For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.Ephesians 2:8-9

So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder!
  James 2:17-19

Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen… And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
  Hebrews 11:1, 6

So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.
  Romans 10:17

I do not merely want to possess a faith, I want a faith that possesses me. 
– Charles Kingsley

We can never have more of true faith than we have of true humility. 
– Andrew Murray

The issue of faith is not so much whether we believe in God, but whether we believe the God we believe in. 
– RC Sproul



I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Galatians 2:20



Good Good Father

Oh, I’ve heard a thousand stories
of what they think you’re like
But I’ve heard the tender whisper
of love in the dead of night
And you tell me that you’re pleased
And that I’m never alone

You’re a Good, Good Father
It’s who you are, It’s who you are
It’s who you are

And I’m loved by you
It’s who I am, It’s who I am
It’s who I am

[Verse 2]
Oh, I’ve seen many searching
for answers far and wide
But I know we’re all searching
For answers only you provide
Cause you know just what we need
Before we say a word


You are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways
You are perfect in all of your ways to us

[Verse 3]
Oh, this love so undeniable
I, I can hardly speak
Peace so unexplainable
I, I can hardly think

As you call me deeper still
As you call me deeper still
As you call me deeper still
Into love, love, love




Great is Our God

[Verse 1]
Come, let us praise Him
Let us kneel at the throne of our God
Through His Son our salvation was bought
With mercy and grace

Come, let us bow down
In His hands are the depths of the earth
With one voice we proclaim His great worth
Lord, our God

And we will seek Him
Our Rock of Salvation
Morning by morning
With thanksgiving we come

And we will bow down
With creation we cry out
In daylight and darkness
We sing to the Lord

Great is our God
Great is our God
Great is our God

[Verse 2]
Lord of all nations
We will stand at the end of our days
In Your courts and declare Your great ways
In Spirit and Truth

We long for Your Kingdom
Bring Your thunder and gather the earth
All who tremble will tell of Your worth
Lord, our God



Great Are You Lord/How He Loves

You give life, You are love
You bring light to the darkness
You give hope, You restore
Every heart that is broken
Great are You, Lord

It’s Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise
We pour out our praise
It’s Your breath in our lungs
So we pour out our praise to You only



All the earth will shout Your praise
Our hearts will cry, these bones will sing
Great are You, Lord

And we are His portion and He is our prize
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes
If grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking

So Heaven meets earth like an unforeseen kiss
And my heart turns violently inside of my chest
I don’t have time to maintain these regrets
When I think about the way

He loves us
Oh, how He loves us
Oh, how He loves us
Oh, how He loves

Oh, how He loves us, oh
Oh, how He loves us
How He loves us all

Meet King’s Cross Church! October 8, 2023. Hosted at Pastor Russ’s home not far from the school. For newer people to get to know our church and some leaders. Lunch will be included! Register HERE.

Two-Week Missions Seminar: “You and the Global Church” – Tragically, it is common in America today for followers of Jesus to neglect praying for, actively supporting, or giving much thought to the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20). What is the gift we are missing? What could it look like instead for us and families here in the South Bay? Join us for a two-part conversation about God’s heart for all people groups, His calling for some to leave the comforts of home, and His invitation to all believers – including you – to partner in this work. We’ll meet on Sundays, 10/22 & 10/29 at 8:30am. Register HERE.

“An Old Lady and a Little Girl”

21 And when Jesus had crossed again in the boat to the other side, a great crowd gathered about him, and he was beside the sea. 22 Then came one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name, and seeing him, he fell at his feet 23 and implored him earnestly, saying, “My little daughter is at the point of death. Come and lay your hands on her, so that she may be made well and live.”24 And he went with him.
And a great crowd followed him and thronged about him. 25 And there was a woman who had had a discharge of blood for twelve years, 26 and who had suffered much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was no better but rather grew worse. 27 She had heard the reports about Jesus and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his garment. 28 For she said, “If I touch even his garments, I will be made well.” 29 And immediately the flow of blood dried up, and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 30 And Jesus, perceiving in himself that power had gone out from him, immediately turned about in the crowd and said, “Who touched my garments?” 31 And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing around you, and yet you say, ‘Who touched me?’” 32 And he looked around to see who had done it. 33 But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling and fell down before him and told him the whole truth. 34 And he said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.”

Mark 5:21-34



Are You Washed in the Blood

[Verse 1]
Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing power?
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb?
Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb?

Are you washed in the blood? In the soul cleansing blood of the lamb
Are your garments spotless, are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the lamb?

[Verse 2]
Are you walking daily by the Savior’s side
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb
Do you rest each moment in the crucified
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?


[Verse 3]
Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin
And be washed in the blood of the lamb
There’s a fountain flowing for the soul unclean
Oh be washed in the blood of the lamb


And oh, how He loves us, oh,
Oh, how He loves us, how He loves us all




Peace be to the brothers, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Grace be with all who love our Lord Jesus Christ with love incorruptible.
Ephesians 6:23-24
