Hymn Focus The writer of Blessed Assurance , Fanny Crosby, lived to be almost ninety-five years of age and during that time penned the staggering total of over eight thousand sacred songs and hymns. What is even more remarkable is the fact that this great life's work was accomplished without the aid of eyesight. One day Miss Crosby was in the home of her friend Mrs. Joseph F. Knapp. In the Knapp home was installed what was believed to be the largest pipe organ ever placed in a private dwelling. However, on this particular day Mrs. Knapp called her guest over to the piano to listen to a new melody she had just composed. After playing the tune a few times she asked, 'What do you think the tune says?’ “Blessed assurance Jesus is mine”, answered Fanny Crosby, and then, drawing from her vast storehouse of Scripture knowledge, completed the hymn. In a very short time a new sacred song was born with words by Fanny Crosby and music by Mrs. J. F. Knapp. Although written as far back as 1873 Blessed Assurance still remains a firm favorite with Christians everywhere. -sermonaudio.com
CBC’s Articles of Faith We believe that the scriptures teach that, in order to be saved, sinners must be regenerated or born again; that regeneration consists in giving a holy disposition to the mind; that it is effected, in a manner above our comprehension, by the power of the Holy Spirit in connection with divine truth, so as to secure our voluntary obedience to the gospel; and that its proper evidence appears in the holy fruits of repentance and faith and newness of life. 7. Of Grace in Regeneration:
