanding. My wife was a woman of pride, has found love for humility. Me, a man that was constantly battling in my matrimony has found a deep and profound love and unity with my wife that only the work of the Holy Spirit can give through His grace and lovingkindness. I have learned to be a leader of my household. My knowledge of the Scriptures has become deeper as I now don’t just have head knowledge but also a changed heart, which is being aligned each day more and more with the truth of Jesus our Lord. I am a kingdom quest man with tangible example to follow, alongside people in my life that are ready to love and serve with humility and dedication. I know that the Lord has more for me and my family through this ministry, and I know that the Lord gave me the opportunity to find out about Gary Cote, because he wanted me to overcome so many things as I continue to apply myself to listen, to obey, and to follow, so that I can be a better and fit witness of the cross. I Thank God for the many yeses of Dr. Gary and for the people of Kingdom Quest. Because of those yeses, my life is being blessed in a way that can be defined with a simple word: Miracle.
Lauren M. Cote 01/21/2019 - New Hampshire
Just wanted to say thank you for the Holy Spirit Study. I am realizing, as I prepare to teach Keys For Kids each month to teach on the various attributes of the Lord, that if I cannot simply explain those attributes to the kiddoes, then truly I don't comprehend them myself. The "Conduct" videos in particular are helping me tremendously to gain understanding of His attributes and causing me to know Him better. He truly is wondrous. So thankful you took the time to teach on all of this and also preserve those teachings with future generations in mind. Thank you.
I needed to be confronted with truth desperately...I just listened to the power and presence of the Holy Spirit part one and that it was boldness that the disciples prayed for. Boldness to preach the truth to stand for truth...Thank you for standing for truth in my life! My life is fruit of your ministries. We are praying for you all always. We love you and I miss you all so deeply... I'm so thankful that we have eternity together.
With so much love from Sogakope,
Candice (email to Dr. Cote, Cara Cote, Adam Cote, Katie Cote)
Lisa Calabro 01/14/2019 - New Hampshire
This teaching is packed full of transforming Truth for every believer. I can truly possess and produce the character of the Holy Spirit? Hallelujah!!!!! Take me to the cross Lord where this dynamic life is found... only in You and only by Your Spirit. (Regarding Teaching #8-The Character of the Holy Spirit, Part 3, November 1, 2006 in The Holy Spirit Study Series).
Jennifer Smith 01/04/2019 - New Hampshire
Listening again to the Hebrews Study, and in the one I had on tonight you recounted that Holy Spirit appointed meeting in your office with you, when He asked you the question, “ Are you willing to trade in your kingdom for MINE?” Thank you Pastor for saying yes all those years back; like Abraham that did not see all that his yes would produce, your yes is a continual ripple effect day-in and day-out for so many. In Cara's and in your "Yes" many families in the world will be blessed. Blessings, deep respect, appreciation and love.
Heather Dunagin 01/03/2019 - New Hampshire
Praise The Lord! I’m looking forward to the new book, and will continue to pray for all that is going on...I love hearing about how The Lord is moving in Africa and in the southern chapter of MVC. So thankful...so blessed! Thank you again...I’m not the same because of your continued steadfast service in Christ! Love and Blessings!
Luke Underwood 12/30/2018 - New Hampshire
Hello Pastor. It is great to hear of what God has been doing with KQI, to see lovers of the truth and those who want the Lord in holiness gathering together in new places, met with the Lord’s blessing, coming alive with His love. I am glad to continue gleaning from your words through the newsletters. They have certainly been referenced and applied in conversation.
This year I had gone back though Finding Freedom at the Feet of Jesus and Threshold of Faith. I was stirred once again in remembrance of the first time these messages were brought forth. They truly ignite my passion to serve the Lord intimately with my eyes set upward upon the kingdom. Thank you for the great amount of work that has gone into these books. Truly your books are inspired by the Holy Spirit; and they are each unique, standing against the issues of the day, shedding light on spiritual matters, speaking the words that need to be spoken. Pastor, I look forward to your new book and whatever newsletters shall come forth. It brings me great joy to see them being translated, sent out, and received. We are blessed at MVC by the foundation that has been laid, and we are not ignorant of it. The Lord has been good to us and is still at work in our hearts and our lives as we continue on in this “adventure of courage.” We are expectant of still new and better things yet to come, building one stone upon another. To the praise of His glory, and with much love for you, Pastor,
Lesly Barnes 12/09/2018 - Pennsylvania
This is a life-giving message. Thank you for speaking the truth. I am grateful. I pray for all the best for you and Sister Cote and your family. God bless you all. (Regarding Newsletter The Donkey’s Freedom)
An Eternal Influence - Every Year that passes, the thankfulness grows, as the sowing of a Godly seed of influence, continues to bear fruit in my life. As we approach a New Year, and see the coming of our Lord drawing nearer, it is the influence of our shepherds here on earth that prepare us. I have been taught many things by my Pastor and wife Cara, but these three truths stand out, "Everything Unto the Lord," "Believe God," and always have praises for Jesus, the Name above all names, in my mouth. Your faithfulness to God's calling and beautiful example of God's love in your marriage is continually and so dramatically, influencing my own life and marriage. It is the Holy Spirit in you that has directed and changed my direction in this life. Because of your love and dedication to the Lord, the Face of Faith is being implanted in me, to withstand the storms, stand fast, and wait upon Him. I love you both for the love of God you have so freely given to me and to all. May the Lord bless you abundantly and expand your territory in 2019. With His Love

