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. John 1:17
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

John 10:1 – 10:42

  1 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.
  2 But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep.
  3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out.
  4 And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice.
  5 And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
  6 This parable spake Jesus unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them.
  7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
  8 All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them.
  9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.
  10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
  11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
  12 But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
  13 The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
  14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
  15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep.
  16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd.
  17 Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again.
  18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.
  19 There was a division therefore again among the Jews for these sayings.
  20 And many of them said, He hath a devil, and is mad; why hear ye him?
  21 Others said, These are not the words of him that hath a devil. Can a devil open the eyes of the blind?
  22 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter.
  23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon’s porch.
  24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Christ, tell us plainly.
  25 Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father’s name, they bear witness of me.
  26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you.
  27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.
  28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand.
  29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand.
  30 I and my Father are one.
  31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
  32 Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?
  33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.
  34 Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?
  35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken.
  36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?
  37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.
  38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.
  39 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand.
  40 And went away again beyond Jordan into the place where John at first baptized; and there he abode.
  41 And many resorted unto him, and said, John did no miracle: but all things that John spake of this man were true.
  42 And many believed on him there.

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.
