This page reveals our Statement of Faith – Ethos – Beliefs of Yahweh’s House Ministries.
1. Foundation in the Old Testament
We in Yahweh’s House Ministries affirm that the Old Testament is still valid and is the foundation for the New Testament. From many references made by Yahshua Messiah and His apostles to the Old Testament Laws, Psalms, and prophets, the authority of the Old Testament is clearly seen, Luke 24:44, Acts 24:14.
2. Basis for the New Testament
We believe that both the Old and New testaments are inspired by Father Yahweh, and that they are to be used for teaching, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness, Matthew 4:4, 2 Timothy 3:16. We are not to add or delete from either text, Revelation 22:18, hence why we reject the added vowel pointing/marking manuscripts from the Masoretic family codices. We must not take from or add to Scripture, Deuteronomy 4:2; 12:32.
3. The Father
We believe that the Heavenly Father’s Personal Name is Yahweh, Psalm 68:4; Isayah 42:8; Jeremiah 16:21. We reject false titles that replaced His true Name, such as Lord and God. We also reject false names such as Yehovah, Yahuwah, Yahovah, Jehovah, Yahuah etc. Yahweh is His Name forever, and is to be taught to all generations, Exodus 3:14-15; Isayah 63:12. He is the Ruler over everything.
Worship is to be directed toward Him and He is to be venerated above all, Exodus 20:5, Deuteronomy, 6:4, 13, 2 Kings 17:36, Psalm 99:9, Matthew 4:10. We are commanded to use Yahweh’s Name, Exodus 20:7, Leviticus 22:2, Deuteronomy 28:58, Psalm 105:1, Isayah 52:6, Matthew 6:9, John 17:26. Besides Yahweh there is no Savoir, Isayah 43:11. We believe that we should only pray to the Father, as Yahshua Hamashiach instructed us to in Mat 6. We do not believe we should end our prayers with Amen, click here for the reasons why.
4. The Son
We believe that the true Name for the Messiah is Yahshua. We reject false titles that replaced his true Name such as Lord or Jesus. We also reject the false name Yeshua. Yahshua literally means “Yahweh saves” or “Yahweh is salvation.” His Name is a contraction of YAHweh and hoSHUA. He literally came in His Father’s Name, John 5:43. He pre-existed before His earthly birth and was the spokesman for Father Yahweh in the Old Testament, Genesis 1:26; 19:24; Proverbs 8:25; Micah 5:2, John 1:1-3; 8:58; 13:3; 16:28-30, 1 Corinthians 10:4; Colossians 1:15-17. We believe that He came in human form and was born of a virgin by Yahweh’s own power, Isayah 7:14; Matthew 1:23; John 17:5, Philippians 2:5-7. Yahshua lived a completely perfect and sinless life, Isayah 53:9; 1 Peter 2:22.
5. The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is an invisible force proceeding from the Heavenly Father Yahweh. It is in essence the mind and power of Yahweh, which is also bestowed upon the Son, Luke 24:49; John 15:26. The Holy Spirit is placed within those who are baptized into the Name of Yahshua the Messiah through the laying on hands of the presbytery, Acts 2:38; 5:32; 8:17; 19:6; 1 Timothy 4:14; 2 Timothy 1:6. Through this power a person receives Yahweh’s strength to overcome sin and live a repentant and righteous life.
6. The Trinity
We do not believe in a “Trinity”, this word never appears in Holy Scripture, and has a Pagan origin, not biblical origin. Only Father Yahweh is eternal. The main origin of the Trinity, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in a triune deity came through Greek and Roman cults. With the introduction of gentile converts came a shift in thought and theology. Unlike the Jews, who viewed the worship of Yahweh in a monotheistic manner, the gentiles were polytheistic, worshiping many false gods.
We are not affiliated with this Ministry, however, we find this Trinity article thought provoking, please click here.
7. Obedience to Law
We believe that the Bible commands the observance of all Yahweh’s Name, laws, commandments, statutes, and judgments in both Old and New testaments (except the sacrifices mentioned in Hebrews 9 and ritual circumcision), Deuteronomy 6:6-9; 7:6-11; Matthew 4:4; 5:17-20; Revelation 12:17; 14:12; 22:14. Through obeying His commandments we demonstrate our love for Yahweh, John 14:15, 21; 15:12. Faith does not do away with His commandments, Romans 3:31; James 2:14-17.
