is a Pro Torah, Spirit-led set-apart Messianic Jewish Synagogue. Messianic Jews believe that nothing is more Jewish than believing in Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah, foretold throughout the Tanakh (Hebrew Scriptures). We believe that the Tanakh and the B'rit Chadashah (Renewed Covenant) which was promised in Jeremiah 31:31-33 are the inspired and infallible Word of God.
God, in His mercy, from before the foundation of the earth, set in motion a plan revealed in the Tanakh, which allows us to have perpetual fellowship with Him. In Hebrew, kippur means "covering." Thus, Yom Kippur is the day the sins of the Israelites became covered through the shed blood of a lamb. After this sacrifice, the Israelites were inscribed in the Book of Life for the ensuing year. God's solution through Messiah is the one-time rather than annual covering of sin through "blood sacrifice." Our Abba (Father) brought forth His Son as Messiah, and allowed Him to be crucified on a "tree" as a substitutionary sacrifice for our sins. This covering of sin through His shed blood enables all who believe in Him to enter into a personal relationship with God (Isaiah 49:6) for all eternity by instantly wiping away all the sins of the world: past, present, and future.
How do we worship
The Scriptures teach several components in the worship of God: prayers, singing, clapping of hands, lifting of hands before God . . . even dancing (Exodus 15:20; Psalms 149:3, 150:4)! Worship was meant to be a joyful experience.
The Word of God
A major segment of each service is devoted to preaching and teaching from the Scriptures. Messianic Judaism is founded on the belief that the Word of God is what draws us into a closer relationship with God, especially when it is read and practiced in the power of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit).
The Spirit of God
BethYeshua is a charismatic Messianic synagogue. We believe in the spiritual gifts taught in the B'rit Chadesha (New Testament) (I Corinthians 12 &14), as they are still in operation today. Beth Yeshua encourages its congregants to draw near to God by practicing the use of these gifts as taught by the Scriptures. We believe these gifts are an avenue for blessing, when practiced "decently and in order" as the Scriptures instruct (I Corinthians 14:40).