On behalf of the Faith Theological and Agricultural School students here in Ghana, I would like to say a very big thank you and God bless you to Pastor Gary H. Cote for the gift of these books (The Holy Spirit And The Spirit World). What a tremendous blessing to know this powerful book is now in the hands of our students!

Timely message. You must LOVE the NEW!!! Thank you Pastor Gary H. Cote for your faithful call to God's people to come into ALL the Lord has for us! (From the sermon: The Transition With Having New).
Adam Cote 10/31/2018 - New Hampshire
May we walk in the light of the Lord always...great sermon that has impacted my life numerous times since Pastor Cote preached it in 2005: sermon Day-Walker
I can testify that the foundation of love, faith, and truth, being applied by the Holy Spirit, through the ministries of MVC, when received with a willing heart through humility, will equip anyone to seek holiness, righteousness, and to run the race with endurance.
There is a cause!
Thank you Pastor Gary H. Cote, thank you Cara Hardy Cote, thank you Craig Smith, thank you Jennifer Smith, and thank you to all the teachers of our children. It is your faithfulness to the cause, that has equipped even me, to be sent out and used for the glory of our Lord. Giving thanks today for the planting of "Seeds of Faith" (Facebook Post 08/18/2017)
Thankful for My Pastor - When I needed a Pastor, the Holy Spirit brought me to Merrimack Valley Church, in Epsom N.H.
I needed a pastor who wouldn't comfort me in my waywardness. I needed a pastor who would prepare me for the kingdom of Heaven, a pastor who would prepare me to meet my King, a pastor who does not compromise the truth, who does not compromise, to be a people-pleaser, but teaches, preaches, confronts, corrects, and guides me in the concerns of the Holy Spirit. This is the love of God. I needed a pastor who would lead me to brokenness, to the foot of the cross, where I would die to myself, the same place where my Lord died for me. I needed a pastor who would introduce me to the Holy Spirit who lives in me, and teach me about Him and how to know Him. I needed a pastor who would show me that I must walk with God, and not apart from Him, a pastor who would show me that my salvation, is a life and death situation. I needed a pastor who would teach me to love the Lord and despise the ways of the world. I needed a pastor who would confront me when I started going my own way. I needed a pastor who would teach me to run the race of faith, to trust and obey, to have truth in the inward parts, to deny myself, to say yes to Him who called me, and to hate pride and live in humility. I needed a pastor who would instruct me to do, "Everything unto the Lord". I found my Pastor. Thank you Pastor Gary H. Cote. My new life in Christ is a precious gem, my greatest possession, because you lead me in truth. Truth can be harsh when the flesh is involved, but today I rejoice for your presence and position in my life. You still affect me with your teachings and godly wisdom even in Ghana. My Pastor for life. Even from 6000. "Scripture is the only place you can win your race by standing fast." - Pastor Gary H. Cote
Lisa Calabro 08/01/2018 - New Hampshire
So thankful for the day Christ Jesus set me free from myself!!! TRULY I am thankful for my REBIRTH day in Him and Him alone. This sermon by my Pastor Gary H. Cote powerfully declares what Christ has done in me. Thank you Lord for changing this woman's direction from death into LIFE! Christ Changes Your Direction
Luke Underwood 01/11/2018 - New Hampshire
This morning, I am thinking upon the humility of God, that Christ Jesus is Himself humble, even though He is high and lofty. I again started reading "Finding Freedom At The Feet of Jesus", and I am thankful that you have considered the importance of capturing this truth about God and how we approach Him. Thank you for serving God faithfully, with humility, and for encouraging it in the lives of those the Lord has placed under you. May I truly find freedom at His feet. I am blessed. Praise the Lord!

