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
A gracious woman retaineth honour: and strong [men] retain riches.

There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.

Proverbs 11:1 – 11:31

  1 A false balance [is] abomination to the Lord: but a just weight [is] his delight.
  2 [When] pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly [is] wisdom.
  3 The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.
  4 Riches profit not in the day of wrath: but righteousness delivereth from death.
  5 The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.
  6 The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: but transgressors shall be taken in [their own] naughtiness.
  7 When a wicked man dieth, [his] expectation shall perish: and the hope of unjust [men] perisheth.
  8 The righteous is delivered out of trouble, and the wicked cometh in his stead.
  9 An hypocrite with [his] mouth destroyeth his neighbour: but through knowledge shall the just be delivered.
  10 When it goeth well with the righteous, the city rejoiceth: and when the wicked perish, [there is] shouting.
  11 By the blessing of the upright the city is exalted: but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
  12 He that is void of wisdom despiseth his neighbour: but a man of understanding holdeth his peace.
  13 A talebearer revealeth secrets: but he that is of a faithful spirit concealeth the matter.
  14 Where no counsel [is], the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors [there is] safety.
  15 He that is surety for a stranger shall smart [for it]: and he that hateth suretiship is sure.
  16 A gracious woman retaineth honour: and strong [men] retain riches.
  17 The merciful man doeth good to his own soul: but [he that is] cruel troubleth his own flesh.
  18 The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness [shall be] a sure reward.
  19 As righteousness [tendeth] to life: so he that pursueth evil [pursueth it] to his own death.
  20 They that are of a froward heart [are] abomination to the Lord: but [such as are] upright in [their] way [are] his delight.
  21 [Though] hand [join] in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
  22 [As] a jewel of gold in a swine’s snout, [so is] a fair woman which is without discretion.
  23 The desire of the righteous [is] only good: [but] the expectation of the wicked [is] wrath.
  24 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty.
  25 The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.
  26 He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: but blessing [shall be] upon the head of him that selleth [it].
  27 He that diligently seeketh good favour: but he that seeketh mischief, it shall come unto him.
  28 He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.
  29 He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the fool [shall be] servant to the wise of heart.
  30 The fruit of the righteous [is] a tree of life; and he that winneth souls [is] wise.
  31 Behold, the righteous shall be recompensed in the earth: much more the wicked and the sinner.

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.
