FROM THE HEART OF OUR PASTOR
WHAT A HIGH HONOR AND PRIVILEGE THE GOOD LORD JESUS CHRST HAS GIVEN
ME TO SERVE AS THE PASTOR OF PINEY FOREST BAPTIST CHURCH. THE HEARTS OF
PATTY AND I ARE FILLED WITH GRATITUDE TO THE LORD FOR WHERE HE HAS PLACED
US. FROM THE FIRST DAY TO THIS DAY, WE ARE STILL AMAZED AND FILLED WITH
WONDER OF HIS GOODNESS. THERE IS NO GREATER CHURCH THAT HE COULD HAVE PLACED
US. PINEY FOREST IS A CHURCH FULL OF LOVE, PATIENCE AND KINDNESS. WE ARE
EXCITED TO SEE WHAT ALL THE GOOD LORD WILL DO HERE!
I AM A BORN AGAIN BAPTIST. I GREW UP IN A LOGGER'S HOME IN THE FOOTHILLS
OF ALEXANDER COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA. ALSO IN A RURAL AREA FULL OF HARD
WORKING PEOPLE. I WAS CALLED BY OUR LORD TO PREACH HIS TRUTH AND HIS WORDS.
I FELT LIKE A CALL TO PREACH WAS A CALL TO PREPARE.
I WENT ON TO VICTORY BIBLE COLLEGE WHERE I RECEIVED MY BACHELOR'S, MY
MASTER'S, AND MY DOCTORAL DEGREE. I THANK PINEY FOREST BAPTIST CHURCH FOR
ALLOWING ME TO SERVE FULL TIME IN GOD'S CALL FOR THEIR LIVES. IT IS A JOY
TO SERVE THEM AND OUR HEARTS ARE FULL OF JOY.
PATTY AND I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW HOW SPECIAL AND PRECIOUS PINEY FOREST
BAPTIST CHURCH IS. THERE ARE MANY UNDERSTANDING AND GRACIOUS PEOPLE HERE
WORKING IN MANY DIFFERENT MINISTRYS; AS WITH YOUTH, MISSIONS, SPECIAL EVENTS,
AND OUTINGS, WITH MANY OTHER THINGS. EACH ONE HERE IS A TROPHY OF GOD'S
GRACE. THEIR LOVE AND KINDNESS KNOWS NO BOUNDARIES. THEY ARE THE GREATEST
PEOPLE THIS SIDE OF HEAVEN.

On May 11, 1935, which would have been
on Saturday considering the fact that there is no error here, a baby boy
was born to Ellie P. Alford and Alice Hyman Alford…. Physical life continued
after some months of being carried about by a loving mother….There being
no way to tell, in the physical, exactly when the baby was conceived, life
began there. God invited me at that stage in life to participate
in his plans and purposes. Rebellion, be an ugly word in my vocabulary
was down through the early years prevalent in my life. Our parents
worked hard to provide the necessary things such as food, clothing, schooling,
and especially seeing that the family was in church when the doors were
open. That was the most important aspect of our lives, other than
sitting in the corner quietly while God was passing by a thunderstorm.
Reverence for God was mandatory then and I still practice it today.
Years of schooling, Andrews High School
graduate, some extra studying and training for a job of a lifetime (then
I thought) with Delta Airlines which was a highlight in my life. Then after
a few years, we came back to Andrews to go into business for myself.
After a wedding, January 1st, 1966, I am married to a wonderful woman Dora
Marshall. It was time for us to make some spiritual commitment.
Having been raised in the Free Will Baptist
Church, I felt an urge to move out a little and we found ourselves in the
Pentecostal Holiness Church. I could never come to grip with the fact that
I was a denominationalist by no means but got very involved in the church
music, teaching a Sunday School class, elected to the Board of Deacons,
and started a singing group that went about singing in homecomings, revivals,
and other functions. Anointed singing in church services, I believe,
sets the stage for praise and worship. I have always had a passion for
a stirring service where there is corporate worship.
After 38 years in the P. H. Church, Dora
and I felt a calling to move our membership to Piney Forest Baptist Church.
Like I have already said, I do not believe in being bound by a denomination
because there is only one true God and he is in every heart that accepts
and lives according to His Holy Word.
Piney Forest Baptist Church has been good
for us and we dearly love to worship with the people there. I feel
honored that the church allows me to work with the choir, teach a Sunday
School class, serve on the Board of Deacons, and also work on several church
committees. God does not show in advance the destination of his call
on our lives. Schedules and budgets may have to be adjusted if I
obey him. Step by step I must trust God in faith and obey his daily
guidance. His rewards are always greater than my costs…
I truly thank God for my own family, my
wife Dora, daughters Karen and Kathy, grandchildren Katelyn, Kerri, and
Noah, a son in law Wally, all cherished by me as a gift from God.. If you
are looking for a people (The Church) that love the Lord, visit with us