Kevin Jurovaty 04/11/2016 - New Hampshire
Thank You ... Dear Pastor Cote, I have been listening to your messages online, and just wanted to sincerely thank you for your dedication to the Lord and His truth. I love the Lord and have attended many of the Assemblies of God schools, but just recently God has really shown me that I had been living way to much in my flesh. Because of this He has stripped many things that I hold so dear, and I have stripped the rest away. I am starting your series on the Holy Spirit in an endeavor to truly learn, and grow in the area of being lead by Him. I am praying that in due time the Lord will give me back my dreams, but first I know I need to learn to live truly crucified to Him so the Spirit can become alive in me in a vibrant way. I just wanted to let you know that your work and your teachings, and your love for the Lord and His ways are influencing my life in a great way. Even though I have never met you, I am grateful for your discipleship. May God continue to bless you, your family, and your church. I do look forward to meeting you one day! Kevin Jurovaty

Yony Argueta 12/16/2015 - Massachusetts
“I became indifferent to the things of God. Even though I never stopped going to church, I was not involved in almost anything for a long time. My constant excuse was my children. I used to tell my pastor, I don’t have time, plus my kids are little. I am going to take a break. Now that I look back, it is frightening how we can become that indifferent to the things of God. Dr. Cote, this is very personal. This year has been a transformational year for me. I really praise the Lord, because of His unfailing love, and His great mercy. I really thought I was never going to become passionate for the things of God ever again. Listening to all the lectures about the Holy Spirit this semester has been a great blessing. I am active in ministry again. I am leading worship, I am teaching and discipling, and above all, I feel alive for God again. The same fire I felt 20 years ago when the Lord called, is coming back alive again. I am eternally grateful for this. Glory to God!” ... “Personally, this study was very enriching to me. I have been a Christian for many years, and I have never learned so much about the gifts of the Spirit, as I did through these eleven lectures.” (Gifts of the Holy Spirit Study) ... These serious of lectures really blessed me.” ( NPBC Directed Research paper—Baptism of the Holy Spirit)
Yony Argueta 10/21/2015 - Massachusetts
Dr. Cote ... I am just writing to inform you that i have been working on the course work. I have been listening to the teachings and doing the corresponding writings. Just so you know, the whole experience has been a blessing. It is my belief that you were giving those teachings once a month (please, correct me if i am wrong). The bottom line of what i am trying to say is that every time i sit down in front of my computer to watch the teachings and take notes, it really feels like i am there. I actually look forward to the next teaching, as i progress through them. In short, i just want you to be aware that i am working on the class, and that the content of the class is being a blessing to me. Blessings, Yony Argueta (Directed Research for Theology II)

Dear Dr Cote!
Greeting to you, your family and your church.
You have always been in my heart and my prayer.
Only the Most High God we worship, knows how grateful I'm to you and your family. I will live my life and work in the ministry only to know that I made it through Bible College because God connected me to you and your family.
Words cannot describe to you the amazing things God did this summer during our Mission Trip. When we speak of healing and the Demonstration of the power of God. I never knew that God had deposit so much inside of me to be released.
Many people take your class and said they loved it and never live it but this summer Andrew and I lived it to its fullness.
Putting me at the foot of the Cross and great dedication to prayer and holiness had helped me not dropping out of Bible College. You helped me put focus on God. This summer, I saw many of my former friends falling out from holiness with girls who once were close to me; then I knew that the work of the Holy Spirit was deepen in me. I'm not saying this in any prideful way but God saved me.
I cannot thank you and your church enough for providing for me and Andrew to go on this trip. Certainly the hundred of souls that were saved and healed, God will give you the reward as well.
Right now I'm living in Atlanta with my family, and praying to the Lord to make a way for me to come see you one of these days.
I pray that the Lord gives you a joyful semester. And please give my greeting to Beloved wife, sons Adam (family) and Stephen.
Dr Cote, could you please give your phone number.
Your son in the Lord, Felix (Kossi)
Candice (Bartlett) Adams 08/16/2015 - Ghana

Just wanted to say thank you for allowing my brother and my Dad to sit in on your class Thursday. We talked about it all weekend, especially as we visited unsaved family. Daniel quoted you a lot- I could tell he was really impacted, especially about what you said about fear.
Also, your "It Was Worth the Wait" teaching/sermon has really been helping me as I wait for the Lord to open the right door. Just wanted to let you know!

