The Reformed Baptist Blog seeks to maintain a pastoral focus, with a balance of teaching the Church as well as warning the Church to beware of both potential and actual errors. The blog also seeks to inform our brothers and sisters in the body of Christ — especially within the Reformed Baptist community — about matters of interest to them. And, of course, it is hoped that unbelieving visitors will be able to discover a clear presentation of the Gospel so that they may come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We will never seek to be controversial simply for the sake of controversy. Too many blogs have adopted the alternative approach in an apparent attempt to get more readers, but we will wade into the waters of controversy only when we feel it necessary and truly helpful to the body of Christ. Here are the men who make up the Reformed Baptist Blog team:

Jason Alligood is the teaching pastor of Fellowship Bible Church in Peoria, IL where he has served since 2012. Previously, Jason served as an Associate Pastor and Youth Pastor beginning full-time ministry in 1997. He holds B.A. in Bible and Youth Ministry from the historic Moody Bible Institute, an M.S. (M.A. equivalent) in Bible and Theology from Calvary Theological Seminary (Kansas City), and is nearing the dissertation phase of a Ph.D. in Systematic Theology from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, under the supervision of Dr. Owen Strachan, and will also concurrently receive a Th.M. in Pedagogy.

Jeffrey D. Johnson

Keith Throop is the primary teaching pastor of Immanuel Baptist Church in Bloomington, Illinois, where he has served since 1994. He received his B.A. in Biblical Studies from Columbia Bible College (now Columbia International University) in Columbia, South Carolina, and he received his M.Div. from Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. And, by the way, his last name has a silent ‘h’ and is pronounced ‘troop.’
