Our Beliefs

We believe:

  • That the Name of our Heavenly Father is that name which is found in the original Hebrew Scriptures, YHWH, being commonly pronounced as yä·’way; spelled Yahweh.
  • That the Savior came in His Father’s name, and that His name is identified with the Fathers Name: Yahshua, which is pronounced ya·hô·shoo’·ah.  We call upon the shortened form of this name, Y’shua, pronounced Yahshua.
  • The original Scriptures is the inspired Word of Yahweh and our guide for doctrine, correction and instruction in righteousness. In addition, we accept any translation of the Scriptures which accurately translates the existing Biblical Hebrew and Greek manuscripts.
  • That Yahshua Messiah is the only (uniquely) begotten Son of Yahweh, that having no earthly father He was born of a virgin, being conceived by the Holy Spirit, and that the only atonement we have for our sins is through His shed blood on Calvary.
  • In the deity of Yahshua Messiah, that He is and has always been divine, eternally existing with the Father, and that He is not only fully deity, but fully man. We further believe Yahshua Messiah, the Son of Yahweh, is Elohim and is worthy of our worship and adoration.
  • In the Biblical plan of salvation:
    1. Repentance from our rebellious nature against Yahweh and from our specific sins as the Holy Spirit reveals them to us.
    2. Confession with our mouth that Yahshua is the personal Master of our life.
    3. That Yahshua’s death on Calvary made atonement for our sins – past, present, and future – and that Yahweh raised Him from the dead.
    4. Immersion in water in the name of Yahshua for the remission of sins.
  • That at the moment of conversion, our spirit man is reborn (from above) by the Word of Yahweh (1 Peter 1:23). We further believe that the life we receive through this new birth is eternal (John 5:24).
  • That the baptism in the Holy Spirit is a separate experience from initial salvation (justification) and is for every believer who receives it by faith according to Acts 1:4-8 and 2:4.
  • That all nine gifts of the Spirit in I Corinthians 12:8-10 are to be in operation in the congregation today and are subject to the proper order as brought out in the Scriptures.
  • That the Ten Commandments are the eternal law of Yahweh and His standard of righteousness for all ages.
  • That salvation is not now, and never has been, by any laws or works. Salvation is only by the grace of Yahweh. Nothing man can do, or have done, can in any way merit salvation. It is a free gift. An individual can only be justified in Yahweh’s sight by repenting of his sins and accepting Yahshua’s death as the atonement for sins. Yahshua’s righteousness is then put to our credit (imputed) and we are reckoned righteous in Yahweh’s sight.
  • Man cannot be saved by any effort of his own. We believe that no works or deeds of the law, no effort however commendable, no good works — whether they be many or few, sacrificial or not — can in any way justify the sinner.
  • The purpose of the law was not to save, but to reveal sin. Grace is designed to save from sin. No conflict exists between law and grace. Each has its specific functions, and neither trespasses on the functions of the other.
  • While good works are not the means of salvation, good works are inevitable results of salvation. These good works are possible only for the child of Yahweh whose life is inwrought by the Spirit of Yahweh. It is only through the working of the Holy Spirit in a believer’s life that an individual can live up to Yahweh’s standard of righteousness.
  • In the Seventh Day Sabbath as the day of rest for our physical, mental and spiritual refreshing.
  • That divine healing is for us today and is received by the operation of faith.
  • In a clean, holy life free from worldliness, unclean habits and fleshy lusts. This sanctified life is something man cannot do in and of himself. Therefore, if man is ever to live a holy life, it must be by the power of the Holy Spirit.
  • That the dietary laws of Yahweh are still the best for our physical health.
  • In a modest standard of dress for men and woman according to 1 Timothy 2:9-10.
  • That a tithe of at least 10% of our increase belongs to Yahweh. In addition, we believe in the liberal giving of our time, resources, talents and finances according to Luke 6:38.
  • In the resurrection of the dead. The righteous enjoy eternal life as the gift of Yahweh and will be raised immortal in Messiah. The unrighteous will be cast into the lake of fire as judgment for their sins (Romans 6:23) and this judgment is eternal.
  • That the ministry gifts of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers are still in existence today and are for the perfecting of the saints. We believe in the offices of Elders and Deacons. Those who fill these offices must fulfill the requirements of 1 Timothy 3 and Titus 1 and be ordained by the Apostolic ministry.
  • That each member (male and female) has a ministry for the edification of the whole body individually and corporately under the leading of the Holy Spirit according to the Scriptural order.
  • In the laying on of hands for healing (Mark 16:18) and for receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 19:6). We further believe in the laying on of hands by the Apostles and/or Eldership for the impartation of the gifts and for the confirmation of the call to the ministry.
  • That the Feasts of Yahweh {Passover and the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Pentecost (Shavuot – the Feast of Weeks), Yom Teruah (Rosh Hashana, the Feast of Trumpets), Yom Kippur (The Day of Atonement), and Sukkot (The Feast of Tabernacles)} are still to be kept today at their appointed times.
  • In the annual observance of Memorial Supper of Yahshua. In addition, we believe in partaking of the cup of blessing and unleavened loaf in communion with the body at other times as the Holy Spirit directs. We believe that this is in recognition of the New Covenant instituted by Yahshua.
  • We conclude that the Holy Spirit will continue to lead us into more truth and deeper understanding of the truths that we presently hold.
