Statement of Beliefs

  1. We believe the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is God over all creation. (Deut. 6:4)
  2. We believe God gave His people Torah for the purpose of living a holy life that would bring blessings and connection with Him. (Gal. 3:19)
  3. We believe the “Word” that God spoke in Genesis to create the universe was the same Word that was sent to become flesh. (John 1:1-3 & Col. 1:19-20)
  4. We believe that Yeshua is the prophesied Messiah, the Son of God, sent by His Father for the remission of sin. (1Cor. 15:22 & John 1:29)
  5. We believe that by Yeshua’s life, death and resurrection, He satisfied God’s sacrificial law offering eternal life to all mankind. (Heb. 9:11-12 & Rom. 8:1-2)
  6. We believe Yeshua’s willful death was never intended to do away with Torah or abolished it just because we place our faith in Messiah for the remission of sins. (Romans 3:31)
  7. We believe that in order to be saved we need to repent and confess our sins. (1 John 1:9 & Rom. 6:23)

  10. We believe that the Bible, consisting of the Tanakh (Old Testament) and the Apostolic Writings (New Testament) is the divinely inspired Word of GOD. These in their original language are infallible, inerrant and are the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. (2 Tim 3:15-17)
  11. We believe in the leading and empowerment of the Ruach Ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit) as we exercise his spiritual gifts for the edification of His kingdom. (Gal. 5:22-25 & Isaiah 11:2-3)
  12. We do not embrace the traditions and doctrines of men to set aside God’s instructions. (Lev. 18:30)
  13. We observe and celebrate all the appointed feasts as commanded by God. (Lev. 23:1-44)
  14. We observe Shabbat, as Yeshua did, according to the 4th commandment. (Luke 4:16-17, Lev. 23:3 & Exodus 20:4)
  15. We believe that Messiah will come back to redeem all those who are His. (Eph. 2:12-14)

We at Beth Hallel believe Yeshua Messiah is the Way, the Truth, and the Life,
and we are One in Him. It is critical for spiritual growth to be a part of
a local messianic community of believers.
