Bible Lessons


Learning your Bible is a big part of being a Christian

The Bible tells us in many ways that it is inportant to both read and study God's Holy Word (What the Bible is called.) 

Why? When you study your Bible it protects you from doing things that can hurt you and even kill you.  That's because God wrote it so that we humans would know how to live in ways that please him and that also keep us safe and protected from the Devil---God's enemy and the enemy of humans. In fact, even the devil knows that it is important to read your Bible.  Read the Book of Luke, chapter 4:, verses `1 through 13 and you will see that the Devil tried to use the Bible to fool Jesus into obeying him.  He misquoted the Bible in ways that he thought would tempt Jesus. But it did not work.  Jesus told him the correct Bible verses and told him no.  The Devil left him alone.  

If the Devil would even try to fool Jesus by misquoting the Bible then we know that he does the same  to us. He uses false preachers and false churches to mislead the people.  He will try that with you. But if you know your Bible it will not work.

Many children want to go to church. But we need churches to volunteer to take them


 We are receiving more and more requests from children to take them to church. Sometimes their parents can't take them because of lack of a vehicle at home. Other times, the children are the only ones who go to church in the home. Whatever the reason, they need help getting to church. Jesus said, "Allow the little children to come to me." Will you help these children get to him? Remember, no one can get to heaven unless they have accepted Jesus as Lord and savior. But how can they get to Jesus if they can't even get to a church? Please help. Talk to your pastor and Sunday School about helping us transport children to church.

 The Bible tells us that all of us are to honor our parents. Exodus 20:12 says, "Honor your father and mother so that you may have a long life in the land that the LORD your God is giving you​." But also respect all adults.




Hey kids win a prize!

 Memorize any verse on this page and repeat it to a team leader at a 22:6 bastketball camp session, and you'll win an extra snack or prize! You must know the chapter verse and all the words.



Today this is a very important quetion as gay marriage is a subject in the news. Many people believe people should marry whoever they want regardless. But what does the Bible say about  it? What is God's veiw point and what does he want Christians to do?  In 1 Corinthians 6:19-20, we're reminded that as Christians, our bodies are not our own. They were bought for a price by  Jesus dying on the cross for our sins. You see, when you become a Christian you give your body to Jesus and he gets to decide how you use it. That means that we as Christians must submit to God and Christ's view point instead of going with what is popular. In Leviticus 18:22 God said to men, "You are not to sleep with a man as with a woman; it is detesable." In the New Testament, Romans, chapter 1, we are told that homosexuality is a sin and in 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, we are also told that those who practice same sex relationships

or gay lifestyles and who do not repent can't get into heaven. That's why we warn gay people to turn from the sin of homosexuality. This is misunderstood by some and they criticize believers. The Bible tells us to remain strong and obey God despite what the world says. In Acts 5:29 we're told that when the world and God disagree, a Christian must obey God. It is a loving thing to tell a gay person that homosexuality is a sin and that like all sin they must repent and turn from it and stop doing it, in order to be saved and go to heaven. That is not bigotry. It's an act of love. We love all people gay and straight and we should pray for God to use us to witness his truth to them. Ask God to help you witness to those who are gay and to do so in love.

Bringing children to Christ and Christ to children.

"What does 22:6 mean?" That question is the one that comes up most often. It is based on Proverbs 22:6 which says: "Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it."

More children win prizes for learning Bible verses


Parent Erica and her children show the McDonald's gift cards the children won for learning Bible verses. So far more than 14 children have won prizes for learning Bible verses and their meaning. Praise God. Pray for more to learn and also to accept Jesus as savior and lord.

Six Kids Baptized

God is blessing the children of 22:6 in 2023.  He blessed us last year  too, just before Christmas. We got special gifts:  9 children confessed Jesus as savior and lord. Six of those were baptized at Friendship Baptist. What a Christmas gift! Here are other highlights. Praise God!


This dad and his son participate

in the 22:6 Home Bible Study ministry 

in which a 22:6 Bible coach studies 

the Bible with a parent and child 

in their home. The parent must be

present. Several participate in the 

lessons. This encourages family

Bible study in the home. Pray

that more homes will allow

22:6 to be used to bring

the Word of God into homes. 

There is an old saying,

"the family that prays 

together, stays together."

Donald and his brother JaMichael enjoy

their reward of a snack at McDonald's.

Their older sister encourages them.


Donald, JaMichael and Karmajay won Jackets for memorizing Bible verses. They are participants in 22:6 and attend Royal Ambassador's Boy's Club, a Christian Bible club. They meet Wednesdays at 6pm at Trinity Baptist. Praise God! Pray for their continued spiritual growth.


Children visited nursing homes (after Covid 19). They gave away "spiritual gifts" such as prayers and songs to; the residents. Several children asked to do it again. The patients loved interacting with the children. Seen here is Adult Volunteer Mary and several adult volunteers outside a nursing facility on Keyser in Nachitoches, Louisiana.


