WALKING IN GOD'S PURPOSE
PROVERBS 19:21 "You can make many plans, but
the Lord's purpose will prevail."
Rev. Dr. Marlon Joseph Coleman is pastor of the Antioch missionary Baptist Church of Muskogee Oklahoma. He moved to Muskogee July 11, 2010 and was unanimously elected pastor of the church Father's Day 2011 after the passing of the late Rev. Dr. BW Noble. As a native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Rev. Coleman was blessed to be mentored early on by pastoral greats such as the late Dr. Willie Earl Hausey, Pastor of the St. John Institutional Missionary Baptist Church, and the late Dr. B.J. Maxon, Jr., Pastor of the St. Thomas Missionary Baptist Church both of the historic Louisiana Freedmen Missionary Baptist General Association that ordained him while serving as an Associate Minister at the Pleasant Valley Missionary Baptist Church in New Orleans, Louisiana under the late Rev. Pete Varnado, Jr.
The future for Antioch is great. Through the blessings of God Pastor Coleman plans to build a program to uplift God's people through Spiritual Placement, Economic empowerment, Community involvement, and Intellectual Advancement of Laypeople (S.P.E.C.I.A.L.). Since Dr. Coleman’s arrival many people of all ages have given their lives to Jesus Christ and been baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. There is no doubt that as long as God is with this house it will be spiritually and socially blessed.
