Tim de la Paz

Elder Tim de la Paz

Nothing much needs to be said, and can be said, except that I am a poor sinner born to poor sinner parents in Manila, Philippines, in August , 1946, who, despite these irrefutable facts about himself, the Good Lord and Great Redeemer, in spite of Himself, took pity on before the foundation of the world and took it upon Himself to call me by name and to etch that worthless name in His eternal mind so that in accordance with His purposes of foreknowledge, predestination, calling, justification, and glorification, His wonderful Name will be, on the lips of this poor sinner, a time long testimony extending into eternity to the praise and glory of His Person.

In 1968 I met my wife, Aurora, and we were married the following year, and though our union was before man's ceremonies at the time, the hand of the Lord was upon us from the beginning, and our union was blessed with three children who all were made to grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord as best as my wife can, in a devoutly Roman Catholic country, where the person who used to carry a prayer book but turned to carrying a Bible on Sundays was often, in those times, considered a turncoat and an aberration, that is not to include my own contribution given my to and fro relationship with the God who graciously revealed His gospel at a time when I was in the grip of atheism.

In 1997, having seen us through the mountains and valleys of pilgrim journeying through a fallen world, the Lord brought us into this great and magnificent country, and in a cold January morning, in a lovely and small Virginia church, my wife and I had the glorious experience of finally being united with God's people through the waters of baptism, administered by a blue-lipped, shivering brother, and were admitted into membership with the Columbia Primitive Baptist church. From then on, the Lord caused me to grow in doctrine and knowledge under the able tutelage of His ministers, picking out, painfully (unbeknownst to my teachers then) at first, but with relief later on, such false teachings and inaccurate doctrines that I have picked up under the Arminian Baptists and their seminaries.

In the late months of 1999, the church set me at liberty to preach the gospel, and brethren churches graciously invited me over to be heard (and tutored some more).
In November of 2003 the church called for my ordination as an Elder at Columbia Primitive Baptist church, and beginning that same month on to late 2005 had the great privilege to serve as its pastor.
