The Pastor of GBC

Having served in the local church since 1982, Jerome Binns’ conversion to Christ and walking with the Lord Jesus Christ began as a teenager in 1978. Jerome Binns, repenting of his sins, forsaking his sins and coming to the Saviour began one Tuesday evening, at 6:45 p.m., standing in the hallway of Samuel Howard Archer High School in Atlanta, Georgia. It was the result of another high school teenager handing him a Gospel Tract and asking him, “If you died tonight, do you know if you would go to Heaven?” Even though he had not been one to go to church, he knew that he did not have a personal relationship with the Lord and knew that he needed to make a change in his life’s direction. He then yielded his life to God’s call. Jerome Binns prayed a sinner’s prayer. He confessed his sins and asked the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive him of all his sins and to come into his life to save his soul from a Christ-less eternity. And the Lord began a work of grace in his heart. 


He then attended and joined a strong Independent Baptist church called Bolton Hills Bible Church, in Atlanta, where Pastor James “P.” Ison was the under-shepherd. Jerome Binns later finished high school and began his undergraduate studies at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. His collegiate studies were in the field Business Administration/ Management concentration, but his biblical training was at B.H.B.C. He continued as a member of Bolton Hills Bible Church and also served there as Sunday School Teacher, until 1994, when he joined Phillips Drive Baptist Church of Forest Park, Georgia. P.D.B.C. was later dissolved and a new assembly, named New Covenant Baptist Church of Atlanta, was birthed. Jerome Binns served at P.D.B.C. as Sunday School Teacher. At New Covenant Baptist Church of Atlanta, he served as Administrative Pastor and Chief Operating Officer until 2009. Since January, 2010, Jerome Binns has joined and served at Grace Baptist Church of Fayetteville. He is now the Pastor and serves in the areas of Youth Ministries and Music Ministries.


Pastor Jerome Binns was married to his wife Jacquelyn on July 15, 1988. They met while members at Bolton Hills Bible Church in Atlanta. They have three wonderful daughters; Jocelyn (graduated from Crown College, married and living in Delaware), Janierra (graduated from New England Baptist College) and Jessica (graduate from Forest Park Christian School). Pastor Binns has a heart for souls and desires to see folks saved on a regular basis.


One of his life verses is found in the book of Psalms; Psalms 84:11 (KJV)… “For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.”
