  • A new walk for a new man

    When you accept the grace of God by faith, trusting in the finished work of Christ on the cross for your sin, you become a child of God.

    Paul says in 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature … all things have become new.”

    For the new Christian a metamorphose takes place like the caterpillar being transformed into a butterfly. Spiritually, we are a new person in Christ.

  • COLUMN: Time changes as man ages

    What Happened to Time?
    When as a child I laughed and wept, time crept.
    When as a youth I dreamed and talked, time walked.
    When I became a full-grown man, time ran.
    And later, as older I grew, time flew.
    Soon I shall find, while traveling on, time gone!
    Author unknown

    Have you noticed how time has changed?   

  • Local church goes beyond their borders to spread the word

    One-thousand six-hundred fifty-two: the number of miles between Hodgenville and San Pedro De Macoris, Dominican Republic. It’s the same number of miles a group from a local church traveled to do what they felt they were being called to do.
    First Baptist Church in Hodgenville has been working in the San Pedro area since a trip there in March yielded favorable results. According to Senior Pastor Paul Richey, the whole thing came about because of a storybook.

  • COLUMN: Our greatest sin is forgetting God

    We are blessed to live in America. James Buchanan, in his 1857 inaugural address said, "No nation in the tide of time has ever been blessed with so rich and noble inheritance as we enjoy." These words could as easily have been said today.

    James MacArthur, in his book, Can God Bless America, says, "America wants God's blessing, but not God. Our nation has systemically pushed him out of the national consciousness - rejecting Biblical morality, ignoring his word, and relying on the political and entertainment arenas for moral guidance."

  • Campbellsville University and Kentucky Baptist Convention leaders discuss new partnership

    Representatives from Campbellsville University met with Kentucky Baptist Convention leaders on Wednesday, Aug. 13, to report that the CU Board of Trustees voted to remove itself from its Covenant Agreement with the KBC and enter into discussions regarding a partnership agreement that will allow the university and Kentucky Baptists to work together on shared ministry and mission ventures in the future.

  • First Baptist Hodgenville celebrates its 134th anniversary

    Last weekend was busy and one of the most exciting weekends of the year. The weekend started with a get-together at the American Legion on Friday. The annual Cobb family reunion was Saturday. This event has been a popular celebration for the community and surrounding area. Many family and friends travel from a distance to attend the reunion. The reunion consisted of good food, games, prizes and fun for everyone. This is the start of many family reunions throughout the community.

  • Our obedience leads to salvation

    Redeemed, justified, sanctified, saved: These are terms that Christians throw around and assume that everyone knows what they are talking about. If they ask someone, "Are you saved?" The person may say, "Saved? Saved from what?"

    Saved has been defined as "to deliver or rescue." The word "saved" is used in various ways: rescue from injury or peril, rescue from perishing such as drowning, or deliver one who is in danger of destruction by fire. All these meet the definition above.

  • Satan distracts from our spiritual life

    There is a devil. Jesus says in John 8:44, “You are of your father, the devil .…” Since Jesus does not lie, we know that there is an evil one called the devil or Satan.

    Satan had been working overtime in the church at Corinth. Paul tells the Corinthians they must be vigilant and be alert against their adversary, since Satan’s advantage is based upon one being ignorant of his schemes or methods.

  • Price of spiritual power: a living sacrifice

    How much is the average Christian aware of the concept of sacrifice in the Christian life? The Apostle Paul pleads with us to be a living sacrifice, because he says it is reasonable in light of what Christ has done for us and there can be no success without it.

    To have power with God and man we must give ourselves wholly to God. Someone said that God does not need much of a man, but he needs all there is of him. The price of spiritual power is an entire surrender to God.
