  • The foundation of all subsequent Scripture is the Torah – the first five books of the Bible.
  • God is One, and He alone is Creator, Lord, Savior and King. “Hear, O Israel, the LORD our God is one LORD.” (Deuteronomy 6:4)
  • God and His Word are eternal.
  • The Shabbat is the created holy day of the LORD, and it is to be protected and kept holy.
  • Yeshua of Nazareth is the Messiah of Israel and through Him alone salvation is provided. As the Passover Lamb of God, Messiah Yeshua takes away the sins of the world. He died, arose on the third day, ascended to Heaven, and will return in days to come.
  • Through Messiah alone the Gentiles are grafted into the commonwealth of Israel and are full participants in Israel’s Scriptures, covenants, and promises.
  • The people of the LORD are a holy congregation gathered to celebrate Him on the Sabbath and at His appointed times throughout the year.
  • Our goals as the people of God are to be followers of Yeshua the Messiah, to be holy unto God our Father, to live righteous and godly lives in this world, to be equally clean in our conscious inner man and in our walk, and to be full of love for one another.
  • We trust in God Who promises to resurrect the dead to life in His eternal kingdom.
  • God will judge all mankind and will dispense both reward and punishment in perfect wisdom and justice.
  • This Statement of Faith is not perfect because it is the product of imperfect people who are striving to mature in their knowledge of the Perfect One and understanding of His holy Word.
