Understanding Fasting (Download PDF)
In the Fall of 2002, Dr. Ballard sensed the Lord leading him to call Christian Fellowship Baptist Church to 40 days of intense focus on the Lord. As he continued to seek the Lord as to the nature of the 40 Days, several elements developed into a cohesive unit which he called “40 Days of Focus.” Early in the development process Dr. Ballard sensed that the spiritual exercise of fasting needed to play a major role in the time of focus. Realizing that fasting is a little practiced and much misunderstood spiritual exercise; it was decided to turn the material into a booklet form that could be distributed.
Understanding Grace Giving (Download PDF)
Over a two-year period of time Dr. Ballard led Christian Fellowship Baptist Church on a journey through the Bible. Each week the Sunday Morning, Sunday Night and Wednesday night services were dedicated to a single book of Scripture. As the Church came to 2 Corinthians Dr. Ballard sensed the Lord leading him to spend three weeks on this book. During that three-week period of time he preached 3 sermons on the subject of Grace Giving. These three sermons served as background preparation for the development of this booklet.
Understanding Temptation (Download PDF)
During the month of July 2006 Dr. Ballard led the congregation of Christian Fellowship Baptist Church through a four-week study on temptation. The contents of this booklet are based upon the material presented during that study. Our prayer is that the Lord will use this material in your life to enable you to better deal with temptation.
Why Do We Give? (Download PDF)
Dr. Ballard takes a hard look at gift giving, considering the traditions of our country and the world, while trying to understand if there is any biblical basis for it. The result of his study changed his attitude and approach to giving, not only at Christmas when we traditionally give many gifts, but all year long. Prayerfully, your approach to giving will be forever changed as well.
