13 ARTICLES OF FAITH

1.

That the Holy Scriptures composed of both the Old Covenant (Tanach) and the New Covenant (Brit Chadashah) are the only infallible and authoritative Word of God  (2 Timothy 3:16);

2.

That God is “Echad” as described in the Shema (Deuteronomy 6:4) “a united one” or “compound unity”eternally existent in three Persons as expressed in Isaiah 48:16-17;

3.

In the Deity of Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah), and that He is the “Seed of the Woman” as God promised in Genesis 3:15, and that His virgin birth was to be a sign to Israel of His Messiahship as stated in Isaiah 7:14 and Isaiah 9:6-7;

4.

In Messiah’s life, His miracles yesterday and today, His vicarious and sacrificial death as our atonement, His bodily resurrection, His appearance thereafter in Jerusalem, His ascension, His personal future return for believers in Yeshua, both living and dead, and His future establishment of His kingdom on earth;

5.

That the only means of being cleansed from sin is by grace, through faith in the shed sacrificial blood of Yeshua HaMashiach, and that re-generation by the Spirit of God is absolutely essential for personal salvation (Leviticus 17:11, Ephesians 2:8);

6.

In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a Godly life (Ezekekiel 36:26-27);

7.

That the promise of the Father, as contained in Acts 1:4-8 and the gifts of the Ruach HaKodesh as foretold by Jewish prophets (Joel 2:27-29 and Isaiah 28:11-12), fulfilled in Acts 10:44-48 and as taught by the anointed Jewish apostle, Paul, are for believers today (1 Corinthians 12:4-11);

8.

That Jews according to the flesh (descendents of Abraham through Isaac and Jacob, whether through the blood line of the mother or of the father) who place their faith in Israel’s Messiah Yeshua have not disowned or separated themselves from their race and Jewish heritage, but remain sons and daughters of Israel (Romans 2:26-29, 1 Corinthians 7:17-24).  Gentiles who place their faith in Israel’s Messiah Yeshua are also, spiritually, sons and daughters of Israel (Galatians 3:28-29);

9.

In the resurrection of both saved and lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to eternal separation from God, the latter being consigned to a state of everlasting punishment (Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:46);

10.

That the middle wall of partition which in times past separated Jews and Gentiles has been broken down, the enmity between them eradicated by the Messiah Yeshua (Ephesians 2:11-18);

11.

That the New Covenant body of the Lord is composed of both Jews and Gentiles who have accepted Yeshua HaMashiach as the Promised Redeemer, and that now they are to worship together in the House of God (1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Hebrews 10:25);

12.

In the partaking of the communal elements of the matzoh (unleavened bread) and the fruit of the vine, as instituted by Yeshua HaMashiach at His last Passover Seder; that the elements are symbolic of the Lord’s death and His resurrection (1 Corinthians 11:23-34);

13.

In the immersion of believers (Tavilah), as commanded in the Scriptures as an outward sign of an inward salvation experience, symbolizing the death of the old man and the resurrection unto newness of life (Matthew 28:18-20).
