Welcome to Jones Road!

What is the Jones Road church? We are a group of Christians who have made it our aim to be no more and no less than that which we read about in the New Testament. We are “of Christ” because He is our Savior and King and our goal is to allow His word to control all we do.

Our building is located nine miles east of Athens, Alabama on Jones Road. If you are in North Alabama, please stop by and visit us. You are always welcome!!

Who Sinned?

By John R. Gibson

 

Israel was at the edge of Canaan when twelve leaders were told to spy out the land and then report back on both the inhabitants of Canaan and the nature of the land itself (Num. 13:1-20). As most readers are aware, they were unanimous in reporting that the land did indeed flow with “milk and honey” (Num. 13:27), but when it came to the people and their fortifications the spies were divided. While Joshua and Caleb affirmed that the land could be taken, ten of the spies gave a bad report, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we….and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight” (Num. 13:31-33).

Plain Words about Dress (Or Lack Thereof)

No, complete public nakedness is still uncommon, but when Adam hid because he was naked, could his fig leaves have covered much less than the swimsuits of some Christians as they lounge by the pool, lay out at the beach, or hang out at the water park.

Who Will Be Saved?

By John R. Gibson

 

An Awkward Situation

Have you ever been asked, “Do you think you have to be a member of the Church of Christ to be saved?” Or perhaps it was put to you this way, “You think you are the only ones going to heaven, don’t you?” I know I have been asked such questions a few times and have found myself struggling for an answer that would be true to God’s word and, at the same time, not close the door to the possibility of converting the one asking the question. I have not always done a good job in answering such questions, but I would like to offer for your consideration an approach suggested to me by another gospel preacher.
