Jesus asks the Church to believe in Him. This is the faith and the truth from the beginning. Jesus Christ is the way and the key and the fountain of life. All things are possible for those who believe.
Our church ministry relies on the King James Version for all Bible study in English. God’s Word is our teacher. The Wise Creator, Yahuwah, is our All-Parent.
The best way to attend Sdbibestudy Church is by studying the teachings of the Holy Spirit. Keep studying and be motivated by good thoughts. If you ever have any questions, ask them to Jesus Christ, Yahushuah Ha’Mashiak, in prayer from your heart.
CHRISTIANITY IS A CHURCH OF HUMANITY
Salvation is a free gift of Eternal Life for all who believe in Jesus the Nazarene. Salvation is Eternal. It can never be lost. God makes a way in the wilderness. Eternal life means forever life. Salvation is supernatural power to overcome (grace). My question for the reader is, “Do you believe in Jesus the Nazarene, the son of God?” If you do, this is the joy of the Lord. God’s children, no longer lost in exile, are one family and nation of Hebrews.
Jesus Christ, Yahushuah Ha’Mashiak, is the Anointed Savior of Humanity
John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
John 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.
John 3 : 16-17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
THE TORAH AND THE CHURCH
We live in love and as the Holy Ghost, the Holy Spirit, guides us in all truth, and to all truth. There are sins that we are tempted by, and this nature of sin means that we are all sinners. We are forgiven by Jesus Christ when we repent for our sins, part of growing and learning and maturing in righteousness and justification and sanctification.
We need the Torah, meaning God’s teachings, to educate us in knowledge so that we don’t become lawless and dissipated. Jesus Christ fulfilled all the Torah (God’s instructions), and He declared that if we love Him we should keep His commandments. Our Faith accompanies our works. Jesus speaks to us in the ways we can relate to by His Holy Ghost, that is, the guidance of the Holy Spirit, which is in our hearts.
We as humans undergo various trials of faith. We should study and learn to apply the truth and love and holiness in our lives as we grow in life as the Holy Spirit leads us into all truth. Grace is power to overcome our infirmities, to give glory to our Wise Creator (God) in Heaven and the Lord Jesus Christ. The Torah commands us to love our neighbor as our own self.
MISAPPLICATIONS OF MOSAIC LAW
All the parts of the Torah involving Levitical duties and their offices, and ANYTHING involving the shedding of blood (including punishments such as stoning) are already fulfilled and finished by Jesus Christ, our High Priest, Passover Lamb, and King of the Church, Israel, the Bride, and the Elect. Jesus Christ is Lord.
We are not expected by God to act out any components of Torah relating to harming people or animals in any way that sheds blood for God’s sake. This is what God teaches us in the New Testament, comprising a New Covenant, that modified and updated the Old Testament. The New Covenant is sealed forever in the blood of Jesus of Nazareth, God’s Son, making it a holy covenant and transforming and freeing our identities into the image of God.
Jesus Has Already Commanded Us to Keep the Torah
Matthew 5 : 18-20 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
ETERNAL LIFE IS IN JESUS CHRIST
1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.
John 11:26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
John 12:46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.
John 4:14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
CHURCH STATEMENT OF FAITH
This internet and non-internet congregation of Bible Believers is committed to the Holy Scripture as the infallible Word of God. In doctrine and practice, we seek to represent the Life of Jesus Christ and to live by the standards of both the Old and New Testament.
We recognize that the New Testament is the interpretation of the Old and does not eliminate its principles of righteousness. Rather it strengthens them and then provides the believer with the grace of Christ to live holy in an unholy world. Our holiness is never a product of mere human struggle, but always the results of complete trust toward the mercy of our Savior.
Self-righteousness is just as dangerous as worldliness, and we seek to escape both by abiding in Christ Jesus every hour. Membership in Sdbiblestudy Church encourages your commitment to these Biblical principles.
RESOLUTION ON PRINCIPLES
A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a congregation of Believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel; observing the ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. Each congregation operates under the Lordship of Christ. In such a congregation each member is responsible and accountable to Jesus Christ as Lord.
