The Gospel Messengers have been spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ through music for over fortysix years. From our beginning in Richland, Mississippi, The Gospel Messengers have toured extensively, proclaming our Lord through song and testimony. Now based in Crystal Springs, Mississippi, we are continuing our ministry of serving and sharing Jesus Christ. Rooted in traditional Southern Gospel, our ministry incorporates both traditional and modern Gospel musical arrangements.

If you ask the question "What is Christmas", you will get a lot of different answers. If you were asked to complete the following, "Christmas is ___________", how would you fill in the blank? Overwhelmingly, we would hear "The Birth of Jesus". However, when we ask people to describe Christmas, we get all the familiar answers: the shepherds, the Wisemen, the star, the angels singing, etc. The younger folks might talk about: Christmas trees, shopping, friends, or even, Santa Clause. Is this really what makes the 25th day of December Christmas.
When Gloria and I wrote "Christmas Day", which we have on our project "Filled With Joy", these are the questions that we tried to answer. Basically, we tried to describe what Christmas wasn't so that we could see what it truly was. The first Christmas Day was when "God's perfect plan became a man." But for much of the world, it was still 'just another day'. As I look back on my life, the real meaning of Christmas didn't come until December 25, 1961. This was the first Christmas after I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. That year this lost boy found The Christ, and like the Wisemen of that first Christmas, "I left another way."
Today, if you haven't accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, seek The Christ and find Him, and you can truly enjoy your "First Christmas Day".
"And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and fell down and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they prresented unto him gifts: gold, and frankincense, and myrrh. And being warned of God in a dream that they should not return to Herod, they departed into their on country another way." Matthew 2:11-12
