I am a person who believes that each individual is master of his or her own destiny. Experience and environment may influence who we are, but they cannot determine who we become. Through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, that power is ours, and ours alone (Philippians 4:13). I apply this truth to my life, and "Newness with Nesmith" is a means by which I share it with others. Interested in finding the secret to "the good life?" Contact me, and we will successfully enjoy that quest, together!

    "Dr. Nesmith is a phenomenal made with many talents. He is a leader, counselor, mentor, friend and inspirational man of God. As a mentor, he makes you feel as if he has sat where you are sitting and ready to walk with you every step of the way on your Christian journey. His sermons do not only light a fire in the ones already in the walk, but those who are yearning to be feed, recharged and connected. Under his leadership, I have grown and continue striving everyday to be a better man in Christ which will directly flow into me becoming a better man personally. Though there will always be trials and tribulations, my faith, confidence and reaction to these situations have manifested through the guidance of Dr. Nesmith. As long as I put God first, everything else will follow for he has the power to change even the things we may feel are unchangeable. I am optimistic about the next chapters of my life and welcome the trials because through my perseverance and faith in Christ, I know who I am and what my father has made available for me. Dr. Nesmith, thank you for being such a monumental changing force in my life.

    "Brother Nesmith is a scholar of the Bible which really means that when he gives you an answer, it is not just proven by one passage in the Bible but a range of passages so that you can get the "big picture" and he speaks from the Bible and not from his opinion. He also gives you history behind the topic that you ask of him. I can share that I was on the verge of ending my life but through his encouragement, bible study, and personal perservance with taking the time to work with me, I am at a state that I know my worthiness in God! I would like to add that not only does he answer your questions according to the Bible, he takes the time to make sure you understand and if that requires some of his "personal" time to get it accomplished, he is more than willing!"

    "James is a man I truly believe is inspired by God It is a rare thing to experience and witness someone who is exceptional in their particular endeavor . Much as an athlete trains to win the gold in an Olympic event, James trains to not only win the gold for Christ himself but he strives to help others win the gold for Christ, He is a man of great passion for the Lord and the has ability to communicate that in practical applicable ways so that the listener understands and effectuate those principles in their own lives. I am a living testimony of james' ability to inspire people to greater works in The Lord."

    "James is a very caring and understanding individual. The dynamic of scripture and the gospel according to Jesus Christ, is displayed in his actions. He genuinely cares for people. I was going through depression after losing my job and having to raise my children alone. Choosing to follow Jesus left me seperated from the ties I created in the world and on a new christian path. James let me know I wasn't alone and that church family would always be there. He would text me on days when I didn't attend church and would ask if there was anything he could help me with. His unselfish acts pushed me to get past depression and back into trusting God. This started me on a new journey. Thank you James for always making me feel welcome without judgement. God bless you!"

    "Dr. Nesmith led a marriage retreat my wife and I recently attended, and we have nothing but praise. The topic was timely, and he presented the material in a way that everyone could understand "Melodies of Us: Couples in Concert 2011." We felt that he did a superb job organizing and selecting a thought-provoking topic. Congratulations on both a successful and a memorable retreat, and thanks again for making this a very valuable experience.

    "Dr. Nesmith provided me with a more distinct understanding of the scriptures, as I am faced with new health challenges. There are many times when people, and fellow Christians alike, will tell you to pray like you believe, there’s nothing God can’t do, and their favorite; if He brings you to it, He’ll bring you through it. This may all be true, but I needed a deeper understanding of what I was experiencing as a Christian. Dr. Nesmith was able to share with me through scripture what I needed most, and that was proper application of the word, as it pertained to me in my situation.
    I feel truly blessed to have access to him through this service, and as I continue to utilize it, I am confident it will enhance my daily living and spiritual growth.

    "Dr. James Nesmith is an amazing teacher and counselor. I have had the pleasure of receiving biblical lessons, and counseling services from him for approximately seven years. Inspired by God, Dr. Nesmith brings bible principles alive with clarity using word pictures, visuals and real life applications. He is caring and genuine in his biblical advice towards any situation. My family and I have been through some trying times, and knowing the power of God through His word, we have overcome. Romans 10:14, 15 acknowledges the importance of those who like Dr. Nesmith bring the good news to all. We are truly blessed when we learn, and apply God's word to our lives. Thank you Dr. Nesmith for your clear teaching of God's word."

  • KL B. June 29, 2011

    "Dr. Nesmith has a powerful and unique gift: he shares Christ’s message in such a way that a person—no matter what his/her social or economic status may be—can clearly and fully understand it and apply it to life. His in-depth and extensive knowledge of The Bible and its historical context and significance have helped me to make sense of and learn from both the failures and successes in my life . . . in my Christian journey. "

  • Lenise R. June 28, 2011

    "Many preach, but very few teach. Brother Nesmith is scholar of God's word who can, without hesitation, not just answer your questions from a biblical perspective, but also provide the historical backdrop for life during biblical times.
    I can truly say that since I've been a part of the West Broad COC family I have grown both spiritually and personally. My confidence as a Christian has increased which makes it easier and more comfortable for me to share my faith and encourage others.
    Brother Nesmith gets down to the real STUFF that Christians tend not to acknowledge, as if following Christ makes it all go away. Through this, I've learned not just to put God 1st in everything (as His word instructs us), but exactly what that looks like, day-to-day. "

  • Susan C. June 26, 2011

    "I began to understand and live my life according to God's word through the teachings of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ when I became a member of the West Broad Church of Christ. Our brother James Nesmith has been instrumental in helping me to realize my life's potential by putting Christ first and learning to live through Him, for Him and not myself. I have grown so much. I also see this service as a way to share, discuss, clarify, and be encouraged through so many challenges, struggles, or just times to reflect, when we find ourselves asking those questions regarding our life's experiences. At least this is what this will do for me. I am happy to have yet another opportunity to further understand the word according to Jesus Christ.
    Thank you for this opportunity!
    In Christ,
    Susan "
