Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in Heaven and Whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in Heaven." Matthew 18:18 (NIV)\n \n Bishop Wilson Roberta Erving, the son of the late George Butler Ervin and Rosa Belle Dalton Ervin was called to eternal rest on Thursday, March 17, 2011 at Wicomico Nursing Home in Salisbury, Maryland. \tBro. Wilson, as he was called by his family members, was born on August 11, 1926 in Bethania, North Carolina. He was united in Holy Matrimony to the late Ella Mae Johnson on April 6, 1954. This union was blessed with one daughter. \tBro. Wilson received his public education at Carver High School in Forsyth County, North Carolina. Bishop Erving was the founder and Pastor of "The Church of Love" which originated in Baltimore, Maryland in 1963. After serving for several years, he relocated to the Eastern Shore to begin another church affiliated with the Church of Love. He continued serving the church in Cambridge, Maryland until his health started to decline. Even though Bishop Erving's health declined to the point of being a resident of the Wicomico Nursing Home, he still continued to do the Master's work until death. You could find Bishop Erving going around the nursing home laying hands on patients, believing God to do a miraculous healing in their lives. On the night that God called Bishop Erving home to be with Him, the nurse found Bishop on his knees in a praying position, evident that he had been talking to his Heavenly Father. \tBishop Erving's favorite Bible verse was Matthew 18:18 and his favorite songs were "He's Sweet I Know", "To God Be The Glory" and "How Great Thou Art." \tBishop Erving leaves to cherish cheerful and precious memories a loving and devoted daughter and son in-law, Michelle and Dawayne Molock of Mardela Springs, Maryland; a loving granddaughter, Ramia Erving of Douglasville, Georgia; two brothers, Joseph F. (Anna S.) of Bethania, North Carolina and Jakay W. Ervin Sr. (Minnie J.) of Winston-Salem, North Carolina; seven nephews, Daniel "Bunny" Mitchell, Robert Mitchell, Phillip Ray Littlejohn, Oliver Abbott Jr., Conway Abbott, Clay Abbott and Jakay W. Erving Jr. (all of Winston-Salem, North Carolina); eight nieces, Elizabeth Speas, Renda Perry, Pamela Nolan, Sylvia Matthews, Cynthia Wright, Constance Caldwell and Rosa V. Erving (all of Winston-Salem, North Carolina), Chelsea Griffith of Los Angeles, California and a host of other relative and friends.\n \n Funeral services will be held on Saturday, March 26, 2011 1pm at Refuge Temple Church of God 800 Robbins St Cambridge, MD with a viewing two hours prior to the services.
