What We Believe

  • That the Scriptures are the inspired Word of God and the authoritative rule of faith and that the one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent “I AM.” God is Echad (One) (Deuteronomy 6:4) and eternally exists in three Persons (Matthew 28:19).
  • In the Deity of the Lord Messiah Yeshua. The Scriptures declare His virgin birth (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23), His sinless life (Hebrews 7:26), His substitutionary death on the cross (I Corinthians 15:3), and His bodily resurrection from the dead (Matthew 28:6).
  • That man was created good and upright because He was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26). However, man voluntarily sinned and brought physical as well as spiritual death (Genesis 2:17, 3:6; Romans 5:12-19).
  • Man’s only means of atonement is through the shed blood of Messiah Yeshua (Leviticus 7:11; Isaiah 53:5; I Peter 3:18).
  • In the Infilling of the Holy Spirit and that all believers should seek this promise of God.
  • This experience is distinct and subsequent to the experience of new birth (Acts 8:12-17; 10:44-46; 11:14-16). With it comes power from God for life and service and the bestowment of gifts to be used in the work of the ministry (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4,8; I Corinthians 12:1-31)
  • In Divine Healing. Deliverance from sickness is provided in the atonement and is available to all believers (Isaiah 53:4,5; Matthew 8:16,17; James 5:14-16).

Worship Style

Our Style of Worship is based on our belief in the gifts of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit). Our outward expression may be new to some. Every facet of our worship service is based on Scriptural principles. These are some of the expressions you may observe:

Lifting Hands/Clapping Hands

“I will praise You as long as I live, and in Your name I will lift up my hands.”  (Psalm 63:4)

“Clap you hands, all you nations; shout to Adoonai with cries of joy.”  (Psalm 47:1)

Praying/Singing in the Ruach

“And pray in the Ruach on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.” (Ephesians 6:18)

“I will pray with my spirit, but I will also pray with my mind; I will sing with my spirit, but I will also sing with my mind.”  (I Corinthians 14:1)

Prophecy

“Everyone who prophesies speaks to men for their strengthening, encouragement, and comfort.”  (I Corinthians 14:3)

Tongues and Interpretation

“Be eager to prophesy and do not forbid speaking in tongues.”  (I Corinthians 14:39)

“For this reason if anyone who speaks in a tongue should pray that he may interpret what he says.”  (I Corinthians 14:1)

Healing

“Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the congregation to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of Yeshua. And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up.  (James 5:14,15)
