Leadership & Staff

The Linwood Church of Christ is a body of called out believers (2 Thessalonians 2:14),  a local congregation of the Church of Christ that you can carefully read about in the Holy Bible (Matthew 16:18, Romans 16:16), with Jesus Christ as it’s head (Ephesians 1:22-23), the Holy Spirit as it’s guide (Romans 8:14, 1 Corinthians 6:19),and doing the will of God as it’s commitment (Matthew 7:21).

 

The aim of the Church of Christ is not to amuse or entertain, but, with meekness (1 Peter 3:15), reach out to you, proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ, and demonstrating edification and benevolence through God’s Word, which is the Holy Bible (Matthew 28:18-20, 2 Timothy 3:16-17).

 

The Linwood Church of Christ is a people of redemption and reconciliation.  Therefore, if you would like to worship and work out your salvation with us, we would love if you did, the doors are open, and the members are humbly awaiting to welcome you with a great smile, a warm hug, and loving fellowship.

 

LOCAL CONGREGATION MISSION

The mission of the Linwood Church of Christ is to show forth the love of God that we might build relationships with our family, friends, and neighbors and lead those who are lost to Christ (Matthew 28:18-20).

 

LOCAL CONGREGATION VISION

The vision of the Linwood Church of Christ is to be a godly, growing, thriving, and active church in our community (Titus 2:12, Galatians 6:10).

 

LOCAL CONGREGATION GOALS

1. We will provide spiritual and physical food for those who hunger, living water  for those who thirst, a place to call home for the stranger, and covering for  those who have none (Matthew 25:34-40).

 

2. We will provide comfort for those who are afflicted, and go out and help those  who are still locked up in the shackles of sin (Galatians 6:10).

 

3. Together, we will all grow in the unity of faith and in the knowledge of our  Lord Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 1:10, 2 Timothy 2:15).

 

“Discover the Power Within You”

 

Our History

 

Linwood Church of Christ’s long and interesting history began approximately in 1925, with its first worship service held on Hudson Street in Detroit, Michigan.  After which, the congregation moved to Willard School located on Hamilton at Davidson in Highland Park.  Later, a storefront on Labelle at the corner of Lincoln, and then the first permanent place on Ford Avenue at the corner of Thompson, in Detroit, Michigan.  It was at this location that Bro. James Stewart became Linwood’s (then, Ford Avenue Church of Christ) first full time-Minister.

 

 

 

Many ministers have served the congregation, such as Bro. Alonzo Rose, Bro. Charles Webb, Bro. Joseph Lewis, Bro. Orum Trone Jr. and Bro. Alex Davenport. However, Bro. Zebedee Bishop was the minister on two different occasions. He help build, and labored at the Wyoming Church of Christ after which, in1972 he returned to Ford Avenue (Ford/Linwood Church of Christ) to serve as Minister.  After several years of sacrificing to raise funds, Bro. Zebedee Bishop, Bro. Walter Balloon Sr. and Bro. Jessie Bishop Sr. as Elders, were able to break ground of a new site, at the current location of 14001 Linwood on May 1975.  Occupancy took place the following year on Mother’s Day 1976.  December, 1989, Linwood Church of Christ was blessed to burn its mortgage.

 

In 1982, Bro. Paul McClendon was ordained as Elder, which in later years Bro. Lawrence Collins, Bro. Marshall Powell, Bro. Theodore Griffin, and Bro. Tommy Slaughter was all ordained.  Along with others (whom became Elders), in the 1980’s Bro. Samuel Anthony served as deacon).  In 1996 Bro. Easley Daney, Bro. Fred Gary, and Bro. Waymond Guthery were ordained as Elders, while Bro. David Stovall II, Bro. Mark Gibson, and Bro. Henry Davis was ordained as Deacons.

 

After serving the congregation for over 25 years, Bro. Zebedee Bishop retired, Bro. Marshall Powell resigned as Elder, and Bro. Jerry Macon became the next Minister.  Within this time, Bro. Theodore Griffin, and Bro. Tommy Slaughter resigned to serve another congregation, and sadly, Bro. Easley Daney passed on from life to eternity.  After three years, Bro. Jerry Macon departed the Linwood Church of Christ to form what is currently known as the Metro Central Church of Christ.  After which, many Ministers served the Linwood congregation, such as Bro. Charles Wilson, whom implemented the “ministry of reconciliation” for 2 years, Bro. James Mark Thompson, whom carried the congregation from 90 members to 800 within one year, and 1100 members within 4 years.

 

Due to the overwhelming growth of the congregation during Bro. James Mark Thompson’s tenure, the church moved its worship service from the Linwood location to the Shiner Theater in Southfield, Michigan to await the completion of a new larger edifice on Dexter Avenue in Detroit, Michigan.  However, due to unforeseen circumstances, Bro. James Mark Thompson departed the congregation.  The end of 1996 was very difficult for the Congregation.  In spite of the circumstance, several members remained under the leadership of Bro. James Mark Thompson to form another church, while others returned back to the Linwood location, with Bro. Paul McClendon, Bro. Waymond Guthery Sr., Bro. David Stovall II, and Bro. Fred Gary serving as Elders.  At the end of 2006, Bro. Fred Gary resigned as Elder, relocating south, while early in 2007, Bro. Paul McClendon became Elder Emeritus, having served the congregation for over 30 years.

 

After Bro. James Mark Thompson departure many Ministers served the congregation for transitional purposes, two of those individuals were Bro. Jason Moore of the Royal Oak Church of Christ, and Bro. Donale Stewart of the Franklin Road Church of Christ.

 

Installed in September 2007 as Ministers, Bro. Donale Stewart and Jason Moore brought a wide range of leadership abilities to the congregation. With the synergy of the Elders; Waymond Guthery Sr., and David Stovall II, Trustees; Rahman Kenyatta, John Mack, Samuel Black, Stanley Davidson, and Sylvester Jones, their primary focus was “pressing forward, and building the church quantitatively and qualitatively through spiritual and loving relationships, and the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

However, at the beginning of 2011, God had advanced his purpose within the Linwood Church of Christ.  She found herself in the midst of another transition that would reshape the face of the congregation.  Early in the year, Elder Waymond Guthery Sr. resigned which caused the dissolving of the overall Eldership.  A month later, Elder David Stovall II resigned from leadership and, a week after Elder David Stovall II’s resignation, Minister Jason Moore resigned to pursue other tasks within the Royal Oak Church of Christ.  This, however, opened another chapter to the Linwood church of Christ; organizing the leadership with Bro. Donale Stewart still as the Evangelist/Minister, and a new Trustee board (Rahman Kenyatta, Paul McClendon, John Mack, Samuel Black, Stanley Davidson, and Timothy Darby Sr. also named as the Congregation Leading Brothers);

 

In 2012, Paul McClendon and Timothy Darby Sr. vacated the Leadership and Trustee Board for personal reasons.  In 2014, Rahman Kenyatta made his eternal transition, and in 2015 Linwood installed Taylor Todd as Assistant Minister and named Henry Capers as a member of the Trustee Board/Leading Brother.  However, for personal reasons, after three months, Taylor Todd resigned and vacated the Assistant Minister’s position, thus leaving Donale Stewart remaining as Minister, and Samuel Black, Stanley Davidson, John Mack, and Henry Capers as Trustees and Leading Brothers; all united with the vision to continue a focus on Christ, pressing forward, and building the church as God commands, quantitatively and qualitatively through spiritual and loving relationships, and the proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

 

 

 

What we Believe

 

THE CHURCH OF CHRIST

Ephesians 4:4-6 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

 

 

PROPHESIED

It was prophesied throughout the Holy Bible.

Psalms 127:1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

 

Isaiah 2:2 And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD's house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it.

 

Zechariah 1:16 Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.

 

Matthew 16:18  (Jesus) And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

 

 

ESTABLISHED

It was established in A.D. 33 in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost after Christ’s Death (Acts 2).

Isaiah 2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.

 

Luke 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

 

Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

 

 

NAME

Because The Church of Christ was established and built by Jesus Christ, it wears his name.

Romans 16:16 Salute one another with an holy kiss. The churches of Christ salute you.

 

Acts 11:26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

 

 

DOCTRINE

It has one doctrine/creed that cannot and must not be added to or subtracted from.

Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

 

Galatians 1:6-10 I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

 

2 Timothy 3:16-17 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

 

Revelation 22:18-19 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book: And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

 

 

CORE BELIEF SUMMARY

The Church of Christ core belief is God, whom exists in three persons, to fulfill his ultimate purpose, to have the world united under one doctrine and belief.  The Godhead is comprised of The Father, The Word (Jesus Christ), and The Holy Spirit/Ghost – 1 John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.  Again, in Ephesians 3:2-11 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward: How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ) Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel: Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power. Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:

 

It believes that all things, especially in reference to spiritual things must be proved by Biblical command, example, and necessary inference.

 

The terms Christian and church of Christ are the two defining terms/names given.  The terms/names given represents that the saved belongs to Christ.

 

It “studies to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth,” in order to “sanctify the Lord God in their hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh them a reason of the hope that is in them with meekness and fear:

 

Its ultimate goal is to preach and teach the Word of God and Salvation.  – Matthew 28:18-20 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

 

Its center piece message is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. – 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

 

 

LEADERSHIP ORGANIZATION

Jesus Christ is the head of the Church of Christ

Ephesians 5:23, For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the Saviour of the body.

 

Colossians 1:18 And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

 

 

Elders (2 or more) to oversee local Congregations of the Church of Christ.

Acts 20:28 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.)  They in addition answer directly to Christ.

 

Acts 14:23 And when they had ordained them elders in every church, and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to the Lord, on whom they believed.

 

Titus 1:5 For this cause left I thee in Crete, that thou shouldest set in order the things that are wanting, and ordain elders in every city, as I had appointed thee:

 

1 Peter 5:1-4 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

 

 

Evangelist to edify and build up the church.

Ephesians 4:11-12 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:

 

 

Deacons to support the Elders and Evangelist.

Acts 6:1-5 And in those days, when the number of the disciples was multiplied, there arose a murmuring of the Grecians against the Hebrews, because their widows were neglected in the daily ministration. Then the twelve called the multitude of the disciples unto them, and said, It is not reason that we should leave the word of God, and serve tables. Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business. But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word. And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch:

 

1 Timothy 3:8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, not double tongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;

 

 

How We Worship

 

The Church of Christ is commanded to worship every Lord’s Day in accordance to the order of the New Testament Church of Christ (Hebrews 10:25).

 

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

 

 

SINGING

The example of (music) demonstrated in the church is “acapella,” singing without physical instruments

Ephesians 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

 

Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in salms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

 

 

PRAYING

Acts 2:42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

 

 

COMMUNION

Command:  Matthew 26:26-29 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins. But I say unto you, I will not drink henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

 

When:  Acts 20:7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

 

How:  1 Corinthians 11:23-29 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread, and drink this cup of the Lord, unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a man examine himself, and so let him eat of that bread, and drink of that cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord's body.

 

 

GIVING

1 Corinthians 16:1-2 Now concerning the collection for the saints, as I have given order to the churches of Galatia, even so do ye. Upon the first day of the week let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.

 

2 Corinthians 9:6-7 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.

 

 

TEACHING (PREACHING)

Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

 

Acts 20:7 And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

 

Romans 10:14-15 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

 

1 Thessalonians 2:9 For ye remember, brethren, our labour and travail: for labouring night and day, because we would not be chargeable unto any of you, we preached unto you the gospel of God.

 

2 Timothy 4:1-2 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.

 

Reading

1 Timothy 4:13 Till I come, give attendance to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine.

 

Colossians 4:16 And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.

 

 

How to establish a relationship with God (become a member)

 

There is ONLY one way into Christ, his body, the Church of Christ (Ephesians 1:22-23), that is through Jesus Christ, the establisher, builder, and owner.  Jesus said in John 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

 

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

 

Find a local Church of Christ (such as the Linwood Congregation) or Church of Christ Member (Christian), and he shall use the Word of God as “a lamp unto your feet, and a light unto your path.” (Psalms 119:105), specifically present the Gospel of Jesus Christ:

 

1 Corinthians 15:1-4  Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.  For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

 

Romans 1:16-17  For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

 

Galatians 1:6-12  I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:  Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.  But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.  As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.  For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.  But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.  For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

 

 

HEAR

Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

 

 

BELIEVE

Mark 16:16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

 

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

 

 

REPENT

Luke 13:3-5 I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Or those eighteen, upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, and slew them, think ye that they were sinners above all men that dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.

 

 

CONFESS

Matthew 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.

 

 

BE BAPTIZED

Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

 

John 3:3-5 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

 

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

 

Galatians 3:27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.

 

1 Peter 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

 

 

ADDITION

Acts 2:47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

One then would work out his salvation with a local congregation of the Church of Christ (such as the Linwood Congregation)

 

 

LIFESTYLE

The Church of Christ lifestyle is a faithful, holy, and righteous lifestyle, to be found of God, holy, blameless, and walking in love.

 

Matthew 7:21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.

 

Romans 12:1-2 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.  And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

 

Colossians 3:1-6 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory. 5Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry:  For which things’ sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience:

 

2 Peter 1:5-7 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.

 

Revelation 2:10 Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

 

 

REWARD

By one being added to the Church of Christ, he inherit the things that God promise through his Son, Jesus Christ.

 

John 14:1-4 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.

 

2 Peter1:8-11 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

 

1 John 2:25 And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life.
