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
House and riches are the inheritance of fathers
House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the Lord.

House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the Lord.

Proverbs 19:1 – 19:29

  1 Better [is] the poor that walketh in his integrity, than [he that is] perverse in his lips, and is a fool.
  2 Also, [that] the soul [be] without knowledge, [it is] not good; and he that hasteth with [his] feet sinneth.
  3 The foolishness of man perverteth his way: and his heart fretteth against the Lord.
  4 Wealth maketh many friends; but the poor is separated from his neighbour.
  5 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and [he that] speaketh lies shall not escape.
  6 Many will intreat the favour of the prince: and every man [is] a friend to him that giveth gifts.
  7 All the brethren of the poor do hate him: how much more do his friends go far from him? he pursueth [them with] words, [yet] they [are] wanting [to him].
  8 He that getteth wisdom loveth his own soul: he that keepeth understanding shall find good.
  9 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and [he that] speaketh lies shall perish.
  10 Delight is not seemly for a fool; much less for a servant to have rule over princes.
  11 The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and [it is] his glory to pass over a transgression.
  12 The king’s wrath [is] as the roaring of a lion; but his favour [is] as dew upon the grass.
  13 A foolish son [is] the calamity of his father: and the contentions of a wife [are] a continual dropping.
  14 House and riches are the inheritance of fathers: and a prudent wife is from the Lord.
  15 Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.
  16 He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul; [but] he that despiseth his ways shall die.
  17 He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.
  18 Chasten thy son while there is hope, and let not thy soul spare for his crying.
  19 A man of great wrath shall suffer punishment: for if thou deliver [him], yet thou must do it again.
  20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
  21 [There are] many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.
  22 The desire of a man [is] his kindness: and a poor man [is] better than a liar.
  23 The fear of the Lord [tendeth] to life: and [he that hath it] shall abide satisfied; he shall not be visited with evil.
  24 A slothful [man] hideth his hand in [his] bosom, and will not so much as bring it to his mouth again.
  25 Smite a scorner, and the simple will beware: and reprove one that hath understanding, [and] he will understand knowledge.
  26 He that wasteth [his] father, [and] chaseth away [his] mother, [is] a son that causeth shame, and bringeth reproach.
  27 Cease, my son, to hear the instruction [that causeth] to err from the words of knowledge.
  28 An ungodly witness scorneth judgment: and the mouth of the wicked devoureth iniquity.
  29 Judgments are prepared for scorners, and stripes for the back of fools.

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.
