Letter from our Pastor

Grace, Mercy and Peace to you from God the Father and our Lord and Savior

Jesus Christ. I am excited that God has directed you to visit with us at Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church. We invite you to explore our ministries and programs as you view our website. We hope that you will be encouraged and refreshed by all that we have to offer.

Pleasant Ridge Baptist church is dedicated to helping everyone to understand the enormity of Godís love toward mankind. Jesus said in John 15:12 ďThis is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Our goal is to help individuals experience, grow, live in, and serve others through the power of the Holy Spirit. We become true disciples of Jesus Christ as we serve in the name of Jesus. Members of the Body of Christ are called to serve God by serving others. Therefore, we all should be eager to do Godís work no matter what that work may be.

I am thankful for the opportunity and privilege to serve as the Pastor of this great church. I am so grateful for the many members, friends, and relatives whose faithfulness, prayers, and patience has inspired me to continue to fulfill my purpose in ministry. Therefore, I am eager to continue the great work that God had already begun at Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church.

My prayer for all is that you will stay strong, believe, and continue to grow in the knowledge and love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as you go through your journey in life. Although there may be a few rough places along the way, in spite of what it looks like or the obstacles that you may face, things will turn around. I pray you will keep the faith. You can rely on God to encourage you and strengthen you along the way.

Your Humble Servant
Rev. Gary Walton
