About Us


What We Believe

Bible
We Believe… that the Bible, which is composed of both the Tanakh (Old Testament) and the B’rit Hadashah (New Testament), is the only infallible and authoritative Word of G-d.
Word of G-d is Pure – Proverbs 30:5
Word of G-d is Eternal – Isaiah 40:8
Word of G-d is Alive – Hebrews 4:12
The Word is G-d-Breathed – 2 Timothy 3:15-17
The Word of G-d Teaches Believers of Yeshua – Romans 15:4
Word of G-d is at work in Believers of Yeshua – 1 Thessalonians 2:13
Word of G-d is the Sword of the Spirit – Ephesians 6:17
Word of G-d comes from Inspiration of the Holy Spirit of God – 2 Peter 1:19-21

G-d Is Echad
We Believe… that G-d is Echad, as declared in the Shema, “a united one” or
Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 48:16-17
“compound unity,” eternally existent in three persons.
Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 John 5:7-13

The Name Of G-d
We Believe… that it is important for the people of G-d to know Him intimately. G-d has chosen to reveal Himself through His Names throughout the Bible.  Each Name of G-d reveals His character; it is important to know these Names and the meaning of these Names, since they give great significance to the particular scriptures that they are revealed and written in.  G-d’s incredible power and character are revealed in His Names.

The name of Adonai is a strong tower; a righteous person runs to it
and is raised high [above danger]. Proverbs 18:10

You, therefore, pray like this: ‘Our Father in heaven!
May your Name be kept holy."  Matthew 6:9

Lamb’s Book of Life – Psalm 69:27-28; Revelation 20:12-15; 21:27
