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. John 1:17
For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.

For when they shall say, Peace and safety then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child and they shall not escape.

1Thess 5:1 – 5:28

  1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
  2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
  3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
  4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.
  5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
  6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
  7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
  8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
  9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
  10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
  11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
  12 And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you.
  13 And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves.
  14 Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be patient toward all men.
  15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
  16 Rejoice evermore.
  17 Pray without ceasing.
  18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
  19 Quench not the Spirit.
  20 Despise not prophesyings.
  21 Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
  22 Abstain from all appearance of evil.
  23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
  25 Brethren, pray for us.
  26 Greet all the brethren with an holy kiss.
  27 I charge you by the Lord that this epistle be read unto all the holy brethren.
  28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen. The first epistle unto the Thessalonians was written from Athens.

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.
