Larry Baker is a pastor with a zeal for God and His Kingdom that permeates every area of his life. His excitement about loving and serving God and people compels him daily as he ministers to people from all walks of life. Whether he is preaching sermons, ministering to his family and his congregation, encouraging other ministers, reaching out to the lost and those in need, or sharing the gospel in foreign lands, He is 100% engaged in building the Kingdom of God.


Larry received his Master of Divinity Degree from the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in 1976. He and his wife Diana and their family moved to the Atlanta area in 1978. They founded Word of Faith Church (now Prayer and Praise Christian Fellowship) in 1980 and have pastored the church since that  time.  

Diana Baker has a deep love for God and for people and enjoys using her God-given gifts and talents to further the Kingdom of God. She ministers at Prayer and Praise as co-pastor, worship leader, pianist, and teacher. She is also a writer, editor, songwriter, and blogger who uses her skills to write sermons, Bible lessons, worship music, blog posts, articles, poetry, and children’s stories.

She is currently President of Christian Authors Guild and a member of Word Weavers Woodstock, two community groups that meet monthly at Prayer and Praise.