8. Water Baptism
We believe that upon true repentance a person is to be baptized into the Name of Yahshua Hamashiach (meeting the scriptural age of accountability, which is 20), Matthew 3:13-17; Acts 2:38; 4:12; 8:16; 10:43; 19:5; Romans 6:3. Baptism is by complete submersion, once, backward in water. Through water baptism we become a new creation, Romans 6:3-6; 7:6; Colossians 2:12; 1Peter 3:21. There is only one true and correct baptism, Ephesians 4:5, uniting all under the Messiah. We reject sprinkling water baptism for babies, young children or adult as they are not biblical!
We believe and teach that the Sabbath day is the seventh day of the week and commemorates creation through Yahweh’s mighty hand, Genesis 2:2-3. The weekly Sabbath is a sign between Him and His people, setting them apart from the common world, Exodus 31:13-17. The Sabbath restricts any paid work, including cooking, Exodus 16:23; 20:8-11. We are not to buy or sell on Yahweh’s day of rest, or bring any burden into our dwellings, Nehemiah 10:31; 13:15-21; Jeremiah 17:21-22, 24-27. The Sabbath is a day to pray and meditate on Yahweh’s will, forsaking our own wants and desires, Isaiah 58:13-14, Acts 16:13. It is a day to come together and worship Yahweh in spirit and truth, Leviticus 23:2-3, Hebrews 10:25.
We affirm that the Passover memorial begins at dusk at the start of the fourteenth of Abib (month of green ears of barley), Exodus 12:6; Leviticus 23:5; Numbers 28:16; Deuteronomy 16:1. The Passover represents two significant events—the death of the firstborn of Egypt and the passing of the death angel, and the impalement of our Savior on the torture stake, Exodus 12; John 18-19. The Passover is a memorial, not a High Sabbath. Work may be done on this day, Matthew 27:62; Mark 15:42; Luke 23:54; John 19:14. Yahshua partook of the Passover at twilight on the fourteenth day of Abib with His Apostles, Matthew 26:17-29; Mark 14:12-25, thus fulfilling the law. We no longer sacrifice a lamb at Passover, but partake of the prescribed emblems, which represent Yahshua’s body (unleavened bread, matzoth) and blood (unfermented grape juice, the pure blood of the grape, Deut. 32:14), Luke 22:12-23, 1Corinthians 11:23-26.
11. Feast of Unleavened Bread
We believe that the Feast of Unleavened Bread begins on the 15th day of the month of Abib and extends through the 21st day of that same month, Exodus 12:15-18, Leviticus 23:6; Numbers 28:17. The first and last days of the seven-day observance are observed as high days, Exodus 12:16, Leviticus 23:7-8, Numbers 28:18, 25. During this time we are to worship Yahweh and examine ourselves, removing any pride, sin, falsity or false doctrine from our lives, Exodus 5:1, 1Corinthians 5:8. We are to remove all leaven products from our property and eat unleavened bread with our meals for all seven days of the Feast, Exodus 12:15, 18, Leviticus 23:6.
12. Feast of Weeks
Yahweh’s House Ministries believe and affirms that the Feast of Weeks (Heb. Shavuoth) or Pentecost is the third of the seven annual observances. This Feast is to be calculated from within the Feast of Unleavened Bread. We are to start the count from the day after the weekly Sabbath that falls within the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and count seven complete weeks, Leviticus 23:15-16. On this day the New Testament Assembly received the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, Acts 2.
13. Feast of Trumpets
We affirm that the Feast of Trumpets is a High Sabbath, a memorial of blowing trumpets, that falls on the first day of the seventh Hebrew month, Leviticus 23:23-25, Numbers 29:1-6.
14. Day of Atonement
We affirm that the Day of Atonement comes on the 10th day of the month of Tishri. On this day no manner of work is to be done, it is a strict Sabbath to Yahweh. On this High Sabbath we are to afflict ourselves by abstaining from food and drink, Leviticus 16; 23:26-32; Numbers 29:7-11.
