By presenting the Gospel in a culturally Jewish context, we seek to reach Jewish friends, relatives and neighbors with the message of salvation.
(Romans 1:16, 1 Corinthians 9:19,20)
In accordance with Messiah’s “Great Commission,” we seek to train obedient disciples of Yeshua who are fully engaged in the Messianic Body, and who are investing their spiritual gifts, abilities and resources in service to our congregation and our community.
(Matthew 28:18-20; Ephesians 4:11-16)
We will strive to produce an expanding network of havurot, (“cell groups” of 5-10 people each) in an effort to provide a setting for personal caring, healthy accountability, deepening relationships and lay ministry opportunities.
(Acts 2: 42-47)
For reasons important to both Jewish and Gentile believers in our congregation, we will seek to preserve the Messianic testimony. Jewish congregants who cherish their Biblical heritage and cultural identity will purpose to express and transmit their faith in the context of their identity. Gentile congregants who find meaning in the Jewish roots of Christianity will also endeavor to preserve this unique testimony. Thus, with a view toward maintaining our cultural link with the past, thereby demonstrating the faithfulness of God in preserving the Jewish Remnant, we will strive to impart a Messianic vision to the next generation.
(Proverbs 29:18a; Romans 11:5)
