WELCOME HERE FRIENDS!   It is hoped you will find this site to be 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.  Serious seekers after church testimony might well see Christian Assembly page: F4.    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.
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


Though all the beasts that lived and feed
Upon a thousand hills should bleed ---
Though all their blood should flow,
The sacrifice would be in vain,
The stain of sin would still remain;
Sin is not cancelled so.

"A better sacrifice" than these
It needs, the conscience to appease
Or satisfy the Lord;
No blood hath virtue to atone
For man's offence, but His alone
Whose title is "The Word".

His who could say, Himself the Son
"My Father and Myself are one,"
Who made the world around;
His, who Jehovah's Fellow stood
And claimed equality with God,
Whose glory knows no bounds.

Jesus the Christ, on earth His name,
He came ---in love to sinners came ---
And bowed His head and died;
A full atonement is made,
The ransom, by His death, is paid,
And justice satisfied.

That sinners draw near to Him
God planned the great, this gracious scheme,
And found the ransom too;
Let all His saints their voices raise,
And sing the great Redeemer's praise
While endless ages flow.

Little Flock Hymn -
T. Kelly 1769 - 1855



Let all who know the joyful sound,
With gladsome send the tidings round,
And tell that God is love;
That God so loved the world He gave
His own dear Son the world to save;
God's message from above.

That all who in the Son believe,
Shall never perish, but receive
Life endless and divine;
No condemnation e'er shall know,
From death to life they pass below,
And then in glory shine.

'Tis not of works; let no man boast,
 Save in His Name who saves the lost ---
The Lord our righteousness!
Poor sinner, now from working cease,
And claim from God a blood-bought peace,
And Jesus, Lord confess.

Let all who know our God rejoice,
Praise Him in songs with cheerful voice,
And live to Him alone;
Let sinners too take up the strain,
Exalt the Lamb for sinner's slain,
The coming Savior own.

The Spirit and the bride say, Come!
Let him that heareth too say come!
Whoever thirsts may come;
Water of life is freely given
Till Christ the Lord descends from heaven;
Lord Jesus, quickly come!
