We are so pleased to have you stop by our website. You must have a passionate interest in the steel guitar, as we do. We realize, though, that the things of this world will eventually fade away. We would like to introduce you to the One Who can give you eternal life and eternal happiness.

  1. "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also". Matthew 6:19-21.

  2. "The world and its desires pass away, but the (one) who does the will of God lives forever." 1 John 2:17. "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life." John 3:16.

  3. "That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9. "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."** Romans 10:13.

  4. ..Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him." 1 Corinthians 2:9.

**If you have just received Jesus Christ, we encourage you to grow with Him by reading the Bible and going to a church that preaches from the Bible and believes it to be the inspired Word of God. If you have any questions about this matter, we would feel privileged to help you in any way we can.


Sincerely in Christ,
Billy & Wanda Cooper


Is the high cost of health care making you sick? Please consider this biblical approach to health care for God’s people.

We have been members of the Samaritan Ministries for many years now and can testify to the many blessings we have received when medical needs arose.

Instead of depending on insurance companies or the government, you depend on Jesus Christ and on His Body---the Church. They share in each other’s medical needs directly!

How to Know Christ

Vernon McGee Website


The gospel message is simple: "That Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures; and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15:3, 4).


Years ago, our absolute favorite Bible teacher Dr. J. Vernon McGee prepared a simple tract giving you The Inside Story on salvation. If you have not already accepted God's gift of eternal life, we hope you will read the following words, asking God to open the eyes of your understanding, and that you will place your faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.


Dr. McGee devoted over 50 years to studying and teaching the Word of God so that others might see how wonderful Jesus is. May that be your experience today.

Would you really like to know how to get to heaven?


Years ago, railroads and airlines printed time tables. They all laid claim to the better route to your destination. They went so far as to print their line in big boxcar type, while their competitor's line was put in the smallest type.


The different denominations and churches all have their peculiar route to heaven. The various sects and isms claim to have a monopoly on the only way to a blessed eternity. Which way shall we go? Certainly all of us want to go to heaven. Most assuredly we want to take the proper route. Which is it?


Instead of listening to this babel of voices all about us, why not listen to God? Here is what He says in the Bible. This is the inside story on God's way to heaven. It is the gospel according to the Author:


God tells the truth about mankind:


    "As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one." (Romans 3:10)


    "For there is not a just man upon earth, that does good, and does not sin." (Ecclesiastes 7:20)


    "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)


    "…For there is no man that sins not…." (1 Kings 8:46)


    "All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him [Jesus] the iniquity of us all." (Isaiah 53:6)


God says that He must punish sin:


    "Behold, all souls are Mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is Mine: the soul that sins, it shall die." (Ezekiel 18:4)


    "For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23)


God tells the inside story about His remedy for sin:


    "Come now, and let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool." (Isaiah 1:18)


    "God commends [demonstrates] His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)


    "Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes you were healed." (l Peter 2:24)


    "He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed." (Isaiah 53:5)


    "Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Spirit." (Titus 3:5)


    "For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast." (Ephesians 2:8, 9)


God wants to save you and will save you if you will follow His instructions:


    "He who believes on the Son has everlasting life: and he who believes not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abides on him." (John 3:36)


    "And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you shall be saved, and your household." (Acts 16:31)


    "To Him give all the prophets witness, that through His name whoever believes in Him shall receive remission of sins." (Acts 10:43)


    "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)


    "And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book: but these are written, that you might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you might have life through His name." (John 20:30, 31)


God definitely declares that there is only one way to be saved:


    "Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by Me." (John 14:6)


    "Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is no other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." (Acts 4:12)


    "Jesus said, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believes in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?" (John 11:25, 26)


    "For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." (l Timothy 2:5)


Christ extends to you a personal invitation:


    "All that the Father gives Me shall come to Me; and he that comes to Me I will in no wise cast out." (John 6:37)


Now it is up to you. You have the inside story. What are you going to do about it?
