Behold, I stand at the door, and knock if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Jesus Christ. John 1:17

And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

Ephesians 4:1 – 4:32

  1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
  2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
  3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
  4 [There is] one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
  5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
  6 One God and Father of all, who [is] above all, and through all, and in you all.
  7 But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ.
  8 Wherefore he saith, When he ascended up on high, he led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men.
  9 ( Now that he ascended, what is it but that he also descended first into the lower parts of the earth?
  10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.)
  11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
  12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
  13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
  14 That we [henceforth] be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, [and] cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
  15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, [even] Christ:
  16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.
  17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,
  18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
  19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.
  20 But ye have not so learned Christ;
  21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:
  22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
  23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
  24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
  25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.
  26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
  27 Neither give place to the devil.
  28 Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with [his] hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.
  29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.
  30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.
  31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:
  32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

STATEMENT OF FAITH
We Believe…

In one God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;

In the absolute deity and full humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, God the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death for all through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal return in power and glory to judge the living and the dead;

In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is empowered to live a holy life, to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ;

In the divine inspiration of all 66 books of the Old and New Testaments as originally given, guaranteeing their infallibility, entire trustworthiness, and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;

That all people are sinners and cannot save themselves. Salvation is received as a free gift of God’s grace, apart from works, through repentance and personal faith in the redemptive work of Christ and the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit;

In the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the eternal blessedness of the saved, and the eternal punishment of the lost;

In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ who are thus members of His Body, the Church, whose work is the worship of God, perfecting the saints, and evangelization of the world.
