“Visitors and guest can expect a traditional service with worship that includes both time-honored hymns as well as newer contemporary songs. Though the younger children go to their own age appropriate classes, they get a puppet show before they leave, hearing the same message as what the pastor is about to deliver in his sermon.

Led by Pastor Gene Smith for the past seven years, Eternal Faith Baptist Church holds onto a heritage of faith, family, worship, loving God, and loving people. Pastor Smith brings messages of faith in Christ, hope, promise, and obedience to the Gospel. When I visited, he preached a message on the gift of grace. “His grace is greater than all of our sin,” he told his congregation. His message emphasized forgiveness and redemption not only for the people within ear shot, but for everybody. “Jesus Christ did not die for the sins of a few people; he died for the sins of all mankind.” At the end of his message, he prayed over everyone in the church. He then invited anyone who wanted to come up front for prayer and/or baptism to do so. He offers an opportunity to not only hear a message, but to respond to one. “Will you say yes to His offer of salvation?”      — The Blackland Reporter
