The Issue:

The Basic Truths Of Life!


The BibleEveryone that ever walked on this planet must come to terms in this life with some basic TRUTHS. These will be the basic truths that no one can argue with, if they are sane. Of course, if you believe what God says in His Own BOOK about you, then you will have no problem with accepting these basic truths.

1. The Brevity Of Life

"For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away." (James 4:14b) Our life is brief! like a vapor, or like smoke. "Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling?" (Job 7:1) He is born, and then he will die! This is certain! (The exception being Enoch and Elijah, and also, those believers in Jesus Christ who are alive when He comes for His Church.)

2. The Brevity Of Your Remembrance

You will soon be forgotten. A man is remembered only a little while, and then he is forgotten. "He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him anymore. Are not my days few? cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little, Before I go whence I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and the shadow of death; A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness." (Job 7:10 & 10:20-22)

3. The Sureness Of Trouble

Life is bale full of troubles. I have also found this very true!!! "Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not." (Job 14:1).

4. The Verity Of The White Throne Judgment

"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27). You will not miss this one unless YOU ARE HID in the CLEFT OF THE ROCK!

5. The Eternality And The Finality Of What You Do With Jesus Christ:

We will all be held accountable over this issue. It is a hard fact of life, my friend. Now will you take God's offer of eternal life ... purchased by His Son ... for all those who will put their trust in Him ... a thumbs down? You will everlastingly suffer the consequences!

6. That Men Never Learn From History

We learn from History That Men Never Learn From History! It is a heart problem! Men refuse to learn the "lessons" afforded by the light of HISTORY: the recorded historical events which occurred as fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Now, these are the basic truths with which we all must deal with one way or another!

7. What Should You Do?

"But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved"; [Romans 10:8-13]


Believe The BOOK!

The King James Bible

BibleThis is God's Holy WORD to you and I! Do you believe it? The A.V.1611 (or The King James Bible) is God's word PRESERVED in the English language for you and me. It came from the English Reformation. This Bible declares that: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." [2 Timothy 3:16] God's inspired word is preserved in the A.V.1611. The word "preserved" means maintained inspiration. "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in the furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever." [Psalm 12:6-7] “PRESERVE.” .

Home In The Hills:

[Or New Jerusalem]


demo Everybody is going home someday. Everybody is going to their LONG HOME. When you die, you are going to go to your “long home” whether, it be in “Heaven” or in “Hell”. Do you realize that truth? “Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets:” [Ecclesiastes 12:5].

From downtown Harriman turn north at the Duncan Ford Dealership on Highway 328 (Oakdale Road/Old Harriman Highway). From there go exactly 2.0 miles and turn right into the driveway (sharp turn into the driveway up the hill) at 2717 Old Harriman Highway. The chapel is on the left as you come up the driveway.
If coming from Oakdale, the chapel is about two miles from Oakdale on the left.

Our Goal:

To plant a Bible-believing independent Baptist Church in the Oakdale—Harriman area. “For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:” Ephesians 4:12

A Challenging Quiz for Christians:

by David F. Reagan - Present With The LORD [May, 2007]

Are you a Christian?

Do you know for sure that you have trusted in Jesus Christ as your Saviour and that your death would take you immediately into the presence of God?

If you can answer yes to these questions, then we can certainly rejoice with you. But let me ask you some other questions; questions that I hope you will carefully consider:

A hundred years after you are dead, what will it matter that you ever lived?

Does the devil ever get a report on you from his evil spirits about the trouble you are causing him?
How long has it been since you shed a tear for a lost soul?

What would God have to do to break your heart for Him and eternal things?

Is your life empty or filled with frivolous things? (They are one and the same)

Are you closer to God today than you were a year ago?

Make a list of the things you do that are seen as important in heaven.

Go ahead and make the list. Your record is being kept in heaven anyway. Have you considered what your record looks like?

God established His church in order to correct, challenge, encourage, and guide His people.

In church, believers get to know one another, help one another, and work together to accomplish things of eternal importance. Are you ready to serve God with all your heart?

Do you desire to do something really important; to make a difference?

If so, we invite you to Antioch Baptist Mission.

We would be thrilled to have you come."

What We Believe:

 1. We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

2. We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

3. We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a godly life.

4. We believe mankind is saved by grace through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ alone and not by works, righteous living, confirmation, baptism, church membership, or being raised in a Christian home or church.

5. We believe the King James Bible to be the inspired and infallible word of God and is the only written revelation of God given to mankind.

6. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved, resurrected to eternal life. Those who reject Christ's free gift of eternal life, to a resurrection of damnation in the lake of fire.

7. We believe that the moment someone truly accepts Christ's free gift of eternal life, that they are then indwelt by the Holy Spirit and are "born again" (John 3:3) and that this 'New Birth' is essential to salvation. Without the 'New Birth' the person is still dead in their sins and is lost.
