1924 – 2017

“To GOD be the Glory”

Praise GOD from Whom All Blessings Flow! 

We Thank Him for His Faithfulness to Us!

Scripture: “Praise ye the LORD. Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD. Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore. From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same, the LORD’s name is to be praised.”       Psalm 113:1-3

Greetings, in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,

A church anniversary is a time of celebration, for the years of ministry in which the church has functioned as a part of the Body of Christ.

Glory and thanks be to God, Open Door Missionary Baptist Church is celebrating its 93rd church anniversary. There have been many things that the church has gone through these 93 years, but the Lord has delivered us through them all! When we have faith in God, nothing can stop His work, because our foundation is built on the Rock Jesus and I believe that God has blessed Open Door for that reason, these 93 years!

We will continue to put God first, we will let God direct us as we wait on Him, and He will continue to bless Open Door many more years.

Sister Hopkins and I are excited and praise God for this anniversary as this is my 7th year as the 6th pastor of Open Door Missionary Baptist Church.

I believe that Open Door has been a light in this community for many years from 1924 under Rev. E.D. Berry until this present day.

We praise God for all the saints throughout the years who have worked diligently, sacrificing time and money to keep this church going forward in the name and the work of the Lord.

May God continue to bless us all!
Pastor Joseph Hopkins, III
