ASSOCIATION NEWS UPDATE
The Psalmist writes in Psalm 19 that God's Word is the only qualified guide for every problem we face in life as it relates to my spiritual life. God created us and knows better than anyone (even the experts) how we should be living our lives. Why should we, as spiritual leaders, counsel people to turn to other sources of authority for the answers they seek when God has promised to give us ALL we need for life and godliness through His Spirit and through His Word? (2 Peter 1:3-4). My brothers, God has given us a perfect counseling book which is applicable to every struggle facing mankind. The Gospel offers hope to a world that is lost and struggling in the grips of sin!
I have personally witnessed many lives changed and marriages reconciled, even transformed, through my own personal ministry of biblical counseling.
- Pastor Mike Dixon
Practical Helps for a Complicated Assignment
Fruitland Baptist Bible College offers classes in the Rocky Mount area on an ongoing basis. Beginning in January, one of the classes offered will be “Pastoral Ministry.” This class touches most of the issues and responsibilities encountered by anyone who does this kind of ministry.

Some of the issues covered are:
