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 my people would not hearken
But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.

But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.

Psalms 81:1 – 81:16

  1 To the chief Musician upon Gittith, [A Psalm] of Asaph. Sing aloud unto God our strength: make a joyful noise unto the God of Jacob.
  2 Take a psalm, and bring hither the timbrel, the pleasant harp with the psaltery.
  3 Blow up the trumpet in the new moon, in the time appointed, on our solemn feast day.
  4 For this [was] a statute for Israel, [and] a law of the God of Jacob.
  5 This he ordained in Joseph [for] a testimony, when he went out through the land of Egypt: [where] I heard a language [that] I understood not.
  6 I removed his shoulder from the burden: his hands were delivered from the pots.
  7 Thou calledst in trouble, and I delivered thee; I answered thee in the secret place of thunder: I proved thee at the waters of Meribah. Selah.
  8 Hear, O my people, and I will testify unto thee: O Israel, if thou wilt hearken unto me;
  9 There shall no strange god be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god.
  10 I [am] the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.
  11 But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.
  12 So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: [and] they walked in their own counsels.
  13 Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, [and] Israel had walked in my ways!
  14 I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries.
  15 The haters of the Lord should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever.
  16 He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.

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.
