We are located across from Bellevue Baptist Church at Appling Road and I-240.

In 2017 and 2018, under the direction of Dr. James D. Whitmire, Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary and Crossroads Baptist Church joined together to present The Scarlet Thread. The well-loved Easter program gained popularity, and thanks to generous volunteers and donors, over 120 professions of faith have been made to date. The impact is eternal.



With a cast, choir, orchestra, and crew of over 500,
more than 5,000 attend each year.


The 2019 production, entitled Lord, I Believe, has a new theme and script. One of the disciples, Thomas, doubts that the other disciples have seen Jesus in the flesh and will not believe in the resurrection of Jesus, until he sees the nail prints in Jesus’ hands and puts his hand in Jesus’ side, where the spear pierced.


This year, we invite you to experience

Jesus’ confrontation of Thomas’s disbelief.


Dr. James D. Whitmire, for nearly four decades, produced and directed the Memphis Passion Play, Jacksonville (Florida) Passion Play, and Uruguay Passion Play. This year's large-stage, musical production, Lord, I Believe, will once again take advantage of Mid-America’s terrific venue and its professional catwalk and lighting.



“The Passion Play is one of the best ways to present the gospel of the death, burial, resurrection of Jesus because it shows, in picture form, what we’ve read in the Bible or studied in church. I’ve seen over the years how many people have been brought to Christ and lives changed because of attending the Passion Play.”



Dr. James D. Whitmire
Worship Arts Instructor for Mid-America and
Minister of Music for Crossroads Baptist Church
