The Fullness of the Gospel is literally entering into the presence of Jesus Christ while in the flesh; personal redemption from the Fall is attained in no other way.
True prophets always have, and still do, receive the testimony of Jesus Christ from His own mouth and under His own hand, indicating that they are redeemed from the Fall. After this sacred encounter, true prophets plainly and boldly declare that this same Gospel and blessing is available to all who will repent and receive the living, resurrected Savior.
Priesthood comes through a connection with Heaven and can only be used to serve others. Priesthood is not to be used to control, compel, or rule over others or to control finances. Priesthood in our fellowships is restricted to a man's ability to administer two types of ordinances (sacrament and baptism) in his family or, given the sustaining of 7 women, publicly. If a group of 12 female believers together determine that a priesthood holder is unworthy, he is no longer allowed to administer outside of his immediate family.
Tithing is a freewill offering that is calculated as "10% of one's surplus." Tithing is only used to care for the poor directly, such as for housing, food, clothing, healthcare, education, and transportation. Tithing is administered by the common consent of a fellowship where the woman’s voice is equal with the man’s. Because women tend to exemplify compassion and ‘love unfeigned’, they have an innate competency worth trusting in such matters.
As sacrifice is required to demonstrate true faith, all service within our fellowships is voluntary. We have no paid ministry and no hierarchy or leadership. Equality is a hallmark of true Christianity. Having a paid priestly class is the definition of priestcraft and can lead to idolatry.
Meetings / Fellowships
Just as with the early Christians, we meet in small groups or fellowships in private homes or borrowed buildings. Money is not gathered nor spent to build any edifice except a single temple. When a larger conference is desired, any fellowship can organize and call one. A facility in which to meet is either borrowed or rented by funds donated by the fellowships for that purpose.
Funds for the yet future temple of the New Jerusalem are being gathered and managed by a group of volunteer women.
When a new dispensation is begun, authoritative baptism (or rebaptism) is required. Baptisms are typically performed in living waters using the prayer found in the Book of Mormon, which states, "Having authority given me of Jesus Christ..." rather than "having been commissioned of Jesus Christ...".
Consists of bread and wine with the prayers performed while participants kneel.
As modeled by Eve and Adam, marriage is an institution ordained by God Himself and is between one man and one wife. Polygamy was and is an abomination.
Literally entering into the presence of Jesus Christ while in the flesh is the fullness of the Gospel; personal redemption from the Fall is attained in no other way.
In spite of a relatively recent attempt at restoration of the gospel, all churches have become corrupted.
Priesthood can only command spirit and element. If priesthood is used to command and control others, it is no longer priesthood.
Because men have abused and neglected the priesthood, only women can sustain a man to publicly exercise priesthood.
Tithing is only to be used for caring for the poor. In general, the rule in our communities is women collect and disperse funds.
Sacrament consists of bread and wine, and the prayer is done while kneeling.
