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
But made his own people to go forth like sheep,
But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.

But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.

Psalms 78:1 – 78:72

  1 Maschil of Asaph. Give ear, O my people, [to] my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.
  2 I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:
  3 Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.
  4 We will not hide [them] from their children, shewing to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, and his strength, and his wonderful works that he hath done.
  5 For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers, that they should make them known to their children:
  6 That the generation to come might know [them], [even] the children [which] should be born; [who] should arise and declare [them] to their children:
  7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments:
  8 And might not be as their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation; a generation [that] set not their heart aright, and whose spirit was not stedfast with God.
  9 The children of Ephraim, [being] armed, [and] carrying bows, turned back in the day of battle.
  10 They kept not the covenant of God, and refused to walk in his law;
  11 And forgat his works, and his wonders that he had shewed them.
  12 Marvellous things did he in the sight of their fathers, in the land of Egypt, [in] the field of Zoan.
  13 He divided the sea, and caused them to pass through; and he made the waters to stand as an heap.
  14 In the daytime also he led them with a cloud, and all the night with a light of fire.
  15 He clave the rocks in the wilderness, and gave [them] drink as [out of] the great depths.
  16 He brought streams also out of the rock, and caused waters to run down like rivers.
  17 And they sinned yet more against him by provoking the most High in the wilderness.
  18 And they tempted God in their heart by asking meat for their lust.
  19 Yea, they spake against God; they said, Can God furnish a table in the wilderness?
  20 Behold, he smote the rock, that the waters gushed out, and the streams overflowed; can he give bread also? can he provide flesh for his people?
  21 Therefore the Lord heard [this], and was wroth: so a fire was kindled against Jacob, and anger also came up against Israel;
  22 Because they believed not in God, and trusted not in his salvation:
  23 Though he had commanded the clouds from above, and opened the doors of heaven,
  24 And had rained down manna upon them to eat, and had given them of the corn of heaven.
  25 Man did eat angels’ food: he sent them meat to the full.
  26 He caused an east wind to blow in the heaven: and by his power he brought in the south wind.
  27 He rained flesh also upon them as dust, and feathered fowls like as the sand of the sea:
  28 And he let [it] fall in the midst of their camp, round about their habitations.
  29 So they did eat, and were well filled: for he gave them their own desire;
  30 They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat [was] yet in their mouths,
  31 The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen [men] of Israel.
  32 For all this they sinned still, and believed not for his wondrous works.
  33 Therefore their days did he consume in vanity, and their years in trouble.
  34 When he slew them, then they sought him: and they returned and enquired early after God.
  35 And they remembered that God [was] their rock, and the high God their redeemer.
  36 Nevertheless they did flatter him with their mouth, and they lied unto him with their tongues.
  37 For their heart was not right with him, neither were they stedfast in his covenant.
  38 But he, [being] full of compassion, forgave [their] iniquity, and destroyed [them] not: yea, many a time turned he his anger away, and did not stir up all his wrath.
  39 For he remembered that they [were but] flesh; a wind that passeth away, and cometh not again.
  40 How oft did they provoke him in the wilderness, [and] grieve him in the desert!
  41 Yea, they turned back and tempted God, and limited the Holy One of Israel.
  42 They remembered not his hand, [nor] the day when he delivered them from the enemy.
  43 How he had wrought his signs in Egypt, and his wonders in the field of Zoan:
  44 And had turned their rivers into blood; and their floods, that they could not drink.
  45 He sent divers sorts of flies among them, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them.
  46 He gave also their increase unto the caterpiller, and their labour unto the locust.
  47 He destroyed their vines with hail, and their sycomore trees with frost.
  48 He gave up their cattle also to the hail, and their flocks to hot thunderbolts.
  49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels [among them].
  50 He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;
  51 And smote all the firstborn in Egypt; the chief of [their] strength in the tabernacles of Ham:
  52 But made his own people to go forth like sheep, and guided them in the wilderness like a flock.
  53 And he led them on safely, so that they feared not: but the sea overwhelmed their enemies.
  54 And he brought them to the border of his sanctuary, [even to] this mountain, [which] his right hand had purchased.
  55 He cast out the heathen also before them, and divided them an inheritance by line, and made the tribes of Israel to dwell in their tents.
  56 Yet they tempted and provoked the most high God, and kept not his testimonies:
  57 But turned back, and dealt unfaithfully like their fathers: they were turned aside like a deceitful bow.
  58 For they provoked him to anger with their high places, and moved him to jealousy with their graven images.
  59 When God heard [this], he was wroth, and greatly abhorred Israel:
  60 So that he forsook the tabernacle of Shiloh, the tent [which] he placed among men;
  61 And delivered his strength into captivity, and his glory into the enemy’s hand.
  62 He gave his people over also unto the sword; and was wroth with his inheritance.
  63 The fire consumed their young men; and their maidens were not given to marriage.
  64 Their priests fell by the sword; and their widows made no lamentation.
  65 Then the Lord awaked as one out of sleep, [and] like a mighty man that shouteth by reason of wine.
  66 And he smote his enemies in the hinder parts: he put them to a perpetual reproach.
  67 Moreover he refused the tabernacle of Joseph, and chose not the tribe of Ephraim:
  68 But chose the tribe of Judah, the mount Zion which he loved.
  69 And he built his sanctuary like high [palaces], like the earth which he hath established for ever.
  70 He chose David also his servant, and took him from the sheepfolds:
  71 From following the ewes great with young he brought him to feed Jacob his people, and Israel his inheritance.
  72 So he fed them according to the integrity of his heart; and guided them by the skilfulness of his hands.

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.
