Greetings From Pastor & First Lady

“But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.” (2 Cor 4:7)


We greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is with great joy that we welcome you to the New Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church (WS, NC) website.


As Pastor and First Lady, we pray fervently for unparalleled breakthroughs in the lives of our sisters and brothers in Christ. We know that the Lord has uniquely designed us in His image and customized our spiritual purposes according to His will.  So as His masterpieces, we all must study His word, attune our ears to His voice and bask in His radiant presence in order to be more like Him. We are “containers” of God’s light and glory; therefore, we must let our light shine so others may see our good works but glorify our Father in heaven

(Matt 5:16).


Moreover, as Pastor and First Lady, we stand firmly on the word of God, believing in our hearts that lives will be changed, prayers will be answered, gifts will be manifested and people will be propelled into a greater realm of ministry for the kingdom. We know that iron sharpens iron, so we unite together with the body of Christ and share the collective strength of our faith. God has illuminated our path with His divine light and freely given us abundant life through Christ.  As stated in 2 Peter 1:3, His divine power has given us everything we need for a godly life through our knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and goodness.


In closing, we invite you to open your heart and mind to receive what the Lord has for you during this season. Remember that God uses ordinary people to do extraordinary things. So we hope that you yield your gifts and talents to Him, reflect on His goodness, and allow Him to have His way in your life. It is our deepest desire that you be filled with unspeakable joy and that God’s richest blessings be abundantly yours.


Yours in Christ,


Rev. Ronald E. Speas and Dr. Soncerey M. Speas

Pastor and First Lady, New Jerusalem Missionary Baptist Church
