Christian Academy

For the months of May and June we take time to acknowledge the Feast of Pentecost, also known as Feast of Harvest, Feast of Weeks and the Feast of the First Fruits.  As outlined in the scriptures, Pentecost is celebrated 50 days after Passover in the third Hebrew month, Sivan.   

This great feast points to: 1) the time when Christ will pour the Holy Spirit upon His saints to prepare them for His coming during the last days; and 2) the gathering together of the 144,000, a group of saints that are deemed the “first fruit” of God’s harvest or His people.   This year Pentecost is on Sunday, June 5th.   

You can learn about the events that led to this wonderful feast in the presentations below.  Enjoy and God bless!

Our Church Brochure

"The bible is God’s word.  Without his word we have no truth.  It is from his word that we come to know God, who he is and how to obey him."

"We believe in the word of God and in his promise.  We must be prepared for his coming, by obeying him and keeping his commandments."

"Your appearance matters. As sons and daughters of the kingdom of heaven, our appearance is most important as a sign of sanctification. It represents the wedding garment required by God to be saved."

"God sanctified other days besides the Sabbath day for us to come together and worship him. These special days help us to understand and remember God’s plan for our salvation and deliverance."

"We are the true Israelite, the children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.  God promised Abraham that he would leave a remnant, or portion of his children."

"Most of the “holidays” that the people in the world keep, are not holy, but pagan. When God gave the law to the children of Israel he also gave them certain feast days or holy days to keep every year.  These holy days are part of the commandments of the Lord. The heathen kept other days in their worship of their idol gods."

"In the beginning when God created the heaven and the earth, He gave to man a day of rest.  He sanctified the seventh day and made it holy.  This means that it is set apart or separated from the other days of the week, for the worship and praise of God."

"What is a sacrament? It is a sign of sanctification and perfection that represents sacrifices of righteousness. Sacraments are ordained by God, and are ritualistically practiced."

"Tithes and offerings are perpetual divine ordinances of God.  It is an unchangeable law decreed in the Ten Commandments and the Testimonies of Jesus Christ.  When the Lord enriches you with your basic necessities, the things you need to occupy or exist in this earth, you are to return a portion back to him."

"Unlike man, God does not change. He said, For I am the Lord, I change not]. (Mal 3:6). Yet grievous wolves came into the Christian churches set up by the disciples.  They changed the laws of God to worship idols."

"A basic definition of a testimony is to declare or acknowledge under oath.  When we stand on the altar of God and testify we are showing a personal experience with God.  It is a declaration of what God has done for us that will encourage others to continue in the faith."
