I have the great privilege of speaking in many North Carolina Baptist churches. As you might expect, each of these churches is unique and represents a very wide variety of sizes, cultures, ages, styles and heritages. I am amazed at the special way God is working in all of them. It makes me want to glorify God with overwhelming praise.
Since Sunday I have been preaching revival services at Mt. Olive Baptist Church in King, N.C. This is one of the many churches I call a "backbone" church. Congregations like Mt. Olive have a rich, rural heritage of faithfully shining the light of the gospel for generations. Pastor Carl Goodman and associate pastor Randy Storz are "backbone" men who stand strong for the truth of God's Word and lead the church to faithfully support Great Commission work around the world. I have been encouraged by the faithfulness of these men and the Mt. Olive fellowship. Thank you, brothers and sisters, for your partnership in the gospel!
