The Pastor’s Corner

With all your heart, you must trust the LORD and not your own judgment. Always let him lead you, and he will clear the road for you to follow. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

Greetings to you, my brothers and sisters in Christ. I would like to officially welcome you to our Myrtle Baptist Church Pastor’s Corner. Throughout the months to come, I will post video blogs, some of my academic writings and random thoughts that God places in my heart – in this section of our church’s website. This blog will be very informal. We will share scriptures, sermonettes, political critiques. I will share thoughts and views that are near and dear to my heart as a pastored person and a child of God. I pray that our Pastor’s Blog will be a blessing to you throughout the months to come. As the Senior Pastor of the Myrtle Baptist, it is my daily prayer that God will use me to inspire people of the world. God bless you and I look forward to ministering to you via the World Wide Web. Check back on Wednesdays for weekly updates. – BC
