Statement Of Belief
STATEMENT OF BELIEF
We believe in the only MIGHTY ONE, the Creator of shamayim (heaven) and olam (earth) whose name is YHWH(YAHWEH), DEBARIM - DEUTERONOMY 6:4 Shema (Hear), O Yisrael: YHWH our ABBA is Echad (one) Sovereign Ruler: ( 6:5 ) And you shall love YHWH your ABBA (Father) with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might. We believe that the only true eternal personal NAMES of the ABBA (Father) and THE BEN (Son) are YHWH(Hebrew or Palio )(pronounced YAHWEH) and THE BEN (SON) YAHSHUA (YHWH IS OUR SALVATION). While the spelling is not important, the usage is. His name in the proper transliteration will give us the phonic of YAH-WAY which is pronounced YAHWEH. We stick to strict adherences to the pronunciation of HIS NAME.
YAHSHUA (SALVATION OF YAHWEH)
We believe that YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH is THE BEN (the Son) of YHWH, THE ha MESSIYAH (the ANOINTED ONE of YHWH, the Eternal One in Whom all the fullness of YHWH dwells in bodily form; HE is the WORD of YHWH who was made flesh and lived among us, and we beheld HIS HONOR, the HONOR of the uniquely BEGOTTEN on of YHWH, full of UN-MERITED LOVE and TRUTH. (YOCHANAN - JOHN 1:1-14, QOLESAYAH-COLOSSIANS 2:9)
¨ YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH is the BEN ADAM (SON of YHWH) MISHLE - MISHLE-PROVERBS 30:4 Who has ascended up into heaven, or descended? who has gathered the wind in HIS fists? who has bound the waters in a garment? who has established all the ends of the earth? what is HIS NAME, and what is HIS SON'S NAME, if you can tell?
¨ MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 4:3 And when the tempter came to HIM, he said, If you are THE BEN (SON) of YHWH, command that these stones be made bread.
¨ MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 27:43 HE trusted in YHWH; let HIM deliver HIM now, if HE will have HIM: for HE said, I am the SON of YHWH.
¨ MARKUS - MARK And unclean spirits, when they saw him, fell down before HIM, and cried, saying, You are the Son of YAHWEH.
¨ LUKAS - LUKE 1:35 And the malak answered and said unto her, Ha KODESH RUACH shall come upon you, and the power of the HIGHEST shall overshadow you: therefore also that KADOSH thing which shall be born of you shall be called the SON of YHWH.
RUACH HA KODESH(SET APART SPIRIT)
We believe that the Ruach Ha Kodesh indwells all true believers to lead, guide, teach, comfort, and empower us to live a righteous life in all THE TRUTH of YHWH (Yochanan 14:26, 2 Timtheous 1:7). The Baptism of Ha Kodesh Ruach and fire is a gift from YHWH promised by YAHSHUA to all Believers and is received subsequent to the New Birth. (Matt , John 14:16-17). We believe in the operation of all gifts of the Ruach as enumerated in YHWH’S WORD. We embrace all the ministry of the Ruach Ha Kodesh (The Spirit)
YOCHANAN - JOHN 14:26 But the Comforter, which is Ruach Ha Kodesh, whom the ABBA will send in MY NAME, HE shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said to you.
¨ TIMTHEOUS -2- TIMOTHY 1:7 For YHWH has not given us Ha Ruach of fear; but of power, and of ahava (love), and of a sound mind.
¨ MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but HE that comes after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: HE shall baptize you with Ha Kodesh Ruach, and with fire.
¨ YOCHANAN - JOHN If you love me, keep MY mitzvoth (commandments).
YOCHANAN - JOHN And I will ask the ABBA, and HE shall give you another Comforter, that HE may abide with you forever;
YOCHANAN - JOHN Even Ha Ruach of Emet (truth); whom the world cannot receive, because it sees HIM not, neither knows HIM: but you know HIM; for HE dwells with you, and shall be in you.
