Welcome to Miracle Missionary Baptist Church
Pastor Arthur L. Thompson Jr

Hello & Welcome



 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before. Philippians 3:13. 

     The apostle Paul tells the church that he’s in pursuit of his goal, to win Christ. Despite all of his past accomplishments and accolades he made. As a result of what Christ has done for him, he concludes that all his past achievements, didn’t compare to him seeking Christ. Paul’s determination was to let nothing or nobody prevent his forward progress. As believers, are we like the apostle Paul pursuing Christ or allowing our past to paralyze our future progress?

     Church, let us prepare to move in a forward direction. Moving forward requires us to not allow our past experiences to block what God has in store for our future. Let us forget those things that are behind us and reach forth unto those things which are before us.

      He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. Matthew 28:6.  

     April 9th is Resurrection Day. We the entire membership will celebrate the risen Savior, Jesus Christ. Sunrise Service begins at 6:00 a.m., following breakfast, Sunday School presentation and go into the second service.

     Church, let us prepare to get up and come out to worship early, fellowship around the table, encourage our Sunday School Department and then conclude with the second service.

     Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Psalm 103:1.

     The Men’s Health Workshop was a blessing for the Lord. The Mighty Men of Miracle along with other men came out and received the health education to our men. Thank you to our Men’s Ministry for their interest and to Dr. Derrick Butler for allowing God to use him to speak through him to us.
