New Samaritan Baptist Church » Church History [cached]

Rev. Charlie Cummings, Jr., served as New Samaritan's Interim Pastor from 1992 until the call was extended to Reverend Michael V. Kelsey, Sr. who became the third Pastor of our great church in November 1993.

Over the past ten years, Bishop Kelsey, an anointed preacher and teacher, has guided the New Samaritan Family in tremendous spiritual growth and development.The undeniable impact of Bishop Kelsey's leadership can be seen in the corporate worship experience on Sunday mornings and in the formation of multiple ministries who seek to serve in divine order.
Not only is the NSBC family maturing spiritually but we are growing numerically.Currently, New Samaritan reaches many souls for Jesus Christ by employing non traditional outreach methods such as: offering the invitation to discipleship at every opportunity (Bible Study, Homegoing Celebrations, etc.); a relaxed dress standard that allows everyone to attend church in comfort and without criticism; and sponsoring evangelistic events like the ‘Gospel Explosion' block party and Sunday Night Celebrations which have a strong outreach component.
Bishop Michael V. KelseyThe Vision God has given New Samaritan through Bishop Kelsey is enormous.
Bishop Kelsey is a true example of a Christ-centered leader with a servant's heart and he is boldly leading New Samaritan in the fulfillment of our Vision to "Equip the Saints to Evangelize the World."
