Statement of Core Beliefs
- Monotheism - There is only one true God (Deuteronomy/Devarim 4:35, 32:39; 1 Chronicles 17:20; Isaiah/Yeshayahu 44:6, 46:9-10) who created the universe (the Creation). He exists as multiple persons (extensions of Himself) within His Creation, and the foremost persons of God are embodied in the Holy Trinity as the Father, the Son Mashiach Yeshua (Jesus Christ), and the Ruach Kodesh - Holy Spirit.
- God is holy – There is no other like God in His divine nature of being absolutely trustworthy and righteous (Deuteronomy/Devarim 32:4; Titus 1:2; Hebrews 6:18; 2 Timothy 2:13; Numbers/Bamidbar 23:19), all-powerful and all-knowing (Matthew 19:26; Mark 10:27, 14:36; Psalm/Tehillim 147:5; Genesis/Bereishit 18:14; Isaiah/Yeshayahu 46:9-11, 50:2-3; Romans 11:33), and eternal and unchanging (Malachi 3:6).
- Divinity of Yeshua Mashiach (Jesus Christ) – Christ was God embodied as a man, the Son, God’s Word become flesh (John 1:14). He is equal with God, being called Mighty God and Everlasting Father (Isaiah 9:6/Yeshayahu 9:5; John 14:9-11; Colossians 2:9; John 20:28). He came in the flesh as the Son of Man to fulfill prophecies of the Child Messiah (Isaiah 9:6/Yeshayahu 9:5) who was born of a virgin (Isaiah/Yeshayahu 7:14), Mary (Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-2:20). God has given much proof of Christ's equality with God in scripture, however, He also gave even more "physical" proof hidden in His holy Hebrew name, יהוה (Yahovah), as well as His names in Christ. See The Actual Names of God and Christ for details.
- Christ’s blood atonement and promise of heaven - Mashiach Yeshua (Christ Jesus) was sinless (Romans 3:10-12, 3:23, 5:12; Hebrews 4:15; 1 Peter 2:22; 1 John 3:5; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Revelation 5:1-14; 1 Samuel 2:2; 1 Kings 8:46; Psalm 14:1-3, 53:1-3) and sacrificed Himself on the cross to atone for all the sin of those who believe in Him. This belief is the basis of the New Covenant, which also ensures salvation (entrance) in heaven for all who retain their faith and public loyalty in Mashiach Yeshua.
- The resurrections of Christ and believers - Mashiach Yeshua (Christ Jesus) was resurrected into angelic form after His death and ascended to heaven to make His anointment as High Priest and the mediator of the New Covenant permanent and eternal. His resurrection showed the first fruits (the very first) of the resurrections of all believers, which will happen when He returns to reign as the King Messiah over the whole world.
- Grace in Christ does not come from working on sinlessness or righteousness - Eternal salvation in Mashiach Yeshua (Christ Jesus) and the New Covenant is a completely free gift imparted solely by God, and not dependent on further works of righteousness (sanctification) on the believer’s part (Ephesians 2:8-9). Faith in Christ begins the acknowledgement of God's gift of Grace, but it is public acknowledgement of that faith that grants the gift to the believer (Matthew 10:32; Romans 10:8-10) and seals the Holy Spirit within the believer (1 John 4:15). This sealing of the Spirit is the rebirth of the believer in God’s kingdom (John 3:3-5) and was promised by God as part of the New Thing and New Covenant through the prophet Jeremiah/Yirmiyahu (Jeremiah 31:22, 31:31-34/Yirmiyahu 31:21, 31:30-33). This sealing is also the notion of being “born again” that is most important for getting eternal salvation in Christ and is what God meant by, "I will put My law/torah within them and write it on their hearts, and I will be their God and they will be My people" (Jeremiah 31:33/Yirmiyahu 31:32). Learn more about this in The True Gospel and Imposters.
- Grace in Christ can be lost - Eternal salvation in Mashiach Yeshua (Christ Jesus) and the New Covenant can be lost if one does not retain belief in Christ or maintain public loyalty to Him (Matthew 10:32-33). For this reason, the sealing or rebirth of the Spirit within believers is not called an unconditional guarantee, but a good deposit entrusted to us, which must be guarded (2 Timothy 1:14 NIV, NASB). Sin in general does not make one lose eternal salvation in Christ, but it greatly affects a person in this life. Learn more about these things in The True Gospel and Imposters.
