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 thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction
But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.

But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.

Psalms 55:1 – 55:23

  1 To the chief Musician on Neginoth, Maschil, [A Psalm] of David. Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication.
  2 Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;
  3 Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me.
  4 My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.
  5 Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me.
  6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! [for then] would I fly away, and be at rest.
  7 Lo, [then] would I wander far off, [and] remain in the wilderness. Selah.
  8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm [and] tempest.
  9 Destroy, O Lord, [and] divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city.
  10 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow [are] in the midst of it.
  11 Wickedness [is] in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets.
  12 For [it was] not an enemy [that] reproached me; then I could have borne [it]: neither [was it] he that hated me [that] did magnify [himself] against me; then I would have hid myself from him:
  13 But [it was] thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.
  14 We took sweet counsel together, [and] walked unto the house of God in company.
  15 Let death seize upon them, [and] let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness [is] in their dwellings, [and] among them.
  16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the Lord shall save me.
  17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.
  18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle [that was] against me: for there were many with me.
  19 God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.
  20 He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath broken his covenant.
  21 [The words] of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war [was] in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet [were] they drawn swords.
  22 Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
  23 But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in 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.
