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.  No thought here is to condemn personal faith, for each one must look to God in their personal life, but  this speaks to spiritual life and the holy gospel truth by Bible-only;   and what God has intended for His collective testimony in this world.  We need "all the counsel of God". 

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 page: F4.    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 (set your print margins at .25). 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.  - RLD, 12/09


"...he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently 
seek Him" (Heb.11:6)

God has a master plan over all with a purpose, a process, and provision for life. We ought to know this, and we can see much of the plan if we value and read His Word. To understand anything of the mind of God and His marvelous plan, one must first know that God is eternal and "there is none else" (Isa. 45:22). He is love; He is just; and He has communicated with us through the Holy Bible so that we might know Him (Psa.90:2; Psa.119:105; Matt.4:4; I John 4:9). Of Himself we read: "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty" (Rev.1:8). If we miss this foundation we are left to wander and wonder, and we may never know or appreciate the plan and enjoy the benefits of it.

Some people believe one thing and some believe another concerning life, death, and eternity. Some people believe that religious works has the answers, and some believe science is our hope. Some people believe life just happened and death is the end, and some don't know what to believe. Here is essentially what we find in the Holy Bible, which God declares to be His Word, and for those of us who have received it we have found a very real blessing:  
[Visit Page F1  herein for the full message of this wondrous Plan ---]  

Ere God had built the mountains, or raised the fruitful hills;
Before He filled the fountains that feed the running rills;
In Thee, from everlasting, the wonderful I AM
Found pleasures never wasting, and Wisdom is Thy name.

When, like a tent to dwell in, He spread the skies abroad,
And swathed about the swelling of ocean's mighty flood,
He wrought by weight and measure: and Thou wast with Him then:
Thyself the Father's pleasure, and Thine, the sons of men.

And couldst Thou be delighted with creatures such as we,
Who, when we saw Thee, slighted and nailed Thee to a tree?
Unfathomable wonder!  and mystery divine!
The voice that speaks in thunder says, I am thine!


William Cowper
1731 - 1800 AD
