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 this we know that we love the children of God
By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.

1John 5:1 – 5:21

  1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.
  2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments.
  3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
  4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, [even] our faith.
  5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
  6 This is he that came by water and blood, [even] Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
  7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
  8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
  9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.
  10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.
  11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
  12 He that hath the Son hath life; [and] he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
  13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.
  14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
  15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
  16 If any man see his brother sin a sin [which is] not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.
  17 All unrighteousness is sin: and there is a sin not unto death.
  18 We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
  19 [And] we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
  20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, [even] in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
  21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

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.
