Books by Keith Davis
Keith Davis, a former police sergeant, left a twelve-year career in law enforcement in 1993 to pursue God's calling to become a church pastor. Today, he leads Zion Hill Baptist Church in Spartanburg, South Carolina, where he has served since August of 2000. He is a graduate of Fruitland Bible Collge and is former chairman of the Executive Board of the South Carolina Baptist Convention.
Churches are not perfect, but they are one of God’s institutions. Christ died for the church, and He is the Head of the church. It is a privilege to serve Him in and through His church.
There are a few things you will not find in this book: attacks on larger churches; an exhaustive discussion on church; excuses for not reaching out to the unchurched; excuses for not doing God’s work.
There are some things I pray you will find in this book: encouragement for the smaller church; focus on biblical instructions for all churches; focus on the God of the church; practical examples of accomplishing God’s work.
One of the greatest sins in the church today is unbelief. As long as this sin prevails in local assemblies, the Church will not be made up of Spirit-filled followers of God. Author and pastor Keith Davis asserts that if Christ's followers honestly seek to be what the Bible says they should be, they will have to confront their own sin of unbelief. In so doing, he says, it will revolutionize their lives - and their churches!
Books by Ashley Jones
Ashley Jones currently serves as the youth director at Zion Hill Baptist in Spartanburg, S.C. She is a singer/songwriter, musician, artist, author, researcher, and teacher who is passionate to see today's youth equipped and impacted by God's Word. She has been invited as a special guest to North Greenville University and has appeared on Truth for a New Generation TV. Her focus is in apologetics and ancient history.
A Glimpse at HisStory is an in-depth look at Genesis 1-12. You will find facts and evidence from ancient history that point to the truth of God's Word. This study was originally written for a weekend youth retreat but after many requests for the material from adults, as well as college students, it was made into a book. Charts, maps, photos, and diagrams, along with interactive questions, make this 141-page book interesting and fact-filled.
Jesus, just the mention of His name demands a reaction. Throughout history. He is defined as the founder of Christianity. Some say that He is God in the flesh, others claim that He was a good man, there are those that say He never existed at all, and yet there are those who call Him, Lord. He is considered to be the most controversial person on Earth. New Testament scholars agree that Jesus certainly existed, but what sets this one Man apart from every other on earth? We will take on the task of investigating Jesus both biblically and historically. Did the events written in the New Testament happen? Is there any proof that He existed?
Egypt is known as the land of mystery and antiquity. She is portrayed in God’s Word as a land of refuge, tyrannical slavery, and judgment. Of all of the glory given to gold gilded Pharaoh’s and the engineering marvel of the pyramids, God would choose this land to show His wonders.
The Egypt of antiquity was a place of technology, mathematics, and military might. She was wealthy, beautiful, and had a vast trade network. In all of her splendor, she was home to the worship of over two-thousand False gods. Treasure hunters have sifted through her sands for thousands of years, and yet the real treasure of Egypt is found within God’s Word.
The book of Exodus prefigures Jesus the Messiah as the coming Sacrificial Lamb. It also illustrates the framework that Christians can follow throughout our walk with the one true God. As we examine scripture, we will attempt to uncover these priceless treasures found within God's word by sifting through the historical sands of time to examine evidence and biblical facts left behind from the confrontation between our Creator and Culture.
This is a colorful expository look at the book of Daniel with pictures, maps, and charts. Studying through the book of Daniel is a challenge, yet so fulfilling. As Christians, how can we not be inspired by a man of profound faith like Daniel? Through all twelve chapters, we will discover history, application, archaeological finds, inspiration, and prophecies fulfilled and unfulfilled. Let me be clear! The bible does not rest upon discovered, undiscovered, incomplete, imperfect, or uninspired worldly documents, but it is clear to see how accurate history played out when reading through the book of Daniel. If God's Word is accurate in the fulfilled prophecies, we should know that the future will be just as God inspired Daniel to write.
