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
As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest,
As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool.

As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool.

Proverbs 26:1 – 26:28

  1 As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so honour is not seemly for a fool.
  2 As the bird by wandering, as the swallow by flying, so the curse causeless shall not come.
  3 A whip for the horse, a bridle for the ass, and a rod for the fool’s back.
  4 Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him.
  5 Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.
  6 He that sendeth a message by the hand of a fool cutteth off the feet, [and] drinketh damage.
  7 The legs of the lame are not equal: so [is] a parable in the mouth of fools.
  8 As he that bindeth a stone in a sling, so [is] he that giveth honour to a fool.
  9 [As] a thorn goeth up into the hand of a drunkard, so [is] a parable in the mouth of fools.
  10 The great [God] that formed all [things] both rewardeth the fool, and rewardeth transgressors.
  11 As a dog returneth to his vomit, [so] a fool returneth to his folly.
  12 Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? [there is] more hope of a fool than of him.
  13 The slothful [man] saith, [There is] a lion in the way; a lion [is] in the streets.
  14 [As] the door turneth upon his hinges, so [doth] the slothful upon his bed.
  15 The slothful hideth his hand in [his] bosom; it grieveth him to bring it again to his mouth.
  16 The sluggard [is] wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason.
  17 He that passeth by, [and] meddleth with strife [belonging] not to him, [is like] one that taketh a dog by the ears.
  18 As a mad [man] who casteth firebrands, arrows, and death,
  19 So [is] the man [that] deceiveth his neighbour, and saith, Am not I in sport?
  20 Where no wood is, [there] the fire goeth out: so where [there is] no talebearer, the strife ceaseth.
  21 [As] coals [are] to burning coals, and wood to fire; so [is] a contentious man to kindle strife.
  22 The words of a talebearer [are] as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.
  23 Burning lips and a wicked heart [are like] a potsherd covered with silver dross.
  24 He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him;
  25 When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for [there are] seven abominations in his heart.
  26 [Whose] hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the [whole] congregation.
  27 Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.
  28 A lying tongue hateth [those that are] afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.

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.
