My name is Matthew Johnson and I am the Senior Pastor at Believers Baptist Church. My wife Becky and I have been married for 10 years and the Lord has blessed our family with two children, Aleigha and Ben.
Although I accepted the Lord as my Savior when I was 12 years old, I did not feel a call to ministry until 8 years ago. My wife and I moved to Shelby, North Carolina where I attended Ambassador Baptist College for a short time before taking classes from Piedmont International University. While in Shelby, we helped plant a church and worked with the youth group in an underprivileged area. God used this time in our lives to grow us, mature us, and draw us closer to Him.
Believers Baptist church had recently called us to serve along side of them as the Associate Pastor in June 2018. April 14th of this year the church called us to be the new Senior Pastor after the stepping down of Pastor Worley. The Lord has already worked in our lives since being here, and we are thrilled to be partnering with Believers Baptist Church.
It is my hope and prayer that you would consider making Believers Baptist Church your home, where you can find sound doctrinal teaching, sweet Christian fellowship and love like you have never known before.
My family and I are excited to see all the things that God has in store for Believers Baptist Church and we hope that you will consider joining us.
