In the 4th Commandment (Exodus 20:8-11), God tells us to '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 the LORD 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 the LORD made heaven and earth,
the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore
the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

Our church has been in existence since 1918. We are Hebrew Pentecostal, teaching the
relevance of the Old and New Testament principles pertaining to proper religious practice
and current day worship.

The 7th day, 'Saturday,' is the true Sabbath of the Lord God, beginning on Friday at
the going down of the sun and ending on Saturday at the going down of the sun. We also
observe the Holy Festivals described by the scriptures and the doctrine of Jesus Christ.

It was the custom of Jesus Christ (the Way, the Truth, the Light) to go each Sabbath to
the synagogue (Luke 4:16) to read out of the law and prophets and preach unto them.
It was also the custom of the apostles, the immediate followers of Jesus, to go into the
synagogue each sabbath (Acts 17:2). Therefore, we strictly observe the Sabbath as
a day of rest and worship.
