I have visited this church several times and have never failed to be greeted at the door or in the sanctuary by members, as well as non-members. The choir is one, if not the best, I've ever heard. They have their own live band and their voices are angelic. Like many churches, they even have two large screen monitors that include the words to the music, messages and bulletins, and also shows the scriptures for the convenience of those who may not be able to hear or see as well they'd like or for those who just may not have brought their Bibles. It includes the words to the sermon and the songs, making it so much easier to follow along and to join in the praise and worship of the message and music. The pastor is passionate and true to the scriptures and is not afraid to shed a tear or personal account of his message. He is personable, approachable and always makes time for everyone to pray, answer questions or listen to a problem or comment, no matter how long he has to stay. I have never walked away from a visit disappointed either by the music, sermon, atmoshpere or any of the above. The congregation is a mix from all walks of life, economically, racially, nationality or demographically, and in no way cators to a specific crowd. It was not until I read on yellowpages.com that it is a Pentacostal religion. The messages that the pastor sends out recognizes all "Christian" beliefs. It is the most rewarding time I've ever spent worshipping our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. I would highly recommend this church to anyone of any faith or nationality. They even have buses that will pick you up and drop you back off no matter where you live or stay. It is well worth your time and drive from anywhere. You will be entertained, and touched, if not only by the sermon, but by the music of the choir, as well. I've never heard anything but praise and compliments regarding people's experiences and the comfort and convenience they feel in this house of worship. It is warm and inviting which makes you want to come back. I, personally am not a member of this church yet, but will soon approach the pastor regarding my Baptism and membership. After just a few short visits, I am already convinced that this is where I belong. It feels like home, and there's no doubt in my heart and soul that this is where I want to be. I challenge anyone to try it out, even if for one time. You won't forget it. I'd like to thank each member, especially the pastor, for making me feel so welcome and comforted. It is not easy for me to go or meet new people, but here I didn't have one feeling of discomfort or not belonging.
Baptist is a great name after John the Baptist in the Bible. He always prepared the way of the Lord. Long Run well that's a another great name to live up to because the Christian faith is a long run. It's going the distance. It's running for the prize from our King Jesus Christ. The Baptist Association is wonderful because they stand for the Law of GOD. Great name now run the race and help Jesus establish his church and all of the lost because Jesus is coming again quickly. Bless you and your efforts to be a church on the Rock.
Truly a church family! We received a warm welcome and have enjoyed the fellowship with friendly people. We are challenged spiritually each week with solid biblical teachings from a caring and loving pastor. The children's ministry goes above and beyond to do exciting & engaging things for the kids. Plenty of monthly activities to be a part of also.
