Minister Deloris Hutchins

What can be said . . . .

I love the Lord God and His perfect will is all that I want to do.  Luke 4:18 is my creed.  It says, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach/teach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach/teach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.”  This is my life’s goal.

I was in the church as far back as I can remember.  I received Jesus Christ at a very young age of 12 in Abyssina Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Fla., under Pastor B. L. Wynn.  Participated in the Sun Beam choir, young adult choir, VBS, and Baptist Youth Training.
