About New Pleasant Grove MBC

"Loving God, Loving People, and Leading others to do the same."

Organized in 1928 with approximately 107 members, the New Pleasant Gove Missionary Baptist Church began to build a foundation upon the core principles of Worship, Ministry, Evangelism, Fellowship, and Discipleship, with the mission for its community to Love God, Love People, and Lead others to do the same. In the spirit reflective of the evangelistic mission, the church motto, “I must work the works of Him that sent me while it is day, for night cometh when no man can work,” John 9:4, was adopted, reflecting the works of a diverse and dedicated membership.

Hailing from every walk of life, NPG Missionary Baptist Church members are not only committed to spreading the word of God within their own community but they are commissioned with the undertaking to spread the Gospel across the Greater Houston Area and beyond. As the church family continues to be led by the Spirit of God, you are invited to join the journey and walk together with us in fulfillment of God’s will. It is our hope that you will think of New Pleasant Grove Missionary Baptist Church as we do. We clearly see ourselves and our mission in the church logo that is well represented throughout our building and materials. Together, all elements yield a vivid physical representation of work---Christ’s work for our salvation and our work for others, with the simple reminder that our duty is perpetual and has no end.

Join us, worship with us, and grow with us, as together, we share in the message of hope that ultimately brings us closer in our walk of Faith through Jesus Christ.

Our Beliefs

"There is one Body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called into one hope of your calling: One Lord, One faith, and One baptism; One God, and Father of all, who is above all, and in you all." Ephesians 4:4-6

About the Bible: We believe that the Bible is God's Word. As such, it is true without any mixture of error and is the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and opinions should be tried.

About God: We believe that there is one living and true God Who has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and Who is worthy of all possible honor, worship, and praise. As Creator, Redeemer, and Ruler of heaven and earth. He is expressibly glorious in holiness and love.

About Jesus Christ: We believe in the full humanity and deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, death on the cross for our sins, bodily resurrection and ascension, present ministry of intercession of believers, and His personal and visible return in power and glory.

About the Holy Spirit: We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit Who regenerates unbelievers, the evidence of which is repentance, faith, newness of life. We believe He indwells believers, enabling them to live a godly life, transforming them to the likeness of Christ, and keeping them by power of God until the day of Jesus Christ.

About Man: We believe that man was created in the image of God and was intended to have fellowship with God. However, since Adam, all men are sinners by nature and by choice, and are under the just condemnation of the Holy and Righteous God.

About Salvation: We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone, Who is the only and all-sufficient Savior and the only Mediator between God and man; and that the Gospel of salvation should be shared with every person in the world.

About the Church: We believe that the church, the Body of Christ, is a group of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the Gospel. The two ordinances of the Church are Baptism by immersion in water and the Lord's Supper, a provision of bread and fruit of the vine representing the body and blood of Christ.

HOW CAN I BE ASSURED OF MY SALVATION?

Believe God’s Word

Based upon what you feel is the source of your lack of assurance; examine the following scriptures to see what God’s word says about it.

Psalms 103:13; Job 14:17; John 10:28-30; Ephesians 1:13 – 14; Romans 10:13; Luke 15:7.

Dedicate Yourself to God

Uncertainty thrives among those who are uncommitted. Full devotion to God gives you confidence that you know Him. (2 Peter 1:5-11)
