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!!

Why Some Are Seeking Change

Through the years, most local Churches of Christ have been known for their male leadership of the local congregation, belief in the necessity of baptism, rejection of instrumental music in worship, and a few other "distinctive" doctrines. However, some within those churches are pushing for change. Increasing numbers of Christians are not just questioning some of the beliefs and practices often associated with Churches of Christ, but want churches to go in a different direction. Why is this happening? Why are some so diligently pushing for change? In a series of three lessons we look at some of the reasons many have grown dissatisfied with what they would call the "traditions" of the Churches of Christ and we invite your careful consideration of these studies.

Family: Parents and Children

When parents bring a newborn baby home for the first time, there is both excitement and anxiety. There is joy over the blessing of a new life, but for most there is also an understandable concern about their ability to take care of this infant. While the Scriptures do not tell you how to handle colic, earaches, introduction of solid foods, etc., they will guide you in the most important part of your child's upbringing. Please give thoughtful consideration to these lessons on bringing up children in the training and admonition of the Lord.

Walk Just as He Walked

Those who are in the right relationship with God are said to "walk just as He walked" (1 John 2:6), but how much do you know about how the Savior walked? We invite you to listen carefully to these lessons on the example left for us by Jesus.

Jesus and the Word

Are you seeking to “walk just as He walked” (1 Jn. 2:6)? Are you seeking to be transformed into His image (2 Cor. 3:18)? If so, you must have the same attitude toward the word of God that He had and in this lesson we seek to learn just what that attitude was. We hope you will give thoughtful consideration to this lesson, but be prepared—it may cause you to rethink the ideas you have about Jesus and the word.
