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 such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled,
For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;

Hebrews 7:1 – 7:28

  1 For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;
  2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;
  3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.
  4 Now consider how great this man [was], unto whom even the patriarch Abraham gave the tenth of the spoils.
  5 And verily they that are of the sons of Levi, who receive the office of the priesthood, have a commandment to take tithes of the people according to the law, that is, of their brethren, though they come out of the loins of Abraham:
  6 But he whose descent is not counted from them received tithes of Abraham, and blessed him that had the promises.
  7 And without all contradiction the less is blessed of the better.
  8 And here men that die receive tithes; but there he [receiveth them], of whom it is witnessed that he liveth.
  9 And as I may so say, Levi also, who receiveth tithes, payed tithes in Abraham.
  10 For he was yet in the loins of his father, when Melchisedec met him.
  11 If therefore perfection were by the Levitical priesthood, (for under it the people received the law,) what further need [was there] that another priest should rise after the order of Melchisedec, and not be called after the order of Aaron?
  12 For the priesthood being changed, there is made of necessity a change also of the law.
  13 For he of whom these things are spoken pertaineth to another tribe, of which no man gave attendance at the altar.
  14 For [it is] evident that our Lord sprang out of Juda; of which tribe Moses spake nothing concerning priesthood.
  15 And it is yet far more evident: for that after the similitude of Melchisedec there ariseth another priest,
  16 Who is made, not after the law of a carnal commandment, but after the power of an endless life.
  17 For he testifieth, Thou [art] a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
  18 For there is verily a disannulling of the commandment going before for the weakness and unprofitableness thereof.
  19 For the law made nothing perfect, but the bringing in of a better hope [did]; by the which we draw nigh unto God.
  20 And inasmuch as not without an oath [he was made priest]:
  21 (For those priests were made without an oath; but this with an oath by him that said unto him, The Lord sware and will not repent, Thou [art] a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec:)
  22 By so much was Jesus made a surety of a better testament.
  23 And they truly were many priests, because they were not suffered to continue by reason of death:
  24 But this [man], because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood.
  25 Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them.
  26 For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens;
  27 Who needeth not daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifice, first for his own sins, and then for the people’s: for this he did once, when he offered up himself.
  28 For the law maketh men high priests which have infirmity; but the word of the oath, which was since the law, [maketh] the Son, who is consecrated for evermore.

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.
