This site is about following the Lord Jesus the Christ.
Consequently you won’t see a statement of faith or a creed. Personally I don’t follow a creed; By the enormous, unspeakable gift of grace I follow the Lord Jesus the Christ.
Jerimiah 31:34 And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least (smallest – youngest) of them unto the greatest (biggest – oldest) of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

However, it is mostly written by me, just a disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ who sees through a veil, darkly. So this is a sort of health warning. Jesus makes it plain that unless we have revelation that is from above, we are all blind to spiritual truth. In the passage about the revelation that Simon Peter had, that the man Jesus was in fact the son of God, the Christ, it is clearly demonstrated that the truth did not reside in the man, Simon Peter. If it did, then he would not have presumed to tell the Christ what He should or should not do. In his own, natural reasoning, Simon Peter was blind. Spiritual truth is only revealed by the Spirit.
Hence the warning to not put our trust in perceived human leaders, but rather to cling to Jesus, the One sent and who has himself sent the Holy Spirit, who leads us into all truth.
Even those of us privileged to be called to be now the sons of God may by our human nature look for a man or men to intervene between us and God. Someone to feed us with a word from God, or to pray on our behalf, just as the people of Israel who had been called out from Egypt that they might all worship God begged Moses to be their proxy.
Exodus 20:19 And they said to Moses, Speak you with us, and we will hear: but let not God speak with us, lest we die.
In this Moses was a type of the coming Christ, who has Himself passed within the veil with His own blood, interceding for us.
So, this site is solely for the purpose of encouraging those who encounter it to look to Jesus, who is the Truth, the Life, and the Way, the beginner and completer of our faith.
I would love to hear from any fellow saints in Tyneside or thereabouts. If you are a disciple of the Christ living in Tyneside I would very much like to be in touch with you as we are commanded to; ‘Speak to one another.’ Please send me an email with your phone number and we can talk. Please read my open letters to my fellow saints in Gateshead.
If you don’t know the Lord Jesus in a real personal way (not just as an imaginary friend) then you may like to read my letter to someone wanting to know Jesus which I hope may help.
I have some writings which are principally aimed at disciples of the Lord Jesus.
I don’t level any criticism at those (the vast majority) of the saints who are currently members of any distinct organization or group. Take a look at ‘Why Go To Church?’– Click to download the file.

I have written a piece about the alternative in The Lord’s Supper.
I started writing a book in 1993 called ‘Not By Might, Not By Power’ – Click to download the file, 240k, prints out to about 53 A4 pages.

A semi-autobiographical look at being a disciple/pupil of the Lord Jesus the Christ from the viewpoint of someone who has experienced modern western ‘churchianity’ and survived.

Here’s the list of open letters I sent to my fellow saints in Gateshead over a period from April 2000 to December 2002. Since writing and sending out these letters I have learned a little more hopefully and probably would not write them exactly the same today. But this is where I was at at that time, shows how we are seeing through a glass darkly.
