Being led by the Holy Spirit, Edward Alexander Jr., became Pastor of Christian Baptist Church in Lake Charles, Louisiana on December 29, 1994 with a vision to "Meet the Needs of the Total Person - Spirit, Soul, and Body". Since then, the membership has doubled and continues to grow; new Ministries have been created, such as, Children's Church, New Member Orientation Classes, Singles' Ministry, Marriage Ministry, S.P.A.R.K and B.L.A.Z.E Youth Ministry, and Hour of Power (A Wednesday night Bible Study). In respect to the vision, Pastor Alexander has led the CBC family in meeting the needs of the local community through free outreach programs such as: the Dorcas Food Pantry, Good Friday Fellowship, clothing and feeding of the homeless, benevolent fund, provide full meal for family members during repast, provide necessities for Harvey flood victims, Annual Health and Resource Fair, Kingdom Karnival, and Voter Registration drives. Pastor Alexander praises God for the numerous persons who have come to accept Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
Along with the new Ministries that were formed, Pastor Alexander was given a new vision for the church, "One Church, Two Locations". Christian Baptist Church now has a Family Life Center, located in south Lake Charles. The Family Life Center is a multipurpose facility that includes a gym, game room, and exercise room. Pastor Alexander can also be heard on radio broadcast Bible Teachings every Sunday Morning from 10:30am - 10:45am on Z-16/1580AM.