I greet you in the wonderful and precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It’s with great joy and happiness that I’m writing this note to express my greatest gratitude to you and your family for allowing God to use you to impact my life in the last year and half. Little did Joseph know that the man he met in the field while searching for his brothers will put him on the path to fulfill divine destiny, he could have gone back had he not met that man who gave him direction. I would have left this school a year and half ago, haven’t I met you and your son. Knowing how depressed and tormented I was, coming to Bible College on my own will so I could return back easily. But God sent you there at the right time and the right moment in Theology II, that class was one of its kinds, it changed my life. The first time I approached you, it took me courage but the Holy Spirit knew that I needed your help and He gave me that courage; when pride and arrogance could have killed me. Your son Adam was a tremendous blessing to come to the foot of the Cross and I did, it was a life changing moment. Your wife and your son Stephen are special blessing to me.
Dear Dr. Cote, words cannot express and speeches cannot convey my gratitude to you. You define my calling where I was confused, you gave my hope to believe and have faith in Jesus. What would I become and do for the kingdom of God is yet to be revealed but you and your family will certainly be part of my life as long I live on this earth by the special grace of God. Not only you had been a spiritual blessing to me but also physical, providing me financial support when most needed. The most important things I learned from you are “Everything God will do in a man is rooted in humility,” you are a man of strict discipline who go not by two ways to tell the biblical truth. Have I not put your advice into practice, only God knows where I will be today!
I pray that the Almighty God, the Ancient of Days and the Lion of the Tribe of Judah continue to bless you and your family. May the Lord release more of the overflow anointing and the wisdom of God upon you. May the anointing of divine acceleration be upon you and your family and your ministry. May the Lord show you favor as you showed me. May the Lord reveal His Ways to you; give you divine health and blessings as well to your church. May your church become the light of New Hampshire.
With the Love of Jesus Christ
Your beloved student

Good Morning Pastor,
I wanted to thank you for Sundays message. The Lord has been ministering to me about what his compassion looks like and I was very blessed by your message.
...Another example of that compassion coming forth. Such power.
Be encouraged today that the Lord is doing great things and my heart is a testimony of that. Thank you for your faithfulness and whatever you find your hands doing today I pray blessing.

SET YOUR MIND ON THINGS ABOVE!!!
We are blessed by an awesome God! He confronts, He corrects, He counsels, He helps, and He loves.
In Ghana we seldom have a sufficient signal to watch video but for a week now and tonight especially, we have the blessing and opportunity of feasting on the word of God delivered by our beloved Pastor Dr. Gary H. Cote. He brings a word in season. Our God! He restores!
Thank you Jesus for our Pastor and Your word of life and freedom!

As I was decorating my Christmas tree with Sophia i came across the sprig of wheat that Katie gave to all of us that sat around the table just about 1 year ago...I thought of Katie, I thought of you, and of course I thought of Ruth...So often too, I think of Joseph and all of the things that I learned about him and his life and his family from you...So much of the knowledge that you shared with me has been and is useful to me daily..i very much regret not being there and miss your counselling and teaching..I go back to my notes from your class and remember how I looked forward to seeing you on Monday mornings, but still hoped i didnt get called on..Last night I visited Kingdom quest international and watched a sermon and missed you all even more...I send to you and your entire family much thanks and love...Merry Christmas

I just want to thank the Lord God Almighty for the leading of the Holy Spirit in bringing me to your ministry. I've been so hungry for the word. Now since listening to your teachings and subscribing to your newsletter I'm actually studying and reading the word. It would strengthen me more in the word if I could listen to your live service but I'm in the UK. I'm part of the full gospel ministry and our teachings the same as yours, If there is a way to listen to your teachings on live broadcast would be a blessing for me. I've been listening to so many wonderful messages from your list. It brought me to repentance. I've let go of bitterness forgiven my...I want to be a true worshipper ...

Dear Dr Cote,
Thank you for your handwritten message dated 26th October, which I received on 31st October. I want you to know that you have helped me so much to go deeper in the spirit when I was going through a difficult time. I wanted to show God my appreciation of your anointing and felt led to sow a seed. It was the Lord that led me to your ministry. I love how the Holy Spirit goes into details and break things down. Please remember me in your prayers. I am always giving thanks to the Lord for your work in the Kingdom and zeal for our Lord and savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth. May Almighty God continue to bless and give you a deeper revelation of his love and mercy so we can be fed and pass it on to the needy.
God bless you
Patrick Massicotte 10/25/2014 - New Hampshire
In light of the recent appreciation for you both I would just like to say that I am extremely blessed to have you both as spiritual leaders in my life. Thank you Pastor for your consistent dedication to all that God has planned for you and your commitment to MVC. It means a lot to have an example to follow after since your example is to follow Christ. Truly, God has led me to you for a reason; to learn how to grow into a man that seeks the Lord's own heart despite the obstacles that come in my way - setting my mind on things above.
Also, thank you both for opening your home to me and many others so that I may learn how a family desiring God operates. I am looking forward to each day spent with the saints of God at this church and the many lessons to be learned. You are both held dear in my heart and I love you. Be strong and of good courage so that you may carry on with the will of God and magnify His name!
Rose Marie 12/10/2014 - New Hampshire

