Statement of Belief

  • We believe in One God, that God is One, as revealed in the Scriptures. “Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One.” (Deuteronomy 6:4, Mark 12:29);
  • We believe that Yeshua (Jesus of Nazareth) was, and is, Israel’s promised Messiah, the only begotten Son of God and the Saviour of Mankind – “the Word [who] became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:14). “He lived as a holy tzaddik fulfilling without blemish the mitzvot of the Torah. He brings to perfection the human expression of the divine image”. (Isaiah 7:14; John 1:14; Gal. 4:4; Hebrews 1:1-4; 4:15);
  • We believe that the Spirit of God (Ruach Elohim) comforts, teaches, leads, indwells and empowers all whom God regenerates (i.e. ‘rebirth’ – to be ‘born again’). The Ruach Elohim is the seal and guarantee of the promise of salvation. The Ruach convicts the world of sin, establishes righteousness and judgement (Acts 9:31; 1 John 2:27; John 16:13; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 2 Timothy 1:7);
  • We believe that the Bible, both the Hebrew Bible and the Apostolic Writings, are the only inspired, infallible, inerrant and authoritative Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17). To properly interpret the meaning of the Bible, we must remember that it has a Jewish origin and was written by Jews. This is especially true when reading the Writings of the Apostles (Matthew 5:17-20);
  • We believe that all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23);
  • We believe that Yeshua’s death and resurrection accomplished the atonement for all who place their faith in him. Whoever trusts in God, in his work alone, is made a new creation in Yeshua, in-dwelt by the Spirit of God, and is transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of God (Mark 1:14, Mark 4:11, Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 5, 6);
  • We believe in justification by faith through the grace of God 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 God alone (Ephesians 2:8-10; Romans 8:29-39);
  • We acknowledge that the body of believers is composed of both Jews and Gentiles who have received Yeshua the Messiah as the promised Redeemer (Rom. 10:12-13). The “middle wall of partition” has been broken down and we worship the God of Israel together (Ephesians 2:13- 15, Galatians 3:6).
  • We believe that the land of Israel belongs to God and He gave it to the Jewish people (the physical descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob) to live in and possess (Romans 11:25-29). He has recently returned Israel, as prophetically promised, to this land (Isaiah 11:11-12);
  • We believe in the continuity of God’s covenants with the Jewish people, the physical people of Israel (Jeremiah 31:35-36 and parallel passages);
  • We believe that all non-Jewish people who trust in Yeshua are grafted into Israel. While this does not make them Jewish, they are full and equal participants in the covenants of promise (Ephesians 2:12; Romans 11:11-24; Jeremiah 31:33);
  • We believe that the Torah is a revelation of the righteousness of God and a description (along with the rest of Scripture) of the lifestyle of the redeemed community (Matthew 5:17-19; 2 Timothy
  • We believe in the literal, physical return of Messiah to rule and reign upon the throne of David in Jerusalem (Zechariah 14; Revelation 19-20);
  • We believe in and celebrate God’s Appointed Times (Leviticus 23, Exodus 23)
