And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; And some evangelist; and some pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ; Till we all come in the unity of the faith; and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the nature of the fullness of Christ. Ephesians 4:11-13
Blackjack Missionary Baptist Church is a place where we truly believe everybody is somebody. As a body of baptized believers we hold the bible to be true and right. With that belief we use biblical principles and practices to form and guide our purpose in the body Christ. We strongly believe that every believer has a place and a purpose in building the Kingdom of God. We strive to educate and elevate believers into that perfect man that God has called us to be. We understand that all begin as babes in Christ, but according to Ephesians 4:11-13 it helps us understand that Jesus Christ calls all believers to a deeper relationship of commitment, consecration, & conviction. We also believe that the fullness of God rest within believing and functioning according to scripture.
