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.”
What is God really like? Many people have many ideas. The Bible says about Jesus, “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being…” (Hebrews 1.3). We are assured that Jesus is the One who can reveal the true God to us, both in the way he lived and in the things he taught. Here in Luke 15, Jesus gives us what many consider the most beautiful picture in the Bible of what God is really like.
