…..And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

Colossians 3:17


The mission of the Deaconess Ministry shall be to serve as female spiritual servants; leaders and lay persons for the Pastor and Jerusalem Baptist Church members and to spiritually educate by evangelizing to the unsaved and unchurched throughout the community.

 …..I command unto you Phoebe our sister, which is a servant of the church which is at Cenchrea: That ye receive her in the Lord, as becometh saints, and that ye assist her in whatever business she hath need of you: for she hath been a succourer of many and of myself also.

Romans 16:1-2
