Statement of Faith

  • We believe in one God, as he has revealed himself in the Scriptures (Deuteronomy 6:4) and the divine Trinity. (John 12:27, 28, 49, 50)
  • We believe in God the Father. (John 12:27)
  • We believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Son of God, the Messiah, the Eternal One. He is the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth. (John 1:1–14; Colossians 2:9)
  • We believe that the Spirit of God comforts, teaches, leads, indwells and empowers all whom God regenerates. (Acts 9:31; 1 John 2:27; John 16:13; 1 Corinthians 3:16; 2 Timothy 1:7)
  • We believe that the Bible, composed of both the Tanakh (Old Testament) and the Apostolic Scriptures (New Testament), is the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16–17)
  • We believe that the Bible is a revelation of the righteousness of God and guides all to a life of living as a description of the redeemed community. (Matthew 5:17–19; 2 Timothy 3:16–17)
  • We believe that all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
  • We believe Yeshua’s death and resurrection atoned for all who place their faith in him. Whoever trusts in God, in his work alone, is made a new creation in Yeshua, indwelt by the Spirit of God, and is transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the Kingdom of God. (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 believe that God’s grace and mercy call us to works of love and service to others as a response to God’s love (James 2:18, 1 Peter 4:10-11, Galatians 5:13-14).
  • We believe in the spiritual unity and equality of all believers in Yeshua the Messiah. (Ephesians 2:11–22)
  • We believe in the continuity of God’s covenants with the Jewish people, the physical people of Israel (Jeremiah 31:35–36 and Deuteronomy 30), and that we are grafted into these covenants through faith in Yeshua (Romans 11:11-31).
  • 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 in the literal, physical return of Messiah to rule and reign upon the throne of David in Jerusalem. (Zechariah 14; Revelation 19–20)
