What We Believe
Bibliology (Study of the Bible)
The sole basis of our beliefs is the Bible; (God's infallible written Word). We believe the 66 books of the TaNaK and Apostolic Scriptures combined which make up the canon of scripture are inspired or God-breathed. We believe that it was uniquely, verbally and fully inspired by the Holy Spirit and that it was written without error (inerrant) in the original manuscripts. (PSALM 18:30; 2TIM 3:16) The Bible is supreme and or final authority in all matters on which it speaks.
Theology Proper (Study of the doctrine of God)
We believe that God ”Elohim” (the Father, Son and Spirit) exist eternally, (PSALM 90:2). We believe YHVH is sovereign. We believe He is absolute justice. We believe He is omniscient or all knowing. (PSALM 44:21; 139:2-4; ROM 11:34) We believe that He is omnipotent or all powerful. (GEN 18:14; JOB 38-39) We believe He is omnipresent. (PSALM 139:7-8; REV 1:8; 22:13) We believe He is truth. (EX 34:6; NUM 23:29; PSALM 25:10; 89:14) We believe He is immutable or unchangeable. (PSALM 102:26-27)
Christology (Study of Yeshua ‘Jesus’)
We also believe the aforementioned attributes to the Son of God, Yeshua Hamashiach (Jesus Christ). In addition, we believe by His unique position as the God-man (PHIL 2:5-8) and by nature of His virgin birth (MATT 1:23) that He was an acceptable sacrifice to both God and mankind. (1TIM 2:5) We believe by His shed blood He justified the unrighteous, (ROM 5:9) redeemed the slaves of sin, (EPH 1:7; 1PET 1:18-19) propitiated the wrath of the Father, (ROM 3:25; 1JOHN 2:2, 4:10) reconciled mankind to face God, (ROM 5:10; COL 1:1).
Pneumatology (Study of Rauch Kodesh ‘Holy Spirit’)
The Holy Spirit is a member of the Godhead, and He is co-equal with the Father and the Son. (MATT 28:19; ACTS 5:3-4; 1COR 2:11-12; PSALM 139:7; JOB 33:4; ROM 8:2) We believe the Holy Spirit participated in the creation of the universe. (GEN 1:2; JOB 26:13; PSALM 147:14-18) We believe the Holy Spirit inspired the authors of the Bible and thus, (2PET 1:21; 2TIM 3:16) We believe The Holy Spirit sanctifies the believer to Torah living. (2THESS 2:13)
Anthropology (Study of humanity) / Soteriology (Study of Salvation)
The problem is sin and since Gods Perfection and Justice cannot allow sin to go unpunished. We believe the penalty for sin is spiritual death (EPH 5:1) and physical death (GEN 5:5) We believe Yeshua removed the penalty of sin by His death on the cross, being spiritually separated at the point of His death from the Father and Holy Spirit. We believe this act of expiation paid the price needed to satisfy God's wrath against sin. (MATT 27:46; JOHN 19:30; COL 2:14) By the act of being born-again, our old sin nature is now dominated by a new nature. We believe our old nature will not be removed until we are resurrected. (1COR 15:42-43)
Israelology (Study of Israel)
Israel began with one man; Jacob. God made several covenants with Abraham and his descendants. God's redemption of Israel as told in the Exodus shows his faithfulness to his covenant people. God sent the House of Israel into captivity to Assyria, where they temporarily lost their national identity. However, the Biblical prophets continued to prophesy about their actions and future restoration. The House of Judah went into captivity for 70 years in Babylon, after which a remnant of them returned to Judea first through Ezra and finally Nehemiah. Each House with the Gentiles will be restored in a new covenant in the future kingdom of Messiah.
Ecclesiology (Study of the Ekklesia ‘assembly’)
We believe the primary purpose of the local assembly is to mature those who are saved for service and the building up of the Body of Messiah in Torah living. (EPH 4:12) This is to be done by the leadership in the assembly working together in harmony through the gifts given by the providence of Yeshua, working through the Holy Spirit. (1COR 12:11) These leadership gifts include apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers. (EPH 4:11; 1COR 12:28)
Eschatology (Study of End Times)
We believe every person on the face of the earth has an appointment with God. (HEB 9:27) You may have your appointment at the cross (1THESS 5:9) or you may have an appointment with God (REV 20:11) at the Great White Throne. Yeshua will return as King of Kings to setup His kingdom on Earth as it is in Heaven for a thousand year reign. Believing Israel is adorn and becomes the married bride of Yeshua. (REV 19&20)
