This website has been designed to be a tool for discipleship, seeking to highlight the sanctification [growth] process to which every “born again” believer should aspire. “Salvation is the miracle of a moment; sanctification is the process of a lifetime.” Salvation is more than fire insurance; we are saved to grow and serve. The second birth is what you get from God when you repent and trust Christ with your soul; sanctification concerns what God gets from you when you learn to trust Him with your life.
The purpose of this website is to reveal, through an in-depth study of the “fundamental doctrines” of God’s word, the underlying principles of sanctification. The spiritual vision necessary to “grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ…” (2 Peter 3:18).
To this end the site has two primary areas of study: First, listed on the right sidebar of the Welcome page you will find 12 topics (to be uploaded shortly) under the header “Learning the Bible.” The subjects listed are the basics; “the milk of the word” foundational building blocks of sound doctrine. The second section found under “Living the Bible” lists 10 topics which delve deeper; subjects which the Bible refers to as “strong meat.” These subjects provide the “spiritual understanding” necessary to put off the “old man” and put on the “new man” so as to “…walk in newness of life” (Rom. 6:4) to the glory of God.
In addition, on the main menu bar (top of the page) under the heading “Articles”, you can access various articles covering additional subjects which play an important role in the spiritual development of the believer.
Our Mission is summed up in Ephesians 4:11-15:
11“And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ.”
The above verses state the purpose and goals of spiritual mentorship, providing both exhortation and explanation concerning the development of Christ-like character: “Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect [mature] man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ…”, “…a vessel unto honour, sanctified, and meet for the master’s use” (2 Tim. 2:21).
We believe, the larger part of contemporary Christianity, in these last days, to be guilty of neglect concerning the “perfecting of the saints” leaving the multitude of God’s people unlearned and unguarded,“ tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine…”
Satan’s first and foremost strategy is deception; the word of God warns that in the end times, “…evil men and seducers shall wax [grow] worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.” (2 Tim.3:13) [Emphasis mine].
Today, as the relentless encroachment of secular humanism, progressivism, godless philosophy and Darwinism is destroying the moral foundation of America, likewise, the subversive doctrines of liberal theology have led to a culture of compromise and doctrinal corruption. The modern Church has incrementally surrendered to the ever-increasing influence of a self-absorbed, depraved “politically correct” society. All of which has led to a “Crossless Christianity”…compatible with modern culture.
In reality, we are living in a post-Christian era…the Church has drifted far from its biblical roots, away from the fundamental doctrines which are vital to its effectiveness and spiritual well-being. As prophesied, this progressive, malignant worldly influence has today reached its pinnacle, “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” (2 Tim.3:1). “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine…” (2 Tim.4:3). The hour is late…the time is upon us.
We are advocating a return to “Biblical Christianity”…the time-honored fundamentals of the faith, stressing the indispensable principle of “rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Tim. 2:15). We believe in “One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God” and one Bible. We hold to the pure word of God (providentially inspired and preserved) in the King James Bible, not man, to be the final authority in all matters of faith, doctrine, and practice.
In every generation, “The Lord knoweth them that are his.” During times of spiritual darkness, God always has a “remnant.” Those who seek to know and live the truth regardless of the cost…the steadfast who refuse to compromise their convictions. Our intention is to equip those who understand the times in which we live; to encourage the faithful who grasp the significance of the current cultural crisis and consequent decline of sound biblical teaching, to hold fast the “…old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls”. (Jerm.6:16).
“He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.” (Matt.11:15) “And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it…” (Isa. 30:21).
