About First Baptist Church of Algiers
RADIO MISSIONS is the 80-year-old work of First Baptist Church, Algiers, which originated on the West Bank of New Orleans, Louisiana. Since August of 2005 it has been located in Walker, LA. after Hurricane Katrina caused much damage to the facilities in New Orleans. Our Pastor is Bro. Albert Pendarvis who was awakened to his lost condition in the early days of this ministry, saved and called by God to preach the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord is blessing his preaching and labours in this work as he "earnestly contends for the faith that was once delivered unto the saints." Services are held at 9559 Florida Blvd, Walker, LA every Sunday and Wednesday night.
Bro. Pendarvis is the fourth Pastor to shepherd the work since the founder, L. R. Shelton, Sr., passed away in 1971. Pastors Gueho, Messer, and Cowles succeeded Bro. Shelton in turn and all have since followed him on to glory. Each man was led of the Holy Spirit to continue Bro. Shelton's awakening ministry by publishing his Sermons and airing his messages around the nation over the "Voice of Truth" and "Trailblazer" broadcasts.
