DO we need just another group? ? ?

The Gospel of Jesus has down through the ages taken on a desidely Hellinistic character and left its Hebraic heritage far behind. There is a definate move of God taking place throughout the World, You can either ignor God or get involved in His handywork. The choice is sinply yours to make. We only desire what God has for us nothing more and nothing less!To fully comprehend what scripture teaches we must read it with a Hebraic heart and lose our Aristolian viewpoint.Many have complained through the years about not understanding the Bible, this is the true reason why they do not!

Our Statement of Faith

...We Believe...

In the verbal inspiration of the scriptures, that the Bible, composed of both the Tenakh or OldTestament and the Brit Hadashah or NewTestament is the only infallible and authoritative Word of God. 2 Timothy 3: 15-17; Romans 15:4; 2 Peter 1: 19-21; Ephesians 6:17

We believe that God is Echad, as declared in the Shema, “a united one” or “compound unity,” eternally existent in three persons, namely The Father, The Son, and the Holy Ghost Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 48:16-17; 1 John 5:7-13

In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ(Yeshua HaMashiach ). He is the Seed of the Woman just as God promised and that His virgin birth was to be a sign to the House of Israel, and the House of Judah of His Messiahship. In His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return to power and

glory and the establishment of His kingdom on Earth. Isaiah 53:8; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Isaiah 9:6-7;1Corinthians 11:26; Zechariah 12:6-10; Zechariah 14:16-21

We are saved by Grace; We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is by grace, through faith in the shed sacrificial blood of Yeshua HaMashiach and that regeneration by the Spirit of God is absolutely essential for personal salvation. Leviticus 17:11; Ephesians 2:8; Romans 1:17; Habakkuk 2:4; John 3:3; Hebrews 11:6; Genesis 15:6

In a life of holiness, without which no man can see the Lord.

In sanctification as a definite, yet progressive, work of grace.

In the Baptism of the Holy Ghost (RUACH HAKODESH), received subsequent to the new birth, with the speaking in tongues, as the Spirit gives utterance, as the initial physical sign. We believe in the present day ministry of the Ruach Hakodesh, by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a godly life. Jeremiah 31:31-34; John 14:15-17; Galatians 5:13-25

In water baptism by immersion( Messianic Mikvah) for believers only, which is a direct commandment of our Lord.

In the Lord's Supper

In divine healing, provided for in the atonement, and is available to all who truly believe.

In the Second Coming of Yashua: first, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to meet Him in the air; and, second, to establish a Kingdom on the earth for a thousand years.

In the Bodily Resurrection of both the saved and the lost: that they are saved unto the resurrection of life, and that they are lost to the resurrection of damnation. Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:46; Psalm 69:28; Revelation 20:12-15

In The TWO HOUSE'S of Israel, We are a people whose heart's desire is to fully reunite the olive tree of Israel—both branches— Ephraim and Judah—into one, redeemed, nation of Israel—through Messiah Yeshua. They seek to arouse Ephraim from obscurity, and by example, to awaken Judah to the Messiah and thus to hasten both Yeshua's return to Earth and the restoration of the Kingdom to Israel (Mat 6:10; 12:25; 21:43; 24:43; Luke 22:29-30; Mark
