During the leadership of the said His Holiness M.V. Shembe (uThingolwenkosazana) the church management and control was cunningly usurped by the irreligious click, rendering the church become unruly and completely deviating from the purpose for which the Nazareth Baptist Church was founded.
And whereas the above challenges presently facing the church has necessitated that we ultimately repudiate our membership from the said church and establish a reformed Nazareth Baptist Church to be known as Nazarites Church of God in order to preserve the image of this faith as envisaged by its founder the Prophet Isaiah Shembe.
Statement of Doctrine
We believe and adhere to the teachings of the Prophet Isaiah Shembe as contained in the hymns of the AmaNazaretha that there is one God whose name is Jehovah and that Shembe is the Prophet and the Servant of God Jehovah as stated in Hymn 134 and Hymn 60 verse 4 of the Hymns of the AmaNazaretha.
We profess that our teachings of UbuNazaretha Faith will be guided by the first commandment of the Sabbath Prayer verses 3-4: “Fear Jehovah, or generations upon generations, and observe His laws which He, Jehovah, wrote through His Servant Moses, so that your worship maybe acceptable in the Lord of Host.
Because if you do not worship him through His laws, He will not accept your prayers. He can never pour His blessings down upon you if you do not obey His laws.”
The Church Hierachy
The Spiritual head of the church is the Prophet and Founder of UbuNazaretha the Prophet Isaiah Shembe and his spiritual successors thereof as mentioned, whether they exist in humankind or as divine spirit.
The high Priest is the spiritual and the administrative director who will be known as UMELUSI without any translation of this name.
The high Priest is accountable to the spiritual head of the church who is Shembe(Holy Spirit) and to God whose name is Jehovah as well as to the Nazarites Church of God.