15. Feast of Tabernacles
We affirm that the Feast of Tabernacles or the Feast of In-gathering starts on the 15th day of the seventh biblical month and advances through the 21st day of the month. The Feast of Tabernacles is a seven-day Feast, which has a High Day on the 15th day of Tishri, Exodus 23:16; 34:22; Leviticus 23:33-36, 39-43; Numbers 29:12-34; Deuteronomy 16:13-15. Yahshua set the example for all mankind by observing the Feast in the New Testament. Further, we are told that all people in the Millennium will observe the Feast of Tabernacles, Zechariah 14:16-19; John 7:2, 37.
16. Last Great Day
We believe that the Last Great Day immediately follows the Feast of Tabernacles and comes on the 22nd day of Tishri as a High Sabbath. On this day no manner of work is to be done. This special day commemorates the closing of the yearly feast cycle, Leviticus 23:36; Numbers 29:35-38.
We believe that sin is the breaking and transgression of Yahweh’s Law, 1 John 3:4. Without the law sin does not exist, Romans 3:20; 7:7-12, and that the penalty of sin is death, Romans 6:23; Hebrews 9:27, and we believe that all have sinned and come short of the glory of Yahweh, Romans 3:23.
We believe that marriage is a lifelong union between one man and one woman (Genesis 2:18-24; Matthew 19:5) and that remarriage is allowed only upon the death of a spouse, (Matthew 19; Romans 7:2-3; 1Corinthians 7:11). Since marriage was established only between one man and one woman, we reject same gender marriages, for example, gay, homosexual, or polygamous marriages / unions.
Yahweh’s House Ministries believes that all women in the assembly are to have their heads covered with a type of covering during worship, and that all men are to leave their heads uncovered, 1Corinthians 11:4-10.
20. Speaking in the Congregation
We believe that only men are permitted to speak before the assembly, and that Paul admonishes women to remain silent during formal worship services, 1 Corinthians 14:34-35; 1 Timothy 2:11-12.
Even though we cannot perfectly tithe today according to Scripture, we believe that tithing can still a Biblical practice that all of Yahweh’s people can partake in, Leviticus 27:30-33; Malachi 3:8-12; Matthew 23:23. A tithe is defined as 10 percent of a person’s income. Yahweh also commands a second tithe to be set aside to insure sufficient means to attend His Feasts, Deuteronomy 14:22-26.
22. Clean Food Laws
We believe that Yahweh’s dietary food Laws were not removed or abolished in the New Testament, but remain for His New Covenant believers, Leviticus 11; Deuteronomy 14; Isayah 65:4; 66:17; 2 Corinthians 6:17. We do not eat any unclean foods at all, for example, pork, prawns, eel, etc. For a full listing, click here.
We believe that Satan is a spirit being who was cast out of heaven because of his pride, Isayah 14:12-20; Ezekiel 28:13-19; Luke 10:18; Revelation 12:7-9. Satan will eventually be destroyed, Ezekiel 28:16; Romans 16:20, Hebrews 2:14. Through the help of Yahweh we can overcome temptations from Satan, James 4:7.
24. Lake of Fire (Gehenna) – Hell
Yahweh’s House Ministries reject the eternal hell teaching. The Bible does not support an ever-lasting hellfire, but that the wicked, all those who hated the love of truth, 2 Thess 2:10, will be thrown in the lake of fire (Gehenna), and will be destroyed completely, and will not burn forever, 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10; Malachi 4:1-3; Psalm 37:20-22; Jude 7. “Hell” is the Hebrew sheol in the Old Testament, which means grave or pit; the New Testament counterpart is the Greek hades, which also means grave. For more information, read this.
25. State of the Dead
Yahweh’s House Ministries believe that the dead are unconscious in their graves until they are resurrected, Job 14:12-14; Daniel 12:2; John 5:29; 1 Corinthians 15:51-56; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Hebrews 11:13, 39. We do not have immortal souls, Ezekiel 18:4, 20; Matthew 10:28, but receive immortality as a reward at the resurrection if we had faith in Yahweh and Yahshua Messiah, John 17:2-3; 2 Timothy 1:10. This article explains how the dead are asleep awaiting the resurrection.
Yahweh’s House Ministries believe that true genuine love is a critical aspect of the true believer’s life. Yahweh requires that we all demonstrate love for him and others. The two greatest commandments are, loving Yahweh with all our hearts, and loving our neighbors as ourselves, Leviticus 19:18; Deuteronomy 6:4-7; Matthew 19:19; 22:34-40; James 2:8. Love is showing an unselfish and outgoing desire for Yahweh and others. Without true, sincere and genuine love we have no hope of eternal life, 1 Corinthians 13.
