A meeting at First Texas Indian Baptist Church in Livingston, TX

First Texas Indian Baptist is the only Baptist church located on the Alabama-Coushatta Reservation. This church has been faithful over the years to preach the Gospel and magnify the Lord. In May of every year, starting the Wednesday after Mother’s Day, the church has their annual Faith Promise Mission Conference. This year Missionary Pastor Raymond Johnson and Missionary Brandon White attended and preached in the conference.

The meeting was well attended by the church. Both, church members and visitors were encouraged, exhorted, and energized by the preaching of God’s word. This conference is an annual meeting and an invitation to attend is extended from Deacon Lyndon Alec. First Texas Indian is also without a pastor and has been for a couple of years. The church has an interim pastor who typically comes every other weekend but they desire a full time pastor to lead and feed the flock of God. There is a great and effectual door to minister through this church on the Alabama-Coushatta Reservation. Will you pray with and for this church that God would raise up the Pastor he wants them to have.

A Report About Corinth Baptist Church

Tucker Community in Choctaw Mississippi

Corinth Baptist Church in Choctaw, MS

Corinth Baptist Church in Choctaw, MS

Indian Baptist Church of Smithville, OK took a mission trip to sponsor and run a Vacation Bible School at Corinth Baptist Church. The church is located on the Choctaw Reservation in the Tucker Community near Philadelphia, MS. The VBS averaged 100 adults and children in attendance each evening, with a high of 83 children on Wednesday night. The Church is pastored by Bro. Mark Patrick. The Tucker Community is predominantly Catholic and needs a strong gospel witness. Corinth Baptist Church has been struggling for a number of years, but the Lord has recently brought life back into the work. The Lord has called together a nucleus of believers who are reaching this community effectively. The building is in poor shape and will soon have to be moved because the State is widening the highway.

Need for a new building

The church has a new location to rebuild and currently praying that the Lord will raise the needed funds to build a new building. Will you join the church in praying for the Lord to meet this need? They are praying that the Lord will send the funds and the builders to help the members of Corinth Baptist Church get a new building with classrooms and a fellowship hall? If you can be of assistance concerning this need please contact The Baptist Arrow.