We believe that the TORAH (five books of Moshe) is a comprehensive summary of YHWH’S foundational Commandments and Instructions, as found in the Scripture Covenants. (Ex 19 and 20, Deut 5, Jer 31:31-34, Heb , Matt -19). Obedience to the commands of the TORAH are required of all believers, for yeshua and for relationship with YHWH and our fellow man. When one comes to the know of the TORAH he/she will know that this is the power of YHWH to govern our lives.
We believe that the SCRIPTURE consisting of TORAH, Prophets and Writings (Tanakh) and the Renewed Covenant are the Inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of YHWH. (II Tim. 3:16, I Thes. 2:13, II Peter 1:21). We believe that YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH taught all HIS true followers both Yehudim and non-Yehudim that all the precepts of written TORAH are eternally binding. YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH, never ever negated the TORAH, and expects and commands us to follow the TORAH (Mattithyahu -18), so as to continually renew our love for HIM by our obedience. And that is based on this verse in SCRIPTURE: TEHILLIM - PSALMS 119:142 Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and your TORAH is the truth. We believe that the TRUTH of the TORAH will never change as the righteousness of YHWH will never change.
¨ SHEMOTH - EXODUS 19th and 20th chapters gives us the details of YHWH'S instructions.
¨ DEBARIM - DEUTERONOMY 5th chapter gives us great understanding of YHWH'S instruction.
We believe that "all have sinned and come short of the honor of YHWH" ROMIYAH - ROMANS For all have sinned, and come short of the splendor of YHWH. YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH, the Son of YHWH, was manifested to undo the work of Shatan, gave HIS life, and shed HIS blood to redeem and restore man back to YHWH. (Rom , Rom , Rom , I John 3:8). Yeshua is a gift of YHWH to man, it can not be separate from works and the TORAH, and is made operative by Ha Kodesh Ruach through emunah in YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH, producing works acceptable to YHWH. One may not earn, merit or keep this eternal Yahshua by his own efforts. A new creation is the work of YHWH alone. (Eph 2:8-9, Rom 5 and 6). Careful study of the SCRIPTURE listed here will give you a better understanding of YHWH dealing with the house of Yisrael.
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and unsaved. The redeemed to everlasting joy in the presence of YHWH and the lost to eternal damnation and separation form YHWH. Without the RESURRECTION there is no hope in this life. This is a strong tenet of our DOCTRINE.
¨ YOCHANAN - JOHN Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear HIS voice, YOCHANAN - JOHN And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
¨ QORINTYAH -1- CORINTHIANS Now if Ha MESSIYAH be preached that HE rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead? QORINTYAH -1- CORINTHIANS But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Ha MESSIYAH not risen:
¨ GILYAHNA - REVELATION 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. GILYAHNA - REVELATION 20:6 Blessed and Kodesh is he that has part in the first resurrection: on such the second death has no power, but they shall be kohenim of YHWH and of YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
¨ ROMIYAH - ROMANS 1:3 Concerning HIS SON YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH our Master, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; ROMIYAH - ROMANS 1:4 And declared to be the SON of YHWH with power, according to Ha Ruach of pure set apartness, by the resurrection from the dead:
In obedience to YHWH'S command to assemble ourselves together to worship, HIM, we seeks to provide a venue for all believers in YAHSHUA Ha MESSIYAH to worship YHWH in Ruach and Emet. We understand that returning to the Ancient Paths of the SCRIPTURE often results in rejection by family and friends who do not understand at this time. We offer refuge and support as the extended family of YHWH to all TRUE BELIEVERS. The family function is given by YHWH as an example ofHIS relationship desires with HIS creation and thus is a vital aspect of our congregation. We seek to provide for the entire family as we grow together in knowledge and wisdom. YAHSHUA tells us who the family of YHWH is:
¨ YOCHANAN - JOHN But the hour comes, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the ABBA in Ruach and in emet: for the ABBA seeks such to worship HIM. YOCHANAN - JOHN 4:24 YHWH is a RUACH (Spirit): and they that worship HIM must worship HIM in the Ruach and in the emet (truth). We seek to provide a place of study, fellowship, encouragement and support for the TRUE BELIEVERS seeking to “Come out of
¨ MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW But HE answered and said to him that told HIM, Who is MY mother? and who are MY brothers? MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW And he stretched forth his hand toward HIS disciples, and said, Behold MY mother and MY brothers! MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW For whosoever shall do the will of MY ABBA which is in heaven, the same is MY brother, and sister, and mother.
