Welcome to New Testament Missionary Baptist
Moving from Membership to Discipleship
A. Willis, Jr.
The New Testament Missionary Baptist
Church is a unique body of believers
created by God, united by His Son, Jesus Christ, and indwelt
by the Holy Spirit. Our purpose is to worship and glorify God
and to reach out to individuals and families in the community,
the city, and the county with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
To the weak became I as weak, that I may gain the weak. I am made
all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
I Corinthians 9:22
For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there
am I in the midst of them.
To be doers
of God's Holy Word, by speaking His Word in all our circumstances, by edifying
one another in unconditional Christian love. To provoke one another unto to good
works in a multicultural church.
I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the
vocation wherewith ye are called, with all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering,
fore bearing one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit
in the bond of peace.
Pastor Rev. B.A. Willis' Christian Experience
Pastor, Rev. Bernard A. Willis, Jr., often called the "gentle giant"
by his preach brethren, is the oldest son of Deacon Bernard A. Willis
Sr. and is a loving husband married to Jacqueline R. Green for 25
blessed years. They have been blessed with two beautiful children,
Naomi Nicole Willis and Timothy Daniel Willis.
grew up here in San Antonio as a member of Jacob's Chapel United
Methodist Church. He accepted Christ at an early age.
after marrying Jacqueline, they set forth as man and woman looking
for a church home, understanding that if their marriage was going
to stand the test of time, Christ must be in their lives.
In 1981, on
a New Year's night, Bro. and Sister Willis attended a watch night
service at Bethany First Baptist
Church, which at that time services
were being held in the Ella Austin Community Center.
On the following
Sunday of the New Year they attended a morning service at Bethany
and became members. Bro. Bernie was soon baptized by Dr. Benson
at Mt. Mariah Baptist Church in 1982 and, in 1988, he was ordained
as a Deacon of the church. In 1992, The Holy Spirit moved on
the heart of Bro. Bernie to move on to Good New MBC where he
announced his calling to the ministry in 1996.
In 1998, he
was invited by Deacon William Lank and the pastoral search committee
of New Testament to preach every other Sunday. Soon afterwards,
and after much prayer, the committee asked Rev. Willis if he
would become their fifth Pastor of New Testament.
at his Christian experience, having joined Bethany when it was
only two years old and later joining Good New on its Second anniversary,
Rev. Willis realizes that God was preparing him all along for
the job at hand here at New Testament.
In his own
words, I will forever be thankful to God for Dr. Benson and Bishop
K. W. McIntyre for the roles they both played in my life.
