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
My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart,
My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.

Psalms 73:1 – 73:28

  1 A Psalm of Asaph. Truly God [is] good to Israel, [even] to such as are of a clean heart.
  2 But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped.
  3 For I was envious at the foolish, [when] I saw the prosperity of the wicked.
  4 For [there are] no bands in their death: but their strength [is] firm.
  5 They [are] not in trouble [as other] men; neither are they plagued like [other] men.
  6 Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them [as] a garment.
  7 Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish.
  8 They are corrupt, and speak wickedly [concerning] oppression: they speak loftily.
  9 They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth.
  10 Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full [cup] are wrung out to them.
  11 And they say, How doth God know? and is there knowledge in the most High?
  12 Behold, these [are] the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase [in] riches.
  13 Verily I have cleansed my heart [in] vain, and washed my hands in innocency.
  14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.
  15 If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend [against] the generation of thy children.
  16 When I thought to know this, it [was] too painful for me;
  17 Until I went into the sanctuary of God; [then] understood I their end.
  18 Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction.
  19 How are they [brought] into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors.
  20 As a dream when [one] awaketh; [so], O Lord, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image.
  21 Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins.
  22 So foolish [was] I, and ignorant: I was [as] a beast before thee.
  23 Nevertheless I [am] continually with thee: thou hast holden [me] by my right hand.
  24 Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me [to] glory.
  25 Whom have I in heaven [but thee]? and [there is] none upon earth [that] I desire beside thee.
  26 My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever.
  27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee.
  28 But [it is] good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works.

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.
