The 56 Signers of the Declaration of Independence

July the Fourth, 1776

What happened to those who signed the historic document? Five were captured by the British as traitors, then tortured before they died. Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned. Two lost their sons in the Revolutionary Army, another had two sons captured.  Nine of the fifty-six fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

These first American heroes pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor. What kind of men were they? Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists.  Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners. They were men of means, well educated. But they signed knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy.   He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags. Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward. Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton. At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire … his home was totally destroyed. Nelson died bankrupt. Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months. John Hart was driven from his wife’s bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished. A few weeks later he died from exhaustion.  Norris and Livingston suffered similar fates.

Such are the stories and sacrifices of the American revolutionaries. These were not wild eyed, rabble-rousing ruffians. They were soft-spoken men of means and education. They had security, but they valued liberty more. Unwavering, they pledged: “For the support of this declaration, with firm reliance on the protection of the divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other, our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.” They gave us a free and independent America. We must never take our liberties for granted!

52 of the 56 signers of The Declaration of Independence

were orthodox, deeply committed Christians!

Pastor’s Notes – Bulletin for June 25

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

June 25, 2017

“The last days” (2 Tim 3:1) is evidenced by local church attendance.

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. (Heb. 10:25)

The ministry of Bible teaching, Gospel preaching local Baptist Churches has become increasingly insignificant in this culture, while at the same time, faithful attendance has become a low priority to most professing Christians. Jesus characterized “the last days,” declaring that “iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold (Mat 24:12). Mid-week service and Sunday night service has become an “endangered species” in most Churches. Some have instituted Saturday night services, so the membership is free for “whatever” on Sunday. However, Sunday is not “fun day;” Sunday is the Lord’s Day!

The effective ministry of local Churches in America is diminishing to the applause of a worldly culture that does not want our kind of Church, particularly because of strong convictions about separation from the world-system and godless life-styles. We promote the sanctity of marriage and are pro-life. I constantly appeal to Church members to counter the world-system by faithful attendance in Sunday and Wednesday services. The Bible will continue to be taught and preached four times each and every week. In these “perilous last days,” we need more of God’s Word, not less! See 1 Cor. 1:18.

“Christ loved the church, and gave Himself for it(Eph. 5:25). The Church (assembly) is not paranormal, but the visible and viable house of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth (1 Tim. 3:15). Being in Christ (2 Cor 5:17), every born-again, Bible-believer surely loves what Christ loves!  It follows then, that Christians will love their local Church where they can give themselves to joyfully and faithfully serve the Lord! The time-limited ministry of New Testament Christians in local Churches ends soon with the Rapture (1 Thess. 4:13-17).

Knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep:

for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed (Rom 13:11).

Pastor’s Notes – Bulletin for June 11

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

June 11, 2017

Flag Day, June 14

2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.

The Colors of our Flag
  • White signifies purity and innocence
  • Red, hardiness and valor
  • Blue, vigilance, perseverance and justice

Our flag represents our freedom and liberty as a sovereign nation. No other country can tell us what to do. However, more is involved in maintaining that freedom. Freedom is not an inherent right for all time. We could lose that freedom because of making wrong choices for our lives. Many countries have fallen due to the sin and rebellion of their own people.

Alexis de Tocqueville was a French political thinker and historian, most famous for his work Democracy in America, published in 1831. He came from France to visit America. He wondered where America got her greatness from. He toured many states and visited many factories and places. Here is a famous quote from his book:

Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits, aflame with righteousness, did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.

Just as America’s freedom depends on the choices we make, Jesus gives us a choice to either be bound by sin or be free through Him. That includes continuing in the Word of God and building a relationship with Him. Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. They answered him, We be Abraham’s seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free? Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin. And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever. If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:31-36

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Why Go to Sunday School?

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:

God has given differing offices to those who are involved in building His churches. God blessed many of you last Sunday through the preaching of Evangelist Larry Clayton. He has the office of an evangelist. One office that some neglect to hear is that of teacher. We have many gifted teachers in our church, but for you to be ministered to, you must attend a class. Sunday School sets the stage for better understanding. The class is designed to meet the needs of each specific age group, including children, singles, college/career, young parents, mature adults, etc.

Sunday School is important because it provides additional opportunities in the church for learning. Visitors, new attendees and other church members can get to know one another better in this setting. People in the community are looking for a real church with real people who care about them. Sunday School provides a great opportunity of developing friendships and trust, which tends to make attendees more committed to Christ and His purpose for them.

Please be here at 9:30 AM next Sunday!

TODAY: Evangelist Larry Clayton

Please welcome Dr. Larry Clayton to our pulpit today. His ministry began in the Akron Baptist Temple in 1952.  This Man of God has been in the ministry for 65 years, preaching in 80 Mission fields around the world and has had a part in planting over 100 churches in America. Besides holding two honorary doctorate degrees, Dr. Clayton is a graduate of the Baptist Bible College in Springfield Missouri. Larry and wife, Lois, are members of the Cleveland Baptist Church in Cleveland Ohio. Ministering to us today, Brother Clayton will also be the principal Preacher at the Church Builders Conference here tomorrow at 7:00 PM and Tuesday at 11:00 AM and 7:00 PM.