The New Testament speaks also of the church as the Body of Christ that includes all of the redeemed of all the ages, believers from every tribe, tongue, people, and nation.
We hereby remind ourselves that the Scriptures enjoin us at all times to examine our own hearts. The continuing and consistent life of holiness requires this. Conditions of our day desperately require it. The subtle encroachment of worldliness is a very real and unrelenting threat to the Church. We must therefore beware lest we become conformed to the world, or lest a love for the world take root in our hearts to manifest itself as the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eye, and the pride of life.
THE CHURCH FAMILY
God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption.
Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. It is God’s unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church and to provide for the man and the woman in marriage the framework for intimate companionship, the channel of sexual expression according to Biblical standards, and the means for procreation of the human race.
The husband and wife are of equal worth before God, since both are created in God’s image. The marriage relationship models the way God relates to His people. The husband is the spiritual head of the household.
Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord. Parents are to demonstrate to their children God’s pattern for marriage. Parents are to teach their children spiritual and moral values and to lead them, through consistent lifestyle example and loving discipline, to make choices based on Biblical truth. Children are to honor and obey their parents.
Sdbiblestudy Church is committed to presenting the Full Gospel of the Bible to the world. We believe in such truths such as: the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. The Millennial Reign of Christ; End Time prophecies; exposing False Prophets and Prophetesses; and defending the infallible King James Version of the Holy Bible. We want to help you grow in your faith in Jesus Christ and be healthy through the power of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit. We believe that every true Christian is a light of Jesus Christ in this sin-cursed world.
The follow is a list of the fundamental doctrines of Sdbiblestudy Church Sdbiblestudy.org.
THE DIVINE INSPIRATION, HOLINESS, AND AUTHORITY OF SCRIPTURE
The Holy Bible was written by human beings who were divinely inspired and is God’s revelation of Himself to man. The Holy Bible is a treasure of divine instruction. It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any error. Therefore, all Scripture is absolutely true and trustworthy.
Scripture reveals the principles by which Yahuwah judges us, and therefore its truths will remain to the end of the world. God’s Word is the true center of Christian unity, and Jesus Christ is the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, and religious opinions should be tried. All scripture is a testimony to Christ Jesus, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation.
Living in the Word of God is important and beautiful. Obeying each word is the benefit of a godly life. We are holy by the great work of His cleansing blood and by His righteousness, and then we obey that righteousness with our heart by living in the Word. Jesus said, “But he answered and said, it is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:4).
YAHUWAH (“I AM”), THE CREATOR, THE ALL-PARENT
Yahuwah (The Lord God, “I AM”) reigns with providential care over His universe and all Creation, all His creatures, and the flow of the stream of human history according to the purposes of His grace. He is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all wise. God is Father in truth to those who have become children of God through faith in Jesus Christ, Yahushuah Ha’Mashiak. Yahuwah is one God existing eternally in three persons: namely, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
Scripture states that there is one, and only one, living and true God, the Eternal. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being. He is the Creator, Redeemer, and Ruler of the entire universe. God is infinite in holiness and perfect in every way. God is all powerful and all knowing; and His perfect knowledge extends to all things, past, present, and future, including the future thoughts and decisions of His creations. To our Creator we owe and pledge our highest love, reverence, and obedience.
JESUS CHRIST, YAHUSHUAH HA’MASHIAK, GOD THE SON
Yahushuah Ha’Mashiak, Jesus Christ, is the only begotten Son the Father, Yahuwah, our Creator’s incarnation as Jesus Christ; He was conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary; Jesus is anointed King, Priest, and Prophet of Israel forever; Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead; He ascended to heaven and is eternally alive today enthroned at the right hand of the Father as our Great Intercessor.
We trust in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, and incarnation of Jesus Christ according to the Word.
“But as many as received him, to them gave the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth,” John 1: 12-14.
THE HISTORIC LIFE AND PROPHESIED RETURN OF CHRIST
Jesus perfectly revealed and did the will of God; He took upon Himself human nature with its demands and necessities and identified Himself completely with mankind yet without sin. He honored the divine law by His personal obedience by His substitutionary death and sacrifice on the cross for the redemption of the souls of all humanity. Christ is how Yahuwah made provision for the redemption of men and women from sin.
