Something About Us
Having accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and recognizing that certain duties can be performed best in a fellowship, we covenant to walk together as members of Christ’s Church Brotherly Love. We believe it to be the mission of the Brotherly Love to proclaim His Gospel to all mankind and to strive for the realization of the Kingdom of God.
Therefore, as members of the Brotherly Love, we will endeavor to understand one another and to sympathize with each other in temptation and affliction.
We promise: to work and pray for our church; to attend its meetings; to contribute regularly to its support and to the world outreach of our denomination; to study the Bible and to maintain a program of Christian Education; to encourage our Pastors by our prayers and to accept quietly the decisions of the majority of the members.
We, furthermore, covenant together to give a good witness for Jesus Christ in our daily occupations; and recognizing our duties of Christian citizenship we will cooperate with other churches and agencies against all forms of evil.
May the power of the Holy Spirit enable us to do all things to the Glory of God, our Father. Amen.
Pastor Martin was born and raised in Sacramento, CA. At age 18, he traveled throughout USA and Europe
Pastor Martin was serving in local independent Baptist churches, studying foreign languages, and getting experience in the ministry. It was on this trip that he met his future wife, Zsuzsanna, while out soul-winning in the streets of Munich, Bavaria. He eventually led her to the Lord, and they were married shortly thereafter. They have been married for over 16 years, and God has blessed them with 9 beautiful children.
Pastor Martin started Brotherly Love Church on December 25, 2005. He holds no college degree but has well over 140 chapters of the Bible memorized word-for-word, including approximately half of the New Testament. Today, most churches are started by Bible colleges. However, the Bible makes it clear that the church is the pillar and ground of the truth, not a school. Faithful Word Baptist Church is a totally independent church, and Pastor Martin was sent out by an independent church to start it the old-fashioned way by knocking doors and winning souls to Christ.
