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!!

Changing Our Speech Habits

 

By John R. Gibson

 

Old habits are hard to break!

 

That statement is much more than an old adage, for anyone who has ever tried to stop biting their nails, sought to break the nicotine habit, or tried to change their eating habits knows how difficult it can be to eliminate long-established practices from one’s life. And when it comes to the spiritual realm, old, sinful habits are just as hard to break as relatively insignificant things like biting one’s nails.

Is Baptism Essential to Pleasing God?

 

By John R. Gibson

 

To say that questions about baptism generate controversy is to be guilty of vast understatement. Issues regarding baptism’s significance and importance can inflame passions and while I do not expect this article to put an end to all arguing, I do hope that simply allowing the Bible to speak will be helpful.

Prayer and Bible Reading

 

By John R. Gibson

 

This year our elders have sought to place a special emphasis on prayer and we will be continuing with that emphasis in this evening’s lesson. Keep in mind that this year’s focus on prayer is intended to help us form habits that will stay with us after we turn the page on the 2017 calendar. This evening I want to look again at how we can use our Bible readings to more effectively pray (James 5:16).

The Need for Distinctive Preaching

 

By Jim Deason

 

In the shadow of the cross Jesus prayed, “I do not ask on behalf of these alone (the apostles—jhd) but for those also who believe in Me through their word (me and you—jhd); that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me” (Jn. 17:20-21). Our Savior left little doubt that He wanted believers to be united. Unity is a living testimony to the world and deity of Jesus.

Meditations for the Lord’s Supper

 

By John R. Gibson

 

Christians seeking to follow the New Testament pattern gather each first day of the week to eat the Lord’s Supper (Acts 20:7). They also realize that this Supper is to be eaten in remembrance of Jesus’ death and with a full awareness of what they are doing (1 Corinthians 11:23-29). Since those who eat and drink in an unworthy manner become weak, sick and even spiritually dead (1 Corinthians 11:30), the disciple who does the opposite and partakes in a worthy manner finds in the Lord’s Supper and its communion with the body and blood of Jesus (1 Corinthians 10:16) an opportunity to be strengthened spiritually.