Christ was raised from the dead with a glorified body; and appeared to His disciples as the person who was with them before His crucifixion. He ascended into heaven and is now exalted at the right hand of God the Father where He is the One Mediator, fully God, fully man, in whose Person is effected the reconciliation between God and man.
Jesus Christ, Yahushuah Ha’ Mashiak, will return in power and glory to judge the world and to consummate His redemptive mission. He now dwells, by the power of the Holy Spirit in all believers as the living and ever presence of the Lord in His death for sinners on the cross, His literal and bodily resurrection from the dead, His ascension into heaven, His present exaltation, authority and intercession in heaven on behalf of His people.
GOD, THE HOLY GHOST
The Holy Spirit, the Holy Ghost, is the sacred life of Yahuwah, fully divine. The Holy Ghost inspired holy human beings of old to write the Scriptures and enables humanity to understand spiritual truth; The Holy Ghost exalts Jesus Christ and convicts mankind of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. The Holy Spirit calls all humanity to salvation in Christ and effects the regeneration of souls.
At the moment of regeneration the Holy Spirit baptizes every believer into the Body of Christ. The Holy Spirit also cultivates Christian character, comforts believers, and bestows the spiritual gifts by which they serve God through His church.
The Holy Spirit seals the believer unto the day of final redemption; the Holy Spirit’s presence in the Christian is the guarantee that God will bring the believer into the fullness of the stature of Christ. The Holy Spirit enlightens and empowers the believer with the gifts of the Holy Spirit; and confers the fruit of Spirit and the church in worship, evangelism, and service.
THE FALLEN STATE OF HUMANITY AND THE CHURCH
The fall of the human race, which was created pure and upright but fell by deliberate transgression, shows that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. The fall from glory shows that repentance is commanded by God for all, and repentance and resurrection is necessary for the forgiveness of sins. In the beginning Adam and Eve were innocent of sin and were endowed by God the Creator with freedom of choice. By their free choice they sinned against God and brought sin into the human race.
Through the temptation of Satan, Adam and Eve violated the command of God, and fell from their original innocence thereby causing their posterity to inherit a nature inclined toward sin. Therefore, as soon as a person is capable of moral action, he or she is by nature inclined to be a transgressor, and this sinful nature is under God’s condemnation.
Only the grace of God can bring a person into Yahuwah’s holy fellowship and enable that person to fulfill the creative purpose of God. The sacredness of human personality is evident in that God created man and woman in His own image, and in that Christ died for us; therefore, every soul possesses full dignity and is worthy of respect and Christian love.
THE RESTORATION OF SOULS, THE CHURCH BORN AGAIN
Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification.
Our church teaches no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and our kinsman redeemer. Salvation through faith in Jesus Christ, Yahushuah Ha’Mashiak, results in the changing work of the Holy Spirit in New Birth. Our new life is motivated by God’s love. Unless you are born again, you have no hope of enjoying the glories of heaven nor escaping the terrors of Hell.
“Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God,” (John 3:3).
Salvation is a free gift of God granted to lost and undeserving men and women who trust in the righteousness of Christ and humble themselves in submission to his will. Accept God’s Word that He loves you and wants to give you an abundant life.
“I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly,” (John 10:10).
THE AUTHORITY OF THE CHRISTIAN IN THE CHURCH
Christians receive their authority from Jesus Christ and all authority is vested in Him. Jesus’ power is always greater. It is true that Jesus Christ left awesome spiritual power to His church.
“And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given to me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and lo am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
THE KINGDOM OF GOD
The Kingdom of God includes both Yahuwah’s general sovereignty over the universe and His particular kingship in the hearts of men who willfully acknowledge Him as King. Particularly the Kingdom is the realm of salvation into which men enter by trustful, childlike commitment to Jesus Christ. Christians ought to pray and to labor that the Kingdom may come and God’s will be done on earth. The full consummation of the Kingdom awaits the return of Jesus Christ and the end of this age.
THE CHURCH LEXICON REGARDING SALVATION
Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward Yahuwah (“I AM”). Faith is the acceptance of God and commitment of the entire personality to the Wise Creator (God) and His ways.
Regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of God’s grace whereby believers become new creatures in Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart wrought by the Holy Spirit through conviction of sin, to which the sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace.
Justification is God’s gracious and full acquittal upon principles of His righteousness of all sinners who repent and believe in
Christ. Justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ; justification brings the believer unto a relationship of peace and favor with God.
Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, by which the believer is set apart to God’s purposes, and is enabled to progress toward moral and spiritual maturity through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him. Sanctification follows after the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ, through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost. Growth in grace should continue throughout the regenerate person’s life.
Election is the gracious purpose of Yahuwah, according to which He regenerates, justifies, sanctifies, and glorifies repentant sinners. God’s grace is consistent with the free agency of man, and comprehends all the means in connection with the end. Grace is the glorious display of God’s sovereign goodness, and Yahuwah is infinitely wise, holy, and unchangeable, admonishing the proud and promoting humility in the believer.
Holiness to be God’s standard of living for His people. Holiness of life and conduct for service in obedience to the command of God attained by believers as they submit to the Holy Spirit in preparation for Christ’s return.
Glorification is the culmination of salvation and is the final blessed and abiding state of the redeemed.
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS GOD’S GIFT OF GRACE TO THE CHURCH
All true believers endure and keep the faith to the end. Those whom God has accepted in Christ, and sanctified by His Spirit, will never fall away from the state of grace, but shall persevere to the end.
Believers have free will to fall into sin through neglect and temptation, whereby they grieve the Spirit, impair their graces and comforts, and bring dishonor on the cause of Christ and temporary judgments on themselves; yet they shall be kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation.
Evidences of the Holy Spirit
- The operation of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit as the Spirit enables recovery of sound mind, divine healing, and deliverance from Satan.
- The fruits of the Holy Spirit demonstrate the love of Yahuwah in the transformation of our character over time.
- Deliverance and liberation is through the divine authority of Yahuwah. The Holy Spirit powers spiritual warfare and the casting out of devils.
- The Holy Spirit provides humanity insights, interpretations, prophecies, dreams, visions, and numerous miracles of all kinds.
THE END TIMES
Yahuwah, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world to its appropriate end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth; the dead will be raised; and those in Christ who remain will be taken up. Jesus Christ, Yahushuah Ha’Mashiak, God the Son, will righteously judge all humanity. The unrighteous will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. The righteous in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord.
The duty and privilege of every follower of Christ and of every church of the Lord Jesus Christ is to endeavor to make disciples of all nations. The new birth of man’s spirit by God’s Holy Spirit means the birth of love for others.
Evangelistic efforts on the part of all Christ’s followers are commanded in the teachings of Christ. The Lord Jesus Christ has commanded the preaching of the gospel to all nations. It is the duty of every child of God to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ by verbal witness, a Christian lifestyle, and by other methods in harmony with the gospel of Christ.
Christianity is the faith of enlightenment and intelligence. In Jesus Christ abide all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. All sound learning is therefore a part of our Christian heritage. The new birth opens all human faculties and creates a thirst for knowledge. An adequate system of Christian education is necessary to a complete spiritual program for Christ’s people.
In Christian education there should be a proper balance between academic freedom and academic responsibility. Freedom in any civilization is always limited and never absolute. Part of one’s education is learning how to be a cheerful giver. Part of one’s education is learning how to discern between right and wrong.
Sdbiblestudy Church stands for the whole Bible rightly divided. We believe that the whole Word of God is infallible and unchanging. All of His Word is our Standard.

TEN COMMANDMENTS APPLY TO THE CHURCH
THE BOOK OF EXODUS, Chapter 20, Verses 1 through 17:
And God spake all these words, saying, I am Yahuwah thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me.
Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I Yahuwah thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.
Thou shalt not take the name of the Yahuwah thy God in vain; for Yahuwah will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.
Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work: But the seventh day is the sabbath of Yahuwah thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates: For in six days Yahuwah made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore Yahuwah blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.
Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Yahuwah thy God giveth thee.
Thou shalt not kill.
Thou shalt not commit adultery.
Thou shalt not steal.
Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.
