Welcome from Pastor Dwight O. Steele Sr.

Welcome to the Pilgrim Baptist Church website. Indeed we count it a privilege and honor that you have an interest in this ministry. You have a standing invitation to join us in any or all of our services.

The word of God compels men to assemble, worship God and glorify His Name. By acting in obedience to His word, you release the gift that is inside you and walk into your divine destiny. We are confident that after sharing in one of our worship services, your life will never be the same.

It is our desire that the Holy Spirit will reveal His reason for directing you to Pilgrim. We do believe that everyone has a vital and integral mission in the body of Christ. May the Kingdom of God prosper in your life is our prayer and together, may the lives of humanity be changed because of what we know the Holy Spirit will do when we become those witnesses that the book of Acts declares, after the Holy Spirit has come upon us.

Again, many thanks and May God’s power and divine grace rest upon you.
