Shalom! Welcome to "Messianic Jews"!

This is a club for anyone who is ethnically Jewish, and believes that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah, the Son of God (or anyone who is the spouse of a Jewish believer).

Though this club is specifically for Jews who are part of the Messianic Jewish Movement, we also accept Christian Jews who want to connect with other Jewish brothers in Messiah. Here, we can discuss such topics as the purpose of the people of Israel, Jewish evangelism, the relationship between Jews and Gentiles in the Body of Messiah, the keeping of Torah, etc.

May ADONAI bless you and keep you, in the Name of our Master Yeshua!

The purpose of Messianic Jews:

And he said to me, "You are my servant, Israel, in whom I will be glorified.... It is too light a thing that you should be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob and to bring back the preserved of Israel; I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth."
Isaiah 49:3&6, cf. Acts 13:47 (ESV)


Statement of Faith:

We believe that the whole of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation, is the divinely inspired Word of God -- infallible and inerrant in its original manuscripts, complete and solely authoritative for the believer in all areas of life, religious and non-religious.

We believe in one eternal God, perfect and holy, who is the Creator of everything, and who has revealed Himself to us through His creation generally and through His Word specifically.

We believe that God created man in His own image, for His glory, and because of this, we believe in the sanctity of all human life, from the moment of conception until its natural end. We believe that He created us male and female, and that gender is therefore an unchangeable, God-given attribute. We believe that one man and one woman is the basis of and only acceptable form of marriage (Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6), and any intimate relations outside this context is sinful.

We believe that man is separated from God by his own sin and is incapable of turning to Him and being saved, apart from the unmerited favor (grace) of God. We believe that the price of sin is death, and eternal torment in a literal hell.

We believe that God, in His great love, established a plan to reconcile mankind to Himself. To that end, He chose the people of Israel as His own possession (Deuteronomy 26:18-19), calling them with an irrevocable call (Romans 11:29), and promising that the whole earth would be blessed through them (Genesis 12:1-3; 26:2-4; 28:13-14). We believe that the Messiah, who brought reconciliation both for Israel and for the world, came through the Jewish people.

We believe that God sent to us His one and only Son, Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah, who is Himself both fully man and fully God, and who is One with the Father. We believe in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His death that paid the price for our sins through His blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His rising up to the right hand of the Father, and in His promised return to reign in power and glory.

We believe Yeshua is the only road to salvation, the one Mediator between God and man, and that belief in Him is the only way to receive the free gift of eternal life.

We believe that God's Holy Spirit indwells the believer, sealing and renewing him and enabling him to lead a godly life according to His will and His Word. We believe that by His Spirit He sets apart believers and unites them into His spiritual Body on the earth: the Called-Forth (ekklesia, "Church").

We believe in the coming physical return of Yeshua, the resurrection of the dead, the judgment of all mankind, the new heaven and new earth, and the end of the age, when the righteous in Yeshua will praise and glorify God in His very presence forever.
