Hello I am Pastor Rickey and this is my wife Amanda. We would like to welcome you to Pleasant Grove Piney Baptist Church, where we love Jesus and each other. We have very simple beliefs: One True God, One True Savior Jesus Christ, and One True Word. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1. Jesus is the Word that became flesh to die for the sin of the world and to rise again unto Victory so that you and I could be saved! Praise God!
I believe the word of God is true and infallible. I believe the Bible and the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only source from which preaching and teaching should come. Jesus Christ the Son of God is the only One who can save our souls and forgive us of our sins. I believe we will be held accountable for every word we say and deed we do. This is why I believe so strongly in studying God’s Word with detail from Genesis to Revelation. God tells us to love one another even as He has loved us, and to have the mind of Christ.
I will only preach God’s Word which is the way Jesus ministered while here on Earth. I believe the Word of God should be preached with truth, power, conviction, and love. A Godly church is active in worship and spreading the Gospel of Jesus to the community. I would be honored to serve God with you. May God bless you in the days ahead. Thank you for your time and remember: Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and His righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. (Matthew 6:33)
God blessed me with the call to preach His Word when I was fourteen years old. I received my license into the gospel ministry on October 7, 2007, and a formal ordination in 2009. God has allowed me to see many people Saved and Baptized. I give God all the glory for all He has done for my wife and I.
Amanda and I were married on April 30, 2010 and I can honestly say that second only to my salvation, she is the best thing God has ever given to me; she truly is a Godly woman. Amanda and I were blessed with the birth of our only son December 8th 2015. Born at 29 weeks and only weighing slightly over 2 pounds. Our son spent 94 days straight at East TN children’s hospital. He is our miracle and is doing great praise God! We would love to have you come and worship God with us at Pleasant Grove Piney Baptist Church.
God bless you,
Pastor Rickey and Amanda Hardin
