WINTERS CHAPEL BAPTIST CHURCH

About Us

HISTORY OF THE CHURCH...

In the 1960's a small group of Christians met in their homes in the Doraville suburb of Atlanta. As the group grew, they met in a commercial building and then eventually bought and built a Sanctuary at the present property where it stands at the intersection of Winters Chapel Road and Spalding Drive. Several of the families mortgaged their homes in order to provide the funds for this building. After this humble beginning, two major additions were later made.

Many fine ministers have served the congregation through the years. Reverend J. Dan Frost has been the Pastor since 2008. He brings years of experience and leadership to the congregation, which has responded well and is growing in number 

PASTOR'S CORNER...


Pastor J. Dan Frost


 Jesus said, as recorded by Mathew 16:24-26:

Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come

after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross and

follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it:

and  whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

For what is a man profited if he shall gain the whole

world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man

give in exchange for his soul?”

 

Luke’s Gospel (9:3) adds to this thought by stating that we are to take up the cross “daily” and follow Jesus.  Christ is making the bearing of a cross the condition of discipleship, for those who would follow him.

First, we must “deny” our self. What does this mean?  When Peter denied Jesus he said, “I do not know this man.”  Denying our self means that we act as though we do not exist. “Let self be slain, let Jesus reign within my heart always.” The old hymn puts it.

Second, we must “take up our cross”. This means we must face difficult things to show our loyalty to God. It means enduring the worst anyone can do to us for the sake of being true to God. It means that we must spend our lives and not hoard and save our lives, our energies. We do not ask, “How much can I get?” but “How much can I give?”

Third, simply follow the Lord daily. Yes, in the words of the chorus we sing:

Lead me Lord…. I will follow…..Lead me, Lord…..I will go.

You have called me….I will answer…  Lead me Lord…I will go.”
