Basic Christian Experience:
Much of what one will find at this site is that which concerns basic Christian experience ---Redemption Way, Church Truth, and Spiritual Life, though other ministry is available. It is hoped one will seek after the scriptural path, rather than what pleases the flesh.
1) This first truth speaks about God's plan and purpose, sacrifice, salvation of our soul, hope, the Lord's reign and glory, and assurance of His care and love for all eternity, etc.;
2) The second truth sets forth God's expectations for our walk in this world, collective worship, His testimony in unity, the real gospel message, and honor to Him and obediance to His Word, etc.;
3) The third truth is about devotion, serving, growing or maturing in the Christian faith.
General ministry on Christianity is also added. Each one of these should be studied for our good, and when you have questions please feel free to write here. We can look at the Word of God together which is our only authority under God. See also Index above!
WELCOME HERE FRIENDS! It is hoped you will find this site very helpful. All questions and comments are welcome and held confidential. 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 speaks to spiritual and gospel truth, and what the collective testimony ought to be in this world.
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. There are many pages for help and encouragement. 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.

FIT FOR HEAVEN
Vain is the thought of man
To merit heaven by prayer;
'Tis only Jesus' precious blood
Can give admission there.
Could ceaseless prayers ascend,
Could tears for ever flow;
The soul were still unblest, unsaved,
And peace could never know.
But faith's one look at Christ
Expiring on the tree ---
One heart-believing glance at Him,
Can set the sinner free.
None can, without the blood
Of Jesus, be forgiven;
'Tis resting on the blood alone
That fits the soul for heaven.
(Ref. 1 Jn. 5:10-12)

The Gift Of God
Oh what a gift the Father gave
When He bestowed His Son!
To save poor ruined, guilty man,
By sin defiled, undone.
For I was lost and vile indeed!
To sin a willing prey,
Till God in mercy interposed,
And turned my night to day.
Now I can call the Savior mine,
Though all unworthy still;
I'm sheltered by His precious blood,
Beyond the reach of ill.
Come, all who trust in Jesus now,
And tell our joys abroad;
Let thankful hymns of praise ascend
For Christ the gift of God.
