My husband and I are long-time members of First Baptist Church, Jacksonville, Arkansas. The Bible lessons on this site are weekly studies that I prepare for my adult Sunday School Class. We also share the same material through our First Baptist Church prison ministry at the Maximum Security Unit at Tucker, Arkansas.
We believe the Holy Bible is inspired by God, without error in the original manuscripts.
We believe in one God in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, the only begotten Son of God.
We believe in Jesus’ virgin birth, sinless life, sacrificial death, bodily resurrection, ascension to the Father, and His triumphant return.
This is how we believe a person comes to know Jesus as Savior.
Romans 3:23 - for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Romans 5:8 - But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 6:23 - For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 10:9 - That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Romans 10:13 - for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."
We also believe that Jesus is the only way to heaven.
John 14:6 (ESV) 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
