Below is a list of downloadable reference books that will aid a believer in a deeper understanding of the Word of God. These resources may contain in-depth material that is geared to the mature believer that understands the “issues” at stake. In a time where apostasy and compromise is rampant amongst so-called Bible believing churches, it is important to stand with Jude and declare that it is needful that we “exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 3).
First Baptist Church is committed to the preserved, infallible, inerrant Word of God and does not entirely endorse the entire contents of any book published on this site. We believe these resources offer a rich reading experience for each of the subjects listed and believe the “truths” contained in the pages can exert a positive biblical influence on any person that reads them with discretion and an open Bible. Our hope is that these materials will help you to “grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ” (II Peter 3:18).
To our knowledge, all material published on this website is in the public domain or has been granted permission from the author to publish this material to help in the cause of Christ and the ministry of the church.
The Biblical, Predestined, Sovereign Plan of Salvation - This manual exposes the fallacies in the Calvinistic presuppositions of the T.U.L.I.P., exposes the erroneous interpretation of "predestination" verses, and explains how Biblical predestination allows for free choice. Authored by Dr. Patrick Briney.
The King James Version Defended - Has the text of the New Testament, like those of other ancient books, been damaged by its voyage over the seas of time? Ought the same methods of textual criticism to be applied to it that are applied to the texts of other ancient books? These are questions which the following pages will endeavor to answer. Authored by Dr. Edward F. Hills.
The Soulwinner - "Soulwinning is the chief business of the Christian minister; indeed, it should be the main pursuit of every true believer." This book has been considered a classic on the subject of witnessing for Christ. Authored by Charles Spurgeon.
No Turning Back - This booklet is aimed at discipleship and teaching new believers the basics of Bible doctrine and practice. It equips the saints by covering the very basic tenants of the Christian faith and hopes that the student will allow the Holy Spirit to guide them into all truth. Authored by Church of the Open Door in Westminster, Maryland.
Forever Settled - This book is an exhaustive examination of the history of the Bible - from the time that it was breathed out by God, through its various stages of transmission, down to its present form in our day. It recognizes that the promises within Scripture declare just as forcibly its preservation as it does its inspiration - that both are supernatural. Authored by Jack Moorman.
Daily Time with God - This worksheet will aid you in your personal devotions. This worksheet was referenced in the audio sermon entitled, "Problems Solved by Hope in Scripture." Please reference that message for more information. Authored by Pastor Jose Santos.
