Psalm 046

1    God is our refuge and our strength,

          in straits a present aid;

2    Therefore, although the earth remove,

          we will not be afraid:

     Though hills amidst the seas be cast;

3         Though waters roaring make,

     And troubled be; yea, though the hills,

          by swelling seas do shake.

4    A river is, whose streams do glad

          the city of our God;

     The holy place, wherein the Lord

          most high hath his abode.

5    God in the midst of her doth dwell;

          nothing shall her remove:

     The Lord to her an helper will,

          and that right early, prove.

6    The heathen rag’d tumultuously,

          the kingdoms moved were:

     The Lord God uttered his voice,

          the earth did melt for fear.

7    The Lord of hosts upon our side

          doth constantly remain:

     The God of Jacob’s our refuge,

          us safely to maintain.

8    Come, and behold what wondrous works

          have by the Lord been wrought;

     Come, see what desolations

          he on the earth hath brought.

9    Unto the ends of all the earth

          wars into peace he turns:

     The bow he breaks, the spear he cuts,

          in fire the chariot burns.

10   Be still, and know that I am God;

          among the heathen I

     Will be exalted; I on earth

          will be exalted high.

11   Our God, who is the Lord of hosts,

          is still upon our side;

     The God of Jacob our refuge

          for ever will abide.

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.
