Psalm 012

1    Help, Lord, because the godly man

          doth daily fade away;

     And from among the sons of men

          the faithful do decay.

2    Unto his neighbour ev’ry one

          doth utter vanity:

     They with a double heart do speak,

          and lips of flattery.

3    God shall cut off all flatt’ring lips,

          tongues that speak proudly thus,

4    We’ll with our tongue prevail, our lips

          are ours: who’s lord o’er us?

5    For poor oppress’d, and for the sighs

          of needy, rise will I,

     Saith God, and him in safety set

          from such as him defy.

6    The words of God are words most pure;

          they be like silver try’d

     In earthen furnace, seven times

          that hath been purify’d.

7    Lord, thou shalt them preserve and keep

          for ever from this race.

8    On each side walk the wicked, when

          vile men are high in place.

Ekklesia Muskogee is a reformed baptist church that gathers for worship in Muskogee, Oklahoma. We confess the 1689 second London baptist confession of faith. We affirm the five solas of the Reformation as well as the doctrines of grace (otherwise known as the five points of Calvinism), and each of our pastors would not be ashamed to be called a Calvinist. We are a church led by elders, of which there is a plurality (also called pastors and overseers in the Scriptures). Our mission is to make disciples, love cities, and plant churches.
