God's Holy Days

The Church of God faithfully observes the seven scripturally commanded annual Holy Days which were given to us by the LORD through Moses, and which were kept by Jesus, His apostles and all of His faithful New Testament church members.

The Holy Days are annual Sabbaths called "the Feasts of the LORD."  
God commands His people to keep, not only the  weekly Sabbath Day; 
but His annual Festivals as well.

The Holy Days reveal God's continuing plan for all mankind. 
From Jesus Christ's sacrifice as the Passover Lamb to the Last Great Day, 
the Holy Days explain God's intervention in bringing many sons to glory.

And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying,
"Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, 
'Concerning the feasts of the LORD, 
which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, 
even these are my feasts.'"
(Leviticus 23:1-2)
