While the Sun is symbolic of the revelation of truth, the desert is shown in Scripture
to symbolize  the lonesome wasteland of severe trial, the sacred proving ground of faith
and the arena in which the precious gem of endurance is perfected. This is a ministry
of consolation for the
sorely tried and beleaguered pilgrims who are being purified
in the desert, whose spirits are being afflicted under the searing revelation of truth.

Highest Recommendation
Church of Greenville
It is truly difficult in this age to find a church which genuinely reflects the best of those having sprung from the original church formed by Jesus. As the Kingdom advanced through the world from that first century, we can clearly discern the presence of true churches in every age and in many countries, often by means of a trail of blood. From the 17th through the 20th centuries, many of them bore the title, “Baptist. However, as the distinction of that title became blurred by the schismatic Protestant denomination which now uses it, the true churches began to abandon the use of any title at all. The Church of Greenville is an authentic church of the Lord Jesus Christ: As His churches were often labeled by the regions in which they existed, without thriving under a vaunted banner, this one humbly exists as one formed within the vicinity of Greenville, South Carolina, which is nestled in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. The church itself meets south of the city, in a hamlet known as Simpsonville. We believe it would be well worth your while to visit the Church of Greenville page of our DOWNLOADABLE BOOKS section and select from their many pamphlets and articles.
