A Catechism of The Spiritual Lighthouse Church International Ministries
We teach that the Bible is God's written revelation to man, and thus the Bible, the Dead Sea Scrolls, Book of Enoch, Jubilees, Book of Jasher, and the Nag Hammadi Scriptures were given to us by the Holy Spirit constitute (inspired equally in all parts) Word of God (1 Corinthians 2:7-14; 2 Peter 1:20-21).

We accept the Bible as its only creed and holds certain fundamental beliefs to be the teaching of the Holy Scriptures. These beliefs, as set forth here, constitute the church's understanding and expression of the teaching of Scripture. Revision of these statements may be expected when the church is led by the Holy Spirit to a fuller understanding of Bible truth or finds better language in which to express the teachings of God's Holy Word.

We believe in God, revealed as Jesus Christ (I am that I am), the one, and only true Elohim and besides Him, there is no other Elohim, higher than Him (Isaiah 44:6). He created all things (Revelation 10:6). He is omnipotent, omnipresent, unchangeable and all-knowing (1 Chronicle 28:9; Psalm 102:12; Psalm 139:7-9; Ephesians 4:6, Malachi 3:6; Hebrews 13:8). We believe that Jesus, Elohim incarnate (Matthew 1:23), became a man in order to redeem His people Yisra'el (Luke 1:68). He died as the Passover Lamb of God on the Cross of Calvary finishing His perfect atoning sacrifice for the remission of our sins (Matthew 26:28); He arose from the grave on the third day (1 Corinthians 15:4) in triumph over death.

We believe the entire Bible, Dead Sea Scrolls, The Torah, The Prophets, Wisdom Writings, The Gospels, and the Epistles, as originally inspired, to be the inerrant, supreme, revealed Word of God. The history, covenants, and prophecies of this Holy Book were written for and about a specific elect family of people who are the children of God (Luke 3:38; Psalm 82:6) through the seedline of Adam (Genesis 5:1). All scripture is written as a doctrinal standard for our exhortation, admonition, correction, instruction, and example; the whole counsel to be believed, taught and followed (2 Timothy 3:16).

We believe that the Church composed of spirit-filled believes, from all over the world, are the direct people of the body of Christ made in the image of God (Genesis 1:27), and were placed here to be the light-bearers and supreme ruling elect (Deuteronomy 7:6; Deuteronomy 28:10) of this lost and dying world. Only the 12 Tribes of Yisra'el fulfills every detail of Biblical prophecy concerning Yisra'el, continues in these latter days to be the heirs and possessors of the covenants, prophecies, promises, and blessings of God was made to Israel. This chosen seedline, making up the "Hebrew Israelite Nations" (Genesis 35:11; Isaiah 62:2; Acts 11:26) of the earth stands far superior to all other peoples in their call as God's servant nation (Isaiah 41:8; Luke 1:54). Only these descendants of the 12 tribes of Israel scattered abroad (James 1:1; Deuteronomy 4:27; Jeremiah 31:10; John 11:52) have carried God's Word, the Bible, throughout the world (Genesis 28:14; Isaiah 43:10-12), have used His Laws in the establishment of their civil governments and are the "Elect" opposed by the Satanic anti-Christ forces of this world who do not recognize the true and living Elohim (John 5:23, 8:19, 16:2-3).

We believe sin is a transgression of God's Law (1 John 3:4) and that all have sinned (Romans 3:23). Only through knowledge of God's Law as given in His Commandments, Statutes, and Judgments, can we define and know what sin is. We are to keep and teach the laws of God (Matthew 5:17-19) on both a personal and national basis.

We believe that salvation is by grace through faith, not of works (Ephesians 2:8-9). We understand, however, that faith alone without works is dead (James 2:26). Eternal life is the gift of God through the redemption that is in our Savior Jesus (Romans 6:23) who will reward every man according to his works (Revelation 22:12). We believe that all who truly repent of their sins in full surrender and willing obedience to God, and who by faith trusts Jesus as their Savior and Deliverer, have their sins forgiven by an act of divine grace (Romans 3:21-26; Acts 3:19, Ephesians 1:7). Such individuals are justified, pardoned from the penalty of sin, and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38; Romans 5:5), which literally abides within them (John 14:16-17) and supplies the divine love that alone can fulfill the law and produce righteousness. They are baptized by the Spirit into the body of Christ, which is the true Church of God (1 Corinthians 12:12-13). We believe in a true change in life and attitude as evidence of the Spirit's work in one's life (Matthew 7:16).

We believe that the New Covenant was made with the Children of Yisra'el, the true church, the same people the Old Covenant was made with (Jeremiah 31:31-33; Hebrews 8:8-10) in fulfillment of the mercy promised our forefathers (Luke 1:72). We believe the law, minus the ordinances which Christ nailed to His cross (Ephesians 2:15), to still be in effect until heaven and earth pass (Matthew 5:17-20; Revelation 21:1).

We believe in water baptism by immersion according to the Scriptures for all true believers; being buried into the death of Jesus Christ for the remission of our sins and in the likeness of His resurrection being raised up into the newness of life (Romans 6:3-6). Baptism being ordained of God a testimony to the New Covenant as circumcision was under the Old Covenant (Colossians 2:11-13).

We believe that communion is the partaking of the bread and cup in accordance with our Savior's command to be done in remembrance of Him (1 Corinthians 11:23-26).

We believe that all worldly problems result from our disobedience to Divine Law (Isaiah 1:4-6). We believe that if there is to be changed in our nations for the better, that we must come together, remove the wicked from our midst, turn from our wicked ways and humble ourselves before Jesus Christ The Almighty (2 Chronicles 7:14).

We believe in the literal return to this earth of Jesus Christ in like manner as He departed (Acts 1:11), to take the throne of David (Isaiah 9:7; Luke 1:32) and establish His everlasting Kingdom (Daniel 2:44; Luke 1:33; Revelation 11:15). Every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that He is King of kings and Lord of lords (Philippians 2:10-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15).
