Proverbs 14: 17: He that is soon angry dealeth foolishly: and a man of wicked devices is hated.




After service Sunday, February 9, we will plan to baptize Matt Alcazar.  We thank the Lord for calling Matt.  If anyone else would like to confess faith in the Lord Jesus Christ through baptism let me know.



Baptism is the believer’s public confession of faith in Christ. By our immersion (burial) in the watery grave and rising up from the waters of baptism, we symbolically fulfill all righteousness. By this symbolic ordinance, the heaven born soul says to all the world, “I lived in obedience to God in Christ. I died with Christ. And I am risen with Christ. Christ is all my righteousness.” If God has given you faith in his dear Son, you should confess him in believer’s baptism as soon as possible.  Pastor Don Fortner




The robe that God provided Adam was an effectual covering, BECAUSE He provided it. The robe that Adam provided for himself was ineffectual, because he provided it. Now Adam clothed with God’s coat was a safer person outside the fence of paradise than he had been inside. Why? For within, his dependence was upon himself, whereas outside his life dependence was on another, even the promised Saviour.

 “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.” (1Co 13:1-3)


Any sinner can see our doctrine is in the Bible.  He can give mental assent and profess to believe, even appear to have all faith.  Before men he may preach or make great sacrifices which appear to be for the cause of Christ and the furtherance of the gospel.  But if God has not created love in his heart then everything he does is profitless because it is from an impure motive.  Any sinner can do those things.  But only God can give love in the heart.  Motive is the all-important matter with God.  God only accepts that which is produced from the motive of love from the heart because “…The LORD seeth not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart” (1 Sa 16: 7).


Love Your Family in Christ

“Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous:  Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing” (1 Peter 3:8-9).


1 Peter 3:8 says, “Love as brethren.” This would be to love all believers, to love as Christ loved us, to love without hypocrisy, to love, not in word only, but in both deed and truth, and to love continually; for true love never dies!


How will this love be expressed? In praying for one another, in forgiving one another, in sharing with one another both temporal and spiritual blessings, and in seeking out one another for fellowship and encouragement. Don’t wait for a brother to come to you; go to him.

            Happiness, contentment, joy, rest and peace surely are sweet words, and things which all men and women desire and seek after to some degree.  It is amazing how Satan, through the deceitfulness of sin, keeps men and women pursuing vanities and lies in their quest for these coveted qualities of life; and thinking them to always lie just ahead…a few more years…just a little longer now, etc.


            Many young folk expect to find this quality of life merely by growing up and becoming their own bosses.  Many parents expect to find it when their children are grown up, settled and provided for.  Many businessmen expect to find it when they can retire and travel, fish, hunt, etc.  The inordinately ambitious man expects to find it when he has gained power and reputation.  The covetous man expects to find it by gaining enough money to satisfy his greed.  The lover of pleasures expects to find it when he has experienced his fill of earthly games and entertainments.  The sickly man expects to find it when his health improves.  The student expects to find it when he has acquired more diplomas.  The religious man expects to find it in his own righteousness.  It is just ahead…just around the next corner…I’ll be there soon…but they never make it! 


            The believing sinner, regardless of vocation, social status or circumstances, has found the only source of true and lasting contentment, rest, peace, joy and happiness.  Personal faith in the Sovereign Redeemer is the only source.  Augustine said long ago, “The soul of man will never rest till it comes to rest in Him who made it.”  Our Lord said, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”; meaning houses, land, food, clothing, etc. (See Matthew 6:25-34).                                        Pastor Maurice Montgomery
