About This Ministry
Who we are-
Have you ever questioned why main-stream, traditional "Christian" religions have so many rules & dogmas with the tendency to control God's (EL's) people? Ever wonder why traditional Christianity has a past that is just as violent and bloody as any other religion, especially between so called Christian churches? Ever notice that they are always asking for your money? Ever wonder what happened to the ORIGINAL Church founded by Jesus (Yahshua) and His early apostles?
I did, and it brought me to know Yahshua (Jesus) as He is and not how He has been portrayed by man's Corporately Organized Religions. It led me on a walk with Him beginning in 1982 and has brought me to this ministry that was started in 2009.
This ministry is not a "Church", it is our vehicle to share the Good News that Yahshua the Messiah (Jesus the Christ) came to earth to die for our sins, and will return to establish the Kingdom of Elohim (God) and institute peace throughout the earth!
Our goal is to help others who are interested in coming out of the corporate style main-stream Christianity that the world is familiar with and return to the Way of our Creator, the Elohim (God) of Abraham, Issac & Jacob, as taught by His only begotten Son, Yahshua the Messiah (Jesus the Christ) and to be prepared for His soon return.
Whether you were "called" long ago, or if He is just now "knocking at the door", get ready to begin the next part of your journey to the Kingdom of Elohim the Almighty.
What we are not
We are not part of "Traditional Christianity", for that you can stumble into any church down the street, slide into the pew and sit and listen to one man preach at you for an hour or two, if you can stay awake in a state of inactivity, passively sitting and listening (I know it's hard for me) until you reach for your wallet when they pass the plate. This setup can be fine for new believers, and has it's place depending on the venue, but as maturity progresses it's time for something more.
Many "traditional" churches have become like "God Deposit Boxes". Many go to "church", an ornate building "where God is" to figuratively take God out of his box for an hour or so, gently place him back in when they are done and lock him away till they decide they want to come back to "church" and take him out again (when it suits them of course, probably next Sunday, unless, of course, there is something better to do).
In contrast, we believe that the Church is a spiritual organism, there are no buildings, organizations, or corporations that can contain it. You don’t join anything, there is no official membership (Yahshua knows His sheep) you just chose to fellowship with part of the Body of Messiah (believes of like mind no mater what organization they may be tied to). We encourage worship at non-corporate, independent (or as my friend Dave says "inter-dependent"), and home based congregations. Most of us have no "church buildings", we meet in homes, halls, parks, or other places to worship. We strive to practice something better described as the "Original Christianity" of the early Church. As such, we worship on the Seventh Day Sabbath (Saturday) as Elohim intended, the only day that He made Holy.
No one here will ask you for money, we do not actively solicit funds or tithes from anyone. This is not a paid ministry, there are no paid employees, there are no buildings or headquarters to maintain, and there is no charge for any of the information we make available. If a person is moved to give any tithe or funding to us they will do it on their own as the spirit moves them. We Do Not Merchandise EL's (God's) People.
23 Buy the truth, and sell it not; also wisdom, and instruction, and understanding.
7 And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
9 Provide neither gold, nor silver, nor brass in your purses,
1 Cor 2:12
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
We believe in practicing something described as "Original Christianity" or more correctly the "The Way of YAH".
The Sabbath is not a one hour event, it is a 24 hr period, from sunset on the sixth day (Friday) to the sunset of the seventh day (Saturday), 24 hrs of Holy time, set apart by YAH (The LORD) Himself. The other six days of the week we go about our work, but strive to take Him along with us all week till we assemble the next Sabbath.
To belong to The Church (body of believers), to be one of YAH's people, you don't have to join anything, there is no official membership list made or maintained by mankind (Yahshua knows His sheep) you just chose to fellowship with the Body of Messiah (fellow believers). All it takes is repenting of your sins, accepting Yahshua as your savior, and being baptized in His name. Now your ready to follow Him, obey His Word, and help spread the truth of The Kingdom of Elohim (God) as a soldier of the Anointed One, our Messiah Yahshua (Jesus the Christ)!
