Our purpose is to establish and maintain a place for the worship of Yahweh, the Almighty God, our Heavenly Father; to provide for the fellowship of those who have been reconciled to Yahweh through a personal faith in and reliance upon Yahshua, the Anointed One, as Savior and Lord; to provide a place where Holy Spirit may be recognized and welcomed to manifest Himself by and through whatever gifts, and signs, and wonders He chooses; to provide for the discipline of each person toward maturity in Christ; and to assume our share of the responsibility and the privilege of propagating the Gospel of the Kingdom of Yahweh into all the world. We who are the present Body of Believers joined to the leadership and vision of this house, having demonstrated the same by our personal and individual testimony of faith in Yahshua, by having been baptized in His name for the remission of sins, by our faithfulness to attend its meetings, participate in its ministries, and support it faithfully with our tithes and offerings do hereby proclaim and affirm that this is our purpose.
This church shall accept the Word of Yahweh, the Holy Bible, as His revealed will, the rule of faith and practice; such acceptance does not preclude nor negate the on-going Word of Holy Spirit, so long as such revelations are consistent with Scripture and are set forth as apostolic doctrine. The following statements of faith are set forth to make clear our understanding in these basic areas of belief and are not intended as an all-inclusive statement of doctrine.
"I am Yahweh and there is no other. Besides Me, there is no God."
The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of Yahweh and the revelation of Yahweh to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct. (2 Timothy. 3:15 17; 1 Thessalonians. 2:13, 2 Peter 1:21)
The one true God has revealed Himself as, Yahweh, the eternally self-existent “I AM”, the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10 11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22)
Yahshua is the eternal son of Yahweh. The Scriptures declare:
• His virgin birth (Matthew 1:23; Luke 1:31,35)
• His sinless life (Hebrews. 7:26; I Peter 2:22)
• His miracles (Acts 2:22; 10:38)
• His substitutionary work on the cross (1 Corinthians 15:3; 2 Corinthians 5:21)
• His bodily resurrection from the dead (Matthew 28:6; Luke 24:39; 1 Corinthians 15:4)
• His exaltation to the right hand of Yahweh (Acts 1:9, 11; 2:33; Philippians 2:9 11; Hebrews 1:3)
Man was created good and upright; for Yahweh said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from Yahweh. (Genesis 1:26, 27; 2:17; 3:6; Romans 5:12 19)
Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Yahshua, the Son of Yahweh.
Conditions to Salvation:
Salvation is received through repentance toward Yahweh and faith toward Yahshua. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of Yahweh according to the hope of eternal life. (Luke 24:47; John 3:3; Romans 10:13 15; Ephesians 2:8; Titus 2:11; 3:5 7)
The Evidences of Salvation:
The inward evidence of salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit (Romans 8:16). The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness. (Ephesians 4:24; Titus 2:12)
The Baptism With Holy Spirit. (Acts 1:8, 2:4, 2:38; Galatians 3) See Statement #7
Baptism in Water:
The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded in the Scriptures. All who repent and believe on Yahshua as Savior and Lord are to be baptized. Thus they declare to the world that they have died with Yahshua and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life. (Matthew 28:19; Mark 16:16; Acts 10:47 48; Romans 6:4)
Holy Communion is the symbol expressing our participation in the divine nature of Yahshua. (2 Peter 1:4); a memorial of his suffering and death. (1 Corinthians 11:26); and a prophecy of His second coming. (1 Corinthians 11:26); and is enjoined on all Believers “till He comes.” It is the celebration of the New Covenant as established by Yahshua Himself. Holy Communion is the daily partaking of Yahshua by yielding to Holy Spirit’s guidance.
All Believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of Yahshua. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4,8; 1 Corinthians 12:1 31). This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the experience of the new birth (Acts 8:12 17; 10:44 46; 11:14 16; 15:7 9). With the baptism in the Holy Spirit comes such experiences as an overflowing fullness of the Spirit (John 7:37 39; Acts 4:8), a deepened reverence for Yahweh (Acts 2:43; Hebrews 12:28), an intensified consecration to Yahweh and dedication to His work (Acts 2:42), and a more active love for Yahshua, for His Word and for the lost (Mark 16:20).
The Evidence of the Baptism in the Holy Spirit:
The baptism of Believers in the Holy Spirit is witnessed by the initial physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of Yahweh gives them utterance (Acts 2:4). The speaking in tongues in this instance is the same
Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil, and of dedication unto Yahweh (Romans 12:1 2; 1 Thessalonians 5:23; Hebrews 13:12). The Scriptures teach a life of “…holiness without which no man shall see the Lord.” (Hebrews 12:14). By the power of the Holy Spirit we are able to obey the command; “Be holy, for I am holy.” (I Peter 1:15 16).
Sanctification is realized in the Believer by recognizing his identification with Yahshua, in His death and resurrection, and by faith reckoning daily upon the fact of that union, and by offering every faculty continually to the dominion of the Holy Spirit (Romans 6:1 11, 13; Galatians 2:20; Philippians 2:12 13; 1 Peter 1:5).
The church is the body of Yahshua, the habitation of Yahweh through the Spirit, with divine appointments for the fulfillment of its great commission. Each Believer, born of the Spirit, is an integral part of the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven (Ephesians 1:22 23, 2:22; Hebrews 12:23). One does not join the church; each person who truly believes in Yahshua is baptized into the Body of Christ–the Church–by Holy Spirit.
A divinely called and Scripturally ordained fivefold ministry of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers (Ephesians 4:11 16) has been provided by our Lord for the threefold purpose of leading the Church in: (1) Evangelization of the world (Mark 16:15 20), (2) Worship of Yahweh (John 4:23 24), (3) Building a body of saints being perfected in the image of His Son (Ephesians 4:11 16).
Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement and is the privilege of all Believers (Isaiah 53:4 5; Matthew 8:16 17; James 5:14 16).
The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Yahshua and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of Yahshua is the blessed hope of the Church (1 Thessalonians 4:16 17; Romans 8:23; Titus 2:13; 1 Corinthians 15:51 52). Because no one knows the time of Yahshua’s personal return, and because the setting of times for His appearing have proved to be mistaken, and because such incidents tend to breed disappointment, embarrassment, confusion, and skepticism, we choose to avoid speculating about such, choosing rather to focus on fulfilling His purposes for us.
There will be a final judgment in which the wicked dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the devil and his angels, the beast and the false prophet, will be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. (Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43 48; Revelation 19 20; 20:11 15; 21:8).
“We, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness.” (2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:22).
