International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church.,The first two Sundays of November are set apart to remember and pray for the persecuted church. Today’s greatest untold story is that more than 100 million Christians worldwide face persecution for their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church (IDOP) is a time set apart for us to remember our Christian brothers and sisters around the world who suffer persecution, simply because they confess Jesus Christ as Lord.

Every month, 322 Christians are killed for their faith in Jesus Christ.
Every month, 214 Christina churches and properties are destroyed.
Prayer is the number one request from persecuted Christians. In America, more than 52 million attend church on a weekly basis, we can make an impact through our prayers, service and giving

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 (KJV) 9  ..My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.

We are again sharing the love of Jesus and celebrate His birthday by reaching others with a gift at Christmas time.  More than a 1,000 children are in need and we believe that Matthew 25:40 teaches that we are to help the “least of these.”  Those 1000 children’s names have already been chosen.  Please consider being apart of this year’s Christmas Project by:  1)  praying for these folks in need, 2)  buying gifts for them (beginning November 3), 3)  helping to wrap the gifts at Family Central (Nov. 27th-Dec. 2th) as an individual or as a group, or 4) giving money to buy needed items.  A call to Ashe Baptist Association (336-846-5631 or an email to will answer all your questions and sign you up to help.

In addition to the call for our Ashe County churches and organizations to send volunteers to sort and wrap Christmas presents for our children this year, we also can use help providing snacks and drinks for all volunteers!  If your group is unable to help with the physical labor, perhaps some may be willing to sign up to bring light refreshments for one day of the Project (Nov. 27th-Dec.2th).  This generous contribution would be for approximately 20-25 people.  We would need you to bring the refreshments to the cafeteria at Family Central around mid-morning.

Many thanks to all who make this incredible ministry possible!

Ashe Baptist Association Ministers, Wives & Church Staff mark your calendars for the annual Christmas Dinner. This year we will celebrate on Thursday, December 7th at 6:30 pm at Friendship Baptist Church.

Empowering, Mobilizing, Creating Atmosphere for Churches


I still think REVIVALS are very important! Today folks have REVIVALS for 3 days or 5 days. They meet at one church with same speaker or at several churches with different speakers. We can be REVIVED by our selves if we meet with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords!  This is in great contrast to the revivals of the past. Some of the greatest REVIVALS in history, lead by such men as Jonathan Edwards, Charles Spurgeon, Charles Finney, etc... had at their center one thing: repentance. The word of God was boldly preached, and people became so convicted about the  holiness of God and their total unworthiness, that they fell to their knees in sorrow, contrition, humility, and reverence for God. The floors of the meeting places would be filled with people laying on the floor weeping. People were not focused on God's love, they were focused on God's mercy. The word "revive" means to bring back to life, or to restore. This is what REVIVAL is supposed to be about. It is meant to bring back or restore our relationship with the Lord. And, what is it that breaks our fellowship and  relationship with God: SIN. How do we bring back to life that fellowship and relationship: confession and repentance? One of the ways is through genuine REVIVAL. So do we need REVIVAL?          I believe so! Southern Baptist lost 200,000 members over the past year. We are down to 15.3 million members. Average weekly worship attendance declined by 1.72 %. The average size of a Southern Baptist Church is 327 members. The Annual Church Profile  shows many faithful Southern Baptist continue to worship, share the gospel, give generously and live in communities with other believes. We praise God for these effort each year. We do not take for granted the 295,000 baptisms last year! We rejoice with each of those individuals who chose to follow Christ. A great work continues in Southern Baptist life such as Medical Missions, Baptist Men and Women  providing Disaster Relief, over 3,500 Foreign Missionaries and over 6,000 missionaries in North America. The list goes on,  too many to list here. For me REVIVALS can be and should be what leads the way for more folks to know Christ. As the church is REVIVED it should lead all of us to be about the Fathers business, to share what Christ has done for us so that others will choose Christ to be their Savior.   When Christians turn back completely and wholeheartedly to the Lord in repentance, we will experience REVIVAL!  So many Christians pray for this nation to experience revival and healing, as (2 Chr 7:14) says, "if my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then I will hear from heaven, and forgive their sin, and heal their land". This is the formula for REVIVAL and healing. If you are personally in a backslidden condition, this is also how you can experience a REVIVAL in your own life. Humble yourself and repent, possibly even fast, and when you do, you will find refreshing mercy and a new heart and spirit. Are REVIVALS a thing of the past? I do not think so! Having a time to allow God’s Holy Spirit to speak to us in a special way is a good thing. We need more time with God and God’s people, NOT THE WORLD! We reproduce after the people we spend time with so why not spend time with a REVIVED Christian and see if we will not become a REVIVED Christian too! We need REVIVAL in our land and country. May it begin in us! Support REVIVALS in your area and you may be the one who is REVIVED! Remember that REVIVAL is for the Church but when the church is REVIVED then more folks come to know Christ and His work grows in lots of areas that pleases God. See you at REVIVAL!
