BASIC BELIEFS

1
There is one true Deity, a personal, spiritual being, the creator of all things. That His name is YaHWeH (pronounced - yaw-oo-ay), and that we are to worship Him alone; Deut. 6:4, Isa. 42:8, etc. That He is omnipotent, omniscient, eternal, infinite in wisdom, righteousness, justice, goodness, truth, and mercy; That He can be wrathful and Jealous; He is Righteous, unchangeable, and everywhere present by His representative, the Set Apart Spirit. Psalms 139:7 .  Due to the fact that the personal Name of The Creator was used in the "authorized" canon nearly 7,000 times, we believe that we are to use His Name and not substitutes like "L-rd," or "G-d."
2
There is one Messiah, YaHshua/YaHushua/YaHushuah, the Son of the Eternal Father, who was the firstborn of all creation, was with YaHWeH in the beginning and was the one by whom YaHWeH created all things, and by whom they do consist; that He took on Him the nature of the seed of Abraham for the redemption of our fallen human race; that He dwelt among men, full of grace and truth, lived our example, died our sacrifice, and was raised for our justification. He ascended on high to be our means of redemption in the sanctuary in Heaven where, with His own blood, He makes atonement for our sins; which atonement so far from being made on the stake, which was by the offering of the sacrifice, is the portion of His work as a priest, according to the example of the Levitical priesthood, which foreshadowed and prefigured the ministry of our Savior in Heaven. Leviticus 16; Hebrews 8:4, 5; 9:6, 7 etc.
3
The Scriptures were given by inspiration of YaHWeH, containing revelations of His will to man, and are infallible rules of faith and practice.  That the Scriptures are more extent than what is contained in the "authorized" canon versions and that the Scriptures must be interpreted as closely to what was originally intended.
4
We as believers, are to follow the ordinances of the scriptures, including (but not limited to) eating kosher food, males growing beards, keeping the Set Apart Days, keeping the SHabbat (as well as all of the 10 Statutes), etc. We also believe that the general principle of patriarchal authority. This may be perpetually observed by the covering of the woman’s head, but that the style or form of covering may be varied to include hats, scarves, small pieces of cloth, etc., rather than being restricted to the precise kind of veil worn in the early-centuries, however, this does not have Scriptural commands to do so. Men are to wear the four cornered garment (Tallit), with the fringes (Tzitzioth), when out in the general public, which is Scripturally commanded, Numbers 15:37-41.
5
Baptism/Mikvahot/Tabal is an ordinance of the Messiahs assembly, to follow faith and repentance, an ordinance by which we commemorate the rebirth of ourselves, cleansed from our past sins.  As by this act we show our faith in YaHushuah's life, death, burial and resurrection and that no other mode fitly represents that which the Scriptures prescribe, namely, complete immersion. Romans 6:3-6; Colossians 2:12 .
6
The new birth comprises the entire change necessary to fit us for the kingdom of YaHWeH, and consists of two parts: first, a moral change wrought by conversion and a Believers life; second, a physical change at the second coming of The Messiah, whereby, if dead, we are raised incorruptible, and if living, are changed to immortality in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye. John 3:3, 5; 1 Corinthians 15:52; Luke 20:36 .
7
We believe that prophecy is a part of YaHWeH's revelation to man; that it is included in the Scriptures which is profitable for instruction, 2 Timothy 3:16 ; that it is designed for us and our children, Deuteronomy 29:29 ; that so far from being enshrouded in impenetrable mystery, it is that which especially constitutes the word of YaHWeH a lamp to our feet and light to our path, Psalms 119:105; 2 Peter 1:19 ; that a blessing is pronounced upon those who study it, Revelation 1:3 ; and that, consequently, it is to be understood by the people of YaHWeH sufficiently to show them their position in the world's history, and the special duties required at their hands.
8
The world's history from specified dates in the past, the rise and fall of empires, and chronological succession of events down to the setting up of YaHWeH's everlasting kingdom, are outlined in numerous great chains of prophecy.
9
The doctrine of the world's conversion and temporal millennium is a fable of these last days, calculated to lull men into a state of carnal security, and cause them to be overtaken by the great day of YaHWeH as by a thief in the night; that the second coming of The Messiah is to precede, not follow, the millennium; for until YaHushuah appears, abominations will to continue, the wheat and tares grow together, and evil men and seducers wax worse and worse, as the word of YaHWeH declares. 2 Thessalonians 2:6-11; 2 Timothy 3:13
10
YaHWeH's moral requirements are the same upon all men in all dispensations; that these are summarily contained in the commandments spoken by YaHWeH from Sinai, engraven on the tables of stone, and deposited in the ark, which was in consequence called the "ark of the covenant", or testament. Numbers 10:33; Hebrews 9:4 , etc.: that this law is immutable and perpetual, being a transcript of the tables deposited in the ark of the true sanctuary on high, which is also, for the same reason, called the ark of YaHWeH's testament; for under the sounding of the seventh trumpet we are told that "the temple of YaHWeH was opened in heaven, and there was seen in His temple the ark of His testament." Revelation 11:19 .
11
The fourth commandment of this law requires that we devote the seventh day of each week, commonly called S-turday, to the abstinence from our own labor, and to the performance of righteous duties and study of Torah ; that this is the only weekly Shabbat known to the Scriptures being the day that was set apart, Genesis 2:2, 3 ; and which will be observed in paradise restored, Isaiah 66:22, 23 . That the facts upon which the Sabbath institution is based confine it to the seventh day, as they are not true of any other day.
