Statement of Belief
The New Oxford Dictionary of English defines the theological use of covenant as "an agreement
which brings about a relationship of commitment between G-d and His people."
We believe that G-d has chosen to communicate to us, to redeem us and to guarantee us eternal life in Yeshua (Jesus), Hebrews 13:20, through His Covenants, which are built one upon the other.
We believe in one G-d, "Hear, O Israel, the L-rd our G-d is one", Deuteronomy 6:4, and the meaning of the word "One" is found in the Hebrew text, Echad meaning a composite unity.
Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah promised throughout the entire Tanakh (Old Testament) and our only way of Salvation. He has revealed to us the full meaning of the Torah, and what it means to live in covenant with YHVH (G-d), by both word and deed.
We believe that the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) is just as much at work today as in the past.
The Bible, composed of both the Tanakh (OT) and the Brit Chadash (NT), forms one, continuous, 'G-d breathed' entity as opposed to two separate 'testaments' wherein one supersedes the other.
What YHVH destroyed on the cross was the penalty that the Law of YHVH demanded as payment for the breaking of it, and that we are no longer under the law of sin and death but are under grace as Paul says in Romans 6:14. The Law of YHVH was never abolished just because faith in Yeshua came as Paul so boldly declares in Romans 3:31 "Do we nullify YHVH's Law because of faith? May it never be. As a matter of fact, we establish YHVH's Law."
What was destroyed at the cross was the power of sin and the penalty thereof over all mankind. And what was changed and "done away with" was the priestly system of sacrifices by mere men because of the perfect sacrifice by our true High Priest and King Messiah, Hebrews 9-11. l John 3:4 says "Sin is the transgression of the Law". Therefore, if we get rid of YHVH's Holy Law, then we are removing the only definition of sin found in the Bible. If there is no law, then there is no sin. If there is no sin, there can be no curse. If there is no curse, then there is no need for the blood of our Savior.
We do not believe that keeping the Torah is required for salvation, but is living proof that we love Him, l John 5:2-3.
A mikveh (living water immersion) unto Yeshua, is a step of obedience of having faith in Yeshua, as exampled by Yochanan (John) the Immerser.
The appointed festivals of YHVH are relevant in reminding us of His plan of salvation for us today and of the coming back of the Messiah to rule and reign, Leviticus 23, l Corinthians 5:8 and Colossians 2:16-1
