BELIEFS

ONE ELOHIM

There is only one Almighty Elohim (God), our Heavenly Father; He is the Elohim of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; Yah our Elohim is one and He is spirit; He is neither a man, nor a son of man.

HE HAS A NAME

Although He is called by many titles our Heavenly Father has given us his one proper name, יהוה (commonly pronounced "Yahweh," "Yahuwah," or "Yehowah"), and He desires that we call him by His name.

ONE MESSIAH

Yeshua of Nazareth, son of David, son of Abraham, is the Messiah prophesied throughout the Hebrew scriptures and the only begotten Son of Yah our Elohim; through an obedient faith in him we have direct access to the Father; he is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and only through an obedient faith in him can one obtain eternal life; he is the head of the assembly, high priest of the true temple, and the mediator between Yah and man; All power and authority has been given to the Son by the Father and in the end all will be handed back to the Father and the Son himself will also be put into subjection to the Father, so that the Father may be all in all.

TORAH IS THE WAY

We are to follow the perfect example of Yeshua the Messiah by obeying the Law (Torah) as written in the Five Books of Moses and confirmed by the prophets.  It is perfect; it is the law of liberty; it makes us wise, and it is truth.  None of the commandments, statutes, and/or judgments in the Torah have been abolished or done away with but are still fully operative today.  Certain commandments, statutes, and judgments, although still fully operative, have been fulfilled in Messiah Yeshua, such as animal sacrifices for sin.  The Torah tells us what sin is and to break the Torah is sin and lawlessness.  There are many blessings and rewards for obeying the Torah and there are many penalties for not.

Although there are many instructions and commands contained within the Torah, we find the following especially important: The "Ten Commandments" including the Sabbath, the clean and unclean food laws, and the annual holy days and festivals​.  We observe the fourth commandment, the seventh-day Sabbath, not because it brings salvation by its observance, but because it pleases our Heavenly Father and is a fruit of our salvation. He set apart that day - Friday at sunset to Saturday at sunset - and made it holy.  It is for our good.

 Obedience to the Torah by itself does not bring salvation, but rather it shows our love for Yah by obeying His commands and following in the footsteps of Yeshua.