We believe Yahshua Messiah’s perfection and righteousness is imputed and credited to those who trust in Him, Phil 3:9, 2 Cor 5:21, Romans 4:3. Not only is Yahshua’s righteousness imputed to us through faith, but our sin is imputed to Yahshua. That is how Yahshua paid our sin debt to Yahweh. He had no sin in Himself, but our sin is imputed to Him so, as He suffers on the cross, He is suffering the just penalty that our sin deserves. That is why Paul can say, “I have been crucified with Yahshua, it is no longer I who live, but Yahshua who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of Yahweh, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Gal 2:20). We believe He died for the atonement for our sins, Isayah 53, Hebrews 9. He rose from the tomb to be the mediator between mankind and Yahweh, Matthew 12:40; John 14:6; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8; Hebrews 3:1; 4:14.
We believe and teach that we experience salvation through grace and mercy, Titus 3:5, Eph 2:8-9, not through ourselves, not through our own works. However, we believe that once a person is sincerely and truly saved, Yahweh’s commandments are written on their heart and minds, Heb 8:10, 10:16, Jer 31:33, and obedience to Yahweh and His commandments follows as a fruit of our salvation.
Yahshua Messiah said, if you love Him keep the Commandments, John 14:15.
We reject the Christian and worldly teaching that we can willfully sin and break Yahweh’s 10 Commandments, Sabbath, Feasts. We are to obey and uphold the law, Rom 3:31, 6:15. Grace doesn’t give us a free license to continue to break Yahweh’s law and commandments. For an explanation about this, and how salvation can be viewed, please click here.
27. Body of Messiah
We believe that the Body of Messiah governs all of Yahweh’s people and assemblies. In the Body of Messiah Yahweh blesses certain people with different gifts to further the work, Romans 12:4-8; 1Corinthians 1:10-13; 3:4-9; 12; Galatians 5:22-23; Ephesians 4:3-8.
We reject the Gregorian Calendar which is used today. We also reject the Julian calendar mostly used by the Orthodox Churches. We only follow the The Scriptural Hebrew Calendar.
We reject the “secret rapture” theory being taught so widely today. For our beliefs regarding this, please click here.
30. Christian and worldly customs and celebrations
We believe in complete alcohol abstinence. We personally never drink any alcohol at all, in any amounts and we teach others to never drink alcohol. For further reading click here.
We believe in the true gift of tongues, as known understood languages that further Yahweh’s kingdom and helps others hear the gospel in their native language. We reject the false unknown gibberish tongue movement. For further information, click here.
33. 1000 year Millennium Kingdom
For our beliefs regarding the 1000 years doctrine, please click here.
We at Yahweh’s House Ministries believe that ALL the 10 Commandments are still valid and should be obeyed and followed.
1 And YAHWEH spoke all these words, saying,
I am YAHWEH, which have brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods (Elohim) before ME.
2 You shall not make unto you any graven image; an idol, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: You shall not bow down yourself to them, nor serve them: for I YAHWEH am a jealous Heavenly Father, punishing the children for the lawbreaking of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Me, But showing mercy unto thousands of them that love ME, and keep MY Commandments.
3 You shall not take the NAME of YAHWEH in vain; for YAHWEH will not leave him unpunished who take HIS NAME in vain.
4 Remember the Shabbat (Sabbath) day, to keep it Holy (set apart). Six days shall you labour, and do all your work: But the Seventh Day is the Shabbat of YAHWEH your Heavenly Father. In it you shall not do any work, you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your manservant, nor your maidservant, nor your cattle, nor the stranger that is within your gates: For in six days YAHWEH made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the Seventh Day: therefore YAHWEH blessed the Shabbat day, and made it Holy (hallowed it and set it apart).
5 Honour your father and your mother: that your days may be long upon the land which YAHWEH gives you.
6 You shall not murder.
7 You shall not commit adultery.
8 You shall not steal.
9 You shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.
10 You shall not covet your neighbour’s house, you shall not covet your neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that belongs to your neighbour.
