About Us...

   

 

     
 

Who We Are

 

We are Jews and non-Jews who believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the promised messiah spoken of by the prophets in the Hebrew Scriptures

 

We uphold all of the Bible which includes the Older and the Newer Testaments.  

 

As messianic believers, we support the on-going existence and vitality of Jews worldwide, while proclaiming Godís message of love and redemption. 

 

We believe in Godís continual covenants found in the Scriptures, and therefore support the people of Israel in ways that bless them and glorify God.

 

Having said that, we believe that all mankind is created in God's image. We uphold the value and worth of every human being, and denounce acts of hatred.

 

We support the nation of Israel although we do not always agree with or support the political policies of that country.

 

And we are concerned with the welfare of our Arab cousins to whom God has promised blessings as well, along with all the nations of the world (Genesis 12:1-3).

  About Messianic Judaism

Messianic Judaism is a prophetic movement of God and an expression of the New Covenant spoken of in Jeremiah 31 and Hebrews 10.  It is an expression of Messianic Jewish faith and practice, built upon the basic truth that God has established an everlasting covenant with Abraham that has been ratified through the promised Messiah of Israel, Yeshua.  It is through this covenant that God desires to bring revival to Israel and the nations through knowledge of Yeshua the Messiah.

 

We affirm the importance and value of messianic congregations and fellowships as a witness to both the Jewish and non-Jewish communities, showing the harmony of Jewish and non-Jewish believers in Yeshua the Messiah.  We instill in our children and families a love for God and His Word, passing our spiritual heritage to our children.  We express our love for God and one another, respecting the worth of every individual, while upholding the principles taught in the Holy Scriptures.

  A Brief Summary of Messianic Beliefs

 

We believe the Bible is the inspired and authoritative Word of God.

 

We believe that God is One, manifested in the persons of the Father, the Son (Proverbs 30:4-6), and the Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:1-2) as revealed in the Scriptures.

 

We believe that God created the heavens and the earth and formed mankind in His image.

 

We believe that God established his covenants of redemption with the patriarchs as a promise and inheritance for every generation to receive.

 

We believe in the deity of the Yeshua, the Messiah, in his virgin birth, in his sinless life, in his miracles, in his atoning death through his shed blood as a final sacrifice for mankind's sin.

 

We believe in the bodily resurrection of Yeshua, in his ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in his personal return to Jerusalem in power and glory.

 

We believe in repentance and trust in Messiah Yeshua for the forgiveness of sin.

 

We believe that regeneration by the Holy Spirit enables believers to live godly and fruitful lives.

 

We believe in the resurrection of life for the righteous and the resurrection of wicked for judgment.

 

We believe in the spiritual unity of all believers in Yeshua, who was and is the Jewish Messiah.

 

We believe that Jewish followers of Yeshua are called to maintain their Jewish heritage and identity, as a remnant of Israel who live by faith in the Messiah. This is part of their witness to the faithfulness of God concerning Israel.

 

We believe that non-Jewish believers in Messiah are grafted into the Jewish olive tree (Romans 11 & Ephesians 2) and are encouraged to understand and appreciate the Jewish roots of their faith. They are not obligated to live as Jews, but are encouraged to support Jewish believers and the interests of world Jewry.
