A Message From Our Pastor
Thank you for your interest in Lukfata Baptist Church.  We are a loving family of believers who desire to see the Lord Jesus exalted in our hearts and lives.  It’s my personal desire to faithfully teach and preach the word of God in such a way as to encourage and challenge each person in their walk with the Lord.  I would also like to encourage every believer to invest the gifts and talents God has bestowed upon them in the work of His Kingdom.  I believe that every born-again believer has the opportunity to be a minister for the glory of God and the furtherance of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
I would love the opportunity to meet you in person.  So, let me personally extend and invitation to you and your family to join us this week as we gather together to worship the Lord in spirit and in truth.  It would be my great privilege to simply get to know you and to help you to know Christ.
I pray that God would richly bless you,
Pastor Chip Pinkerton
