"God is a spirit; and they who worship him must worship him in spirit and truth."

John 4:24

 

A Message for today

God hath given thee all them that sail with thee. Acts 27: 24.


Who else was on board the ship on the voyage to Rome with the apostle Paul? We might be tempted to say that the Roman centurion Julius was sailing with a number of prisoners, Paul among them. Or we might speak of a ship of Alexandria with a crew and cargo and a sizeable number of passengers on board, one of whom was the apostle Paul.

God described the situation differently. He did not see Paul as accompanying Julius or the crew; they were sailing with Paul. On board that ship there were indeed 276 persons, but for God His servant Paul was the central figure (though Luke and other believers were with him, too). It all depends on the point of view from which the matter is regarded. Do we see things as God does, or do we regard them as natural man does? Astronomers consider the earth a relatively insignificant planet within the whole solar system. There are planets, Jupiter for example, that dwarf the earth completely. Yet for God the earth is the most important object in the world of the stars. There He placed man as the crown of His creation. And one other thing concerning the earth surpasses all else: here the Son of God dwelt for a time and died to redeem fallen man.

Just as all of Paul’s fellow passengers survived the shipwreck on that occasion and reached their destination, so, too, today, in a spiritual sense, all who “sail with Paul”, i.e. receive the gospel that he preached, will be saved for eternity and attain the glory of God. That shows us how important was the message that God entrusted to His servant Paul.

Statement of faith

 

The Evangelical Baptist Church accepts the Niceno-Constantinopolitan Creed, without the Filioque clause of the Western Church, as a concise, but complete, statement of the main tenets of Christianity, and as derived from the Holy Scriptures. Every other Statement of Faith and Practice is only a further development and interpretation of these tenets, or a reference to particular subjects, which could not be included in a Creed as synoptic as this.

What we believe :

About the Scriptures
About the True God
About the Holy Spirit
About Jesus Christ
About atonement
About the grace of God
About the Church
About baptism and the Lord's Supper
About the bodily Resurrection of Christ and His Second Coming