My Pastor for Life -
Thank you Pastor Gary. Eight years have passed since God sent me to you. It is under your guidance and instruction that I am being prepared to serve Him. Your faithfulness when I didn’t know faithfulness, kept me on the path. Your love for truth kept me seeking truth, when I didn’t know or have truth in my life. Your love for God demonstrates a love I didn’t know existed. Thank you for the loving example you and Cara set for me in your love for each other. Your commitment to prayer and the unceasing prayers you offer up for me are a treasure I hold dear. Even miles apart, your influence and teachings are still doing a work in me. I have said many times, that the day I walked up the granite steps of Merrimack Valley Church and entered in, my life was changed forever. Now, the impact you have on my life goes beyond walls and borders. Thank you for being my Godly role model, my teacher, and my pastor. Thank you to both you and Cara. You have made an indelible mark on my heart. I love you.

Happy Birthday to the man who taught me how to fish, how to throw a baseball, how to catch a football, how to wipe a table properly, how to water ski and snow ski--although snow skiing didn't have great results ;) , but most importantly the man who has prayed for me every day of my life, invests in my family, pours out his heart for Christ to all who know him, stands firm in the Savior's love, and who is passionately living his life for Jesus. Love you Dad. (FB 08/30/2014)

God has guided me to your alphabetically messages and teachings. There're so many blessed messages from each letter that my heart misses a beat, I've been brought to my knees.
Everything thing I've been praying for God has answered me, the teaching on gaining access to kings presence (Esther's plight) and giving up Egypt and Isaac etc ...God took off my mask pealed away the layers and humbled me to seek him with repentance.
The gold shield faith I cried my eyes out who can save a wretch like me! Then he spoke you asked seek and knocked and now the meat of the word you have been yearning for with understanding. I love when you say Almighty God he is Holy Sovereign. I realised how presumptuous I've been before this awakening.
I give thanks to Almighty God for the seed he has planted in you because it is bringing forth fruit in my life.

Dear brother Gary I want to let you know how mightily blessed I am with your teachings. For the first time in a long time I am truly being refreshed by the Holy Spirit. I prayed to the Lord for change and the Holy Spirit directed me to your website. ...Our lives have changed. I am now getting to know my Father in a deeper way. It nearly destroyed me but the Lord provided the grace for me to overcome daily. ...Also my son has given his heart to the Lord and has faith in God to protect him. He got saved in the book of Romans. My husband has given up his folly too and took early retirement from work to get away from co-worker. My daughters are also seeking the Lord in their quiet times. Miracles have taken place all our characters have been refined. Especially mine! I am broken and weak and rely total on Jesus now I praise him daily and love to listen to the word. This is partly due to your ministry. I give God all the Glory for the anointing on your life. I appreciate respect and honor all that Christ has done for me at Calvary...Thank you!

I have been so blessed by your teachings on the Holy Spirit. God has truly given you a gift to teach on a deep subject.Dear Brother Gary
I have been so blessed by your teachings on the Holy Spirit. God has truly given you a gift to teach on a deep subject.
I have been going through a Job like trial of my faith, to appoint I could have given up on my on my saviour. But my Heavenly Father through his Holy Spirit comforted me with the word to get me through this dark period with my family and marriage, especially my marriage and son,
I cried out to the The Lord to direct me to knowing. He pointed me me to your teaching on the holy spirit.
I am part of the full gospel ministry in the U.K.FGM. Your doctrine is very similar to ours so I was taken back when the Holy Spirit guided me to your message. He told me I need to go deep and know him a deeper way.
Thank you Dr Cote for your service in Christ Jesus. For being sincere and honest in obedience to the teaching of the full gospel, the glory your giving to the father without wanting fame is so refreshing. God bless you in Jesus name in all your endeavours.
Gail Sapp Parmentier 07/03/2014 - Rhode Island
And a great father he is! What a legacy he has left.

