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.

Just Believe

Mark 9:23

Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”

There is nothing impossible for those who walk in Bible faith. Faith believes in the heart not the head what God has promised us. Faith speaks in line with what one believes, and faith acts upon the Word of God. Find scripture that gives you the promise of what you are believing for. Meditate on those verses until they become real to your inner man (your spirit man).

Then release your faith believing you have received when you pray, and stay in faith calling those things that do not exist as though they did. Faith does not deny the existence of a problem or obstacle, but faith does not focus on the things in the natural but on the Word of God. Faith does not look at what is seen, does not become occupied with what you are facing, but it looks at what is not seen the promise of God’s Word that is not yet manifest.

Faith sees that promise as a present day reality for you have taken hold of that promise in your heart, your spirit man. Faith also acts upon the Word of God for faith without corresponding action is dead. We must act upon what God’s Word says. What man says is impossible, God says is possible to them that believe. Just believe!

Baptized With The Holy Spirit

Mark 1:8

“I baptized you with water; but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

Jesus desires for us to be more than just born again, it is His desire that we be immersed in the presence of God. If we will ask Him in faith, it is He who will baptize (immerse) us in the Holy Spirit. In Acts 1:8 Jesus told His disciples that they would receive power (be empowered) after the Holy Spirit came upon them and they would be able to go and do the works Jesus did. Acts 10:38 declares that Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirit and power, and He went about doing good and healing those oppressed of the devil.

There is more than a born again experience for the believer. When you are born again, your spirit is made new and the Holy Spirit comes into your spirit. But when you are baptized in the Holy Spirit you yield yourself unto the presence of God within you and He comes upon you to empower you to set people free, following in Jesus’ example. Jesus Himself said in John 14:12 that the works He did we can do also.

This is a missing element in many believers lives. There are many churches that do not teach the “Full Gospel”, for being baptized in the Holy Spirit is a part of the good news available to every believer. If you have not been baptized in the Holy Spirit find a church that believes in all Jesus taught, and learn how to receive this power for your life through the Holy Spirit who lives in everyone who is born again. Once you have received this power from on high, learn to yield unto Him every day by praying in your heavenly language, building yourself up on your most holy faith (Jude 1:20).

You Have Overcome

Revelation 12:11

11 And they have overcome (conquered) him by means of the blood of the Lamb and by the utterance of their testimony, for they did not love and cling to life even when faced with death [holding their lives cheap till they had to die for their witnessing].

When a boxer steps into a ring he does so to fight an opponent in hopes he will be the champion and win the fight. As believers once born again, we do not step into the ring of life trying to win a battle against our enemy satan, we step into the ring because we are the champion. Jesus already defeated him! When someone who is born again is trying to defeat the works of the devil they are going to lose. We don’t try to defeat him, we enforce the victory that is already ours.

As the above verse tells us, we overcame him. It did not say we will overcome, we have overcome. To enforce this victory that is already ours we must do three things.

#1. Understand the power of Jesus’ blood, and what that blood did for us. His blood cleansed us and recreated us in the image of God. Just as Jesus trampled on the enemy that is what we are to now do as well, but we must walk in the revelation of what His blood has done for us.

#2. We must have a confession in line with what His shed blood did accomplish for us. When believers talk defeat, talk the problem, etc, instead of declaring the victory that is already theirs, they are not going to walk in the victory that belongs to them. It is our testimony that causes us to rise up to our place in Christ.

#3. We must also stop loving our life. Simply put, stop calling the shots, and instead fully obey and follow the ways of Christ. You have been bought with a price, His shed blood, we need to live like it. Do these three things and you can walk in the victory that is already yours!

None of These Things Should Move You

Acts 20:24

But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.

A golden rule to finishing your race, not abandoning your walk with Christ, and never turning from the ways of the Lord, you must learn not allow things to move you. To many believers are moved away from church, the Bible, a godly confession, Christian fellowship, godly leadership, and fellowship with God because of things that happen in their life. Notice in this verse how we avoid allowing such things to affect us. We are not to count our lives dear to ourselves. Translation, stop living for you.

As a believer in Christ we were bought at a price and we belong to God, therefore we should live for Him. When you live for God you can’t get your feelings hurt, nor allow what happens around you to take control of how you live, for you are following after Christ. This is how you live a joy filled life, for you stop focusing on the things of the world which do not bring true joy but only fleeting happiness.

But the joy of the Lord is a powerful and constant strength to your life. When you live for God and He is why you get up everyday, life takes on a whole new view, a life filled with the goodness and the glory of our God. Keep your focus on the Creator and not on the creation and you will no longer be tossed around by the challenges of life but instead overcome them because you cannot be moved.
