Meet Our Pastor : Mike McCartney
I was born and raised in Steubenville, Ohio. At age 28, I was radically saved through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have been married to my wonderful wife Tracey and we have two daughters. I attended Sothern Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary and earned an Associates Degree in Divinity. I returned back to Georgia and started a church where I completed B.A. and M.D.I.iv in Apologetics at Luther Rice Seminary.
I have over 20 years of experience as a senior pastor in two different churches. I also lead a prison ministry while in Gwinett Co., Georgia. Throughout my experience, I have led by the calling of the Lord Jesus Christ in my life, and I devote myself to studying God’s Word in order to shepherd His people. I have an extreme passion and burden for the Truth and to reach the lost. I am a teaching pastor and am able to defend God’s Word through the application of apologetics. I adhere to the Baptist Faith and Message (2000) as a statement of Faith, and I hold to the Christian principles set forth in the Bible. Therefore, wherever I am called, I will seek to fulfill the call to witness and spread the Gospel.
Church Secretary: Bo Harmon Booth
I am originally from Belfry, Ky. I now serve as the secretary here at the First Baptist Church of Belfry. I am willing and able to schedule One-Calls to our congregation to inform them of immediate or special prayer requests and about upcoming events. Also, I can take and add prayer requests for the church on the prayer request lists each week.
