Doctrines and Statement of Beliefs

  1. All Scriptures (both the Old and the New Testament of the Bible) are given by inspiration of the Almighty Father Yahweh, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for corrections, for instructions in righteousness that the man of Yahweh may be perfect thoroughly furnish unto all good works ( 2 Timothy 3:16)
  2. We affirm that the Heavenly Father’s Name is YHWH (Yahweh) from the tetragrammaton. He is the Supreme Ruler over everything. Worship is to be directed toward Him and He is to be venerated above all (Exodus 20:5, Deuteronomy 6:4,13, 2 Kings 17:36, Psalm 99:9, Matthew 4:10). We are commanded to use and revere Yahweh’s Name (Exodus 20:7, Leviticus 2:2, Deuteronomy 28:58, Psalm 105:1, Isaiah 52:6, Matthew 6:9, John 17:26). Yahweh is the Creator of heaven and earth. “God” is not and will never be Yahweh’s name. Yahweh has many titles in the Bible but His only name is still the same yesterday, today, and forever, which is Yahweh.
  3. We believe Yahweh son’s name is Yahshua who is our Savior (Matthew 1:21-23, Luke 1:31-33, John 5:43). We believe that Yahshua Messiah came through the Virgin Mary by the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit, which became flesh. Yahshua was baptized and tempted. He introduced the Memorial Service (1 Corinthians 12: 23-32, Matthew 3:13-17, Matthew 26:17-29, Luke 22:8-20, John 13). Yahshua was crucified on the tree and became our Passover sacrificial lamb. We believe He died and rose in three days as written in the Scriptures. “Jesus,” “Jesus Christ,” or “Lord” is not and never will be Yahshua’s name. Only through Yahshua a person can be saved.
  4. We believe the seventh day is the Sabbath, which is Saturday (Genesis 2:1-3, Exodus 20:11). The observance of the weekly Sabbath is a sign between Yahweh and His true followers, setting them apart from the other people of this world (Exodus 31:13-17). The Sabbath restricts any servile work, including cooking (Exodus 16:23, 20:8-11). We are not to buy or sell on the Sabbath, or bring any burden into our dwellings, as it is Yahweh’s day of rest (Nehemiah 10:31, 13:15-21; Jeremiah 17:21-22, 24-27). The Sabbath is a day to pray and meditate on Yahweh’s will, forsaking our own wants and desires (Isaiah 58:13-14, Acts 16:13). It is a day to come together and worship Yahweh in spirit and truth (Leviticus 23:2-3, Hebrews 10:25)
  5. We believe in keeping all the commandments of Yahweh according to Scriptures (Exodus 20:1-17)
  6. We affirm that the Bible commands the observance of all Yahweh’s laws, statutes, and judgements in both Old and New Testaments, with the exception of the sacrifices mentioned in Hebrews 9 and ritual circumcision (Deuteronomy 6:6-9, 7:6-11, Matthew 4:4, 5:17-20, Revelation 12:17, 14:12, 22:14). Through obeying Yahweh’s commandments we demonstrate our love for Yahweh (John 14:15, 21, 15:12). Faith does not annul Yahweh’s law (Romans 3:31, James 2:14-17)
  7. We affirm that the Old Testament is the foundation and basis for the New Testament. From many references made by Yahshua the Messiah and His apostles to the Old Testament Laws, Psalms, and Prophets, the continuing authority and relevance of the Old Testament is easily seen (Luke 24:44, Acts 24:14)
  8. We believe in the Feast Days of Yahweh and also observe them (Leviticus 23 chapter). These Feast days include Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, Feast of Pentecost, Feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, Feast of Tabernacles, and the Last Great Day.
  9. We believe that sin is the transgression of Yahweh’s Law (1 John 3:4). We believe that all have sinned and come short of the glory of Yahweh (Romans 3:23), and the penalty of sin is eternal death (Romans 6:23)
  10. We affirm the Holy Spirit is an invisible force of the mind and power of Yahweh, which is also bestowed upon Yahshua (Luke 24:49, John 15:26). The Holy Spirit is placed within those who are baptized into the saving Name of Yahshua the Messiah through the laying on hands of the presbytery (Acts 2:38, 5:32, 8:17, 19:6; Timothy 4:14, 2 Timothy 1:6). Through this power a person receives Yahweh’s strength to overcome sin and live a repentant life. The Holy Spirit is the acting power by which Yahweh and Yahshua accomplish their will. The Holy Spirit is only given to people who has true love and fear of Yahweh and obey His commandments.
  11. We affirm that upon true repentance a person is to be baptized into the saving name of Yahshua the Messiah at the scriptural age of accountability starting at 20 (Matthew 3:13-17, Acts 2:38, 4:12, 8:16, 10:43, 19:5; Romans 6:3). Baptism is by complete backward submersion in water. Through baptism we become a new man, free of our old carnal nature (Romans 6:3-6, 7:6, Colossians 2:12, 1 Peter 3:21). There is only one true and correct baptism (Ephesians 4:5), uniting all under Yahshua the Messiah.
  12. We affirm that love is a critical aspect of the true believer’s life. Yahweh requires that we all demonstrate our love for Him and our fellow man. The two greatest commandments are loving Yahweh with all our hearts, and loving other people as ourselves (Leviticus 19:18, Deuteronomy 6:4-7, Matthew 19:19, 22:34-40, James 2:8). Love is actively showing unselfish and outgoing care and love for Yahweh and our fellow man. Without love we have no hope of eternal life (1 Corinthians 13)
  13. We affirm that Yahweh’s dietary food laws were not annulled in the New Testament, but remain for Yahweh’s new covenant believers (Leviticus 11, Deuteronomy 14, Isaiah 65:4, 66:17; Acts 10:14, 2 Corinthians 6:17)
  14. We affirm that only men are permitted to speak before the assembly, and that apostle Paul admonishes women to remain silent during formal worship services (1 Corinthians 14:34-35, 1 Timothy 2:11-12)
  15. We affirm that the Bible does not support an ever-burning hellfire, but that the wicked who are placed in the lake of fire (Gehenna) will be destroyed quickly and completely, and will not burn forever (2 Thessalonians 1:7-10, Malachi 4:1-3, Psalm 37:20-22, Jude 7). In the Old Testament, “Hell” is the Hebrew for sheol, which means grave or pit; the New Testament counterpart is the greek hades, which also means, grave.
  16. We believe in the coming resurrection of the dead as Yahshua being the first fruit from the dead (1 Corinthians 15, Revelation 20). Some people will be resurrected to spirit beings, while others to mortal beings and will be given a last chance to hear the words of Yahweh and, if they’re worthy, obtain eternal life in the coming 1,000 years reign of Yahshua the Messiah.
  17. We affirm that satan the devil is a spirit being who was cast out of heaven because of his pride (Isaiah 14:12-20, Ezekiel 28: 13-19, Luke 10:18, Revelation 12:7-9). Satan will be eventually destroyed (Ezekiel 28:16, Romans 16:20, Hebrews 2:14). Satan is the God of this present world (2 Corinthians 4:4) and satan is a thief who come to kill, steal, and destroy (John 10:10). To deceive people, satan transforms himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14). Satan the devil also walks about like a roaring lion, seeking people whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8)
  18. We affirm the Bible explain the tithes or tenths (Leviticus 27:32) were used for three purposes: to support the Levitical ministry (Numbers 18:21), to provide for Yahweh’s people to observe His commanded festivals (Deuteronomy 14:22-27) and to help the poor (Deuteronomy 14:28-29). It has amazing promise of blessing (for obedience) and a curse (for disobedience) associated with it for both the peoples and the nations.
