The Alliance Doctrinal Statement (www.cmalliance.org)

1. There is one God, (1) who is infinitely perfect,(2) existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.(3) ([1] Deuteronomy 6:4, [2] Matthew 5:48, [3] Matthew 28:19)

2. Jesus Christ is the true God and the true man.(4) He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary.(5) He died upon the cross, the Just for the unjust,(6) as a substitutionary sacrifice,(7) and all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.(8) He arose from the dead according to the Scriptures.(9) He is now at the right hand of Majesty on high as our great High Priest.(10) He will come again to establish His kingdom, righteousness and peace.(11) ([4] Philippians 2:6–11, [5] Luke 1:34–38, [6] I Peter 3:18, [7] Hebrews 2:9, [8] Romans 5:9, [9] Acts 2:23–24, [10] Hebrews 8:1, [11] Matthew 26:64)

3. The Holy Spirit is a divine person,(12) sent to dwell, guide, teach, empower the believer,(13) and convince the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment.(14) ([12] John 14:15–18, [13] John 16:13, Acts 1:8, [14] John 16:7–11)

4. The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.(15) ([15] 2 Peter 1:20–21, 2 Timothy 3:15–16)

5. Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God:(16) he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature,(17) are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.(18) The portion of the unrepentant and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment;(19) and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss.(20) ([16] Genesis 1:27, [17] Romans 3:23, [18] 1 Corinthians15:20–23, [19] Revelation 21:8, [20] Revelation 21:1–4)

6. Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all men; and those who repent and believe in Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life, and become the children of God.(21) ([21] Titus 3:4–7)

7. It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly,(22) being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service.(23) This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion.24 ([22] 1 Thessalonians 5:23, [23] Acts 1:8, [24] Romans 6:1–14)

8. Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the mortal body.(25) Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures and are privileges for the Church in this present age.(26) ([25] Matthew 8:16–17, [26] James 5:13–16)

9. The Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood, and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church, (27) which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the gospel to all nations.(28) The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel, and observance of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper.(29) ([27] Ephesians 1:22–23, [28] Matthew 28:19–20, [29] Acts 2:41–47)

10. There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life; (30) for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment.(31) ([30] 1 Corinthians 15:20–23, [31] John 5:28–29)

11. The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent(32) and will be personal, visible, and pre-millennial.(33) This is the believer's blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service.(34) ([32] Hebrews 10:37, [33] Luke 21:27, [34] Titus 2:11–14)

History of the Ministry

Reverend Donna A Baptiste

President, CEO & Founder
Donna Baptiste Ministries &
Metro District Evangelist
The Christian and Missionary Alliance
Associate Pastor of Clarendon Road Church

Jeremiah 1:5 is the verse the Lord used to call Donna A. Baptiste into his service. “Before I formed you I knew you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations” (NIV). Whatever has been done in and through this ministry and the founder of this ministry, happened because of the mighty moving hand of our God and Creator. All honor, praise, laud and blessing belong unto our God. He is the history of Donna Baptiste Ministries. Reverend Donna Baptiste is just a vessel he chose to use.

Donna was born on the Caribbean Island of Trinidad. At age 15, her family moved to Brooklyn New York where she presently resides. A few months, after her arrival, while viewing a Billy Graham telecast, Donna accepted Jesus Christ as her Savior and Lord.

After High School, she attended Hunter Bellevue School of Nursing in New York, New York where she received a Bachelor Degree in Nursing. During her sophomore year at Hunter College, the Lord called her to be His Missionary. This event occurred during a Missionary Conference at her home church: Clarendon Road Church of the Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA). The message preached came from the scripture verse found in the book of Romans.

“How then can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent; as it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news’!” (Romans 10: 14,1 NIV).

In response to God’s call, she attended Alliance Theological Seminary where she received a Master of Divinity Degree with an emphasis on Missions. Donna was later accepted by the C&MA as a Missionary to Mali, West Africa.

After Seminary, in 1987, the Lord led her to two years of ministry in Nassau Bahamas at the Chapel on the Hill. In 1989, she moved to Albertville, France, where she studied the French language in preparation for ministry in Mali. Then upon arriving in Mali, she studied the Malian language of Bambara. For a period of five and a half years (1990–1997), Donna served the Lord in Mali. During one of those years, April 29, 1991 to be exact, Donna had a very serious car accident, from which the Lord miraculously delivered, healed her and then returned her to Mali. “Your healing will quickly appear; then your righteousness will go before you, and the glory of the Lord will be your rear guard. . . you will cry for help and he will say: Here I am” (Isaiah 58: 8b, 9). “The Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, he enables me to go on high places" (Habakkuk 3:1, 9 NIV) miraculously within three weeks the Lord resorted Donna almost to full health. These scripture verses strengthened and built up her faith during three of the longest weeks of her life.

In Mali, Missionary Donna’s main area of service was Discipleship ministry. As Discipleship Coordinator, she developed a Discipleship Training Program for the Mali Church, outlined a five-year ministerial strategy, wrote a Discipleship Training Manual with accompanying visual aids and trained nine people (missionaries, pastors and lay leaders) in the use of the Discipleship materials.

In 1999, The Lord shifted her ministry from Mali, West Africa to the Metropolitan District of the Christian and Missionary Alliance (C&MA). As a result, Reverend Baptiste presently serves as an Evangelist in the Metro District of the (C&MA). For several years she was served as President of Alliance Women ministries, on the District Mission Committee and as Mission Mobilizer for the metro District of the C&MA. Reverend Baptiste was appointed as member of the Advisory Board of the Brooklyn Girls Residential Center. For a period of 10 years, she served as President of Alliance Theological Seminary Alumni Association and on the Board of Trustees for Nyack College/Alliance Theological Seminary. On July 23, 2005, Donna was consecrated/ordained to minister through the Christian and Missionary Alliance. “I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11, NIV). This was the bible verse the Lord gave and used as he transitioned her ministry from one focused exclusively upon missions outreach to one focused mainly upon Revival preaching and calling the Church back unto holy living.

Reverend Donna Baptiste is the President and CEO of Donna Baptiste Ministries, Inc (DBM). Our Lord led this preacher of the Word to launch DBM on July 27, 2007 with the focus of taking “The Gospel to the World through the Word”. As the Donna Baptiste Ministries logo indicates, this ministry stands under the Word of God, the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross-as our Savior and Sanctifier and, the commitment to fulfill the great commission. As of March 11, 2012 DBM launched a weekly Radio Broadcast entitled “Pursuing God”; the focus of which is to call the followers of Jesus Christ to high holy living. In October 2013, Reverend Baptiste was installed as Associate Pastor at Clarendon Road Church, Brooklyn, NY.

There is not one minister who stands on his or her own strength, we stand only because others stood with us; stood by us; stood up for us; stood in front of us; stood behind us and stood under us. Donna Baptiste Ministries exists because of many who poured into Donna the new believer in Christ, Donna the missionary candidate, Donna the missionary, Donna the preacher, Donna the metro evangelist and Mission Mobilizer, Donna the alumni president and now Donna the pastor and president of Donna Baptiste Ministries. The testimonial page of this website will make visible these unseen supporters and pillars of Donna Baptiste Ministries. It is a reminder to all that this ministry is first the work of God, secondly the work of the body of Christ and lastly the obedience of one.

Great and marvelous are your deeds,
Lord God Almighty.
Just and true are your ways, King of the ages.
Who will not fear you, O Lord
and bring glory to your name?
For you alone are holy.
All nations will come and worship before you
for your righteous acts have been revealed.”
(Revelations 15: 3b,4 NIV)
