Rev. Dr. Bell was born in Brunswick, Georgia and grew up in a family where church attendance and worship was a mandatory part of their lives. That foundation built the basis of her desire to serve and abide in the will of God today.
She accepted salvation 1972 in her local church. Over the years, she served in the role of Sunday school teacher, Assistant to the Pastor, and Deacon. She also developed and chaired the usher and evangelism ministries. During this time she heard the call from God to tell the world about Him. She began studying at the Bible Institute of God to minister the gospel at her local church. As her growth in Christ continued, she received training and licensing under New Birth Deliverance Ministries in Fort Washington, Maryland and was ordained at Calvary Gospel Church, Waldorf, Maryland. She enhanced her theological foundation with study at Maple Springs Baptist Bible Seminary and obtained a Doctorate of Ministry from Calvary Christian College.
In a desire to serve more, SLS Ministries, Inc. was founded in 2003. In keeping the great commission on the forefront, SLS is an outreach forum to share Christ with the world through conferences, seminars and workshops and other evangelistic outreaches.
Dr. Bell was co-pastor of His Place Worship Center and taught daily on The New Joy 100.3 radio station in Brunswick, GA. She is also an author that published Manna Moments, a daily devotional for personal bible study over the internet. Prior to that, she was a contributing author to the book 100 Words of Wisdom, which was used in a national domestic violence campaign fundraiser. Desiring to share the gospel she has taught an outreach bible study at a shelter in Washington, DC, a weekly bible study in a government agency, local county jail. She traveled throughout the country to speak at conferences, Sunday morning worship services, retreats and workshops. As the result of social conscious contributions in her community, Rev. Bell was a 2009 Charles County Women Commission Honoree and the recipient of the 2012 AKA Nu Zeta Omega Honoree for Social Justice/Human Rights Award. She also received several Maryland Governor Awards and Congressional awards.
In a desire to be a servant used by God, Rev. Bell had a heart for studying of the Word, firmly believing that God's people will perish from a lack of knowledge of the things of God. The commandment to love one another covers our lives and will allow us to serve one another as Christ served mankind. She was a true deliverance warrior who ministered to many and had compassion for those who were suffering especially women. She appointed a team to continue SLSministries that was consecrated in January 2019. SLS Ministries continues the ministry of evangelizing...sisters lifting sisters, saints lifting souls.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to preach the Gospel to the poor; He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners (Isaiah 61:1).
Lyn is an active member of the church where I am the senior pastor. She enjoys worship and is quite enthusiastic about the Word of God. Lyn has a tremendous gift of communication and is a devout student of Scripture. - Dr. Timothy Wood, Senior Pastor, Calvary Gospel Church
A woman of God used mightily of the Lord, flowing in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. She emphasizes biblical truths when delivering a message, which results in revelation of the Scriptures. - Pastor Marion Hughes, Zion Ministries
I have been an attendee at many of the events sponsored by her ministry, SLS Ministries, Inc. Ms. Bell is a dynamic speaker who offers profound wisdom and insight in a layperson's terms. Ms. Bell engages the audience in her discussion and is not afraid to deviate from the script if led by the Holy Spirit. I am always encouraged and motivated when I depart from an event in which Ms. Bell has spoken, so I believe that she would be a tremendous asset to you. - Satyra Riggins
I know Evangelist Lyn Bell as a friend and colleague in the ministry. Evangelist Bell loves the Lord with her whole heart and has the heart of a servant. She is a very articulate speaker, an excellent counselor, a highly gifted evangelist, and an easy-to-understand teacher. - Rev. Shellie Polk

We believe and teach that the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God given to us to govern our lives. (2 Peter 1.20,21).
We believe and teach that there is but one God Who is infinite in power, holy in His nature, attributes and purpose: omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (all-knowing), omnipresent (everywhere). We teach that He revealed to us the Father in creation, the Son in redemption, and the Holy Spirit in His comforting grace that never leaves those who trust in Him.
(I Corinthians 8:6; Ephesians 4:6; 2 Corinthians 5:19; Joel 2:28).
We believe and teach that in Jesus Christ dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; for it pleased the Father that in Him should all the fullness dwell. (Colossians 2:9; Colossians 1:19).
We believe and teach the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. We teach that He ascended on high and has sent His Spirit (the Holy Spirit, the Holy Ghost) which was poured out at Jerusalem over 2000 years ago, and is still filling the hearts of those who diligently seek Him today. (Acts 2:14).
We believe and teach baptism by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; we further believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance. (Acts 2:4, 38).
