What We Believe . . .
- We believe the Bible is the only inspired, infallible and authoritative word of God. (1 Thessalonians 2:13; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21)
- We believe in one God as He has revealed Himself in the Holy Scriptures. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Mark 12:29)
- We believe Jesus/Yeshua is the Son of God; the Messiah; the Eternal One in whom all the fullness of deity dwells in bodily form; the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us; and we beheld His glory, the glory of the uniquely Begotten Son of God, full of grace and truth. (John 1:1-14; Colossians 2:9)
- We believe in the deity of Jesus/Yeshua and His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, 9:6; Matthew 1:18-25), in His atoning death through His shed blood (Isaiah 53; Daniel 9:24-27; Romans 3:21-31; Hebrews 9:10), in His bodily resurrection (Zechariah 12:10; Matthew 28), and in His personal return in power and glory (Daniel 7:9-14; Matthew 26:57-64; Revelation 1:1-18).
- We believe Jesus/Yeshua is the Way, the Truth and the Life; and that no one comes to the Father except through Him (John 14:6, 6:29, 40, 44; 1 John 5:11).
- We believe if you confess with your mouth Jesus/Yeshua as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved (Romans 10:9-10).
- We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a gift from God, promised by Yeshua, to all believers and is received in conjunction with salvation (Matthew 3:11; John 14:16-17; Luke 24:49).
- We believe that Jewish and non-Jewish people who trust in Jesus/Yeshua are grafted into the olive tree of Israel (Romans 11:11-26).
- We believe in keeping and honoring the Sabbath because it is the fourth commandment (Genesis 2:2-3; Exodus 20:4; Acts 13:14, 27, 42). The Sabbath begins in the evening on Friday and ends in the evening on Saturday.
- We believe in celebrating the feasts of the Lord (Leviticus 23:1-44). Jesus/Yeshua was crucified at the Feast of Passover during unleavened bread and was triumphantly resurrected on the third day. Following the Sabbath day was the Feast of First Fruits and Jesus/Yeshua showed Himself to many people after His resurrection (Leviticus 23:10-11; Matthew 28:1; Mark 16:9; 1 Corinthians 15:6, 20). Our Father has set times on His calendar with His feasts. Through these feast days, we can know the seasons He has chosen. Scripture also tells us that the feasts are a shadow of things to come and the fulfillment can be found in Jesus/Yeshua (Colossians 2:16-17).
It is our firm belief that the Torah points to the Messiah Yeshua/Jesus in all things, and that Yeshua/Jesus did not do away with the Torah, but rather constantly pointed His followers back to the loving teaching and instruction that the Torah provides.
