The friendly church, where everybody is somebody and the Spirit meets the Soul
WE BELIEVE that the Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired; that it has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth without any mixture of error for its matter. WE BELIEVE that there is one, and only one, living and true God, an infinite, intelligent Spirit, whose name is Jehovah, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth; inexpressibly glorious in holiness, and worthy of all possible praise, honor and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; equal in every divine perfection, and executing distinct but harmonious offices in the great work of redemption. WE BELIEVE that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace through faith; that Jesus Christ is the Son of God; who by the appointment of the Father, freely took upon him our nature, yet without sin; honored the divine law by his personal obedience, and by his death made a full atonement for our sins; that having risen from the dead, he is now enthroned in heaven, sitting at the right hand of the Father. WE BELIEVE that Christian baptism is the immersion in water of a believer, in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost; to show forth in a solemn and beautiful emblem, our faith in the crucified, buried, and risen Savior. We believe we should observe the Lord’s Supper, in which the members of the church, by the sacred use of bread and wine, are to commemorate together the sufferings and crucifixion of Jesus Christ; preceded always by solemn self-examination. WE BELIEVE that once a sinner receives the new birth, he/she should assemble regularly with other believers, and should join in corporate worship, praise, study and service to the glory of God and the edification of the body of Christ, His church; whereby he/she may grow into “an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”
Mission: GMOBC exists to edify, encourage, exalt, and equip its body of believers to become like Christ and to evangelize non-believers throughout the world in a way that is socially relevant and doctrinally unadulterated to increase the Kingdom of Jesus Christ.
Happy are those who are strong in the Lord!

Join us tomorrow, Sunday, March 22, 2020, on Facebook Live. COVID-19 (Coronavirus) may prohibit us from worshipping together in our church sanctuary, but God is Omnipresent! God has blessed us with the technology to fellowship together where we are.
Our service will begin at 11:00 AM with songs of praise and worship and at 11:15 Pastor Lionell Alexander will lead us further in the service.
For those who don’t have Facebook Live availability, join us via conference call at 712-775-8963 (toll-free with cellphone); the conference code is 471071.
A message from the pastor:
On Thursday, March 19, Governor Abbott issued an Executive Order for the state of Texas that went into effect at midnight, March 20. The executive order calls for a prohibition of gathering of 10 or more people. Although churches are exempt from the executive order because of freedom of religion, the decisions of Dallas County and the city of Dallas do apply to churches (no community gathering of 50 or more people). Based on the governor's executive order, the local requirements and my responsibility and desire to ensure the health and safety of the members and visitors of our church, we will not hold services at Greater Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday, March 22 or Sunday, March 29. Ministry meetings, including prayer, bible study and choir rehearsals will also be cancelled during this two week period, beginning tomorrow, March 21.
We are planning on having worship service on Sunday, March 22, via Facebook Live and conference call (for those without social media capabilities). We are working on the logistics right now; the schedule will be posted and communicated on or before noon tomorrow, March 21. Stay tuned...
Confession is good for the soul.
Are you looking for Him?
Here is a summary of Pastor Alexander's sermon, Philosophies, Fables and Foolishness: Make the Main Thing the Main Thing (Colossians 2:16-23:
Jesus completes us!
As Christians, the totality of our existence is firmly grounded and rooted in Jesus Christ. In Him, we have been set free from the legalistic stronghold of the world. We will not be pulled into the false ideologies of man-made wisdom that produces man-made results which are empty of any substance. There are no rules to govern us in our spiritual walk aside from what we have been given through the Word of God. We are totally free in Jesus!
In Paul's letter to the Christians at Colossae he addressed the problem of them being attacked/invaded by false teaching. As Paul wrote, we are not to be concerned with man-made legalistic ordinances and restrictions in our worship. Looking 'spiritual' is one thing; living a life that is wholly acceptable to God through Jesus Christ is something else.
Points to consider:
-What is in Him controls our actions (vv. 16, 17)
-What is not of Him should have no control over us (vv. 18-22)
-What is necessary for us is found only through Him (v. 23)
Join us tomorrow, Sunday!
