STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe one immaterial, eternal Spirit who has been referred to as God, Yahweh, Jehovah, Allah, Brahma, and Ahura Mazda created everything and everybody; and that throughout the ages He has been worshipped in many ways, and associated with many religions.
We believe the Spirit we refer to as God isn’t a religious, ethnic, or national god of some, but is the Creator God of all who operates also as Father, Judge, and Sustainer of everything and everybody.
We believe God is unchanged in being the Alpha and Omega, has no equals, and is defined as the universal characteristics of love, compassion, mercy, honesty, peace, forgiveness, patience, fairness, gratitude, respect, dependability, humility, tolerance, loyalty, selflessness, generosity, faithfulness, and virtue; and the universal principle of doing the good unto others we want done unto us.
We believe God Himself instituted only One religion in the beginning for all humans to pledge our allegiance to, and it is the Religion of Good based on the Latin root of religion ‘religare,’ which means to return back to the bind, tie, or knot (to return back to bondage). Therefore we believe it's essential for all to pledge our allegiance to God by returning back in bondage to good in our thoughts, words, and actions above all other things and people.
We believe salvation is the prize of eternal peace we receive as spiritual beings after departing this physical world that’s granted to those who do more good than evil while in this earth.
We believe salvation grants spiritual beings reconnection with those they knew and loved while in this earth who also received salvation; and that it grants us the privilege of traveling through time and space blessing and warning those still bound to this physical world for the glory of God.
We believe the physical pursuit of salvation is manifested through our words and actions associated with loving God, loving others as ourselves, doing the good unto others we want done unto us, and embodying the universal good characteristics of love, compassion, mercy, honesty, peace, forgiveness, patience, fairness, gratitude, respect, dependability, humility, tolerance, loyalty, selflessness, generosity, faithfulness, and virtue.
GOD'S EXPECTATIONS OF HUMANITY
We believe God’s expectation of humanity is timeless, universal, and the same today as it was in the beginning; which is to be the best version of ourselves as human beings embodying His essence of universal good in our thoughts, words, and actions that we produce and provide a harvest that benefits Him, others, and ourselves.
We believe God also expects us, after the fall of man to repent when we fail to embody His expectation; which means to acknowledge our shortcomings/disobedience, ask for forgiveness from Him and those we have wronged, accept the consequences of our actions, work on eradicating the behavior, and then getting back up and back to the business of meeting His primary expectation.
OUR RESPONSIBILITY TO GOD'S EXPECTATIONS
We believe it’s the responsibility of all humans to strive daily to become the best version of ourselves as human beings in our various roles as an expression of gratitude and appreciation for God’s blessings bestowed upon us by standing for God through good against evil.
THE CHILDREN OF GOD
We believe every human every created and birthed into this world is a legitimate child of the one God of creation that created everything and everybody; and that even in death all are still the children of God, the only distinction is where we spend eternity.
We believe there’s nothing a human can do in this earth to negate our legitimacy as a child of God.
We believe all days are holy and that we are to engage in complete worship daily; which includes spiritual worship (feelings like thanksgiving and gratitude), intellectual worship (study of God and His expectations), and physical worship (embodying His universal principles and characteristics of good in our thoughts, words, and actions).
6 PILLARS OF TRUTH
1. One invisible Spirit or God, who existed absent names and religions, is the Deity responsible the creation in both the spiritual and physical dimensions of existence. Since the creation of humans in this earth, we have possessed many different beliefs about the Creator, have assigned gender specific pronouns to describe Him, have referred to Him using many different names, have worshiped Him in many different ways, have associated Him with many different religions and ethnicities, and have possessed many different beliefs about Him. We conclude that the Creator is ONE Spirit responsible for the creation of everything, regardless of our thoughts, beliefs, actions, and religions associations.
2. ONE Invisible Spirit is responsible for the creation of everything, including the creation of every human being. Having created us all with a vast diversity of shapes, sizes, colors, talents, abilities, desires, and thoughts, He intended the diversity to not be used as a means of separating, fighting against, and killing each other. Instead it is to celebrate His capacity to create diversity by operating in harmony as is rainbow coalition, understanding that underneath our diversity of human traits and labels that we're all human beings first, all created by the same Creator of all humanity. The only two labels regarding our physical makeup that God sees are the labels of male and female.
3. The Invisible Creator Spirit, having created all humans in His image and likeness, spiritual beings having a physical experience, He established One set of timeless, universal human expectations for all humans to be governed by, in us embodying His essence of good. Those human expectations are consistent with universal and timeless principles and characteristics of good, as recognized throughout the history of time, among all people, in all the various regions of the world, not dependent on any one set of religious doctrine or dogma.
4. The Invisible Creator Spirit having created humans before the advent of human religions, and thus possessing human expectations of us before the advent of our human religions, the Creator established ONE religion He intended all humans to belong to, based on the Latin root of the word religion is ‘religare’, which means to return back to the bind, tie, or knot (to return back to bondage). After the fall of man, God established the Religion of Good, fully expecting every human to be committed to and/or return back to being bound, tied, or knotted to the universal principles and characteristics of good.
5. We all began life as spiritual beings, eventually being birthed into this physical world as human beings; and will all die to our physical form of living. After dying to our fleshly existence, we will all return to our original states as spiritual beings. In these states, we will either spend eternity in peace, with the freedom to travel time and space for God’s glory, blessing and warning those still bound to this physical world, or in torment (hell). The Creator decided in the beginning to know or base our eternity on our fruits while in the earth, fairly allowing us to determine our own eternity based on our good and evil in the earth. Humans that do more good than evil in this world will garner eternal life (salvation), requiring us be accountable and mindful of our thoughts, words, and actions.
6. The Creator created things and people throughout all existence with a variety of diversity. Using the rainbow as an example, the Creator created humans brothers and sisters of the human race, as diverse as the various colors in the rainbow. Creating humans with diversity wasn't meant as a curse that would be used to justify the mistreatment of others based on an "Us versus Them" perspective. The rainbow is to serve as a guide in informing us that we are all meant to exist, all important to God's plan for humanity, all meant to co-exist with each other, and all equally important (as are all the colors in the rainbow). Because God only uses the two labels of good and evil in judging our thoughts, words, and actions; it's those two labels that are meant to be at war. God only intends for us to be at war against and in pursuit of overcoming evil: the that resides within each of us personally; and collectively, to be active in the war of good overcoming evil in all the earth.
