What we Believe






Luke 13:23-30


Luke 13:24 Strive to enter in at the strait gate: for many, I say unto you, will seek to enter in, and shall not be able

Will only a few be saved? One of the disciples asked this of Christ while they were journeying toward Jerusalem. There is only one Gate. Many will seek, but they are not able to enter. There is a multitude which no one can number who have been and are being saved. They all came and will come through the strait gate. It seems that there are few to us because "few there be that find it" (Matt 7:14). There are those all around who play the ‘numbers game’. True believers are those who have come through the "strait gate." Many go in the wide gate and travel the broad way, but that way leads to destruction. They believe they are on the way to life but they are unable and unwilling to see the straight gate and the narrow way.

There are those who believe there are many ways to God. They are wrong. There are those who believe that we all worship the same God but only use different names. They are wrong. "Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth" (Phil 2:9,10). There is only one way. "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me" (John 14:6). Christ is the strait gate, the narrow way; He is the door of the sheep. Jesus does not have to knock on a heart’s door. He is the door, by Him man enters in and finds pasture. He is the Way. The Truth that believers know is Christ. Dead, alien sinners are quickened by the Holy Spirit and given life. Christ is Life. There is no other way which leads to life. There are other ways but these all lead to destruction. Those who have been given life know their Shepherd, know His voice, and they follow Him. These will sit down with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Those who do not know the Way are on the broad way and content to be on it. These will not enter because Christ never knew them.
