About Craige
  • Education: I was led to the Lord at the age of Thirty-Eight...and have been a student of God’s Word for the last four years at Texas Baptist Institute and Seminary in Henderson Texas...I am in the process of completing a Masters in Theology at named seminary... I am also in the process of obtainin an MBA at Stephen F. Austin University.
  • Experience: I am in my first year as pastor at Corinth MBC in Timpson Texas. Prior to this call, I filled the pulpit for Open Door Baptist Church in Henderson Texas for two years as interim pastor.
  • Comment to those looking at my sermons: I have been told that I preach a Baptist message with a Methodist twist...Does this make me a Bathodist??
  • Sermon or series that made a difference: Too many to mention...thanks to all for many inspiring words and Bible studies.
  • One of my favorite illustrations: On August 16, 1987, Northwest Airlines flight 225 crashed just after taking off from the Detroit airport, killing 155 people. One survived: a four-year-old from Tempe, Arizona, named Cecelia. News accounts say when rescuers found Cecelia they did not believe she had been on the plane. Investigators first assumed Cecelia had been a passenger in one of the cars on the highway onto which the airliner crashed. But when the passenger register for the flight was checked, there was Cecelia’s name. Cecelia survived because, even as the plane was falling, Cecelia’s mother, Paula Chican, unbuckled her own seat belt, got down on her knees in front of her daughter, wrapped her arms and body around Cecelia, and then would not let her go. Nothing could separate that child from her parent’s love—neither tragedy nor disaster, neither the fall nor the flames that followed, neither height nor depth, neither life nor death. Such is the love of our Savior for us. He left heaven, lowered himself to us, and covered us with the sacrifice of his own body to save us. Citation: Bryan Chapell, In the Grip of Grace (Grand Rapids: Baker, 1992)
  • Family: God has provided me with a wonderful Wife, Melissa and three wonderful children, Michael, Emily, and Paul... Melissa, Michael and Emily have all been saved and profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior...Paul is 17 mos old and is safe in the hands of the Lord.
  • What my parents think of my sermons: They think I might make a good preacher someday...(Ha, Ha!) My father is a retired Methodist Minister who has preached God’s Word for over forty years...we disagree on the practice of the two ordinances of the church...ie..scriptural baptism as compared to sprinkling, pouring or immersion...The Lord’s supper closed, close, or open...On those two subjects we agree to disagree...we do agree on the plan of salvation by grace and not of works lest any man should boast.
  • What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: "Honey I loved your message this morning...I just wish I had brought some snacks" Can a man preach God’s word too long????
  • Best advice given to me about preaching: The Bible is its best own commentary. "What sayeth the scriptures?"
  • Books that have had an impact: Bible.
  • Hobbies: Exploring God’s Word through the origanal languages of Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic. Playing with my children. Spending time with my wife. Studying Civil War history In my spare time I am a Geo-cache fanatic.
  • If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Don’t wait another moment...repent and believe... there may not be another tommorrow.
  • Something funny that happened while preaching: At my first invitation as pastor at my new church, my 6 year old daughter Emily walked the aisle. When i aked her her for her need to come foreward she replied, " I wanted to give you a hug". God is good.
  • What I want on my tombstone: "I did it His way"
