We believe in one eternal God as he has revealed himself in the Scriptures. “Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is One.” (Deuteronomy 6:4) who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit; each person being fully God, and there being only one God. He is love and He is holy.
We believe that God created the Heavens and the Earth, out of nothing, and everything in them over six days.
Jesus (Yeshua) the Messiah
We believe that Jesus (Yeshua) is the Son of God, the Messiah, the Eternal One in whom all the fullness of deity dwells in bodily form, and who is the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us, and whose glory we beheld, the glory of the uniquely begotten Son of God, full of grace and truth. (John 1:1-14; Colossians 2:9). We believe in Jesus’ humanity, deity, virgin birth, sinless life, atoning death for the sins of the world, resurrection from the dead, ascension to the Father’s right hand and personal return to reign upon earth.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Spirit of God comforts, teaches, leads, indwells and empowers all whom God regenerates. (Acts 9:31; 1 John 2:27)
The Word of God
We believe that the Bible, both the Old Testament (Tanach) and the New Testament (Apostolic Writings), are the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
We believe that all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God. (Romans 3:23) and that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
We believe Jesus’ death and resurrection accomplished the atonement for all who place their faith in him. Whoever trusts in God, in his work alone, is made a new creation in Jesus, indwelt by the Spirit of God, and is transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of his own Son. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 5, 6)
We believe in justification by faith through the grace of God alone, and not by human efforts. One may not earn, merit, or keep this eternal salvation by his own efforts. A new creation is the work of God alone. (Ephesians 2:8-10; Romans 8:29-39)
We believe that by faith in, and confession of Jesus as Messiah, we are saved from our sins and receive the gift of eternal life from God.
The Jewish People
We believe in the continuity of God’s covenants with the Jewish people, the physical people of Israel (Jeremiah 31:35-36 and parallel passages). Part of the fulfilment of these covenants is the physical return of the Jewish people to their promised land. (Deuteronomy 30)
We believe that all non-Jewish people who trust in Jesus are grafted into Israel. While this does not make them Jewish, they are full and equal participants in the covenants of promise. (Ephesians 2:12; Romans 11:11-24; Jeremiah 31:33)
The Church Universal
We believe in the spiritual unity and equality of all believers in Jesus the Messiah. (Ephesians 2:11-22). We believe that the church comprises of believers from all nations and denominations under the headship of Jesus (Yeshua), the Messiah.
We believe that the Torah is a revelation of the righteousness of God and a description (along with the rest of Scripture) of the lifestyle of the redeemed community. (Matthew 5:17-19; 2 Timothy 3:16-17)
We believe in water baptism for all believers by full immersion; and the Lord’s supper, celebrated regularly in remembrance of Jesus the Messiah.
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit
We believe in the infilling of the Holy Spirit with the evidence being speaking in other tongues. For the purposes of being witnesses of Jesus the Messiah.
We believe that divine healing has been secured for every believer through the atonement of Jesus the Messiah.
We believe in the fulfilment of Biblical prophecy in world events, heralding the end of this age. We believe in the literal, physical return of Messiah to rule and reign upon the throne of David in Jerusalem for one thousand years, followed by the final judgement of unbelievers, and the World to Come. We hold to a pre-millennial view of his return. (Zechariah 14; Revelation 19-20),
