Welcome to the Kingdom of Heaven

Who Are We?

We are Christ's ambassadors and Citizens of Heaven, called out of the world to preach Heaven's message (2 Corinthians 5:20, Philippians 3:20 and 2 Corinthians 6:17).

We are a holy nation, a peculiar people, living in obedience to the simple teachings of Jesus Christ as recorded in the Holy Bible (1 Peter 2:9).

Why We Are Not Citizens of the World

The Kingdom of Heaven is God's nation established by Jesus Christ. Luke 22:29.

Our citizenship is in the Kingdom of Heaven. Philippians 3:20.

No man can obey two nations. Matthew 6:24.

We expect to be held accountable to the Laws from which we come. Romans 14:12-13.

The law cannot demand the impossible; it cannot require that we obey two nations. Romans 14:4

The Supreme Law of the Kingdom of Heaven is the Golden Rule. Matthew 22:37-40.

The Kingdom of Heaven is available to all who love and trust Jesus Christ. John 14:23.

Characteristics of Citizens of Heaven

Our word is true. Our yes's are "yes," and our no's are "no" (Matthew 5:37).

Debt Free. We owe no man anything but the continuing debt to love one another (Romans 13:8)

Married until parted by death. There is no divorce and remarriage (Luke 16:18).

Parents instruct their children. They are directly responsible for training them up in the Lord (Ephesians 6:4).

Known as a giver, not a taker. We give and it is given back to us in good measure (Luke 6:38).

Love our enemies. We do good to those who hate us. We bless them and pray for them (Matthew 5:44).

No lawsuits. We do not seek courts of law as a remedy for wrongs done (1 Corinthians 6:1-8).

Busy storing treasures in Heaven. Our heart is on the heavenly things, not on earthly treasures (Matthew 6:20).

Slow to anger. We are mild mannered, forgiving one another and willing to be defrauded (Ephesians 4:31-32).

Treat others the way we want to be treated. We put ourselves in the other one's shoes and respond accordingly (Matthew 7:12).

Seek first the Kingdom of Heaven. We are not here to seek money, property, popularity, honors, or advantage. We diligently seek and promote the Kingdom of Heaven, trusting God to supply our every need (Matthew 6:33).

Separate from secular government. We do not participate in worldly politics, elections, or debates about their governments (2 Timothy 2:4).

Our citizenship is in Heaven. We acknowledge that the Kingdom of Heaven is God's Government and is the only one that is everlasting (Philippians 3:20, Luke 1:33).

Observe chain of command. In the Church and in the family, we respect chain of command (1 Peter 5, 1 Corinthians 11, Ephesians 6, Hebrews 13:17). We follow our Shepherd and flee from strangers (John 10:5, 27).
