Doctrinal Statement

 

Organization Profile

Congregation Beikvot HaMashiach (Followers of the Messiah) is an independent, non-profit organization, incorporated in the State of Washington, USA in 1992. Our By-laws and financial statements are available on request. Although we have no formal membership in other organizations, we work with many other congregations and organizations. This site is operated only for the free exchange of information.


Terminology

With all due respect for the natural Seed of Abraham, we build no walls between Jew and Gentile (Ephesians 2:11-14, 4:4-6), but proclaim a Savior (through Abraham) for the whole world; and a worship that is for all who follow Him in faith; and instructions in righteousness (judgments, ordinances, and statutes all three categories of mitzvot) that show us how to love God and our neighbor.

We use the terms Tanach (a Hebrew acronym for Torah, Prophets, Holy Writings) and Apostolic Writings, instead of Old Testament and New Testament. The latter terms are considered misnomers, commonly used to imply outmoded books and replacement books. Biblically, the New Covenant is not a set of books, but a prophetic renewed application of the Abrahamic Covenant between God and His people as found in Jeremiah 31:31.


Distinctive Doctrines

Yahweh Eloheinu (The Lord our God), blessed be His Name, created all things by His Word, sustains all things, and rules over all with unquestionable wisdom, power and love.

The All-wise Creator gave Torah (instruction) to man, beginning with Adam. In love, He chose Israel to bring forth the Messiah and, through the Torah, show Him to the world. The Torah is foundational to the Prophets and Holy Writings (collectively called the Tanach), and the Tanach is foundational to the Apostolic Writings. Apart from the Tanach, the Apostolic Writings cannot be properly interpreted, understood, or used.

The Tanach and Apostolic Writings (collectively called the Holy Bible) were brought to the world through Israel, to lead men of all nations to the Messiah. Yeshua the Nazarean is that Messiah, the very image of God, the Torah become flesh (the Word, which is God, became flesh as Yeshua), and the only savior of men. He came to earth by supernatural conception and birth, was crucified, resurrected the third day, ascended bodily into the heavens, and will bodily return, all perfectly fulfilling multiple prophecies of the Tanach.

The commandments are to all the standard for glorifying God, and can only be kept through the power of the Holy Spirit. The eternal Sabbaths and festivals are prophetic and memorial, to keep Messiah always before us. Special gifts of the Holy Spirit (healings, foreign languages, etc.) are temporal tastes of future glory, and are not guaranteed to anyone for now.

God has determined our form (gender, race, abilities, etc.), and we are to glorify Him with all of our hearts, minds, and bodies, and love one another. We can claim no "rights" before Him. We specifically denounce today's rampant idolatrous acts of: greed for possessions and power; pornography, fornication, homosexuality and abortion; drunkenness and recreational drug use; profanity and dishonesty.

All men have fallen short of glorifying the Holy God. By the life-giving Spirit of God, through faith in Messiah, they may find forgiveness (justification), repentance and moral growth (sanctification), and resurrection to perfection (glorification). These faithful, who are chosen by God before they are born, have the promise of eternal life on a New Earth under Yeshua our Messiah Prophet, Priest and King.

 

Our chief purpose is to praise our creator through faith and obedience, which are inseparable.

Toward this end, we meet together to mutually study the Bible, seeking to grow in our understanding of God's way; we sing His praise, and edify and uphold one another as God enables us. We observe God's appointed Sabbaths and festivals, emphasizing their messianic significance to all generations.

We take our commission to be that we should be a light to the world, both Jew and gentile.
