A Message From Our Pastor
As a pastor, it is my sincere desire to see all people in our community have a church home and to be actively involved in worship. Perhaps you already have a special place of worship and if so, that brings me great joy in knowing that you do, and I would encourage you to continue to attend and support your church home. To God be the glory.
If you are looking for a church to attend, it would bring me great honor if you would visit Progressive Missionary Baptist Church. If you visit us, you will find that our people are friendly and eager to welcome you into our church family. We would love to be your church home if you do not already have one.
1 John 1:7 says, “If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His son, purifies us of all sin.” It is truly our desire to “fellowship” with those in our community.
We have a variety of church services and worship opportunities from which you can choose if you wish.
Know that our doors are open to you, and you would be welcome to visit us at any time. If we can personally be of assistance to you in any way, please do not hesitate to call. Walking in His “light” and hoping to see you soon.
Pastor William E. Wyatt, Sr.
Bringing Forth Progress Through Various Ministries
Progressive Missionary Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas has many vocations to help the various members of our congregation. From the adults who are looking to hone their skills and talents to the youth who need guidance as they grow up, we have many programs that can help.
The Essentials We Believe
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. (Genesis 1:1, 26-27, 3:22; Psalms 90:2; Matthew 28:19; I Peter 1:2; II Corinthians 13:14)
Salvation is God’s free gift to us that we must accept. We can never make up for sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offering of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty.
When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus Christ in faith, we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith. (Romans 5:1, 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9; John 1:12, 14:6; Titus 3:5; Galatians 3:26)
About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal to the Father. Jesus was miraculously conceived and born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on the cross.
After three days, He rose from the dead to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return to Earth one day to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (Matthew 1:22-23; Isaiah 9:6; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; Luke 1:42; I Corinthians 15:3-4; Acts 1:9-11; I Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13)
About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is co-equal to the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. The Spirit lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation, providing him or her with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.
He gives every believer a spiritual gift when he or she is saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily. (II Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13,
14:16-17; Acts 1:8; I Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13, 5:18; Galatians 5:25)
About the Bible
The Bible is God's Word to us, written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the source of Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any error. (II Timothy 1:12, 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Psalms 12:6, 119:105, 160; Proverbs 30:5)
About Human Beings
People are made in the spiritual image of God and to be like Him in character. Therefore, they are the supreme object of God's creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, each of us is marred by an attitude that separates people from God and causes many problems in life. (Genesis 1:27; Psalms 8:3-6; Isaiah 53:6a, 59:1-2; Romans 3:23)
