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
Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.

Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.

Romans 4:1 – 4:25

  1 What shall we say then that Abraham our father, as pertaining to the flesh, hath found?
  2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath [whereof] to glory; but not before God.
  3 For what saith the scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness.
  4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt.
  5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
  6 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,
  7 [Saying], Blessed [are] they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.
  8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.
  9 Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision [only], or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.
  10 How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.
  11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which [he had yet] being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:
  12 And the father of circumcision to them who are not of the circumcision only, but who also walk in the steps of that faith of our father Abraham, which [he had] being [yet] uncircumcised.
  13 For the promise, that he should be the heir of the world, [was] not to Abraham, or to his seed, through the law, but through the righteousness of faith.
  14 For if they which are of the law [be] heirs, faith is made void, and the promise made of none effect:
  15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, [there is] no transgression.
  16 Therefore [it is] of faith, that [it might be] by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law, but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham; who is the father of us all,
  17 ( As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, [even] God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
  18 Who against hope believed in hope, that he might become the father of many nations; according to that which was spoken, So shall thy seed be.
  19 And being not weak in faith, he considered not his own body now dead, when he was about an hundred years old, neither yet the deadness of Sara’s womb:
  20 He staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God;
  21 And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
  22 And therefore it was imputed to him for righteousness.
  23 Now it was not written for his sake alone, that it was imputed to him;
  24 But for us also, to whom it shall be imputed, if we believe on him that raised up Jesus our Lord from the dead;
  25 Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.

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.
