Our Beliefs

In studying the Jewish perspective, the plan of Redemption is completely revealed in the Torah.  The Christian Church owes it's existence to the Hebrew Messiah.  Its roots are in the promise that God gave Avraham Avinu (Father Abraham), "And by you all familes of the earth shall be blessed" (Genesis 12:3).

The Tanakh (Old Testiment) was given by God to the Jews to guard God's truth and share it with every kindred, tongue, and tribe.  Yeshua (Jesus) stated "Don't think that I have come to abolish Torah or the prophets.  I have not come to abolish, but to complete (establish).  Yes, indeed!  I tell you that until heaven and earth pass away, not so much of a Yud or a stoke will pass from the Torah - not until everything that must happen has happened."  (Matthew 5:17-19).

According to Romans 11, God's olive tree is made up of both natural and wild branches (Jews and Gentiles).  In Ephesians 2:11-14, we find Messiah Himself as our Shalom - he has broken down the m'chitzah (middle wall) which divides us.  Therefore we believe the Kehilot (congregation) consists of Jews and Gentiles worshipping in unity.

We believe:

  • In Elohim: one God, Abba (Father); Yeshua, (Son) and the Ruach Hakodesh (Holy Spirit); a unity of three co-eternal persons.  (Matthew 28:19; Hebrews 1:1-3).

  • The death of Yeshua on the tree at Calvary, as the atoning sacrifice, for our sins, and that by God's grace through faith in His shed blood, that we are saved from sin and it's penalty.  (John 3:16; Acts 4:12).

  • God, through Messiah, forgives our sins and gives us a new heart.  (Acts 3:19; Romans 12:1-2).

  • The righteousness of Messiah, my intercessor in the heavenly sanctuary  (Revelation 20:11-12).

  • The Bible is God's inspired word, the only rule of faith and practice for the believer.  (2 Timothy 3:15-16).

  • The Ten Commandments are a transcript of the character of God and a revelation of His will.  (Genesis 2:1-3; Exodus 20:1-17; Deuteronomy 51:22; James 2:10-12; Luke 23:54-56).

  • In the soon visible coming of Yeshua, when the mortal...will put on immortality.  (John 14:1-3; Matthew 24:25).

  • In Temple organization to worship God and to support the Temple with our tithes, offerings, personal efforts, and influence.  (Matthew 25:20-21; Numbers 18:25; Deuteronomy 26:10).

  • Our bodies are the Temple of the Rauch Hakodesh (Holy Spirit).  We avoid the use of that which is harmful, abstaining from unclean foods and unhealthy practices.  (1 Corinthians 6:19-20; 10:31; 2 Corinthians 6:16-18; Leviticus chapter 11; 1 Timothy 2:9-10).

  • Mikvah (baptism by immersion) as public expression of faith in Yeshua (Matthew 3:13-17).

  • Teaching the commandments and faith of Yeshua to every nation, tongue, and tribe where all are invited into fellowship.  (Matthew 28:18-20; 2 Corinthians 6:19-20).

  • The Jewish people who believe in Yeshua should be able to retain the Biblical culture of their Hebrew roots.  To reveal to the Jewish people that Yeshua is the Messiah of the Tanach (Old Testiment).

  • We want to show the Gentile believer that Yeshua was an observant Jew throughout His life.

  • This is a congregation where Jew and Gentile can experience the joy Yeshua brings into the lives of all who embrace Him.

  • The Christian Church has lost much of the rich heritage that is intrinsically Jewish.  To take Yeshua out of His Jewish context leaves us searching for clues regarding events in His life.  For example, the hem of Yeshua's garment that the woman touched in Matthew 9:20 was the tzitzit required by the Torah in Numbers 15:37-41.
