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
Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed
For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.

2 Corinthians 4:1 – 4:18

  1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
  2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
  3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
  4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
  5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
  6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
  7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
  8 [We are] troubled on every side, yet not distressed; [we are] perplexed, but not in despair;
  9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
  10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
  11 For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
  12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.
  13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
  14 Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present [us] with you.
  15 For all things [are] for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
  16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward [man] is renewed day by day.
  17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding [and] eternal weight of glory;
  18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen [are] temporal; but the things which are not seen [are] eternal.

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.
