Red Skelton tells about a teacher he had when he was in the 7th grade:
“We were reciting the pledge of allegiance one day, our teacher, Mr. Laswell walked over and said, ‘I’ve been listening to you boys and girls recite the pledge of allegiance all semester and it seems that it has become monotonous for you.
If I may, may I recite it and try to explain to you the meaning of each word:
I- Me, an individual, a committee of one.
Pledge– Dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self pity.
Allegiance- My love and my devotion.
To the flag– Our standard Old Glory, a symbol of freedom, wherever she waves, there’s respect because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts, freedom is everybody’s job.
United– That means that we have all come together .
States- Individual communities that have united into 48 great states. Forty eight individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose. All divided with imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common purpose: and that’s love for country.
And to the Republic– Republic: a state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people and it’s from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.
For which it stands-
One nation– One nation meaning, so blessed by God.
Indivisible- Incapable of being divided.
With Liberty– Which is freedom. The right of power to live one’s own life without threats, fear, or some sort of retaliation.
And justice– The principle or qualities of dealing fairly with others.
For all– For all, which means boys and girls, it’s as much your country as it is mine.
Since I was a small boy, two states have been added to our country and two words have been added to the pledge of allegiance: UNDER GOD. Wouldn’t it be a pity if someone said ,”that is a prayer”, and that would be eliminated from schools too?”
Pray for America!

We will be celebrating our Church’s 38th Anniversary this Sunday, June 25th and are so excited how God has blessed us throughout the years.
Our first service was Sunday, June 28th, 1978 in a small office building on Castellano street.
Nine people, the Pastor, his family and Missionary Eldon Tudor and his family, were present.
On January 28th, 1979, we formed our Charter Membership with 37 members. The only active members from the original 37 today are Pastor , Marilyn and Michelle. We met in another small office building on Sunland Park, then rented a building on Festival St. for a while. We then rebuilt a building on Shorty Lane in March of 1980 while we saved money for our land and present Church building. We moved into our permanent location in November of 1992.
We have had 9 of our men surrender to God’s work. We have also started 7 Outreach Ministries which are:
– Missions Program
-Rescue Mission Ministry (not currently active)
– Westside Baptist Temple Academy (just finished our 21st year!)
-Bible Institute (not currently active)
We pray for the completion of our gym and for the safety of those working on it. Thank you to all who are a part and have been a part of our wonderful Church Family. Make sure your family and friends know where you go to church and bring them with you!
We have lots of pictures on our Facebook site. Check them out!
This is our founding and current Pastor and wife, Carl & Marilyn Chitwood:
And our Assistant Pastor and school Principal and his wife Bro. Bob & Linda Babnick:
