Sundays 7:00 am Channel 27 WKYT
It is requested that all children under the age of five stay in our nursery
so there will be no distractions during the preaching of the Gospel.

Precious is the name of Jesus
Who can half its worth unfold?
Far beyond angelic praises
Sweetly sung to harps of gold.
Precious when to Calvary groaning
He sustained the cursed tree
Precious when His death atoning
Made an end of sin for me!

Precious when the bloody scourges
Caused the sacred drops to roll
Precious when of wrath the surges
Overwhelmed His Holy Soul.
Precious is His death victorious
He the host of hell o’er throes
In His resurrection glorious
Victor crowned o’er all His foes.

Precious, Lord, beyond expressing
Are Thy beauties all divine
Glory, honour, power, and blessing
Be henceforth forever Thine.
Soon in glory, we shall see Thee
Clothed in garment, spotless white
Ever living in Thy presence
Of the Lamb who is the light.

(Tune: “Come Thou Fount” p. 17)

“The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth to counsel is wise.” - Proverbs 12:15

I STAND IN DOUBT OF YOU


When Paul said to the Galatians, “I stand in doubt of you” (Galatians 14:20); why did he say it? Was it because of their worldliness or immaturity? While those things are not good, this is not what he said made him to stand in doubt of them. He said in the next verse, “Tell me, ye that desire to be under the law, do ye not hear the law?” (Galatians 4:21) A desire to be under the law betrays a complete ignorance of the law, the purpose of the law, and an ignorance of our own personal sinfulness. When Christ has been formed in a man, He desires to be under grace, and not under the law. It is the absence of grace in the heart that makes a man desire to be under law.

“HOLY AND REVEREND IS HIS NAME”


The third commandment “Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh His name in vain” is a reminder to us of the awesome majesty and holiness of God. God is absolutely just. He would never punish more severely then the crime deserves. And such is His majesty that to speak His name in a casual, flippant, irreverent, conversational way is a crime that merits eternal punishment. What an awesome, majestic, glorious, holy God He is. “Holy and Reverend is His name.” (Psalms 111:9)

It was to SAVE sinners that Christ Jesus came into the world. He did not come to help them save themselves, nor to induce them to save themselves, nor even to enable them to save themselves. He came to SAVE THEM! - William Hendriksen

The sooner we quit seeking our own glory, the sooner we shall see Christ’s glory. The sooner we quit looking at our righteousness, the sooner we shall see Christ’s righteousness. The sooner we cease from our labors to earn blessings from God, the sooner we can enter His rest.
- Pastor Joe Terrell


As long as we are in this flesh, we will have misunderstandings among us, unpleasantness’s, and even injustices (we will feel that our rights have been violated and other have been wrong in what they have said and done.) What is to be our attitude? It is to be twofold: “FOREBEARING one another and FORGIVING one another.” To FOREBEAR is to control our emotions, surrendering our rights for the time being in patient hope that God will reveal His purpose and will. To FORGIVE is actually to put the misunderstanding out of mind and restore a state of love and fellowship. Our Lord FOREBEARS, that is, He is longsuffering and patient with us; and He FORGIVES, remembering our sins no more. – Pastor Henry Mahan

Every heresy, if brought to the touchstone, will discover itself here. I have my own private opinion that there is no such thing as preaching Christ and Him crucified, unless we preach what nowadays is called Calvinism. It is a nickname to call it Calvinism; Calvinism is the Gospel, and nothing else. I do not believe we can preach the Gospel if we do not preach justification by faith, without works; nor unless we preach the sovereignty of God in His dispensation of grace; nor unless we exalt the electing, unchangeable, eternal, immutable, conquering love of Jehovah; nor do I think we can preach the Gospel unless we base it upon the special and particular redemption of His elect and chosen people which Christ wrought out upon the cross; nor can I comprehend a gospel which lets saints fall away after they are called, and suffers the children of God to be burned in the fires of damnation after having once believed in Jesus. Such a gospel I abhor. – C. H. Spurgeon
