Battlefield Assembly of Messiah exists so that people from our area can come together to worship the Father in spirit and in truth. We focus on bringing people to an experience with Yahweh so that they leave changed and encouraged to fight life’s battles knowing our Father is on their side.
We meet on Saturday because we believe and affirm that the Sabbath Day (Saturday) is the prescribed day of rest and worship in the Bible.
The idea of resting and worshiping on the Sabbath instead of Sunday is rooted in the biblical tradition of the Sabbath. According to the Bible, the Sabbath is the seventh day of the week, which is Saturday, and it was established by Yahweh as a day of rest and worship for his people. In the Ten Commandments, Yahweh commands his people to “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy” (Exodus 20:8).
Furthermore, the New Testament does not record any instructions from Yeshua (Jesus) or his disciples to change the day of worship from Saturday to Sunday. In fact, Yeshua himself observed the Sabbath and taught his followers to do the same. In the Gospel of Luke, for example, we read that “as was his custom, [Yeshua] went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day” (Luke 4:16).
The practice of worshiping on Sunday instead of Saturday is believed to have originated in the early Christian church, as a way to distinguish itself from Judaism and to honor the day of Yeshua’s resurrection. However, this shift was not based on any explicit biblical command or instruction.
Therefore, for those who believe in the authority of the Bible and the importance of following the Father’s commands, observing the Sabbath on Saturday would be the more faithful and obedient choice. This means setting aside time for rest and worship on the seventh day of the week, just as Yahweh instructed his people to do. It also means recognizing the importance of the Sabbath as a day of spiritual renewal and connection with the Father, and honoring it as a sacred and holy day.
We hope you will join us in remembering the Sabbath every week.

The belief that obedience to the Father’s commandments is necessary for salvation is a common misconception that many people hold when groups speak about the importance of keeping His commandments.
We affirm that a person is saved by faith in the Messiah Yeshua alone, not by any works or actions they do. However, this does not mean that we are free to ignore Yahweh’s commandments. Rather, obedience to His commandments is seen as a natural outgrowth of one’s faith in the Messiah and as a way of expressing gratitude for the gift of salvation.
Therefore, in the context of our church, we emphasize on keeping Yahweh’s commandments not to earn salvation, but rather to live in a way that is pleasing to Him and reflects the transformation that has taken place in the heart of a believer. The focus is on living out one’s faith in a tangible way, rather than on earning salvation through works.
