OUR PASTOR

Pastor Matt Peachey

Peachey, Matthew.jpg

Hello, and thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Please allow me the opportunity to give you some personal background and a testimony of God's leadership in my life.

I grew up attending church, but it was not until I was 28 years old that I recognized my personal need for a Savior. The Lord was gracious to help me move from an intellectual belief in the Gospel to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. After I was saved, the Lord began to reorder my life. God was working through my pastor's preaching and the private devotional time that I spent with God.

The Lord gave me the opportunity to serve as a Sunday school teacher and a deacon under the leadership of Pastor B.G. Boswell, at Calvary Bible Baptist Church in Newton Hamilton Pennsylvania. Pastor Boswell and Mrs. Phyllis invested in our family immeasurably as we sought to walk in obedience to God's Word.

 

In the summer of 2016, the Lord led my family and me to sell our home in Pennsylvania and to move to Oklahoma City to attend Bible College. During my time in Bible College, the Lord burdened me for church planting in the East. He showed me that ministry is more than seeing people saved it is also about seeing people grow as disciples of Jesus Christ. In the spring of 2020, I graduated from Heartland Baptist Bible College with my undergrad in Pastor Studies and awaited the Lord's direction for our next step in ministry.

 

Through a process of time, the Lord led me to candidate at BTBC. When the family and I visited the church we were certain that the Lord was calling us to this specific church. I was called as Pastor of Bible Truth Baptist Church in June of 2020.

 

The Lord has given me a burden to see BTBC go forward for his glory. He has impressed it upon my heart that God's Word preached will meet the needs of people and change lives. I'm an imperfect example of God's ability to use mankind for His glory. He has a plan for your life too. I would be honored to have the privilege to be a blessing to you.