We realize we are but frail human beings and rely on the Spirit of Elohim (God) to guide us and show us new understanding, and that we need the willingness to revise our belief system as we learn and grow in the faith. As a result of this reality we have a fairly open creed, no one is forced to believe exactly the same as another, we are willing to look into, debate, and discuss all points of view that are based on these few core beliefs which we believe are from Elohim and are set and unmovable:
Core foundational beliefs
One EL, the Elohim (God) of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob.
Elohim gave his only Son, Yahshua (Jesus) as the Messiah (Christ or Anointed One) as our Savior to take away the sins of the world.
Salvation is a gift from Elohim (God) and can not be earned.
Whoever believes on Yahshua the Messiah (Jesus the Christ) and is baptized (immersed) in His name will have their sins forgiven and inherit eternal life in the Kingdom of Elohim.
His Commandments are for all mankind. We obey them not to be saved, but because we are saved and we want to honor Him and please Him!
The Bible is the written Word of Elohim (God) and is our guide in all spiritual matters. The Traditional Christianity familiar to most of the world has been corrupted and influenced by paganism long ago, we need to realize it, and when we do, come out of it as much as possible.
The following are doctrines we strongly believe are correct and should be part of our walk with EL (God), we do not force these following beliefs on anyone, or dictate how they are to be observed, but we do strongly teach and encourage all to experience the joy and hope that they represent:
YAH's (The LORD'S) Biblical Holy Days- Rejoicing in His Biblical Holy Days for they are intended for all mankind and show His plan for humanity and are strong prophesies of His coming Kingdom.
Days fulfilled by Yahshua (Jesus) in His first coming - Passover/Unleavened Bread, Pentecost. ....MORE TO COME!
Days yet to be fulfilled by Yahshua (Jesus) at His second coming – Trumpets, Atonement, Tabernacles.....MORE TO COME!
These days are given to man as a gift from Elohim (God), created by Him to be received and celebrated Joyfully! They outline His plan for the salvation of man, give glory to Him, celebrate what He has done for us through His Son Yahshua (Jesus) and point to Yahshua's return. What man would be given a pearl of great value and cast it aside saying "This is of no value to me"? This is the same when we reject the meaningful Holy Days Elohim (God) has given us in place of the pagan influence holidays created by man.

Why The Name “Centurion” For Our Ministry?
Isn't "Centurion" a strange name for a Church Ministry? No, not really, there are 3 Centurions of significance that come in contact with the early Church: 1st Before the crucifixion-
Matt 8:5-13 5 And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him,… 10 When Jesus heard it, he marveled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. 11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven….
2nd At the crucifixion-
Mark 15:37-39 37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave up the ghost. 38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom. 39 And when the centurion, which stood over against him, saw that he so cried out, and gave up the ghost, he said, Truly this man was the Son of God.
3rd After the crucifixion-
Acts 10:1-48 1 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band, 2 A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always…. 15 And the voice spake unto him (Peter) again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common… 21 Then Peter went down to the men which were sent unto him from Cornelius; and said, Behold, I am he whom ye seek: what is the cause wherefore ye are come? 22 And they said, Cornelius the centurion, a just man, and one that feareth God, and of good report among all the nation of the Jews, was warned from God by an holy angel to send for thee into his house, and to hear words of thee… 28 And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is a Jew to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean… 34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35 But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him…. 44 While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word. 45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost… 48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.
The name Centurion celebrates that gift of the Holy Spirit our Elohim gave to us when He opened up the possibility for all gentiles to be grafted into the Body of Messiah. He chose to do this by selecting the first non-Israelite convert after Yahshua’s death & resurrection, Cornelius the Centurion. Elohim chose this man, a citizen of Rome, yes Rome! the Empire representative of all things that were gentile and pagan at the time! Not only was he a Roman citizen, but a Roman warrior, an actual agent of that Roman pagan system of government, a soldier who was committed to the service of the Caesars’! The system of government that has spread around the world to this day. He was an instrument of the occupying force that was used by the Jewish religious establishments to bring about Yahshua’s death, but he was now in the service of Elohim!