12
Influences have thought to change times and laws (the laws of YaHWeH) Daniel 7:25, and has mislead almost all believers in regard to the fourth commandment; that we find a prophecy of a reform in this respect to be wrought among believers just before the coming of The Messiah. Isaiah 56:1, 2; 1 Peter 1:5; Revelation 14:12 ; etc.
13
As the natural or carnal heart is at enmity with YaHWeH and His law, this enmity can be subdued only by a radical transformation of the affections, the exchange of unrighteous for righteous principles; that this transformation follows repentance and faith, is the special work of the Set Apart Spirit, and constitutes regeneration or conversion.
14
As all have violated the law of YaHWeH, and cannot themselves render obedience to His just requirements, we are dependent on The Messiah, first, for justification from our past offences, and secondly, for grace whereby to render acceptable obedience to His righteous law in time to come. John 15:5, Titus 3:5 .
15
The Spirit of Elohim was promised to manifest itself in the assembly through certain gifts, enumerated especially in 1 Corinthians 12 and Ephesians 4 ; that these gifts are not designed to supersede, or take the place of the Scriptures, which is sufficient to make us wise unto salvation, any more than the Scriptures can take the place of the Set Apart Spirit. That in specifying the various channels of its operation, that Spirit has simply made provision for its own existence and presence with the people of YaHWeH to the end of time, to lead to an understanding of the word which He had inspired, to convince of sin, and work a transformation in the heart and life; and that those who deny to the Spirit its place and operation, do plainly deny that part of the Scriptures which assigns to it this work and position.
16
YaHWeH, in accordance with his uniform dealings with the race, sent forth a proclamation of the approach of the second advent of The Messiah; that this work is symbolized by the three messages of Revelation 14 , the last one bringing to view the work of reform on the law of YaHWeH, that His people may acquire a complete readiness for that event.
17
The time of cleansing of the sanctuary, synchronizing with the time of the proclamation of the third message, is a time of the investigative judgment, first with the time of proclamation of the third message, is a time of the investigative judgment, first with reference to the dead, and at the close of the probation with reference to the living; to determine who of the myriads now sleeping in the dust of the earth are worthy of a part in the first resurrection, and who of its living multitudes are worthy of translation- points which must be determined before the Messiah appears.
18
The state to which we are reduced to by death is that of silence, inactivity and unconsciousness.  For there is no work, or planning, or knowledge, or wisdom in the grave, where you are going.  Psalms 146:4; Ecclesiastes 9:5, 10; Daniel 12:2; etc. .
19
That all of humanity is appointed to death.  For believers in YaHWeH and YaHushuah, this corruption will put on incorruption and this mortal will put on immortality.  For those that do not believe in YaHWeH and YaHushuah, there end shall be destruction.                                                                                                                           20                                                                                                                                                             Out of this prison house of the grave of mankind, we are to be brought by a bodily resurrection; the righteous having part in the first resurrection, which takes place at the second advent of The Messiah, the wicked in the second resurrection, which takes place a thousand years thereafter. Revelation 20:4-6 .
21
At the last trump, the living righteous are to be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, and with the resurrected righteous are to be caught up to meet the Messiah in the air, so forever to be with YaHWeH. 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17 .
22
The immortalized ones are then taken to Heaven to the New Jerusalem, the Father's house in which there are many mansions, John 14:1-3 ; where they reign with The Messiah a thousand years, judging the world and fallen angels, that is, apportioning the punishment to be executed upon them at the close of the one thousand years; Revelation 20:4; 1 Corinthians 6:2, 3 . That during this time the earth lies in a desolate and chaotic condition, Jeremiah 4:20-27 ; described, as in the beginning by the Greek term abusso, bottomless pit (Septuagint of Genesis1:2 ); and that here HaShatan is confined during the thousand years, Revelation 20:1, 2 ; here finally destroyed, Revelation 20:10; Malachi 4:1.                                                                                                                                               23
The end of the thousand years, the Messiah descends with His people and the new Jerusalem, Revelation 21:2 ; the wicked dead are raised and come up upon the surface of the yet unrenewed earth, and gather about the city, the camp of the righteous, Revelation 20:9 ; and fire comes down from YaHWeH out of heaven and devours them. They are then consumed root and branch, Malachi 4:1 ; becoming as though they had not been. Obadiah 15, 16 . In this everlasting destruction (destruction which is for eternity) from the presence of the Messiah, 2 Thessalonians 1:9 ; the wicked meet the everlasting punishment threatened against them, Matthew 25:46 . This is the perdition of unrighteous men, the fire which consumes them being the fire for which "the heavens and earth which are now", are kept in store, which shall melt even the elements with its intensity, and purge the earth from the deepest stains of the curse of sin. 2 Peter 3:7-12.
24
A new heavens and earth shall spring by the power of YaHWeH from the ashes of the old, to be, with the New Jerusalem for its capital, the eternal inheritance of the righteous, the place where the righteous shall evermore dwell. 2 Peters 3:13; Psalms 37:11, 29; Matthew 5:5.
25
"Let a woman learn in silence, in all subjection. But I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, rather, to be in silence." (1 Timothy 2:11-12). Scripturally, a woman must never place her authority over a man’s. Whether or not she has a man over her, she is not to hold a position in the assembly which is as having authority.  In the following Old Testament passages we find that all priests were men: Exodus 28:1; Exodus 32:26-29; Leviticus 8:2; Numbers 8:16-26. Nowhere within the Old Testament do we find priestesses of YaHWeH.
