Taking the Living Word to a Dying World!

S. Racite

    Welcome to the web page for Cornwall Baptist Church.  We are delighted that you have chosen to view our ministry.  I would like to ask you to consider the concept of the written word.  Words are powerful and can be used to build one up or tear one down.  We are cautious with the words we choose, lest we have them brought back to bear on us.

    Knowing this, I would like to ask you to ponder the greatest Word ever given to man.  John 1:1 declares, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."  As John opens his Gospel, he declares to the reader that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Living Word of God.  Jesus Christ came so that we might know the way to eternal life.  Hebrews 1:1-3 declares, "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds; Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the Word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on High."

    God spoke to the prophets by dreams and visions, but now He has sent His Son in the likeness of sinful man so that we might have eternal life.  The Word in John 1 is the Lord Jesus Christ, who is declared in Hebrews 1.  The greatest Word ever given to man is the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God.  He was given to man, so that man might have eternal life with God above.

    Have you ever considered the living Word?  Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your own personal Savior?  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."  Acts 16:31 "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved."  Salvation may only be found through the Living Word of God.  This is the greatest Word that has ever been given to man.  Will you today receive the gift of eternal life found only as you believe on the Lord Jesus Christ.  No matter how many words you try, there is only one Name who saves, Jesus Christ.
