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
Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity:
Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence.

Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence.

Job 15:1 – 15:35

  1 Then answered Eliphaz the Temanite, and said,
  2 Should a wise man utter vain knowledge, and fill his belly with the east wind?
  3 Should he reason with unprofitable talk? or with speeches wherewith he can do no good?
  4 Yea, thou castest off fear, and restrainest prayer before God.
  5 For thy mouth uttereth thine iniquity, and thou choosest the tongue of the crafty.
  6 Thine own mouth condemneth thee, and not I: yea, thine own lips testify against thee.
  7 [Art] thou the first man [that] was born? or wast thou made before the hills?
  8 Hast thou heard the secret of God? and dost thou restrain wisdom to thyself?
  9 What knowest thou, that we know not? [what] understandest thou, which [is] not in us?
  10 With us [are] both the grayheaded and very aged men, much elder than thy father.
  11 [Are] the consolations of God small with thee? is there any secret thing with thee?
  12 Why doth thine heart carry thee away? and what do thy eyes wink at,
  13 That thou turnest thy spirit against God, and lettest [such] words go out of thy mouth?
  14 What [is] man, that he should be clean? and [he which is] born of a woman, that he should be righteous?
  15 Behold, he putteth no trust in his saints; yea, the heavens are not clean in his sight.
  16 How much more abominable and filthy [is] man, which drinketh iniquity like water?
  17 I will shew thee, hear me; and that [which] I have seen I will declare;
  18 Which wise men have told from their fathers, and have not hid [it]:
  19 Unto whom alone the earth was given, and no stranger passed among them.
  20 The wicked man travaileth with pain all [his] days, and the number of years is hidden to the oppressor.
  21 A dreadful sound [is] in his ears: in prosperity the destroyer shall come upon him.
  22 He believeth not that he shall return out of darkness, and he is waited for of the sword.
  23 He wandereth abroad for bread, [saying], Where [is it]? he knoweth that the day of darkness is ready at his hand.
  24 Trouble and anguish shall make him afraid; they shall prevail against him, as a king ready to the battle.
  25 For he stretcheth out his hand against God, and strengtheneth himself against the Almighty.
  26 He runneth upon him, [even] on [his] neck, upon the thick bosses of his bucklers:
  27 Because he covereth his face with his fatness, and maketh collops of fat on [his] flanks.
  28 And he dwelleth in desolate cities, [and] in houses which no man inhabiteth, which are ready to become heaps.
  29 He shall not be rich, neither shall his substance continue, neither shall he prolong the perfection thereof upon the earth.
  30 He shall not depart out of darkness; the flame shall dry up his branches, and by the breath of his mouth shall he go away.
  31 Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompence.
  32 It shall be accomplished before his time, and his branch shall not be green.
  33 He shall shake off his unripe grape as the vine, and shall cast off his flower as the olive.
  34 For the congregation of hypocrites [shall be] desolate, and fire shall consume the tabernacles of bribery.
  35 They conceive mischief, and bring forth vanity, and their belly prepareth deceit.

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.
