is a singular ministry outreach that offers an online presence for our local fellowship lead by Brother JS Lowther in SE Ohio, USA. Locally we would like to be known as ‘Ohio Valley Called of Christ’.
We are puritanical, so nothing too fancy.
But if you are looking for those who are striving to live biblical lives in the real world then perhaps you’d like to come visit and worship with us?
If so please feel free to ask by email as our gatherings are by invitation only.
So before you do that perhaps you’d like to know who we are a bit?
Here is a little about our Theology & doctrine.
We would be recognized by some of these generic terms as we understand their meaning to be Scripturally founded:
‘trinitarian’ in our Theology
(We accept that YHWH (the Godhead) has three distinguished functionary persons:
Covenant theological in our Cosmology
(We accept GOD and His Word as Eternal and therefore abidingly covenantal in all ages.)
(We accept the Faith in the LORD Jesu Christ as a gift of God’s Grace predestined to elect saints who are chosen in Christ since before the world was; in support of this truth, we embrace and accept all 5 Sola’s of the protestant reformation:
Scripture alone, Grace alone, Faith alone, Christ alone,
Only YHWH GOD’s Glory.
Doctrine of Sanctification
(good works and holiness)
(We believe all apostolic worship and good works come from the Eternal GOD’s Holy Law, and that Christians are instructed, corrected and perfectly furnished by living a life of Grace in the Gospel according to the Law of YHWH- these are Spiritual blessings enjoyed on earth by Saints.)
(We believe the perfect ethical approach to life, society and government comes from God’s Holy Law. And that good and evil are unable to be fully known without the Law of God as our standard of justice in ethics, and that this so for all logical and rational judgment.)
(We believe in racial distinction, and that these distinctions are GOD ordained and to be preserved in holy lawful matrimony intended to propagate ‘Kind after Kind’ fruitfulness and multiplicity.)
(We believe churches are comprised of houses / families, with husbands who are fathers as the lawful and natural head of the house, he is the natural God given pastor of his flock, the over-seer of his genetic inheritance
Regardless of numbers, fathers are commanded to organize worship every week for his family’s Holy Convocation (jointly hearing and speaking the Word of God), and to join with other families and individuals in worship and fellowship- this unity of families and individuals is the foundational institution of the body and Church of Christ.
We believe that Scripture teaches that Fathers bound together in Covenant with each other form an Eldership or Presbytery, and that presbyteries are constituted of units of 10s, 50s, 100s, 1000s.
One elder father is selected by the laying on of hands of fathers of the presbyterial unit of 10. An Over-seer is known to possess the gifts of over-sight according to scripture, he is appointed to help in ministry and judgment, to take care of the church of God by serving the fathers, elders, and individuals through pastoring, teaching, and exhortation according to the truth and justice of the Word of God with the council of the presbyters in his congregation.
Outside of the unit of 10 the Overseer is to serve as a representative elder in forming a greater presbytery called an ‘episcopate‘ which will help in maintaining the unity of the church as a whole. The Episcopates in like manner have 1 head over-seer who is selected by the other over-seers to minister in matters of judgment by councils when convened, One episcope / over-seer is to be selected as representative in council of the units of 50s 5 overseers, One episcope / over-seer is to be selected as representative in council of the units of 100s 10 overseers and One episcope / over-seer is to be selected as representative in council of the units of 1000s with 100 overseers.)
We believe Jesus Christ the resurrected is seated at the right hand of God the Father in the Heavens and Rules Now as LORD. Yet YHWH will do mighty things upon the earth in the times to come, when He heals the blindness of the Gentiles in restoring the Christian Faith and identity of the 12 tribes of Israel whom God has chosen for His own Glory in blessing all the families and peoples of the earth according to the promises made to Abraham in Christ.
We believe Christian Israel (144,000 men of war) will stand in the power of the Lamb of God upon the hills of the earth as a kingdom conquering and overcoming darkness by the Law and Gospel through the governmental unity of the Presbyterial Church as was accomplished in the times of Moses recorded in the books of Numbers and Joshua. There will be a time of apostasy as appointed unto the nations. After the millennia Christ will return to earth in his resurrected body, He shall place his feet upon Mt. Olive, and He shall judge the earth in Righteousness according to His Holy Law, when he shall cause the resurrection of the dead, when He shall judge all who lived before the throne of God the Father for their deeds.
Hereafter the Temple of Heaven will be established and restored for the glory of YHWH’s dwelling place upon earth, this temple will be built by resurrected saints according to His design,
And all nations upon earth will flow unto it!
As stated, these are generic terms and they loaded differently by different variations in doctrine and understanding, but it should give an idea of who we are.
