Sabbath Service Time: 12:00 PM Saturday
In one God (Elohim), Yahweh (YHWH) -the maker and sustainer of all things: (I John 5:7; Matt. 28:19; Deut. 6:4; II Cor. 13:14; John 14:10, 26).
Yahweh the Father:
Yahweh the eternal Father is the Creator, Source, Sustainer, and Sovereign of all creation. He is just and holy, merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness. The qualities and powers exhibited in the Son and the Holy Spirit are also revelations of the Father. (Gen. 1:1; Rev. 4:11; 1 Cor. 15:28; John 3:16; 1 John 4:8; 1 Tim. 1:17; Ex. 34:6, 7; John 14:9.)
The Christ (Messiah-anointed one) (Y'shua), the Son, was fully human and God/Elohim in the flesh. He is our only mediator with Yahweh. Through His life, death, and resurrection Yahweh was reconciling all creation back to Himself. (Matt. 1:20-21; Luke 1:35-36; 2:10-11). He is the only begotten Son of God/Elohim (John 1:14; 3:16, 18; I John 4:9)
WE BELIEVE in the literal, physical, bodily resurrection of the crucified body of Christ, in His literal, physical, bodily ascension into Heaven and in His present work there as High Priest, Mediator, and Advocate for us (Heb. 9:24; 10:20-21; I Tim. 2:5-6; I John 2:1, 2).
The Holy Spirit (Ruach Hakodesh) proceeds from the Father and is one with the Son and the Father. He is the agent in our conviction, regeneration, adoption, sanctification and glorification. He is our Father's ever-present self, indwelling, assuring and enabling the believer. He is the church's life and witnessing power. He bestows the love of Yahweh and makes real the lordship of Y’shua (This is our Messiah name in the Hebrew and what He was called), in the believer. In relation to the world, He is the Spirit of truth, and His instrument is the Word of Yahweh. (John 1:32-34; Acts 1:8; Acts 15:8; Rom. 6:13; 12:1-2; Eph. 5:18).
The Bible is Yahweh's written Word, The Torah (first 5 books of Old Testament) are foundational, The Tanakh ( Old Testament) and the New Testament is an extension of the Old Testament both work together to form all of scriptures they are uniquely inspired by the Holy Spirit (Ruach Hakodesh) . It bears unerring witness to Christ (Messiah), the living Word. It has authority over all human life and teaches the way of salvation and the life of faith in the Son Of Yahweh (Y'shua The Christ).(II Tim. 3:16-17; II Peter 1:21; Rev. 22:18-19).
In Yahweh's own time, Christ (Messiah), will return, the dead will be raised and His final judgment will determine the eternal destiny of every person.
God/Elohim created human beings in His own image, innocent, morally free and responsible to choose between good and evil, right and wrong. By sin humans are corrupted in their very nature so that from birth they are inclined to sin. Through faith in Christ (Messiah), their sins are forgiven and, subsequently by faith, the Holy Spirit (Ruach Hakodesh) cleanses their nature so that the holiness of God is being restored.
Salvation: The Bible says that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of Yahweh (Rom. 3:23). That means that your sins have caused a separation between you and Yahweh (Isaiah 59:2) and the result is death (Rom. 6:23) and wrath (Eph. 2:3). The only way to be saved from the wrath of Yahweh, is to be saved from it by faith in Christ (Eph. 2:8-9; Rom. 5:1). You must trust in what Christ did on the cross to forgive you of your sins and not trust anything else, not even your own sincerity or works. It is Christ (Messiah), and only Christ the Lamb of God/Elohim, who can turn away the righteous judgment of Yahweh upon the sinner. You must confess and repent (change your mind and turn in a new direction) of your sin. As without repentance you do not have eternal life. Luke 13:3, Acts 17:30 , 2 Corinthians 7:10, Acts 26:20 , Luke 5:32,
Saved by Grace through Faith:
(Ephesians 2:8-9) - "For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of Yahweh; not as a result of works, that no one should boast." (James 2:24) - "You see that a man is justified by works, and not by faith alone." Yahweh does not want a faith that is empty and hypocritical. James Chapter 2 is talking about those who "say" that they have faith but have no work. Therefore, people cannot tell if they are true believers or not, because there is no fruit. This is not a saving faith. True faith results in true works. We are justified by faith but that faith must be alive. The Law cannot save us because we are incapable of keeping it all (Matthew 19:16-17). Therefore, salvation is by grace through faith and faith will have a works that proves our Salvation.
Seventh day Sabbath is still a valid part of Yahweh’s law which Christ (Messiah) upheld and the early church kept- Luke 4:16; Mark 2:27-28; Matt 24:20; Acts 13:42; 44; 17:2; Heb. 4:4,9-10.
