My call to the gospel ministry cannot be suppressed by anything of this world. I am compelled to preach and teach the inspired Word of God to people from all walks of life. As a child, I was blessed to be raised in a Christian home. My father, the late Pastor John J. Rector, Sr. relentlessly served as the Senior Pastor of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in San Antonio for over 40 years. He and my mother, a devoted home-maker, made sure I established an authentic relationship with Christ early in life. The Lord called my father home when I was 11 years old, just two months after I publically acknowledged my call (Jan.1, 1993) and preached my first sermon (Jan.13, 1993). This experience intensified and drives my call to complete submission to the Holy Spirit as I embrace the disciplines of spiritual formation embedded in the Word of God.
I believe in Baptist Doctrine. I believe in the Trinitarian order of emersion (God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit) gives credence to the practice of public baptism, missions and evangelical outreach. I believe that the Bible, the infallible and inspired Word of God, is the final source of authority.