Jennifer Smith 03/17/2014 - New Hampshire
Pastor, Thank you for your simple words of encouragement to me tonight. It is funny how you brought up that Cara went in and did great and with no degree. That is the most often asked question I have been asked at the school by the teachers- Do I have a degree. No, I do not posses a paper that would satisfy state qualifications, but I know that the Lord is the One who has been, and will continue to equip me for whatever position I am placed in. I am to simply be that woman of God He is making me into, and allow the giftedness He has given me to come forth. Thank you for being a TRUE Pastor, and NOT a pacifier……..Blessings, Jenn

"Our day is saturated with deception, delusions, decadence and disobedience." This newsletter by Dr. Gary H. Cote is intended for those who desire to come out of those "d" words, and into the truthfulness of God. This is truly an opportunity to grow and mature by way of "advising, informing, instructing, correcting, warning, and calling all to live a life of repentance as wholly devoted followers of Jesus Christ."
Do you desire to know the things of God more? To come out of the 'lukewarm' church life and into all God has for you? To understand the hypocrisy and immorality of the day? To realize the true heart of man and the need for a Savior?
About 4 years ago I answered 'yes' to these questions, and wanted more for my life. I was hungry for truth, to understand the "why's" of life, and to live rightly according the God's standards. I just didn’t know how. I have had the opportunity to be taught by this man, not only as a Pastor, but as my Dad. The Lord has imparted much wisdom to him, and has used him to teach me those things. Because of the truths I have learned, I have become the woman I always wanted to be, free of the bondage of insecurities and fears, and living for God.
If you are serious about the things of God and desire for the Truth to be Known in your life too I encourage you to subscribe to this newsletter by opening this link, reading through Dr. Cote's message, and clicking "subscribe".
I know for myself, my family, and many faithful followers that I know, this is worth it.

Back in February of 2007, one late Saturday evening I was in my office at home, studying at my desk. Suddenly the presence of the LORD's Spirit entered the room and speaking to my spirit, He called me into service. I immediately fell prostrate to the floor and said "Yes LORD". I was so excited because the next morning I would be in church and could tell my Pastor! Well, the next morning still excited, I went to church. When I arrived, a member mentioned to me that I "looked different" today. I said, "Something is different. I have to talk to Pastor Gary H. Cote about it." The service began and Pastor was very ill. But nonetheless, he led us through an amazing service and message. When he delivered the final word and prayer to close the service, he collapsed into a front row chair, pale and sweating profusely. Many of us gathered around him and prayed for him to receive healing. When we finished, I knelt in front of him to tell him what the LORD did the night before. I said, Pastor, "Something great happened to me last night. The LORD called me into service!" In my pride, I expected him to get up and announce it to the church! Instead, even in weakness, but with the wisdom God gave him, he said this to me, "Everything unto God." I thought... "That's it?" I thanked him and as I walked away, I realized the Holy Spirit again spoke to me through Pastor. And so my journey began. It has been and is a bumpy road. There are many hard and necessary lessons to learn on this path. But, God's word says, "The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD, and He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; the LORD upholds him with His hand." - Psalm 37:23-24. It's not an easy road, but it's worth it. My "Facebook Profile" as portrayed in this post is part of the "everything" Pastor said to me that day. Thank you Pastor Gary for uttering those three powerful words of instruction to me; and for your faithfulness to God.
Adam Harrison 11/20/2013 - Virginia
Good Morning Dad Hope all is well, I came across this Bible verse, and it made me think of you. I wish I had come across it earlier, not that I had eyes to understand it, but it would have been nice to look back on.
"Let the godly strike me! It will be a kindness! If they correct me, it is soothing medicine. Don't let me refuse it." Psalms 141:5
You have been saying this same thing for years and I never had ears to hear with. For years when something bad happened I would ask God why he did not protect me as he protected Daniel, only recently am I seeing the pride in such a thought for I am not righteous, and Daniel was. My predicaments, which were often self inflicted, should have been seen as opportunities to be poured out and then filled with him. Unfortunately my resistance to change caused these times to become a stumbling block,
and there I stood for years. I am excited for the new man to come forth, hope you have a nice day.

Blessings Pastor Cote,
Thank you for the email. I also want to take the opportunity to let you know that I strongly appreciate the commitment and effort you put every week in pouring the life of Christ into the students. I know that what we are receiving in class is a treasure from the same heart of God, and it is my prayer not to neglect or treat that treasure of His Word, Life, Character and Concerns as something common. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your genuineness and willingness to pour out the life of Christ into many students such as myself.

Thank you for 'My Day is Coming". I just watched it for the first time. I was in Ghana last year when you preached this message.
For some it may have been a wake-up call, for some a grim reminder, but for me it is a promise. I look forward to that day, however it comes. There was a time when I couldn't and wouldn't say that but now I can. I can because you prepared me to look forward to my day. I am so thankful to God for you. You changed my life forever.
God bless you Pastor Gary,

Attending this service was an experience I will not soon forget.