Arizona Independent Baptist Fellowship Meeting

Larry and Lois Clayton

Dr. Larry Clayton

Monday and Tuesday, June 5-6

The two-fold purpose of the statewide bi-monthly meeting of Pastors is 1) to encourage Men of God to obey their calling to preach and teach without compromise the inspired, preserved Scriptures, and 2) to challenge Men of God to lead their congregations to plant new Gospel-preaching, separatist Baptist Churches as home-missions projects.

Out wonderful Choir will be singing and of course, the Church family is invited. Scheduled times: Monday (7PM) and Tuesday (9AM-Noon & 7PM).  Meals will be prepared for out-of-town guests only. If you can’t attend, will you pray for this special event that will eventually get unsaved folks saved and God’s people edified.

Be reminded: your very own New Testament Church was at its “planting,” a home-missions project. Fifty-eight years ago, other Churches and Pastors invested in this ministry that has spiritually impacted you and yours and countless others.

Jesus declared;  “… upon this Rock [Christ – 1Cor 10:4]

 I will build my Church; and the gates of Hell

shall not prevail against it.”   (Matt 16:18)

Paul taught: “… Christ also loved the Church,

and gave Himself for it.” (Eph 5:25)

If Jesus Christ builds and defends and loves and gives Himself to His Church,

You should build and defend and love and give Yourself to His Church, also!

WHAT IS NEEDED FOR A CHURCH TO BE PROPERLY CONSTITUTED?

The book of Titus was written to instruct in the proper organization of churches. There were believers in Crete, but there was still something lacking: They needed to be organized into N.T. churches (Tit 1:5). According to Titus, the following are necessary for a proper church:

(1) A proper Gospel (Tit 1:1-3). The one true Gospel is eternal life through faith in the grace of Jesus Christ. It is grace alone and faith alone without admixture. Anything else is cursed (Ga 1:6-9). The sound Gospel also calls for sound ordinances that symbolize the Gospel-believer’s baptism as symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ (Ro 6:3-5), and the Lord’s Supper as a memorial meal symbolizing Christ’s atonement through His shed blood and broken body (1Co 11:23-26).

(2) Proper leadership (Tit 1:5-9). The only proper leaders for a N.T. church are the pastors, also called “elders” (Tit 1:5) and “bishops” (Tit 1:7). A church is not to be run by a denominational hierarchy.

(3) Proper doctrine (Tit 2:1). A N.T. church is grounded in the whole counsel of God (Ac 20:27; Mt 28:20), in sound doctrine pertaining to Christ, God, Man, Sin, Death, Heaven, Hell, Angels, Prophecy, the Church, and every other Bible truth.

(4) Proper living (Tit 2:2-12). A N.T. church will manifest godliness in Christian life and service.

(5) Proper discipline (Tit 3:10-11). A N.T. church will exercise discipline pertaining to morals (1Co 5) and doctrine.                         [Way of Life Encyclopedia – David Cloud]

Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in our nation’s service. Be sure to fly “Old Glory” in front of your house, and throughout the day, pray for this divided nation!  Memorial Day is not about division, but it could be about reconciliation – a coming together to honor those who gave the last full measure of devotion for our freedoms!

Tonight:  The “NEW JERUSALEM” replacing the “Old Jerusalem.”

President Trump has been in the Middle East and the holy City has been much in the news! Our omnipotent God has plans for Jerusalem. The Book of Revelation describes the “NEW JERUSALEM” as a beautiful city with twelve foundations, coming down from Heaven.  In the evening service (6 PM), Brother Donald Hoogendoorn will present details the Apostle John gives of the celestial City.

Pastor’s Notes – Bulletin for May 21, 2017

Dr. J. C. Joiner

Dr. J. C. Joiner

May 21, 2017

Principles of Freedom Needed in Washington Right Now!

  1. The only reliable basis for sound government and just human relations is Natural Law.
  2. A free people cannot survive under a republican constitution unless they remain virtuous and morally strong.
  3. The most promising method of securing a virtuous and morally stable people is to elect virtuous leaders.
  4. Without religion, the government of a free people cannot be maintained.
  5. All things were created by God, therefore upon Him all mankind are equally dependent, and to Him they are equally responsible.
  6. All men are created equal.
  7. The proper role of government is to protect equal rights, not provide equal things.
  8. Men are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights.
  9. To protect man’s rights, God has revealed certain principles of divine law.
  10. The God-given right to govern is vested in the sovereign authority of the whole people.
  11. The majority of the people may alter or abolish a government which has become tyrannical.
  12. The United States of America shall be a republic.
  13. A constitution should be structured to permanently protect the people from the human frailties of their rulers.
  14. Life and liberty are secure only so long as the right of property is secure.
  15. The highest level of prosperity occurs when there is a free market economy and a minimum of government regulations.
  16. The government should be separated into three branches: legislative, executive, and judicial.
  17. A system of checks and balances should be adopted to prevent the abuse of power.
  18. The unalienable rights of the people are most likely to be preserved if the principles of government are set forth in a written constitution.
  19. Only limited and carefully defined powers should be delegated to government, all others  being retained in the people.
  20. Efficiency and dispatch require government to operate according to the will of the majority, but constitutional provisions must be made to protect the rights of the minority.
  21. Strong local self-government is the keystone to preserving human freedom.
  22. A free people should be governed by law and not by the whims of men.
  23. A free society cannot survive as a republic without a broad program of general education.
  24. A free people will not survive unless they stay strong.
  25. Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations: entangling alliances with none.
  26. The core unit which determines the strength of any society is the family; therefore, the government should foster and protect its integrity.
  27. The burden of debt is as destructive to freedom as subjugation by conquest.
  28. The United States has a manifest destiny to be an example and a blessing to the entire human race.

