This is a genuine place with real and genuine people. They love hard and make you feel at home. Greatest group people anyone could pastor.
The Saint James Baptist Church Family are very warm and welcoming. The Pastor preaches the Word of God. Very community focused.
James 2: 1 Speakes on the sin of being a respecter of persons or the sin of partially. As Christians we are not to favor other races or ethnicities over others because we were all created by God. I say all this because this church felt very racist! This "church" was aweful. From the nursery to the Sunday school, for the most part not friendly at all! Our family will NEVER return there! I had heard things (racist) about this place from friends but wanted to be a judge for myself. This was by far the coldest church I have ever been to before! This is supposed to be the Body of Christ! Well, as they say "attitude reflects leadership"! It all comes from the top-church leadership.
WOW! That is all I can say. A friend invited me to their service this past Saturday for Easter and it was awesome! They played this old song by the Marshal Tucker band! I loved it. There was even an Easter drama that was suprisingly very good. I will be going back next week to see what is next.
At first glance this place was big and a little intimidating. But once I got inside all that went away. There were smiling faces, welcoming us in and shaking our hands. They even had special seating for us! I liked it alot. Then came the music. I have never heard music like that in a church before. Even my daughter liked it which was shocking. The Pastor came out with a great message and I felt like I could understand and keep up with what he was saying. I later found out that the lady singing is the Pastors wife!! How cool. Our first time was the Easter service and there was a drama that brought me to tears. There is so much going there that I will be going back to learn more.
This place was awesome! The music, the worship, the preaching, the people, all of it was exactly what I have been looking for. As soon as I walked in there were people greeting me and shaking my hand. It was just a nice atmosphere and I didnt feel out of place, as you can at other churches. I looked around and thought to myself how these were my kind of people.
