The firm commitment of the Deacons is to work toward the attainment of excellence in the fulfillment of our assigned ministry.
We see ourselves as servants of Jesus Christ and lay assistants to our pastor. Our efforts will be for the general welfare and spiritual well-being of the St. Paul Baptist Church family.
We promise to never be a hinderance to the pastor or to see ourselves as his supervisors but we are chosen to pray for him and to be deacons who uphold the pastor's arms.

The Deaconess's office is one in which competent dedicated women serve the Lord and His people through providing spiritual and physical care and instruction in faith and love.
The mission of the Deaconess Ministry of the St. Paul Baptist Church is to continue a ministry of servant bond while supporting the Pastor and Deacons in fostering peace, love and Christian unity in the church and the community. We embrace the two ordinances of the Baptist church namely, Baptism and Holy Communion.

- Ephesians 3:17-19
“Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.”

I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell on the tents of wickedness. - Psalms 64:10
A good usher is like "a city set upon a hill" Matthew 5:14. They become landmarks to church goers who learn to depend upon them. They provide stability and a sense of welcome repose. They are a source of church information. Ushers are like a lamp on a stand, not put "under a bushel but on a candlestick: and it giveth light unto all that are in the house" Matthew 5:15. Lamps bring warmth and welcome to all who are in the room. They dispel darkness and bring emotional warmth.
