WELCOME HERE FRIENDS!   It is hoped you will find this site to be very helpful.  All questions and comments are welcome and held confidential (e-mail:    This web site is non-sectarian ministry to encourage the reading of God's Word, and for serious seeking after truth.  It values God's work of revival in the early 1800's, with which it is associated, and urges readers to learn about it (see Church Truth page and Feature pages above). It is always the desire and hope here to obey and honor our Lord, and encourage and seek the spiritual welfare of all people.  WE NEED TO SERVE AS  "ONE BODY" IN  CHRIST in the world (note 1 Cor. 12:25)!   No thought here is to condemn personal faith,  for each  one must look to God in their personal life, but  this speaks to the ESSENCE of  biblical  Christianity, which is BIBLE ONLY, apart from man's reasonings and innovations;  and  addresses  Redemption WayChurch TruthSpiritual Life;  and  Bible overview to maintain the balance in the faith.  It is what God has intended for  His collective testimony in this world.  We need "all the counsel of God" as God enjoins us,  and we need to encourage all souls to embrace all these things.

Everyone may participate in the ministry of this web site, by telling their friends to visit here. We hope all will find some ministry to help, and perhaps a nice challenge for their faith. Surely "the time is short", as God says, and surely we need to also "be about (our) Father's business".  See the message and testimony at Site Manager Page.  The writer does not have all answers, but will be glad to share what has been learned over many years.  Questions and contrary views in a helpful way are appreciated.
Papers and comments here are changed periodically, and are personal convictions.  Serious seekers after church testimony might well see Christian Assembly pages: F4 & F5.    There are many pages for help and encouragement --- SEE INDEX ABOVE FOR A BIBLE STUDY --F8.   The manager may not have answers for all questions, but is glad to share what he has and be of some help. He is not perfect and revisions and updates seem needed at times to clarify thoughts, so one might note the revision date on any papers they wish to copy.  Any copies made should not be altered or taken out of context.

A true and faithful believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, will walk with Him and talk with Him daily, until that day when one can see Him and be with Him forever in the Father's house in Heaven.  - RLD, 12/2009

[There are many verses in the Word of God speaking about knowing and growing in the Lord (note 2 Thess. 1:2-5), and we might consider several things one can do to embrace that  spiritual life. --RLD]

1. BELIEVING: "Without faith it is impossible to please Him; for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder to them that diligently seek Him" (Heb. 11:6); "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth (continues) in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16); "God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He that hath the Son hath life, and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life" (1 Jn. 5:11-12). This kind of belief in God speaks of faith in "the Christ of God" (Luke 9:20), and such depth of soul is ESSENTIAL TO KNOW GOD. 

2. OBEYING: "If a man love Me, he will keep My Words" (John 14:23); "all the counsel of God" (Acts 20:27); "rightly dividing the Word of Truth" (2 Tim. 2:15);
"Holding fast" (Titus 1:9); "not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together" (Heb.    

3. WORSHIPPING: "My son, give Me thine heart, and let thine eyes observe My ways" (Prov. 23:26); "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee;" (Isa.26:3);  "The hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in Spirit and in truth; for the Father seeketh such to worship Him" (John 4:23); "where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst" (Matt.18:20); "for as often as ye eat this bread and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till He come" (1 Cor.11:26).  THIS IS DEVOTION BY COM-MUNION AND NOT JUST CEREMONY. 

4. TRUSTING: "Bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ" (2 Cor.10:5);  "In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of Him" (Eph. 3:12);  "Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But 
let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing" (James 1:3-4). THIS IS WISDOM AND PERSEVERANCE.  

5. YIELDING:  "Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are?" (Rom.6:16);  "Submit yourselves therefore to God" (James 4:7-10). THIS IS A RIGHT SPIRIT. 

6. WITNESSING: "Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven" (Matt.5:14-15);  "How shall they hear without a preacher?" (Rom.10:14). 

7. RESTING: "Come unto Me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls" (Matt.11: 28-29); "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you; not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid" (John 14:27). "There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God did from His." (Heb.4:9-10). THIS IS SETTLED PEACE.
