The Church in Moses Lake is a meeting place for Christians and Believers who live in the Moses Lake, Washington area. We meet in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. We gather together to read and share the Word of God and encourage one another in our Life in Christ. You are most welcome to join us in Praise and Worship, but If you are not able to attend, the recorded messages are available to minister to you.

Definition: Without spot, defect or blemish, spotless, unblemished
1Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
2I urge you in the sight of God who gives life to all things, and before Christ Jesus who witnessed the good confession before Pontius Pilate, that you keep this commandment without spot, blameless until our Lord Jesus Christ’s appearing, which He will manifest in His own time, He who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, whom no man has seen or can see, to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen.
3For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? 4You were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.
5Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless; and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you.
1Eph. 5:25-27; 21 Tim. 6:13-16; 3Heb. 9:13-14; 41 Peter 1:18-19; 52 Peter 3:14-15
Do You Have The Assurance That Jesus Christ Lives In You?
What the Bible Says
The most basic thing in your relationship with God is to have the assurance that Jesus Christ lives in you. The Bible guarantees that you can have this assurance.
"God was pleased to reveal His Son in me." Galatians 1:15-16
"Behold, I [Christ] stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him." Revelation 3:20
"Do you not recognize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?" 2 Corinthians 13:5
"God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory." Colossians 1:27
"If Christ is in you, the spirit is life because of righteousness." Romans 8:10
Since the Bible reveals that man can have the definite assurance that Christ lives in him, how do you personally gain this assurance?
The first step in gaining the assurance that Jesus Christ lives in you is to understand that man was created with an inner capacity for Christ to live in him. The Bible describes this capacity by telling us that man is composed of three parts:
"Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ." 1 Thessalonians 5:23
The human spirit is the place in man where Christ comes to live:
"The Lord who...forms the spirit of man within him." Zechariah 12:1
"The one who joins himself to the Lord is one spirit with Him." 1 Corinthians 6:17
"That which is born of the Spirit is spirit." John 3:6
"The Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit." 2 Timothy 4:22
When you receive Christ, He enters directly into your spirit and you are born again.
