The Ultimate Call

November 21, 2011

“If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me”


Jesus ask us to deny ourselves and take up our cross and follow him. What have you given up to follow Christ? The disciples denied themselves; their work, their love ones, families and friends to follow Christ. The key to obedience in Christ is yielding to the Holy Spirit which dwells in all Christians. Submit to God the Father, God the Son & God the Holy Spirit. He wants our total dependence on HIM! Our obedience to God is the highest praise or worship to HIM. We can’t change how we receive our salvation to HIM it never changes but, the when and where changes by denying ourselves our vices our lifestyle, our little gods for the ultimate relationship!

About Pastor P.M. Smith

As a youngster, P.M. Smith, desired to be a lawyer. But after completing law school and achieving success as a formidable criminal attorney, there was still a void in his heart. He fulfilled the call on his life and left the legal profession in 1983 to preach the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and serve as full-time pastor of Huber Memorial Church in Baltimore, Maryland. Winning cases was something he did well, but winning souls for the Lord is what he does best!


Under his leadership, the church has developed a strong and vital teaching ministry for all ages and a Christian co-educational school, H.O.P.E. Academy. He is the recipient of numerous awards and citations, and is a visible shepherd and servant in the community. He and his wife Delores have two children, Tehma & Ade.
