About Me

Thank you so much for stopping by the web site today! My name is Darrin Waldroup and I am serving the LORD, I have begun my 18th year, as the Senior Pastor of the Bethel Missionary Baptist Church in Spruce Pine, NC. I would like to introduce my family to you. My wife of 31 years is Jeanna, my daughter Shelby, who just got married, is 28 and my son Luke is 20.

At the age of 11, on July 13, 1978, I trusted Jesus Christ as my Savior as I was visiting the Balfour Baptist Church of Hendersonville, NC, in a revival meeting. I remember it like it was yesterday and I have never been the same. Brother Percy Ray was preaching from 1 Peter 5:8. I fell under the convicting power of the Holy Spirit and I called on the LORD Jesus and HE saved my soul!

I surrendered to the call to preach in 1994. I was elected as the Associate Pastor of the Fletcher First Baptist Church and served there 2 years. Then GOD called me to Zirconia, NC where I served as the Senior Pastor of the Zion Hill Baptist Church for over 5 years.

God sent me to Spruce Pine, NC, in 2001 as the Senior Pastor of Bethel Missionary Baptist Church. GOD has blessed by saving hundreds of precious souls in the church at Bethel or in revival meetings where GOD has opened doors. To GOD be the glory!

GOD has allowed me to attend seminary and I hold the Master of Theology, Doctor of Theology, Doctor of Ministry, Doctor of Divinity and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. The education is helpful, but the call and power of GOD is needful! Pray for me.

Again, I thank you for visiting the website and I would love to hear from you. My contact information can be found on the ‘Contact’ link above.

Jesus NEVER Fails,

Titus 2:13,14


(A Note From Pastor Darrin)

Friend, we live in a world torn apart by hate, by wars, by greed and by the very powers of Satan himself. Homes are broken, hearts are broken, churches are torn apart and there is unrest in governments and nations around the world. Where will it all end? Is there no hope, no stopping point? These questions are being asked by mothers and fathers, by preachers and church members and by heads of state. Does anyone care? Does God care? Well if no one on earth cares, I’m glad to report to you that GOD DOES CARE.

You may be a social outcast whom the devil has robbed of all your earthly, spiritual and moral wealth. You may be bleeding from the wounds that Satan and sin have inflicted upon you. Well, just remember that Jesus is the all-powerful Savior and He cares for you. He cares if you are saved. And He promised to save those who will come to Him. Jesus said “Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out” (John 6:37)

In this awful time of unsafety, Jesus offers you complete safety from sin and Satan. I heard someone say once that there is no safe place on earth anymore. But Jesus is a safe shelter from the storms of life. In Jesus, you are safe from false religion, you are safe from death , and you are safe from hell. You are, as the song says “Safe in the arms of Jesus.”

There is an awful unrest in the world today. No one seems to be satisfied anywhere with anything for very long. People change jobs. They change husbands and wives. They change churches, sometimes going from one extreme to another, yet they are still dissatisfied. When we come to a right relationship with Jesus, we will find complete satisfaction. As the song says “I’ve never been sorry, since I trusted His name”. Apostle Paul said it best “we are complete in Him, which is the Head of all principality and power.”(Col 2:10) Jesus is all we need

Friend have you called upon Jesus? Do you attend services at the House of God? I invite you to do both….. call on Jesus, attend His House and study His Word.
