Bishop Arinzor Blue was born January 28, 1972 to Elder Roland Blue and Mother Shirley Blue of Farmingdale, New Jersey. Pastor Blue’s early education in Roselle, New Jersey, his love of family, and strong community ties laid the foundation for God’s call on his life.
Accepting Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior at the age of seven, Pastor Blue’s anointing came to fruition when he preached his first sermon when he was only twenty-one. Bishop Blue has been a member of Faith Temple #1 Original Free Will Baptist Church, East Orange, New Jersey, over 28 years, where he served under the fine tutelage of Bishop L.N. Forbes. He was ordained an Elder of the Middle Eastern District Original Free Will Baptist Conference of America in 1994.
Mentored and guided by the Honorable Bishop L.N. Forbes, Bishop Blue became the Assistant Pastor of Faith Temple #1 in 2003. After years of faithful service, Bishop Forbes appointed him as Pastor of Faith Temple #1 on September 8, 2013. Pastor Blue was officially installed as Pastor of Faith Temple #1 and Faith Temple #1 and #2 Extension Church on December 7, 2013.
Under his leadership, Faith Temple #1 has experienced steady growth in its membership and has achieved many other noteworthy accomplishments. Bishop Blue has implemented faith-based workshops and seminars, hosted annual community days in both New Jersey and North Carolina; conducted street crusades, and facilitated community outreach and social service ministries.
On May 30, 2015, he was appointed as Bishop-Elect by Bishop LaVaughn Hughes, Sr., Presiding Bishop of the Middle Eastern District Original Free Will Baptist Church of America and on October 31, 2016, he was installed as a Bishop in the Middle Eastern District Original Free Will Baptist Church of America.
In January of 2021, Bishop Blue became the 14th Pastor of Leventon Chapel Original Free Will Baptist Church in Stantonsburg, NC. In July 2021, Faith Temple #1 and #2 Extension Church officially merged with Leventon Chapel Church to become one united body of believers. A new season of fruitfulness began.
Pastor Blue is married to the former Loria Martin and they are the proud parents of two sets of twins, Isaiah and Elijah and Micah and Micaiah, and another daughter, Moriah.
Our mission as a church is to fulfill the command that Christ gave the disciples that is to “go therefore and make disciples in all nations….teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you… (Matthew 28:19-20).
