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
pray, love, knowledge, judgment
And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and [in] all judgment

And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and [in] all judgment

Philippians 1:1 – 1:30

  1 Paul and Timotheus, the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi, with the bishops and deacons:
  2 Grace [be] unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and [from] the Lord Jesus Christ.
  3 I thank my God upon every remembrance of you,
  4 Always in every prayer of mine for you all making request with joy,
  5 For your fellowship in the gospel from the first day until now;
  6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform [it] until the day of Jesus Christ:
  7 Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace.
  8 For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ.
  9 And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and [in] all judgment;
  10 That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ;
  11 Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.
  12 But I would ye should understand, brethren, that the things [which happened] unto me have fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel;
  13 So that my bonds in Christ are manifest in all the palace, and in all other [places];
  14 And many of the brethren in the Lord, waxing confident by my bonds, are much more bold to speak the word without fear.
  15 Some indeed preach Christ even of envy and strife; and some also of good will:
  16 The one preach Christ of contention, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my bonds:
  17 But the other of love, knowing that I am set for the defence of the gospel.
  18 What then? notwithstanding, every way, whether in pretence, or in truth, Christ is preached; and I therein do rejoice, yea, and will rejoice.
  19 For I know that this shall turn to my salvation through your prayer, and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ,
  20 According to my earnest expectation and [my] hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but [that] with all boldness, as always, [so] now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether [it be] by life, or by death.
  21 For to me to live [is] Christ, and to die [is] gain.
  22 But if I live in the flesh, this [is] the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not.
  23 For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:
  24 Nevertheless to abide in the flesh [is] more needful for you.
  25 And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all for your furtherance and joy of faith;
  26 That your rejoicing may be more abundant in Jesus Christ for me by my coming to you again.
  27 Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel;
  28 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.
  29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;
  30 Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear [to be] in me.

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.
