Fred O. Pitts
Fred O. Pitts became the Pastor of Ancient City Baptist Church in July 2017. Although life in the 21st century is complex, he believes the purpose of life can be summed up more simply in the answers Jesus gave when asked the greatest of the commandments: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Pastor Fred says, “The primary call in my life is seeking first the kingdom of God through pastoring and teaching. My passion is teaching God’s word in a manner that is both understandable and relevant. Primary emphases in my ministry are compassion and encouragement.”
Is the idea of life after death too good to be true? Apparently, some thought so in the Corinthian church. And some think so today. They reduce faith in Christ to little more than a psychological lift, a crutch for those who can't face the rigors of life. Paul would have none of that. He said that resurrection is central to faith in Christ.
