Cephas Ministries, Rita Williams

We offer free online newsletters, the Spoken Word, indexed files and a network of websites. We address the apostasy taking place daily. The focus is on people who develop questions about their beliefs and would like to have answers. We compare their doctrines to the Bible. We also keep track of the international political trend which is moving rapidly into the New World Order. We are making an effort to prepare the church for what is sure to come according to the Bible.
Many, not all, people join organizations for religious purposes. They love God and want to serve Him. For lack of knowledge of the Gospel, they find themselves wondering, why they can't really get comfortable. For some strange reason, they experience a grieving heart or spiritual warfare which is unexplainable. If a person has accepted Christ Jesus and repented prior to entering a church not in line with the Word of God (Authorized King James Version Bible), the still small voice becomes harder and harder to distinguish due to the lies. God has mercy and forgives totally, if we repent and ask Him to forgive us. He sees us through His Son.
A church which is out of compliance with the Gospel, would cause a grieving Holy Spirit within and a certain amount of spiritual warfare in an individual's environment. The Holy Spirit, a personage, would be making an effort to communicate the problem. He would be striving to lead the person into the truth. This is only one of many ways for that to happen. Our mission is to bring awareness to people that there is cause for alarm and that they need to take a look at what they really believe and compare it with the Word of God. Jesus spent some of his ministry teaching about false prophets which are going to try to lead the sheep astray.
Our MISSION is a ministry to lost sheep. Most of them don't know they are lost. Jesus warned us that we perish for lack of knowledge.

Jesus also said: "Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you, That in heaven their angels do always behold the face of my Father which is in heaven. For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. How think ye? if a man have a hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains and seeketh that which is gone astray? And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray. Even so it is not the will of your Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish." (Matthew 18:10-14)

We publish a newsletter online "International Social Pulse" monthly . It includes information to Christians about aberrant teachings to insulate from meeting and joining groups who worship a different Jesus and who do not teach the fundamental doctrine of the Bible.

 Our Statement of Faith:

"We believe in one Father God (1Cor 8:6; 1Tim 2:5), Almighty (Rev 1:8 etc.), maker of Heaven and Earth (Acts 17:24), everything seen and unseen (Col 1:16 {but said of Jesus!}). And we believe in one Lord (Heb 1:8), Jesus Christ (Mk 8:29-30; 1Cor 8:6; 12:3; Phil 2:11; 1Tim 2:6; Rom 10:9), the Son of God (Heb 1:2; Mk 14:61-62), the only begotten one (John 1:14; Acts 8:37), Who was begotten by the Father (John 1:14) prior to all the ages (John 1:1). Light from Light (John 1:4-5 with 1 John 1:5), true God from true God (John 20:28; Heb 1:8; 1John 5:20), Who was begotten, not made (Heb 1:5 vs. Heb 1:7), Who is of the same being as the Father (John 5:18, Heb 1:3), through Whom all things came into being (John 1:3; Phil 2:6; Heb 1:2); Who, for us humans (1Tim 2:5-6) and for our salvation (Rom 6:6-14; Gal 1:4; 4:5), came down out of Heaven (1Cor 8:47-48), became incarnate (John 1:14; 1John 4:2) by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary (Matt 1:18,20; Gal 4:4; Phil 2:5-11), and thus became human (Matt 1:23; Heb 2:17; 4:15), Who was crucified on our behalf (Rom 5:8; 8:32) under Pontius Pilate (Lk 23:26-49), suffered (Heb 2:10; 1Pet 5:1) and was buried (1Cor 15:4), arose on the third day according to the Scriptures (Mk 8:31; 9:31; 10:33; Lk 24; 1Cor 15:4), and ascended into Heaven (Lk 24:51; Acts 1:6-11), Who now sits at the right hand of the Father (Mk 16:9; Heb 1:3), and again is coming with glory to judge the living and the dead (Mk 8:38; 13:26 {Dan 7:13}; Matt 25:31-46; Acts 10:42); of Whose kingdom there is no end (Lk 1:33).

And we believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord (2Cor 3:17-18), and He who makes alive (John 6:63; Rom 8:2; 2Cor 3:6), Who proceeds from the Father (John 15:26) and the Son (John 16:7) , and Who spoke through the prophets. (2Pet 1:21).We believe not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; (Titus 3:5) (Matthew 19:28); We, at Cephas Ministry, believe we are lively stones, which are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 2:5) (Hebrews 3:6)

And we believe in One, Holy Church (Eph 5:27), we confess one Baptism (Eph 4:5; Col 2:12) of repentance for the remission of sins (Mk 1:4; Lk 3:3; Acts 2:38); we look forward (2Pet 3:12-13) to the Resurrection of the Dead (Matt 22:31; 25:31-46) and Rapture of the living called the Day of Christ, which will happen simultaneously with the day of our Lord Jesus Christ (1Cor 1:8;5:5; Phil 1:6, 10; 2:16; 2Thess 2:2). Thus the Rapture of believers marks the beginning of judgment and the Tribulation (Rev 6-20). The Day of the Lord is the extended period beginning with the Tribulation to the end of the millennial age preceding the creation of a new heaven and new earth. Amen