A second team of boys who learned Bible verses fill up at the drink station before getting their Happy Meals.

Updated testimonies 

We recite Bible verses in the van on the way to church. When children memorize one and can tell what the verse means, they win at McDonalds prize. One boy reminded the driver that he forgot to do verses. Before the verse project, children listened to music or played noisly. But the verses create harmony among them and the spirit in the van is just better. Praise God!

22:6 started a nursing home visitation program before Covid. This year, 2022, we continued visiting when Covid restrictions were lifted. After a visit, a volunteer asked kids if they would like to visit again once a month. One boy said, "I want to go next week! Other kids agreed. 

At church, one teenager who had been having  trouble making good choices and fitting in with his peers in a good way, went to church one Sunday. He then volunteered to assist in helping with the younger kids and so far is doing that. Sometimes giving a child responsibility can make a difference. Pray for him and other kids who are having trouble adjusting. Who isn't having some issue or another?

Texas Outreach:
22:6 reaches out with 
witnessing trip to Waskom, 

Sunset in the Woods


On  May 21, 2021 , a team leader took a

22 :6 mission trip to the woodsy East Texas town of Waskom.   Waskom is a small town of just over 2,000 residents, just over the Texas border.  Billboards promoting pro-life messages greet visitors. It's a place with a pro-Christ spirit. The trip was a success and the residents of the town received the outreach very well.  

The team leader prayed with people on the street and gave spiritual toys such as religious coloring books to children. Several people had prayer requests. Two men in an 18 wheeler were particularly grateful and expressed thanks that 22:6 was on the street witnessing. Praise God.

Pray for future witnessing trips to Texas and other states outside Louisiana.  Pray that we will reach more children, parents and adults with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Lesson 3A: How to witness in Spanish:

Why? Jesus wants us to spread the Gospel to everyone in the world so they can have an opportunity to be saved and go to heaven. Here are a few phrases in Spanish to use that will help you reach out to Hispanics:

Dios Te Bendiga  means "God bless you."

Dios (say day-os) means God

Te (say Tay) means you

Bendiga means blessings (say ben ding ga)

Jesus te ama means "Jesus loves you."

Jesus (say hay zoos) means Jesus

te (say tay) means you

Ama (say am ma) means love.

Lesson 1A Bible Facts:

There are four gospels in the New Testament. They are Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

The Bible has 66 Books. There are 39 Old Testament books and 27 New Testament Books.

The Bible is the best selling book of all time.  Not even Harry Potter books have sold more.

The Bible has two main parts. The Old Testament tells what happened before Jesus came to Earth.  It is about how God created the world and how sin entered the world. 

The second part is the New Testament. It tells of the birth of Jesus and what happened in his time on Earth. It also tells that God sent him to die for the sins of mankind. Whoever believes in Jesus and accepts him as their savior and lord, (decide to let him lead them) is saved (John 3:16, Romans 10:9-10).  The New Testament tells about how the world will end and how Christians will live forever with God in heaven, while nonbelievers will live in hell. Because we do not want to see anyone go to hell, we are told to tell them about Jesus (Read Matthew 28:19-20).

Lesson 2A: Memorize these verses and win a 

Verse 1: For God so loved the world, he gave his only begotten Son that whosever believes in him shall not perish but shall receive eternal life. --John 3:16

Meaning: This means that God loved the world so much, he wanted everyone to be able to go to heaven. So he made it so those who believe that Jesus is God's Son, and who admit they are sinners, then ask Jesus to forgive them will be saved. But they must ask Jesus to be their savior and lord.

Tell a team leader this verse when you see one. 

Verse #2: "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me. (Jesus speaking in John 14:6).


Meaning: Jesus is clearly saying that the only way a person can get to heaven is by believing in him and accepting him as their savior and lord.

Tell a team leader this verse when you see him or her.

Children tell what they have learned as result of being in 22:6 and going to church


  "In 22:6 I memorized John 3:16. It taught me about Jesus's purpose."

-Tony Arnold, former teen in 22:6, now 18 and attending Norhwestern State University, majoring in Communications.

"I learned that you don't have to be special to go to heaven. You only need to believe in Jesus." 

--Gabby,  while attending Christ

the King Lutheran

"I learned you should not act up in church. It's God's house."  --Kaniya, while attending 

Trinity Baptist


Lesson 4A:
Memorize this Prayer:

Praying is very important. It is a major way we talk to God. When we pray to God in Jesus' name, he hears us.  In fact, Jesus said that when we pray and believe, he will receive what we ask for (Mark 11:22-24). But of course we cannot ask for evil things. Here is the prayer  Jesus himself asked us to pray. We should pray it daily. Every morning when you get up is the best time because it affects your whole day.  It is known as the Lord's Prayer. It is found in the New Testament in Matthew Chapter 6, verses 9-13.

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your will be done. On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts. As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.

Tell this to team leader and get a prize.

Freedom Life Church tutors

children in Carter's Trailer Park
