Frequently Asked Questions


Q: How do I repent?

A: The short answer is 1 Kings 8:46-49. You want to bethink (remember) who you are in terms of your identity according to God. You are not black, hispanic, or native american, you are an Israelite. You then want to repent, meaning turn from your sins.

The only way you can repent from your sins, is knowing what sins you have committed. Sin, according to 1 John 3:4, is transgressing or breaking the laws of God.

You must then study the laws of God to see what sins you have committed, then forsake those sins. That is how you become a new creature in Christ.
