I write these things to you about those who are trying to deceive you. But the anointing that you received from him abides in you, and you have no need that anyone should teach you. But as his anointing teaches you about everything, and is true, and is no lie—just as it has taught you, […]
a refreshing return to Christ-centered, fellowship-driven simplicity. we are a Reformed Baptist church with family-integrated worship.
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
God Is Holy and Sovereign
We were created by a personal God to love, serve, and enjoy endless fellowship with him. It was Jesus himself who created everything (Jn 1:3; Col 1:16). He also owns and rules everything (Ps 103:19). He has authority over our lives and we owe him absolute allegiance, obedience, and worship. He is perfectly holy (Isa 6:3).
Mankind Is Sinful and Guilty
Everyone is guilty of sin: "There is no man who does not sin" (1Ki 8:46). We're utterly incapable of understanding, loving, or pleasing God on our own (Ro 3:10-12). God's holiness and justice demand that all sin be punished by death (Eze 18:4). Simply changing our patterns of behavior can't eliminate its consequences.
Jesus Is Lord and Savior
Even though God's justice demands death for sin, his love has provided a Savior who paid the penalty and died for sinners (1Pe 3:18). Christ's death satisfied the demands of God's justice, and his perfect life satisfied the demands of God's holiness (2Co 5:21), enabling him to forgive and save those who have faith in him (Ro 3:26).

“Preach the word; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.”
Children, it is the last hour, and as you have heard that antichrist is coming, so now many antichrists have come. Therefore we know that it is the last hour. They went out from us, but they were not of us; for if they had been of us, they would have continued with us. But […]
Love and hate have a closer relationship than many of us may realize. Because I love my wife and daughter, I hate anything that threatens to harm them. Because I love the truth, I hate error. Hate is never far from love since it’s the opposite side of the same coin. The more you love […]
The reader of John’s first epistle may find himself growing increasingly uncomfortable as he continues his study and meditation of this book. The apostle’s conditional statements are numerous and stark. For example, if we say we have fellowship with God while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth (1Jn 1:6). […]
