The Arabic Christian Theater;
The Drama ministry of the Arabic Baptist Church, involves a group of people who started at the church few years ago. The team members write, direct and perform the plays. The Drama team presents two plays annually, one during the annual church conference in early July and the second during the New Year's Evening celebration on December 31st.
The Team uses current time issues and real life stories that are related to our Middle Eastern culture merging into the American culture to promote various Christian ethics and to shed the light on some of the problems facing the twenty first century church. The Team also attempts to promote the Gospel of Jesus Christ in an easy to understand dialogue. They also try to bring some of the most wonderful Bible stories to life through theatrical performances.
The church encourages any interested member or attendee to join the Drama Team. You may contact Dr. Ashraf Selim who is leading this ministry. We are always looking for actors and actresses. Writers are always encouraged to join the A.C.T. team especially those who write for the Christian theater whether in English or Arabic. We are always looking for fresh ideas and scripts.
We thank our Lord for using this effort as a tool to glorify His Wonderful Name.

The Living Stone and a Chosen People
As you come to him, the living Stone—rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in Scripture it says:
“See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a chosen and precious cornerstone,
and the one who trusts in him
will never be put to shame.”
Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe,
“The stone the builders rejected
has become the cornerstone,”
“A stone that causes people to stumble
and a rock that makes them fall.”
They stumble because they disobey the message—which is also what they were destined for.
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
