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 Lord [is] good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
For now will I break his yoke from off thee, and will burst thy bonds in sunder.

The Lord is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.

Nahum 1:1 – 1:15

  1 The burden of Nineveh. The book of the vision of Nahum the Elkoshite.
  2 God [is] jealous, and the Lord revengeth; the Lord revengeth, and [is] furious; the Lord will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth [wrath] for his enemies.
  3 The Lord [is] slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit [the wicked]: the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds [are] the dust of his feet.
  4 He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth.
  5 The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.
  6 Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.
  7 The Lord [is] good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.
  8 But with an overrunning flood he will make an utter end of the place thereof, and darkness shall pursue his enemies.
  9 What do ye imagine against the Lord? he will make an utter end: affliction shall not rise up the second time.
  10 For while [they be] folden together [as] thorns, and while they are drunken [as] drunkards, they shall be devoured as stubble fully dry.
  11 There is [one] come out of thee, that imagineth evil against the Lord, a wicked counsellor.
  12 Thus saith the Lord; Though [they be] quiet, and likewise many, yet thus shall they be cut down, when he shall pass through. Though I have afflicted thee, I will afflict thee no more.
  13 For now will I break his yoke from off thee, and will burst thy bonds in sunder.
  14 And the Lord hath given a commandment concerning thee, [that] no more of thy name be sown: out of the house of thy gods will I cut off the graven image and the molten image: I will make thy grave; for thou art vile.
  15 Behold upon the mountains the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace! O Judah, keep thy solemn feasts, perform thy vows: for the wicked shall no more pass through thee; he is utterly cut off.

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.
