Hello, my name is Matthew Fearnside, current part owner of Fearnside’s Fix-All.
My story began on May 26, 2009 at 6 o’clock in the morning when I knelt beside my bed, confessed my sins and turned my life over to my Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. It changed my life and gave me a completely different outlook on life.
I was currently working at an Independent Automotive Repair Shop in Loves Park, IL that closed down in February of 2010. It was then that I felt God burden my heart to go out on my own and work for myself with the desire of being able to make a living fixing cars and reaching people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I worked out of my house for 3 years before an opportunity came about through a friend of mine to rent a place on 845 Broad street Beloit, WI. I prayed about it for a year and felt that God opened the door for me to operate a business out of that location.
With the help of my Dad, who has been my faithful partner and financial advisor in so many different ways, we decided to open Fearnside’s Fix-All with the slogan of "Reaching lost souls for Christ and fixing cars at the same time".
It has been a blessing being able to represent Christ openly and operate a honest car and light truck repair business. I have seen many Christians operate businesses but never boldly proclaim the saving gospel of Jesus Christ, and this was something I personally wanted to do differently.
After successfully doing business for 6 years, by the grace of God an opportunity arose for me to purchase a place on 2010 South Afton Road and after much prayer I, along with my dad, felt it was God’s will for us to move; and with much hard work we moved to the new location and started business there on April 1, 2019.
It has been a blessing and I owe it all to the Lord for letting me use His property for making a living and sharing His gospel during my working career.
