- We believe in the authority and sufficiency of the Holy Bible, consisting of the sixty-six books of the Old Testament (Tanach) and New Testament (B’rit Chadashah), as originally written. We believe that the Scriptures are absolutely trustworthy and without error in all matters of which they speak. We believe the Bible to be the true center of unity and the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creed and opinions shall be tried.
- We believe that the Torah (the first five books of the Old Testament) forms the foundation of all Scriptures. If there appears to be a contradiction between two portions of Scripture, we use the Torah to define the meaning of the other. We also follow the principle of “first usage,” aiming to define terms by the first time they appear in Scriptures. However, we acknowledge that there is only an apparent contradiction because we are fallible humans with limited understanding and wisdom; the Scriptures cannot lie nor contradict themselves. For this reason, we seek to show grace and patience with others who may see things differently than we do.
- We believe there is one and only one living and true God, an infinite Spirit, the Creator and supreme Ruler of Heaven and earth.
- We believe that Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth, God’s Son, is the Messiah of Israel. He lived a sinless life by full obedience to the Torah, died in our place to pay the penalty for our sins, rose from the dead after three days, ascended bodily into heaven, and is coming again to establish His eternal kingdom. We believe there is no other Messiah. We are His disciples, and we seek to follow Him in obedience.
- We believe that there is only one People of God, the seed of Abraham through Israel, embodied in all twelve tribes of Israel. We believe that prophecy tells us that all twelve tribes will be united and returned to the Promised Land of Israel, their eternal inheritance and the place where God has chosen to forever place His Name.

- We uphold a Torah-based, premillennial historicist view of end times. This simply means that the events foretold in the book of Revelation have been in the process of being fulfilled, as a scroll unrolls, from the writing of the book by John (after AD 96) until Yeshua the Messiah returns to set up His kingdom with Jerusalem as its capitol.
