Dr. Robert McKeever was a native New Englander, born and reared in Bangor, Maine. At the age of seven, he was led to the Lord by a missionary church planter Bill White, who founded the Bible Baptist Church in Bangor.
While attending Bible College, Dr. McKeever planted his first church in Scottsboro, Alabama. During the next thirty years God used Dr. McKeever to start several churches in New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut.At the height of his ministry in 2004, Dr. McKeever was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He was serving at that time as director of New England School of the Bible, a ministry of Central Baptist Church in Southington, Connecticut; New England director for Baptist International Missions, coordinator for the Church Planting Schools conducted all over North America; and preaching at several mission conferences each year.
On October 31, 2005, after a long painful struggle with cancer, Dr. McKeever went home to be with the Lord. His life and testimony were a powerful influence on young people, preachers, and all Christians who were privileged to know him.
To honor the life-long ministry of Dr. Robert McKeever, this site is dedicated to the advancement of two ministries that were closest to his heart: church planting and revival.
Alien baptism does not refer to someone from outer space. Alien baptism refers to people desiring to join the church from another denomination. What would you do if a man comes to your church that was baptized in the Church of Christ and wants to join your church? What if anyone wants to join your church from any other church that does not have Baptist doctrine; what should you do? You should consider their previous baptism an alien baptism.
New churches attract people with problems. These people are looking for help and answers and the church is a logical place to seek help. Dealing with family issues is a certainty for every preacher. How will you counsel people on the issues of marriage, divorce, and remarriage? These issues are often highly charged and people often respond in a very emotional manner. Although there are many different view points about remarriage almost all Christians agree marriage should be between a man and woman and should be for life. No one believes that divorce is a good thing.
This slogan from a major car company is a catchy phrase. As slogans go it may or may not have merit, but it sounds good and it may entice customers to buy their product. In our commercial society the church can easily be affected by the "be the biggest and best" philosophy of the world. However, the church is a not a commercial business. The church is a living organization instituted by Christ and built upon the doctrine and faith of the Apostles and prophets.
