What we believe in full explanation with scripture reference:

We believe in the full counsel of the Bible,  both the TaNaCh (Old Covenant) and the Brit Hadasshah (Renewed Covenant) and that both are applicable to us as believers today, which is the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of Elohim "All Scripture is breathed by Elohim and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for setting straight, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of Elohim might be fitted, equipped for every good work." (2 Tim 3:16-17).

We believe in One Elohim (God), as He has revealed Himself in the Scriptures. “Hear, O Yisra’ĕl: יהוה (YHWH) our Elohim, יהוה (YHWH) is one!” (Deut 6:4)  “I and My Father are one.” (John 10:30). We believe that the intended meaning of this word “one” as found in Hebrew (echad), means a “composite unity.”

We believe that Yeshua is the Son of Elohim (God), the Messiah, the Eternal One in whom all the fullness of deity dwells in bodily form, and who is the Word who became flesh and dwelt amongst us, and whose glory we beheld, the glory of the uniquely begotten Son of Elohim, full of grace and mercy "1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. 14 And the Word became flesh and pitched His tent among us, and we saw His esteem, esteem as of an only brought-forth of a father, complete in favour and truth." (John 1:1-14) "Because in Him (Yeshua) dwells all the completeness of the Mightiness bodily" (Col 2:9).

We believe that the Ruach haKodesh (Holy Spirit) of Elohim comforts, teaches, leads, indwells and empowers all whom He regenerates. "But when He comes, the Spirit of the Truth, He shall guide you into all the truth. For He shall not speak from Himself, but whatever He hears He shall speak, and He shall announce to you what is to come." (Joh 16:13) "But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of Elohim dwells in you. And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Messiah, this one is not His. (Rom 8;9-11)

We believe "for all have sinned and fall short of the esteem of Elohim" (Rom 3:23).

We believe that Yeshua’s death and resurrection accomplished the Atonement for all who would place their faith in Him. Whoever trusts in YHWH (Yahweh), in His work alone, is made a new creation in Messiah, indwell by the Ruach of Elohim, and is transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of His own Son "For by favour you have been saved, through belief, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of Elohim, it is not by works, so that no one should boast."  (Eph 2:8-9)

We believe the only way to obtain Righteousness before Elohim is through the work of Yeshua Messiah on the crucifixion stake (cross) and not through the Torah (Law/1st 5 books of the TaNaCh) "I do not set aside the favour (grace) of Elohim, for if righteousness is through Torah, then Messiah died for naught.” (Gal 2:21)

We believe Salvation is by Faith through the favour of Elohim alone, and not by human efforts. One may not earn, merit, or keep this eternal salvation by his own efforts. A new creation is the work of Elohim alone. "For by favour you have been saved, through belief, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of Elohim, it is not by works, so that no one should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Messiah יהושע unto good works, which Elohim prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. (Eph 2:8-10)  "That if you confess with your mouth the Master יהושע and believe in your heart that Elohim has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved." (Rom 10:9)

We believe in the spiritual unity and equality of all believers in Messiah Y’shua (Eph 2:11-22).

We believe in the continuity of YHWH’s covenants with the physical people of Israel according to Jeremiah 31:35-36 "Thus said יהוה (YHWH), who gives the sun for a light by day, and the laws of the moon and the stars for a light by night, who stirs up the sea, and its waves roar – יהוה (YHWH) of hosts is His Name:  “If these laws vanish from before Me,” declares  יהוה (YHWH), then the seed of Yisra’ĕl (Israel) shall also cease from being a nation before Me forever.” and parallel passages.
Part of the fulfillment of these covenants is the physical return of the people of Israel to their Promised Land (Deut 30).

We believe that all non-Jewish people who believe in Yeshua as the Messiah are grafted into the seed of Israel, which is YHWH's people, and while this does not make them Jewish, they are granted the privilege of following the Torah (Yahweh's Instructions), having had it written upon their hearts as participants of the Renewed Covenant "I say then, have they (Israel) stumbled that they should fall? Let it not be! But by their fall deliverance has come to the gentiles, to provoke them to jealousy.  And if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the gentiles, how much more their completeness!" (Rom 11:11-24)  “For this is the covenant I (YHWH) shall make with the house of Yisra’ĕl (Israel) after those days, declares יהוה (YHWH): I shall put My Torah (Law/Instructions) in their inward parts, and write it on their hearts. And I shall be their Elohim, and they shall be My people."  (Jer 31:33).

We believe that the Torah (first five books of the Bible) is a revelation of the righteousness and character of Elohim. The Torah (along with the rest of the Scripture) is the foundation of the full instructions of YHWH to His people as the blueprint for the lifestyle of the redeemed community.  17 "Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah (1st 5 books of the Old Covenant) or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to complete. (The Torah and the Prophets is a term used for the pre-Messianic Scriptures). 18 “For truly, I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, one jot (smallest letter of the Hebrew Alphabet) or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be done. 19  Whoever, then, breaks one of the least of these commands, and teaches men so, shall be called least in the reign of the heavens; but whoever does and teaches them, he shall be called great in the reign of the heavens." (Mat 5:17-19)

We believe in the physical Rapture of the Bride of Messiah when He will take His Bride up into heaven for a period of 7 years, before the lawless one will reveal himself in the tribulation period to follow on this earth. (1 Thess 4:16-17; 1 Cor 15:52; 2 Thess 2:1-3; Rev 4:1)

We believe in a literal, physical Second Return of Messiah to rule and reign upon the throne of David in Jerusalem. (Zech 14; Rev 19-20).

We believe in the Resurrection of both the wicked and the righteous. Those who have believed in Yeshua will be resurrected unto life and those who died without having believed in Yeshua will experience eternal wrath of God. "For the wrath of Elohim is revealed from heaven against all wickedness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,"
 (Rom 1:18)  (1 Cor 15; Rev 20-21).

We do not prescribe a certain Dogma!
We believe in the full counsel of the Word of YHWH!
