My name is Matthew Gage and I thank you for visiting As of October 2017 I am the pastor of Faith Baptist Church in Decatur, TX. This website has been a project of mine since 2007.

Be sure and check out the Baptist Basics University podcast series. This series of lectures are designed to be like Sunday School lessons or Bible College lectures. Completed lessons series include verse-by-verse studies of John and Acts, an introduction to Baptist History, and a practical series on Preaching. Over 120 lessons are available with more to come! For convenience you can subscribe to the podcast through iTunes and not miss a new episode. Sadly, I am unable to record any more at this time because of equipment issues.

Another available podcast is Baptist History Spotlight. This is a series of 3-4 minute recordings of biographical sketches and other topics from Baptist History. It is also available through iTunes.
