What we believe – Our Tenets of Faith

1.                  We believe YHVH is the personal Hebrew name of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and is vocalized as Yahweh. We believe that Yahshua HaMashiach is the true Hebrew name for Jesus Christ and Ruach HaKodesh is the true Hebrew name for The Holy Spirit.  (Exodus 3:15)

2.                  We believe Yahweh is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (1 John 5:7; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14, John 10:30, Hebrews 1:8, John 1:1, John 20:28, Isaiah 9:6, Titus 2:13-14, 2 Peter 1:1, John 14:8-10, Colossians 2:9)

3.                  We believe the Holy Scriptures (Torah, Writings, Prophets and Renewed Testament) as originally written in Hebrew is infallible, Yahweh-breathed and are His inspired instructions. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

4.                  We believe in honouring all Ten Commandments of Yahweh, especially the Fourth Commandment.  We believe the Sabbath is the seventh day of the week (Saturday). (Exodus 20:1-17, Deuteronomy 5:1-22, John 14:15, 1 John 3:22-24, 1 John 2:3-7)

5.                  We believe in Yahweh's calendar for time as recorded in the Holy Scriptures (Genesis 1:14, Psalm 81:3, Isaiah 66:23)

6.                  We believe in celebrating Yahweh's appointed Feasts and not the non-Scriptural Christmas and Easter. (Leviticus 23:1.44, Deuteronomy 16:1-17)

7.                  We believe we have been grafted into Israel, and we are part of the Commonwealth of Israel on conversion, and therefore a part of the Whole House of Israel. (Romans 11:17-28, Ephesians 2:12, Romans 15:27, Exodus 12:38, Ruth 1:16-17, Joshua 2, Jeremiah 31:31 and Hebrews 8:8)

8.                  We believe in the ‘The Fall of Man’; that Adam was created in the image of Yahweh but by disobedience, fell from perfection in the Garden of Eden. (Romans 5:12)

9.                  We believe in the plan of Redemption and Yahshua HaMashiach's Substitutionary Atonement for Man; that Yahshua died on the cross at Calvary for the Redemption of Mankind. (John 3:16, Isaiah 53)

10.               We believe in the Virgin Birth of Yahshua HaMashiach. (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:20-23, Luke 1: 26-38)

11.               We believe Yahshua HaMashiach was crucified and buried for three days and three nights. (Matthew 27:32: 61, Mark 15:21-47, Luke 26-56, John 19:17-37, 1 Corinthians 1:23, Matthew 12)

12.               We believe Yahshua HaMashiach was fully bodily resurrected by the Power of Yahweh. (Matthew 28:6-9, John 20:19, Luke 24: 36-49, Mark 16:9-18, 1 Corinthians 15:5-8, Acts 2 :23-24,31,32, Acts 3:13-16,18,26., Acts 4:2,10,33.)

13.               We believe the Second coming of Yahshua HaMashiach is imminent. We believe in the Rapture of the Whole House of Israel. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3, Genesis 5:24, Amos 3:3, Luke 21:27, Mark 13:26, Matthew 24:30)


14.               We believe in Hell. (Matthew 25:41, Luke 16:23, Revelation 20:11-15)

15.               We believe in ‘Salvation through Grace by Faith’ followed by the evidence of the fruit of the Ruach HaKodesh. We believe we have no right standing with Yahweh and we must come to Him through Yahshua Ha Mashiach's pleading the righteousness of Yahweh. (Ephesians 2:8)

16.               We believe in Mikvahs (Water Baptisms). We believe that the initial Mikvah is by full immersion; identifying with the Death, Burial and Resurrection of Yahshua HaMashiach. (Hebrews 6:1-2, Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:4-5, Acts 2:38)

17.               We believe the indwelling of the Ruach HaKodesh is a gift for all believers in Yahshua HaMashiach.  We believe in the gift of the Ruach HaKodesh of speaking in tongues. (Acts 2:4, Matthew 3:11, Luke 24:49, John 7:38-39, Acts 1:5,8 Acts 8:14-20, Acts 10:44-47, Acts 11:15-16, Acts 18:24-28, Acts 19:1-6)

18.               We believe the Ruach HaKodesh bestows ministry gifts upon believers in Yahshua HaMashiach. (Galatians 5:22-23, 1 Corinthians 12:1-11, Hebrews 12:14)

19.               We believe Apostles and Prophets are the foundation of the Ecclesia with Yahshua HaMashiach as the Chief corner stone. (Ephesians 2:20)

20.               We believe in the Five Ascension gift ministries (Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastor and Teacher) and that they are all required for the equipping of the saints, for the work of ministry; and are all necessary for the building up, maturing and perfection of the Ecclesia. (Ephesians 2:10, 4:11-16)

21.               We believe Soul-winning is an integral part of the Ecclesia (Congregation) on earth.  We believe in reaching the Nations for Yahshua HaMashiach and sending forth Missionaries. (Matthew 28:9, 2 Timothy 4:5)

22.               We believe in the autonomy of each local Ecclesia, and that travelling itinerant ministers should be based out of and relate to a local Ecclesia with accountability. (Acts 13:1, Acts 15)

23.               We believe in worshiping Yahweh with the raising of our hands, kneeling, dancing, clapping, shouting and rejoicing. We believe in joyous praise and worship. Making a joyful noise unto Yahweh and singing in The Spirit. (John 4:23-24, Psalm 47:1, Psalm 149:3, Psalm 150:4, Philippians 4:4, Psalm 13:5, Psalm 30:5, Romans 15:13, Psalm 28:7, Psalm 63:4, Psalm 134:2, Lamentations 3:41, Nehemiah 8:6, Ezra 9:5, Psalm 95:6, Nehemiah 8:10)

24.               We believe in the ministry of Laying on of Hands. (Hebrews 6:2, 1 Timothy 4:14)

25.               We believe in the Deliverance Ministry; the casting out of demons (Matthew 12:43-45, Mark 16:17, Acts 19:13-16, Luke 10:17, Mark 3:11, Acts 16:16)

26.               We believe that Divine Healing is part of the atoning work of Yahshua HaMashiach (Mark 16:17-18, Matthew 8.17, Isaiah 53:2-4, 1 Peter 2:24, 1 Thessalonians 5:23)

27.               We believe that Tithes, Offerings, and Alms are Yahweh’s economical system. That this is His ordained method of propagation of the Gospel and the support of His Ministers. (Malachi 3:8-10, 2 Corinthians 9:7, 1 Corinthians 9:14, Ecclesiastes 4:1)
