About Our Pastor
Whenever driving along Route 45 in Mullica Hill, New Jersey,
you are bound to catch a glimpse of a charming, white,
two-story church known as the Mullica Hill Baptist Church.
At its Southern location it oversees a row of antique shops
and boutiques. The church's outward appearance is inviting,
and once inside you will notice the appealing worshipful
tone of the stained glass windows adorning the main
sanctuary. "It's what's inside that counts," as the old
adage says, and here is where God's message is delivered
with great fervor each week by Pastor Alfred McLeod.
Pastor McLeod has a
didactic approach to the teaching of
God's Word and presents it with unrestricted passion and
energy. He has a high regard for the Bible and conveys its
truth by explicating a few verses at a time. One need not
expect to get a light sampling or "taste" of God's word.
Pastor McLeod's messages are complete "meals" for spiritual
appetites to feast upon.
Pastor McLeod supports scriptural passages by drawing on
evidence provided through other portions of Scripture to
uphold its themes and messages, and thereby, shows that the
Bible is consistent in its teaching. He also mingles humor,
science, logic, and history to enhance, explain, and enforce
biblical principles. While many churches are content to
tread lightly on God's word by presenting sermons that are
easy-on-the-ears, Pastor McLeod's approach is that of a
straight-shooter. His intention is to present an accurate
picture of the sinfulness of man before a holy and righteous
God. People need the truth that comes straight from God so
they can understand their own depravity and their need for
the life saving, soul cleansing salvation that is only
offered through God's Son, Jesus Christ.
The messages that are taught at Mullica Hill Baptist Church
are as old as time and eternity. That is because they are
based on the eternal word of God, and yet, touches the heart
of people throughout every era. This is due to our human
tendencies which are the same today as in the time of the
biblical writings. Today, as always, our striving with our
emotions, desires, and achievements can lead us far from our
heavenly Father who loves us. Pastor McLeod lifts Scripture
from off the pages of the Bible and establishes its
relevance within our modern world. He explains that we can
be brought near to God through Jesus Christ our Savior. He
presents personal applications to be observed and
established as an integral part of our daily relationships
so we learn how to react to people and circumstances as
earthly representatives of God's Heavenly Kingdom.
There is always something new to glean from the Bible's
timeless pages. God's word is truth, and the pastor's
messages are true to God's word.
