Elohim is (God) Jesus Christ refer to (Yahoshua)
Elohim(God)is the eternal, all-powerful, supreme creator and sustainer of the entire universe. Elohim(God) is one, composed
of spirit and comprising a family presently consisting of two spirit beings with all power: The Father and The Son. Elohim
is a loving, kind, merciful Elohim who wants to share His magnificent existence by reproducing Himself through man.

The whole Bible is the divinely inspired Word of The Most High containing His plan of salvation, and the record of His
participation in history. The Bible is The Most High revelation of knowledge that man cannot discover for himself. It is the
foundation of knowledge, and man's instruction manual of life. The Old and New Testaments comprise Yah written Word, which
forms the basis of a true Believer as taught by the Word.

Gentile Name(JESUS CHRIST) Hebrew Name (Yahoshua)
Yahshua of Nazareth is the anointed one, the Son of The Most High, The Holy One of Israel. He was the prophesied Messiah
of the Old Testament, and is described in the New Testament as being Elohim(God) in the Flesh. As the
second member of the Godhead, He has existed throughout eternity as the "Word." He divested Himself of this
power and His majesty, and became a human being to die for the sins of all mankind as our loving and merciful Savior. He was
then resurrected by the Father, and ascended to heaven to become our High Priest. Yahsuha(Jesus Christ) shall
return to establish the Kingdom of Elohim(God) on earth, and rule as King of Kings with His saints forever in Jerusalem.

THE HOLY SPIRIT is the (Words) of The Most High
The Holy Spirit is not the third part of the "Trinity". There are currently only two members in the Godhead,
The Father and His Son. The Holy Spirit can be manifested to man in many forms. One form is an Angel sent from Elohim(God)
to bring to remembrance what The Son has told us in His Holy Word (another form of His Spirit). The Word that the Angel brings
to man is the power, thoughts, and spiritual extension of Elohim (God). The Most High begets true Believers as His sons and
daughters through this Spirit Elohim(God's Word). It strengthens the believers
spiritually, converts his mind, and serves as an earnest, or beginning, of the transformation to obtain eternal life.
Genesis 1:2; Exodus 23:20; Judges 2:1-4; Isaiah 63:9; Romans 12:1-2; Psalm 104:4; John 14:26; 15:26; 16:13-15; Acts 7:52-53;
Hebrews 1:13-14; Revelation 1:1-2; 22:6,16
Salvation is the means by which Elohim(God), through the Anointed One(The Son), saves man from the penalty of sin and
gives him eternal life through obedience to His Word. This process includes one's calling, repentance, baptism, and receiving
of the Holy Spirit, life of faith and obedience, and final birth into The Father Kingdom as a spirit being. Salvation is a
freely given gift from God established by the law through grace, with our ultimate reward given according to our works.
Matthew 16:27; 24:13; John 3:11,16-17; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:1-11; Hebrews 6:1-11; Revelation 3: 10-12
Faith is the sure knowledge that Elohim(God) exists, and that He will accomplish those things He has promised in His Word.
Faith is necessary for salvation.
Habakkuk 2:4; Romans 1:17; 10:17; Hebrews 11:1-21,40; James 2:20-21,26
Repentance is the act of acknowledging one's sins, and resolving to fully obey the Son of Man and adhere to His Word (Commandments).
It begins when Holy Spirit(Word) opens one's mind to see himself in comparison with Elohim(God) and His law. True repentance
is the first step toward reconciliation with The Father, and thereby toward ultimate salvation.
Acts 2:38; 3:19-21; 8:22; 1 John 3:4
The ceremony of water baptism is performed by immersion, for the forgiveness of sins, upon true repentance and acceptance
of The Anointed One sacrifice. After this action, and as a result, one receives the baptism of the Holy Spirit through the
"...washing of the water by the
word." Baptism symbolizes the renunciation of the past sinful way of life, the burial of the old man in a watery
grave, and the emergence of a new, Spirit-led man living with The Anointed Ones mind, laws and statutes, and following in
Matthew 3:13-16; Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1-11; Colossians 2:6-12, 1 John 2: 1-7
KINGDOM OF The Anointed One
The Kingdom of Jesus is a future world-ruling government to be set up on earth with headquarters in Jerusalem. Those who
were found worthy to be raised in the First Resurrection will rule and reign with Him for a thousand years. Flesh and blood
man will still be alive as the
uninterrupted Word of peace shall go forth from His throne. Satan will be bound for a thousand years as Jesus teaches
His law, and shall be completely fulfilled when Jesus gives all ruler ship to God the Father as He and New Jerusalem and come
down out of heaven to dwell on the earth forever.
