We at the Tulare Missionary Baptist Church appreciate your interest in our church. We realize that our nation is literally awash with churches and other places of worship. We are a friendly group of Christians. However, friendliness alone should not be the criteria used to decide to visit a church. The members of this church seek to honor and serve the Lord Jesus Christ through understanding and obedience to His holy Word. If you are seeking an understanding of the Word of God so that you might better serve Him, you have come to the right place!
We would be delighted should you come to worship the Lord together with us. Again, thank you for stopping by!
As we view the end of the first question Paul addressed, we must be struck by his logic. Since he did not personally know these believers, the first question Paul set out to prove was "Is The World Lost?" Paul had powerfully proven that man is naturally lost because he inherited a totally depraved nature from his father. Therefore, yes, all men need to be saved.
This is the most important and basic need of mankind; however, Paul also knew that even saved folk sin after they are saved and need to be "saved", or rescued from their sin. There are some misguided believers today that believe that truly saved folk will never sin again. However, all mankind are addressed in the first three chapters of this marvelous book. Indeed, those who have been saved know, only too well, the reality of their sins.
Yes, believers may be immoral, moral or even religious; yet, all believers sin and need to be rescued and forgiven for their sin. Not in order to be eternally saved, but to have fellowship restored with their Lord. Paul would not write these believers without telling them that there is hope for all sinners. Yes, Jesus "saves."

This New Testament assembly exists for the sole purpose of giving glory to the Lord Jesus Christ through obedience to His Word, the Bible. Obviously, one cannot demonstrate obedience to something about which he or she knows nothing, or very little. Therefore, the purpose of this assembly of scripturally baptized believers is dedicated commitment to learn and then live out the principles of the Word of God in our daily lives.
