Welcome to St. Rest Missionary Baptist Church

I believe that you’re not here by accident, but by God’s providence.  It is my hope that you will become an active member engaging in ministry and pursuing God’s perfect will for your life.  It is in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are truly living for.  This is called discipleship.  That’s why I’m excited by you becoming a member here at Saint Rest. We, focus on Christian discipleship and not just church  membership.  It is my hope that you become a disciple of Jesus Christ.  In discipleship, one of the first things that we learn is that you were made by God and for God.  Until you  understand that, life will never make sense.

I hope that you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and  Savior.  This is the only way you will discover your identity and purpose—is in relationship with Jesus Christ.  Secondly, may I say to you God was thinking of you long before you ever thought about him.  His purpose for your life pre-dates your conception.  He planned it before you existed, without your  input!  You may choose your career, your spouse, your hobbies and many other parts of your life, but you did not choose your purpose.  Finally, let me say to you, Your purpose fits into a much bigger cosmic purpose that God has designed for eternity and that’s what the Christian life is really about.  Living for him in time that we Live with him in eternity.  So once again, let me say welcome to the pursue of God, the love of one  another, and the service to humanity.
