Elder Kerry Lathrop

Elder Kerry Lathrop I have found no greater peace on this earth than to be in God’s house, where the blessings of God fill my longing heart with the  gospel trumpet of salvation for ruined sinners. I have spent, in my life, far too many years away from the blessings of God and his manifested presence. I know what it is like to be “out in the cold world away from God”. I have found God’s church to be a place for the weary pilgrim and stranger in this earth who seek a refuge and hiding place from the adversities and tribulations that are ever around us.

Psalms 132:13-16 states, “For the Lord hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation. This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell: for I have desired it. I will abundantly bless her provision: I will satisfy her poor with bread. I will also clothe  her priests with salvation: and her saints shall shout aloud for joy”.

God’s Church is made up of those seeking rest from laboring and being heavy laden with the burdens and sins of this life. We desire only to glorify God Almighty for his free and sovereign grace. Eternal salvation is not dependent in part on what I or you do, but solely upon the blood shed of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. His plan of salvation is sure and steadfast, “For he  shall save his people from their sins”. If  you are in need of the comfort and assurance that the gospel can bring; declaring the finished work of Jesus Christ, we invite you to come and worship the Lord with us at Mountain Home Primitive Baptist Church.

May the grace of God be with you,

Elder Kerry Lathrop
