How does the Messianic form of religious faith differ from mainstream Christian belief? In a true sense, it is a return to a "whole Bible" basis for belief and worship. The New Testament, comprised of just 27 books, was never to be considered as a "replacement" for the Tenach, or Old Testament, nor are the New Testament writings the sole basis of our faith. The New Testament apostles refer to the Old Testament hundreds of times in explaining the basis of belief and doctrine. Nor has the Old Covenant been completely "abolished" in the New Covenant. It is instructive that the word "New" in Biblical Greek means a refreshed, revised, or "better" covenant. (Heb. 7:19, 22; 8:6; 12:24) Just as a butterfly does not represent an abolishing of his former self (the caterpiller), but a transformation, so too the New Covenant represents a transformed and improved form of the Old, firmly based and built upon the same original Biblical principles. (Heb. 7:12) We have more Messianic teaching available...
What is the Messianic view on Biblical Torah (Old Testament law)? We uphold New Testament teaching and "establish the law" (Rom. 3:31), believing that "not one jot or tittle" is removed for the believer (Matt. 5:17-19). However, under the New Covenant there is a transformation of law (Heb. 7:12). Yah's commands represent principles and precepts for us under the New Covenant, which has been called a "preceptive" view of Torah. Read more about God's
law and the New Covenant...

Hebrew Worship on Saturdays: Doors Open at 1:30 PM:
Here is a brief outline of how we worship our Heavenly Father together each Saturday Sabbath. Please note that all times are approximate.
1:30 PM, Worship begins for our early arrivals with a short "warm up" music service and testimonies of Yah's blessings, grace, and good works in our midst.
2:15 PM, The "Torah Kids" portion of the service, in which the youth of our Assembly are invited to gather together to read the weekly portion of the Word of Yah before the Assembly.
2:30 PM, the preaching of the Word of Yah begins in an interactive Bible Study format in which all who wish to do so may participate in the reading of the Scriptures. Our worship is always Scripturally-based and in-depth to help you understand Yah's Word as it applies to our lives.
3:30 PM, Messianic music and congregational singing.
5:00 PM, Congregational prayer rounds out the service.
5:30 PM (?), Oneg (fellowship meal) follows the worship service.
All are welcome and encouraged to attend! You may join us for all, or any portion of our afternoon worship service, and feel free to come and go as you wish. You will find no criticism or disapproval if you want to attend only a portion of the service. We are here to joyfully praise Yah our Heavenly Father and to encourage and uplift one another as we seek to grow in knowledge and obedience to His Word. Come join us -- you will be glad you did!
There is never any charge to attend any of our worship services or Oneg meals.
