We bring you greetings in the precious name of Jesus Christ, from Christ Apostolic Temple, Inc. Fellowship (CATIF). We are pleased you decided to visit us. CATIF is an organization of churches preparing to meet our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, our soon coming king. We are a bible based and believe one must "come out from among them and be ye separate." (2 Cor 6:14-17). Therefore we do not mix, believe, nor support the ecumenical movement. As the scripture states in Deuteronomy 22:9-10:
"Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled. Thou shalt not plow with an ox and an ass together."
According to the dietary laws (Deut 14:1-8), the ox was a "clean" animal, but the donkey was "unclean." Even more compelling was the fact that these two different animals couldn't plow a straight furrow. Their temperaments, natural instincts, and physical characteristics made it impossible. As with seed, God is protecting his peoples food.
We are a Jesus Only, Apostolic, Holiness organization. We are Jesus Only because there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12). Peter preached on the day of Pentecost that we must be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2:38). The definition of Apostolic is simply "of or relating to the Apostles". We are Apostolic because we are continuing steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine as the saints in Acts 2:42. Jesus taught the disciples three years before he was crucified. Before ascending up into heaven after he had risen, Christ appeared to the eleven disciples and said, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature (Mark 16:15). As Jesus prayed one of his prayers he said, Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word (John 17:20). We are holy because God said, Be ye holy (Leviticus 20:7). Holiness is our calling as Christians (1 Thessalonians 4:7).
We believe there is One Lord, One Faith and One Baptism. We believe marriage is between one man and one woman. We believe in living a holy and sanctified life according to the word of God. We believe the Lord Jesus is coming back to rapture his church away to heaven. We believe in baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and the infilling of the Holy Ghost.
