Pastor

Pastor Jim Stallings - WelcomeWELCOME!

We are pleased to have you visit our website. 

It has been my privilege since 1986 to make Maranatha my spiritual home. During this time I have enjoyed ministering the Word of God to our people and have been blessed to see so many of them grow in grace and in knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. We take seriously the admonition of 2 Timothy 2:2  "And the things that thou hast heard of me  among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to  teach others also." We have witnessed this process taking place in our church through the years. Godly men, women and young people are able to give a reason for the hope they possess.

As a pastor, I am committed to preaching and teaching the great doctrines of grace that orthodox Christian bodies have believed and declared from the beginning. The people of God are excited and energized, changed and challenged through worshiping the God of the Bible, therefore we seek to exegete His message as clearly and accurately as possible that we may know Him more intimately, love Him more sincerely, and serve Him more obediently. We are not only to glorify Him, but enjoy Him. What a wonderfully sovereign, glorious and gracious God He is.  

As for our people, they are a warm, caring and loving group. You will not feel that you are a stranger in our midst. I think our approach to Christian living is a very balanced one. Though doctrinal truth is important to us, having it show in our lives is just as important. The gospel is always more attractive when it is reflected in the good behavior of the saints.     

The only thing better than having you visit our website is having you visit our worship services. Look around while you are here, then come and worship with us. God bless you!
