For I rejoiced greatly, when the brethren came and testified of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth. (3 John 3, 4)

  1. God is truth. Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life … (John 14:6).
  2. God’s truth is more important than His name. I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name (Ps 138:2).
  3. Without truth (the Word) there would be no virtue. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true … if there be any praise, think on these things (Phil. 4:8).
  4. God desires to be worshipped, praised and known by His truth.God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24).
  5. God desires His children to walk in truth. For I rejoiced greatly … of the truth that is in thee, even as thou walkest in the truth. I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth (3John 3-4).
  6. Ultimately, God will destroy all those who reject His truth. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness (Rom 1:18).

Truth is essential to God! Truth must be essential to us!

ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32).

RU has a great curriculum for the study of the fruit of the Spirit and fruits of righteousness: Some RU Definitions from our curriculum: Serviceability is when we are agreeable to being durable and moldable that we may become usable.– Come join us!


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.
