WHO WE ARE:
We teach for doctrines those brought to this nation by the many people fleeing the Old World to escape religious persecution. These doctrines were then commonly known as "the doctrines of grace", being taught almost unanimously by professing Christians. They were so designated because they so clearly set forth both the necessity, and the surety, of salvation by grace alone. While it is true they fell into much disfavor during the 1990s, yet it is also true that God has revived them in recent years; and we believe that through them He is purifying His true people in preparation for the soon return of Jesus in glory and judgement. The doctrines are generally set forth in the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith available free upon your request.
Our Purpose is simple: Glorify God through Jesus Christ! Though we have not reached the ultimate of this goal,( nor will we until the resurrection), yet, by faith and repentance we glorify Him in the spirit of holiness.We propose to "cleave unto the Lord with purpose of heart" ( Acts 11:23), while we "press toward the mark of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus."Phil.3:14. We purpose to worship our Lord daily in the "beauty of holiness" (Ps.96:9); and in our church services to worship Him in song; prayer; and preaching.
WHAT WE OFFER:
We offer to hungry souls the Bread of Life, Jesus Christ! As Peter said, "Silver and Gold have we none; but such as I have give I thee" Acts 3:16. We offer no earthly treasure, but the treasure of Heaven-the faith of Jesus- which being tried with fire, perisheth not. 1 Peter 1:7. If this you seek, we can promise to not dissapoint you!
We cannot offer instant gratification: but to all who patiently endure, ( Romans2:7), we can show the way of peace, contentment, and the joy of salvation.
We cannot offer an easy way "Because straight is the gate and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there are who find it". Mat.7:13-14.
We can offer a "plain path" (Ps.27:1; Prov.8:8-11; Isa.40:3-5) and help on your way. (1 Thes.5:14; Gal.6:1-2)
As Moses said to Hobab (Num10:29), so say we: "We are journeying unto the place of which the Lord said, I will give it to you: come thou with us, and we will do thee good". In His lovingkindness our Lord feeds us with the manna of His word, leading us through the wilderness of this world; giving us a taste of of the Promised Land though the milk and honey of His Mercy and Grace.
"Therefore is shall be, if thou go with us--that what goodness the Lord shall do unto us, the same will we do unto thee." (Num.10:32)
Our invitation is as simple as that of Philip to Nathanael (John 1:45-46), and that of the Samaritan woman to her city (John 4:27-30": COME SEE!
