Hi my name is Ernest Jones, and I’m the Senior Pastor at Main Street Baptist Church. I’d like to welcome you to our church’s website! I hope you will take the time to browse around and get more familiar with our church…and I also hope that you will pay us a visit sometime soon.
I’ve lived here in Georgetown, Texas for nearly 4 years, and I know that there are some tremendous churches in our community. We don’t claim to be the best church in Georgetown. I know that there are several other churches that are filled with servant-minded people who love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength. I also know that many of these churches are pastored by pure-hearted men and women, whom I have the utmost respect for, and who really do desire to glorify Jesus Christ in every way possible.
The congregation and I here at Main Street are humbled to be part of a community with so many healthy, tremendous, vibrant, Spirit-led, Bible teaching churches. We don’t claim to be the best. Jesus is the best, and we don’t confuse ourselves with Jesus. But…we are a church family that does surprise a great deal of people concerning how friendly and dynamic we are. Main Street Baptist Church is, in my opinion, one of the best kept secrets in Georgetown- and it might be just right for you. But you wouldn’t know that unless you gave us a chance.
It’s like this poor man who cried out to God, “God, help me win the lottery!” He prayed this prayer again and again, year after year…but he would never win. Finally in his old age, and in frustration, he dropped down to his knees and said, “God, this is the last time I’m going to pray this: Please help me win the lottery. Or, at least, let me know WHY you have not allowed me to win??” Suddenly, before the man, there appeared an angel who said, “Please do us a favor and at least buy a lottery ticket!”
You have to play to win. You have to visit us to know. And we really do hope that we will see you sometime soon.
