Welcome to EarnestlyContending.com
when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation,
it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you
that ye should earnestly contend for the faith
which was once delivered unto the saints.
Our Purpose: This website groups together several Independent, Fundamental, Bible Believing, King James only, Baptist websites with the purpose of bringing honour and glory to the only one deserving: our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him. Colossians 3:17
And He is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have the preeminence. Colossians 1:18
The two ways we seek to achieve this are:
1. By bringing the good news of salvation to the lost (that is those who have not accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour and do not know for sure that if they were to die today, they would go to Heaven).
And He said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:15
2. By freely making available studies, poems and stories, and more, for Christians to be strengthened and drawn closer to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28:18-20
Who We Are: Jerry Bouey and Angela Trenholm are members of Peopleâ€™s Baptist Church, 710 Lawson Ave. Kelowna, British Columbia, Â Canada, V1Y 6S8 Tel: (250) 763-2121 Pastor Wes Hutchens
Jerry Bouey: Hereâ€™s a direct quote about Jerry from a friend: â€œWhat I see in Jerry is a strong desire to know and understand the word of God, with a zeal to share it, using it often to correct, rebuke, teach, admonish, edify and encourage â€¦revealing apostasy, false doctrine and dispensing Godly wisdom. A warrior for Christ who finds himself battle weary upon occasion, but faithful none the less. A blessing to this site and a superb poet. His writings convey good solid doctrine in well written prose. A much appreciated member of the body of Christ. (Ohâ€¦.this is too sappyâ€¦. Â â€¦too bad its all true. ) â€œ(Grace2U, Moderator, OnlineBaptist.com)

Angela Trenholm: She is the home-schooling mother of six mostly charming children, and the wife of Lowell, an industrious man who has no end of household projects on the go (and he finishes them too!). She is the brains behind this joint venture and has tremendous talents with graphics and webpage layouts. I taught her basic HTML and she taught me how to improve my WebPages! She is also my main source of critique for my poems and pages on my poetry site. She definitely has a heart for God and His Word, and this is one of many avenues she is using to share the Gospel of salvation with the lost world around us. (As described by Jerry)
The Trenholms of Kelowna: The Trenholmâ€™s personal family website, with lots of great stories, poems (many of Angelaâ€™s personal ones as well), testimonies, Veteranâ€™s tribute, Biographies, Psalms of David in Metre, Homeschool links, recipes, and more. The Bible studies section is geared especially, but not exclusively, to women. If you are a part of the Trenholmâ€™s family or are personal friends, please contact the Trenholms about the private e-group where you can interact and share personal photos, files and so on.

Angela’s Blog – This has taken over parts of Â “Trenholms of Kelowna”. It contains mostly Angela’s devotions & poetry, but with a few other illustrations or songs by others.
Apples of Gold – Poetry, songs, stories, biographies, and illustrations by others.
1744 Bible Martin (French): Since Angela is French Canadian, organizing this section of the website was even more so a labor of love. This collection of the Martin Bible in web-page format was created with the hope that Godâ€™s Word in the French language (based on the Textus Receptus) could be liberally distributed. Each individual book/chapter are easily accessible from the general index.
