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
Better [is] an handful [with] quietness, than both the hands full [with] travail and vexation of spirit.
Better is an handful with quietness

Better is an handful with quietness, than both the hands full with travail and vexation of spirit.

Ecclesiastes 4:1 – 4:16

  1 So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of [such as were] oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors [there was] power; but they had no comforter.
  2 Wherefore I praised the dead which are already dead more than the living which are yet alive.
  3 Yea, better [is he] than both they, which hath not yet been, who hath not seen the evil work that is done under the sun.
  4 Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his neighbour. This [is] also vanity and vexation of spirit.
  5 The fool foldeth his hands together, and eateth his own flesh.
  6 Better [is] an handful [with] quietness, than both the hands full [with] travail and vexation of spirit.
  7 Then I returned, and I saw vanity under the sun.
  8 There is one [alone], and [there is] not a second; yea, he hath neither child nor brother: yet [is there] no end of all his labour; neither is his eye satisfied with riches; neither [saith he], For whom do I labour, and bereave my soul of good? This [is] also vanity, yea, it [is] a sore travail.
  9 Two [are] better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
  10 For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him [that is] alone when he falleth; for [he hath] not another to help him up.
  11 Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm [alone]?
  12 And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
  13 Better [is] a poor and a wise child than an old and foolish king, who will no more be admonished.
  14 For out of prison he cometh to reign; whereas also [he that is] born in his kingdom becometh poor.
  15 I considered all the living which walk under the sun, with the second child that shall stand up in his stead.
  16 [There is] no end of all the people, [even] of all that have been before them: they also that come after shall not rejoice in him. Surely this also [is] vanity and vexation of spirit.

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.
