According to Pastor Gable,”Martin Springs Baptist Church has been a positive influence in our community for over 140 years. During that time, we have seen two World Wars, the invention of flight and space travel, ice boxes became refrigerators and radios became streaming televisions. However, the one thing that has always remained a constant is the sincerity of the people of Martin Springs.
MSBC is committed to exemplifying that sincerity through our lives and our community. We seek to help people and exhibit true caring in a world that appears to care less and less about each other. As critics have expressed about George Jones, he wasn’t just a singer, he was ‘a sign of unvarnished sincerity.’ If that isn’t high praise, I am not sure what is.”
We invite everyone to join us for this two day event starting on Saturday September 18, and ending Sunday September 19.
