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.

HYMN OF THE DAY
Revive Thy Work, O Lord
Thy mighty arm make bare
Speak with the voice that wakes the dead
And make Thy people hear.

Revive Thy Work, O Lord
Create soul-thirst for Thee
And hungering for the Bread of Life
Oh may our spirits be.

Revive Thy Work, O Lord
Exalt Thy precious Name
And by Thy Holy Ghost Divine
Our love for Thee enflame.

Revive Thy Work, O Lord
And give refreshing showers
The glory shall be Thine alone
The blessings, Lord, be ours.

(Tune: “Blest be the Tie” p. 187)

“Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.” – Proverbs 23:4


If I do not have a right understanding of what took place in the Garden of Eden when Adam ate of the forbidden fruit, I will not have a right understanding of anything else. I will not understand what sin is, and I will not understand my need of Christ and His grace. I will not understand what He was doing on the cross, nor will I understand the Spirit’s work in the New Birth. I will not understand my need of election or union with Christ. I will not understand sanctification or growing in grace. I will not understand justification or representation. As somebody once said, “Wrong on the fall, wrong on it all.” And this is more than giving assent to the fact that the Bible teaches all men died when Adam ate of the fruit. I really believe that I am totally depraved and have nowhere to look but Christ alone!



“Oh how great is Thy goodness, which Thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which Thou hast wrought for them that trust in Thee before the sons of men!” – Psalm 31:19 My faith is not saving faith if men never see or hear that I trust Christ alone. I want men to see my faith by how I conduct myself. And I want men to see my faith by the Gospel I preach to them, that will leave them knowing that the only hope I have is Christ alone: nothing more, nothing less, and nothing else. They will conclude this from what they hear me say regarding the work of the Father in election, the work of the Son in redemption, and the work of the Spirit in regeneration. A faith that never comes out before men is not saving faith.


A local church is a body of brothers and sisters in Christ. We are one family. One life is ours, one love is ours, and one objective (to know more of and to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and to be found in His righteousness) is ours. That is the comfort and strength of all, that we are all one with Christ in God’s sight. We cannot properly minister the Gospel of Christ without each other. One cannot say, “My presence or absence will not be noticed because I don’t preach, teach, pray publicly nor lead the singing.” Your presence in the house of God to worship Him is both desired and much needed. You are a comfort and encouragement to other brethren. Another cannot say, “My gift will not be missed because I cannot give as much as some.” All of God’s people should give whenever and whatever they can give as the Lord blesses them. No gift is too small. What may seem small is great for the cause of Christ. The point is: We are a family, a body, and the eye cannot say to the hand, “I have no need of you.” All brethren are equally loved of God and equally needed by one another. – Henry Mahan


Scott Richardson’s Last Public Comments
During the last public worship service he was able to attend (the Wednesday before the Lord called him to glory) our dear friend, Pastor Scott Richardson, read the following to the saints at Fairmont, WV, whom he served faithfully for over 50 years.
“I’ve come across something that helped me and I want to pass it on to you. We understand more about what heaven is and will be to us, by what it is not, and will not be. There’ll be no more sin.
No more darkness. No more pain.
No more sorrow. No more jails.
No more crying. No more war.
No more sickness. No more heartache.
No more dying in a ditch. No more fear.
No more confusion. No more lacking anything.
No more vanity. No more waiting.
No more going astray. No more crooked roads.
No more reproach. No more affliction.
No more darkness. No more trouble.
No more curse. No more dishonoring God.
Our name will no more be called Jacob. We’ll be the children of the living God.”
Then Brother Scott Read Revelation 22:3-5 – “And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and His servants shall serve Him: And they shall see His face; and His name shall be in their foreheads. And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.” Then he said, “And no more birthdays.”

When I hear it said, “Such and such do not believe the doctrines of sovereign grace and substitution, but they love the Lord and are saved,” I wonder and ask, “What then was the Bible written for?” Is it no infallible expression of the mind of GOD? Is it no standard of Truth? Are we to believe what appeals to us and deny the rest? God forbid! God’s Word declares the oneness of Truth and condemns every departure from the Truth as a direct attack on God Himself! Do not tell me that a man’s heart is right with God when his head contains a creed of error and denies the Person and Work of the Redeemer. - Horatius Bonar