Yahweh’s House Ministries Co-founder – Yeremyah was introduced to “Jesus Christ” at age 33, and began realising early on that the true Name for the Messiah cannot be “Jesus” as that name is only a few hundred years old, so Yeremyah went on a humble journey to learn truth. He learned that the true birth Name for the Messiah is Yahshua and the Father’s one and true Name is Yahweh, and Yeremyah learned that Christianity taught a lot of false doctrines like hell, Sunday Holiness etc, and so he renounced Christianity and all the Paganism and false doctrines that is taught in Christianity, and began following Yahweh and Yahshua and the Holy Scriptures alone. Please click here for Yeremyah’s testimony.
Yahweh’s House Ministries Co-founder – Michaiyah was brought up in Pentecostal Christianity, then began becoming aware that Christianity is filled with Paganism and erroneous doctrines, so she renounced the name of “Jesus” and all the Pentecostal Christian false beliefs, and now follows the true Messiah – Yahshua and the Father Yahweh.
We at Yahweh’s House Ministries support complete abstinence from alcohol. We conclude that “the fruit of the vine” that Yahshua commanded to be used as a memorial of His redeeming blood was not alcohol (fermented), which in the Scripture represents human corruption and divine indignation, but unfermented (non-alcohol) and pure grape juice, a fitting emblem of Yahshua’s untainted blood shed for the remission of our sins.
The claim by some people that Yahshua used and sanctioned the use of alcoholic beverages rest on unfounded assumptions, devoid of textual, contextual and historical support. Yahshua actually abstained from all intoxicating substances and gave no sanction to His followers to use them.
Anyone who sincerely and earnestly seeks the truth will learn that the Holy Scripture is consistent in teaching moderation in the use of wholesome, unfermented beverages and abstinence from the use of intoxicating fermented beverages.
The Biblical teachings regarding the use of alcoholic beverages can be summarized this way…the Holy Scripture is consistent in teaching moderation in the use of wholesome, unfermented beverages and complete avoidance and abstinence from the use of intoxicating alcoholic fermented beverages. So when we accept the Biblical teaching that drinking alcoholic beverages is not only physically harmful but also morally wrong, we will feel compelled not only to abstain ourselves from intoxicating substances, but also to help others to do likewise.
In the Old Testament the use of alcoholic beverages is condemned, irrespective of the quantity drank. Alcohol impaires the functioning of the mind, and interferes with us making morally responsible decisions. This is also confirmed in the New Testament for anyone who seeks the truth.
It is our hope at Yahweh’s House Ministries to help others better understand that drinking alcoholic beverages is not only physically harmful, but also Biblically and morally wrong; it stops our physical, mental and spiritual well-being.
As an ex alcoholic I can state that giving up alcohol completely, has been a blessing for me and I hope others will do likewise.

We do not believe that people go to either hell or heaven at death. We believe that the dead are unconscious in their graves until they are resurrected, Job 14:12-14; Daniel 12:2; John 5:29; 1 Corinthians 15:51-56; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17; Hebrews 11:13, 39. We humans do not have immortal souls, Ezekiel 18:4, 20; Matthew 10:28, but receive immortality as a reward at the resurrection, John 17:2-3; 2 Timothy 1:10.
We believe we experience salvation by repenting of our sins, submitting and following Yahweh’s Law, and trusting our Yahshua Messiah to be our Saviour. You may have heard of Him called “Jesus Christ”, yet that is not his true Name and is a false name only created a few hundred years ago. His true Name is Yahshua, as it was given in Matthew 1:21, and it matters to know His true Name, because Acts 4:12 teaches us that there is only ONE NAME which can save us, not many multiple names. Only the Name Yahshua can save us, not “Jesus” which is a false created name by men. Those who call on the name “Jesus” to save them, are not calling on the true Name Yahshua Messiah.
The Lake of Fire, known as Gehenna, is the final destination for all those who reject Yahweh and Yahshua. The Bible does not support an ever-burning hellfire, but that the wicked who are placed in the lake of fire (Gehenna) will be destroyed quickly and completely, and will not burn forever, 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10; Malachi 4:1-3; Psalm 37:20-22; Jude 7. “Hell” is the Hebrew sheol in the Old Testament, which means grave or pit; the New Testament counterpart is the Greek hades, which also means grave.
So many false preachers and teachers will tell you that the Creator will burn and torture the lost forever, keeping them alive in an endless fire where they will weep and scream in total agony and horror for all eternity. But it’s a lie from Satan and we expose these false preachers and teacher and show you the truth.
