A Message for today

He hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead. Acts 17:31.

Paul at Athens (7)


God commands all to repent, so that they can be spared His righteous judgment. For the Greeks no righteousness reigned in the world of their gods. Their religion offered no possibility of atonement or forgiveness for all their sins and unrighteousness. So Paul presented the Savior, Jesus Christ, the risen Lord, albeit with the warning that rejection of Him meant a confrontation with Him as Judge. Nobody can pass by Jesus Christ!

Paul didn’t base his argument on his own ideas but on definite facts: Jesus Christ rose again! Over five hundred eyewitnesses had seen Him after His resurrection, most of whom were still alive and could be asked (cf. 1 Corinthians 15:3-8). Moreover, even the enemies of Christ, who would have given anything to prove this to be untrue, were unable to undertake anything to counter the proclamation of His resurrection. Fifty days after the Lord’s resurrection, and ten days after His ascension to heaven, the disciples, filled with the Holy Spirit, began testifying publicly. They had abandoned the Lord in fear when He was taken captive. His death had discouraged them. But His resurrection made them brave witnesses, whose testimony led thousands to receive the faith. What an impressive witness this was to the resurrection of Jesus Christ! (to be concluded tomorrow)

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
