I am truly humbled and honored for this awesome privilege to serve as pastor of the historic, the mother church of the International City of Warner Robins, Georgia, The “Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church”. It’s my desire to honor God in everything we do, by fulfilling the calling of God and by serving his people. I firmly believe that the Lord has something in store for us all her at Jerusalem. Like God’s chosen leaders Moses and Paul, their instruction and goals as leaders mimic my ambition as your Pastor.
It is my prayer that my preaching and teaching encourages each of you to be better Christians. It will help you to love your neighbor as yourself. I will encourage you when you are down, strengthen you when you are week and inspire you when you are not at your best. It is my goal to proclaim the name of the Jesus Christ and to Change this community, one person at a time.
Each of us must follow God’s example, as He said in His word therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. The closer we walk with Jesus and continue to learn and walk in His ways, the more we can do for our community and help others see the goodness of the Lord as we watch the lost come and give their lives to Christ.
Our biggest challenge as we strive to serve this present age is to make every effort and to take advantage of every opportunity to show an appreciation for God’s Amazing Grace and the love we share for our church as well as our church family. God’s abundance of grace has been more than enough for our beloved church. God has brought us 139 years, from a bush harbor, to a wooden frame church to our present location. We know this is not all God has for us; so we will remain on the battle field as our fore-fathers and see what the Lord has in store for our future. We know that he has greater things instore for Jerusalem. Eyes have not seen and ears have not heard what the Lord has instore for us. Come and join us for this ride.
In His Service
Rev. Dr. Christopher S. West
