Today's Featured Biography

 

 
Carl Chitwood


Upon Graduation from High School, in 1957, I immediately joined the U.S. Army. I did a two and a half year tour in Germany, as a Radio Teletype Operator. I married my wonderful Wife, Marilyn on July 2, 1960. We had 3 children, Danny, Barbara, and Michelle. They are of course married and we now have 5 Grandchildren and one Great-Grandchild. Marilyn and I celebrated 53 years of marriage last year. My Wife Marilyn is a R.N. and worked for a number of years and our last Daughter, Michelle is an R.N. I was a Correctional Officier for the Prison System for the State of Illinois for 12 years. Then at the age of 32 years old, I knew God had called me to be a Pastor and a Preacher. I then went back to College at Midwestern Baptist College in Pontiac, Michigan. I graduated four years later in May 1976 with a Bachelor's Degree in Religion and in Theology. I then went back to Illinois as an ass't Pastor for two years. Then in June 1978, I knew that the Lord wanted us to start a Church in El Paso, Texas. I celebrated 35 years as the Pastor of Westside Baptist Temple and I am still going strong and have no plans to retire. We also have had a Christian School for the last 18 years, K-12. Thirteen men have surrendered to preach and pastor Churches under God's Ministry here in El Paso, Texas We also have a 3 year Bible Institute from which several have graduated and are serving the Lord. Back in 1998, I was given an Honorary Doctorate Degree of Divinity, based on what had been accomplished at that time. The most wonderful thing in this world is knowing that if your don't wake up tomorrow morning on this earth, is that you would be in Heaven, with the Lord Jesus Christ. I accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my Personal Saviour, in October of 1948, in the First Baptist Church of Vandalia, Ill., under the Pastorate of Pastor Paul Carleton. I urge anyone to ask The Lord Jesus Christ to become their Saviour, and then we can visit forever and ever in That Eternity, called Heaven. I enjoyed all of the Reunions we were able to attend and love all of you. Dr. Carl Chitwood--Pastor Westside Baptist Temple 901 Borderland Rd. El Paso, Texas 79932
