1 We are Dynamic
As a congregation we engage in dynamic dissusion in which encourages members to get involved and to be a part of what is going on. One example is our Messianic Midrash style teaching time. Midrash is a Hebraic term used to describe the "Investigation" of Scripture, and the composition of thoughts derived from that Study. A Drash is a short summery of the Investigation, which is then presented to a group for the purpose of provoking discussion and further reaching on the topic. Our objective is not to establish doctrine, as learning is an ongoing endeavour. The objective is to question our present understandings in order to help solidify our Faith on Truth, rather than upon theological assumptions.
2. We are Inviting
As a congregation of diverse people we try to maintain an environment that others want to be part of and has a culture of inclusion. You are welcome to come partcipate and join in.
3. We are Intentional
We do things with purpose, As an example we learn about the patterns and the Moedim "Appointed Times", which are typically called, "Jewish holidays" but in the Bible are referred to as God's feast days. These include: Pesakh (Passover), Matzah (Unleavened Bread), Yom Habikkurim (First Fruits), Shavuot (Pentecost), Rosh HaShannah, Yom Kippur and Succot (Tabernacles). Also the Shabbat (Sabbath)
Everything in the Bible is done for a reason and our goal is to strive to follow Gods pattern for our life.
Part of that is keeping the Torah which includes keeping the Sabbath on the seventh day of the week (Saturday), as stated before, celebrating the Biblical feasts and festivals, keeping the dietary laws and learning to understand the Scriptures from a Hebrew mindset. We teach that Gentile Christians have been grafted into Israel, and this is one reason every born-again believer in Jesus the Messiah is to participate in these observances. We would like to emphisize that doing this is not required out of legalistic bondage, but out of a heart of love and obedience.
4. We are Interactive
We are an interactive community of friends. We encourage relationships and fellowship with other members. We do this by providing opportunities for members to participate in activities such as reaching out to each other in times of need and sharing in celebrations such as feast days and festivals. We dont just talk about the Biblical festivals we do them when ever it is possible.
5. We Welcome you
We make every effort to help guests feel welcomed and do our best to make you feel part of the community.
6. We are Relevant
We are relevant and in tune with the issues and events of the world and provide an environment and teaching that is pertinent to our day-to-day lives.
We believe that Yeshua (Jesus’ original name in Hebrew) is the Messiah of Israel and the Savior of the world.
We believe that Yeshua ascended to the right hand of God the Father and is coming back to Earth to reign from Jerusalem over Israel and all the nations of the world.
We believe that all have sinned and need the salvation, which is provided only through Yeshua (Jesus) and by the grace of Yahweh (God).
We believe in both the Old and New Testament in their original, inspired text to give us instrutions on how to live and grow as a believer in Christ.
7. May you have Shalom
May the Lord bless you, and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine on you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance on you,
And give you peace.
’ So they shall invoke My name on the sons of Israel,
and I then will bless them”
is a Hebrew word meaning peace, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity, and welfare and can be used idiomatically to mean both hello and goodbye
WE ARE GRAFTED IN:
13 I am talking to you Gentiles. Inasmuch as I am the apostle to the Gentiles, I take pride in my ministry
14 in the hope that I may somehow arouse my own people to envy and save some of them.
15 For if their rejection brought reconciliation to the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead?
16 If the part of the dough offered as firstfruits is holy, then the whole batch is holy; if the root is holy, so are the branches.
17 If some of the branches have been broken off, and you, though a wild olive shoot, have been grafted in among the others and now share in the nourishing sap from the olive root,
18 do not consider yourself to be superior to those other branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you.
19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off so that I could be grafted in.”
20 Granted. But they were broken off because of unbelief, and you stand by faith. Do not be arrogant, but tremble.
21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, he will not spare you either.