Psalm 2: 7-9; Isaiah 2:2-5; 11:1-12; 65:17-25; Micah 4:1-8; Revelation 20:4-6
KINGDOM OF The Most High
The Kingdom of God is the family of God ruling as the government of God. It is a future world-ruling government to be
first established by Christ with Jesus as King and the resurrected spirit-composed saints in positions of co-ruler ship with
Him. The Kingdom of God shall be
established on earth forever. All will be changed into spirit beings and those who were not found in the Lamb's book of
life shall be cast into the lake of fire to be tormented forever.
Ezekiel 48:1-35; 1 Corinthians 15:24-28; Revelation 5:10; 20:4;21-27; 22:1-5
The gospel is the message preached by the prophets, apostles, and Christ about The Father coming Kingdom, the restoration
of His government on earth, and how mankind can enter that Kingdom and government. It includes the message of what Jesus has
done, is doing, and shall do and ultimately is the message of the entire Old and New Testaments. The primary purpose and commission
of the Lord's church (which is Israel) is to go and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of The of the Son for the
remission of sins.
Matthew 3:2; 4:23; 24:14; 28:19-20; Mark 1:1-2, 14-15; Luke 24:47; Romans 1:1-4; 1 Corinthians 9:14; Revelation 14:6-7
Prophecy is The Father and Son testimony to people, revealing His purpose and plan for mankind. God boldly states that
He has a definite plan and purpose. He declares that there is none like Him, that He declares the end from the beginning,
and that He will accomplish His purpose. Much of God's plan and purpose is revealed in the Holy Bible. God's people are called
upon to be faithful and honest with the Word of God, "rightly dividing the word of truth," and informed that no
prophecy is subject to personal or private interpretation. Down through the ages,
many self-proclaimed "prophets" (false prophets) have come, and there is no shortage today. A false prognostication
attributed to God is a violation of the Third Commandment and will have to be accounted for. Fulfilled prophecy, or prophecy
in progress of being fulfilled, builds faith in God and His Word.
Isaiah 46:9-11; Isaiah 55:10-11; Jeremiah 23:23-32; Matthew 12:36-37; 2 Timothy 2:15; Revelation 19:9-10
THE FIRST AND SECOND RESURRECTION
The hope of all mankind and the promise to the Christian is the resurrection from the dead. The Bible refers to (1) the
resurrection of Jesus Christ, the firstborn from the dead and the pioneer of our salvation; (2) the resurrection of the saints—called
the "first resurrection" at the return of Christ when the true believers shall become spirit-composed members of
God's family; (3) the resurrection of the dead who were not found worthy to be raised in the first resurrection. All that
will be raised will be given a spiritual body, but all will not inherit the Kingdom of God; some will be cast into the Lake
of Fire and brimstone (which is called the "second death").
Daniel 12:1-3; John 5:28-29; Acts 2:32; Romans 8:11; 1 Corinthians 15:20; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Revelation 20:4-14.
The time of one's judgment is the time of his opportunity for salvation, extending from one's calling by God until his
death (or the resurrection at Christ's return). The Judgment will occur after the beast, the false prophet, and Satan have
all been cast in the Lake of Fire and the "rest of the dead" have been raised. Those who shall qualify for God's
Kingdom—the overwhelming majority shall inherit
eternal life, and those who deliberately reject God's way shall be consumed in the lake of fire.
Daniel 12:2-3; Matthew 13:49-50; 25:34; Mark 9: 43-48; 1 Peter 4:17; Revelation 20:11-15; 21:8
Forgiveness is the state of being whereby one's sins are removed, blotted out, or covered. "Blessed is he whose transgression
is forgiven, whose sin is covered." It is obvious from Scripture that sin is the transgression of God's laws and a condition
that separates us from God. It also divides us from each other and breaks down relationships. Thus, forgiveness comes to us
in two spheres: (1)forgiveness from God towards us, and (2) forgiveness from us to each
other. The example prayer given to us by Jesus Christ in the book of Matthew, 6th chapter summarizes the full scope of
the issue of forgiveness. The forgiveness we obtain from God depends largely on the forgiveness we offer to others. Those
who refuse to forgive will not be forgiven.
