What We Believe
We believe the Bible, composed of the Tanakh (Old Testament) and the Brit Hadashah (New Testament), is the only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
2 Timothy 3:15-17, Romans 15:4; 2 Peter 1:19-21, Hebrews 4:2, Ephesians 6:17
God Is One
We believe God is One (echad), as declared in the Shema, the core Jewish prayer drawn from Deuteronomy 6:4-9. The word echad means “a united one” or “compound unity”; this compound unity is eternally existent in three co-equal, indivisible persons – God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit.
Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 48:16-17, 1 John 5:7-13
Yeshua (Jesus) is God
We believe that Jesus is the Messiah (Yeshua HaMashiach), God Himself in the form of man. We believe He was miraculously born from a virgin as Scripture prophesied, and that His virgin birth was to be a sign to Israel of His Messiahship.
Genesis 3:15, Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah 9:6-7, Matthew 1:22-23
Jesus’ Miraculous Life
We believe Yeshua demonstrated his Messiahship through many miracles during his earthly ministry – and that He continues to do miracles for that same purpose today. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His future return for His followers, both living and dead, and the future establishment of His reign on Earth.
Isaiah 53:8-11, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Isaiah 9:6-7, 1 Corinthians 11:26, Zechariah 12:6-10, Zechariah 14:16-21
Forgiven by God’s Grace
We believe in Yeshua’s sacrificial death as our atonement. We believe that the only means of being forgiven of our sin is through the mercy and unearned, undeserved favor of our loving heavenly Father. We believe that individual salvation comes solely through by faith in the shed blood of Yeshua, the Lamb of God who paid the price for our sin through His perfect life and self-giving death.
Leviticus 17:11, Ephesians 2:8, Romans 1:17, Habakkuk 2:4,John 3:3, Hebrews 11:6,Genesis 15:6
Ruach HaKodesh (The Holy Spirit)
We believe that the Ruach HaKodesh dwells within Believers, convicting, comforting, teaching and empowering Believers to live a life pleasing to God.
Jeremiah 31:31-34, John 14:15-17, Galatians 5:13-25
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; the saved to everlasting life and the lost to eternal separation from God and a state of everlasting punishment.
Daniel 12:2, Matthew 25:46, Psalm 69:28, Revelation 20:12-15
We believe the Jews according to the flesh (descendants of Abraham through Isaac, whether through the blood line of the mother or the father) who place their faith in Israel’s Messiah Yeshua have not disowned or separated themselves from their race and Judaic heritage, but remain sons and daughters of Israel. Gentiles who place their faith in Israel’s Messiah Yeshua also become spiritual sons and daughters of Abraham.
Galatians 3:28-29, Romans 2:28-29, Genesis 15:6
Jewish Followers of Yeshua
We believe Jewish followers of Yeshua are called to maintain their Jewish biblical heritage and remain part of the Jewish people in addition to functioning as part of the universal body of Believers, the Church. This is part of our identity and a witness to the faithfulness of God.
Romans 3:1-4, 1 Corinthians 7:17-20, Acts 21:20-24
New Covenant Body of Believers
We believe the New Covenant body of Believers consists of both Jews and Gentiles who have accepted Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah) as the promised Redeemer. We believe that the “middle wall of partition,” which in times past separated Jews and Gentiles, has been demolished and the enmity between them is eliminated by the Messiah Yeshua.
Ephesians 2:12-14, Acts 10:34, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Hebrews 10:25, Ephesians 3:6, 10-12
