Mid Night Cry

Meet our Pastor - Dr. Jim Thomas

As the founder of The Midnight Cry Evangelistic Ministries and Senior Pastor of Abner Baptist Church I would like to share a little about myself. I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January 1975. I have been in the ministry for 45+ years and served the Lord as an evangelist while serving in and retiring from The United States Marine Corps {30 years}. In 1977 we founded The Midnight Cry Evangelistic Ministries and God has blessed our faithfulness. We have been at Abner Baptist Church since October 2014, and we ask for your prayers and support as the Lord leads in your life as well.

What we Believe


God is creator of the universe and author of life. God is Spirit, and therefore, He is timeless…


Jesus, the eternal Son of God, exists uncreated and is equal in Deity with the Father…

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit, the third part of the Godhead is equal in authority and was sent by Jesus as the promised Comforter. He is our Teacher and Guide…

Pastor`s Word

We believe it’s important to preach the Whole Counsel of God as described in the 1611 Edition of The King James Bible. We also believe it is just as important to have members that are faithful not only to God but also to the Church and her work. Our messages are designed to give not only physical but spiritual guidance to all of God’s children with a greater understanding of the principles, scriptural and spiritual guidelines that we as believers are to follow. We believe the Holy Scriptures are inspired by God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Finally, the messages are being outlined progressively “as the Lord leads” in order to help with your knowledge of the Word of God and His church, as well as an overall knowledge of who God is, what He teaches us and how you can praise His Name and Word.

“It is shocking to reflect that a change in the weather has more effect on some men’s lives that the dread alternative of heaven or hell. A woman’s glance affects them more than the eye of God.”

C. H. Spurgeon
