The Name

We believe that God has used many different titles, such as “God Elohim”, “God Almighty”, “El Shaddai”, “Jehovah”, and especially “Jehovah Lord”, the redemptive name in the Old Testament.  Isaiah 9:6 reads:

“Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: …and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

This prophecy of Isaiah was fulfilled when the Son of God was named in Matthew 1:21 saying:

“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shall call His name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins”.

We believe His name (Jesus or Yeshua in Hebrew) is the true name of God and that there is power in that name (John 14:14; Philippians 2:8-9; Colossians 3:17).  The scriptures declare the importance and superiority of His name as in Acts 4:12 saying:

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”
