Learning to Live Like the Savior.
Philia Ministries is a non-profit organization based out of Northern New Jersey. Our mission is dedicated to seeing hearts of believers in this generation come to repentance, to gain a deep LOVE for The Entire Word of God, and to be looking up always for The Soon Returning Messiah and King. We aim to cultivate a family atmosphere with our patrons and subscribers as we walk together on this journey and sharpen one another with the Word. We live to love The Most High Creator with all our hearts, serve and love others, and preach the fullness of the gospel to all Creation.
23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25 whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God's righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. 26 It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus. 27 Then what becomes of our boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of law? By a law of works? No, but by the law of faith. 28 For we hold that one is justified by faith apart from works of the law. 29 Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles also? Yes, of Gentiles also, 30 since God is one—who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through faith. 31 Do we then overthrow the law by this faith? By no means! On the contrary, we uphold the law.
We unapologetically affirm the deity of Yeshua (Jesus). He is the Messiah, Son of the Living God and He IS the I AM, YHWH veiled in flesh.
This is the Truth. For the Most High Yah, Elohim, Abba God so loved the world, He sent His only begotten Son, that whomever believes on Him shall not perish, but have life everlasting(John 3:16). He who acknowledges his sin, confesses with his mouth that Yeshua (Jesus of Nazareth) is Lord and believes it in his heart that God raised Him from the dead shall be saved (Romans 10:9-10). It is by grace we are saved through faith in Jesus the Messiah alone, not of works lest anyone should boast(Ephesians 2:8-9).
We believe in One God YHWH(Deut 6:4), One Messiah (Yeshua/Jesus) as deity(Col 2:9), One Way, One Holy Spirit, One Baptism, One Resurrection, One Judgement, One Hope(Ephesians 4:1-6). We affirm that the Godhead consists of Father, Son, Holy Spirit; wherein lies the mystery of one God YHWH with 3 distinctions. We believe the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God given to us by the Father, being sealed(Ephesians 1:13) when we received the message of truth, being born again (John 3:1-8) resulting in becoming a new creation through Christ(2 Cor 5:17). We affirm that all scripture is inspired by God and useful for teaching, reproof, correction, and training in righteousness(2 Timothy 3:16). We believe that all scripture, Genesis through Revelation is equally inspired by God. We consider ourselves followers of the THE WAY, Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Christ) and His perfect example for how to live our lives. We also believe that through faith in Him, that we are now grafted into the common wealth of Israel, the seed of Abraham, and we to aim to live set apart accordingly. (Romans 11:11-31) We worship the Most High God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob(Israel) and of the Gentile Nations whom He has called as His own. He (YHWH) cloaked Himself in flesh in the person of Yeshua (Jesus) (1 Tim 3:16), His only begotten Son to die for our sins on the tree in order to bring back a scattered people into reconciliation with Himself. Apart from Christ, we were dead in our trespasses, enemies of God, but through Him, we have been given the right to be called His children. In Him, we are adopted into the inheritance of grace and eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23). We believe that you and I can have fellowship with Him forever if we understand that we have broken and transgressed His laws (we have missed the mark of holiness) and are in need of a savior to pay that debt, (Romans 3:23) (1 John 3:4) we understand that our own works can never make us right with a Holy God and so we repent with a sincere heart, (Matthew 4:17) (1John 1:9) believe that Yeshua/ Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in our hearts God raised Him from the dead then we shall be saved from an eternity without Him. (Romans 10:9) (2 Thessalonians 1:9) We desire to love what He loves because we love Him and detest what He detests because we love Him. (Psalm 119:163) We aim to keep His commandments and statutes because we love Him and know that all His doctrine is good doctrine, protects us, and makes us set apart for His purposes. (John 14:15-31) (Proverbs 4:2) When we stumble, grace catches us. Spirit led works and the Fruits of the The Holy Spirit are a sign of a true conversion. (James 2:14-17) (Galatians 5:22-23)
We Cry Glory to the One true God of Israel. (Isaiah 44:6)
Jesus is the ONLY way, truth, and the life, and no one comes to the Father but by Him. (John 14:6) We pursue to follow the instructions of our Creator out of our love for Him and out of a desire to obey His Word. We desire to walk by the spirit of the law as slaves to righteousness not by the letter of the law as slaves to sin. Our ultimate goal is to walk just as our Messiah walked. (1 John 5:3) (Romans 6:15-20) (1 John 2:6)
Shalom and Blessings.

THE POWER OF PRAYER
We believe prayer is not a secondary action. It's the main strategy in the battle against the darkness. Prayer is a powerful weapon, shield, and place of restoration. It's intimacy with our Creator. Our ministry will be interceding daily on behalf of our brothers and sisters, region, state, nation, and world. Head over to our prayer wall to see how you can be a part of this movement.
