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
Blessed is the man that heareth me,
Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.

Proverbs 8:1 – 8:36

  1 Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?
  2 She standeth in the top of high places, by the way in the places of the paths.
  3 She crieth at the gates, at the entry of the city, at the coming in at the doors.
  4 Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice [is] to the sons of man.
  5 O ye simple, understand wisdom: and, ye fools, be ye of an understanding heart.
  6 Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips [shall be] right things.
  7 For my mouth shall speak truth; and wickedness [is] an abomination to my lips.
  8 All the words of my mouth [are] in righteousness; [there is] nothing froward or perverse in them.
  9 They [are] all plain to him that understandeth, and right to them that find knowledge.
  10 Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold.
  11 For wisdom [is] better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it.
  12 I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions.
  13 The fear of the Lord [is] to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
  14 Counsel [is] mine, and sound wisdom: I [am] understanding; I have strength.
  15 By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.
  16 By me princes rule, and nobles, [even] all the judges of the earth.
  17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
  18 Riches and honour [are] with me; [yea], durable riches and righteousness.
  19 My fruit [is] better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver.
  20 I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment:
  21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.
  22 The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.
  23 I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was.
  24 When [there were] no depths, I was brought forth; when [there were] no fountains abounding with water.
  25 Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth:
  26 While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world.
  27 When he prepared the heavens, I [was] there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth:
  28 When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep:
  29 When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth:
  30 Then I was by him, [as] one brought up [with him]: and I was daily [his] delight, rejoicing always before him;
  31 Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights [were] with the sons of men.
  32 Now therefore hearken unto me, O ye children: for blessed [are they that] keep my ways.
  33 Hear instruction, and be wise, and refuse it not.
  34 Blessed is the man that heareth me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors.
  35 For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the Lord.
  36 But he that sinneth against me wrongeth his own soul: all they that hate me love death.

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.
