We, the people of the Sovereign Ecclesiastical Empire of Abyssinia, in an effort to unite as a sovereign ecclesiastical state, under the protection of Yahuah Elohim – the Almighty God, do hold these things as truth:
We hold true that: there is and always shall be only one Elohim (God), who has revealed Himself through time and the Holy Scriptures as being Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We hold true that: the Holy Scriptures, both the Old and New Testament contain the Word of God, and all things necessary for the salvation of man.
We hold true that: the Son, Yahusha Mashiach (aka Jesus Christ) is the King of kings and Lord of lords.
We hold true that: the Kingdom of God is a literal and growing nation comprised of true believers and citizens of all kindred, nations and tongues.
We hold true that: the Ecclesiastical Empire of Abyssinia is the manifestation of the reunification of the Lost Tribes of Israel known as the Tribes of Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Yehudah (Judah), Dan, Naphtali, Gad, Asher, Issachar, Zebulun, Yosef (Joseph) and Benyamin, which were dispersed throughout the world into every man-made nation and government.
We hold true that: it is our inalienable right, as children of the El Elyon (Most High God) and descendants of the Tribe of Yehudah to reclaim and re-establish our nation, which is indeed an Ecclesiastical Empire.
We hold true that: each and every citizen is free and unhindered by oppressive man-made laws of fictitious governmental rule and servitude.
We hold true that: it is the divine duty of each and every citizen to follow the mandates and laws of the Yahuah Elohim (Almighty God), and be free to defend themselves and their kinsmen within the scope and provision of Divine Law, which is prescribed in the Holy Scriptures and the Canons of the Holy Church.
We hold true that: each and every citizen is required by the very law of Yahuah Elohim (God) to worship Him in spirit and in truth, without any mixture of man-made doctrines or superstitious beliefs.
Therefore, in recognition whereof, we hereby unite and proclaim that the Ecclesiastical Empire of Abyssinia is a Sovereign Ecclesiastical State, vested with all rights, privileges, responsibilities and immunities of the same.
