    Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.

Study His Word
  • 1Cor. 46-  Now, brothers and sisters, I have
    applied these things to myself and Apollos for
    your benefit, so that you may learn from us the
    meaning of the saying, Do not go beyond what is
    written. Then you will not be puffed up in being
    a follower of one of us over against the other.

House of Prayer
  • Mark 1117- And as he taught them, he said, Is
    it not written My house will be called a house
    of prayer for all nations? But you have made it
    a den of robbers.

Humility Repentance
  • Luke 1411- For all those who exalt themselves
    will be humbled, and those who humble themselves
    will be exalted.
  • Acts 319- Now repent of your sins and turn to
    God, so that your sins may be wiped away.

Love One Another
  • John 1335- By this everyone will know that you
    are my disciples, if you love one another.

Help Each Other
  • Galatians 62- Carry each others burdens, and
    in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

  • Luke 2219-20- And he took bread, gave thanks
    and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, This
    is my body given for you do this in remembrance
    of me. In the same way, after the supper he took
    the cup, saying, This cup is the new covenant in
    my blood, which is poured out for you.

Learn to Live as Godly People
  • Titus 211-12 For the grace of God has
    appeared that offers salvation to all people. It
    teaches us to say No to ungodliness and worldly
    passions, and to live self-controlled, upright
    and godly lives in this present age
