Welcome

Welcome!   Hardin Baptist is a multigenerational, SBC Church that is growing, friendly, and excited about what God is doing in our Church.

The Church in short: Average attendance for worship is around 160, with a great Nursery and Children's Church.

Worship is a blend of mostly hymns with some contemporary music, and some great soloists.

Classes (including nursery) for all ages at every service. (see schedule on left)

Located about 3 miles west of White Hall on Highway 270 (Sheridan Highway).

We love the Lord Jesus, one another, and would love to include you in our circle of family and friends.

Come see us this Sunday; let's worship Him together.        ~Pastor Johnny D. Taylor

    And He said to him, "Go, wash in the pool of Siloam" (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing. (John 9:7) 

     

    Our Church Campers are off to Siloam Springs next week! Please pray for safety, and especially that these precious kids and Counsellors (twenty-eight in all) have an encounter with the Lord God Almighty, and come back with a new vision of who the Lord Jesus Christ is. And may they bring a spark of revival back with them! 

     

    Remember that Sunday morning worship music and sermons can be accessed from here on the Church website.

  • Bread of Life

    Jesus is the Bread of Life, the source of everlasting life. At the core of every human is an original awareness that we as individuals are ultimately alone. But for the Believer there is Light in the darkness, and an Almighty Companion for our spirit. Here is the cure for our hunger and loneliness -- Jesus, the Bread of Life

    What is manhood according to God and His Word? As men we often struggle to live up to the title, "Godly, Christian Man". Here is a simple way to grow and stay balanced in our pursuit of manhood. Modeled on the Lord Jesus Christ as seen in the Old Testament, Gospels, and Revelation.

  • The Value of Your Sunday School

    Christ commanded the Church to make Disciples, lifelong followers of the Lord. One ministry that covers almost all areas of discipleship is a long standing small group ministry known as Sunday School. It is VERY valuable and important in three major ways. Here's why.

    God Bless,

    “Bless the LORD O my soul and all that is within me; bless His Holy Name” (Psalm 103)

     

    Progress is great! Here’s a short list of what’s been going on:

                The Stage remodel is complete except for the modesty panel in front of the choir chairs. The shiny black baby grand piano and the shiny black electric organ look very nice up there on that lovely blue carpet! Thanks to David Gammel for excellent work!

                Church Camp at Siloam Springs is paid in full! Thank you all for your generosity (enjoy those butter braids).

                Re-start of ministries went well last Sunday.

                We ordered our new sign.

                Furniture for the new foyer has been ordered and anonymously donated.

                The Lord has blessed us in more ways than we can count.

    Now in more detail:

     

    ***

     

    THANK YOU to those who made the re-start of our ministries last Sunday morning so successful! Our 10:00 Sunday School had almost SIXTY in attendance, our Nursery was open for both Sunday School hour and the 11:00 Worship Service, and the 11:00 Children’s Church had nine kids plus workers in attendance.

     

    ***

     

    ATTENTION! YOUR CHURCH NEEDS YOUR SERVICE AT LEAST ONE HOUR PER MONTH.

    If we are going to provide the Ministries listed above then we must have plenty of Workers. Please volunteer one Sunday a month to help work Nursery, Children’s Church, or Sunday School.

    COUPLES are strongly encouraged to work together.

     

    (Note: We require a criminal background check on all people working with minors so all parents will know we take the safety of their precious children seriously. This is a criminal background check only; it is not a financial/credit check or anything else.)

     

    Please fill out your Volunteer Form and drop it in an offering plate or at the Church Office.

    And THANKS for your willingness to serve the Lord and His Church.

     

    ***

     

    This Sunday’s Sermon will be: “The Value of Your Sunday School” ~2 Timothy 3:14-17, Hebrews 10:24-25

     

    ***

     

    Last Sunday’s message, “The Simple Gospel” (How to present the Romans Road) can be found on the Church website, Facebook, or directly on YouTube, CLICK HERE.

    “Keys to a Successful Life” (Graduates Honor Day) audio only, can be found, CLICK HERE.

     

    ***

     

    NEW DIGITAL SIGN: We’ve ordered our new sign to go out by the highway! It should be installed in 4-6 weeks. Meanwhile we need to raise the rest of the purchase price. Currently we need about $7,500 more in donations to cover the total cost. Please help us pay it off on time!

     

    From the Pastor: “I’ve seen it my entire ministry in every Church I’ve pastored. The best advertisement for a Church BY FAR is word-of-mouth, and a good big sign. Better than tv, radio, newspaper, even social media, these two avenues of outreach will account for 90% or more of effective outreach.”

    God bless you for your generosity.

     

    ***

     

    Lastly, what great opportunities we have before us as the Lord has faithfully kept us going through a most difficult year. I stand constantly amazed at His goodness, grace, and His apparent future plans for this, His Church. Let’s look to the future with joyful anticipation and serve together with Him for His glory and the good of all.

     

    “Bless the LORD O my soul and forget not all His benefits…” (Psalm 103:2)

    The incredible freedoms we enjoy in the United States of America we bought at an awful price. Make the most of them!

    The Freedoms we have in Christ are even greater and eternal. Live a life that honors Him.

    FREEDOM ISN’T FREE

                This is Memorial Day weekend, a time when we remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we may live a life of freedom. We’ll enjoy a three-day weekend, get together with family and friends, cook outdoors, have a special time of remembrance at Church on Sunday morning, and be grateful for the freedoms we enjoy.

                But I want to ask you to consider going deeper, doing more.

                Those who gave their lives also gave up decades of living. They lost those opportunities to see their grandkids grow up, or build a business, or pursue a higher education or a life’s calling. They lost opportunities for serving the Lord and His Church, for lifelong personal development and friendships, serving in public office, learning new technologies, cheering for their favorite teams, and enjoying hobbies.

                They gave everything when they gave their lives.

                I’ve heard more than one “successful” veteran say that what makes them so driven in life is the obligation they feel to live in honor of those who didn’t make it back. They want to “double down” on life on behalf of their brothers-in-arms who will never have the chance.

                So this Memorial Day, make a commitment. Do more than gratefully enjoy the freedoms bought for us with lives lost. Determine that their sacrifice was not in vain. Decide you will live a better, grander, higher life of service to God and your fellowman, that you will do it on their behalf as well as your own. Decide to live and build a life for those who gave up their own.  

                After all, the best way to memorialize and honor them is not only to enjoy our freedoms, but to pursue the opportunities those freedoms provide.

     

                Of course as Christians we hold the same view toward our great Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As the saying goes, “He died for us; let us live for Him.”

    And you shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.' This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." (Mark 12:30-31 NKJV))