LAW OF GOD/Yahweh The law of Yahweh is a perfect expression of Yahweh’s love toward man. It is a good, right, and perfect system of eternal directives and principles that reflects Yahweh's character and love. Yahweh's law teaches mankind how to properly worship Yahweh, how to love his fellowman, how to live an abundant life, and how to prepare for an eternal spiritual life as a full member of the family of Yahweh. The law of Yahweh is taught in both the Old and the New Testaments. It requires both physical actions and spiritual convictions. John 14:15, 21; Romans 7:12; I John 5:2-3
BIBLICAL COVENANTS Both the Old and New Testaments record that Yahweh made certain specific "contracts" or promises called "covenants" with mankind. These covenants define the terms of Yahweh's relationship with individuals and groups in various circumstances and eras throughout mankind’s history. The best-known covenants were made with the physical nation of Israel. That covenant was re-established as the New Covenant with "better promises" and will be fully confirmed with spiritual Israel after the return of Christ. The New Covenant makes Yahweh's law even more relevant by expanding it to include one's mental attitude and spiritual intent. It also applies to the New Testament church from the time of the original apostles. Matthew 5:21-22; II Timothy 3:15-16; Hebrews 8:6-13
TEN COMMANDMENTS The Ten Commandments were revealed by Yahweh to Moses who then codified them. They were then ratified and magnified by Christ, as the perfect expression of Yahweh's love. They are the foundation of all biblical teaching and much of man’s law. They show mankind how to express love toward Yahweh and his fellowman and are consequently the focal point of Christian life. Exodus 20; Deuteronomy 5; Matthew 5:17-19; Romans 13:10; I Corinthians 7:19; Revelation 12:17; 22:14. Since the SABBATH The seventh-day Sabbath was instituted at creation. It is to be taught and kept holy in accordance with the biblical instruction. The Sabbath was reaffirmed to Israel as a part of the covenant at Sinai, and taught by Christ, who is the Messenger of the New Covenant. The keeping of the Sabbath is fundamental to a Christian's relationship with Yahweh. Genesis 2:2-3; Exodus 16; 20:8-11; 31:12-17; Mark 2:27-28; Luke 4:16
Yahweh's Feast /Holy Days:
The Scriptures teach that there are seven annual feasts and holy days, which were ordained by Yahweh to be observed as special commanded convocations. These feasts and holy days portray Yahweh's plan of salvation for mankind. The observance of these holy convocations is a sign between Yahweh and His people. God’s annual feasts and holy days were observed by His people during Old Testament times. In the New Testament, Christ’s entire ministry was centered around the spiritual meaning of these holy days. The New Testament apostolic Church faithfully observed these annual feasts and holy days. The Scriptures reveal that they will be observed by all mankind after the return of Christ.
As the holy days are annual Sabbath days, they may fall on any day of the week. When a holy day falls on a weekly Sabbath, the special observance of the annual holy day takes precedence. Yahweh's feasts and holy days are to be observed from sunset to sunset in accordance with the Calculated Hebrew Calendar as preserved by the Levitical Jews.
The seven annual feasts and holy days are as follows:
Feast or Holy Day Commanded Scriptural Date of Observance
1) Passover 14th day of the first month
2) Unleavened Bread (7 days) 15th through 21st days of the first month (the 15th & 21st are holy days)
3) Pentecost Counted annually*
4) Feast of Trumpets 1st day of the seventh month
5) Day of Atonement 10th day of the seventh month
6) Feast of Tabernacles (7 days) 15th through 21st days of the seventh month (the15th is a holy day)
7) Last Great Day 22nd day of the seventh month (a holy day)
*Fifty days are counted, beginning with the first day of the week during the Days of Unleavened Bread. The feast is observed on the fiftieth day.
Lev. 23, Ex. 23:14-17; 31:13, Ex. 12:1-20, John 7:37, Matt. 26:17-18, I Cor. 5:7-8, Acts 2:1, Acts 18:21 Acts 20:16, I Cor. 16:8, Zech. 14:16-19 ,Isa. 66:23
Dietary Laws-Because we believe the whole bible, we also believe in the Dietary laws.
Concerning Spiritual Gifts:
We Believe the gifts of the Holy Spirit as given and explained in Romans 12:4-8, 1 Cor. 12:4 and Eph. 4:11 are for today and are the supernatural and natural actions and expressions of the Holy Spirit through faith and life of the believer to both the church and the outside world.
While such gifts are certainly meant for the Body of Christ, we object to a tendency to restrict their operation as a means of evangelism and witness to the outside world. We keep in mind that all things are to be done decently and in order (1Cor 14:40) and that the person exercising the gifts of the Spirit always remains in complete control of himself and "his expressions" of the gifts (1Cor. 14:23).
We believe the gifts of the Spirit are for every believer, but that the Holy Spirit alone controls their impartation. we recognize that some "gifts" are more of a supernatural manifestation while others adapt themselves to a person's personality in service and ministry. Gifts of the Holy Spirit do not substitute for service. They are always to be exercised in great love and in the timing of wisdom under God and church leadership.
Gifts of the Holy Spirit are not to be confused with, nor are they in competition with, the fruit of the Spirit as mentioned in Galatians 5:22-23 and elsewhere. A believer should pursue both the fruit of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit. Gifts have to do with the supernatural, service and ministry. The fruit of the Holy Spirit deals with the development of Yahweh or Christ-like character. Both are essential to mature in ministry and character.
