B.A.D. History

A word from our founder

Jesus commanded all people to go and make disciples of men.  The objective of Born Again Disciples is to teach our community all the ways of Jesus the Christ,  as described in the Holy Scriptures, which we believe is the inspired word of the Lord God Almighty. This includes loving our community as Jesus loved the world, demonstrated through the Crucifixion and Resurrection. We believe the teachings of Jesus will enable our community to recognize that all mankind needs a Savior, because all mankind is corrupt – and that accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior will result in salvation as well as a thriving family – creating an atmosphere of respect,  moral excellence, honor and integrity.

The second greatest feeling I have ever encountered in my life was marrying my wife and seeing my Children born.  The greatest feeling I have ever encountered, is one I  encounter each day. It’s a feeling which brings me joy, happiness, resiliency and serenity. And that feeling is absolute security, knowing without a doubt that I am a child of the King of Kings, the Lord of Lords, and that I am going to HEAVEN!!!!!!!!

This is what I want for my family, friends and all people.







Thomas Morris,

Founder of Born Again Disciples
