What We Believe

We refer to Jesus by His given name in Aramaic/Hebrew which is Yeshua which translates as "Salvation" rather than the Hellenistic name of Jesus which does not have the same connotation in Middle Eastern thought.

The Scriptures

We believe that "all Scripture is given by inspiration of G-d" (2 Timothy 3:16). We understand this to mean that the whole Bible is inspired, in that holy men of G-d "were moved by the Holy Spirit" (Peter 1:21) to write the very words of Scripture. We believe that this divine inspiration extends equally and fully to all parts of Scripture as it appeared in the original manuscripts. We believe that the whole Bible in those original manuscripts is, therefore, without error. We believe that all Scripture centres around the Yeshua HaMashiac (Jesus Christ) in His person, work, and in His first and second coming. Therefore, no portion of the Old Testament is properly read or understood until it leads to Yeshua. We also believe that all Scripture was designed for our practical instruction. (Luke 24:27,44; John 5:39; Romans 15:4; 1 Corinthians 10:11; 2 Timothy 3:16)

The Triune Godhead

We believe in the one true and living G-d, the Creator, Redeemer, Sustainer, and Ruler of all things. He is infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, and is revealed to us as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. G-d the Father: G-d, as Father, reigns over all of His universe with providential care. He is all-powerful, all-loving, all-knowing, and all-wise. He is fatherly in attitude toward all men but is Father, indeed, to those who have become children of G-d through Messiah Yeshua, who will deliver them into the Father's hands. He also remains a G-d of Judgement and will enact judgment upon those that do not believe. (Genesis 1:1; 1Chronicles 29:10; Jeremiah 10:10; Matthew 6:9; Acts 1:7; Romans 8:14-15; 1Corinthians 8:6; 1Corinthians 15:24; Ephesians 4:6) G-d the Son: We believe that the Messiah Yeshua, the eternal Son of G-d, became man without ceasing to be G-d, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, in order that He might reveal G-d and redeem sinful man. He accomplished this redemption by voluntarily giving Himself as a sinless, substitutionary sacrifice on the cross, thereby satisfying G-d's righteous judgment against sin. After substantiating the accomplishment of that redemption and justification by His bodily resurrection from the grave, He ascended to the right hand of His Father, where He intercedes on behalf of those who trust Him. (Luke 1:34-35; John 1:1, 2, 14, 18; Romans 3:24-26; Romans 8:3) G-d the Holy Spirit: We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Divine Person who convicts the world of sin (righteousness and judgment); that He alone brings new life to those who are spiritually dead; that He baptizes (or places) all believers into the one true Church, which is the Body of Messiah; that He indwells them permanently, seals them unto the day of final redemption, bestows spiritual gifts upon them, and fills (indwells) those who are yielding to Him. Every believer is called to live in the power of the indwelling Holy Spirit so that he will not fulfill the lust of the flesh but will bear fruit to the glory of G-d. (John 3:3-8; John 14:16-17; John 16:7-11; 1 Corinthians 12:7-11, 13; Ephesians 4:30; Ephesians 5:18)


We believe that man was created directly by and in the image of G-d. We believe that G-d created the heavens and the earth, including all life, by direct act. (Genesis 1:1; John 1:3; Colossians 1:16-17)


Although man was created in the image of G-d, he fell into sin and is lost. This is true of all men; and except a man be born again by the Holy Spirit, he cannot see the kingdom of G-d. (Genesis 1:26-27; John 3:3; Romans 3:10, 23)

The Devil - Satan

We believe that Satan is a person, the author of sin, and the reason for the fall of man, and is destined to the judgment of an eternal punishment in the lake of fire. (Matthew 4:1-3; Acts 5:3; 2Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 20:10)

Atonement For Sin

We believe that the Messiah Yeshua died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a substitutionary sacrifice and that all who believe on Him are redeemed by His shed blood. We believe in the resurrection of the crucified body of our Messiah Yeshua and in His ascension into heaven; He is our High Priest and Advocate. (John 1:1-3, 14; 3:1-7; Hebrews 10:4-14; 1 John 2:2)


We believe that salvation is the gift of G-d's grace. It cannot be gained or made more secure by meritorious works, but is freely bestowed upon all who put their faith in the finished work of Messiah Yeshua at Calvary. All who so trust the Saviour are forgiven of their sins and born into the family of G-d by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit. (John 1:12; Acts 16:30-33; Romans 10:9-10; Ephesians 1:7; Ephesians 2:8-9)

The Christian Walk

We believe that we have a holy calling to walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit, and so to live in the power of the indwelling Spirit in order that we will not fulfill the lust of the flesh. The flesh is never eradicated in this life. Individuals must choose to keep the flesh in subjection to Yeshua (Jesus) through the power of the Holy Spirit, or it will surely manifest its presence in life and dishonor our Lord. (Romans 6:11-13; 8:2, 4, 12-13; Galatians 5:16-23; Ephesians 4:22-24; Colossians 2:1-10; 1 Peter 1:14-16; 1 John 1:4-7; 3:5-9)

The Great Commission

Until the return of Yeshua (Jesus), it is the Christian's duty and privilege to seek the fulfillment of Messiah's Great Commission and to minister in His name to a needy world. We are to be instruments of Yeshua as the Holy Spirit ministers redemption and reconciliation in the world. (Matthew 25:31-46; Matthew 28:18-20)
