Meet Our Leaders
Our congregation (“Kehilah” in Hebrew) is a diverse mix of believers, Jew and Gentile worshipping Yeshua (Jesus) as the “One New Man” (Eph. 2:14-15). As a messianic congregation, we choose to reflect the Jewishness of our Messiah and the roots of our faith (Rom. 11) in the many aspects of our worship expression.
Our main Shabbat service consists of dynamic Messianic praise & worship along with Hebraic/Davidic style dance and the ministry of G-d’s Word. We devote a portion of the service to the traditional sequence of readings from the Torah, keeping with customs that were celebrated by Yeshua (Lk.4) and continue today in synagogues around the world. We allow for freedom and direction of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) in all our services as we minister unto the L-rd.
Our congregational culture is very free, warm, & inviting so everyone is welcome no matter the background or understanding of the Messianic Movement. Our heart is for all to draw closer to Yeshua and be equipped to be light and salt in the earth.
What We Believe
- We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments (Tanach and Brit Chadasha) are divinely inspired, verbally and completely inerrant in the original writings, and of supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and life.
- We believe in one sovereign G-d, in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, unbounded in power, and measureless in love; G-d is the source of all creation, through the immediate exercise of His power, all things came into being.
- We believe G-d the Father is the author of eternal salvation, having loved the world and given his Son for its redemption. We believe Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah was eternally pre-existent and is co-equal with G-d the Father; that he took on himself the nature of man through the virgin birth, so that he possessed both divine and human natures.
- We believe in His sinless life and perfect obedience to the Law; His atoning death; His burial and bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, high priestly intercession, and future personal return in power and glory. We believe the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) is co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and the Son; He was active in the creation of all things and continues to be so in providence; He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment; He regenerates, sanctifies, baptizes, indwells, seals, illumines, guides, and bestows His gifts upon all believers.
- We believe G-d created man in His image; but because of the disobedience of our first parents in the Garden of Eden, they lost their innocence and both they and their descendants, separated from G-d, suffer physical and spiritual death; all human beings are sinners by nature and practice.
- We believe Yeshua the Messiah died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitution sacrifice; all who believe in Him are justified, not by any works of righteousness, but by his perfect righteous atoning blood; and there is no other name under heaven, by which we must be saved.
- We believe Israel exists as a covenanted people through whom G-d continues to accomplish his purposes; the Church is an elect people in accordance with the New Covenant, comprised of both Jews and Gentiles who acknowledge Yeshua as Messiah and Redeemer.
- We believe Yeshua will return personally in order to consummate the prophesied purposes concerning His kingdom.
- We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
