To joy in the Fellowship of Christians persuaded by God of the sanctity of the Seventh Day Sabbath for to be the Lord Jesus’ Day of Worship-Rest.

The urgency of Sabbaths’ celebration for the Christian Faith and Church, springs from the knowledge of the energy of God’s operation in the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. Ephesians 1:17-23.

The Sabbath, its engagement and enjoyment, are grounded in Divine Election and Predestination and realised in the “Gospel of God concerning His Son Jesus Christ our Lord”, whom God the Father “Declared the Son of God with Power according to the Spirit of Holiness by resurrection from the dead:— by Whom we have received Grace for the obedience of the Faith for His Name among all nations, among whom are ye also the called of Jesus Christ, to the end ye may be established and comforted by the mutual faith in the Gospel of His Son.” Romans 1:1...12.

Therefore we remember, enjoy and celebrate “The Lord’s Day” Sabbath, in the name of Christ, because of Christ, and for the sake of Christ, being the Body of Christ’s Own.
We occasionally remember, enjoy, celebrate and so receive Sabbaths’ Eating and Drinking of the Lord’s Supper.
