Senior Pastor


Meet Pastor Mark

His Story

I repented of my sins and trusted Christ as Lord and Savior in 1979. I find myself consistently to be a 'good' sinner; by 'good' I mean 'I am good at sinning.' I say that regretfully but honestly. Thankfully God is gracious and merciful. I am saved by His grace and seek to live for God's glory despite my constant imperfections. Because of God's grace I seek a holy pursuit to living. I pray my life highlights the goodness and power of God to save unworthy sinners like myself. God is good, and I am simply blessed by His mercy through Jesus Christ.


Dr. Mark Livingston has served as senior pastor of Keltys since 2006. Mark also serves as professor of Church Ministries at the Baptist Missionary Associational Theological Seminary in Jacksonville, Texas. He has earned an AA from Central Baptist College, a BA in psychology from the University of Mississippi, a Masters of Divinity from Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary, and a D.Min. from Covenant Theological Seminary.

Mark and his wife, Amanda, come from the Memphis, Tennessee area and are blessed with four children (Lacy, Micah, Landon, and Savannah). He enjoys reading, family, and running.

"For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, The righteous shall live by faith."
Romans 1:16-17