I just listened to the above sermon...How wonderful to hear truth and to see that you are not among the thousands of whimpy pastors who are so afraid to speak the truth. I have 3 friends (we are all in our 60's) and we can not find a church that is not either "Emergent, Rick Warren" or false "Signs and Wonders". All the ... churches that I have been in are Emergent with the false teachings ... Truth is hard to come by but time is short. Do not get discouraged it is not in vain. I always remind myself that the LORD told us that what we are seeing now, would happen...All I can say is that God is good and His mercy endures forever. Shalom.

Such a powerful message that spoke directly to my spirit. When it all seems like so much, when I just don't know where to start, the answer... just start! In this, I have, and the Lord is 'taking my chaos and is turning it into confidence'... He is teaching me to have repentant spirituality, to be a woman of diligence, of faithfulness... He is taking my ashes and making them into something beautiful. Picking up one stick, and then another, and then another...
"Surrounded by land with no place to step, no where to go, a job seemingly insurmountable... my pastor simply started... "Picking up sticks, one at a time... and all of the sudden I had a little room" - Gary H. Cote
The Lord spoke so personally to my heart tonight, I plead with you all to listen to this message. Of all the message on KQI, I needed this one tonight, and what a personal God we serve - my pastor even called my name and spoke to what God was doing in my life at the time of this message. I needed that, I needed that reminder of how God sees me, the finished product. Thank you pastor for seeing me as God saw Gideon...

The Truth offends all lies. The darkness is offended by Light. God is offended with your sin. What sin has He made friends with? He calls for all of us to clean up and carry out the rubbish! He has supplied to us the doctrine of repentance--that we can call upon the Blood of Jesus, come into the throne room of grace and ask Him for forgiveness. --Dr Gary H. Cote , from Repentant Spirituality, 2 Chronicles 29:2-32.
What an amazing lesson on repentance...1. Repair the entryways. 2. Carry out the rubbish. 3. Come to Him, sanctify your life.

Good Evening, Pastor Cote
Am sending this e-mail to thank you for your obedience. I have been @ Zion now for 3 years. And last week you said something in class that has impacted me far more than you will ever know.
And it is these words "When you say yes to God, You come into covenant with him. Therefore you must say no to everything else." I left your class with these words echoing in my mind, I was awoken by these words early in the morning the following day. And the Holy Spirit has been ministrying to me through these words. This sentence has indeed impacted my walk with God these few weeks and has really helped me out a lot in my relationship with God. Before coming to your class i was struggling asking God why am not excited to be here at Zion, why He is not speaking clearly to me. And i found the answer in your class why and is simply because of all the other yes in my life that have become a major distraction to me and a dangering my relationship with God.I know it has been just 2 wks to class but am so excited about what God will teach me through this class
P.S. I wanted to tell you after class on Monday but had to go to work..
Thank you for your obedience God Bless!

God bless you sir. I trust all is well with you and your family. I just wanted to say hello. I'm sort of getting back into facebook little by little. As I saw your profile I recalled how you came up and prayed over me at one of the last homecomings. I'm grateful. God really ministered to me that weekend and you were part of it. God bless you.

... I will always cherish our times as you taught the three of us masters commission students the synoptic gospels. It really taught me how to study the bible. God bless you and your family.

From Wanda Barger….Happy Birthday! This quote from you is written on the flyleaf of my Bible: "Do not question whether God is for us or against us, but rather, 'Am I on the Lord's side? Am I for God or against Him?' We need to align ourselves with God." --Gary Cote 11/07/01

Hi Pastor Cote.
I can't sleep at all. My mind is going 100mph thinking of my future. I can't begin to tell you how blessed I am. I have a wonderful wife and our Lord has blessed us with a child that will be with us in December. I finish my associate degree in a couple weeks and God willing a great job lined up with my current employer...I look at what I came from and where I am now and I have only Jesus Christ to thank. And you. You guided me when I first gave my life to Him. I'm a man with flaws but a man that has a relationship with Jesus. Just the other day my wife was telling me how I would feel if she went on a missions trip to Mexico. I told her that I hate the fact that she would be in a drug war environment but if she was doing it for our God I wouldn't want to say no to His will. She was amazed at how I would sacrifice my wife for the church. She is so thankful that I put Him before her. I'm not perfect by a looooong shot; I know I don't deserve all his blessings. But I am not the man I once was. I laugh now when my cousins talk about what a complete change. They say "who would have thought". They don't even offer me beer or anything anymore because they know I don't drink. It’s clear to them now. They understand. I love it when my family gives me the opportunity to talk about my faith. I never forcefully push it on them. But once they ask......I speak. I cut ties with pretty much all my old friends. They won't change. I tried to speak the truth to them but they just call me a sell-out and a hater. I guess they just try to make themselves feel better when I tell them what they should do in their lives. I just wanted to take the time to tell you a bit of what's going on in my life. Thank you so much for speaking the truth to me when I was at my lowest point in my life. Thank you for introducing me to the Gospel. I will never forget December 8, 2009 when I gave my life to Jesus with you on the phone. Thank you. I couldn't ask for more in my life. I am truly blessed. Best wishes for you and your family. Take care Pastor.

