Welcome from Pastor George W. Washington

There is an old hymn that says “Down thru the years, God’s been good to me.” This is a song that we at Metropolitan can sing loudly, because God has really been good to us.

Since November 11, 1922, we have held the vision of being a Bible-believing church. Our purpose was and still is to preach and teach the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. We are to point men, women, boys, and girls to the cross where Christ shed His blood for the sins of mankind; teaching them that faith, without works, in God’s only Son is the only way of salvation and eternal life.

We have a wonderful church family. Here we offer the believer the opportunity to grow in grace and in the knowledge of Jesus Christ.

We pray we are able to minister to you through this website.

Seven Characters of Psalms 37

For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.

The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.

The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.

Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.

A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.

For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the Lord upholdeth the righteous.

The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.

They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.

But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the Lord shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.

The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.

For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.

The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way.

Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord upholdeth him with his hand.

I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.

Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.

The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.

The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.

The Lord will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.

Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.

I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.

 

It is what men are, not so much what they think, say, or do that determines their character, relationship, and portion in the site of God.

1.  The Evildoer.“he shall be cut off” v. :9.  Those whose heart is prone to commits evil. “Bloody and decitful men shall not live out their days. ” Psa.  55:23.   Like chaff, the wind shall drive them away.

2.  The Meek.  “The meek shall inherit the earth and delight himself in the abundance of peace.”  v. :11.  The meekest Man the world ever saw “had not where to lay his head,”  But He and His followers shall yet judge the world.

3. The Wicked. “The wicked plotted aginst the just.”  v. :12.  The Lord shall laugh at him. Those who refuse to obey the call of God’s grace, and cast away the cords of his commandment from them, shall be rewrded with the laugh of God.  Psalms 2.

4.  The Righteous. “The Lord uphold the rightous.”   v. :17.  Those who bear the image of the Heavenly Father shall be upheld with His everlasting arms.

5.  The Good.  “The steps of a good man are ordered of the Lord.”  v. :23.  The Lord is “delighted in His ways.”  v. :23.   The good man seeks the highest good, and to do the greatest good.

6.  The Saint.  “The Lord ….. forsaketh not His Saints, they are preserved forever.” v. :28.  God never forsake His holy ones, since the Holiest One of all was forsaken on their behalf.  They shall be preserved for ever, for they are the heirs of eternal life.  1 Pet. 1:5.

7.  The Perfect.  “For the end of that man is peace.”  v. :37.   His end is peace because the peace of God already rules his heart.. The peace of God which passeth all understanding can never pass away. In these leading words we may easily trace a graduation of experience in the Godly life. The meekness of contrition, the righteousness of faith, the goodness of grace, the saintship of holiness, and the perfection of glory.
