We’re so glad that you found us. HalleluYah!
So; what does our group believe and what do we do?
Well; this is not an exhaustive list, but, as YHWH leads us, we study His Torah, look to the witness and the testimony of Yahushua Messiah and His example, and teach others to do likewise; i.e. walk as He walked. (1Jo. 2:6).
YHWH (pronounced Yahweh), is the Name of our Father in Heaven as revealed in the Hebrew Scriptures. Yahushua is the true Name of His only begotten son. He was never called “Jesus” by His disciples nor those who knew Him during His life and ministry on this earth. The Name Yahushua means “Yahweh’s Salvation” or “Salvation of Yahweh”! Please check out the “Name Study” on this site for further information regarding this fact.
We believe that the Law or Torah of YHWH is perfect (Psalms 19:7), that it is not to be added to nor taken away from (Deu. 4:2), and that Yahushua reaffirmed this. By the very words of Yahushua Messiah we are commanded that we are not even to think (i.e. consider in our minds) that He came to destroy the Law/Torah or the Prophets, but rather "till the HEAVENS AND THE EARTH PASS AWAY one jot or tittle shall BY NO MEANS pass from the Torah, till ALL be done" (Mat. 5:17-18) (Rev. 21:1-8). "By no means" means "by NO means."
We believe also that this is His clear instruction for us to abstain from using Him as the catalyst through which “change” in the Torah/Law would come. Change means, TAKE AWAY the old and ADD something new in its place, (which would by default destroy the old); we are commanded “you do not to add to nor take away from”. Yahushua did not break this command either. After that, according to the witness and the testimony of Yahushua Messiah, He says that people who break even the least of the commands in the Torah and teach others to break, would be called least (of little or no value) in the Reign of the Heavens, (Mat.5:19). We believe that we should walk as Yahushua walked, (1st Jn. 2:6).
We try to avoid all syncretism (mixing with pagan faiths). We therefore practice neither Messianic Judaism nor Christianity. We are of the sect of the Nazarenes, (Acts 24:5). We are Yisra’elites (Israelites) and we are Natsarim (Nazarenes)!
We use only the Set Apart Names of the Father, YHWH, and His Son, Yahushua! Exo. 23:13 says, “And be watchful in all that I have said to you. And make no mention of the name of other elohim (mighty-ones, idols, gods, etc.) neither let it be heard out of your mouth.” So, lest we risk breaking this command, with patience and in love, we educate those who are unfamiliar with the Set Apart Names, that they might become sealed in their foreheads with the Name of the Father of the Lamb! (Rev.14:1) HalleluYah! We do not use familiar pagan names and titles; we believe that to do so is syncretism.
We observe the Sabbath/Shabbat of YHWH (sundown at the end of the 6th day through sundown on the 7th day), and we do not buy or sell on the Shabbat; it is Set Apart. We keep the Appointed Times of YHWH, (Pesach/Passover, Chag Matzos/ Feast of Unleavened Bread, Shavuot/Pentecost, Yom Kippur/Day of Atonement, Yom Teruah/ Day of Trumpets, and Chag Sukkot/ The Feast of Tabernacles).
We observe the dietary laws, (Lev. 11 Due. 14).
We wear the tzitziyot (tassels) as YHWH commanded, (Num. 15: 38-40). Please check out, “Why do We Wear the Tzi-tzit (Tassels)” study on this site.
We believe that the “lost tribes” migrated to Europe and the “Christian nations”. And we believe in the restoration of the “Two Houses” (Yahudah/Judah and Yisra’el/Israel. (Eze. 37: 16-25).
Yahushua said that there are men who love… to be called rabbi, “But you must not be called rabbi, (father or teacher)”; (Mat 23:8-10), we view men that fall into these categories with skepticism.
We believe that Ministers of the “Good News” should serve without being paid for their services. Yahushua said, “You have received without paying, give without being paid” (Mat. 10:7-9). Neither Yahushua nor His followers ever received a check from headquarters or the Congregations in which they preached. We view men that fall into these categories with skepticism.
We believe that Scripture forbids the mixing of diverse seed (i.e. varieties of the species), whether plant, animal, or human, and that being “grafted in”, in no way does away with this prohibition for humans. We do however believe that YHWH is an Elohim to all nations and that all people can be grafted into Yisra’el! HalleluYah!
We believe in the Renewed Covenant and we believe on Yahushua.
We love the truth! We do not beat people over the head with it; neither do we water it down! It is YHWH that convicts the heart. We try to present it with love, but we present it just the same, lest we offend YHWH! We are watchmen, (Eze.33)!
We do not claim to know it all; far from it! We are on a journey to learn; we are not at the final destination. Let us see what YHWH will teach us!
We sing, we praise, we blow the shofar, we dance, we pray, we study, we fellowship, we encourage, and much, much more! We love people, we love the Torah of YHWH, we love Yahushua, and above all we love, serve, and esteem YHWH All Mighty! HalleluYah!
