TEMPLE YESHUA

 

STATEMENT OF FAITH

 

WE BELIEVE:

 

There is one true God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of Israel, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

In the virgin birth of Jesus/Yeshua, the Messiah, as God and Man, His sinless humanity and perfect life, the eternal all sufficiency of His atoning death, that He, by the grace of God, tasted death for every man and that all must repent and be born again through personal faith in His shed blood or be lost forever.

The Holy Scriptures are the divinely inbreathed, infallible, and inerrant Word of God and that they are the supreme and final authority in faith and practice. 

In the bodily resurrection of Yeshua/Jesus, His ascension to the Father’s right hand and His personal coming again to reign in His Kingdom here on earth from Jerusalem.

We are justified only by faith in Jesus/Yeshua, our Messiah, and this faith is a free gift from God our Father given on behalf of his Son.

In water baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit, in the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the gifts and the fruit of the Holy Spirit and the Lord’s Supper.

In the everlasting blessedness of the redeemed in heaven and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost in hell.

By His divine election and grace, the gifts and the call of His people Israel are irrevocable and theirs is the adoption as sons, theirs the divine glory, the covenants, the receiving of the law, the temple worship, the promises, the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of Christ who is God overall, forever praised.

Yeshua/Jesus, the King of the Jews, is a light for revelation to the Gentiles and is the glory of and brings glory to His people Israel.

Through the Gospel, Jewish believers and non-Jewish believers, as joint heirs, are members together of one body, God’s household, built on the foundation of the apostles and the prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone.  In Him, as sharers together in the promise, the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord in which God lives by His Spirit.