- Repentance - Recognizing sin and turning away from it is a very important part of a believer's life. Sin doesn't just affect the individual sinner, but also affects families, descendants, organizations, communities, and nations, so it is important for the common good for everyone to keep from sin.
- Inerrancy and infallibility of God’s word – God’s words are inerrant and infallible only as He originally spoke and meant. The translations and interpretations presented in Bibles or Tanach/Tanakh (Jewish Torah, Prophets, and Writings/Psalms) are not the same thing and do have errors, so there is no single perfect Bible translation. Ancient manuscripts in the original languages of scripture are the most reliable and uncorrupted record of God’s words, however, their interpretations are not inerrant or infallible. See Choosing a Bible for more about selecting good translations.
- Authenticated scripture is a trusted and necessary standard – The 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, which were deemed authenticated by the early church, are the rule and standard of scripture and God’s word that we need to use. These texts were inspired by God and written by His anointed servants to teach, correct, and train mankind in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16). Other texts are not considered authenticated scripture and should be treated accordingly. They may contain historical facts and truth, but often also contain false teaching and opinions based in false beliefs and teachings.
- Hebrew Jewish roots are still important – We are one People under Mashiach Yeshua (Christ Jesus), no longer Jew or Gentile (Romans 10:12-13; 1 Corinthians 12:12-26; Galatians 3:26-29; Ephesians 2:11-22, 3:6; Colossians 3:11; 1 Peter 2:9-10; also Romans 12:4-5). This means we are combined into one People and share the heritage of God’s first people, the Hebrews or Jews. This is why you see this ministry using the Hebrew names and titles for God and Christ. They are truer to how people spoke in the time of Yeshua. However, keeping Hebrew heritage and the Law of Moses (Jewish Law or Torah) are different things. As Christians, we no longer live by the Law of Moses, but as a People of God, we certainly must keep and honor the ancient history and heritage of God’s people.
- One Church, One People – There is only one church of God and there should be no division or denominations, though it is God's will the church and His people of all sects be divided because it was His plan (Matthew 13:24-30, 13:36-43) and because of sin and judgment. The church is defined solely as those who believe in Mashiach Yeshua (Christ Jesus) as divine Savior Messiah, and is not defined by adherence to any specific teachings, traditions, or rituals. However, what a person believes and lives by can greatly affect their standing with God and placement in His kingdom.
Statement from Elder Minister Ty Alexander Huynh
The Lord said of His people, "They are not a people of discernment" (Isaiah/Yeshayahu 27:11),
which is just as true today as in the time of Isaiah. It is evident in all the sin, false teaching, and quick acceptance of false spiritual guidance and gifts in the church and other believing sects, such as Judaism and Islam.
This ministry tackles that by teaching the discernment that is lacking in God's people, and in fact,
the 3rd Compass name was divinely inspired to stand for drawing up and measuring the world, especially God's kingdom and spiritual things.
And like there are different kinds of compasses that are tools for different purposes,
this ministry is God's tool with different but essential purposes.
The world's needs are addressed in two ways:
Problems of the present are prevented from continuing into the future by correcting the teaching of a world and people lost in darkness.
Without good, correct teaching, the world and God's people will walk endlessly in the same errors of the past and present.
- To correct bad teaching with good, so that false versions of God's kingdom and righteousness
are removed, along with the sin and curses they bring.
This will clear the way before God (Malachi 3:1), to turn the hearts of the parents to the children and the hearts of the children to their parents (Malachi 4:6/3:24) and make ready a people prepared for the Lord (Luke 1:17).
- To spread material aid for the poor, needy, and global missions.
The church is united by the truth of Christ and all God's people are united in the truth of God, but we are divided by the details.
A reason for that is most people are not drinking pure spiritual water, neither in scripture nor other spiritual guidance.
Some details are not as important to get correct, but others are critical.
I've worked hard for many years to get important teaching correct as I was guided by our El Hai, Living God, to understand things as they truly are.
I learned more difficult truths through hard lessons, but was shown how my calling to teach and minister for the Lord was predestined long before I was born.
May you accept what the Lord has revealed and attain the wisdom God's people need. It is for our greater good to
come out of the darkness that still has them in chains.
