The Scriptures

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. It is a perfect treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy. It reveals the principles by which God judges us, and therefore is, and will remain to the end of the world the true center of Christian union, and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation.

.

God

There is one and only one living and true God. …The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.

God the Father

God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. …God is Father in truth to those who become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ.

God the Son

Christ is the eternal Son of God. In His incarnation as Jesus Christ, He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. …He honored the divine law by His personal obedience, and in His substitutionary death on the cross, He made provision for the redemption of men from sin.

God the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. …He exalts Christ. He convicts men of sin, of righteousness and of judgment. …He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.

.

Man

Man is the special creation of God, in His own image. He created them male and female as the crowning work of His creation. …By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. … The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man in His own image, and in that Christ died for man; therefore every person of every race possesses dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.

Salvation

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification.

God’s Purpose of Grace

Election is the gracious purpose of God, according to which He regenerates, justifies, sanctifies, and glorifies sinners. …All true believers endure to the end. Those whom God has accepted in Christ, and sanctified by His Spirit will never fall away from the state of grace, but shall persevere to the end.

The Church

A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel, observing the two ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. Each congregation operates under the Lordship of Christ through democratic processes. In such a congregation each member is responsible and accountable to Christ as Lord. Its scriptural officers are pastors and deacons. While both men and women are gifted for service in the church, the office of pastor is limited to men as qualified by Scripture.

Baptism & the Lord’s Supper

Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water. …It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Saviour, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.  The Ordinance of Baptism is observed for those who have trusted Jesus Christ as their Savior. We practice Believer’s Baptism by immersion as commanded in the Gospel of Matthew in response to the Great Commission. They are baptized in the name of The Father, and The Son and The Holy Spirit. The Ordinance of Baptism is a picture of what has already taken place in a believer’s heart; it is their first act of discipleship in obedience to His divine command. Baptism does not save the person, salvation has already occurred. This picture is a public testimony that they have been buried with Christ in the likeness of His death, and raised to walk in newness of life.

Our Minister

Pastor Gene Gregory

At Mission Possible Camp, we have three things we ask the young people at the beginning of each week. We ask them:

MPC Cadets, who are you? To this they answer, “I am a child of God. Created in His image. I am an Ambassador of Jesus Christ. I am my Savior’s servant and my brother’s keeper.”

MPC Cadets, what is your goal? “My goal is to love the Lord my God with all my heart, with all my soul and with all my might. I will love my neighbor as myself.”

MPC Cadets, what is your mission? “My mission is to make disciples of all nations.”

It a nutshell, that’s how I see myself. I am a child of God, created in His image. I am an ambassador of Jesus Christ. I am my Savior’s servant and my brother’s keeper. It is my goal to love the Lord my God with all my heart, with all my soul and with all my might. I want to love my neighbor as myself. It is my mission to make disciples of all nations, or as another has said, I want to go to heaven and take as many people with me as I can.

I am also blessed to be the husband of Gladys Gregory, and the Dad of Andrew Gregory.

I began this journey in Jacksonville, Florida, where I was born, but have lived in Enterprise, FL most of my life. I graduated from DeLand High School, Seminole Community College (now Seminole State College), Northeast Louisiana University (now the University of Louisiana at Monroe), and Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary. I have also attended Reformed Theological Seminary in Oviedo, FL.

In pursuit of the mission of making disciples of all nations, the Lord has had me serve as a youth pastor in Cherry Valley Arkansas, and as a pastor in Ridgely, TN and Locke Station, MS. He currently has me serving as the pastor of the First Baptist Church of Lake Monroe and River of Life Church in Enterprise, FL.

I am also currently an on-call chaplain with Fish Memorial Hospital in Orange City, and as a Law Enforcement Chaplain with the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office.

“When our trials come, when we feel pain and suffering, when our tears flow again, it is our joy and comfort to lift our faces heavenward and to go on, standing on the promises of God.”

W. A. Criswell

“We must remember that the shortest distance between our problems and their solutions is the distance between our knees and the floor.”

Charles Stanley

“I believe the Bible is exactly what it is. It’s the word of revelation to us from God himself. I don’t fully comprehend and understand [it all], because the Bible is a revelation of an infinite god, and no finite person is ever going to fully understand it. If they do, their god is too small.”

Mike Huckabee

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
