Pastor's Bio
Pastor Raymond T. Ellis is founder of Country Preacher Ministries, Incorporated, as well as the Pastor of Country Bible Baptist Church in Lumberton, North Carolina, founded in 1980. He is best known for his Bible Time Radio Ministry which began in 1972, and was later followed by Bible Time Television which began in 1995. Both of which still carry on today. He is also known as the “Country Preacher.” He is from Robeson County North Carolina, born and raised to a family of tenant farmers who believed in putting God first above anything else. He encourages and inspires everyone at Country Bible Baptist Church, and his listeners through his weekly radio and televison messages, his music, his writings, and his accurate teachings of the Holy Book. He attended college at the University of North Carolina, and is a graduate of the two year Bible Program of Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia. Every Sunday he delivers a powerful message that instructs and encourages the congregation to keep our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ first, to love and help one another, and to find ways that everyone can serve the Lord. He takes the Word and applies it to everyday events, which allows everyone to see the Holy Bible come alive in all that is happening in our world today. He has authored many Christian Study Booklets, two books of inspirational writings, two fiction novels, and a book entitled Memories of a Vanished Way of Life, which is a history and genealology of Robeson County. The people who know Pastor Ellis are as devoted to him as he is to them, as he makes himself readily available for his family, his friends, his church family and his community by his service to God 24 hours a day.
