HISTORY

The Presbytery of Ministers of Kodesh Mishkan Ministry Group have a diverse religious history. Our backgrounds include Catholicism, Presbyterian, Methodist & Baptist Protestantism, Messianic Judaism and Pentecostalism. During our fellowship, we compared and contrasted, looking for areas of CONSENSUS rather than areas of difference. Our desire was to find the most reliable religious tradition in which to place our converts. This led us to “start over from the beginning”, and study the Eastern Orthodox Christian Faith.

The Presbytery of Ministers then developed our Statement of Faith to incorporate those most faithful aspects, straining out the influences of the Roman See, the biases of Reformation Protestantism, and the errors and misinterpretations of modern Pentecostalism to create a reliable interpretation of first-century Christian belief.

We quickly realized that our unique Statement of Faith would require us to form a new Church organization.

LITERATURE

Our primary literature is The Holy Bible. We recommend the Orthodox Study Bible (available in the New American Standard and New King James Versions).

For training purposes, we have developed our Ministerial Handbook, explaining our organization, doctrine and polity. The Ministerial Handbook is available upon request, by emailing ContactUs@kmmg.org. The file is too large for Messenger apps.

We are developing our 100-400 level Discipleship Manuals, a compilation of sermons and devotionals, ranging in scope from new to advanced believers. These manuals will aid people in understanding our beliefs and why we hold them.

We are also comiling a Prayer Book, for clergy and lay usage. This is a compilation of Orthodox prayers modified to reflect our beliefs.
