Truth for Today began in 2011 with the mission of taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the World by means of Television. We believe that the most effective way of sharing the gospel is by preaching, teaching, and explaining God's Word to the hearer. Man's words can only do what man can do but God's Word does what only God can do. Truth for Today is committed to providing a television broadcast that each week expounds God's Word in a verse-by-verse chapter-by-chapter format. Truth for Today is a ministry of the Beulah Baptist Church in Bennett, NC and Dr. Neal Jackson.
Dr. Neal Jackson, is the pastor of the Beulah Baptist Church, in Bennett, North Carolina the church where he was born when his father, Nolan Jackson Sr., was serving the church as Minister of Music in the 1970's.
Dr. Jackson is the third generation of preachers to be driven by the mandate of taking the gospel to the world. His grandfather, Maze Jackson, traveled the country in evangelism for over forty years and was heard across the country through his radio broadcast, The Truck Drivers Special.
Dr. Jackson has pastored churches in Pensacola, FL and Atlanta, GA. He began his broadcast ministry with the Rejoice in the Lord telecast while pastoring in Florida. His preaching is characterized as verse-by-verse exposition, and his passion has always been that of encouraging people to love God’s Word. God has given him the ability to answer the modern day problems people face with the truths of scripture.
Dr. Jackson recently received his second doctorate this one with a concentration in expository preaching from The Masters Seminary. He and Tracy have three children, David, Victoria and Reagan
Beulah Baptist Church, founded in 1902 with thirty-one charter members, began with the mission of reaching their community and world for Jesus Christ. The Church's commitment to that mission has not wavered, it has only grown and multiplied over the years. Today more than ever Beulah Baptist is striving with all of her power to take the gospel to every home in its area and then do her part in taking the good news to the state of North Carolina, the nation and the world.
The church has had twelve pastors since its founding in 1902. Dr. Neal Jackson was called to pastor the church in 2009 a product of the church having been born while his father, Nolan Jackson Sr., was serving on staff with Dr. Curtis Barbery who pastored the church for forty years and retired in 2003.
The secret of Beulah Baptist Church is the abundant grace that God has displayed upon the church!! In gratefulness of His many blessings, Beulah desires to live out the gospel with all of her power until Christ returns to rule and reign.
Isaiah 62:4 (KJV) Thou shalt no more be termed Forsaken; neither shall thy land any more be termed Desolate: but thou shalt be called Hephzibah (Canaan Land), and thy land Beulah: for the LORD delighteth in thee, and thy land shall be married.
