Hello! I’m Brian Mann

The pastor at Catherine Lake Baptist Church  

My greatest calling is being given the right to be called a child of God (John 1:12–13). Additionally, God has called me to be a husband (Ephesians 5:25–26), a father of three children (Psalm 127:3). and a gospel minister (2 Corinthians 4:1). I have been a pastor since early 2000 and have served at Catherine Lake since January 1, 2009. 

We live in challenging times, but times which present no great challenge to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As God’s called and appointed shepherd at Catherine Lake Baptist Church, I give thanks for the flock which he has purchased with his own blood, and ensured will continue in the faith according to his particular promises to all who believe. Pastoral ministry means being cared for, led, and protected by the Word of God in a godless world. We can expect God’s kingdom to grow without end and with ever increasing glory. Nonetheless, every believer must get into a sound church under a God called elder/pastor to fully benefit from God’s promises. Catherine Lake is an outpost in the world, that looks with hope for the world to be covered with the glory of God as far as the waters cover the sea. May I encourage you to read your Bible beginning with Genesis 1:1 and submit your life to Jesus Christ as creator, redeemer, friend, and king as revealed throughout the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments. Your first step of submission to Jesus Christ should include baptism into a local church that faithfully preaches the Bible. If you are in the Catherine Lake area, we encourage you to attend. If not, we would be glad to pray for you and help direct you to a church in your area.
