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
Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar among
Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, yet will not his foolishness depart from him.

Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, yet will not his foolishness depart from him.

Proverbs 27:1 – 27:27

  1 Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.
  2 Let another man praise thee, and not thine own mouth; a stranger, and not thine own lips.
  3 A stone [is] heavy, and the sand weighty; but a fool’s wrath [is] heavier than them both.
  4 Wrath [is] cruel, and anger [is] outrageous; but who [is] able to stand before envy?
  5 Open rebuke [is] better than secret love.
  6 Faithful [are] the wounds of a friend; but the kisses of an enemy [are] deceitful.
  7 The full soul loatheth an honeycomb; but to the hungry soul every bitter thing is sweet.
  8 As a bird that wandereth from her nest, so [is] a man that wandereth from his place.
  9 Ointment and perfume rejoice the heart: so [doth] the sweetness of a man’s friend by hearty counsel.
  10 Thine own friend, and thy father’s friend, forsake not; neither go into thy brother’s house in the day of thy calamity: [for] better [is] a neighbour [that is] near than a brother far off.
  11 My son, be wise, and make my heart glad, that I may answer him that reproacheth me.
  12 A prudent [man] foreseeth the evil, [and] hideth himself; [but] the simple pass on, [and] are punished.
  13 Take his garment that is surety for a stranger, and take a pledge of him for a strange woman.
  14 He that blesseth his friend with a loud voice, rising early in the morning, it shall be counted a curse to him.
  15 A continual dropping in a very rainy day and a contentious woman are alike.
  16 Whosoever hideth her hideth the wind, and the ointment of his right hand, [which] bewrayeth [itself].
  17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
  18 Whoso keepeth the fig tree shall eat the fruit thereof: so he that waiteth on his master shall be honoured.
  19 As in water face [answereth] to face, so the heart of man to man.
  20 Hell and destruction are never full; so the eyes of man are never satisfied.
  21 [As] the fining pot for silver, and the furnace for gold; so [is] a man to his praise.
  22 Though thou shouldest bray a fool in a mortar among wheat with a pestle, yet will not his foolishness depart from him.
  23 Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, [and] look well to thy herds.
  24 For riches [are] not for ever: and doth the crown [endure] to every generation?
  25 The hay appeareth, and the tender grass sheweth itself, and herbs of the mountains are gathered.
  26 The lambs [are] for thy clothing, and the goats [are] the price of the field.
  27 And [thou shalt have] goats’ milk enough for thy food, for the food of thy household, and [for] the maintenance for thy maidens.

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.
