...
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

I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.

Genesis 9:1 – 9:29

  1 And God blessed Noah and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.
  2 And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth [upon] the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.
  3 Every moving thing that liveth shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things.
  4 But flesh with the life thereof, [which is] the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
  5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the life of man.
  6 Whoso sheddeth man’s blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.
  7 And you, be ye fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.
  8 And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying,
  9 And I, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your seed after you;
  10 And with every living creature that [is] with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.
  11 And I will establish my covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.
  12 And God said, This [is] the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that [is] with you, for perpetual generations:
  13 I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth.
  14 And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:
  15 And I will remember my covenant, which [is] between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh.
  16 And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that [is] upon the earth.
  17 And God said unto Noah, This [is] the token of the covenant, which I have established between me and all flesh that [is] upon the earth.
  18 And the sons of Noah, that went forth of the ark, were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: and Ham [is] the father of Canaan.
  19 These [are] the three sons of Noah: and of them was the whole earth overspread.
  20 And Noah began [to be] an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:
  21 And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.
  22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.
  23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid [it] upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces [were] backward, and they saw not their father’s nakedness.
  24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.
  25 And he said, Cursed [be] Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.
  26 And he said, Blessed [be] the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
  27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
  28 And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.
  29 And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty years: and he died.

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.
