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
And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all [men], even as we [do] toward you:
For what thanks can we render to God again for you, for all the joy wherewith we joy for your sakes before our God;

Now God himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you.

1 Thessalonians 3:1 – 3:13

  1 Wherefore when we could no longer forbear, we thought it good to be left at Athens alone;
  2 And sent Timotheus, our brother, and minister of God, and our fellowlabourer in the gospel of Christ, to establish you, and to comfort you concerning your faith:
  3 That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.
  4 For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know.
  5 For this cause, when I could no longer forbear, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter have tempted you, and our labour be in vain.
  6 But now when Timotheus came from you unto us, and brought us good tidings of your faith and charity, and that ye have good remembrance of us always, desiring greatly to see us, as we also [to see] you:
  7 Therefore, brethren, we were comforted over you in all our affliction and distress by your faith:
  8 For now we live, if ye stand fast in the Lord.
  9 For what thanks can we render to God again for you, for all the joy wherewith we joy for your sakes before our God;
  10 Night and day praying exceedingly that we might see your face, and might perfect that which is lacking in your faith?
  11 Now God himself and our Father, and our Lord Jesus Christ, direct our way unto you.
  12 And the Lord make you to increase and abound in love one toward another, and toward all [men], even as we [do] toward you:
  13 To the end he may stablish your hearts unblameable in holiness before God, even our Father, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ with all his saints.

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.
