Michael Ware


     Michael Ware is an Elder at Holly Ridge Baptist Church. Michael initially made a profession of faith at the young age of nine, and was subsequently baptized at Oak Grove Baptist Church. Although he professed to be a believer at the time, he proved otherwise. After several years of licentious living, God revealed his holiness to Michael and, thus, also made him aware of his own sinfulness. After repenting, he felt that it was necessary to be baptized as a believer. Michael came to the Doctrines of Grace in 2003. He is a native of Kings Mountain, N.C., and a 1991 graduate of Kings Mountain High School. Michael has also attended Fruitland Baptist Bible Institute in Hendersonville, N. C., and plans to further his theological education in the future. Michael is the owner of a local construction company, which he started after serving as an apprentice for his father. Michael is blessed to be the husband of Virginia, and the father of Emilee.  Michael is now a published author and it is available to download in "ebook" form at www.nicenecouncil.com
