We are a Messianic Fellowship that believes that Yeshua, called Jesus in the Greek translation, is the Messiah foretold in the Scriptures of the Bible.
Our beliefs are rooted in the Hebrew faith as preserved for us in the ancient writings of the Old Testament and quoted repeatedly by the Disciples and Yeshua Himself.
We recognize that to have a true understanding of the New Testament it is necessary to understand the Old Testament and to do so from a Hebraic perspective.
The Way is and always has been a Hebrew faith and Yeshua a Jewish Messiah.
Yeshua came, not to destroy the Torah but, to fulfill it. He has and He will.
Let us return to the Hebrew roots of our faith and worship our Father in truth.
May He Come Quickly and Bring Peace to Jerusalem.
1. That the Bible, composed of both the Old Covenant (Tanakh) and the Re-New Covenant (Brit Hadasha) is the only infallible and authoritative Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16) That the One True God: the Creator of heaven and earth is the God of Avraham (Abraham), Yitz’chak (Isaac) and Ya’akov (Jacob). (Exodus 3:6)
2. In the Deity of Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus, the Messiah), that He is the "Seed of the Woman" promised by God in Genesis 3:15 and that His virgin birth was to be a sign to Israel of His Messiahship as stated in Isaiah 7:14. (Isaiah 9:6-7).
3. In Messiah's life, His miracles yesterday and today, His vicarious and sacrificial death as our atonement, His bodily resurrection, His appearance thereafter in Jerusalem, His ascension, His personal future establishment of His kingdom on earth. That God the Father sent His Son, Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Jesus the Messiah) to die on the cross to atone for the sins of all mankind. (John 3:16)
4. That the only means of being cleansed from sin through faith and trust in the shed sacrificial blood of Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah) and that regeneration by the Spirit of God is absolutely essential for personal salvation. (Leviticus 17:11, Ephesians 2:8)
5. To the present ministry of the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a godly life. (Ezekiel 36:26-27) That the Ruach Ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit) indwells us as we believe and trust upon the death, burial and resurrection of Yeshua (Jesus) as our Mashiach (Messiah) so that we can be a witness for Him and to live a holy life in Him.
6. In the resurrection of both saved and lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to eternal separation from God, the latter being consigned to the state of everlasting punishment. (Daniel 12:2, Matthew 25:46) That all who receive salvation through the blood atonement of Yeshua (Jesus) will share in the power of His resurrection from the dead and will live eternally in His presence. (Rev 5:9-10)
7. That the New Covenant body of the Lord is composed of both Jews and Gentiles who have accepted Yeshua HaMashiach as the Promised Redeemer, worshipping together in the House of God. (I Corinthians 12:13, Hebrews 10:25, Ephesians 2:12-14) That Yeshua (Jesus) has broken down the middle wall of partition and that all believers Jew and Gentile are one in Him.
8. In the partaking of the communal elements of the matzah (unleavened bread) and the fruit of the vine, as instituted by Yeshua HaMashiach at His last Passover Seder, that the elements are symbolic of the Lord's death and His resurrection. (I Corinthians 11:23-24)
9. In water immersion of believers (Mikvah), as an outward sign of an inward salvation experience, symbolizing the death of the old man and the resurrection unto newness of life. (Matthew 3:16, 28:18-20)
