Foundational Christian Beliefs

By Debra Downey

A. The Godhead

God has at least 3 separate manifestations: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. God has, in various ways, reached down to man in order to communicate His will and interests. The Bible, in John 1, shows that God has been revealed in every manner by which man understands:

  1. We heard Him (Jn. 1:1 - The Word)
  2. We saw Him (Jn. 1:14 - The Flesh)
  3. We felt the power of His presence, i.e. His "Spirit" (Jn. 1:32-33 and Acts 2:17 and many others).By revealing Himself in limited form (Word, Flesh, Spirit), the Infinite God makes Himself known to finite man.

Adamic Creation

by Pastor Mark Downey

Identity believes in the biblical concept of creation as opposed to the Big Bang theory or evolution. When dealing with the particulars of the Genesis account, we differ with organized religion or the mainstream establishment of churchianity because of racial questions they fail to answer. It is the issue of race upon which God's plan for the ages, His reason for creation and it's purpose pertains. Much of the Bible is veiled in obscurity to most judeo-Christian's understanding because they have discarded the Old Testament for the New.

However, Genesis is the book of beginnings and there we shall start. It is not only the start of the universe and our planet and all life upon it, but it is also the beginning of a progressive revelation of God and His intentions for us. Most people don't have a clue as to what God wants of us. They think simplistically that they just get 'saved' so that they can go to heaven. Sorry! but nobody goes to heaven ("no man hath ascended up to heaven" John 3:13). It all happens here on earth. If we don't understand this first book, the rest of the Bible is convoluted.

The Flood of Noah

by Pastor Mark Downey

The story of the flood is not recounted merely as an event of the past but more importantly what the purpose of God is for man on earth, and consequently its value must lie in the moral and spiritual lessons it is designed to teach. The reality of the cataclysm itself is accepted by most Christians, although the significant details are hotly debated as we shall see.

As a generalization, it can be agreed that divine justice was tempered with mercy and the family of Noah was spared for a new day of opportunity. Here is the beginning of the concept of the remnant, which is the object of later prophetic Identity teachings. Our problem is with the idea of a worldwide flood. The major error of the religious establishment's narrative is that of cause and effect. The misunderstanding is simply a lack of knowledge of biblical terms, idioms, translations and an apathetic and prejudiced view of God's Word.

Our History - His Story

by Pastor Mark Downey

From the beginning of Adamic Creation, the pendulum of time has swung back and forth between the secular independence of our racial identity and a commitment to the divine origin of our race. A dependence upon the latter is what Christian Identity has rediscovered. Our race has been riddled with foreign concepts over the millennia challenging the idea that our race is an inextricable component of the God of Creation and God, as evidenced in His Word, has a blueprint of predestination for us.

As a people, we seem to drift in and out of the cognitive response to the supernatural realities of why we exist. The appellation of 'God's chosen people' has been obfuscated by conspiracy and manipulation of the pendulum, which denies the preeminence of White Christian civilization. Indeed, the preponderance of propaganda conjures an image of Jesus Christ as being a jew to the average misnomered gentile.

In fact, we are hounded and ridiculed at the slightest suggestion of White Supremacy or the truth about ancient Israel as it relates to us today. The Identity message is a constant story of a race of people being lost and found. Christ came for the 'lost sheep' (Mt. 15:24) and promised them that if they would seek after something, they would find it (Mt. 7:7).

Why Some People Just Don't Get It


by Pastor Mark Downey

When I first heard the Christian Identity message, I knew innately that it was the truth; without hearing or studying the hundreds of proofs substantiating this claim. So many things began to make sense. I know for some people, there is not an immediate acceptance. There are many avenues which can lead a White person to the realization that the Bible was not written to all the races of the earth. We, and we alone, fulfill the words of scripture predicted for Israel. I was well acquainted with historical revisionism and the so called jewish holocaust of WWII. Their lies, as Martin Luther put it, automatically divorced themselves from biblical truth and any purported associations they claim with the Holy Bible. But some people still claim jewish disinformation as factual and are thus deceived.

A Bible Love Story

by Pastor Mark Downey

Today, I would like to share the greatest love story that few have heard. Sometimes God reveals the truth in ways that have not been previously told. Past generations have gotten so caught up in religion that by omission, the greatest love story has not been told. But, once it is revealed, I think it's a truth that is earth shaking and one that can entirely change a person's life and understanding of the Bible.

When Moses officiated the covenant ceremony between God and the Israelites at Mt. Sinai, it was a wedding and they were pronounced man and wife. An entire nation of blood relatives, composed of 12 tribes or large families, became the bride and wife of God. They were known collectively as Israel and should not be confused with the modern application by the same name. In fact, God still loves these descendants of ancient Israel, but they became, as Jesus called them, the lost sheep.

A Study on Philip and the Ethiopian Eunuch

by Pastor Mark Downey

" ... the story about Philip and the Ethiopian found in Acts 8:26-40. It has been assumed by contemporary seminary trained doctors of divinity that the Ethiopian of 2000 years ago is the same as today, as if to say the demographics remained static. We in Christian Identity respectfully disagree.

The key to the identity of the Ethiopian eunuch is to find out who the inhabitants of Ethiopia in New Testament times really were. Many Judeo-Christian publishers gloss the Ethiopian as an arbitrary African Negro without much historical accuracy. History is replete with examples of territories changing in racial make-up via wars, famines, migrations etc.

In Defense of Legends

by Pastor Mark Downey

Are legends Christian? Some people don't think so. A legend is a story coming down from the past, especially one popularly regarded as historical although not verifiable. 'Prima scriptura', which holds that the Bible is the primary source of doctrine, but that understanding can be improved by reference to other sources. 'Sola scriptura', on the other hand, a product of the Protestant Reformation, leaves us a legacy that has evolved from the original protest against church authority, in contradistinction to the Bible itself having sole authority. A legend can be either good or bad, true or false. The point to remember is that it is something that is passed down generationally. Of course, God's Word is the final authority; it's just what you do with it.

Racial Issues of the Bible

Interview with Pastor Downey

I was recently given the opportunity to give a Christian Identity response to a bible college project on racism. Specifically, I addressed some of the comments made at the Kinsman Redeemer website. Many of the questions go directly to the core message of race in the Bible. Most of these students are probably hearing the focus of Identity for the first time. We therefore ask our friends in the Christian Identity community to pray that the planting of these seeds finds fertile ground and will grow with God's blessings.

The Old Man: Dead on Arrival Part 1


by Pastor Mark Downey

“Knowing this, that our old man was crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed” Romans 6:6.

Question: do you know what is worse than a wicked young man? Answer: a wicked old man! Why? Because he has had a lot more practice. The Bible is about winners and losers. Christianity is about victory. There are two races in Scripture. The first is the White Adamic/Israelite race. The second is the contest in which the White race must cross the finish line. We are a chosen race in a race to obtain a prize. Our race has two movements competing against each other. One is secular and the other is spiritual. There are two different prizes. “Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible” I Cor. 9:25.

From time to time, I get comments from brothers and sisters in Christ that Christian Identity does not preach the Gospels or fundamental teachings of salvation. And that’s usually true, because so many of us came out of the denominations that did fortunately teach us these things. But, we have a new generation that is unschooled in these basic understandings and so it behooves us to review our basic Christian responsibilities from an Identity perspective. So, this sermon is for both young and old
