What We Believe 

The following is our statement of faith in the form of a story as told through the Bible in chronological order.


There is one God, who has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Every divine action in the world is accomplished by the Father working through the Son and in the power of the Spirit. This God has revealed Himself in creation and in the history of Israel through the Scriptures (Tanakh and New Testament).
(Gen. 1:1; I Cor. 8:6; Eph. 4:4-6)


Through free will, human beings disobeyed God, and tarnished the divine image. As a result, all relationships within creation became subject to violence and disorder because of sin.
(Gen. 4:8; 6:5-7; Rom. 8:20-22)


God chose Israel, the Jewish people, and entered into an everlasting covenant with them so they might be a light to the Gentiles. In gracious love, God gave to Israel the holy Torah as a covenantal way of life, and the holy Land of Israel as an inheritance and pledge of the blessing of the World to Come.
(Gen. 12:1-3; Jer. 31:34-37; Rom. 11:28-29)


Two thousand years ago the Divine Son became a human being—Yeshua the Messiah. He was born of a Jewish virgin, a true and perfect Israelite, a fitting representative and one-man embodiment of the entire nation. He lived without sin, fulfilling without blemish the commandments of the Torah. He is humanity perfected, the human expression of the divine image.
(Isa. 7:14; John 1:14; Gal. 4:4; Heb. 1:1-4; 4:15)

Yeshua died as an atonement for the sins of Israel and of the entire world during Passover. He was raised bodily from the dead, he appeared resurrected to his dicsiples during the forty day of Omer, He ascended to heaven and was there enthroned at God’s right hand as Israel’s Messiah. He commanded His disciples to preach the Gospel in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and to the ends of the earth.
(Isa. 53:4-6; Ps. 110:1; Matt. 28:18; Mk. 14:61-62; Acts 1:8; I Cor. 15:3-8; Phil. 2-9-11)


God poured out the Holy Spirit on Jewish followers of Yeshua on the day of Shavuot in Acts 2. To this early Jewish community God added partners from among the Gentiles twenty years later in beginning in Acts 13 through the apostle Paul. The Holy Spirity is available to everyone who calls on the Name of Yeshua.
(Isa. 66:20-21; Acts 2:1-21; 10:44-48; 15:8-9; Eph.1:13; 2:11-22)


The Bible is God’s gift to Israel. The Torah serves as the constitution of the Jewish people. The Torah also provides universal norms of behavior and practical life teaching for both Jews and Gentiles.  The entire Bible (Tanakh and New Testament) is divinely inspired and fully trustworthy (true), a gift given by God to His people, provided to impart life and to form, nurture, and guide them in the ways of truth. It is of supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
(II Tim. 3:16, 17; II Pet. 1:19-21; Matt. 5:17-20; II Tim.3:16-17; I Cor. 7:17-20)


Forgiveness of sins, union with Messiah, the empowering and sanctifying presence of the indwelling Holy Spirit, and the confident hope of eternal life and a glorious resurrection are now available to all, Jews and Gentiles, who put their faith in Yeshua. He is the Mediator between God and all creation, and no one can come to the Father except through Him.
(Matt. 28:19-20; Lk. 24:46-48; Jn. 14:6; Rom. 6:22-23; I Cor. 11:23-27)


Messiah Yeshua will return to Jerusalem in glory at the end of this age, to rule forever on David’s throne. He will bring the restoration of Israel in fullness, raise the dead, save all who belong to Him, judge the wicked not written in the Book of Life who are separated from His presence, and accomplish the final Tikkun Olam (healing of the world) in which Israel and the nations will be united under Messiah’s rule forever. This restoration will bring everlasting joy for those who belong to Him. They will live forever in an order of mutual blessing and fellowship with God.
(Isa. 9:4-6; Rom. 8:18-19; Rev. 20:11-15; 21:1-4)
