Statement of Faith



Etz-Chayim B’Yeshua (Tree of Life In’Jesus) a Messianic Jewish/Gentile Synagogue (Assembly) of believers teaching all aspects of God’s Word including fundamentally:

  • The Bible, both the Tanakh (Old Testament) and the Apostolic Scriptures (New Testament), are the only inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16—17), preferably as much as possible referencing the original languages and texts and utilizing translation examples such as: “New American Standard Bible Updated Version, Lockman Foundation”, “King James Bible”, “Complete Jewish Bible (‘David H. Stern’)”.
  • We believe in one God, as He has revealed Himself in the Scriptures (Deuteronomy 6:4), a unity of One-God in a plurality of three distinct forms: the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit.
  • In the deity of the LORD Yeshua (The Son, English: Jesus), the Messiah, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in his vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His physical bodily resurrection from the grave on the third day, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His physical return to the earth just as He left and ruling over creation, reigning from the throne of David in Jerusalem, we hold to a premillennial view of His return. (John 1:1—14; Colossians 2:9—10; Psalm 2:1—12; Isaiah 7:14; Luke 1:26—35; Matthew 11:4—6; Zechariah 14; Revelation 19-20)
  • That all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of God.
  • That we are permanently saved from sin, regenerated, made a new creation in Yeshua, by grace and not through any work or righteousness on our part but by individually accepting, through faith, Yeshua’s death and resurrection as our only means of salvation, redemption, and reconciliation, fully atoning for our sin through His shed blood. (Ephesians 2:8—9; Romans 5,6, 8:29—39)
  • That a life touched by grace and faith results in the fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22—23) and that-fruit will manifest itself through one’s actions. (James 2:17)
  • That the Spirit of God comforts, teaches, leads, indwells and empowers all whom God regenerates.
  • The spiritual unity and equality of all believers in Yeshua the Messiah. (Ephesians 2:11—22)
  • The continuity of God’s covenants with the Jewish people, that physical people of Israel (Jeremiah 31:35—36 and parallel passages).  Part of the fulfillment of these covenants is the physical return of the Jewish people to their Promised Land. (Deuteronomy 30)
  • That all non-Jewish people who trust in Yeshua are grafted into Israel.  While this does not make them Jewish, they are full and equal participants in the covenants of promise. (Ephesians 2:12; Romans 11:11—24; Jeremiah 31:33)
  • That the Tanach and Apostolic Scriptures are revelation declaring the righteousness of God and a description of the lifestyle of the redeemed. (Matthew 5:17—19; 2 Timothy 3:16—17)
  • Since Messianic Congregations meet on Shabbat (Friday night and/or Saturday mornings) another worship service/s or congregation can meet Sunday (the first day of the week).
