Our Beliefs

We believe in the one and only living God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the creator of heaven and earth. (Genesis 1:1, Isaiah 42:5)

We believe that Yeshua is Israel's promised Messiah and the Redeemer of the entire human race. By his life, death and resurrection He fulfilled the messianic prophecies of the Tanach about the Messiah's first coming. Yeshua, the divine Messiah, is the fullest revelation of God to man. (Isaiah 7:14, 9:6-7, 49:6, 53:1-12, Psalm 16:9-11, Colossians 1:15)

 We believe that God made man in His own image and endowed him with a longing for intimate fellowship with God. (Genesis 1:26-27, 5:1-2)

We believe that man's disobedience to God's revealed will caused a separation between man and God. (Genesis 2:16-17, Isaiah 59:1-2)

We believe that the only provision God made for reconciling man to Himself was through the atoning work of the Messiah, who died as the sacrifice for our disobedience and rose again, manifesting the victory over sin and death. (Leviticus 17:11, Isaiah 53:1-12, 2 Corinthians 5:19)

We believe that the Bible, both the Tanach and the Brit ha-Chadashah, is God's Word to man and the only reliable and safe guide to faith and conduct. (Numbers 12: 6-8, Isaiah 8:20, 2 Timothy 3:16-17)

We believe that all who repent from sin and accept God's message of salvation in the Messiah are born of the Ruach haKodesh (the Holy Spirit). Faith in the Messiah as the mediator for the New Covenant makes us children of God. (Jeremiah 31:31-34, Ezekiel 36:24-27, John 1:11-13)

We believe that those who are of the Ruach haKodesh become members of the universal people of God, or the Body of Messiah. This one spiritual fellowship through the Messiah includes both Jews and Gentiles as equal members of this Body. (1 Corinthians 12:12-13, 27, Ephesians 5:30-32)

We believe in the work and presence of the Ruach haKodesh in the life of the believer. He brings forth the fruit of righteousness in the life of all followers of the Messiah. The Ruach haKodesh also orders and leads the local body of believers, enabling them to become a community of love and service through the fruits and the gifts of the Ruach haKodesh. (Romans 8:1-4, 1 Corinthians 12, Romans 12)

We believe that God gave the practices of the Law for moral instruction and as the body of cultural, moral, ethical, and national practices, which would point forward to the Messiah's work. The Law is valid expiation of lifestyle as a reflection of God's righteous standard and as a means of preserving a distinct nation of Israel. Fulfillment by Yeshua does not imply the abrogation of the law, rather a correct interpretation and practical application of its precepts. Therefore, within the Universal Body of believers, Jewish people can maintain their distinctive biblical and cultural identity. The Law yields no merits for salvation, which is a sovereign work of God. When assumed to be a system of righteousness by works, the Law can only bring guilt and destruction, for none can live up to its holy and perfect standards. Righteousness with God is based solely upon grace through faith, which is evidenced by an outworking of obedience. (Deuteronomy 30:11-20, 6:20-25, Psalm19:7-14, Matthew 5:17-19, Romans 3:27-31, 6:23, Ephesians 2:8)

 We believe that the nation of Israel is chosen by God to be a channel of blessing to all the nations on earth. The return of our people to their land is in fulfillment of biblical prophecy. The day will come when Israel as a nation will accept the Messiah Yeshua. Then shall the Word of God go forth from Zion. After the Messiah Yeshua's return, He will establish world-wide rule from Jerusalem. (Genesis 12:1-3, Isaiah 11, Zechariah 12:10, 13:1)

We believe that as Messianic Jews we maintain an unique identity in Messiah. On the one hand, we, with the rest of our kinsmen according to the flesh, make up the people of Abraham, the Jewish people (Isaiah 11:16; Jeremiah 31:31; Romans 9:1-5, 11:1-5), and on the other hand, we are part of God's kingdom of believers in our age, and share those spiritual blessings with our Gentile brethren (Isaiah 49:6; Romans 11:17-18; Eph. 2:14, 22; Gal. 3:28).
