Franklin pastor builds relationships, makes significant impact with jail ministry
It's not the "Free Behind Bars" t-shirt that Franklin Community Church Senior Pastor Eric Walker wears that grabs the attention of inmates at the Simpson County Detention Center. Instead, it's his testimony of "been there, done that." He uses his life story to explain to prisoners how they can have hope and a future — a new life through faith in Christ.
'The Power of New Life' is the appropriate theme for this month as we celebrate Easter and the resurrection power of Jesus. Our goal is to focus attention on the most crucial need anyone has — to experience the new life that comes only through faith in Jesus.
Followers of Jesus need to celebrate God's great work every time we can. One way we do that in Kentucky Baptist churches is through baptism.
Kentucky Baptists plan to take the gospel to every home

More than shaking off the winter blues, for us Christ followers, these colorful signs of a changing season announce the coming of the day we celebrate the hope of our salvation — the glorious resurrection of Christ.
We need people who will climb into the pit, but also people who will hold the rope for them. There are many ways we can be rope holders as Kentucky Baptists. Our giving and our praying are two vital ways in which we hold the rope for our missionaries.
Do we seek God for discernment in any and all decisions of our lives? Jesus relied on the communion with His Father to sustain Him through life. How about you? Are you holding your breath or praying to sustain life?
Prayer has been critical element to Oneida's success
God's sustaining grace is the reason for the longevity of Oneida Baptist Institute, and the Lord has used many people to continue what our founder, James Anderson Burns, began 120 years ago.
A discipline that is learned and lived
Oikonomia means the act of managing what belongs to another person. A person is not born with this knowledge of stewardship, it has to be learned from other wise, mature Christians.
