Steve Hale, President of Steve Hale Evangelistic Association:
"Among the decisions we are required to make in life, selecting a solid, Bible-believing church home is among the most important. It is here that you and your family's character will be formed, convictions solidified, and understanding of God's Word expanded. It is also the place where quality friendships will be established, thus enriching your life to be more of what God intends. Miles Road Baptist is such a church.
As one who has preached in hundreds of our nation's churches, you will be hard-pressed to find a more biblically conservative, mission-minded Church than Miles Road Baptist. The music is uplifting and the anointed preaching is straight from the Bible, God's Word. The times in which we live are unsettling. In unprecedented proportions, our nation and our world are in crisis mode. A stable church family where the unity of the Spirit is felt, the love of Christ is expressed, and the unchanging Word of God is preached will do much to bring peace and comfort in these tumultuous times. Do yourself and your family a favor by prayerfully considering Miles Road Baptist as your church home. You will not be disappointed."
Bob Marcaurelle, Pastor of Meadowbrook Baptist Church in Anderson, SC:
"I have been a Pastor for 49 years and am well acquainted with Pastor Jim Palmer and the Miles Road Baptist Church in Summerville, South Carolina. I know of no Pastor more genuinely interested in God's people as individuals than Jim. He takes the time to get to know each and every person under his watch and care so that he can minister to them and be ministered to by them. His preaching is not only biblical, relevant and easy to understand, but so well thought out that I have never heard him speak without learning something new, and finding something I need to apply to my life to be a better Christian person.
Having been in Miles Road Church as a speaker and worshipper, I see it growing numerically and spiritually because it is an exciting fellowship of joyful believers and it ministers effectively and lovingly to all age groups. If my family and I lived in the Summerville area, Miles Road would be our church and Jim Palmer would be our Pastor."
Larry McFadden, Larry McFadden Ministries, Inc.
"I am privileged to say a special positive word about the ministry of Miles Road Baptist Church. In a day when so many churches are facing a myriad number of problems, Miles road seems to function above the fray.
I am very thankful for a growing evangelistic church that is so mission minded. Miles Road not only does missions, but it promotes and helps missions of all kinds.
There are few churches among us, Baptist or otherwise, that have such a healthy, spiritual atmosphere. I pray that the ministry there will continue to grow in every way."
Frank Shivers, Frank Shivers Evangelistic Association, Columbia, SC:
"A church may be judged by its belief about the Bible, behavior in duty, burden for the unsaved, battle for Truth and blameless leadership. Miles Road Baptist Church passes the test overwhelmingly in each regard. In an era such as today of churches succumbing to the trend of being like the world in order to gain the allegiance of the world, it is refreshing and renewing to find a church like Miles Road that refuses to bend or bow theologically, morally and in regard to practice and worship. No church or pastor I know cares more for the office and support of the vocational evangelist that this body of believers and their minister, which in itself is testimonial to its consuming evangelistic and missionary passion and purpose."
George South, Concord, NC:
"Being on the road for many years has allowed me to meet some wonderful people. Miles Road Baptist Church has become my partner, my friend and my Prayer Warrior. Serving our Savior, Jesus Christ, just comes easy for the members. A feeling of 'returning home' always gives me something to look forward to! What a warm, caring church that loves people."
Evangelist Junior Hill, Hartselle, Alabama:
"As one who travels to different churches almost every week, there are those rare occasions when you find one with the unique touch of God upon them. Miles Road Baptist Church is one of those fellowships!
Their pastor, Dr. Jim Palmer, is a modern day Barnabas! I have seldom met anyone who has such a gift of encouragement -- and it filters down into the whole church body. If you want to be loved and greeted with a sense of genuine welcome, I encourage you to visit this wonderful spirit-filled fellowship."
Scott Carpenter, The Carpenter Family Renewal Ministry, Inc., Saint Albans, West Virginia:
"Because of the nature of our ministry, our family has the privilege of 'fellowshipping' with many churches across this country. There are few churches that hold such a special place in our hearts than Miles Road Baptist Church. I'm sure they would admit, openly and humbly, that they are not a perfect church. However, in our many experiences with them, they are everything you would want a church family to be. Jesus is first and foremost in all they do, and God's Word is preached clearly without apology. Twice in the past we were scheduled to minister in the Sunday evening service, and were thankful that our Sunday morning ministry did not pan out and we were able to attend Miles Road as regular church folk. We were truly blessed by and enjoyed the great singing, the awesome time of worship, and pastor Jim's timely messages. The outreach ministry of Miles Road Baptist Church is 'plugged' into the very heartbeat of God. Seeing lost souls saved and the redeemed brought to maturity in Christ is why they exist as a church. I believe every person will find a truly loving home, and a powerful place of service at Miles Road Baptist Church."
Dr. M. Randall Jones, Conway, South Carolina:
"All who are searching for a place of worship and ministry that is true to the Word of God, should look no further than to Miles Road Baptist Church and the ministry of pastor Jim Palmer. During the times that I have been privileged to share with them, I have found their friendship and fellowship both thrilling and fulfilling. The messages of Dr. Palmer are enlightening and inspirational. If I lived in the Summerville, SC area, I would certainly choose to plant my life in this great church."
Delton Dees, Evangelist of "Isn't Jesus Wonderful Crusades", Concord, NC:
"It is such a pleasure for me to say a good word about Miles Road Baptist Church. In our day of dead churches and no baptisms -- and churches not making their budgets, it is delightful to see that Miles Road reaching new highs in baptisms and budgets that not only reach record giving to the church -- but also to missions and evangelism.
It touches my heart to come and see my name as an Evangelist -- but to see so many of my friends' names hanging in your auditorium -- knowing we are prayed for and supported as we go. You at Miles Road go with us as we travel all over the world.
I believe that Miles Road Baptist is setting the pace in these troubled times. You have proven that Matthew 6:33 really works.
May you be blessed as Pastor and People with one heartbeat, reaching the lost and reviving the saints. I believe that your greatest years are just in front of you. God bless you, Jim and fine people, for helping me as a young Evangelist and now after 40 years in Evangelism -- you are still there."
Michael C. Catt, Pastor or Sherwood Baptist Church, Albany, GA:
"Several years ago, it was my privilege to speak to the people at Miles Road Baptist Church. The pastor, Jim Palmer, and his people were incredible. Their spirit, enthusiasm, and love for the Lord were evident the moment I walked into the room. It's a church with God's hand all over it!"
