Thanks for visiting our website. Please take a moment to read some of our articles and let us know what you think of them. We are a Bible based congregation that strives to uphold the scriptures as God’s truth for man’s spiritual life. Jesus assured His early disciples that those who abide in His word would know the truth (John 8:31-32; 17:17).
Unfortunately, many people have overlooked the Holy Scriptures, which contain the word of God, and have instead embraced human traditions as their guide (Mat 15:9). To determine what is right or wrong, some have erroneously depended upon personal feelings and emotions (Pro. 14:12). For this cause, the Rio Canario church takes up this humble challenge to enlighten and encourage men to acknowledge the potentials of the scriptures to lead men faithfully and accurately in all matters pertaining to God and salvation in Christ (Mat. 28:18; 4:4, 2Timothy 3:14-15). Notice what the Bible has to say concerning the reliability and usefulness of the scriptures; it states:
“All scripture is given by the inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instructions in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works” (2Timothy 3:16).
In the first century, men were confronted with biblical truth. They were taught that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God (John 20:30,31, Mat 16:16, Acts 2:36-37). As one would expect, the responses toward that have been mixed over the years. Some have openly and joyfully received it; their lives have been positively impacted by it (John 1:11-13. On the other hand, for skeptics and unbelievers, it has simply served to fueled their anger and hostility against the followers of Christ. Unbelievable but true, devoted men and women of all races paid an enormous price for their faith in Jesus, at the hands of those who denied the truth (Rev. 6:9-10). Nevertheless, the joy of witnessing the transforming power of Christ, which lies profoundly in the gospel, energizes all believers to study the scriptures daily and to share their findings with the world: Jesus Christ, a man approved of God, He was born of a virgin and hanged on an old rugged cross for the redemption of humanity (Acts. 2:23-24; 7:51ff; 17:11, John 5:39, Matthew 1:2023). Today, it is those truths that form the main components of the glorious gospel of Christ. Through inspiration, the apostle Paul wrote these words:
"For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth, to the Jew first and also to the Greek..." (Romans 1:16).
Indeed, we do not ask that you believe everything that we say; we do not pretend to know everything either, who does? All we ask of you is that you consider the truth that is penned in the pages of God's word. If you exert the effort to study the Bible, to love it and to apply its principles to your life, then your understanding of God’s plan, concerning salvation in Christ, will increase (2Tim 2:15; 3:15, 2Peter 3:18).
