Words from the Pastor
I arrived at Mount Nebo Baptist Church in San Antonio, Texas in January 2000 on the first Sunday morning of the month. This marked the beginning of my Christian journey with Mount Nebo. Since that time we have had many ups and downs, twists and turns, but through it all God has directed our path.
I am so excited about what God is doing at Mt. Nebo today. Although we are located in an area that most people will not consider a good place for a church to prosper and grow, God said, 'stay here, for I have a great work for you to do'.
It has been a tough uphill battle encouraging people who have addictions, engaged in prostitution, living in undesirable conditions, those with have suicidal tendencies, and even the homeless. . . to come to Christ - for I believe Christ is the only One who can change the heart of a man or woman and bring you out of any situation you want to be delivered from.
One of my favorite scriptures comes from Jeremiah 29:11(NIV): "For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
It is my desire to teach my congregation God's word so that they may allow God's Kingdom to come to Earth and his Will to be done in their lives. This is what I endeavor to do.
It is my prayer that the lives of each and every person that walks through the doors of Mt. Nebo will hear the Words of God and never be the same again.
