Statements of Faith

We believe:

... in one G-d, existing from all eternity as the Father, the Son, and the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit). 1 Corinthians 8:6, Matthew 28:19, Matthew 3:16-17.

We believe Yeshua is the Messiah, Anointed One and Redeemer...
...That in the fullness of time the Divine Son, the eternal Word and Wisdom of G-d, became a human being, Yeshua the Messiah - born of a Jewish virgin, Miriam of Nazareth. We believe He fulfilled, without blemish, the mitzvot (commandments) of the Torah and taught His followers
how to truly follow Torah correctly - Matthew 5:17.
... That He died in atonement for the sins of Israel and of the entire world - 1 Corinthians 15:3, Galatians 1:4, was raised bodily from the dead - Matthew 28:1-10, and ascended to heaven; and He will return in glory at the end of the age to judge the world - John 5:26-29, to save those who belong to Him - Hebrews 9:26-28, and to accomplish the final Tikkun
Olam (Mending of the World) - Revelation 21:1-2.


We believe humankind was created in God’s image. However, through disobedience, humankind became sinful and in need of redemption...
... Men and women are created in the image of God - Genesis 1:26-27, however because of disobedience, mankind fell from the first state and became separated from God - Genesis
2:17; 3:22-24. Therefore, according to the Scriptures, all humans are born with a sinful nature - Psalm 14:1-3; 49:7; 53:13; Isaiah 64:6; Romans 3:9-12, 23; 5:12. Our only hope for redemption (salvation) is through the atonement made by the Messiah - Leviticus 17:11; Isaiah 53; Daniel 9:24-26; 

I Corinthians 15:22; Hebrews 9:11-14, 28; John 1:12, 3:36, resulting in regeneration by the Holy Spirit - Titus 3:5, which is the new birth - John 3:3-8. For by grace we are saved
through faith, it is a gift of God - Ephesians 2:8-9.


We believe the Gifts of the Spirit and 5-Fold Ministry are ordained by the Ruach (Holy Spirit) and still in operation today...
... Those gifts of the Spirit are wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, miraculous powers, prophecy, discerning of spirits, speaking in different kinds of tongues and interpretation of
tongues, and these gifts are all given by the same Ruach distributed to each one as He sees fit so we may operate as one body in unity and service to one another - 1 Corinthians 12:8-14
... Yeshua has equipped apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers so the body of believers may be equipped and attain the whole measure of the fullness of Yeshua - Ephesians


We believe in the sacred holy assemblies of G-d...
... Beginning with the seventh day Sabbath, Pesach (Passover), Feast of Unleavened Bread, Offering of the Firstfruits, Shavuot (Feast of Weeks), Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets), 

Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) and Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles) and The Eighth Day Feast - Leviticus 23. These appointed convocations of the Lord are all reflected and find their fulfillment in Yeshua.


We believe gender is a God-given gift...
... We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary genders reflect the image and nature of G-d - Genesis 1:26-27. Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.


We believe in the sanctity of marriage...
... We believe the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture - Genesis 2:18-25. We believe God
intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. We believe God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.


We believe in abstaining from sexual immorality...
... We believe any form of sexual immorality or perversion, including adultery, fornication, homosexual or bisexual behavior, transgender association, transsexual orientation, pedophila, bestiality, incest, or use of pornography is sinful and offensive to God - Leviticus 18, Romans 1:24-27, 

1 Corinthians 6:9-10.

We believe salvation is for all...
...That forgiveness of sins, spiritual renewal, union with Messiah, the empowering and sanctifying presence of the indwelling Ruach HaKodesh, the confident hope of eternal life, and a glorious resurrection are available to all who put their faith in Yeshua - Acts 4:12, and in obedience to His word are joined to Him and His Body through Messianic Tevilah/Mikvah (Immersion) - Acts 2:38. He is the Mediator between G-d and all creation, and no one can come to the Father except through Him - John 14:6.


We believe in the inerrancy of the Holy Scriptures...
... The Hebrew Scriptures and the Apostolic Writings are divinely inspired and are of supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and life - 2 Timothy 3:16, Isaiah 40:8. We also believe we can draw from wisdom of Rabbinic resources, though we do not hold them to be equal with Biblical scripture.


We believe in community...
... As a congregation, we are determined to live according to the words of Yeshua in Matthew 22:37-40: “He told him, ‘You are to love Adonai your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.’ This is the greatest and most important mitzvah. And a second is similar to it, ‘You are to love your neighbor as yourself.’ All of the Torah and the Prophets are dependent on these two mitzvot.”


We believe in worship of the one true G-d...
... We are committed to worship in Spirit and truth for God’s pleasure - John 4:24. We believe worship is a testimony of our passion for God, an instrument of spiritual warfare - 

2 Chronicles 20:17-22, and provokes unbelievers to jealousy.


We believe in a foundation of prayer and intercession...
... We are committed to praying together for God’s leading, enabling and blessing in all our endeavors - 1 Timothy 2:1. We also encourage the Church around the world to pray for Israel’s
physical and spiritual restoration - Jeremiah 30:3.


We believe in proclaiming the Good News of Messiah Yeshua...
... We are committed to the task of proclaiming with our lips and our lives that Yeshua the Messiah is the only Savior of Israel and the world - Matthew 28:16-20. Because much of the
Church is cut off from her Hebrew roots, Jewish people have often seen a distorted picture of Messiah Yeshua. Consequently we strive to reveal His true face in a loving, culturally relevant
and sensitive manner. We believe in the continuity of God's covenants with the Jewish people, the physical people of Israel - Jeremiah 31:35-36. We also believe our testimony is made real
and compelling when Jewish and non-Jewish disciples serve together as “one new man” - Ephesians 2:15. We believe God is restoring the Jewish people physically to their land and
spiritually to Himself. When this restoration is made complete Israel will again be a light to all nations.


We believe in the empowerment of the Holy Spirit...
... We are committed to Spirit-empowered ministry, recognizing we are inadequate in ourselves to fulfill our awesome calling. We encourage one another to be baptized in the Holy Spirit and
to be filled daily with His power - Acts 1:8, Acts 2:4, Acts 4:31. We encourage the operation of the gifts of the Spirit for mutual edification and producing lasting fruit - Galatians 5:22.


We believe in accountability...
... We are committed to walking together according to the biblical standard of holiness and righteousness - Proverbs 27:17, James 5:16. We believe in being accountable to God -
Romans 14:12, 2 Corinthians 5:10, to others in the congregation and are open to godly counsel from the wider Body of Messiah - 1 Corinthians 12:26-27, Hebrews 13:16-17.
