     Meet Our Minister

Reverend Miller C. Carter Jr.


“I will work everyday as if it were my last.  I believe there is urgency in our work for the Lord.  We must work while it is day, for the night is coming in which no man may work.  I will give of myself to glorify the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, because of my belief in two things: 

    1) The Lord is soon to return; and

    2) Only what we do for Christ will last. 

Therefore we must take seriously the work that must be done in seeking and saving those who are lost.”




We invite you to join us for service and meet Pastor Carter!
