Statement of  Faith We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that the whole Word should be lived out as Yahweh’s instruction manual. The 66 books of the Bible, although chosen by men, were inspired by YHVH. They are 100% accurate in their purest, original language and form.  The Scriptures are the final authority on all doctrine and all matters of which it speaks. We believe that Yahweh is the one true God, the Creator of all things, who is infinitely perfect and eternally echad (as one): the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. (Deut. 6:4) We believe through His Word, He created the universe in six literal days (John1:3).  His Word would later be revealed as His Son, Yeshua (Jesus). “Yeshua” is the Messiah’s Hebrew name; it means “salvation”.    We believe The “Word” that God spoke in Genesis to create the universe was the same Word that was sent in John 1:1 to become flesh. This “Word” that dwelt among us is “Yeshua.”  We believe that Yeshua, (Jesus) is the Son of God.  He is the Living Word of God that became flesh, born of a virgin.  He was crucified and was buried.  on the third day, He rose from the dead and later ascended into heaven. Yeshua is the prophesied Messiah of the Old Testament, the Son of God, Creator of Heaven and earth, the manifest presence of Yawheh.  (Is 44:6, Rev 22:13). We believe that the Torah (instruction) of Yahweh has not been abolished, and the observance of it is still the valid expression of a godly faith; not as a means of salvation, but as the God given path of sanctification. The written Torah given to Moshe (Moses) is the same Torah that Messiah Yeshua has taught us to observe.  We are taught not only to observe it, but to also make disciples in the name of Yeshua The Messiah and to teach them to live Torah pursuant lives (Matt. 5:16-19).  Yeshua said, “If you love me, you will keep my commands.” (John 14:15, 1 John 2:3-6) We believe that from Creation to Mount Sinai, the people of the Earth were offending Yahweh (God) so much by sinning – breaking all the laws and instructions that He gave them orally – that He sent them His Word and Instructions (His Law) in written form for the purpose of helping them clearly understand the difference between right and wrong and creating patterns in their life that would bring blessings and connection with Him. (Gal 3:19). We believe we are saved by grace through faith in Yeshua.  Salvation is a free gift of God to man, separate from the works of the law. in order to be saved one must first understand that he has broken God's perfect law and is condemned because of his sin to eternal destruction away from the presence of Almighty God (Duet 11:28, Rom 6:23). He must then accept the blood of Yeshua/Jesus over the door posts of his heart and believe that outside the death, burial, and resurrection of Yeshua there is no way for salvation. We believe that Believers are part of Israel, both natural and wild branches grafted into Israel by the blood of Messiah (Romans 11), joint-heirs of the promise, and members of the Commonwealth of Israel. (Ephesians 2:11), having the Torah written upon their hearts and minds according to the New Covenant. (Romans 11:11-24; Jeremiah 31:31-34; Hebrews 8:8-12) We believe that The Holy Spirit is God and is fully released in our lives by the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which happens after salvation and is the gift Yahweh promised by Yeshua to all believers. (Ezekiel 36.25; Matthew 3:11; Luke 24:49; John 14:16-17: Acts 2:38-39)  We believe and embrace the ministry, operation, and all the gifts of the Holy Sprit as described in the Scriptures. (Acts 19:1-7; 1 Corinthians 12:1-11) The gifts of the Spirit were in existence in the past and are still active today: word of wisdom, word of knowledge, faith, the gifts of healing, the working of miracles, prophecy, discerning of spirits, [divers] kinds of tongues, and the interpretation of tongues. We believe in divine healing - the restoration of health to those who believe and act on the truths written in God’s Word. We believe that the 7th day, is Sabbath, and should be set apart as the 4th commandment is written. We believe in keeping the Feasts of Yahweh because they demonstrate the divine nature of Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) and are prophetic shadowpictures of things to come. We believe that at the point of conversion it is the responsibility of the believer to submit himself to the teachings of his new “Rabbi Yeshua,” to be baptized (immersed) into His name, and to follow Him all the days of His life (Luke 9:23, 1 Cor 9:24). We believe this is best done by surrounding oneself with a community of believers that have the same passion to be more like Him daily. Being in a local community of believers is critical for spiritual growth, accountability, and the maturity of spiritual gifts within the body.  We believe that through His death, Yeshua took over the High priesthood, and because of His perfect blood sacrifice, His Father would be forever satisfied and man would now always have the ability to come into the presence of Almighty Yahweh (Heb 9:11-12) through the blood of the Lamb. We believe that someday, our Messiah will come back to Earth to redeem all those that are His, those that have been grafted into the commonwealth of Israel (Rom 11, Eph 2). Then He will reign from the New Jerusalem for 1000 years (1 Thes 3:13, Rev 20:4). We believe in hell and eternal retribution.  Each individual’s relationship with Yeshua will determine where he or she will spend eternity. We believe that the mission of the Church exists to train and equip the believer to carry on the works of Yeshua (Jesus).    We believe that the method ordained of God to sustain His ministry and the spread of the Gospel is through tithes and offerings.
