Principles of our Faith

Our 13 Principles of Faith

1. "All Scripture is given by YHWH, and is to be used for doctrine, for reproof, for correction and for instruction in righteousness". YHWH and His Torah are eternal. His Torah and His Will has always, and will always, be the same. ( 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Shemuel 23:2, PS 119:172, PS 138:2, Yesh. 55:11, Malachi 3:6, Hebrews 13:8, Matthew 5:18; 24:35, 1 Kepha 1:23).

2. Hear, O Yisra’el; YHWH is our Elohim. YHWH is Echad . YHWH is Echad with Messiah Yahshua (Bers. /Gen. 1:26, Deuteronomy 6:4, PS 110:1, Yohn. 1:1, Yohn. 10:30, 2 Cor. 5:19).

3. The Sabbath is the seventh day of the week, and is the created holy day of YHWH, which He gave to mankind and covenanted with His people as a sign forever. ( Exodus 31:16, Genesis 2:2-3, Isaiah 58:13-14, Matthew 12:8).

4. Yahshua of Nazareth is the Messiah of Yisra’el, the Savior of the world. He is Elohim who walked among mankind in the flesh, and now is glorified with all power in Heaven and in Earth, at the right hand of YHWH. The Passover Lamb required for the removal of sins. He died on a stake and rose from the dead three days afterward. Everyone who repents of their sins, and trusts that Yahshua is the Messiah, they are forgiven their sins and come into a new relationship with YHWH through Him, and become inheritors of all the promises Elohim made with Abraham and Yisra’el. (John 1:12-14, Isaiah 53, Romans 10:9-11, 1 Corinthians 5:7).

5. The Brit Chadasha (New Covenant) in Messiah Yahshua brings with it a new creation of the human spirit. The Torah (Instructions/Law/Teaching) of YHWH is being planted inside us by the Ruach HaKodesh (Set-apart Spirit) . An external immersion in water (mikveh/baptism) in Yahshua name declares to the world that this has taken place. (Jeremiah 31:31-34, Ezekiel 39:29, Acts2:38, Eph. 2:10-19).

6. The various gifts of the Ruach HaKodesh are given to all those who ask Yahshua and obey His commandments. The Promise of Abba, an extra enduement of power and boldness for witnessing, is an immersion (spiritual mikveh) by the Ruach HaKodesh. Each follower should seek to be filled with the various gifts of the Ruach, who gives them as He wishes. (Isaiah 28:11-12, Luke 11:13, Acts 1:4-5; 2:4; 5: 32, 1 Cor. 12: 1-13, Eph. 1:13).

7. The promise of a continual, faithful trust in Messiah Yahshua, while walking according to the will of YHWH, is resurrection from the dead, eternal life and ruling with Messiah forever in the place where His Kingdom will rule. He will yet rule in Jerusalem, and finally in New Jerusalem/Zion in the New Creation forever. (Revelation 19-22).

8. Messiah Yahshua will judge all mankind of all acts and words ever committed. He will decide the sentence for punishment, and all those not meeting His standard will be sent away from His presence, into outer darkness and eternal punishment for their sin. (Matthew 25:31-46, Revelation 20).

9. The people of YHWH are a holy Miqra (Called Out/Ekklesia/Congregation) which is not of the world, in order to gather and celebrate Him at His Moadim (Appointed Feasts), and be a Royal Priesthood and a Holy Nation. YHWH has established ONE Torah (instruction/law/ teachings) , ONE people, and ONE nation (1 Kepha 2:9-11, Eph. 2:10-19).

10. We understand that Yisra’el is comprised of all twelve tribes of the Patriarchs Abrvham (Abraham) , Yitzchak (Isaac) , and Ya'akov (Jacob) , and also includes those who are not physical descendants of the Patriarchs, yet serve the Elohim of Abrvham, Yitzchak, and Ya'akov and claim the promise of Abrvham’s seed through faith in Yahshua the Messiah. Believers in Messiah Yahshua make a citizenship choice to become a part of the Commonwealth of Yisra’el. Physical lineage does not carry special status or merit within the Kingdom of Messiah (Romans 11:1-23, Eph. 2:10-19, 1 Kepha 2:9-11, Ezk. 37: 15-22).

11. The final plan for the Elohim of Yisra’el is to bring the remnant of all twelve tribes of Yisra’el, and those believers who were formerly Non-Yisraelites together and united into one holy people under one Shepherd, namely Yahshua the Messiah, thus completing the tearing down of the wall of partition. This is a necessary part of the restoration of all things spoken by the prophets. The middle wall of partition which in times past separated Yisra’el and Non-Yisraelites has been broken down and the enmity between them has been eradicated by the Messiah Yahshua. They are to worship together YHWH (John 10:16, I Corinthians 12:13, Hebrews 10:25 Hosea 1-2, John 17, Romans 9:26, Ephesians 2, & Acts 3:21).

12 . The preferred calendar is the conjunction, however, we do not judge anyone for which calendar they observe the Feasts with, whether it is the Jewish Calendar, Conjunction Calendar, or Abib Calendar. We do not support the Lunar Sabbath Doctrine.

13 . We do not tolerate any anti-messiah doctrine or suggestions. We do not lessen or question the writers of the Brit Chadasha. We believe that YHWH through the Ruach HaKodesh inspired the writers and gave them a better and more valid interpretation of the TaNaKh, than any Rabbinic Rabbi who has not yet accept Yahshua as HaMashiach.

Please note these articles of faith are not all inclusive of what we believe or practice, but is intended to give you, the reader, a basic understanding of our position.
