Pastor Doss was saved at the age of eight years old during a revival meeting. His family faithfully attended Liberty Baptist Church in Mocksville, NC for most of Pastor Doss’ life. Upon graduation from Woodland Baptist Christian school in Winston-Salem, NC, Pastor Doss attended Pensacola Christian College.
It was at PCC that God called Pastor Doss to preach His Word. Upon graduation Pastor Doss taught Christian school while he worked in various ministry positions at Liberty Baptist Church. During this time God brought Pastor and Mrs. Doss together and upon their marriage they served for several years at Turner’s Creek Baptist church. Pastor and Mrs. Doss worked on a bus route, as the primary church leaders and Pastor Doss taught an adult Sunday school class.
In the summer of 2002 God called Pastor Doss to come to California, to plant a church. In March of 2005, Pastor Doss and his family moved to Merced and in the fall of that same year Merced Baptist Church was planted.
