Statement of Faith

1. We believe the Bible (both Old and New Covenants) to be the divinely inspired Word of G-d; it is our source and final authority. (2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Peter 1:23-25; Hebrews 4:12)

2. We believe the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to be the one and only living and true G-d. He is an eternal tri-unity of three co-equal and divine personalities: G-d the Father, G-d the Son, G-d the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit). He is the Creator of heaven and earth. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Genesis 1:1; Matthew 3:16-17)

3. We believe Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah) to be the only begotten Son of G-d who became G-d incarnate. He was both fully G-d and fully man, conceived by the Ruach HaKodesh and born of the Jewish virgin, Miriam. (1 John 4:9; Matthew 1:20-23; Luke 1:27-32)

4. We believe Yeshua, by virtue of His miraculous birth and sinless life, voluntarily gave Himself as the perfect atoning sacrifice for the sins of Israel and all mankind, and by His vicarious death, made it possible for all to be reconciled to G-d. (Romans 5:8; Galatians 1:4; Hebrews 9:26)

5. We believe after His death on the tree, the L-rd Yeshua, on the third day, rose from the dead and ascended into heaven, where He is seated at the right hand of the Father, as our Intercessor and Advocate, the only mediator between G-d and man. (2 Corinthians 5:15; Matthew 28; Mark 16; Luke 24)

6. We believe the L-rd Yeshua will soon descend from heaven to gather (rapture) the true believers (those who have accepted Yeshua as the Messiah) unto Himself. (1 Thessalonians 4; Revelation 20:6)

7. We believe that as the Bible and Torah states, atonement for sins can come only through a blood atonement (Leviticus 17:11). We believe all men are sinners by nature and in need of salvation, which can only be accomplished by confession in the Messiah, by G-d’s grace and through His atoning blood, death and resurrection. (Romans 3:23-25; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Peter 1:18-19)

8. We believe that every follower of Yeshua should seek the infilling (baptism) of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) as a definite and distinct experience, that they might be endued with power for the Messiah’s service. However, this is not a prerequisite for salvation. (Acts 1:4-5 & 8; Acts 2:1-18 & 38-39)

9. We believe disunity with others in the congregation is detrimental and must be handled according to Scripture, with the final decision left to the spiritual leader and board. (Proverbs 6:16-19; Mathew 18:15-18)

10. We believe in tithing and love offerings to support the work of G-d. One-tenth is the measure of one’s tithe. (Leviticus 27; Malachi 3:10; Luke 6:38).

11. We believe in a literal heaven and hell. (2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21:1-2; Psalm 9:17; Matthew 10:28).

12. We believe in the following observances:

  • Water Immersion (Romans 6:3-4; Matthew 28:19)
  • Communion (Luke 22:19; 1 Corinthians 11:26)
  • Dedication of Children (1 Samuel 1:26-28; Mark 10:15-16)
  • Matrimony (Matthew 19:4-6; Ephesians 5:31)
  • Anointing with Oil (Exodus 30:25; James 5:14)
  • Laying on of Hands (Acts 6:6; Hebrews 6:1-2
