What do we believe?
We believe that the Bible, this closed Book with seven seals (Revelation 5:1-5), was opened in our days (Rev. 10). By these mystery truths, which were hidden in the Bible and were now made known, we come back to the faith of our fathers (Malachi 4:5-6). This is the promised Message of God which precedes the second coming of Christ and was made known before the great and dreadful day of the Lord.
We believe in ONE God who has manifested Himself through three manifestations: as Father (God is a Spirit above us, John 4:24; Exodus 13:21), as Son (God with us, Matthew 1:23) and as Holy Ghost (God in us, John 14:17). But it is always the one and same God.
In Jesus, God Himself came down in human flesh, in whom all godly wisdom and knowledge was restored unto man (Col. 1:27-29; 2:1-3,9; John 1:1-3,14-18; I Tim. 3:16; Col. 2:9-10; II Cor. 5;19).We follow the three commandments of God for His church:
- Water Baptism by immersing, after a God given recognition of sin and repentance (Acts 2:36-41), in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ (which is the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost),
- Communion (I Cor. 11:23-29),
- Foot washing (John 13:1-15).
We believe that many of the mysterious subjects approached in God's Word were sealed until the time of the end (Daniel 12:9). But in the last days the mystery of God should be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets (Revelation 10:7; Acts 3:21).We believe that the most important thing in life is: to be ready to meet God.
