Our fellowship is not a church, per se, but we welcome all believers from around the world who make up the spiritual body of Christ (His church) to participate through this website in mutual fellowship, encouragement, instruction and personal worship through Jesus Christ.
Our primary message and ministry is Jesus Christ. He is our only Foundation. He is the Rock upon which we stand. He is our Pearl of great price and inestimable Treasure. He is our infinite Wisdom and everlasting Joy. He is our gracious Lord and perfect Savior Ė our Prophet, Priest and King.
Jesus Christ is the Lamb of God who came to take away the sin of the world (John 1:29, 36), so that everyone believing in Him might have eternal life (John 3:16-17, 36). He is the truth, the way and the life; no one can come to God the Father but by Him (John 14:6).
The unique and exclusive role of Jesus Christ as Godís holy and spotless Lamb is central in the Bible with past, present and future dimensions (Luke 24:25-27; John 5:39-40).
- Jesusí mission of salvation as the Lamb of God was prophetically pictured and foretold in the Old Testament hundreds of years before His birth through images of suffering and animal sacrifices (Genesis 22:7-8; Exodus 29:38-42; Isaiah 53:7, 10; Jeremiah 11:19), especially the Passover Lamb (Exodus 12:11-13).
- The New Testament shows how these types and shadows were fulfilled through the person and work of Jesus Christ, which culminated at the Cross, as Jesus poured out His blood to purchase people from every nation (1 Corinthians 5:7; 11:23-26; Colossians 2:17; 1 Timothy 1:15; 1 Peter 1:18-21; 1 John 2:1-2; Revelation 5:9).
- After laying down His life for His own (His sheep, His Brethren, His Church, His Bride), the risen and reigning Christ is now gathering together "the children of God who are scattered abroad" (John 11:52) through the life-giving activity of His Spirit, the proclamation of the gospel, and belief in the truth (John 10:14-16, 27-30; 17:2, 9, 19-20; 2 Thessalonians 2:13-14).
- The promised Lamb of God who came into the world, suffered and died, yet now lives, is bringing many sons to glory (Hebrews 2:10-17). He will be honored and praised forever by the redeemed as the One who ransomed them by His blood and made them to be a kingdom of priests to serve God and reign upon the earth with Him in the age to come (Revelation 5:6-14).
While there are many names and titles given to Jesus throughout the Bible, the risen Christ is depicted as the Lamb who was slain over twenty times in the book of Revelation (a.k.a. "The Revelation of Jesus Christ"). This seems to be one of our Lord's favorite ways of describing Himself.
Identifying our fellowship with "the Lamb" reminds us of our Lord's humble and sacrificial example, as well as the great price He paid to purchase us as His people.
We do not belong to ourselves; we have been bought with an infinite price so that we might bring our Lord and God honor and praise; and know firsthand His joy, love and fellowship of suffering in this world, followed by eternal rest and glory in the age to come (1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 7:23; compare Isaiah 44:22; Jeremiah 9:23-24; John 17:1-26; Acts 20:28; Romans 8:17, 36; 2 Corinthians 1:5; Philippians 3:8-11; Titus 2:14; Hebrews 9:12; 1 Peter 1:18-19;4:13; 1 John 3:5). "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden," Jesus said, "and I will give you rest" (Matthew 11:28).
