Essentials 201: Discovering Discipleship


Discovering Discipleship is part of our Essentials series.

The Essentials are four basic seminars that kick-start a Christian's growth as a follower of Jesus and helps believers find their way into Church membership and joyful service.  

The four seminars are:

Essentials 101: Discovering FBC Membership - completing this seminar is the way people join First Baptist Church and learn the vital things God expects of them.

Essentials 201: Discovering Discipleship - this seminar helps believers learn the four powerful disciplines (habits) of a growing disciple of Jesus.

Essentials 301: Discovering My Ministry - this seminar is critical in helping each believer learn his/her unique spiritual S.H.A.P.E.  God is "shaping" each of us into the person He intends to use for His glory.  When we learn our S.H.A.P.E. we will also learn the source of our joy and contentment.

Essentials 401: Discovering My Mission in Life - this seminar provides the tools for  believers to be able to effectively share their faith with others. 

Essentials 201 is currently being taught during our "Digging Deeper" study following lunch on Sundays.


Look What's Happening on Sundays


Our Sunday schedule continues after morning worship as we meet for lunch in our Fellowship Hall in the Family Life Center @ 11:45ish.  Then at 12:15ish, our Senior Pastor, Dr. Ron Wilcoxson, teaches a study we call "DIGGING DEEPER."   Currently he is teaching a 3 week study called: "Essentials 201: Discovering Discipleship."  Dr. Ron will cover the four necessary ingredients to be a growing disciple of Jesus Christ.  This study is based on Dr. Rick Warren's "The Purpose Driven Church" model and is a prerequisite to the following study: "Essentials 301: Discovering My Ministry." Join us as we are "Digging Deeper" into the scriptures on Sundays after lunch.

The Bible Doesn't Say That is a new teaching series that explores 6 sayings often attributed to the Bible.  You will gain great insight into God's Word through this series.

Meet our Senior Pastor


Dr. Ron Wilcoxson is our Senior Pastor.  He brings a new vision to our church in Blytheville, leading us to provide Spirit-filled worship, family oriented Bible study in Blytheville and beyond, and creating ministries for each member of the family.  He has served as the lead Pastor in churches as large as 2100 members and 1600 in average attendance.  His churches have typically been fast growing with lots of people making professions of faith in Christ.  He has been a pioneer in leading multiple services per Sunday, with multiple styles, although for the last 15 years, his churches have been primarily contemporary worship churches.  Dr. Ron has been married to Angela for 44 years.  They have four grown kids, with 2 that serve vocationally as worship leaders. Dr. Ron is committed to a healthy and strong children's & youth ministry, which includes outstanding daycare.  He also loves worshiping, teaching and leading others to Jesus.  And, he's pretty good at golf, too.
