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
By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches,
By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life.

By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life.

Proverbs 22:1 – 22:29

  1 A [good] name [is] rather to be chosen than great riches, [and] loving favour rather than silver and gold.
  2 The rich and poor meet together: the Lord [is] the maker of them all.
  3 A prudent [man] foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished.
  4 By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life.
  5 Thorns and snares are in the way of the froward: he that doth keep his soul shall be far from them.
  6 Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.
  7 The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower [is] servant to the lender.
  8 He that soweth iniquity shall reap vanity: and the rod of his anger shall fail.
  9 He that hath a bountiful eye shall be blessed; for he giveth of his bread to the poor.
  10 Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out; yea, strife and reproach shall cease.
  11 He that loveth pureness of heart, [for] the grace of his lips the king [shall be] his friend.
  12 The eyes of the Lord preserve knowledge, and he overthroweth the words of the transgressor.
  13 The slothful [man] saith, [There is] a lion without, I shall be slain in the streets.
  14 The mouth of strange women [is] a deep pit: he that is abhorred of the Lord shall fall therein.
  15 Foolishness [is] bound in the heart of a child; [but] the rod of correction shall drive it far from him.
  16 He that oppresseth the poor to increase his [riches], [and] he that giveth to the rich, [shall] surely [come] to want.
  17 Bow down thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, and apply thine heart unto my knowledge.
  18 For [it is] a pleasant thing if thou keep them within thee; they shall withal be fitted in thy lips.
  19 That thy trust may be in the Lord, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee.
  20 Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge,
  21 That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth; that thou mightest answer the words of truth to them that send unto thee?
  22 Rob not the poor, because he [is] poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
  23 For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them.
  24 Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go:
  25 Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul.
  26 Be not thou [one] of them that strike hands, [or] of them that are sureties for debts.
  27 If thou hast nothing to pay, why should he take away thy bed from under thee?
  28 Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set.
  29 Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean [men].

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.
