So what is in store for BHBC this new year? First, as a church we are being encouraged to grow/mature in prayer and evangelism.

Second, several of our SS classes have combined for the purpose of studying “systematic theology.” We are using... [Read more]

I will be ending Romans either on May 5 or May 12. Right now I am leaning toward May 5. I am planning on taking the summer to cover the doctrine of the church.... [Read more]

Andrew, Shelia, Olivia, Hudson, and Jackson arrived at BHBC Parsonage on December 29. I (Jason E) had a chance to sit down with Andrew recently to introduce myself and give him the “ins and outs” of the home they will be living in for the next six months. We had a nice visit, and I learned that their time in Person County will not be all “rest.”... [Read more]

Meet our Elders

Filed under blog

Here on the Hill we are moving forward in obedience to the teaching of Scripture. A few Sundays back our church  ”ordained” our elders. Just what is ordination? It is not the conferring of special grace (as in Catholicism). It is simply the setting apart, the commissioning, the consecrating to a particular ministry in the church. As such,... [Read more]

A few week back our family at BethelHill — and we are family! — enjoyed an evening of food and fellowship as we celebrated God’s goodness to us and to our pastor Jason Evans in allowing him to finish his Ph.D. at the seminary.

As you know, many Hillions are spending their summer weeks in intentional outreach for the Savior. India, Ethiopia, Kentucky, inner-city, migrant workers….we touching many different folk with the Gospel. Missions is always a cooperative task. Think of the four men in Mark 2 who brought the paralytic to Jesus. It took real unity to get him there. Mission... [Read more]

We had a wonderful time at Westwood Baptist with Pastor Masih. I have already grown to love that man. He is a man of prayer if nothing else. He wanted to pray when I picked him at the airport. He wanted to pray after I had blessed our first meal together at Bradford Hall. He wanted to hold a prayer meeting in our library last night. (We did.) Matthew... [Read more]

For a couple years we have included the persecuted believers in our congregation. We are beginning to take seriously the command from the book of Hebrews, “remember those in prison”.

Last week in Sunday School, Chris continued leading us thru the book of Philippians. We arrived at 1:12-26 with the theme “exalt Christ above all”.  From prison, on death row, Paul wrote these words: Now I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really served to advance the gospel. As a result, it has become clear... [Read more]

As I walked out onto the pier and along the beach at the Women’s Retreat, I was impressed with the vastness of the ocean. It went on ‘forever’, and its waves on the beach were so predictable. Their ceaseless rolling onto the sand, one after another, each wave a little different, but each wave covering the beach. And my mind went... [Read more]

The spring Women’s Retreat is now history. And what a weekend it was! The best part was not the food, nor the setting by the beach, nor the speakers. The best part was the spiritual connectedness that we women enjoyed with each other. Fifteen women from all walks of life shared life together for a few days. While doing various things, we... [Read more]

 The great preacher C.H.Spurgeon was quite ill when he preached on Ps 31:15. His words are an   encouragement to me. I trust they are to you and yours:  ”Lastly, if our times are in God’s hand, here is A GRAND ARGUMENT FOR FUTURE BLESSEDNESS. He that takes care of our times, will take care of our eternity.

“I’m Fine!”

 ”Good morning! How are you?”   The man I was greeting sat at the end of the pew, dressed in his Sunday suit. It seemed to me that he was used to being in that location each Sunday morning. I was speaking in the service that morning, presenting an update on the Lord’s work in Ethiopia. (Yes, in the midst of Stage IV cancer treatments,... [Read more]
