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
That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.

That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.

Hebrews 6:1 – 6:20

  1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
  2 Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
  3 And this will we do, if God permit.
  4 For [it is] impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,
  5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,
  6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put [him] to an open shame.
  7 For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God:
  8 But that which beareth thorns and briers [is] rejected, and [is] nigh unto cursing; whose end [is] to be burned.
  9 But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak.
  10 For God [is] not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister.
  11 And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:
  12 That ye be not slothful, but followers of them who through faith and patience inherit the promises.
  13 For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself,
  14 Saying, Surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee.
  15 And so, after he had patiently endured, he obtained the promise.
  16 For men verily swear by the greater: and an oath for confirmation [is] to them an end of all strife.
  17 Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of his counsel, confirmed [it] by an oath:
  18 That by two immutable things, in which [it was] impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us:
  19 Which [hope] we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;
  20 Whither the forerunner is for us entered, [even] Jesus, made an high priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.

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.
