Rev. Irvin Lee Baxter

Richardson - Reverend Irvin Baxter, Jr. died Tuesday after complications from Covid-19. He was 75.

Baxter was a United Pentecostal Church minister, radio and television host, evangelist, author, and biblical scholar who hosted the internationally syndicated biblical prophecy program, End of the Age. Baxter was also the founder and president of Endtime Ministries.

Baxter began ministering as a traveling evangelist at the age of 19 and began pastoring when he was just 26. He served as pastor of Oak Park Church in Richmond, Indiana for 33 years before devoting his full attention to Endtime Ministries.

The television and radio program End of the Age, which Baxter began, reaches over 100 million households in North America, in addition to satellite and internet distribution worldwide.

Beyond the broadcast ministry, Baxter also founded The Israel Project in 2013. The endeavor includes an online Jerusalem-based Bible school, Jerusalem Prophecy College.

Baxter is survived by his loving wife of 55 years, Judith Ann Baxter; three adult children, Karla Denise Sistrunk (Rev. Scott), Kara Michelle McPeak (Gary), Jana Gayle Robbins (Rev. David); eight grandchildren, Mika Paige Harris, Rev. Vince Morgan Stegall (Rev. Kaitlyn), Rev. Darron Scott Sistrunk (Felecia), Raquel Jordan Whitt (Donald), Broc Michael Robbins, Chase Marcus Sistrunk, Hollye Chantal Brua (Rev. Brandon), and Vincent Michael McPeak; ten great-grandchildren, a host of wonderful friends and many faithful partners of Endtime Ministries.

Funeral services under the direction of Rest Haven Funeral Home, Rockwall, TX, will be held 11:00am, Tuesday, November 10, 2020, at North Cities United Pentecostal Church, 502 Belt Line Road, Garland. Interment will follow in Rest Haven Memorial Park in Rockwall. A gathering of family and friends will be held Monday afternoon at North Cities United Pentecostal Church from 4:00 to 8:00pm and Tuesday, prior to the service, beginning at 10:00am.

The family welcomes flowers but requests that you consider donating to Endtime Ministries at www.endtime.com to continue advancing Irvin's God-given vision and the Kingdom of God. Also, we have had numerous partners ask to give specifically to funeral expenses and the obstacles surrounding the Baxter family as they navigate these trying times. The Baxter Tribute fund has been created to fulfill that specific partner request:https://store.endtime.com/p-963-special-tribute-for-irvin-baxter.aspx?donationFrequency=M.

The funeral service will be streamed live at www.endtime.com/live

"HE WHO HEARS MY WORD AND BELIEVES IN HIM WHO SENT ME. . . HAS PASSED FROM DEATH INTO LIFE" (JOHN 5:24, NKJV).

Really sorry to hear about the passing of Rev. Baxter. Used to watch his telecast everytime I could. It broke my heart to hear that he left us. Glad, though, that he's with the Lord.
May his soul rest in peace.

Dr. Baxter was a source of The Lord's Light in this world that keeps getting darker as God's word predicts. His prophesy teachings were a Real Blessing unto my Life. He will be greatly missed but He is now in the presence of The Living God forever where there are no more pains or sorrows. May the Lord comfort His family in this time of sorrow. "Sorrow may last for a night but joy comes in the morning". He will be greatly missed but he has already heard : WELL DONE GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT ENTER INTO MY REST" I just found this morning. My deepest condolences to all His family. God bless you all.

We were saddened today when looking for some End Time materials to see the news of Rev. Baxter's passing. His teaching has touched our lives and has enabled us to share knowledge gained by watching his CDs with others. He surely must have been welcomed to Heaven with the words "enter in my good and faithful servant". Our sympathies are with his family. He will be missed by many. In Christ's love, Fritz and Cathy Heitzenrater

Over the last year I have watched and enjoyed all the information that Reverend Baxter has shared with us regarding the End Times. I did not know that he was ill and know he is resting in the arms of Jesus - happily! Thank you for all you have done to strengthen our faith and our knowledge of Israel. Heaven is very happy to have you I am sure and you will be truly missed. Rest in peace, now.

I watched him and heard him. He was the 100 percent of those in the bible we heard about. He is a prophet from our father. He will return with the Lord an I'm in complete understanding because of him thank you an this does hurt my heart to see one of Gods angels go when we needed him the most.

Bro. Baxter was an inspiration to me when I needed spiritual guideness. I was a listener to the "End of Age" broadcast back in 1995, was over joyed when he relocated to DFW area and attended many Conferences as well.

Irvin was a childhood friend from Richmond IN. area. My wife Cheryl and I had the privilege to take an Israel tour. We had a great time with his family, lots of pictures. Stopped over in Germany toured Rothenburg, Flew to Damascus, old city and he taught in Ananias house Street called Straight. Palmyra, Jordan and Israel. While in Damascus we went into a mosque and all the women dressed in hooded brown cover. (got the photos) Sis Baxter was fun along with the daughters and sons-in-law. Food was horrid and a McDonalds looked like a golden arched supper club. Singing on the Jesus boat was the highlight, Also a highlight, We met Gershon Salomon the founder and leader of the Temple Mount and Land of Israel Faithful Movement. We sang everywhere we went. Good time with our guide Huda Guy. Irvin was indefatigable. Great knowledge, our condolences. Tom and Cheryl Clark.

I met Bro. Baxter after I first came to Jesus.
He was teaching day classes at our family camp in Arnold Missouri. It was over 20 years ago. It was also the first time I shook his hand and spoke with him.
It was also the first time anyone had ever explained the book of Revelation and the prophecys to me where they made sense! God used Bro. Baxter that day to open my eyes and give me the desire to learn even more! His very appropriate song he chose at the end of class moved my soul after that anointed teaching! "Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!"
I have taught Endtime Bible studies using his material and so passed his gift to me onto others. I only wish I could have taken a tour led by him to Israel!
So very many along with myself, will greatly miss him but will carry on. I know he is rejoicing with God in Heaven! He now has all the answers to his questions! ❤

I very much enjoyed his show often viewing it in my small group as we studied end times in the BIBLE. We learned a lot from him and very much appreciate his passion for the WORD OF GOD and making sense of what he studied. I also appreciate his love of the nation of ISRAEL. Although I disagree with believers being on earth during tribulation, I learned much from Mr Baxter. I am trusting JESUS TO RAPTURE US!!! RIP .. I believe Jesus welcomes him with these words...”well done thy good and faithful servant.”

I was so saddened to learn of the passing of Irvin Baxter this afternoon.
My absence from viewing Christian television brought me to one of my favorite programs which I was thrilled to see coming on. However, as the program began, I intuitively knew he had passed. God has given me the “gift of discernment” and today He showered my gift once again as I listened in. I was then given memories of one of His obedient servants who taught me so very much about His word.
I would like to thank God for bringing His humble child to me when I was in need and I would like to thank Mr. Baxter for his diligent work and dedication throughout his lifetime in bringing God’s children to accept Jesus and claim their salvation.
My prayers go out to his family and friends. Though he will be dearly missed we all know his happiness is far greater there than here.
I look forward to meeting you one day Sir. I look forward to the day Jesus calls us up to all meet in the air.