YHWH has called us to be in unity with HIM and those that respond to HIS call upon their lives, the remnant of all Yisrael. We are to separate ourselves from the things of this world as we offer ourselves as living sacrifices to YHWH alone.
We do teach a submerging into water as YAHSHUA commanded the disciples to go into all nations and submerge into water. Also the infilling of YHWH'S RUACH. There is only ONE NAME that we are immersed in and that is THE NAME of YHWH. In that NAME you will find the authority of HIS SON'S NAME, YAHSHUA that gave us the authority by the power of Ha KODESH to fulfill this COMMAND given by YAHSHUA. In order to obey what is stated below you must know THE ABBA'S NAME. The word "father", or "son" is not a NAME. We must know the ABBA'S NAME. HIS NAME is YHWH pronounced YAHWEH.
¨ MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 28:18 And YAHSHUA came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given unto ME in heaven and in earth. MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 28:19 Go you therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them IN THE NAME of the ABBA, and of the SON, and of the RUACH Ha KODESH: MATTITYAHU - MATTHEW 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. So be it, May it be fulfilled. commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. So be it, May it be fulfilled.
We believe that nowhere in SCRIPTURE that YHWH commanded us to change the SHABBAT from the seventh day to the first day of the week cycle of HIS creation. SCRIPTURE never in anyway dismiss the SHABBAT from the Commandments of YHWH. Shabbat begins sunset on the 6th day of the week (Friday) to Sunset on the 7th day(Saturday)
YHWH commands us to keep the Shabbat holy. It is a celebration of His completed work of creation. It is also the seal that sets us apart (sanctifies). Physically resting on the Shabbat is a show of obedience to the Father. “ ...If you do, you will find delight in Adonai...” Yeshiyahu (Isaiah 58:13-14.) Even Yahshua kept the Sabbath by attending and teaching in the synagogue.
¨ SHEMOTH - EXODUS 20:8 Remember the SHABBAT DAY, to keep it SET APART.
¨ SHEMOTH - EXODUS 31:14 You shall keep the SHABBAT therefore; for it is KODESH unto you: every one that defiles it shall surely be put to death: for whosoever does any work therein, that soul shall be cut off from among his people.
¨ DEBARIM-DEUTERONOMY Keep the SHABBAT DAY to SET it APART, as YHWH your ABBA has commanded you.
