Bill in 'A' capI am pastor emeritus of Grace Baptist Church in Somerset, KY.  On May 31, 2020 I retired from full-time pastoral ministry. Previously I served as Senior Policy Analyst for Cultural & Worldview Studies for the American Center for Law & Justice from 2001 until 2004. Prior to that I served as Pastor of First Baptist Sweetwater in the Orlando, FL area from 1991-2001.

On New Years Eve, 1971, I married Rhetta Landers and we have three grown children. Carol-Beth who lives in Orlando, Anna who lives in Austin, TX and Will who has just moved to Nashville to begin his first job out of college.

I am in my first term as a Trustee for Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. I also have served as a visiting professor in Baptist History and Polity at the Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, FL.

My education includes a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Jacksonville State University in Alabama and a Master of Divinity from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas. I have done doctoral studies at the Reformed Theological Seminary and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.

I have pastored Southern Baptist churches for the past 30 years in Alabama, Georgia, Florida and Kentucky.

  1. Bill,

    The site’s looking good. Keep it going.


  2. Great article in July 2008 Tabletalk. I recently attended a church where the pastor preached from Job 1. In short, he said that Job was perfect, therefore we can be perfect, and he closed with these “10 two letter words”. IF IT IS TO BE IT IS UP TO ME. If Job can do it, then we can do it. (It is the only sermon I have ever walked out on with my whole family). I thought your comments along these lines and how these 10 two letter words have “replaced the view of a sovereign God…” was excellent. Thanks for teaching/preaching faithfully the Lordship of Christ. I recently began a series on John 5 titled… “Rediscover the Jesus Who Is”. Equality with God is at the center of the message. Thanks for your encouragement! Peace, Jay Mathis
