Statement of Faith
We believe in יהוה (YHWH), as He revealed Himself in the Scriptures. “Hear, O Yisrael! יהוה our Elohim, יהוה is One!” (Deuteronomy 6:4) We believe that the intended meaning of the word “One” is found in the original Hebrew text, which uses the word “echad”. We believe that Yeshua is the uniquely begotten Son of יהוה, the Messiah, the Eternal One in whom all the fullness of the deity dwells in bodily form, and who is the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us. He is the Son of יהוה, full of grace and truth. We believe that the Spirit of יהוה, the Ru-ach Ha-Ko-desh, comforts, teaches, leads, indwells and empowers those that He renews.
We believe the Scriptures. The Tanakh (Old Testament) and Brit Chadasha (New Covenant), are the living Word of יהוה. We believe that righteousness comes from יהוה, through the faithfulness of Yeshua the Messiah, to all who continue trusting. There is no difference whether one is a Jew or a Gentile since all have sinned and come short of earning יהוה’s praise. By יהוה’s grace and without earning it, all are considered righteous before Him, through the redeeming sacrifice of Messiah Yeshua. (Romans 3:22-24)
We believe that Yeshua’s death and resurrection accomplished the atonement for all who would place their faith in Him. Whoever trusts in יהוה, is made a new creation in Messiah, indwelt by the Spirit of יהוה, and is transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of His own Son. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 5 & 6)
We believe salvation is by faith through the grace of יהוה alone and not by human efforts. One may not earn, merit or keep this eternal salvation by his own efforts. A new creation is the work of יהוה alone. (Ephesians 2:8-10; Romans 8:29-39)
We believe that anyone who trusts in Yeshua is grafted in to the “olive tree.” While this does not make them Jewish, they are granted the privilege of having יהוה’s Torah written upon their hearts, as participants of the New Covenant. (Romans 11:11-24; Jeremiah 31:33)
We believe that the Jews are still and always will be יהוה’s people as they are in the Tanakh.
We honor and celebrate all Feasts/Holy Days of יהוה. We honor and celebrate the Shabbat on the 7th day (Saturday) and maintain kosher dietary laws.
We do not believe or follow Replacement Theology; meaning Yeshua fulfilled the laws so the laws are done away with. ie: changing Sabbath to the 1st day (Sunday) or no longer required to keep the feast of יהוה.
