Online Christian Resources

The internet has many useful Christian resources! Let's glorify God in how we use the internet, "bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ." (II Corinthians 10:5).

BIBLE STUDY RESOURCES: and both offer searchable bibles in many English translations and foreign languages, as well as helpful concordances and commentaries.

THEOLOGICAL AND CHRISTIAN LIVING RESOURCES: is a basic presentation of the Christian gospel. and both provide contemporary commentary, articles, and sermons written or linked to by Al Mohler (president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary) and Randy Alcorn (director of Eternal Perspective Ministries), respectively. and include all the sermons and writings of Charles Spurgeon and John Bunyan, two famous historical Baptist preachers. - Christian answers to practical life questions about relationships, career, etc. is the Baptist Faith and Message, Peninsula Baptist's statement of faith - also available on the Peninsula Baptist website:

MISSIONS AND INTERNATIONAL RESOURCES: is the Voice of the Martyrs website. It has a lot of prayer topics about our persecuted brothers and sisters around the world. and have info about international and North American Southern Baptist missions. is the website of Jews for Jesus, an organization that spreads the gospel primarily to the Jewish people.

Note that this is by no means an exhaustive list (and that Peninsula Baptist does not necessarily endorse every piece of content available through these websites…).
