The House of Israel Polania is the assembly of Israel. It associates believers who are born again and filled with the Holy Spirit. Everything we do and believe is rooted in the Bible only. We left the pagan-Christian system with its calendar and feasts. We have come back to everything that functioned in the New Testament assemblies of Israel in the first age and was later changed illegally. We return to the whole teaching of Jesus Christ- the Second Messiah. His life and teaching is the foundation of our faith.
We identify with testimony of the Apostle Paul, when he said:
I worship the God of our fathers as a follower of the Way, which they call a sect. I believe everything that agrees with the Law and that is written in the Prophets
— Acts 24:14
It is because of my hope in what God has promised our fathers. This is the promise our twelve tribes are hoping to see fulfilled as they earnestly serve God day and night
— Acts 26:6-7
The Assembly began its activity in February 1997, when in response to the voice of God the group of believers started regular meetings of the Bible School. We were entered in the Register of Churches in December 1997. In February 2016 we officially changed the name from the Christian Church New Life to the House of Israel Polania.
We feel to be continuators of the faith of Abraham, Moses, prophets of Israel, Jesus and the apostles, the New Testament assemblies of Israel, and also of everyone who was the pioneer of the true belief in the territory of Poland: Vandals and Goths of the IV century, the Polish Brethren of the XVI century, free people seeking God.
We are the Israelites living today in dispersion among the nations, waiting for the coming of the Messiah, who will gather the whole Israel.
We do not identify with either the Roman Church established in the IV century as one of institution of the Roman Empire or its Protestant branches.
Polania it is one of two Hebrew names defining Poland. It means literally: Jehovah lives here. And that here, on the territory of Poland, live people who use the name of Jehovah for God. The House of Israel Polania describes believers who belong to the lost, after the Assyrian captivity, sheep from the House of Israel. Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah, came to find them, save and re-gather.
What we believe in
It is the one, final and supreme authority we have on the earth. It was written by people inspired by the Holy Spirit. It teaches us about a man and God. It indicates the way of salvation.
God is one. He is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent. The creator of earth and heaven. Jehovah is His name revealed to Moses. He is the Father for all who are born again and are justified by faith in the work and person of Jesus Christ.
Jeshua HaMaszijach-Jesus Christ, came to the world to reveal and fulfill the will of the Father. He gave His life in sacrifice for sins of the whole mankind. He was crucified and raised again after three days and three nights. He ascended into heaven and is sitting now at the right hand of the Father. In the time appointed by the Father, He will come back again to the earth. Jeshua is the head of the assembly of Israel.
The Holy Spirit was sent to the earth after Jesus` resurrection in the Feast of Shavuot- Weeks. He is the author of the new birth. He lives in believers. He helps believers to live in holiness- separation of unclean, pagan. He gives power for victorious life.
He was created in the image and likeness of God. He is a spirit, has a soul, and lives in a body. He is a human being from the mother`s womb. The man is the culmination of the process of creation of heaven and earth. God left all creation under his dominion.
Baptism means immersion.
THE WATER BAPTISM is a part of the process of salvation together with the new birth. An individual who confessed consciously his faith in person and the work of Jesus Christ is immersed in water. It is synonymous with immersion in the death and resurrection of Jesus. His old nature is buried in water. A person begins a new life in Christ.
BAPTISM IN THE SPIRIT is the process when a spirit of a believer is immersed and filled with the Holy Spirit. Speaking in new tongues is the sign of receiving this baptism. This baptism is the way to further manifestations of the Spirit of God, when a believer receives other gifts of the Spirit, such as the word of knowledge, wisdom, healings, prophesying, etc.
The body of Christ- the Messiah is a community of new born believers, who have become a part of Israel since that time, and more specifically-one of the twelve tribes of Israel, regardless of their origin from twelve tribes or from the Gentiles.
Jehovah has the new covenant only with the House of Judah -the Jews today and with the House of Israel- the other ten tribes. Jesus Christ is the foundation and the head of the assembly of Israel.
Jesus Christ is the high priest of our confession. Every born again man, regardless of a gender, is a priest of Jehovah. The New Testament priest does not bring offerings. Jesus` sacrifice on the cross is the only and sufficient one.
All believers, priests have right to take part in the Lord`s Supper in two forms- bread and wine.
It is a full of life relationship, community with the living God. We pray in the name of Jesus to our Father-Jehovah who is in heaven. We do not pray at the rosary, to dead people, to so called saints or angles. We do not worship any objects of cult, such as sculptures, pictures.
There are differences and as a result different roles between man and a woman in marriage, which is the union between man and woman. In Jesus Christ, in the spirit there are no such differences. A woman, like a man, can serve God leading an Assembly of God or can be used in any other ministry.
Jesus as the Second Moses taught exactly the same what Moses did and He did not annul or change the Law. However, no one can be saved by attempts to fulfill it. We are born again only through faith in what Jesus did for us. Salvation is the gift given us by God and is only by grace through faith. On the other hand, God gives us power of His Spirit and grace to fulfill His Law. Doing it, we show that we love God.
Sabbath is the part of the Law. It is the time from a sunset on Friday to sunset on Saturday. It is the last day of God`s week. It is the holy day- separated by God as a day of rest and assembly for the people of God.
Jehovah commands us in His Word to observe such feasts as: Passover, the feast of Unleavened Bread, Shavuot- the feast of Weeks, which are the spring feasts. And the feast of Trumpets, Day of Atonement, and the feast of Tabernacles, which are the autumn feasts. All these feasts were or will be fulfilled by the person and work of Jesus.
Other feasts, as “Christmas” or “Easter”, etc. are not biblically justified and are rooted in the Pagan feasts and customs.
Both the Sabbaths and the Biblical feasts were not only kept by the Old Testament Israel, but also by the New Testament assemblies of Israel.
The House of Judah- the Jews -are people coming from the tribe of Judah, Benjamin and part of Levi. They live today mostly in unbelief in the person and work of Jesus. The Bible calls them the branches cut off from the olive tree.
Thanks to the Jews believing in Jesus, the Gospel began to be preached. Jesus and all His apostles were Jews. We owe the existence of the Bible to the Jews. The Word promises that in the end they shall also believe in Jesus and shall be saved.
The good news preached to the sheep lost from the House of Israel that they can return to the covenant with God by what Jesus did. This covenant was broken by the sin of the House of Israel, to whom Jehovah gave the certificate of divorce. The Gospel is preached everywhere, because the House of Israel was scattered among every nation. The Gentiles are also grafted in Israel through their faith.
Prophecies which fulfill in our eyes testify that we live in the end times. We believe in Antichrist`s appearance, coming of the Great Tribulation, the Christ`s second return, the first resurrection of believers for the Judgment, Exodus, the Lamb`s Wedding, the Millennial Kingdom. We believe in victory of Jesus Christ in the battle of Armageddon, the second resurrection of all people for the Great Judgment and in the establishment of the new Heaven and new Earth. At the end of times sin, death, Satan and everyone who serves him will be thrown to the Fiery Lake.
Death of a man is a consequence of sins and is unavoidable. There is no reincarnation. Body, which is from dust, dies during death. Spirit and soul, invisible and eternal, go to the place of their destination: to heaven- paradise, or hell- Hades. There is no purgatory.
In the paradise spirits and souls of saved people wait for full resurrection to eternal life with God, when they will receive new bodies, and for the judgment, when believers will receive awards for good works. In hell unsaved people wait for resurrection, the Great Judgment and eternal condemnation.
People who live cannot and should not contact dead people.
