Homesick

Psalm 84:2–4

My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young – a place near your altar, O Lord Almighty, my King and my God. Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you.     NIV

     Every human soul longs for one thing, a home. A homeless person is an unhappy person. The psalmist cries out in agony in a sense of loneliness, a sense of being cut off. He says, “Lord, even the sparrow’s found a home, the swallow a nest for herself. I need a home too.” He says, “They found a place near Your altar” and that’s where the home of the soul is. Even though we may not have much of a home in this world, there’s a home for the soul, a place where the soul belongs, a place where it finds rest and ease and peace, where it’s at home, a place near God’s altar. The altar is the place of yielding, sacrifice, dedication, self-surrender, and when our soul comes to that place, it’s come home.

     There is a beautiful homecoming for each soul that will turn from sin and rebellion, turn back to God and come to the place near the altar.

About

Section 4.1      The Scriptures:  We believe that all of Scripture (i.e. Old and New Testament) is inspired by God, and is our final authority in all matters pertaining to doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness. (II Timothy 3:16-17)

Section 4.2      God:  We believe in only one true God; One in essence, nature, and attributes, but existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Jesus Christ, who is God manifest in the flesh, is the second member of the Godhead, co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. (I John 5:7, John 1:1, 14)

Section 4.3      Jesus Christ: We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, of His shed blood on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins, of His bodily resurrection and ascension to the Father’s right hand.  We do not believe that He is a way to the Father, but rather the only way through which we can receive righteousness, regeneration, sanctification, and glorification.  He is, in fact, our salvation. (I Corinthians 1:30-31)

Section 4.4      The Ordinances of the Church:

Baptism: We believe immersion in water in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  The candidate must first have repented and believe. Believers are only to be baptized. Baptism pictures the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ and of the believer in fellowship with Him (Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:15; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38).

Communion: We believe Communion was commanded by our Lord.  This holy ordinance symbolized the broken body and the shed blood of our Lord, our participation in the benefits of His atoning death, and the covenant which He sealed with His own blood.  It represents our union with Him, who is the sustenance of our spiritual life.  It is a memorial of His death and looks forward to His coming again (Matthew 26:26-28; I Corinthians 11:27-29). 

Section 4.5     Holy Spirit: We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit, expressed with the evidences’ (gifts and fruits) of the Holy Spirit. We believe that spiritual gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit are for the common good and building up of others.  We believe this experience is distinct from, and subsequent to, the new birth, and can be received by faith (Matthew 3:11; Acts 1:8; 2:4; 9:17; 10:44-46; 11:15; 16; 19:2;   I Corinthians 12, 13 & 14; Galatians5:22-23; 3:2).

Section 4.6     Man:  We believe that man was created innocent, but through Adam’s transgression, sin came upon all men, and all men have sinned.  The penalty for sin is death, or stated another way, eternal separation from God (Romans 3:23; 5:12; 6:23).

Section 4.7     Salvation:  We believe that Jesus Christ came to pay the penalty for man’s sin (through His shed blood), so that all men who, in repentance and faith, receive the Lord Jesus as Savior and Lord are saved.  Salvation is by grace through faith (Acts 20:20-21; Romans 10:9-10; I Corinthians 15:3-4; Ephesians 2:8; Hebrews 9:11-12).

Section 4.8     Healing:  We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross has provided healing for the human body (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; I Peter 2:24).

Section 4.9     The Resurrection:  We believe in the resurrection of the just and of the unjust; the just to everlasting life and the unjust to everlasting damnation (Matthew 25:46; Revelation 20:11-15; 21:1-8).

Section 4.10   The Second Coming:  We believe in a literal, physical second return of the Lord Jesus Christ (I Thessalonians 1:10; 4:16-17).

Section 4.11   The Church:  We believe that the universal church is comprised of all true believers who have received salvation through Christ.  We also believe in and encourage fellowship with a local church (Ephesians 1:22-23; Hebrews 10:25).