Psalm 32:1-2; 86:5; 103:10-11; 130:3-4; Matthew 6:12-15; 1 John 1:9; 1 John 4:20-21
LAW OF GOD
The law of God as revealed in the Bible is a good, right, and perfect system of eternal directives and principles that
reflects God's character and serves as a means of expressing His love toward man. God's law teaches man how to properly worship
God, how to love his fellow man, how to live life abundantly, and, at the same time, how to prepare for an eternal spiritual
life in the family of God. The law of God is represented in both the Old and the New Testaments, and is expressed by both
physical actions and spiritual motivations.
Exodus 20:1-17, 20; Deuteronomy 10:12-13; Nehemiah 9:13; John 14:15,21; Romans 7:12; 1 John 5:2-3
Both testaments record that God made certain promises in the form of specific contracts or agreements with the nation
of Israel and through them, to the rest of the sons of Adam. These are called "covenants," and define the terms
of God's relationship with individuals or groups in various circumstances and eras. Of these covenants, the best known
are the covenants made with Israel (the Old and New Covenants) which will be fully confirmed after the return of Jesus
Christ. The New Covenant makes God's law even more relevant by expanding it to include one's mental attitude and spiritual
Exodus 20:1-17; Jeremiah 31:31-34; Matthew 5:21-22;
2Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 8:6-13
The Ten Commandments, as revealed by God, are the perfect expression of God's love. They are the foundation of all biblical
teaching, showing man how to express love toward God and fellowman, and are consequently the focal point of Christian life.
Exodus 20; Deuteronomy 5; Matthew 5:17-19; Romans 13:10; 1 Corinthians 7:19; Revelation 12:17; 14:12; 22:14
The seventh-day Sabbath is to be taught and kept holy in accordance with the biblical instruction. Instituted at creation,
reaffirmed to Israel as a part of the covenant at Sinai, and taught by Jesus Christ, who is the Mediator of the New Covenant,
the observance of the Sabbath is basic to a Christian's relationship with God.
Genesis 2:2-;3; Exodus 16; 20:8-11; 31:12-17; Nehemiah 13:17-19; Isaiah 56:1-7; 58:13-14; 66:23; Mark 2:27-28; Luke 4:16;
ANNUAL HOLY DAYS (FEAST DAYS)
The annual holy days were ordained by God to be kept by all mankind. These feast days, as well as the Sabbath, is what
sanctifies (separates) us from the world's sinful holidays. These seven annual "appointed feasts" picture God's
plan of salvation for man and are commanded to be kept throughout all generations.
Leviticus 23; Zechariah 14:16; John 7:8-10; Acts 2:1; 12:3; 20:6,16; 27:9; 1 Corinthians 5:8; 16:8
Tithing is an act of worship; it is a private matter between the individual and God. The church does not "enforce"
or "police" tithing, but simply teaches the responsibility to tithe. Each individual has the responsibility to "honor
the Lord with his substance and with the first fruits of all his increase." Tithing is a method by which the message
of Jesus Christ is proclaimed to the world.
Genesis 14:18-20; Malachi 3:8-10; Matthew 6:21; 23:23; 2 Corinthians 9:7
BIBLICAL DIETARY LAWS
Biblical dietary laws, including the prohibitions of Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14, are among the many health laws God
gave to Israel to give to mankind. The prophets, the apostles, and Jesus observed them, and they remain in effect today. Scripture
indicates that laws pertaining to "clean" and "unclean" animals were recognized and observed from earliest
Genesis 7:2-3; 8:20; Leviticus 3:17; 11; Deuteronomy 14:3-21; Matthew 5:17-19; Acts 10:9-15, 28; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18
Sin is the transgression of God's law. Although the penalty for sin is death in the lake of fire, all sin can be completely
forgiven by God, who desires that all men be saved. God forgives sin upon repentance of the individual who accepts the shed
blood and sacrifice of Jesus Christ as payment in full for the penalty of his sins.
