The Way of the Kingdom: Parables of the Bible

“Remember What?”

 

Joshua 3:17-4:7

17 Now the priests bearing the ark of the covenant of the Lord stood firmly on dry ground in the midst of the Jordan, and all Israel was passing over on dry ground until all the nation finished passing over the Jordan.

 

4 When all the nation had finished passing over the Jordan, the Lord said to Joshua, 2 “Take twelve men from the people, from each tribe a man, 3 and command them, saying, ‘Take twelve stones from here out of the midst of the Jordan, from the very place where the priests' feet stood firmly, and bring them over with you and lay them down in the place where you lodge tonight.’” 4 Then Joshua called the twelve men from the people of Israel, whom he had appointed, a man from each tribe. 5 And Joshua said to them, “Pass on before the ark of the Lord your God into the midst of the Jordan, and take up each of you a stone upon his shoulder, according to the number of the tribes of the people of Israel, 6 that this may be a sign among you. When your children ask in time to come, ‘What do those stones mean to you?’ 7 then you shall tell them that the waters of the Jordan were cut off before the ark of the covenant of the Lord. When it passed over the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan were cut off. So these stones shall be to the people of Israel a memorial forever.”

Our Core Values

We are committed to clear Biblical teaching and preaching..."All scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work" 2 Timothy 3:16-17


We are committed to living in community "....so that they may be one as we are one." John 17:11 "All the believers were together and had every thing in common...meet together ... broke bread and ate together in their homes with glad and sincere hearts, praising God..." Acts 2:43-47


Purposeful care for our community… "Only, they asked to remember the poor, the very thing I was eager to do." Galatians 2:10


Our Beliefs

As a church in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church, we hold to the “Seven Essentials of the Faith” : We believe in one God, existing in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.   Jesus Christ, the living Word, became flesh through His miraculous conception by the Holy Spirit and His virgin birth.   The Holy Spirit has come to glorify Christ and to apply the saving work of Christ to our hearts.   Being estranged from God and condemned by our sinfulness, our salvation is wholly dependent upon the work of God’s free grace.   The true Church is composed of all persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit are united together in the body of Christ.   Jesus Christ will come again to the earth personally, visibly, and bodily—to judge the living and the dead, and to consummate history and the eternal plan of God.  The Lord Jesus Christ commands all believers to proclaim the gospel throughout the world and to make disciples of all nations. All are welcome to join us for worship, whether they affirm these seven essentials or not.
