PILGRIM FUNDAMENTAL BAPTIST PRESS TEMPORARILY CLOSED

Pilgrim Fundamental Baptist Press will be temporarily closed from September 5 – 22 while the missionary printer is on a mission trip to Honduras. The print shop will reopen on 26 Sept following a couple of days of playing catch-up in the office. Even though the print shop will be temporarily closed during this time, literature orders may still be placed and the missionary printer will try to acknowledge to the customer their receipt.

NEW GOSPEL TRACT ADDED ON 12 AUGUST 16

Thank You OfficerOn 12 August a NEW Gospel tract was added to the Pilgrim Fundamental Baptist Press inventory. This new tract was written specifically for law enforcement personnel. The purpose of the tract is to let law enforcement personnel know that they AND their families are appreciated for the services they perform in and for the respective community. The tract also talks about salvation and how to be saved. The last two paragraphs read as follows:    My friend, as a police officer, I do not know who you are or where you are serving but this one thing I do know, your service to the respective community is greatly needed and appreciated. Thank you very much for your service and, a special thank you to your family for sharing you with the community. I do not know if you know my Jesus as your personal Saviour but, if you do not, then I would in the humblest way possible, encourage you to repent and trust Him today – before it becomes eternally too late. I sure would like to see you in Heaven one day!
Thank you for serving as a law enforcement officer and for taking the time to read this little pamphlet.

New Gospel Tract Now Available

A new Gospel tract has just been added to the inventory of Pilgrim Fundamental Baptist Press, Inc. This new tract is called, “All Lives Matter” and it is bound to raise some eyebrows. Here are the lines from the first paragraph of the tract:  “and, certainly, they do. Another slogan says that “Blue Lives Matter” in reference to police officers and, certainly, they do. Still, there are those who believe that only innocent lives matter. The fact of the matter is that in the eyes of God, ALL LIVES MATTER. Why? Because every life, no matter what the person’s race, religion, or ethnic origin may be, each life is an eternal soul for whom Jesus Christ shed His innocent blood and died for. And why did He do that? Because of His great love for each and every soul. “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” {Romans 5:8}”

This tract is now available for ordering on the ministry website at www.pfbaptistpress.org. The requested contribution is $2.25 per 100 hundred copies, plus postage.

New Gospel Tract Available

Pilgrim Fundamental Baptist Press now has a new Gospel tract available; this one is called, “The Final Segregation.” Here are three paragraphs from the tract:

To many people, if not most, the word “segregation” has a negative meaning as it is often a memory of the days of racial segregation in America as well as other countries. As a noun, segregation means the following: 1.} the act or practice of segregating; a setting apart or separation of people or things from others or from the main body or group: gender segregation in some fundamentalist religions. 2.} the institutional separation of an ethnic, racial, religious, or other minority group from the dominant majority. 3.} the state or condition of being segregated, set apart, separated, or restricted to one group. Segregation may be applied to a variety of things, such as fruit. For example, the good apples are segregated (separated) from the bad apples. So you see, not all segregation is bad segregation.

In the matter of racial segregation, much has changed though it still exists in many places. Activists and courts have been working to eradicate all segregation; some activist judges have even gone beyond the limits of the law in order to force their will on the people. Many volumes of books could be written on this subject as well as legal challenges in the judicial system. HOWEVR, there is one segregation coming and no civil rights movement or  judicial branch in the world will be able to do anything about it; it will be without appeal!
The last book of the Bible, Revelation, plainly tells us that there is a great segregation coming where the lost souls, those who have not trusted Jesus Christ as personal Saviour, will forever be segregated {separated} from those who have repented of their sin and trusted Him as Saviour. The lost will be segregated to the place the Bible calls the lake of fire, “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.” {Revelation 21:8} while those who have trusted Jesus Christ as Saviour will be with Him for all eternity “. . . Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.” {Revelation 21:3}

This Gospel tract may be ordered from the ministry web site at pfbaptistpress.org for a requested contribution of $3.00 per 100 copies, plus postage. The requested contribution just barely covers the actual printing cost.

