About Us

The Name…

Tetelestai pronounced Te'telestai

 The Meaning…

...from the Greek word τετέλεσται (Tetelestai) meaning "it is completed", which according to The Gospel of John, is the last word of Jesus on the cross..

While on the cross, Jesus spoke 7 times and His next to last words were "Tetelestai" followed by "Father, into thy hands I commit My Spirit."

"When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, IT IS FINISHED: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost." -John 19:30

What is the significance of the word, Tetelestai, to us, the believer? In short, everything!!

"What a grand utterance (is "Tetelestai")! Now are we safe, for salvation is complete. The (sin) debt was now, to the last farthing, all discharged. The atonement and propitiation were made once and for all and forever, by the one offering made in Jesus’ body on the Tree. There was the cup; Hell was in it; the Savior drank it—not a sip and then a pause—not a draught (a single act of drinking) and then a ceasing. He drained it till there is not a dreg left for any of His people. The great ten-thronged whip of the Law was worn out upon His back. There is no lash left with which to smite one for whom Jesus died. The great cannonade ("continuous heavy gunfire") of God’s justice has exhausted all its ammunition—there is nothing left to be hurled against a child of God (Beloved, do you believe these great benefits are yours in Christ?). Sheathed is thy sword, O Justice! Silenced is thy thunder, O Law! There remains nothing now of all the griefs and pains and agonies which chosen sinners ought to have suffered for their sins, for Christ has endured all for His own beloved (1Thess: 1:4) and IT IS FINISHED. Christ has paid the debt which all the torments of eternity could not have paid. Once again—when He said, “IT IS FINISHED,” Jesus had totally destroyed the power of Satan, of sin and of death. The Champion accepted the challenge to do battle for our soul’s redemption against all our foes. He met Sin. Horrible, terrible, all-but omnipotent Sin nailed Him to the Cross. But in that deed, Christ nailed Sin also to the tree. There they both did hang together—Sin and Sin’s Destroyer. Sin destroyed Christ and by that destruction Christ destroyed Sin."-Charles Spurgeon

 “We need not fear that either sin or Satan or law shall condemn us at the last day. We may lean back on the thought that we have a Savior Who has done all, paid all, accomplished all, performed all that is necessary for our salvation. We may take up the challenge of the Apostle, "Who is the one who condemns? (Rom. 8:1) Christ Jesus is He Who died, yes, rather Who was raised, Who is at the right hand of God; Who also (continually) intercedes for us." (Rom. 8:34). When we look at our own works, we may well feel ashamed of their imperfections. But when we look at the FINISHED WORK of Christ, we may feel peace (Heb. 12:2)." Hallelujah!    -J.C. Ryle

  The Purpose…

As my zeal for Christ began to grow, I became more conscious about if what I wore represented me and my lifestyle. As a follower of Christ, I believe it is important to “Represent” the Kingdom in every aspect of our lives; there should be no separation in our lifestyles and our devotion to Christ. That light we've obtained through Christ should permeate every walk of our life...we definitely should stand out, especially, during these times when there is uncertainty, chaos and a sense of hopelessness for many. Not only should we as children and heirs be a light in this world, we need to inform people of their need for a savior with a sense of urgency. I don't believe we truly love a person if you can't help them recognize their desperate need of The Gospel...

One of my favorite sayings is: "You have to stop loving people to hell"

With that being said, I believe the best way to show love to others is to share the Gospel, "for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes"(Rom 1:16) As we see in our current culture, most clothing brands sometimes represent and support a culture that is moving further away from Biblical morality. As a follower of Christ, I believe what you choose to wear is indicative of what you believe and what you support; therefore, I wanted to create a brand that affirms our steadfastness in God’s Word.

The content on the clothing displays a different energy. The designs may be perceived by some as abrasive or controversial, but the intent is to be a catalyst to start conversations with others eventually leading to the Gospel as we are commissioned (Matt. 28:19). Additionally, it is encouragement and a reminder to us, the Church, to be bold and remain steadfast in Christ...no compromise, no cowering, no turning back…

This brand is truly for the believer that is serious about "saying what you mean and meaning what you say" regardless of the direction the culture is moving.

I hope you are truly blessed by this brand and more importantly I hope it aids in your personal walk with Christ.
