We here of First Baptist Church are excited to announce our first Bible Conference –
The conference was envisioned as a means to help both church members and non-members to approach the race we have before us with Grace and power. Our desire is to equip believers for the ongoing race of life, but also to help those who feel they have no hope at all to see that they too have an avenue – a lane in this race – and Who can help them through, while drawing form Hebrews 12 as our conference cornerstone, each speaker will bring to the conference a message of hope, of grace, and the Joy found only in running the race before us with Jesus as our Savior.
SUNDAY, April 8– Harold Smith: “Examples From The Cloud” – Mirroring our Race after those who came before. (Hebrews 11-12).
- Our first guest speaker is Bro. Harrold Smith, pastor of Lee Creek Baptist Church in Van Buren, Arkansas. Bro. Smith, who is also an avid outdoorsman, brings to the conference a passion for God and His Sovereign Grace, a love for God’s people, and a faithful history of bringing Bible teaching faithfully and with passion. Bro Harold and his home church host the Preachers of Grace Conference each year for pastors, preachers and laymen from a wide area.
MONDAY, April 9- Anthony Crocker: “Running the Race for the Joy That Is Set Before Us” (Hebrews 12:1-11)
- Anthony (Tony) Crocker currently serves as the pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church in Greenbrier, Arkansas.

Bro. Nelson is passionate about teaching the Word in a way that makes a real difference to whatever audience he has the opportunity to speak to. His focus often turns back to the absolute Holiness of God and how that provides so much to our understanding of our Creator and how humbling it is to be called to walk (or run!) with Christ daily. Allen is currently in the final stages of seeing the publication of his first book, From Death To Life. Bro. Nelson is husband to Stephanie Nelson, and father of 5 incredible kids!
