Matthew DeBord is the son of a Baptist Preacher and has himself been preaching full-time for 24 years. His great grand-father was an "old time" Baptist preacher. Matthew was formally educated at the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. With such a rich heritage and well-founded education, he boasts truly of only one thing, the joy and fullness of knowing Jesus Christ. Walking with the Lord and feeding upon His Word is his greatest wealth.
With all Matthew has experienced in Christ, he still believes we just scratch the surface of all their is to know and experience in relation to this awesome God. One of his greatest pleasures is to share truth from the Word of God so that others will become acquainted and fascinated with the Almighty Creator. This book covers one essential subject he so desires for people to know, the Love of God in Christ Jesus.
Having lived in Louisiana and Mississippi most of his childhood and adult life, Matthew now resides in central Alabama where he is the pastor of First Baptist Church, Clanton, AL. He and his wife, Kay, have two children, Julie, and Timothy. It is their blessing in life to serve the Lord.
