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
For all the promises of God in him [are] yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
But as God is true, our word toward you was not yea and nay.

For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.

2 Corinthians 1:1 – 1:24

  1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy [our] brother, unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia:
  2 Grace [be] to you and peace from God our Father, and [from] the Lord Jesus Christ.
  3 Blessed [be] God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
  4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
  5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
  6 And whether we be afflicted, [it is] for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, [it is] for your consolation and salvation.
  7 And our hope of you [is] stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so [shall ye be] also of the consolation.
  8 For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuch that we despaired even of life:
  9 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:
  10 Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver [us];
  11 Ye also helping together by prayer for us, that for the gift [bestowed] upon us by the means of many persons thanks may be given by many on our behalf.
  12 For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.
  13 For we write none other things unto you, than what ye read or acknowledge; and I trust ye shall acknowledge even to the end;
  14 As also ye have acknowledged us in part, that we are your rejoicing, even as ye also [are] ours in the day of the Lord Jesus.
  15 And in this confidence I was minded to come unto you before, that ye might have a second benefit;
  16 And to pass by you into Macedonia, and to come again out of Macedonia unto you, and of you to be brought on my way toward Judaea.
  17 When I therefore was thus minded, did I use lightness? or the things that I purpose, do I purpose according to the flesh, that with me there should be yea yea, and nay nay?
  18 But [as] God [is] true, our word toward you was not yea and nay.
  19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us, [even] by me and Silvanus and Timotheus, was not yea and nay, but in him was yea.
  20 For all the promises of God in him [are] yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
  21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath anointed us, [is] God;
  22 Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts.
  23 Moreover I call God for a record upon my soul, that to spare you I came not as yet unto Corinth.
  24 Not for that we have dominion over your faith, but are helpers of your joy: for by faith ye stand.

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.
