Baptised into Jesus Christ !

Dear Master,

in thy way, our willing feet shall tread; what joy thy mandate to obey, our great and glorious Head.

Thy all abounding grace has banished sin and night; and in the glory of thy face we see the eternal light.

By thy direction led, with gladness we confess that we to sin’s dark power are dead and risen to righteousness.

The closing waters hide our former world and we, seeking through death our Saviour’s side, rejoice to die with Thee.

And as we rise again, be this confession given, that we have risen with Christ to reign, the Lord of earth and heaven.

So would we die to live, and live no more to die, our risen lives O Christ receive, and seal them in the sky.

The personal icon photograph shows God's creation, the world. It reminds us that God is the Creator of all - the almighty, the all knowing and all present - the one who is most important of all. The one to whom we owe all, and the one to whom we will answer for all. The site's header image of the Bible [King James Authorised Version], a map, a light and a compass represent to us that God's word in the Bible is our spiritual map, illumination and guide through this life. Those who obey his teaching will know his presence and power - Gospel of John, chapter 14, verse 23
