The Mission of The WAY Everlasting Ekklesia is to fulfill The Great Commission that Yeshua of Nazareth gave to His followers to go into the World, make Disciples of all People, to baptize them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Sprit and to teach them to obey everything He commanded us (Matthew 28:19-20).

We believe the Holy Scriptures to be God's Eternal Word revealed to us via Old and New Covenant (The Holy Bible); having been preserved through the centuries, that through placing our faith in His Word we then will know Him who is Truth; We also believe it to be the verbally inspired Word of God, inerrant and infallible as well as the final authority in matters of Faith and Life (Ps. 107:11; 119:160: Mark 7:6-13; John 10:35; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; Heb. 1:1-3; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Proverbs 30:5; Matthew 4:4).

We believe that God is Sovereign and created all things out of nothing for His Purpose and Glory (Gen. 1-2; Job 38-41; Ps. 19:1-4; Isa. 37:16; Jer. 10: 11-12; Rom 4:17; Heb. 11:3).

We believe that there is ONE Infinite and Perfect God (Deut. 6:4; Lev 19:2; Deut. 33:27; Isa 6:1-3; 40:28-31; Acts 17:24; Ps. 90:2), eternally existing in three distinct and equal persons - The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. These Three are Co-Equal and Co-Eternal. Each possesses the characteristics of personality as well as the Nature and Perfections of Deity (Genesis 1:26; Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 3:16-17; Matt. 28:19-20; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-3; 15:26; 16:12-15; Col. 1:15-20; Hebrews 1:1-4; Hebrews 3:7-11; I John 5:7).  ***ELOHIM***

We believe that man was created in the Image of God but because of Adam's willful sin, the Human Race incurred both physical and spiritual death; thus man became alienated from God and incapable of remedying his sinful condition by his own means. All people are born with a sinful nature that stands in rebellion against our Creator (Gen. 1:26-31; Gen. 3:1-7; Rom. 3:10-18, 23; 5:12-21; Eph. 2:1-3).

We believe that God made an Everlasting and irrevocable Covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob (Gen 12:1-3; 15:9-21; 17:1-8). It includes the unconditional election of Israel as God's Chosen People, the Gift of the Land of Israel, and the Promise of the Messiah through whom all the Families of the Earth will be blessed (2 Sam. 7:6-16; Jer. 31:23-40; Romans 9-11; Gal. 3:6-4:7).

We believe that God The Son pre-existed as The Eternal Word, took on human nature, and was known as Yeshua (Jesus) The Messiah (John 1:1-18). We believe in His Full Deity (Isa. 9:6-7; John 10:30; 20:28; Acts 2:14-36; Col. 2:9), His Virgin Conception (Isa. 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:34-35), His Full Humanity (Heb. 2:14-18; 4:15), and His Sinless and Perfect Life that fully pleased His Father (2 Cor. 5:21; Heb. 4:15; 7:26; 1 Pet. 2:22; Isa. 53:9). We believe Jesus The Messiah revealed the Mind of God (Deut. 18:15; Acts 3:22-24; Matt. 13:57; John 1:18; Heb. 1:1-4), offered Himself once and for all as the Only Atoning and Substitutionary Sacrifice for the Sins of Humanity on the Cross as the Lamb of God(through the shedding of His Pure and Holy Blood); bearing the Judgment demanded by God's Holy Justice against sin, thus making it possible for God to remain Just and at the same time to justify those who believe in Jesus (Heb. 4:4:14-5:10; 7:1-3; 9:6-10:18; 1 John 2:2; Rev 1:5). We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ rose bodily from the Dead, never to die again, and is ascended to the Right Hand of The Father, where He intercedes as High Priest and Advocate on behalf of all who believe in Him (Rom. 8:34; Heb. 7:25; 9:24; 1 John 2:1-2). As the Risen Messiah, He exercises Divine Authority from God The Father and will return to reign on Earth in Power and Glory for a thousand years (2 Sam 7:12-16; Matt 2:1-11; Luke 1:32-33; Acts 2:30-36; Rev. 20:4).

