The following information expresses our core principles and beliefs that we uphold at our assembly:
We believe that all Scripture, both the Old Testament (Tanakh) and the New Testament (B’ri Chadasha), is the divinely inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of YHVH our Elohim.
“All Scripture is inspired by Elohim and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; that the man of Yah may be adequately equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16
One God Who is Echad
We believe that YHVH is One. We understand this “one” to be a composite unity as defined by the Hebrew word, echad. We understand that finite man cannot comprehend the infinite Elohim (God). We understand that YHVH chose to reveal Himself to mankind in at least three manifestations, Father (YHVH), His Son (Yeshua/Jesus), and His Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh).
“Hear O Israel! YHVH is our Elohim, YHVH is One!” Deuteronomy 6:4
We believe in the deity of Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth who was conceived by the Spirit in the virgin Miriam (Mary). He is the Messiah of Israel, the Savior of the world, the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. He is the ultimate and final Passover Lamb required for the forgiveness and removal of our sins. He was crucified and rose from the dead three days and three nights later. Everyone who repents of their sins and trusts that Yeshua (Jesus) is Messiah, who died and rose again, is forgiven their sins and enters into the renewed covenant with YHVH through Yeshua’s (Jesus’) blood sacrifice. We therefore become inheritors of all the promises and covenants of YHVH (Romans 10:9-11; 1 Corinthians 5:7).
We understand that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of Elohim (God) and need atonement and reconciliation to YHVH.
(Romans 3:23). Salvation is a free gift of YHVH and cannot be earned by keeping the commandments. We keep the commandments (Torah) because we have been redeemed and desire to walk as Yeshua (Jesus) walked (1 John 2). Salvation comes through repentance and confession of sin. This results in spiritual regeneration.
We believe in water immersion of believers (Mikveh), as commanded by the Scriptures, as an outward sign of an inward salvation experience, symbolizing the death of the old man and the resurrection unto newness of life.
(Matthew 3:16, 28:18-20).
