I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is with excitement and incredible joy that I welcome you to the Website of Faith Missionary Baptist Church, Buffalo, New York!
We endeavor to be like Christ everyday; therefore, we submit to His Sovereign Word in its entirety.
Here at Faith Missionary Baptist Church, it is our desire to educate, edify and increase those who are not in the knowledge of Jesus as your personal Savior, to aid in the gap between those who once walked in His Grace and Mercy and may be farther away from Him now, and to provide the climate where the Saints of God can freely worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. In other words, we aim to (1) call sinners to repentance, (2) regain the backslider and (3) to enlighten the Saints of God.
As the Pastor of this flock, I implore each and every one of you to prayerfully consider your place in the Body of Believers. You are welcomed to join us every Sunday at 9:15 a.m. Sunday Church School and at 10:45 Morning Worship. We have Bible Study Class for both our Adult Class and a Youth and Young Adult Class every Wednesday from 6:30 p.m. until 7:30 p.m.
Although we are in the world, we should endeavor to remember that we are not to be of the world (Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
John 15:19 “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you”). We should love one another as Christ has loved us.
In order to be successful in reaching those who do not know the Lord in the pardon of their sins, to link the gap for those who are out of fellowship with the Lord, through the Church, and to edify/build up those who currently know and love the Lord, we have resolved to be a never-ending ministry of study (II Timothy 2:15 “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth”). Therefore, I invite you to dedicate yourself, to the learning about the Lord through Sunday Church School and Bible Study that you may also learn more about Jesus and yourself. For it is only when we truly see ourselves is when we can truly see the Lord.
On behalf of the members of Faith Missionary Baptist Church, it is our fervent ambition to both serve and be of service to God by ministering to and with you. Our website is one of the many vehicles through which we are able to accomplish this task. I prayer that you will find our website instructive, attractive and inspirational!
Join us for Sunday Church School, Midweek Bible Study and Worship every Sunday; we look forward to sharing and celebrating Jesus with you.
Again, I excitedly welcome you here and I look forward to your coming as we worship our Sovereign Lord!
Because He Lives,
Pastor James R Banks II
