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 do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men?
For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

Galatians 1:1 – 1:24

  1 Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)
  2 And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:
  3 Grace [be] to you and peace from God the Father, and [from] our Lord Jesus Christ,
  4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:
  5 To whom [be] glory for ever and ever. Amen.
  6 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:
  7 Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
  8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
  9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
  10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
  11 But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.
  12 For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught [it], but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.
  13 For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:
  14 And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.
  15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called [me] by his grace,
  16 To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood:
  17 Neither went I up to Jerusalem to them which were apostles before me; but I went into Arabia, and returned again unto Damascus.
  18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and abode with him fifteen days.
  19 But other of the apostles saw I none, save James the Lord’s brother.
  20 Now the things which I write unto you, behold, before God, I lie not.
  21 Afterwards I came into the regions of Syria and Cilicia;
  22 And was unknown by face unto the churches of Judaea which were in Christ:
  23 But they had heard only, That he which persecuted us in times past now preacheth the faith which once he destroyed.
  24 And they glorified God in me.

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.
