Prison / Jail
“For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.” <Matthew 25:35-36>
Life Baptist Church is all about getting the gospel out. For over 20 years, we have had the opportunity to preach in the local jail every Sunday. Our goal is to preach deliverance to the captive soul. Many souls are incarcerated within the Department of Correction who need the Lord. Thank God for this open door!
We are honored to have missionaries Lance and Elyne Neal as members of our church. Bro. Lance and his wife served for 7 years in the country of Papua New Guinea. There they saw hundreds come to know the Lord. They established several churches that are still going strong today with national pastors. Since his return from Papua New Guinea, Bro. Lance has been a missionary to the prisons. He is currently serving as missionary chaplain at MacDougall Correctional Institution in Ridgeville, South Carolina. He uses this opportunity to daily preach the gospel, to hold regular Bible studies for the inmates and to witness from cell to cell. Many have trusted the Lord thru this ministry.
