"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen" (Matthew 28:19-20).
Landmark Missionary Baptist Church is a body of saved, baptized believers working together to serve the Lord Jesus Christ. The church is modeled according to the design that Jesus gave when he first called out his church during his personal ministry (Matthew 4:17-22). The church was organized on September 4, 1955.
We strive to follow the original pattern of the church given in the the New Testament and to fufill the commission that the Lord gave to his churches to "teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you."
We are a vital local body that has an intimate relationship with our only head: The Lord Jesus Christ. This relationship with our Lord is manifested by our love for one another.
All of our meetings are open to the public and we welcome visitors. It is our goal to show the love of Christ to everyone with whom we come in contact. Click here for times and location.
We do not believe that you need to be a member of LMBC to be saved, nor that we have the only true church. We do believe, however, that the life of the believer was meant to be lived in the fellowship of a local church, and that true churches bear the identifying marks of a scriptural New Testament church as described in the Bible.
Our pastor, Brother Jim Brasseal, surrendered to the Lord's call to preach in 1958. He received his Doctorate of Theology from Gulf Coast Baptist Seminary in Hattiesburg, Mississippi and later worked as a missionary in Mississippi and Nebraska for a total of 18 years. He served as the vice president of the Gulf Coast Baptist Seminary from 1989 to 1996, and he has been pastor of Landmark Missionary Baptist Church since April of 1996.
By the way, he grows really good green beans and squash.
Landmark Missionary Baptist Church is a self-governing, independent local body whose only head is the Lord Jesus Christ. The church fellowships with the American Baptist Association and the Rocky Mountain Missionary Baptist Association for the purpose of cooperating in mission work and church edification. However, the associations do not have any authority over this or any other church.
