Thou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently. O that my ways were directed to keep thy statutes! Then shall I not be ashamed, when I have respect unto all thy commandments. I will praise thee with uprightness of heart, when I shall have learned thy righteous judgments.
WELCOME TO RESCUE BAPTIST CHURCH
“Sinners are welcome at this church. We are a local body of the Lord Jesus Christ. As you spend time with us, you’ll soon discover we’re an imperfect church, with an imperfect pastor, yet by God’s undeserved grace, we preach, believe, and know the perfect gospel of our never-failing Lord Jesus Christ. We call His name Jesus for He shall, (not might, not maybe) but shall save His people from their sins, and every sinner that trusts in Christ is complete in Him, saved
to the uttermost” HEBREWS 7:25 (copied)

"How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them!" (Psalm 139:17).
“Have you thought what a comfort it is to have a God we can trust, a God who condescends to think on us, to consider our needs, and then supply them? What if all we had to believe in was ‘the laws of nature’, ‘mother nature’, ‘the big Guy’, ‘a Supreme Being’, or, ‘the man upstairs’? What if all we had to look forward to was some set of ‘laws’ and ‘powers’ acting apart from God? There are many who try to get away from the thought of a personal God; One who redeems, preserves, and provides for His people. The Bible declares a personal God who takes a special interest in His people, and thinks on them with a tender, gracious consideration. This is what David said, ‘How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! How great is the sum of them!’ What a blessing it is to be able to pray, ‘Our Father, who art in Heaven.’ The greatest blessing is to know God thinks on us.”
Pastor Milton Howard
WHO GETS THE GLORY?
“If you wish to know if the gospel you are hearing preached is the gospel of God, ask yourself this question, ‘Who gets the glory?’ If you wish to know whether your religious experience is of the flesh or of the Lord, ask yourself the same thing, ‘Who gets the glory?’ Also, examine all your gifts, works, and missionary efforts by the same rule, ‘Who gets the glory?’ God will not share His glory! That which is of God, from God, and for God’s glory will be blessed with His presence and power ‘that no flesh should glory in His presence. ... that, according as it is written, he that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.’ (1 Corinthians 1:29, 31).”
Pastor Henry Mahan
“Come unto Me, all you who are weary and heavy laden--and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
