HOUSTON- Fred Sanders III, received a call from his Heavenly Father to preach the gospel of Christ. He hearkened to that voice and was called into the ministry in 1980. He was later ordained by Pastor Isaac Smith at Solid Foundations Ministries. Sanders served as an Associate Minister at Galilee Baptist Church under the late Pastor E.J. Booker. After which, he continued under the pastoral leadership of Pastor Edwin Davis, where he is still a son of the ministry.
Being spiritually motivated and determined to win souls for Christ, he organized Cliffdale Baptist Church in February of 1998. With five devoted souls Pastor Sanders began to hold service at the property located at Cliffdale and Carver St., in the heart of Acres Homes. Through God’s renewed blessings the church grown in leaps and bounds. God gave Pastor Sanders a vision in 2001 and due to growth and necessity the lot located at 854 Enterprise St., was purchased.
Throughout the years the church has grown in numerous ways both physically and spiritually. Cliffdale, has become known in the community for its’ Annual Easter Egg Hunts, Thanksgiving dinners, Christmas toy drives, and mentoring/ministering to the youth and residents of the community. To date, Cliffdale Baptist Church has purchased three additional lots on Enterprise, and is in the process of raising funds for a new sanctuary.