Pastor Cote, thank you for the times you were a huge help to me. Not only were you my professor but also a friend that cared. I never forget the times you sat with me and encouraged me to press on...Thank you! Right now I'm in a huge doctrinal problem where I am serving, please pray for me!

Powerful Word of the Lord last night spoken by Gary H. Cote. I am so thankful for a Pastor who has such zeal for the Kingdom of God and compels me to do likewise. Church is truly serious business. FB 06/07/2012

Amen! What an awesome, powerful word! It has to put the fear of God in our hearts. My heart is so greived for those who didn't "get it"....... We can't just "PLAY" church anymore.....

I so appreciated the chance to come to your prayer service with my family. I am always impressed by the love that is abundant in your church. It is obvious that you are leading your flock gently but firmly as they grow in Christ. I know that God wants to have a relationship with his people and I see your folks working hard to build relationships of love and obedience. Thank you to you and the members of your church!

Bro. Cote, hello to you and your family. I often tell my SS teens or in a sermon... what you said about how in the last days; Christians will be persecuted for following the straight and narrow. We will be told that we are not tollerant. I work at the community college and see this often. Kevin and I are doing great pastoring a small church in the country. Thanks again for being obediant to the lord when you prayed "God bless laura", and the lord told you - "you bless laura". Now that we have a family - I know how much that meant to you and how much more that monetary gift meant to me. THANK YOU! God bless you! FB 02/22/2012Bro. Cote, hello to you and your family.

As I turn the pages of "2012 Calendar", I will remind myself "If it is not of faith, it is not on God's Calendar." (Thank you. pastor Gary H. Cote). FB 01/03/2012

I loved your message "New Beginning/ New Calendar" Exodus 12. Thank you for ministering God's Word to His people. Keep sharing, "we" are listening. (I would love to have a copy of this sermon). FB 01/03/2012

Friends, I'd like to recommend a short book to you. Its titled, "They'd Call Me Biased" by Dr. Gary Cote. It is a compilation of 101 reasons non Christians/liberals would call the author, a Christian man, biased. It differentiates while reinforcing the Christian fundamental views of world, national and local topics between the liberal and Christian.
The left will find this book biased and severely slanted to the Christian right, the conservative liberal will agree with many of its points and may read on.
As a Christian, I personally found that this book spoke boldly and to my personal core beliefs. No matter who or where you are in your walk, I encourage you to pick this book up and give it a read. It will certainly open your mind. If you are interested in a copy send me a message and I will give you the details.

Dear Pastor Gary,
Thank you and I praise God every day for Merrimack Valley Church and you! God has lovingly reached down and pulled us out of the muck and mire and planted our feet on dry ground with mercy and grace. You are shepherding us on the path to the Almighty and I thank him every day for your sermons and teaching words that cause us to self-reflect and want to be ever changing and ever growing in Him. I am truly blessed and I pray blessings for you and Merrimack Valley Church. Our lives are changed. Praise God.
Blessings and love to you and your family,
Jill Cote 08/09/2011 - New Hampshire
Thank you Pastor for challenging me to this commitment and pursuit of Christ's wisdom and understanding! In all truthfulness we have never met a pastor like you, ever, and out of our church people are being raised up in the things of God like no other I've ever seen before! With all of the growth we are making and the depth of relationship with Christ I just can't imagine where we will be in years to come. You and Cara are such a blessing to me!

Troy McNulty 07/05/2011 - Massachusetts
What a blessing to see that you have a web site and have written a couple of books. I shall soon place an order and will certainly spend time when I am able to do so on your web site. Thank you for the ways you have blessed my life and continue to do so years later. The rigors you put us through at Zion certainly prepared me for further studies thereafter. Blessings to you and to your family!

What a joy to see your face. Thanks for all that you did for us at Zion. Now l am in ministry with five churches under me. By God's grace they churches that l planted. All because there people like who spoke the word of God into our lives.

Your message last night was powerful and very impactful. I have been pondering it and the importance of living a life unto the Glory of the Lord.
Thank you for sharing and for the example your life is.
