What We Believe


We believe in the One true Divine El of Israel, the Almighty Elohim of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. His name in Hebrew is YHWH, often written "Yahweh" or "Yahuah" and means the Everliving One.

The Bible

The Scriptures are the divine revelation and revealed Will of YHWH, focusing on His Son, Yahushuah (called in mainstream religion "Jesus Christ").

The Messiah

Yahushuah is the Son of our Heavenly Father (YHWH). He was the giver of Torah and is the fulfillment of Torah. He is the only way of salvation for mankind. (Acts. 4:12) See our list of Messianic prophecies.

The Holy Spirit

The Ruach ha'Kodesh, or Holy Spirit, has the essence, power, and mind of YHWH, and makes believers begotten children of the Kingdom of YAH.


Man has no hope for eternal life within himself. He is dependent upon the grace of the Savior and redeemer to be saved. This is done by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in the mind and soul of man.

The Everlasting Kingdom

The Kingdom of Elohim is an everlasting kingdom based upon the Sovereignty of Yah as its King. The kingdom of Yah will eventually encompass the whole of creation. (Rom. 8:20-21; Rev. 5:13)

Divine Laws

Yah's laws are Spiritual, everlasting, merciful, righteous, and holy. The laws of Elohim are the true liberation of men upon the earth. We must live by every Word of Yah. (Luke 4:4) Yah's Divine law applies to us living today under the New and Better Covenant.

The Gospel

The duty of believers is to carry the Gospel message, or Good News, to all nations, kindreds, and tongues. This message consists of the truth of: a) Yahushuah's literal return to reign on this earth; b) the grace and justification of Yah; c) sanctification or holiness through His Word and Spirit. d) Yahushuah is the only Savior of mankind.
