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
Even so the tongue is a little member,
Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!

James 3:1 – 3:18

  1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.
  2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same [is] a perfect man, [and] able also to bridle the whole body.
  3 Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
  4 Behold also the ships, which though [they be] so great, and [are] driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
  5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
  6 And the tongue [is] a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
  7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
  8 But the tongue can no man tame; [it is] an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
  9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
  10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
  11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet [water] and bitter?
  12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so [can] no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
  13 Who [is] a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
  14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
  15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but [is] earthly, sensual, devilish.
  16 For where envying and strife [is], there [is] confusion and every evil work.
  17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, [and] easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
  18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

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.
