Statement of Faith

Lev Y’shua Messianic Congregation Statement of Faith 

As a Body Ministry, We Believe:

· 
  • In the death, burial, resurrection, and coming return of Y’shua, by whose blood we have redemption from sin and eternal salvation for all those who believe.  Isaiah 53:4-12, John 3:16, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
  • All scripture from Genesis to Revelation is authored by Elohim (God) and Torah is given as loving instruction of how a redeemed people should live.  Deuteronomy 4:1-2, Psalm 89:34, Matthew 5:17-19,  2 Timothy 3:16-17
  • In the infilling of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) and all of His gifts and ministries. We welcome an anointed, orderly move of the Ruach HaKodesh.  Exodus 31:2-3, Numbers 11:24-30, Isaiah 63:9-14, 1 Corinthians 12, 13, & 14, Galatians 5:22-23
  • In the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death (end of life).  Deuteronomy 30:19, Psalm 139:13-16, Jeremiah 1:4-5, Luke 1:15; 41
  • In fostering love between the brethren, striving to uplift, equip, and embolden our community to advance the restorative work of Messiah’s Kingdom.  Leviticus 19:18, Matthew 22:39, 1 Corinthians 13, Ephesians 4:23-32
  • In the Creation of the Heavens and the Earth in six days followed by a Sabbath of rest on the seventh day.  We observe the seventh day Sabbath as the first of the feast days as established by YHWH.  Genesis 2:1-3, Exodus 20:11, Luke 4:16, Acts 13:42
  • In observing the Eternal Biblical Feasts as codified to Moses and all Israel at Sinai.  While we acknowledge and appreciate various calendars, we follow the Jewish calendar which enhances unity and maximizes fellowship in keeping of the feasts, allowing for the greatest amount of participation in the annual cycles.  Leviticus 23, Acts 18: 19-21 (KJV), 1Corinthians 5:8
  • In mikvah (water immersion) as an outward sign of an inward change brought forth by The Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit).  Jeremiah 17:13, Mark 1:1-5, Acts 8:34-38, Romans 6:1-6
  • In the Marriage Covenant between one man and one woman as biologically designed by our Creator at birth.  Genesis 2:18-24, Proverbs 5:15-19, 1Timothy 2:2, Hebrews 13:4a
  • In the restoration of the Two Houses (Ephraim and Judah) into the whole house of Israel and all twelve tribes to The Land of Israel as promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  Jeremiah 50:4-5, Ezekiel 37:15-28, Romans 11:26
  • In observing the dietary laws by eating kashrut (biblically clean).  Leviticus 11, Deuteronomy 14, Isaiah 66:15-17, Acts 15: 20-21, Revelation 18:2
  • That the Heavenly Father’s set apart holy name is YHWH and our Savior’s name is Y’shua, which in Hebrew means YHWH’s Salvation.  Exodus 3:15, Proverbs 30:4, Matthew 1:21, Philippians 2:9-11