Poems From the Heart – Vol. 2

I am pleased to announce that my new book, Poems From the Heart – Vol. 2, is now in stock and available for ordering from the ministry web site at pfbaptistpress.org. The book has also been uploaded to amazon.com for the Kindle. The book is a collection of approximately 75 poems written by your truly. In addition to the poems, there are quite a few full-color pictures to go along with them as well as Scripture verses, quotes from other sources, and different sayings all to compliment the respective poem. My good friend Dr. Allen P. Dickerson wrote the foreword for the book; the forewords reads as follows:

Bro. Richard Ciarrocca, a dear friend in the Lord and brother in Christ, has asked me to write the forward to his book. I first met Brother Richard a number of years ago while I was preaching in a Fundamental Bible Conference in West Hartford, Connecticut. Our paths crossed again when Brother Richard was helping to put together a Fundamental Preachers Conference in eastern Maine. I was invited to preach there and our friendship has grown over the years. Brother Richard was in the process of establishing a fundamental Baptist printing ministry. He called me and talked about the possibility of basing his ministry in Elkton, Maryland at the Maranatha Baptist Church. I told Brother Richard: “Sure, come on! We’ll find a place for you!” It has been my privilege as I pastored for fifty-eight years at the Maranatha Baptist Church to see the ministry of Pilgrim Fundamental Baptist Press grow. Brother Richard has written many tracts & booklets, prints them in many languages, provides many services to missionaries and churches & makes his tracts available to others at a very reasonable cost. Brother Richard has a great heart for Missions. He makes at least three missions trips a year to travel to Central America to take thousands of pieces of Gospel literature and to get involved in the ministries of the missionaries that he is visiting (preaching, teaching, building, soul-winning and distributing literature). I know that this book by Brother Richard Ciarrocca will be a great blessing to you and yours.

SPACE ALLOCATION FOR CHURCH ADDRESS

Today, 26 January 2015, I received a call from a customer  who asked if our Gospel tracts have any space for churches to put their information.  The answer to this question is yes, we try to allow at least 1″ of space for a church add their name and address; some tracts have more than an inch for this purpose.

New Color Digital Press

Recently the ministry was able to purchase Color Digital Press and some literature items have already been printed with it; the new Gospel tract, “The Christmas Myth” is an example of this. In all likelihood, most of the single color tracts will continue to be printed on the Ryobi 2-color press; however, plans are for the multicolor tracts to be printed on the digital press. The nickname for the digital press is “The Beast.” The single color tracts that have graphics that would ordinarily be in color, these will also be printed on the Beast since they will look better. As the current stock of tracts are used up and subsequent printing are done, there may be a change in the requested contribution amount. If that happens, then the prices will be changed for the respective item(s). The requested contribution amount reflects the actual cost of the product; ink, paper, plates (for what is printed on the Ryobi), etc. This ministry is very much a non-profit ministry and it is only because of its faithful supporters that it is able to operate the way it does.

The Christmas Myth

         Every year The Christmas Myth is resurrected and people all over the world go along with it as if it was a fact to be celebrated. There are songs, stories, movies, clothing, pictures and more associated with The Christmas myth. A myth, by definition, is a “an idea or story that is believed by many people but that is not true.” The proper meaning of Christmas is that time of the year when Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ, the promised Messiah who would come for the purpose of paying the penalty for our sin debt.  Satan has always done everything in his power to try and prevent the coming of the Saviour, but he failed. He tried to defeat the Saviour by having Him crucified, but that failed also. Jesus Christ is God, He is God the Son who left heaven’s glory and came to earth as was foretold in Isaiah 7:14: “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” The word “Immanuel” means “God with us.” Jesus is the name given to the Messiah at His birth.   Mary, His human mother conceived Him of the Holy Ghost: “Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily. But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.” {Matthew 1:18-21}

This tract is available for a contribution of $2.00 per 100 plus postage.

Visit a crocodile farm

Have you ever visited a crocodile farm? In June while on a mission trip to Honduras I did just that and learned a lot. Missionary service can be very educational!
