Summary Statement of Basic Biblical Beliefs
Assembly of Yahweh, Cascade, Sept. 3, 2023
Believe in One Almighty Sovereign Creator Power named YHWH (Yahweh). He is the Ever-living Life-force Essence of the endless eternal Universe (the true G-d)  as revealed to the ancient Hebrews through His celestial messengers and to the anointed prophets  of the Hebrew Bible. The Almighty is incorporeal and He exists throughout His Universe. He is everywhere at all times. There are no mighty gods (of any types) before Him or after Him in all eternity, Isa. 43:10; 44:6; 44:8. Yahweh has always existed, Psa. 90:2. He is set-apart, He is Eternal, Isa. 57:15, He is Omnipotent, Jer. 32:17; 27, He is Omnipresent, Psa. 139:7, He is Omniscient; etc. He alone is Truth, Psa. 117:2, and He is the only Creator, Isa. 40:12, 22, 26.
Believe in the name of the One Almighty Sovereign that He gave to Moses, אהיה (AHYH), Exo. 3:14, AHYH using English letters means I-am, but we are to say יהוה (YHWH), Exo. 3:15, He-is. YHWH transliterated using English letters becomes YaH-WeH and means: He-is, He-exists, or Ever-living. Yahweh is the only ONE Almighty to whom we owe our reverence, prayer, and worship. We accept no other as our One Almighty Sovereign Creator Power and do not believe in a Roman Catholic manufactured 'Trinity god.' Deut. 5:7, .
Believe that Yahweh by His mercy, forgives the sins of those who with sincere repentance, Isa. 1:16-18,  accept Him as their only Redeemer and Savior. For their thankfulness these saved will observe Yahweh's Covenant (the 10 Commandments) and will strive to do the will of their heavenly Father Yahweh, Matt. 12:50, . Yahshua (aka Jesus) calls all those that do the will of the Father Yahweh his brothers, sisters, and mother, Matt. 12:50, . They, like Yahshua is a son of the Almighty Sovereign Creator Father Yahweh, become like Yahshua, the sons and daughters of the same heavenly Father. Together they all are members of the same heavenly household of their heavenly Father Yahweh.
Believe that the promise of eternal life is given to all believers that become members of Yahweh's heavenly household, because they will strive to do what Yahweh requires of them for what is good, by doing justly, to love mercy, and they will continue to walk humbly with their heavenly Father Yahweh. Mic. 6:6-8, .
Believe in the precepts and principles of Torah , (found throughout the Hebrew Bible) as was also taught by the Prophet Yahshua (Jesus), Matt. 7:21,  according to his statements as recorded in the Synoptic Gospels  of the Greek New Testament. Torah instructions are similar to what any righteous father would provide to guide his children during life. We believe that the Covenant (the 10 Commandments), Deut. 5: 2-22,  is applicable for all believers but not the man made sacrificial laws in the Hebrew Bible, Jer. 7:21-23, .
Believe that the Greek New Testament essentially, is simply a collection of opinions, conjecture, and hearsay, much of it by unknown authors compiled many decades after the fact. Only some historical events about the prophet Yahshua may be believable, as well as some of his sayings, or teachings from unknown second or third hand recollections when they appear to follow the precepts that were first established by the anointed Prophets recorded in the Hebrew Bible.
Believe that Yahshua (Jesus) of the NT was a 'natural born' Israelite man, an anointed prophet sent to the Lost tribes of First Century of Israel, Matt. 15:24, . His mission was to preach repentance before Yahweh, to baptize, and to announce the Gospel (good) news - that the Kingdom (council) of Yahweh/of heaven had come, Matt. 4:17, . That the Kingdom was available for them as it is for us today to dwell within all true believers . Yahshua was not and is not Yahweh the Almighty, and Yahshua was not a sacrifice to please Yahweh the Almighty so He could forgive sins, Jer. 7:22; Isa. 1:11. This is true because human sacrifice is strictly forbidden by Yahweh, Psa. 106:37-41; Jer. 7:31.
Believe that Yahshua's Mission was to free the First Century Israelites from the religious traditions and manmade oral laws that had enslaved them, and to turn the people back toward their One Original Almighty Sovereign Creator Yahweh, Mark 7:9,  for them to seek only His counsel for their lives. This angered the local authorities and became a constant threat to the religious rulers of his day. Over time this eventually resulted in his execution by Roman officials for their claim of sedition, Matt. 12:14, .
Believe that Yahshua was resurrected from the dead by Yahweh (according to the Gospels) and subsequently ascended into heaven, because he was faithful to his mission. We do not believe that the Bible teaches in a future second coming of Yahshua, but that the second coming of Yahshua has already occurred. We believe this is true because the New Testament records - that some of those hearing him speak at their time in history would still be alive to see him come into his kingdom, Matt. 16:28, .
Believe that there is one global collective set-apart Universal Assembly of all True Believers. Believe in the gathering together of home groups and/or assemblies for worship, for fellowship, for communication on weekly appointed times, and to observe the seventh day for rest, Deut. 5:12-14, . We try to keep to the Biblical food laws for our health, since the Bible tells us what we should not eat.
 Yahweh, the Almighty Sovereign Creator. He is above all and to whom only we owe our reverence and worship. True G-d. See Deut. 6:4; Jer. 10:10; Matt. 27:46; Mark 12:29; John 20:17; 1 Cor. 8:6; Eph. 4:6; 1 Tim. 1:17, 2:5; 1 John 4:12; Jude 1:25; Rev. 3:2, 12.

 Torah is the totality of instructions found throughout the Hebrew Bible that Yahweh as Father gave to the ancient Israelites for righteous living. Visit: https://trueisraelism.com/Documents/Torah-is-not-Law.html
 Synoptic Gospels - are the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke that tell the story of the mission of Yahshua, about his life, and quote him from a similar point of view, and are similar in structure. This is likely because all three unknown authors built their gospel using a common source. Matthew and Luke may have used materials not available to early Mark. We do not give any reliable credit to the 2nd century Gospel called John that has falsely spiritualized Jesus into a g-d-man. In the Synoptic Gospels Yahshua referred to himself as the son of man, never as G-d the son.