KEEPING THE 7 MAJOR FEAST DAYS OF YHWH
The Feast of Passover – Verses 5-14. It celebrated
The Feast of Unleavened Bread- Verses 6-8. This followed immediately after Passover and is often counted as part of the Passover (which lasted one day) While this feast lasted seven days, The absence of leaven symbolized complete consecration and devotion to The Most High God. Today’s Significance: Unleavened Bread is a Form of Yahshua 1 Cor.11:24;John6:51
Feast of the First Fruits- Verses 9-14 This feast marked the beginning of the harvest on the “day after the Sabbath” The purpose of this feast was to dedicate and consecrate the first fruits of the barley harvest. Today’s Significance: Yahshua was the First Fruits of “them that slept” were raised “the morning after Sabbath” Which is the first day of the week (1 Cor. -23)
The Feast of Pentecost- Verses 15-22. The purpose of this feast was to declare and consecrate the first fruits of the Wheat harvest. Today’s Significance: Note that this feast occurred 50 days (the word Pentecost comes from the Greek word meaning fiftieth) After the feast of First Fruits. After Yahshua’s resurrection he was on earth 40 days (Acts 1:3) before he ascended. The disciples waited in the upper room until the Day of Pentecost was fully come (10 days) and on the anniversary of this feast the Ruach Ha kodesh came upon them and the church was born. (Acts 2:1)
The Feast Of Trumpets (The Day of Trumpets/Rosh Hashanah) –Verses 23-25 This is New Years Day for
The Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur/Yom Teru’ah)-Verses 26-32. The greatest day for
The Feast of Tabernacles –Verses 33-44 This was the completion of the harvest and was the final religious convocation of the year. It is called “Booths” in King James. It looked back on their Exodus from
Chanukah, by the way, was not given by God on
WE BELIEVE THAT ALL THE FEAST DAYS ARE IMPORTANT TO YHWH AND MUST BE KEPT IN COMPLYING WITH THE TORAH TEACHING OF YHWH.
The Bible rates health right near the top of the list in importance (3 John 1:2). Man's mind, spiritual nature, and body are all interrelated and interdependent. Yahweh gave health rules because He knows what is best for the human body (Deuteronomy , Exodus ). A Hebrew should eat and drink all to the glory of Yahweh - using only "that which is good" (Isaiah 55:2, 1Cor.10:31). If Yahweh says a thing is not fit to eat, He must have a good reason. He is not a harsh dictator, but a loving Father. All His counsel is for our good, always. So if Yahweh withholds a thing from us, it is because it is not a good thing for us (Psalm 84:11). The diet Yahweh gave people at the beginning of Creation was fruit, vegetables, grains, nuts, and seeds (Genesis , ; ).
SCRIPTURE affirms that YHWH'S dietary food Laws were not annulled in the Re-New Covenant, but remain for HIS Re-New Covenant believers as well in this dispensation Nothing defiling or unclean will be permitted in Yahweh's kingdom (Revelation 21:27, Ezekiel 11:21). The use of improper foods defile a person (Daniel 1:8). Choosing their "own ways" and that in which Yahweh "delighted not" may possibly cost people their eternal salvation (Isaiah 66:3-4), especially eating pork and swine's flesh (Isaiah 66:15-17), because it's considered rebellion against Yahweh.
Sincere Hebrews will bring their lives into harmony with Yahweh's rules, because they love Him (2 Cor.7:1, 1 John 3:3, John ). Yahweh's counsel and rules are always for our good, just as good parents' rules and counsel are best for their children. Yahweh holds us accountable (James ). The reason for restricting our diet is because we are the holy children of Yahweh (Deut.14:1-3).
SCRIPTURE affirms that YHWH commanded us to wear Tzitzit NUMBERS 15:37-41
And YHWH spoke unto Moses, saying, 38. Speak to the Israelite people and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue: 39. And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of YHWH , and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring: 40. That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your Elohim. 41. I am YHWH your Elohim , which brought you out of the land of Egypt, to be your Elohim: I am YHWH your Elohim.
It has tremendous significance and a lesson for our lives today. In order to make sense of this regulation, we need to see the cultural picture behind putting tzitzit( pronounced ZEET-zeet) on the corners of the garment. In ancient times, garments were woven and decorated to show the person's identity and status in society. The hem and tassels of the outer robe were particularly important, with the hem being symbolic of the owner's identity and authority. In the story of Saul, the cutting of the hem is a prophetic picture of Yahweh's removing him from his reign (1 Sam , 1 Sam 24:4). In legal contracts written in clay, instead of a signature, the corner of the hem would be pressed into the clay to leave an impression.
On the hem were attached the Tzitzit (plural, tzitziot), which were a visual reminder of one of the most important promises that Yahweh made at
'Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own possession among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine; and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.' (Ex. 19:6)
