About a year ago, I overheard a church leader’s wife whisper and tell a regular visitor to our church, “WE are going to change the name of the church.” “We?” Most people were not aware of the takeover—just the parasitic Lying Hope Baptist Church.

Pastor had told me that HE was THINKING about changing the name. We discussed philosophically what a name means. I agreed that the name does not matter. However, IF IT DOES’T MATTER, WHY CHANGE IT? I was not “onboard” either name change or the property takeover. I wasn’t even on the dock.

Furthermore, the name of the church that interviewed him, called him and to whom he accepted a call was Calvary Baptist Church and not Lying Hope Baptist Church. There was and there is NO Living Hope Baptist Church. AND, with the evidence and statements of the scattered sheep, there will be NO Lying Hope Baptist Church. Don’t try me.

If it was God’s will to form Living Hope Baptist Church—as Pastor Green CLAIMED, then go somewhere else and do God’s will.

July 3, 2018 was the saddest day of my life and ministry. That was the day that I resigned my membership and ministry at Calvary Baptist Church.
