    Smile Hello from Winston-Salem, NC

    Hi I'm Shane and this is my first post here. I have been a lurker for a very long time and I'm excited about finally becoming a member! I have been a Christian since 2005 and I started becoming reformed probably two years ago or so.

    Looking forward to some great fellowship here!

    Fast bound in sin and nature’s night;

    My chains fell off, my heart was free,
    I rose, went forth, and followed Thee."

    Where is 121 church?

    I know several solid calvinistic churches in W-S, and I used to live there for a year.

    I will be passing through at the end of May and I could introduce you to other calvi brothers in W-S if you want.

    That would be great! As I have become convinced of the doctrines of grace my wife and I have been looking for a new church home. We were in a Fundamental Baptist KJV only type church.

    1.21 is a new church plant that is currently meeting at Foothills Brewing in downtown W-S. They have a building being prepared on Cherry St. but it may be awhile before it's ready. My wife and I really need to find a church and 1.21 seems to be solid in doctrine. The only other one that I found that we have considered is Twin City Baptist. The Pastor there is from Grace Community Church and is a close friend of John MacArthur.

    I really want to join a solid church so I'm absolutely open to any suggestions.

    I know of several solid churches in Winston-Salem that preach the doctrines of Grace. I lived there for a time.

    I hope to be passing through at the end of May and could introduce you to more calvinistic believers if you want to meet up.

    Hello,
    I have 3 supporting churches in Winston-Salem and I would recommend them all:

    Rosemont Baptist:
    On Clemmonsville road I think. Pastor Mark Reed is a great guy and a friend. The church supports me and a close friend Paul Snider who is also preparing to come serve beside me. They are Calvinistic and Baptist.

    Sovereign Grace Chapel:
    This was our church home for the year we lived in Winston-Salem. It is a black church, and we felt like family with them even with being the only white family in the church. They are multiple elder led and have fire in their sermons. They are calvinistic and Baptist. Elder Warren Burrell is a friend.

    Pilgrim Bible Church.
    A good jogging buddy goes here and this church is pastor by Mike Beasley a graduate of MacArthur’s school. Elder led and expository.

    Also, Twin Cities is a good church I here. I hear the pastor had some folks leave as he preached the truth but good riddance to those.
    Email me at [email protected].

    Around Saturday and then Sunday May 31st we plan to be in W-S and meet with ALL three of these churches. If you meet me, I can introduce you to all of them and you can connect with many fine brothers, all in one day.

    Also google these first 3 churches, they all have websites I believe. I can also email my W-S contacts and have them email you back to help you link up with some calvi brothers.

    Let’s meet up for the Calvy Tour of Winston Salem, courtesy of Pergmeister!

    ‎‎"Ministers of the Gospel, when dispensing the truths of God, must preach home to their own souls, as well as unto others. Sir's, we do not deliver truths or doctrines to you, wherein we ourselves have no manner of concern. No, our own souls are at the stake, and shall either perish or be saved eternally, as we receive or reject these precious truths which we deliver unto you. And truly, it can never be expected that we will apply the truths of God with any warmth or liveliness unto others, unless we first make a warm application thereof to our own souls. And if we do not feed upon these doctrines, and practise these duties, which we deliver to and inculcate upon you, though we preach unto others, we ourselves are but castaways." -- Ebenezer Erskine, "The Assurance of Faith", pg. 8

    Wooohoo, the more the merrier.

    I'll arrive Friday night May 29th, and will be hiking around the Winston Lake on Saturday maybe, and then going to "The Juice Shop" on Stratford, near the Baptist hospital.

    Maybe I'll go egg or TP the old Fundy school I went to also, Piedmont Baptist College (they once had 15 invitations up to the front one time...now, THAT's a lot of verses of "Just as I am...").

    Just drove through Winston Salem pulling a Wisconsin to Greenville NC and back to WI three day road trip. That is a lot of driving. My wife and I love NC and hope to migrate there one day. Looking more towards the Wake Forest area. Glad to have you here.
