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 Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Cæsar the things that are Cæsar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.

Mark 12:1 – 12:44

  1 And he began to speak unto them by parables. A [certain] man planted a vineyard, and set an hedge about [it], and digged [a place for] the winefat, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country.
  2 And at the season he sent to the husbandmen a servant, that he might receive from the husbandmen of the fruit of the vineyard.
  3 And they caught [him], and beat him, and sent [him] away empty.
  4 And again he sent unto them another servant; and at him they cast stones, and wounded [him] in the head, and sent [him] away shamefully handled.
  5 And again he sent another; and him they killed, and many others; beating some, and killing some.
  6 Having yet therefore one son, his wellbeloved, he sent him also last unto them, saying, They will reverence my son.
  7 But those husbandmen said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance shall be ours.
  8 And they took him, and killed [him], and cast [him] out of the vineyard.
  9 What shall therefore the lord of the vineyard do? he will come and destroy the husbandmen, and will give the vineyard unto others.
  10 And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner:
  11 This was the Lord’s doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?
  12 And they sought to lay hold on him, but feared the people: for they knew that he had spoken the parable against them: and they left him, and went their way.
  13 And they send unto him certain of the Pharisees and of the Herodians, to catch him in [his] words.
  14 And when they were come, they say unto him, Master, we know that thou art true, and carest for no man: for thou regardest not the person of men, but teachest the way of God in truth: Is it lawful to give tribute to Cæsar, or not?
  15 Shall we give, or shall we not give? But he, knowing their hypocrisy, said unto them, Why tempt ye me? bring me a penny, that I may see [it].
  16 And they brought [it]. And he saith unto them, Whose [is] this image and superscription? And they said unto him, Cæsar’s.
  17 And Jesus answering said unto them, Render to Cæsar the things that are Cæsar’s, and to God the things that are God’s. And they marvelled at him.
  18 Then come unto him the Sadducees, which say there is no resurrection; and they asked him, saying,
  19 Master, Moses wrote unto us, If a man’s brother die, and leave [his] wife [behind him], and leave no children, that his brother should take his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
  20 Now there were seven brethren: and the first took a wife, and dying left no seed.
  21 And the second took her, and died, neither left he any seed: and the third likewise.
  22 And the seven had her, and left no seed: last of all the woman died also.
  23 In the resurrection therefore, when they shall rise, whose wife shall she be of them? for the seven had her to wife.
  24 And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?
  25 For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven.
  26 And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God spake unto him, saying, I [am] the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?
  27 He is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living: ye therefore do greatly err.
  28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
  29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments [is], Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
  30 And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this [is] the first commandment.
  31 And the second [is] like, [namely] this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
  32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:
  33 And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love [his] neighbour as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices.
  34 And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him [any question].
  35 And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David?
  36 For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The Lord said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool.
  37 David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he [then] his son? And the common people heard him gladly.
  38 And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and [love] salutations in the marketplaces,
  39 And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
  40 Which devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.
  41 And Jesus sat over against the treasury, and beheld how the people cast money into the treasury: and many that were rich cast in much.
  42 And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.
  43 And he called [unto him] his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury:
  44 For all [they] did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, [even] all her living.

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.