Romans 6:23; Ephesians 4:32; Colossians 1:14; James 1:15; 4:17; 1 John 3:4
A true Christian is one in whom the Word of God (or Holy Spirit)dwells; they keep all of God's laws, statutes, and ordinances
to the best of their ability, and loves their God and brothers and sisters as they love themselves.
Romans 8:9; 1 Corinthians 12:13; 2 Timothy 2:19-21; Revelation 14:12
MAN'S SPIRITUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
Man's spiritual relationship with God begins with repentance, baptism, and faith in His Word. When these criteria are
met, God "begets" us with His Spirit (The Word of God); He becomes our Father and we become His children. A family
relationship has begun. To maintain this family
relationship, a bond is formed as we fellowship with each other, God the Father and Jesus Christ.
Exodus 20:1-11; Daniel 6:10; Matthew 6:5–13; Acts 2:38; Romans 8:15-17; Hebrews 1:1-2,24-25; 1 John 1:3; 2 Chronicles
MAN'S RELATIONSHIP WITH HIS FELLOW MAN
First, we must realize that we are a family in the Lord through
obedience to His Word. As a family we need to live in peace with one another as much as is possible, as amplified in the
last six of the Ten Commandments. Jesus Christ gave us the principal discipline that would make it possible to live in peace
with our fellow man. He said to love our fellow man as ourselves, and gave specific instructions
for settling problems with our fellow man. Scripture urges us to consider the needs of others, and offer help to those
in need when possible.
Exodus 20:12-17; Deuteronomy 22:1-4; Matthew 18:15-17; 22:39; 25:34-40; Philippians 2:2-5; Luke 10:29-37; Hebrews 12:14;
THE CHRISTIAN FAMILY
The marriage relationship is the basis of the family, which in turn is the core of a stable society. As the primary physical
analogy of God's plan for mankind, marriage, child rearing, and the family are given a preeminent place in the teachings of
the Bible and the church.
Deuteronomy 6:2-3, 20-23; Proverbs 22:6; Malachi 4:5-6; Ephesians 5:22-33; 6:1-11 Timothy 3:2-4; 1 Peter 3:7
THE CHURCH OF GOD
The church of God is the nation of Israel. In order to become one of God's church, we must be joined to the commonwealth
of Israel through repentance, baptism and obedience to the laws, statutes, and ordinances that were given to God's chosen
people. The church is the
spiritual body of Christ and is made up of baptized, Spirit-led "spiritual Israelites" around the world.
Acts 2:38; Acts 7:38; 1 Corinthians 12:12-14,27; Colossians 3:15; Galatians 6:16
THE MISSION OF THE CHURCH(People)
The church has a mandate to continue with the witness and message of (Yahshua)Jesus Christ initiated through His life,
teachings, and sacrifice for every person and all nations. This will be accomplished by the resources available to the "body
of Christ" and furthered through the
spiritual gifts bestowed by God. As the "body" consists of individual
members, it is each person's privilege to follow the Savior and "repent…and believe the good news."
Living as new creatures in Christ, it then becomes evident that a devoted membership will carry on the work begun by Jesus
to announce "in all the world" that the "Kingdom of God is at hand." Furthermore, Christ's promise of
vitality to His church for all ages will be evident in the love of each member for their "brothers and sisters in the
faith," and their fellow man. Through spiritual design, the body of Christ will extend beyond a local community as members
support one another, taking care of their "own," visiting the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and keeping
themselves unspotted from the world.
Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 1:15; 16:15-16; Acts 1:7-8; 2:36-38; Matthew 16:18-19; Luke 24:44-47; Isaiah 61:1-3; Luke 4:18-19
The ministry of Yahusha and the New Testament church is a
ministry of service to God and His people, and a continuation of the ministry of Yahusha. The ministry has the responsibility
of teaching, edifying, and overseeing the Israel of God. The ministry of Yahusha is a team effort. The Bible outlines the
offices and job functions for the ministry of the Church of Elohim, and dictates high
moral and ethical conduct for all members of the ministry.
Isaiah 11:1-5; Isaiah 61:1-3; Matthew 4:23; Luke 4:18-19; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Timothy 3:1-13; 5:17-21; 2 Timothy 2:24-26; 1
