The Bible is the most important book in the world because it contains the best news for the world – the gospel of Jesus Christ! For over 50 years, our passion at the Atlanta Bible Baptist Church has been to tell people about God and help them understand His Word.
About Pastor Ray P. Smith
Rev. Ray P. Smith is the senior pastor of the Atlanta Bible Baptist Church. He follows Dr. John McNeal, Jr., the church’s founder and now Pastor Emeritus. Pastor Smith received his Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy from Mercer University Southern School of Pharmacy in Atlanta. He received his Master of Divinity degree from Baptist Bible Seminary in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania.
Pastor Ray delights in teaching the Word of God, explaining its truths with practical illustrations and applications. His passion, to teach the whole counsel of God to minister to the whole person, flows out of his life verse, which says “And Jesus kept increasing in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men” (Luke 2:52). As Jesus grew mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially, so should His followers.
Pastor Ray and his wife, Linda, are the parents of four children, one son-in-law, and two grandchildren.
