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 the Lord is the beginning of wisdom
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

Proverbs 9:1 – 9:18

  1 Wisdom hath builded her house, she hath hewn out her seven pillars:
  2 She hath killed her beasts; she hath mingled her wine; she hath also furnished her table.
  3 She hath sent forth her maidens: she crieth upon the highest places of the city,
  4 Whoso [is] simple, let him turn in hither: [as for] him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,
  5 Come, eat of my bread, and drink of the wine [which] I have mingled.
  6 Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding.
  7 He that reproveth a scorner getteth to himself shame: and he that rebuketh a wicked [man getteth] himself a blot.
  8 Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee: rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee.
  9 Give [instruction] to a wise [man], and he will be yet wiser: teach a just [man], and he will increase in learning.
  10 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
  11 For by me thy days shall be multiplied, and the years of thy life shall be increased.
  12 If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but [if] thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear [it].
  13 A foolish woman [is] clamorous: [she is] simple, and knoweth nothing.
  14 For she sitteth at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city,
  15 To call passengers who go right on their ways:
  16 Whoso [is] simple, let him turn in hither: and [as for] him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him,
  17 Stolen waters are sweet, and bread [eaten] in secret is pleasant.
  18 But he knoweth not that the dead [are] there; [and that] her guests [are] in the depths of hell.

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.
