WHAT WE BELIEVE
Church of Refuge
July 19th 2015
We believe the living written word of God (King James Version, Geneva) Bible is, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. (Note: we believe the ‘New International version is blasphemy thru and thru, especially Romans 13 and akin. The Bible does not contradict itself. This bible is not authentic). The Bible is and unfolds the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice. We believe that the Law of God is the only Law required to be followed and that we bow not to any other. Note; Deut. 4:2, 12:32, Lev. 18:3-4, Romans 13:1-9 (tribute to ministers only) Matthew 22:16
We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists externally as everything present visible and spiritual and eternally in trinity: the Father, the Son (living soul), and the Temple, Man, all things Holy within all man and woman equally.
We believe that all have sin by missing the mark which is the High Calling in Christ. Man is divine and always will be forever. Man may choose to walk in darkness but is still a divine soul and is subject to Godly Law. Man did not fall from grace but walked away from the Law of God by free will and can return in grace in one breath by choice anytime and forever.
1 John 4:16 God is Love; we are made in likeness and image Love, (Gen. 1:26) God is sovereign and we are sovereign; We bestow love and grace as gods; we are perfect love as Godly Law is perfect; we are love and whatever we love we create.
We believe that salvation is by God alone as He through sovereignty chooses those He will save by the spiritual deeds created. We can not please God without Faith but with faith all of God’s merits flow to us his heirs for scripture says to work out our own salvation with fear and trembling (Phil. 2:12) and true salvation is true immortality.
We believe that Jesus Christ is an immortal eternal Son of God, the word, who through His perfect life and death showed all, the map to immortality and salvation. (1 Cor. 15:523)
We believe that God is gracious and faithful to all people not simply as individuals but as families in generations according to His Covenant promises. God is gracious and faithful to all people more so when people understand God’s Law. (Psm. 40:8 Romans 7:14 For we know that the law is spiritual)
We believe that the Holy Spirit, our eternal soul and consciousness, indwells all people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust the teaching of Christ and follow Him as instructed. Mark 10:21 Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.
We believe that all aspects of our sovereign lives are to be lived to the glory of God governed under the teaching and Lordship of Jesus Christ and the simple Law of sowing and reaping all that we create.
Affiliation with the civil government, i.e. Corporation in accepting of the duties of which any Gospel principle is violated, or one's Christian character is endangered, is incompatible with Christianity. (I Pet. 3:9; I Thess. 5:22; Rom. 12:17-21.) All members of the Church of Refuge are admonished to give heed to the example of humility and simplicity of life which Jesus left us in every feature of our lives every day. We advise all our members not to take part in politics or political matters outside the church. Church of Refuge has taken a stand against Birth Certificates, Social Security, voting in the Corporation as a PERSON, All Licenses by Government, All Numbering of any kind per scripture, (2 Sam. 24: 1-25) but leaves the matter to the individual as to his participation with this darkness in the hope that all ties be broken. For Brethren to enter the legal profession and conduct a regular law business, is out of harmony with the Scriptures, and contrary to what has been the mind of the Church since its organization. Learning Common Law attributes is acceptable for a proper defense against a defacto corporation.. Taking or subscribing to the civil oath in any form is forbidden in the Scriptures. We believe exemption from the 1983 Social Security Amendments and prior affecting churches, inasmuch as these regulations of involuntary application and enforcement of Social Security are contrary to a sincerely held Biblical conviction that the government should not tax God or His Church. (Matt. 22:17-21; Eph. 1:21-22; Eph. 5:23; Col. 1:18.)
Again; Deut. 4:2, 12:32, Lev. 18:3-4, Romans 13:1-9 (tribute to ministers only) Matthew 22:16, Acts 10:34, James 2:9, Romans 2:11 Deut. 1:17 and 10:17.
Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: We do not condone violence, nor war,
We are not public and do not have faith in Public Schools nor akin to the vicious lies taught in European based fictions like Columbus was a upright soul, “Columbus discovered America.” America did not need discovering. Columbus was a thief, murderer, a tyrant!
We are contrary to television, Sexual Television, Pornography, the use of alcohol or drugs for the sake of vanity, But offer counsel to those whom desire faithful repentance from sin.
We enjoy eating what God has created naturally. We faithfully stand in contrast to the poisoning of ourselves through government sanctioned chemicals in our food. These are Government, commercial tyrants only after Usury. Lev 25:(35-38) 37 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase.
We are independent. We shall not take part in the Ecumenical Movements like the National Council of Churches or any similar organization nor clubs or societies offensive to God’s Law.