We believe in the Full Deity and Personality of The Holy Spirit (Matt 28:19; Acts 5:3-4; Eph. 4:30). He bears witness to Yeshua through the Word of God (John 14:25-27; 16; 13; 1 Cor. 2:10-11). He convicts (John 16:7-11), regenerates True Believers (John 3:3-5), and Baptizes them into the One True Church, The Body of Messiah (1 Cor. 6:11; 12:13; Titus 3:5). He indwells, fills, guides, helps, bestows spiritual gifts, empowers them for service and holy living and produces in believers the Fruit of the Spirit (John 14:15-21; 1 Cor. 6:19; Eph. 1:13-14; 5:18; Rom. 12:6-8; 1 Cor. 12: 1-31; Eph. 4:11). Regeneration by The Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation (Titus 3:5), and in the sanctifying power of The Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life (Galatians 5:16-25).

We believe that salvation for both Jews and Gentiles is available only through Jesus and His Finished Work (John 14:6; Acts 4:12). We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts. Our Lord Jesus Christ becomes our Savior when we repent of our sins (forsake them) and believe on Him as He is revealed in the Word of God and we are miraculously born again of The Holy Spirit and become, as children of God, partakers of His divine nature and of eternal life. Thus, through repentance and faith in Jesus’s completed work on His Cross at Calvary we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation (Acts 2:21, 3:19; I John 1:9).

(John 3:16; John 10:28-30; Acts 16:31; Rom. 8:28-30; 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9; Galatians 2:16, 3:8; Titus 3:5; Rom. 3:21-4:25; Heb. 9:22; 13:5). The Holy Spirit seals true believers in Jesus the Messiah for the Day of Redemption (Eph. 1:13-14).

The Blood that Jesus the Messiah shed on the Cross of Calvary was sinless and is 100% sufficient to cleanse mankind of all sin. Yeshua allowed Himself to be punished for both our sinfulness and our sins, enabling all those who believe to be free from the penalty of sin, which is death (I John 1:7; Revelation 1:5, 5:9; Colossians 1:20; Romans 3:10-12, 23, 5:9; John 1:29).

We believe in divine healing for the total man, spirit, mind and body and that this healing is accomplished in the redemptive work of Christ on the Cross and appropriated in the believer’s life through prayer (Isaiah 53:5; Matthew 8:17; 1 Peter 2:24; James 5:13-16). Healing of the sick is illustrated in the life and ministry of Jesus, and included in the commission of Jesus to His disciples. It is given as a sign, which is to follow believers. It is also a part of Yeshua's work on the Cross and one of the Gifts of the Spirit. (Psalm 103:2-3; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:17-18; Acts 8:6-7; I Corinthians 12:9, 28; Romans 11:29).

The Church of Jesus Christ is the universal, spiritual body of believers from every tribe, tongue, kindred and race of peoples, and is in-dwelt by God through the Holy Spirit and divinely empowered to fulfill The Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:46-48; Acts 1:8, 11; 2 Corinthians 5:20) on earth through divine appointments (Eph. 1:20-23; 2:19- 22; 1 Cor. 12:12-14; Col. 1:18-19; Rev. 5:9). Every person who is born of The Spirit is an integral part of the Church as a member of the Body of Believers. There is a spiritual unity of all Believers in our Lord Jesus Christ. (Hebrews 12:23; John 17:11, 20-23).

We believe that God through His Word promises those who believe, all things that pertain to life and godliness, including not only salvation from the penalty of sin but instruction in righteousness for present sanctification and victorious living to the Glory of God (2 Peter 1:3-10). Sanctification is the ongoing process of yielding to God’s Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Messiah's character in us. It is through the present ministry of The Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Believer in Messiah is enabled to live a godly life (I Thessalonians 4:3, 5:23; II Corinthians 3:18, 6:14-18, II Thessalonians 2:1-3, Romans 8:29, 12:1-2, Hebrews 2:11).

We believe that these Biblical Traditions are to be observed in obedience to our Lord by all believers until Christ's return: water baptism, the Lord's Supper and the washing of the Saint's feet (Matthew 26:26-30; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26). Baptism by immersion as a symbol and witness of the New Birth (Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 3:20-22). Following faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, the new convert is commanded by the Word of God to be baptized in water in the Name of The Father and of The Son and of The Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:38). The Lord's Supper: Time of communion among brethren when we remember Yeshua's sacrifice for us by eating bread and drinking fruit of the vine (symbolically the Body and Blood); this is done in remembrance of Messiah's sacrifice on the Cross (Matthew 26:26-29; Mark 16:16; Acts 8:12, 36-38; 10:47-48; I Corinthians 10:16, 11:23-25). Washing of the Saint's Feet: No servant is greater than his master (John 13:1-17; Luke 22:23-27). In today's culture this is mostly represented by acts of kindness in serving the real needs of other believers as God gives us the capacity to do so in His Great Love.

