We Welcome You To Arden Missionary Baptist Church
Information About Our Church
As a local body of believers our mission is to reach a lost and dying world with the gospel of Jesus Christ. People need Christ! All the problems in this world today we believe can be solved by him
Through preaching and teaching the Word of God locally; seeing people saved. Through sending missionaries all over the world, and simply loving people to Christ is the absolute way to accomplish this task.
We are blessed in such a great way at Arden Missionary Baptist Church. You may say what more do you need?
1.)The Truth of the matter
The truth is everyone can afford to grow in the Lord. 2 Peter 3:18 KJV “But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.” I do not know how to grow a church, but God does! We need his grace and his knowledge
2.)The Timing of the matter
Our intention is to grow as a local New Testament Baptist Church as the Lord would lead us to grow.
3.) The Trust of the matter
We trust, and anticipate the Lord to do great things in the future for our church. If you do not have a church home we invite you to come join us as we endeavor to accomplish what God has for us.
1.) To Glorify the Lord
Our purpose as a local New Testament Church is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ in all that we do, because of what he has done for us!
Psalm 126:3 KJV “The Lord hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.”
Romans 15:6 KJV “That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
2.) To Go
Our purpose as believers is to GO! We understand the importance being in church, but were not saved simply to set on a church pew, but rather to serve the Lord.
Psalm 100:2 KJV “Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.”
3.) To Give
Our purpose as believers is to give not only of our tithes and offerings, but of ourselves.
Our time, our love for sinners, and for the brethren, for a lost and dying world.
2 Corinthians 8:1-5 KJV “Moreover, brethren, we do you to wit of the grace of God bestowed on the churches of Macedonia; How that in a great trial of affliction the abundance of their joy and their deep poverty abounded unto the riches of their liberality. For to their power, I bear record, yea, and beyond their power they were willing of themselves; Praying us with much in treaty that we would receive the gift, and take upon us the fellowship of the ministering to the saints. And this they did , not as we hoped, but first gave their own selves to the Lord, and unto us by the will of God.”
1.) To Promote old time religion
In a fast paced; Technologically advanced world we believe old time religion is still alive and well. Through preaching, praying, singing, and shouting we seek to deliver our message this way using every tool the Lord would enable us to have.
Deuteronomy 6:3 KJV “Hear therefore, O Israel, and observe to do it ; that it may be well with thee, and that ye may increase mightily, as the Lord God of thy fathers hath promised thee, in the land that floweth with milk and honey.”
Proverbs 3:5 KJV
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”
2.) To Preach the book
We seek to deliver our message through the preaching of God’s Word. For the sinner, for the believer, for everything in life the Bible has the answers we need!
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.”
1 Corinthians 1:18 KJV “For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.”
1 Corinthians 1:21 KJV “For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.”
3.) To Praise the Lord
We seek to deliver our message through simply praising our lovely Saviour. You cant go wrong by bragging on him!!
Psalm 150:6 KJV “Let every thing that hath breath praise the Lord . Praise ye the Lord.”
Psalm 9:1-2 KJV “I will praise thee , O Lord , with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvelous works.I will be glad and rejoice in thee: I will sing praise to thy name, O thou most High.”
Brother Stephen Israel has served as the pastor of the Arden Missionary Baptist Church since August of 2012. First as interim pastor, then elected as full time pastor in February 2013 to the present.
A word from the pastor: “I would like to start by thanking the God of heaven for this tremendous opportunity to talk to you a little about me. First of all I was saved on the morning of February 20, 2000. That morning changed my life for ever. I’ve never gotten over it! After times of drifting from the Lord I still remember that blessed day when Jesus saved me. He’s always been faithful. The Lord began dealing with my heart about the ministry in 2005. I didn’t surrender until 2007, and have been serving the Lord in this capacity since then.
I have been married to the love of my life Alicia for eleven years. I have so much to thank God for in her. She has stood by me through this journey thus far. We have two precious little girls Savannah,and Ava that are each blessing from God.
I would like to leave by saying to be ready! Know for sure your saved! I would love this opportunity to talk with you on how to be saved. I would like to extend a personal invitation for you to join us in one of our services.”
