We believe that Elohim’s (God’s) teaching and instructions (Torah) are from Genesis 1:1 to Revelation 22:21, and in the relevance of all scripture, one holistic book under one cover, not two under one cover.
We believe and are committed to having His commandments (teachings and instructions) written in our hearts by His Holy Spirit. (Jeremiah 31:31-33) The plum line that measures the effectiveness of our walk is whether we love Elohim (God) and man. Mathew 22:37-40.
We believe the ultimate vision of scripture is the “Restoration of All Things” (Acts 3:19-21) including the Kingdom back to Israel (Acts 1:6). This vision will be accomplished through the redemptive work of Messiah Yeshua.
We believe that we are part of the commonwealth or family of Israel made up of Judah (the Jewish side of the family, or the natural olive branches) and Joseph or Ephraim (the non-Jewish side of the family, the wild olive branches) and their companions, and their end time future restoration and return back to the land of Israel, promised to Abraham and his children of promise.
We honor His Torah which includes the 7th day Sabbath, His food instructions, His yearly festivals, and a Torah focused home. We believe that His teachings and instructions are eternal, and in keeping them we demonstrate faithfulness to His Covenant of which we are part, but not to earn our salvaion or justification Ephesians 2:8-9.
We believe that a person must repent (teshuvah), and confess belief in the Messiah, Yeshua, the Holy One of Israel, followed by immersion (mikvah) in His Name [authority] as a public declaration of becoming a disciple of Yeshua by walking out our salvation in His Torah (John 3:3; Acts 2:36-47).
We believe in a second baptism, that of being baptised into the Ruach HaKodesh, the Holy Spirit, so that we are properly equipped to discern truth, and apply His Torah per His direction as opposed to religion or tradition. (Luke 3:16; Acts 19:4-5)
