Statement of Faith
In the one and only living God — the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob — the Creator of heaven and earth.
(Gen. 1:1; Isa. 42:5)
Yeshua (Hebrew for "Jesus") is Israel's promised Messiah and the Redeemer of the entire human race. By His life, death and resurrection, He fulfilled the messianic prophecies of the Old Covenant Scriptures related to Messiah's first coming. The divine Messiah, Yeshua is the fullest revelation of God to man.
(Isa. 7:14, 9:6-7, 49:6, 53:1-12; Psa. 16:9-11)
We believe in the triune nature of God — God the Father, God the Son (Yeshua), and God the Holy Spirit. God made man in His own image and endowed him with a longing for intimate fellowship with the Creator.
(Gen. 1:26, 2:7; Psa. 41:1-2)
Man's disobedience to God's revealed will caused a separation between man and God.
(Gen. 2:16-17; Isa. 59:1-2)
The only provision God made for reconciling man to Himself was through the atoning work of the Messiah, who died as the sacrifice for our disobedience and rose again, manifesting His victory over sin and death.
(Lev. 17:11; Isa. 53:1-12; 2 Cor. 5:19)
The Bible — both the Old and New Covenant Scriptures — is God's Word to man and the only reliable, safe guide to faith and conduct.
(Num. 12:6-8; Isa. 8:20; 2 Tim. 3:16-17)
All who repent from sin and accept God's message of salvation in the Messiah are born again of the Spirit of God. Faith in the Messiah as the mediator of the New Covenant makes us true children of God.
(Jer. 31:31-34; Ezek. 36:24-27; John 1:11-13)
The Holy Spirit indwells the heart of every born again believer. The baptism of the Spirit for anointed service is the positional right of every believer, but is appropriated as a faith experience distinct from the born again experience.
(Acts 8:15-17, 10:44-46, 19:1-6)
All of the gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit are intended for the body of believers during this age.
(1 Cor. 12:4-11)
The atonement in Yeshua includes both spiritual and physical healing. The blessings of obedience promised to Israel in the Mosaic Covenant are available to any believer under the New Covenant today.
(1 Pet. 2:24; Isa. 53:5; Psa. 103:3)
Those who are born of the Holy Spirit become members of the universal people of God, the Body of the Messiah. This one spiritual fellowship through the Messiah includes both Jews and Gentiles as equal members of this Body — One New Man in Yeshua.
(1 Cor. 12:12-13, 27; Eph. 2:14-16, 5:30-32)
The nation Israel is chosen by God to be a channel of blessing to all the nations on earth. The return of the Jewish people to their land is in fulfillment of biblical prophecy. The day will come when Israel as a nation will accept Messiah Yeshua. Then shall the Word of God go forth from Zion. After Messiah Yeshua returns, He shall establish His worldwide rule from Jerusalem.
(Gen. 12:1-3; Isa. 11; Zech. 12:10, 13:1)
