We believe in one God, as He has revealed Himself in the Scriptures. "Hear O Israel, the Lord our God is one."
Deuteronomy 6:4 We believe that the intended meaning of this word "one" is found in the original Hebrew
text, which used the word "echad" and it means "a composite unity".
We believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Son of God, the Messiah (the Christ), the Eternal One in Whom all the
fullness of deity dwells in bodily form, and who is the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us, and whose
glory we beheld, the glory of the uniquely begotten Son of God, full of grace and truth.
We believe that the Spirit of God comforts, teaches, leads, indwells and empowers all whom He regenerates.
We believe that the Bible, both the Tanakh (Old Testament) and the Brit Hadasha (New Covenant), is the only
inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God. (II Timothy 3:16-17)
We believe that all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23)
We believe that Yeshua's death and resurrection accomplished the atonement for all who would place their faith
in Him. Whoever trusts in God, in His work alone, is made a new creation in Messiah, indwelt by the Spirit of
God, and is transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of His own Son. (Ephesians 2:8-9;
Romans 5 & 6)
We believe in the continuity of God's covenants with the physical people of Israel according to Jeremiah 31:35
-36 and parallel passages. Part of the fulfillment of these covenants is the physical return of the people of Israel
to their Promised Land (Deuteronomy 30)
We believe salvation is 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 in the spiritual unity and equality of all believers in Messiah Yeshua. (Ephesians 2:11-22)
We believe that everyone who trusts in Yeshua is grafted into the "olive tree", and while this does not make
them Jewish, they are granted the privilege of having written upon their hearts, as participants of the New
Covenant, God's laws. (Romans 11:11-24; Jeremiah 31:33)
We believe that the entire Bible is a revelation of the righteousness of God and the description of the lifestyle of
the redeemed community. (Matthew 5:17-19; II Timothy 3:16-17)
We believe in the literal, physical return of Messiah to rule and reign upon the throne of David in Jerusalem.
