We believe that there is only one true God, YHVH, who is the eternal King, Creator, and Redeemer of all that is. YHVH is perfectly holy, righteous, just, loving, and truthful. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self-existent – one being, God, in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Bible (from Genesis to Revelation) is the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. The Bible consists of the Hebrew Scriptures called the Tanakh (Torah, Prophets, & Writings) & the Apostolic Scriptures or Scriptures of the Apostles of Yeshua. These Scriptures make up the complete God-breathed canon, forming God’s self-revelation to mankind and the basis of discerning all truth, faith, and practice within the community of faith.
We believe that humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him forever, yet willfully sinned, rejecting the Lordship and glory of God for which humanity was created. Because of this, sickness, death, and judgment entered the world, and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.
We believe in the Lord Yeshua the Messiah (also known as the Lord Jesus Christ in English). Yeshua is the one and only Son of God and long awaited Messiah of Israel, who was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Miriam (or Mary), lived a sinless life under God’s Law, was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected on the 3rd day, ascended to Heaven, and is now alive, ruling and reigning at the right hand of the Father, having all power and authority in heaven and earth, and under the earth, in this age and the age to come.
We believe and affirm Ephesians 2:8–10 (NASB95), “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; 9 not as a result of works, so that no one may boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.”
We believe that anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repentance (turning from sin to God), confessing their sin, and pledging total allegiance and fidelity to Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah as their Lord and Savior.
We believe that The Holy Spirit convicts, regenerates, justifies, sanctifies, seals, adopts, and empowers believers as they enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters in Christ Jesus. We also believe in the ongoing, sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, who indwells the believer and through the Baptism of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38, Matt 3:11, Lk 3:16 etc.) promised by Yeshua (Jesus), allows the believer to receive specific power to walk in freedom from sin’s bondages, live holy, righteous lives, operate in the gifts of the Spirit as the Lord Himself provides and wills, provide deliverance to captives, and be faithful witnesses of the Good News of Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus the Christ).
We believe that the “Church” consists of all who put their faith in Messiah Yeshua (Christ Jesus). The Church exists to carry on the ministry of Messiah Yeshua in the earth and further advance His kingdom and His inheritance of souls, carrying out the Great Commission, preaching, teaching, and ministering God’s power and authority over sin, death, and the devil, while living out the fullness of the Good News of God’s loving redemptive work, discipling (i.e. educating) the nations and future generations – baptizing them in the Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, teaching them to do all that God commanded in His Word.
We believe in the ever-increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which results in the resurrection from the dead for all who are in Messiah at the glorious, visible return of the Lord Yeshua at His Second Coming to rule and reign bodily with His overcoming bride – the Church.
We believe in the literal final “Day of the Lord” in which all humanity will be judged of God. Those found in Messiah, who are part of the first resurrection, will go on to everlasting life (Rev 20:5-6), and those still “dead,” who are not in Christ, will be raised also to experience the second death and everlasting judgment in the lake of fire (Rev 20:14, 21:8).
