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
From whence come wars and fightings among you?
From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?

From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?

James 4:1 – 4:17

  1 From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?
  2 Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
  3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume [it] upon your lusts.
  4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
  5 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy?
  6 But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
  7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
  8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse [your] hands, [ye] sinners; and purify [your] hearts, [ye] double minded.
  9 Be afflicted, and mourn, and weep: let your laughter be turned to mourning, and [your] joy to heaviness.
  10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
  11 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of [his] brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.
  12 There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy: who art thou that judgest another?
  13 Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain:
  14 Whereas ye know not what [shall be] on the morrow. For what [is] your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
  15 For that ye [ought] to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that.
  16 But now ye rejoice in your boastings: all such rejoicing is evil.
  17 Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth [it] not, to him it is sin.

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.