The Baptism of The Holy Spirit, is given to believers by our Heavenly Father, who ask Him by faith and walking in obedience, with all the evidence manifested in The Book of Acts (Acts 1:5-8, 2:1-4, 17, 38-39, 8:14- 17, 10:38, 44-47, 11:15-17, 19:1-6). We believe in the Baptism in The Holy Spirit as an enduement of power for all Believers to preach The Gospel throughout the whole Earth (Ephesians 5:18). This Holy Spirit Baptism results in a deeper expression of spiritual fruit (Galatians 5:22-23), a greater growth in Christ-likeness (2 Corinthians 3:18), a genuine manifestation of spiritual gifts (1 Corinthians 12:1-11), and a more effective prayer life (Romans 8:26-27; Joel 2:28-29; Mark 16:17). We believe the Baptism in The Holy Spirit is received subsequent to salvation and at times happens almost immediately after repentance towards God and Faith towards The Lord Yeshua as The Messiah (John 14:17; Acts 2:4; 10:45-56; 11:15-17; 19:6). The Lord Jesus is The Baptizer {God in the Flesh - Immanuel} (Matthew 3:11) and all Believers within The Church Age are eligible to receive this Baptism for the purpose of empowerment, faithfull witnessing and ministering (Acts 1:8; 2:39).

The Holy Spirit is manifested through a variety of Spiritual Gifts to build and sanctify the Church, demonstrate the validity of the Resurrection, and confirm the Power of the Gospel. The Bible lists of these Gifts are not necessarily exhaustive, and the gifts may occur in various combinations. All Believers are commanded to earnestly desire the manifestation of the Gifts in their lives. These Gifts always operate in harmony with the Scriptures and should never be used in violation of Biblical parameters. (Hebrews 2:4; Romans 1:11, 12:4-8; Ephesians 4:16; II Timothy 1:5-16, 4:14; I Corinthians 12:1-31, 14:1-40; I Peter 4:10).

We believe that after living only one life on Earth, at death, the souls of the Redeemed pass immediately into God's presence in Heaven, to remain there until the resurrection of the body at Messiah's return for the Church. We also believe that at death the souls of the lost go to Hell, where they remain until they are brought before God at The Great White Throne final judgment to be judged according to their works and cast into The Lake of Fire, there to remain eternally with the Devil and the Fallen Angels (2 Cor. 5:8; Mark 9:42-48; Luke 16:22-28; Psalm 9:17; Matt. 7:21-23 & 25:31-46; John 3:36; Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 14:9-11, 20:12-15, 21:8; Rev. 14:11 & 20:15).

We believe in The Blessed Hope, the bodily resurrection of the Redeemed at the pre-millennial return of Jesus (The Messiah) Christ for His Church, God will call home His Church prior to His Return to Earth (the Second Coming), and at that future moment the souls and spirits of those who have died will be reunited with their bodies, which are now immortal, and that Believers who are alive at that time, their bodies likewise transformed into immortality when they will be caught up together with them to meet Jesus Christ in the air, ever to be with the Lord forever (1 Cor. 15: 51-58; 1 Thess. 4:13-18; Titus 2:13).

We believe in the personal, bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ to Earth in order to rescue Israel after the World has been plunged into the Great Tribulation period culminating at the Battle of Armageddon and to establish His Millennial Kingdom, reigning over this Earth from His father David's throne in Jerusalem, and that His Redeemed will reign with Him in resurrected bodies for 1,000 years (2 Sam. 7:12-16; Dan. 2:44; Luke 1:30-33; Matthew 24:30, 26:63-64; Acts 1:9-11; I Thessalonians 4:15-17; II Thessalonians 1:7-8; Revelation 1:7).

Heaven is the eternal dwelling place for all Believers in the Gospel of Jesus our Messiah (Matthew 5:3, 12, 20, 6:20, 19:21, 25:34; John 17:24; II Corinthians 5:1; Hebrews 11:16; I Peter 1:4).

We believe and look forward to the perfect New Heavens and the New Earth and the Holy Jerusalem, the City of God, descending out of Heaven and filled with God's Glory (Revelation 21:1-2, 10).

We will live and dwell with Him there forever following His Millennial Reign on Earth. And so shall we forever be with the Lord!
