2 Thus saith the LORD the maker thereof, the LORD that formed it, to establish it; the LORD is his name;

3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Pardon our mess - we are permanently under construction -- building unity in the body of Christ until Jesus comes!



What Denomination Is This???


We are frequently asked this question, and the answer is always the same: Christian.

This site is dedicated to the God of the Bible. God has revealed Himself, and is revealing Himself, through God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. As a non-denominational Christian site, we concentrate on the essential Christian doctrine that unites us as a body of believers.

The Church is the collection of all those who believe and follow Jesus as their Lord and Saviour. Being saved by the blood of Christ is not a denominational issue. And those whom the Lord has saved, are saved by grace through faith alone in Him, trusting in Christ as Lord and Saviour. They are NOT saved by belonging to a particular denomination.

The Lord has called for us, through His Word, to love our brothers and sisters in Christ:
34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.(John 13:34-35)
We may strongly differ in some doctrinal matters, but are called to unity in core doctrinal beliefs, like the Deity of Christ, the Trinity, and other core doctrine that makes up Christianity. The Lord looks to your heart, and not your denomination, in His love for you. The core doctrine we preach is that if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, that you shall be saved:

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. (Romans 10:9)
So our denomination is "classic Christianity", witnessing that Jesus died on the cross for your sins, so that you might live. We have provided a few key scriptures in our statement of faith to summarize where we stand, although we believe it is important to recognize that the whole Bible is the Word of God, and that all doctrinal matters must be tested in the light of scripture as the final authority. A statement of faith can at best only capture the highlights or key doctrinal matters of ones faith:

Statement of Faith

Our emphasis on the roots of classic Christianity is an attempt to bring together the Body of Christ. With this website, we are trying to build a place for the body of Christ to come together in fellowship - a place where those who worship the Lord Jesus Christ can share in their love for God.


Cults, the False Church, and Heresy


13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:

14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Matthew 7:13-15 (KJV)


For those involved in cults and the false church, such as Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, and others, we pray that this site will lead you to the Truth, that Jesus is the incarnate God, and salvation comes through Him, and only Him. If this applies to you, we would be glad to help find somebody to pray with you, and help you discover the Truth available through the Holy Spirit, and God's inerrant Word, the Bible. We are not called to unity in Christ at the expense of false doctrine or luke-warm faith, but rather, we are called to unity in Christ on matters of essential Christian doctrine. This unity acknowledges that brothers and sisters in the Lord are united through core beliefs like the deity of Christ Jesus, Salvation by grace, and belief in the Trinity, even though we may differ on issues like perseverance of the saints, limited atonement, and dispensationalism.

Below we have listed some "denominations" and "belief systems" that are clearly outside of the mainstream Christian church, and comprise the "false church", or world of the cults. We pray that those involved in these organizations come to know the Lord Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior. The list is by no means exhaustive. Please consult your Christian bookstore for more information on cults and the false church. For convenience, we are making some books available, through Amazon.com, on cults and the false Church. We also have a section on cults and false doctrine, which provides additional information:

Cults - Additional info on cults



Please visit a Christian bookstore, or visit our online bookstore for further information on cults, the false church, and heretical belief systems. There is nothing more important than understanding the nature and character of God, and making Jesus Christ the Lord of your life.






Benediction:


Heavenly Father, we thank You and praise You for giving us this opportunity to use the Internet to spread Your Word. We pray that this service brings many souls to salvation through Your Son, Jesus Christ. Give us the strength and wisdom to spread the Gospel to a changing world. Although the world is changing, Your Word remains the same, so we ask for Your guidance in spreading the Word in the Spirit of Truth. Teach us new ways to shine the light of Your Word on a darkened world, and give us the strength we need to overcome our obstacles.

We pray for unity in the Christian community, and that we come together as one Body of Christ. Give us the wisdom we need to help unite the Church, and bring us together in matters of essential Christian doctrine. Teach us how to discuss our doctrinal differences, and still be united as the Body of Christ on matters of essential Truth. Help us to witness in Truth to those that are being deceived by the false gospels of the enemy. Help us to reach out in love to those caught up in cults and the false church, and bring them into Your light.

We praise You Father for showing us Your ways, and giving us Your Son and Your Spirit to light up our lives. We ask this in the name of Your Son Jesus. Amen.




Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.
Jeremiah 15:16 (KJV)




If YOU have not yet asked the Lord into your life, and are looking for a new beginning, then there is no better time to start than now. Regardless of whether you believe in God, God believes in you, and loves you. He wants to give you a new life, a better life, and of course, an eternal life. He also wants to have a personal relationship with you... and He provided a way to bring you to Him, through His Son, Jesus Christ. All He asks in return is that you place your faith in Jesus Christ as the Lord and Saviour of your life.

If you would like to know the God of the Bible, we encourage you to visit a good Bible believing Church for directions to a new life. To grow in the grace and knowledge of the Lord, it is vital that you get into fellowship with other believers, and start attending a good Church - and of course, spend some time, every day, in prayer and study of God's Word, the Bible.

You can start your walk with God right now, by reading a prayer offered by Jesus to His Father. He was teaching us how to pray, so this is a good passage to study, in prayer, about prayer. The Matthew 6:9-13 passage is commonly referred to as the Lord's Prayer, and is highlighted in red. Like most passages in our web site, we try to include extra verses around the highlighted verses, to encourage studying verses in context of a larger passage... and to build interest in deeper Bible study by our readers.

God bless you,
Job.

1 Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
2 Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
3 But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
4 That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
7 But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
8 Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.
9 After this manner therefore pray ye:

     Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you:
15 But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
16 Moreover when ye fast, be not, as the hypocrites, of a sad countenance: for they disfigure their faces, that they may appear unto men to fast. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
17 But thou, when thou fastest, anoint thine head, and wash thy face;
18 That thou appear not unto men to fast, but unto thy Father which is in secret: and thy Father, which seeth in secret, shall reward thee openly.
19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV)
