From the Pastor’s Desk

 Welcome From Pastor Freeman

  I am very pleased that you decided to stop here at our website. During this age of cyber-virtuosity, when we have the ability to span the globe and move from domain to domain with the click of the mouse, it energizes me to know that from the millions of sites that you could visit, you stopped here at Blackhorse Baptist Church. I do not believe it is a coincidence and I am extremely glad that you’re here and you could not have picked a better time! We understand that people have issues and we are a body that believes God is bigger than our issues.

Power that is the theme I want to focus on; nothing works without it. No plan or idea ever lives beyond the confines of your heart and mind without it. Both in the natural and the spiritual realms we need power. The very computer that you are using requires power to gain and maintain your entry into this website. Power is essential, necessary and fundamental.

Jesus said, in Matthew 28:18, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.” He affirms and establishes himself as the source of our power; there is no ancillary deposit of power elsewhere. It’s in Him. He told his followers in Luke 24:49 “…tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.” because He never intended them, nor us by extension, to be impotent or ineffective. His word and His promise is that “we shall receive power after that the Holy Ghost is come upon us …” (Acts 1:8a). We have His word and we have His Spirit, the Holy Ghost.

Do you want power? Let me encourage you to invest your energy in the Word of God so that you can obtain his guidance and instructions. While you examine the depths of His scriptures and pursue the delights of His Spirit, allow this website to be a catalyst of the winning combination, the one-two punch to secure all your victories in Him! The Word and the Spirit!

 It is my privilege to serve you as Pastor of Blackhorse Baptist Church and I am certain you will find support and assistance here at our website.  If you are in the Ravenna area, please visit us at the Blackhorse Baptist Church.  We welcome you with open arms!