Church Planter’s Conference:

Dr. Larry Clayton

Monday and Tuesday, June 5-6

Often, you’ve heard me declare the cliché: It’s not what’s happening in the “White House” so much as, what is happening in the “Church House.”  In the light of God’s Word and the horrendous times in which we live, nothing could be truer!

The two-fold purpose of the statewide bi-monthly meeting of Pastors is 1) to encourage men of God to obey their calling to preach and teach the inspired Scriptures, and 2) to lead their congregations to plant as home-mission’s projects new Gospel-preaching, separatist Churches.

Our wonderful Choir will be singing and of course, the Church family is invited. Scheduled times: Monday (7PM) and Tuesday (9AM-Noon & 7PM).  Meals will be prepared for out-of-town guest only. If you can’t attend, will you pray for this special event that will eventual get folks saved and God’s people edified?

Be reminded: your New Testament Church was at its “planting,” a home-missions project. Fifty-eight years ago, other Churches and Pastors invested in this ministry that has spiritually impacted you and yours … Praise God!


RU Meets Fridays at 7 PM / Sundays at 9:30 AM – Everyone is welcome. We especially need a van driver for Friday nights.

FOOD BANK

After each service, we make available to families in need of a bag of non-perishable groceries (limited to one bag per month). To help us keep our pantry stocked we welcome you to bring in non-perishable items. We do not need any vegetables at this time. We are short on peanut butter and canned meats such as tuna, chicken, Vienna sausage, spam, etc. Please bring your items to the front foyer and let an usher know. Richard and Judy Sabin oversee this ministry.

Please look at the expiration dates. We cannot give out expired food items.

Happy Mother’s Day

Dr. J. C. Joiner

May 14, 2017

All MOTHERS TO BE HONORED

A Gift For Every Mother

An additional gift presented to:

Mother (newest)

Mother (eldest)

Mother (most years as a born again Christian)

Mother (most children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren)

Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. (Proverbs 31:28)

“There are two ways in which we can honor our mothers to whom we owe our homes, and whose mother’s love gave us a glimpse into the heart of God. First of all, we can express our love and gratitude in some tangible way. While, of course, we can never repay our mother for her love, sacrifice, tears and patience, we can certainly use an occasion like Mother’s Day for cheering her heart. May God have mercy upon you if you have a forgotten mother somewhere in the world!

In the next place, we can resolve to be the men and women our mothers want us to be. Are you a child of many prayers? Has a mother yearned over you and striven to lead you to the feet of the crucified Saviour? As yet, however, her prayers and pleadings have been in vain. What a load it would lift from her loving heart if only you would turn to the Master she dearly loves!

If your beloved mother has journeyed beyond the shadows of earth, rest assured that even in the glory land her heart can be made to rejoice over the tidings of your salvation, carried to her by divine messengers.”

Lockyer, Herbert. All the Women of the Bible. Zondervan. P. 304

Today We welcome Missionary Jack Baskin

Missionary Baskin entered the Korean War at the age of 21, in 1952. In 1959, he returned with his family. “I wanted to share my joy of salvation with the Korean people. I never stopped thinking about Korea,” he confessed.

During the next eight years, up to 1967, he founded 8 churches around the country, starting with Bulkwangdong Bible Baptist Church; and he played an important part in the establishment of the Bible Baptist Theological Seminary in 1965. Now his disciples lead the Korea Baptist Bible Fellowship.

Current Burden: He is working with nationals from Korea and the Philippines to help with underground church planting in Vietnam and in the “Killing Fields” of Cambodia, Congo and Zambia.

One of his greatest burdens is to motivate pastors to start Sunday School Classes in Spanish that some might become missionaries from the United States to the lost Spanish speaking people of the world.

What if you were a young person today and felt God calling you to the mission field?

  1. 1.  Go to a simple Bible College that teaches the Whole Word of God.
  2. Learn the use of computers.
  3. Learn English well!
  4.  Learn how to learn a language.
  5. Ditch the Hollywood style of dating and find a spouse that wants to serve God!
  6. Develop a daily walk with God!
