About Pastor Darryl Baker

My walk with Christ began in 1985 having received Jesus into my life at a Bible Study one night. I was a professional bull rider at the time and little did I know of all God had for me. Since that time my wife and I birthed the church we now pastor, Christian Faith Fellowship in Roanoke Texas. I have a passion for helping people become all they can be in Christ, and for raising up other ministers. I also travel and speak with a gift to teach the Word of God especially in the area of discipleship. There is nothing like seeing other people set free and growing in God. I am very blessed with some great spiritual fathers. Dr. Mark T. Barclay, Dr. Hilton Sutton, and Rev. Coy Huffman.

Walk As He Walked

1 John 2:5-6
5 but whoever keeps His word, in him the love of God has truly been perfected. By this we know that we are in Him:
6 the one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked.

Many ministers talk about God’s love for us, but what about our love for God? Jesus said if we love Him we would keep His commandments. We walk as He walked, living in obedience to the Word motivated by love, not by law. We don’t keep His Word because it’s a law, but simply because we love Him. Obedience to God’s Word is what faith is all about.

Faith is an act and faith is revealed to the degree that we trust God. How far can you trust the Lord? That is the extent of your faith. Faith believes, speaks, and acts in line with God’s Word, but faith works when motivated through love. Jesus was obedient to His Father and He did so motivated by love. Jesus said that He only did that which He saw the Father doing.

How different our lives will be if we would only do what we see in our Fathers Word. His Word is a lamp unto our feet, and a light unto our path. So walk in the example of our Lord Jesus Christ, keeping His Word, motivated by love. It will be a life lived that you won’t regret. A life filled with all that God is, and all that God has for you, for He and His Word are one.

Complete In Christ

Colossians 2:10
…and in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority;

To be complete here means to fill to the full, be satisfied. You will only be satisfied in life when Jesus is what you are focused on. Everything else will leave you feeling empty and unfulfilled. If your happiness and joy in life is found in what you posses, or in the approval of other people whether they like you or not, it will be temporary, for what is seen in the natural is subject to change.

If we think anything other than Jesus is going to fulfill our life and make us complete, we are still living under the deception of Adam and Eve looking to God’s creation to find joy and contentment instead of the Creator Himself, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, through whom all things were created. Don’t worship the creation, including other people, for there is only One who will bring full value and worth and satisfaction to your life; the One who gave His life for you.

As 1 John 2:15 tells us we are not to love the world, nor the things in the world. If we do then we do not have a love for the Father. You cannot love God and love the world at the same time. Set your affection on God not on worldly things. Make Him your priority every day. When your heart is set on the Lord you will walk in the only thing that will make you complete, Him.

Rooted In A Walk of Faith

Colossians 2:6-7
6 As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him,
7 rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith, as you have been taught, abounding in it with thanksgiving.

For all who have received Christ and been born again we are to now walk in Him, established in a lifestyle of faith. There are keys to walking by the faith of God that we must know to learn this new walk of faith. Faith is always present tense. Hebrews 11:1 reveals that faith is now (present tense). When we look to God’s Word we don’t see what Christ has done for us as something in the future, we see His Word as already fulfilled therefore we act upon the Word as if it is so because it is.

Faith is the evidence of things not seen, which means we don’t base what we believe on what we see in the natural, we base our belief on what God’s Word says. We walk by faith and not by sight, we are unaffected by what is seen or felt, like Abraham we consider not the circumstances but we only consider God’s Word. His Word is the source of our faith so we feed on the Word of God, for this is how faith comes.

Faith also calls those things which be not as though they were. Faith does not deny the circumstances we see, but we confess God’s Word magnifying God and His truth. We abound in faith with thanksgiving, always grateful for what Christ has done for us thanking God for His promises. Once faith in the Word of God has been released, believing we receive His promises when we pray, we then continually give thanks to God. To walk in Him we must be established in bible faith, for this is how Jesus our example lived His live here on earth.

Be Found In Him

Philippians 3:8-9
8 Yet indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ
9 and be found in Him, not having my own righteousness, which is from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which is from God by faith;

In verse 9 the phrase “be found in Him” means to obtain Christ. When we put our faith in Jesus we should no longer strive to obtain things, or human status, we have obtained all we need in Christ Jesus. Our sole worth in life should now only be found in Him and nothing else, and like the apostle Paul we should count all things loss and focus on knowing Jesus. Paul knew something about pursuing the wrong things in life.

From an early age Paul thought what he was pursuing in life was the right thing. Raised in a culture where knowing and keeping what had become a man-made religion, as the Jews had added many of their own laws to what God had given to them, this was considered a life to be envied. It was a deceiving way to live life thinking if you could live up to the standards that man had made you could become righteous and know God. Paul upon meeting Jesus on the Damascus road found out he had placed his value in life on the wrong thing.

Many believers still do so today. They may value their possessions, money, or their status in a position as something to chase after. Paul found out all such things including man-made religion were as rubbish compared to knowing Jesus, for they cannot give you what really matters in life, being found in Him. It comes from faith in Christ, and a daily pursuit of knowing Him. All other things will simply leave you empty, but knowing Jesus personally and pursuing Him will fill your life to the full, to overflowing.
