This is a work in progress. We will continue adding to these as time goes on.

What we are trying to accomplish is to find explicit statements in Scripture and then to list them here under the appropriate category. This will be where we start as far as what we believe because these usually can't be argued against. Over time, other items may be added that are not explicitly mentioned but can be supported through a combination of Scriptures.

1. The Godhead

1.1 God the Father
The Supreme Deity of the universe is God the Father. He is the Almighty, the Creator of the heavens, the earth and all things therein ( Gen. 1.1 ; Neh. 9.6 ; Ps. 124:8; Isa. 40:26,28; 44:24; Acts 14:15; 17:24-25; Rev. 14:7).
He alone is immortal (Greek avqanasi,a, "endless existence"), and no man has seen or can see Him (1Tim. 6:16). He is our God and Father and the God and Father of Yeshua (Jn. 20:17). He is the Most High God (Gen. 14:18; Num. 24:16; Deut. 32:8; Mk. 5:7) and the Only True God (Jn. 17:3; 1Jn. 5:20).

Yeshua states that the Father "seeks those who would worship Him, for they are the true worshippers..." (John 4:23). Prayer is to be directed to the Father and asked in Yeshua's name (John 16:23).
1.2 Yeshua the Son of God
Yeshua is the image of the invisible God and the first born
(Grk. prwto,tokoj) of the creation (Col. 1:15). He is the only "born" (Grk. monogenh.j) Son of God (Mat. 3:17; Mat. 14:33; Jn. 1:18; 1Jn. 4:9), conceived of the Holy Spirit and born to the virgin, Mariam (Lk. 1:26-35).

He is the Christ or Messiah (Mat. 16:16; Jn. 1:41), sent from God to be our Saviour and Redeemer (Jn. 8:42; Eph. 1:7; Tit. 2:14). He is called the Son of the Most High God (Mk. 5:7).

The teaching given by Yeshua was not his but the Fathers, who sent him (John 7:16-17, 12:49, 14:10, 14:24, 17:8).

He is given eternal life by the Father who alone possess it (John 5:26, 1Tim. 6:16). He is the mediator between God and men
(1Tim 2:5) He was designated Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead (Rom. 1:4). In him dwelled the fulness of the Divine nature (Col 2:9), yet he had an independent will, sometimes not in agreement to the will of God the Father (Matt 26:39).

He is given the throne of David to rule over the House of Jacob (Lk. 1:32). He will reign until he has put all enemies under his feet. Then, he himself will step down and become subject to God the Father (1Cor 15:25-28). IICor 5:18-19 says that God was in Yeshua reconciling the world unto Himself. IJohn 4:2 We acknowledge that Yeshua the Messiah has come in the flesh and is from God.

We believe that the authors of the Scriptures thought of the Messiah as "divine" within the semantic range of the word as it is used in the complete revelation of the Scriptures. Furthermore, we believe that Yeshua is the Son of Man, that he is the chosen emissary of the Father, that he is the active agent and active agency of Yahweh in creation, restoration, and redemption. Finally, as we honor the Father, we should also honor the son. John 5:23.

1.3 The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit (Acts 2:4) is that essence or power of God which Yeshua promised to send to the elect (Jn. 16:7). We are to be filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts 9:17; Eph. 5:18) and led by the Holy Spirit which allows us to become Sons of God (Rom. 8:14; 1Jn. 3:1-2) and co-heirs with Christ (Rom. 8:17; Gal. 3:29; Tit. 3:7; Heb. 1:14, 6:17; Jas. 2:5; 1Pet. 3:7).

It is given by God to those who ask (Lk. 11:9-13) and obey him, dwelling in those who keep God's commandments (1Jn. 3:24; Acts 5:32). The Holy Spirit is the comforter that leads God's servants into all truth (Jn. 14:16,17,26).

The Holy Spirit confers the power to witness (Acts 1:8). The Holy Spirit administers gifts as recorded in 1Corinthians 12:7-11 and has fruits as described in Galatians 5:22-23 not being given by measure (Jn. 3:34 RSV; Rom. 12:6).

2. The Scriptures

There are many more to come but they will have to wait until we have time to post them.
