Pastor Dr. Rander E. Draper, Sr. founded Maranatha Bible Church in 1988 after being led by the Spirit of God to plant a Bible teaching church in Northeast San Antonio. Maranatha Bible Church is committed to being a Bible teaching church where the Word of God is the final authority in the life and decisions of the church. Maranatha exists to bring glory to God through our worship and is committed to building up the Body of Christ through the ministry of prayer.
Maranatha is a mission-minded church that is committed to assembling together for fellowship and the administration of the ordinances of baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We are dedicated to winning souls for Christ and equipping the saints for the work of ministry. We strive to strengthen the family unit and to be a haven of love encouragement and acceptance for all peoples.
