The Mighty Men of Rehoboth Church of God in Christ Jesus, Apostolic
Deacon Leon Carlton, President
Deacon Leon Carlton, PresidentThe men of Rehoboth have been considered the back bone and corner stone of Rehoboth church since 1934. With the help of our Lord and savior Jesus Christ the mighty men of Rehoboth Church remain and continue to be the door keeper and protector of the house of the Lord erected in the late 1890’s, located at 700 Poplar Grove Street, Baltimore, MD 21216. There have been several great men that have led the flock of this church in the present of Bishop Randolph Adolphus Carr (1934 – 1970), Bishop William S. Barnes, Sr. (1970 – 1987) and today we continue this legacy in the presence of Bishop Keith G. Allen (1987 to present).
The Mighty Men of Rehoboth is an auxiliary of brothers that work together as one speaking and teaching the same doctrine, learning to live a holy life, and being of the same mind standing united in Christ. Rehoboth has a sincere group of bothers who truly have a heart for the Lord.
We talk, sing, and pray together as well as fellowship outside of the community church. The brotherhood is designed to strengthen the men on a spiritual and mental level so that we can all be more productive in building the kingdom of God in our church, our homes, and our community.
We all have different views and challenges in life that we, as men must face daily. It may be your family, job, physical or mental needs. We deal with real life issues as well as develop the spiritual man. Holiness is a way of life, and the men of Rehoboth are working on being effective in all areas of life beginning with God; for the Bible says “seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness.” As men of God, we must pattern ourselves in a manner that in pleasing to God so we may be able to be leaders and the royal priests that God has ordained us to be. We are men who have dedicated ourselves to assume the responsibility as the head and not the tail.
Romans 12: 1-2 "I beseech you therefore, brethren by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service."
The men of Rehoboth meet once a month, but we are not limited to monthly meeting because they may vary depending on what goals we set. Aside from maintaining the up keep of Rehoboth Church by doing repairs around the building, and keeping the grounds clean and well groomed, we are an open hand to the community. The brotherhood activities include the following: the prison ministry that teach and share the gospel of Jesus Christ, retreats to encourage fellowship among brothers and new members. We help disadvantaged families by providing food for the holiday. We are always there to lend a helping hand. Some of the ways we have raised money for our missions are through; community fairs, car repair, car washes, trips, giveaways and much more.
Our goal is that each man and woman grows in their knowledge of God and become a better steward of the life and blessing which we have been entrusted, and that the men of the church take appropriate leadership in carrying out the mandate and mission of the church. The Rehoboth brotherhood encourage you “ NO” we welcome you to celebrate this exciting time in the history of Rehoboth Church in its 80th anniversary and to enjoy what God so willing want’s to share with us all “salvation”.
