OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH
The BIBLE, consisting of the תורה, [ Torah ], הפטרה [ Haftarah ] (Prophets and Writings), and the later writings commonly known as the
ברית חדשה [ B’rit Chadashah ] (Renewed Covenant), is the only infallible and authoritative word of G-d. We recognize its divine inspiration,
and accept its teachings as our final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
( Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Proverbs 3:1-6; Psalm 119:89, 105; Isaiah 48:12-16; Romans 8:14-17; II Timothy 2:15, 3:16-17 )
WE BELIEVE THAT:
The שמע [Shema] -- “Hear O Israel, the L-rd our G-d, the L-rd is one” teaches that G-d is אחד ( Echad ), as so declared:
a united One, a composite unity, eternally existent in plural Oneness.
Adam & Chavah were created to be as בשר אחד [ basar echad ] (one flesh).
( Genesis 2:22-24 )
He is a personal G-d who created us , and that He exists forever in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
( Romans 8:14-17; Matthew 28:18-20; (Genesis 1 & 2; Genesis 1:1; Genesis 1:26; Genesis 2:24 )
He is Our Heavenly Father.
( Malachi 1:6; Matthew 6:9, 32; Luke 10:21-22; John 1:14; 4:23; 5:17-26; 6:28-46; Romans 8:14-15 ).
He has a Son who was, and is, and will return.
( Psalm 2; Proverbs 30:4-6 (cf. Hebrews 1); Luke 12:35-37; John 1:29-34, 49; 3:14-18 )
The Son, called Yeshua (Jesus), meaning salvation, came to this world born of a virgin
( Isaiah 7:14 ( cf. Luke 1:30-35 ) )
This One is the promised משיח [ Moshiach ] ( Messiah ) of Israel
(Isaiah 9:6-7; 11:1; Daniel 9 (especially verses 20-26); Isaiah 53; John 1:17, 40-41, 45, 49; Mark 8:29)
He is the root and offspring of David, the bright and morning star
( Numbers 24:17; Revelation 22:16).
He is our Passover, the Lamb of G-d
( I Corinthians 5:7; Revelation 5; John 1:29 )
