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!!

Making the Lord’s Supper What It Should Be

By John R. Gibson

“Therefore whoever eats this bread or drinks this cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord….For he who eats and drinks in an unworthy manner eats and drinks judgment to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.” 1 Cor. 11:27, 29

The words guilty and judgment should get our attention and cause us to realize the manner in which we partake of the Lord’s Supper matters, so let’s think carefully about what needs to be done in order to make the memorial supper what it should be. What is needed to keep the Lord’s Supper from being a time of judgment instead of the time of worship and edification God intended?

Making Memories and Building Relationships

By John R. Gibson

Remington Model 870 Wingmaster. Do those words mean anything to you? A few probably recognize that as one of the most popular pump-action shotguns ever made, but even if you know the gun, you wonder why I would lead off with those words. No, I’m not really going to talk about guns, but making memories and building relationships.

But What If They Won’t Be Drawn?

By John R. Gibson

What wonderful news—the crucified Lord is to draw all to Himself and His gospel is God’s power to save! Yet some are not interested in the gospel and feel no need for Jesus in their lives, for the lifted up Christ and His teachings do not appeal to them. So what are we to do? This is an is-sue of real concern to all who care about the lost, who constitute the vast majority of people around us, often including friends and family. People are headed down the broad way and seem to have no interest in the message we are proclaiming, so what are we to do?

These Scriptures Are Not to Be Viewed As Obsolete!

By John R. Gibson

Last week we featured an article from my good friend, Mark W. White, entitled “Some Scriptures Are Now Obsolete!” In that article, he correctly reminded us the Lord had foretold in Jer. 31 the replacement of the covenant made at Sinai with a better covenant (cf. Heb. 8:7-13), and its institution by Jesus has made the Old Testament “obsolete” when it comes to being the law or standard under which we are to operate today. Bringing it down to the practical level, while we can learn much from the Old Testament about the power of God, the importance of trusting faith, the consequences of disobedience, and other important subjects, we can-not justify a separate priesthood, Sabbath observance, or instrumental mu-sic by pointing to their authorization in the Old Testament. If these things are to be defended, it must be by finding some indication in the New Testament that these are things God desires (Matt. 7:21).

Some Scriptures Are Now Obsolete!

By Mark W. White

Modern consumers have known about “planned obsolescence” for some time now. Anyone with a mobile phone, a computer, or even an automobile knows what this term means. Consumers of these products know when they purchase them that they will not last forever. There is a built-in expiration of their effectiveness. We buy electronic products with the awareness that new software will soon come along which will not operate on the hardware we just recently purchased. The product may be in perfect physical working order, but we know the clock is ticking on the usefulness of the product the moment we first charge it up and begin to use it. In fact, three years is a long lifespan in the digital world. Manufacturers plan for today’s products to become obsolete as new technology is introduced each succeeding year.

They’re Too Conservative

By Greg Gwin

Someone who was about to move into a new community happened to mention that they were giving consideration to attending a particular congregation in that area. Certain brethren warned, “Don’t go there, they’re too conservative!” What is meant by such an accusation?
