THAT WE ALL MIGHT COME INTO THE UNITY OF FAITH
We respect and appreciate all churches of the Christian faith and all other charitable organizations.
We believe that all nationalities and genders can receive a born from above experience and function in the Kingdom of GOD (Yahweh). We believe in an individual relationship with the Holy Spirit who is no respecter of persons or gender.
According to First Samuel 16:7, Yahweh looks upon the heart and not the outward appearance (even though it will be a reflection of where we are in spiritual maturity). We are all the children of Yahweh by faith in Christ; by faith in his anointed Word, his principles, his authority, and love. When we are baptized into Christ and have put on Christ, we give recognition that we are children of Yahweh in his Kingdom and under his authority.
We are all children of GOD (Yahweh). By faith in Christ the Anointing, we believe that once we have been baptized into Christ (that Anointing) we have given the recognition that we are children of Yahweh in his Kingdom and under his authority. We begin to walk, to learn, and to recognize our purpose in His Kingdom.
We honor marriage between a man and a woman; holding it sacred and not to be dishonored or disrespected by either party in adultery. We do not exclude anyone that has had a divorce or has remarried. Nor do we disregard the rights of those who live outside the box of traditional commitments. The ministry is for whosoever will.
We honor our country, the USA, and that which our flag stands for. We respect and honor those who have fought and are fighting for our freedom. We pray for our president and those in our government that they will be directed by the Holy Spirit. We believe in the system and principles that our county was founded upon.
We stand firmly against pornography, alcohol, and drug abuse, and stand firmly with and for those who have become victims that are longing to be set free.
Our name was divinely chosen from Hebrews 12:23-24, saying, “But you are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, to the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to God [Yahweh] the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, and to Jesus [Yasha/SAVIOR] the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel.” We took out the words “and church” since it is the same as “assembly.”

General Assembly of the Firstborn’s Mission Statement
Having been directed by the Holy Spirit to receive Yasha (Jesus in Hebrew) as our personal Savior and the redeemer of all mankind, we, the members of General Assembly of the Firstborn, purpose to embrace his teaching and yield ourselves to the control of his Spirit. Upon the confession of our faith in his principles and his revealed word, we were baptized in water and in his Spirit, after which we glorified Yahweh in a heavenly language as the Spirit gave utterance.
We endeavor therefore, through the power and leadership of the Holy Spirit, to walk together in the unity of the faith and love in the true spirit of holiness. We commit ourselves to the cause of Christ and dedicate our lives to the advancement of the Kingdom of Yahweh, focusing our hope on its principles and dedicating our resources to further its full establishment on the earth.
We practice and encourage the practice of both private and public prayer. We worship Yahweh the Father and Yasha his son and submit ourselves to be bound by the law of love and the spirit of goodwill toward all mankind.
We honor and uphold the civil laws that govern and protect our country, state, church, and homes as long as said laws are compatible with the teachings of Yasha the Messiah, which is the law of love.
We do not practice nor do we condone the practice of adultery, fornication, homosexuality, or any form of immoral conduct, which is judged wrong by Biblical standards.
We honor marriage and strive for family unity, seeking to correct, support, and educate our children. We strive to bring them up in the nurture and admonition of our Lord, seeking their salvation and the salvation of others, both at home and abroad.
We anoint with oil and offer prayer for healing of the sick and afflicted, yielding ourselves to be used in the operation of spiritual gifts and ministries in the supernatural realm.
We recognize Yasha as head of his Body (the Church) and depend upon body ministry for correction, direction, and edification while we are in the process of development and growth that will bring us into maturity in Christ, which is full sonship.
We strive to refrain from gossiping, meddling in the affairs of others, tattling, tale-bearing, back-biting, and participating in the traffic of slanderous and hurtful rumors while discouraging and rebuking others that would endeavor to cause division or to involve us in such mischievous and destructive practices. We forgive the weaknesses in others and strive to reach perfection and to walk in the more excellent way.
We accept Christ alone as head of the assembly, which is his body, and stress the equality of all believers, regardless of race, gender, or social standing. We encourage spiritual participation of all members of the body, subjecting ourselves to the disciplining work of the administration of spiritual ministry gifts, which are of apostles, prophets, evangelists, teachers, and shepherds (pastors).
Our name was divinely chosen from Hebrews 12:23, “But you are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, to the ‘general assembly and church of the firstborn,’ which are written in heaven, and to Yahweh the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, and to Yasha the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel,” Hebrews 12:22-24.
