...
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
They say unto him, Cæsar’s. Then saith he unto them,
They say unto him, Cæsar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Cæsar the things which are Cæsar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.

They say unto him, Cæsar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Cæsar the things which are Cæsar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.

Matthew 22:1 – 22:46

  1 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,
  2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,
  3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.
  4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and [my] fatlings [are] killed, and all things [are] ready: come unto the marriage.
  5 But they made light of [it], and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:
  6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated [them] spitefully, and slew [them].
  7 But when the king heard [thereof], he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.
  8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.
  9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.
  10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.
  11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:
  12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.
  13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast [him] into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
  14 For many are called, but few [are] chosen.
  15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in [his] talk.
  16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any [man]: for thou regardest not the person of men.
  17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?
  18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, [ye] hypocrites?
  19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.
  20 And he saith unto them, Whose [is] this image and superscription?
  21 They say unto him, Cæsar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Cæsar the things which are Cæsar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.
  22 When they had heard [these words], they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.
  23 The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,
  24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.
  25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother:
  26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.
  27 And last of all the woman died also.
  28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.
  29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.
  30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
  31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,
  32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
  33 And when the multitude heard [this], they were astonished at his doctrine.
  34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.
  35 Then one of them, [which was] a lawyer, asked [him a question], tempting him, and saying,
  36 Master, which [is] the great commandment in the law?
  37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
  38 This is the first and great commandment.
  39 And the second [is] like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
  40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.
  41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,
  42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, [The Son] of David.
  43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,
  44 The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?
  45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?
  46 And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any [man] from that day forth ask him any more [questions].

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.
