Statement of Faith

YAHWEH The Father is the Supreme Deity, the Creator and Sustainer of the heavens and earth and all things therein. (Gen. 1:1, Isa. 40:26, Isa. 44:24) Yahweh hath both raised up Yahshua, and will also raise up us by his own power.

Yahshua the Messiah is the only begotten Son of Yahweh, and was sent from Yahweh to be our Redeemer and Savior. Yahshua was with Yahweh at Creation. (Pre-existence – John 1:1, John 17:5-24, John 3:31). Yahshua was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Miriam.

Yahshua died for our sins according to the scriptures; and was buried, and he rose again the third day. (1 Cor. 15:3, 4, Matthew 12:40) “For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.” (KJV)

SALVATION is through the acceptance of Yahshua the Messiah, who died for our sins. Sin is transgression of the law and without shedding of blood there is no remission of sins. “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved.” Mark 16:16. Acts 2:38, “REPENT and be BAPTIZED every one of you in the name of Yahshua the Messiah for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.” (Baptism by immersion in water.) Matthew 24:13, “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.” Rev. 21:7, “He that overcometh shall inherit all things.”

HOLY SPIRIT … We must be born of the water and of the spirit. Yahshua said if He departed, He would send the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, and the Comforter would teach all things. (John 14:26, John 15:26 and 16:7) Yahweh gives the Holy Spirit to those who Obey Him. (Acts 5:32).

The Bible is the divinely inspired Word of Yahweh. The Holy Scriptures are able to make us wise unto salvation through faith in Yahshua the Messiah. 11 Timothy 3:16, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of Yahweh, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” (Deut. 12:32 and Proverbs 30:6 – add not to the word.)

Yahshua came to fulfill the law, not to destroy it. The Ten Commandments are still in effect today. John 14:15, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.” Love Yahweh with all your heart, soul, and mind and love your neighbor as yourself. (Matthew 22:36-40.) Only the ordinances that were against us or contrary to us were taken away. (Col. 2:14.)

The Sabbath is a sign between Yahweh and the Children of Israel (Ex. 31:13-17, Ezekiel 20:20). The seventh day Sabbath is from sundown Friday night until sundown Saturday night. Genesis 1:5, “And Yahweh called the light day, and the darkness He called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.” Yahweh finished the heavens and earth and everything in them in six days, and rested the seventh day and blessed it and sanctified it. (Gen. 2:1-3.)

Lev. 23 lists the various feasts or set times that we are to observe, including the Sabbath, Passover-Memorial Supper – in the fourteenth day of the first month at even. The three feasts – Feast of Unleavened Bread, Firstfruits (Pentecost), Feast of Tabernacles and the seven annual Sabbaths (holy-convocations).

The evil one (known as the adversary, Satan or the Devil) exists as a being. (Rev. 20:2-10, 1 Pet. 5:8.)

Clean and unclean foods, Lev. 11 and Deut. 14. Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. (1 Cor. 6:19.)

All the tithe (tenth) of the land is Yahweh’s. (Lev. 27:30.)

Yahshua is in heaven and is sitting on the right hand of Yahweh. When Yahshua returns, the trumpet shall sound, the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. (1 Cor. 15:52.)
