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
The fear of man bringeth a snare
The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.

The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.

Proverbs 29:1 – 29:27

  1 He, that being often reproved hardeneth [his] neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy.
  2 When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.
  3 Whoso loveth wisdom rejoiceth his father: but he that keepeth company with harlots spendeth [his] substance.
  4 The king by judgment establisheth the land: but he that receiveth gifts overthroweth it.
  5 A man that flattereth his neighbour spreadeth a net for his feet.
  6 In the transgression of an evil man [there is] a snare: but the righteous doth sing and rejoice.
  7 The righteous considereth the cause of the poor: [but] the wicked regardeth not to know [it].
  8 Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise [men] turn away wrath.
  9 [If] a wise man contendeth with a foolish man, whether he rage or laugh, [there is] no rest.
  10 The bloodthirsty hate the upright: but the just seek his soul.
  11 A fool uttereth all his mind: but a wise [man] keepeth it in till afterwards.
  12 If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants [are] wicked.
  13 The poor and the deceitful man meet together: the Lord lighteneth both their eyes.
  14 The king that faithfully judgeth the poor, his throne shall be established for ever.
  15 The rod and reproof give wisdom: but a child left [to himself] bringeth his mother to shame.
  16 When the wicked are multiplied, transgression increaseth: but the righteous shall see their fall.
  17 Correct thy son, and he shall give thee rest; yea, he shall give delight unto thy soul.
  18 Where [there is] no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy [is] he.
  19 A servant will not be corrected by words: for though he understand he will not answer.
  20 Seest thou a man [that is] hasty in his words? [there is] more hope of a fool than of him.
  21 He that delicately bringeth up his servant from a child shall have him become [his] son at the length.
  22 An angry man stirreth up strife, and a furious man aboundeth in transgression.
  23 A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honour shall uphold the humble in spirit.
  24 Whoso is partner with a thief hateth his own soul: he heareth cursing, and bewrayeth [it] not.
  25 The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the Lord shall be safe.
  26 Many seek the ruler’s favour; but [every] man’s judgment [cometh] from the Lord.
  27 An unjust man [is] an abomination to the just: and [he that is] upright in the way [is] abomination to the wicked.

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.
