Strait Gate Kingdom Outreach Upholds these Core Beliefs:
GOD THE FATHER (Yahweh)
There is One God, Father Yah, The Great I AM, Most High God, Jehovah God, Who is Creator, Sustainer and Sovereign Ruler of the universe. He is One God in three entities (persons) Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Elohim. Father Yah is omnipotent (all powerful) yet merciful. He is omniscient (all knowing) but full of grace and He is omnipresent (all present) while being a personal father to each of us individually. The Lord God is infinite; always has been, always is and always will be; a living eternal God, the Source of Life, Light and Love, His Word is Truth. The Heavenly Father is Spirit and Supreme Being to Whom we owe all reverence, praise and worship.
GOD THE SON (Yeshua Hamashiach)
Yeshua Hamashiach, Jesus The Christ is the Son of God sent by the Father to be propitiation for our sins. He was divinely conceived, born of a virgin; eternal Son of God and the only perfect son of man. He is wholly God and wholly man, the God Man, Emmauel, God with us. King Yeshua is Messiah, our Savior and Redeemer Who delivered us from the wages of sin as a Sacrificial Lamb. The Lord was crucified by man but resurrected by Father Yah. He is the King and Lord of this world sitting at the right hand of the Most High. Only through faith in Yeshua Hamashiach’s saving sacrifice and resurrection can mankind be reconciled to our Creator. The Lord is alive and has all authority in heaven and on earth. In due time, He will return to this world gathering His people to rule and reign in all His Kingdom. The Son of Yah is King and Lord of our lives and one day every knee will bow and every tongue confess “Yeshua Hamashiach Adonai, Jesus Christ is Lord!”
GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT (Ruach HaKodesh)
The third person of the Godhead, the Holy Spirit, was sent by the Son and Savior, after His ascension, for our much needed strengthening and guidance to live this life with a renewed mentality of eternal spirit mindedness. With the Savior no longer in the world, we needed a holy conduit to connect us to The Father. The Holy Spirit is alive, actively operating inside all Kingdom people subduing the sin nature within us. It is through the Spirit that we are supernaturally anointed and given specific gifts. We are never without the presence of the Most High and Holy One because His Spirit is continually with us revealing the necessary things of God and molding our thoughts and deeds.
HOLY BIBLE (Tanakh)
The Holy Bible is the inspired Word from the Father On High written by men through supernatural unctions of the Holy Spirit. The Bible, in its entirety, has been given to mankind as the tangible reference source to learn about our Creator and the creation account, the history of humankind, the Gospel of Christ Jesus and how this Kingdom drama will all play out to the end. Everything people really need to know for this life and eternity is in that book. It is an infallible instructor, the voice of the Great I AM. Scripture is inerrant accounts and revealed Truths despite man’s selective interpretations which may sometimes be flawed. Yet, the Truth of Scripture always rises to the top. The Bible is a most precious treasure to a born-again-believer. All of Christ’s disciples should regularly read and study Scripture so our Holy Lord God can reveal the collective instructions to His Body, the church, and His personal Word for our individual spiritual journeys.
GOSPEL OF CHRIST JESUS
SGKO believes profession of Christianity and a Kingdom perspective rests on the Gospel. The Gospel is the narrative of our Savior Who redeemed and delivers us, Yeshua Hamashiach, Jesus The Christ. The tapestry of that narrative is His birth, ministry, death, resurrection and ascension back to Heaven sitting at the right Hand of Father God. The heart of the Gospel is the Cross of Christ Jesus, the saving sacrifice He made and His resurrection. The narrative rests, but is far from over with His ascension back to Heaven and His prophesied and much anticipated return to this earth and claim His Kingdom.
The wages of sin are death but we can escape th consequence through faith in the Savior sent by our Creator, Father Yah. His Son came and suffered for our good. Faith in His redemptive sacrifice as Son and Deliverer is the only way to have your name placed in the Lamb’s Book of Life and be reconcile to Holy Father God. Regardless to current cultural opinion, salvation comes through One Savior, the Lord Jesus, Who said He is the Way, He is the Door, He is the Life…everlasting life.
The ability to pray to the Great I AM was a gift given only to His human creation. It is the most important communication we are able to initiate. Ernest fervent prayer puts us into His Spirit realm. We are biblically taught prayer is to be made in the name of our Savior and Lord, Yeshua Hamashiach, Jesus The Christ. Prayer is the panacea for all the matters of our lives and this world’s maladies. We believe in the power of prayer, prayer warriors, prayer enhanced by fasting, prayer language and praying through. We believe the Holy Spirit intervenes in our praying if needed. Prayer should be part of an ongoing dialogue, therefore, we listen for His response. Kingdom saints should regard prayer as a privilege; to be able to humbly yet boldly come before the Lord God’s Throne of Grace with thankful praise, worship and our concerns, pouring out our hearts in whatever human emotions we are experiencing. It is a blessing to know He listens to our prayers whether saint or sinner, corporately or individually, He hears us.