Jesus IS Lord!!!
We dedicate ourselves to kingdom building. We make plans on building a 'grand' temple for God. We consecrate the building materials. We declare we will have a grand place of worship. But things seem to get in the way. We build our homes. We pursue our professions. We take care of our families and the affairs of our worlds. We live our lives. Did we forget about kingdom building and the temple or did we decide 'it's not time to complete the work yet?' The same things occured during the post-exilic period in Jerusalem. Join us Sunday moring, March 1, at 11:00 AM, as Pastor Alexander brings a message on God's respond to the people's inactivity in rebuilding His temple, from the first chapter of Haggai, "What About Me?".
Summary of Pastor Alexander's message, 'Wake Up!' (Revelation 3:1-6):
We must return to the work we were called to do. The only thing we can do in our sleep is dream. We cannot perform any kingdom building activities; we cannot move forward from where we were; we cannot affect positive or negative change. In such a state there is no evidence of LIFE. But we are the church! We have been called by God to seek and save the lost. We are to go out…we are to be fishers of men…we are to let our lights shine…we are to be the salt of the earth. In fact, we have done all of these. What is the key in that? It is “…have done”. We may have a reputation based on what we’ve done. The community may be aware of who we are and what we’ve done. We proudly stand on what was. But guess what? Yesterday is gone. It’s time for us to wake up and get back to His work.
Jesus had an indictment against the church at Sardis. There were guilty of inaction. They were asleep, almost to death.
I. Yesterday’s ministries (actions) don’t save souls today
II. We must take our yesterdays and make them our today (…what remains)
III. Our yesterdays will allow us/enable us to be overcomers today
If God has ordained government and we are commanded to submit to such authority, is there a conflict in the life of the believer? Have we become so consumed with this political party or that political party, yet not realized that Government was established by God? The Apostle Paul wrote, "Therefore whoever resists authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who have opposed will receive condemnation upon themselves (Romans 13:2)." Is this possible in today's political climate? Pastor Alexander will bring a message on God and Government, taken from Romans 13:1-5, tomorrow morning, February 2, during our 11:00 AM worship service.

Here’s a summary of Pastor Alexander’s message, ‘A Change of Direction (A Career Change) -Matthew 4:18-22:
When Jesus calls will you answer?
Jesus called His first disciples to leave the life they knew and follow Him. They weren’t drafted; they volunteered. They were not enticed; they were invited. We want to follow Jesus and work for the Kingdom but we, at times, feel we are not ready yet. We feel we are not equipped with what we need to be a worthy disciple of Jesus. If we look at the calling of these first four disciples, as recorded in the gospel of Matthew, we will find they had All they needed to follow Jesus. They were committed to the call. They would receive ‘on the job training’ for this calling.
In these verses, we see:
I. A common people
These four fishermen, Andrew, Simon (Peter), James and John were common men who worked as common fishermen. They met Jesus previous to this day. They had developed a relationship with Him. They were already followers of Jesus in His ministry in Capernaum. They possessed character of one who could be taught by Jesus. This character is not developed in the world but rather by faith. These faithful fishermen displayed the trait that could make differences in peoples’ live for the Kingdom of Heaven.
II. A call to follow
Jesus called these men to change their present occupation. He called them to become a new kind of fishermen. He called them to become fishers of men. He would train them in this occupation. There would be clear and definite instructions on what to do. They would have ‘on-the-job training’ with the Master Fisherman. Jesus speaks to us in a manner we can understand. He talked to these fishermen in a way where they understood His intentions for them.
III. A commitment to the Kingdom
These men did not need time to consider the job description of this new career. They did not weigh such things as salary structure or benefits. Their minds were already made up. They immediately left their occupation and their families to follow Jesus. They forsook earthly rewards for eternal rewards. They gave up what they were familiar with for all that Jesus would teach them for Kingdom work. They gave themselves wholly to the Lord.
Will your ‘drop your nets’ and change direction and follow Jesus?
