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
Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings
Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.

Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.

Proverbs 4:1 – 4:27

  1 Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father, and attend to know understanding.
  2 For I give you good doctrine, forsake ye not my law.
  3 For I was my father’s son, tender and only [beloved] in the sight of my mother.
  4 He taught me also, and said unto me, Let thine heart retain my words: keep my commandments, and live.
  5 Get wisdom, get understanding: forget [it] not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
  6 Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.
  7 Wisdom [is] the principal thing; [therefore] get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
  8 Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.
  9 She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.
  10 Hear, O my son, and receive my sayings; and the years of thy life shall be many.
  11 I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.
  12 When thou goest, thy steps shall not be straitened; and when thou runnest, thou shalt not stumble.
  13 Take fast hold of instruction; let [her] not go: keep her; for she [is] thy life.
  14 Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil [men].
  15 Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away.
  16 For they sleep not, except they have done mischief; and their sleep is taken away, unless they cause [some] to fall.
  17 For they eat the bread of wickedness, and drink the wine of violence.
  18 But the path of the just [is] as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.
  19 The way of the wicked [is] as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.
  20 My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings.
  21 Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
  22 For they [are] life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh.
  23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it [are] the issues of life.
  24 Put away from thee a froward mouth, and perverse lips put far from thee.
  25 Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.
  26 Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.
  27 Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil.

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.
