Welcome to Maranatha Baptist Church

An Independent Baptist Church in Dover, DE



Trains hold a special fascination for a lot of people.  When you look from a distance and see a train coming at full speed, it looks like nothing could stop it! The power of the locomotive, the momentum coming down the tracks; it looks like an unstoppable force.  It often makes me think of God’s plans and purposes.  From the beginning of time, God has had a plan for  this world. The world starts with “In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. “ (Gen. 1:1).  It ends with  “And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.” (Rv:22:5). In between, through the pages of Scriptures, over generations of time and space…..the unstoppable, loving plan of the God of the Bible is revealed. We might not always see it or be aware of it or feel it. But It’s there and it’s true and it’s  real. God also has a plan for each of our lives. In Proverbs 3, God says, “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” He has paths for us to follow and ways for us to go in this life.

The next time you see a train barreling down the tracks or hear a train whistle or hear the relentless rhythm of a train traveling nearby, remember God’s got a plan and it is on its way, and it is unstoppable.
