...
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
  3 Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?

Philemon 1:1 – 1:25

  1 Paul, a prisoner of Jesus Christ, and Timothy [our] brother, unto Philemon our dearly beloved, and fellowlabourer,
  2 And to [our] beloved Apphia, and Archippus our fellowsoldier, and to the church in thy house:
  3 Grace to you, and peace, from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
  4 I thank my God, making mention of thee always in my prayers,
  5 Hearing of thy love and faith, which thou hast toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints;
  6 That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.
  7 For we have great joy and consolation in thy love, because the bowels of the saints are refreshed by thee, brother.
  8 Wherefore, though I might be much bold in Christ to enjoin thee that which is convenient,
  9 Yet for love’s sake I rather beseech [thee], being such an one as Paul the aged, and now also a prisoner of Jesus Christ.
  10 I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds:
  11 Which in time past was to thee unprofitable, but now profitable to thee and to me:
  12 Whom I have sent again: thou therefore receive him, that is, mine own bowels:
  13 Whom I would have retained with me, that in thy stead he might have ministered unto me in the bonds of the gospel:
  14 But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
  15 For perhaps he therefore departed for a season, that thou shouldest receive him for ever;
  16 Not now as a servant, but above a servant, a brother beloved, specially to me, but how much more unto thee, both in the flesh, and in the Lord?
  17 If thou count me therefore a partner, receive him as myself.
  18 If he hath wronged thee, or oweth [thee] ought, put that on mine account;
  19 I Paul have written [it] with mine own hand, I will repay [it]: albeit I do not say to thee how thou owest unto me even thine own self besides.
  20 Yea, brother, let me have joy of thee in the Lord: refresh my bowels in the Lord.
  21 Having confidence in thy obedience I wrote unto thee, knowing that thou wilt also do more than I say.
  22 But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.
  23 There salute thee Epaphras, my fellowprisoner in Christ Jesus;
  24 Marcus, Aristarchus, Demas, Lucas, my fellowlabourers.
  25 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ [be] with your spirit. Amen. Written from Rome to Philemon, by Onesimus a servant.

 

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.
