I believe in the God of the Bible

I believe the Holy Bible to be the Word of God. I believe in its History, Covenants, and Prophecy.

I believe in the Bible account of Creation.

I believe in Jesus Christ as the only begotten Son of God, the Word made flesh.

I believe Christ died for us; also, that He was raised from the dead.

I believe in the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ on Calvary; not only for Israel, but for the sins of the world.

I believe Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven.

I believe in the literal return of Jesus Christ when He shall take the Throne of David and rule on earth for the prophetic thousand years known as the millennium.

I believe that "God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life" (John 3:16).

I believe in the Holy Spirit and His mission.

I believe salvation is by grace through faith, and it is the gift of God, and not of works. It must be preached and it is necessary for all.

I believe that water baptism is ordained of God for all that believe.

I believe in the ordinance of the communion as established by Jesus Christ.

I believe in prayer, and whatever the immediate purpose, prayer should be that God's Will be done on earth. We must forgive to be forgiven. The Holy Spirit will help us to pray. If we ask in faith and in the Name of Jesus Christ, He will hear.

I believe that God chose out a special people unto Himself to be His servants and those servants were to be the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob called "Israel".

I believe the Bible with God's law, statutes and judgments was given to Israel and through Israel's prophets came the inspired Scriptures.

I believe civil law was given by God to Israel. The law was given for Israel's good. God commands us to obey civil law.

I believe that one day out of seven is the Sabbath of the Lord and that Israel was to keep it as a sign between Israel and the Lord.
I believe Christ became our Sabbath. There remaineth therefore a rest (Gr. Sabbatismos) to the people of God).

I believe Israel was to be punished if God's laws for the nation were disregarded.

I believe that the New Covenant was made with Israel; which meant Israel was to become Christian and that Jesus confirmed that Covenant.

I believe that Israel was promised redemption; that Jesus Christ came to Israel; that He was recognized as the Redeemer of Israel, and His death and resurrection accomplished that redemption.

I believe that after Christ's death and resurrection Israel was to be called by a new name. Israel was not to be remembered by her old name; and, the new name was to be the Lord's Name which would be CHRISTIAN (Christ man).

I believe that each individual, of Israel or not, must be born of water and of the Spirit to be a Christian.

I believe in an existing Satan, who is called the serpent; who has power with devils and men; who has a people who will not hear God, some of whom deceive people as "ministers of righteousness".

I believe that Jesus Christ has broken the power of Satan and His Name makes devils impotent against Christians.


I believe that the Lord Jesus Christ along with His followers are at battle with Satan and his followers: And that Jesus Christ is the victor in this "battle".

I believe in the resurrection of the dead as prophesied; as proven; as taught by the Scripture and that the resurrected will reign with Christ for ever.

I believe the seventh trump sounds after the tribulation. Paul wrote his second letter to the Thessalonians because he knew the first had been misunderstood, concerning Christ's second return. Paul then gives two signs which will be present when the Day of the Lord comes. Those signs being the apostasy and the man of lawlessness. Neither of these signs were present at that time.

Apostasy means giving up or renouncing of one's professed principles, or faith. This will come to pass when the religious lamb (false messiah) of Revelation 13:11 comes to pass. He will look like the Lamb of God, but his voice is of the dragon, for he is the great dragon, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan. When the false christ stands in the holy place performing in the sight of Christians, the pretribulation-rapture-Christian shall think it is Christ coming to rapture them away. It is the duty of the elect to stand and witness in the synagogues, allowing the Holy Spirit to give His Message to the world through you.

Christ is your spiritual Husband. You should remain a spiritual virgin until He returns. For Christ Himself said; "Woe to them that are with child in those days!". If your spiritual Husband has been on a long journey and finds you with child when He returns, then you have been impregnated (deceived) with the mark of the false messiah, and worshipped Satan in the last hour.
