Statement of Faith
We believe that salvation for both Jews and Gentiles is available only through Jesus and His finished work (John 14:6; Acts 4:12)
We believe in the personal, bodily, visible return of the Lord Yeshua in power and glory to establish His Kingdom (Matthew 24:36-44).
We believe that the BIBLE, consisting of the Tanakh (Torah/Holy Scriptures) and the later writings commonly known as the B’rit Hadasha New Testament), is the only infallible and authoritative word of God. We acknowledge its divine inspiration, and accept its teachings as our final authority in all matters of faith and practice (Deut. 6:4-9; Ps. 119:89, 105; Isa. 48:12-16; Rom. 8:14-17; II Tim. 2:15, 3:16-17).
God the Father (Abba)
Our beliefs pertaining to God are found in the scriptures.
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14
“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.” John 4:23
“Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.” I Cor 1:3; (Gal. 1:1)
“He who overcomes shall be clothed in white garments, and I will not blot out his name from the Book of Life; but I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.” Rev. 3:5
“To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.” Rev. 3: 21
God the Son (HaBen)
God does have a Son and we acknowledge Him as Yeshua the Messiah. The Son, called Yeshua (Jesus), meaning salvation, came to this world born of a virgin (Isa. 7:14 (cf. Luke 1:30-35).
The Son is God (Deity), and is worshipped as God, having existed eternally (Ps. 110:1; Heb. 1:13); Isa. 9:6-7; Matt. 28:18-20; Phil. 2:5-11; Col. 1:15-19; Rev. 3:21 (Heb. 1 – worshiped by angels); Rev. 4:8, 5:5-14).
This One is the promised Mashiach (Messiah) of Israel (Is. 9:6-7; 11:1; Dan. 9 (esp. verses 20-26); Isa. 53; John 1:17, 40-41, 45, 49; Mark 8:29).
He is the root and offspring of David, the bright and morning star (Num. 24:17; Rev. 22:16).
He is our Passover, the Lamb of God (I Cor. 5:7; Rev. 5; John 1:29).
God the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh)
In the Tenach, (Gen. 1:2b) the Spirit of God came upon individuals during the times of our forefathers, like Moses, David (II Sam. 23:1-3), and the Prophets, for the specific purposes.
In the New Testament, the Messiah, Yeshua, promised His disciples that “the Comforter” would come to them after He was gone, described as the Spirit of Truth (John 14:17, 26), who was with them and would be in them. Yeshua further declared that the Spirit of Truth, would guide us into all truth and would glorify Him – the Messiah – not Himself (John 16:13-15). He empowers us (Acts 1:8). He seals us (Eph. 1:13; 4:30 (see Jewish New Testament version). If we have not the Spirit, we are not His (Rom. 8:9). He leads us and teaches us (Rom. 8:14-17). His indwelling enables us to live a godly life. Acts 2:38 says, “Repent, be immersed, and receive the Holy Spirit.”
