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 of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.

Genesis 2:1 – 2:25

  1 Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
  2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
  3 And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.
  4 These [are] the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,
  5 And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the Lord God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and [there was] not a man to till the ground.
  6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
  7 And the Lord God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
  8 And the Lord God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
  9 And out of the ground made the Lord God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
  10 And a river went out of Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads.
  11 The name of the first [is] Pison: that [is] it which compasseth the whole land of Havilah, where [there is] gold;
  12 And the gold of that land [is] good: there [is] bdellium and the onyx stone.
  13 And the name of the second river [is] Gihon: the same [is] it that compasseth the whole land of Ethiopia.
  14 And the name of the third river [is] Hiddekel: that [is] it which goeth toward the east of Assyria. And the fourth river [is] Euphrates.
  15 And the Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it.
  16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat:
  17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
  18 And the Lord God said, [It is] not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
  19 And out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought [them] unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that [was] the name thereof.
  20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.
  21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
  22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
  23 And Adam said, This [is] now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
  24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
  25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

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.
