Fred O. Pitts
Fred O. Pitts became the Pastor of Ancient City Baptist Church in July 2017. Although life in the 21st century is complex, he believes the purpose of life can be summed up more simply in the answers Jesus gave when asked the greatest of the commandments: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” Pastor Fred says, “The primary call in my life is seeking first the kingdom of God through pastoring and teaching. My passion is teaching God’s word in a manner that is both understandable and relevant. Primary emphases in my ministry are compassion and encouragement.”
Who is Jesus? On that first Palm Sunday, the crowds cheered, "Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the Name of the Lord." By Friday, the chant of the crowd had changed to "Crucify him!" Why the quick change? How could this happen? The people then made one or both of two glaring errors in answering the question, “Who is Jesus?” Could we be making the same mistakes? What do you say—who is Jesus?
