I just wrapped up uploading the notes for over two hundred lessons from various series I have taught during Sunday School or Wednesday Bible Studies. This is the largest amount of material that I have ever made available, far surpassing the material for over one hundred fifty podcasts.
I was recently able to record a two-part lecture series that covers the basics of Baptist beliefs and history. These were done as prerecorded services at Faith Baptist Church in Decatur, TX, during the COVID-19 pandemic. I have given these lectures a few times and hope that they will be a blessing to others.
I’m excited to announce that I have just posted the information on Biblical coins that was among the more popular pages from the old website. I’ve combined the original pages that covered the general overview and the KJV coinage terms. I’ve also added a short new section on coinage and money in the Old Testament.. You can find it all here.
On July 4, 2007, BaptistBasics.org was born. Well, they idea actually began while I was in Bible college in Lexington, Kentucky. That original concept was something of an “umbrella” ministry that could host many resources. I was finally inspired by a friend of mine to launch a website after he had done the same.
I had built the original versions of this site by had, going from simple HTML tags to integrating PHP and CSS. Over time it has simply become too burdensome to do all that background work.
So much has changed for me in these past twelve years. My family has grown from one child to four. I was teaching Sunday School along with a few other duties. Now I’m the pastor of Faith Baptist Church in Decatur, Texas.
So, here we go again. A fresh look. A fresh start. I’ll get some of the old articles and resources back online in the coming weeks. Hopefully I’ll be able to add some new information. I’m looking forward to incorporating a blog to the offerings where I can add some more random content.
Twelve years from now, I wonder what this little website of mine will be.
