Our mission statement:   Restoring the truth of Yeshua (Jesus’ Hebrew name)

 

Our vision:

In depth teaching and study of the Hebraic Heritage of Biblical Faith.

Interactive worship and classes where all can participate.

Goal: Understand and follow God’s instructions, including his appointed times.

Goal: Walk after Yeshua in Spirit and in Truth

Encourage, feed and strengthen the Body of Messiah

Welcome all who seek THE  TRUTH – Yeshua

 

We are a house of study, study of Yeshua, study which leads to obedience to Him and His word; obedience that bears witness of HaShem (The God of the Bible, Who is the Creator of the universe.)

We are committed to understanding Yeshua within His Hebrew context.

We are associated with a movement among the followers of Yeshua which is called by several names:   The Jewish Roots of the Christian faith, the Hebraic Renewal of the Scripture, Messianic Jews and Gentiles, Revival of Torah, Torah Communities and others.   We consider ourselves to be faithfully a part of and committed to the covenant that HaShem has made with the house of Israel.  Gentiles have been grafted (adopted) into the Biblical Covenant with Israel.  Jew and Gentile are now one in Yeshua, we are the Ekklesia (Assembly) of Yeshua.

 

We believe we are all ambassadors for Christ as stated in 2 Corinthians 5:20.  Here is a good Ambassador’s Creed from Stand To Reason.

Ambassador’s Creed

 

An ambassador is… 

§         Ready.  An Ambassador is alert for chances to represent Christ and will not back away from a challenge or an opportunity.

§         Patient.  An Ambassador won’t quarrel, but will listen in order to understand, then with gentleness seek to respectfully engage those who disagree.

§         Reasonable.  An Ambassador has informed convictions (not just feelings), gives reasons, asks questions, aggressively seeks answers, and will not be stumped by the same challenge twice.

§         Tactical.  An Ambassador adapts to each unique person and situation, maneuvering with wisdom to challenge bad thinking, presenting the truth in an understandable and compelling way.

§         Clear.  An Ambassador is careful with language and will not rely on Christian lingo nor gain unfair advantage by resorting to empty rhetoric.

§         Fair.  An Ambassador is sympathetic and understanding towards others and will acknowledge the merits of contrary views.

§         Honest.  An Ambassador is careful with the facts and will not misrepresent another’s view, overstate his own case, or understate the demands of the Gospel.

§         Humble.  An Ambassador is provisional in his claims, knowing that his understanding of truth is fallible.  He will not press a point beyond what his evidence allows.

§         Attractive.  An Ambassador will act with grace, kindness, and good manners.  He will not dishonor Christ in his conduct.

§         Dependent.  An Ambassador knows that effectiveness requires joining his best efforts with God’s power.
