Meet Our Pastor
Bro. Paul D. Mason
Bio: Bro. Paul and his wife Donna have been at Philadelphia sense January 2009. They are here for one reason. God's eternal calling.
Brother Paul was called to preach the Word when he was 14 years young at Fairfield Highlands Baptist Church, Midfield, AL. That calling never left, God's calling never does.
After many years and several music minister and secular jobs later, his heart began to burn by the power of God's Spirit. While a deacon at Cottage Hill Baptist Church, and under the leadership of Bro Jerry Sherrell and Bro Jim Romine, Paul Mason could avoid the calling no longer.
Bro Jerry had preached a powerful message and after that service Bro. Jim cornered him and asked him a life changing, God revealing question. "Have you not realized that your real calling may not be music?"
The Lord had used these Godly men to reintroduce the original calling, "Preach the Word"!
Now, like his father before him, and as Peter and John told the council at Jerusalem,
"Acts 4:19-20 But Peter and John answered and said to them, "Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. 20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard."
Until ALL have heard about the Love, Mercy and Grace of God!
Romans 10:14 14How then shall they call on Him in whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in Him of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher?
11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, 12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works. 15 Speak these things, exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no one despise you.
