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 whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it
And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.

1 Corinthians 12:1 – 12:31

  1 Now concerning spiritual [gifts], brethren, I would not have you ignorant.
  2 Ye know that ye were Gentiles, carried away unto these dumb idols, even as ye were led.
  3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and [that] no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
  4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
  5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
  6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
  7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
  8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
  9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit;
  10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another [divers] kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues:
  11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
  12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also [is] Christ.
  13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether [we be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be] bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
  14 For the body is not one member, but many.
  15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
  16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
  17 If the whole body [were] an eye, where [were] the hearing? If the whole [were] hearing, where [were] the smelling?
  18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
  19 And if they were all one member, where [were] the body?
  20 But now [are they] many members, yet but one body.
  21 And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
  22 Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary:
  23 And those [members] of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely [parts] have more abundant comeliness.
  24 For our comely [parts] have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that [part] which lacked:
  25 That there should be no schism in the body; but [that] the members should have the same care one for another.
  26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
  27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.
  28 And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
  29 [Are] all apostles? [are] all prophets? [are] all teachers? [are] all workers of miracles?
  30 Have all the gifts of healing? do all speak with tongues? do all interpret?
  31 But covet earnestly the best gifts: and yet shew I unto you a more excellent way.

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.
