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 the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn.
For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.

1 Timothy 5:1 – 5:25

  1 Rebuke not an elder, but intreat [him] as a father; [and] the younger men as brethren;
  2 The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.
  3 Honour widows that are widows indeed.
  4 But if any widow have children or nephews, let them learn first to shew piety at home, and to requite their parents: for that is good and acceptable before God.
  5 Now she that is a widow indeed, and desolate, trusteth in God, and continueth in supplications and prayers night and day.
  6 But she that liveth in pleasure is dead while she liveth.
  7 And these things give in charge, that they may be blameless.
  8 But if any provide not for his own, and specially for those of his own house, he hath denied the faith, and is worse than an infidel.
  9 Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man,
  10 Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints’ feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work.
  11 But the younger widows refuse: for when they have begun to wax wanton against Christ, they will marry;
  12 Having damnation, because they have cast off their first faith.
  13 And withal they learn [to be] idle, wandering about from house to house; and not only idle, but tattlers also and busybodies, speaking things which they ought not.
  14 I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully.
  15 For some are already turned aside after Satan.
  16 If any man or woman that believeth have widows, let them relieve them, and let not the church be charged; that it may relieve them that are widows indeed.
  17 Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.
  18 For the scripture saith, Thou shalt not muzzle the ox that treadeth out the corn. And, The labourer is worthy of his reward.
  19 Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.
  20 Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.
  21 I charge [thee] before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, and the elect angels, that thou observe these things without preferring one before another, doing nothing by partiality.
  22 Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure.
  23 Drink no longer water, but use a little wine for thy stomach’s sake and thine often infirmities.
  24 Some men’s sins are open beforehand, going before to judgment; and some [men] they follow after.
  25 Likewise also the good works [of some] are manifest beforehand; and they that are otherwise cannot be hid.

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.
