Adat Y'shua Ha Adon:
STATEMENT OF FAITH
~ We believe ~ that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are
divinely inspired, verbally and completely inerrant in the original
writings, and of supreme and final authority in all matters of
faith and life.
~ We recognize ~ the value of traditional Jewish religious literature,
but only where it is supported by, or conformable to, the Word
of God. We regard it as in no way binding upon life or faith.
~ We believe ~ in one sovereign God, existing in three persons: Father,
Son and Holy Spirit, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom,
unbounded in power, and measureless in love; and that God is the
source of all creation and that, through the immediate exercise
of His power, all things came into being.
~ We believe ~ that God the Father is the author of eternal salvation,
having loved the world and given His Son for its redemption.
~ We believe ~ that Jesus the Messiah was eternally preexistent and
is co-equal with God the Father; that He took on Himself the nature
of man through the virgin birth, so that He possesses both divine
and human natures. We believe in His sinless life and perfect
obedience to the Law; in His atoning death, burial, and bodily
resurrection, ascension into heaven, high priestly intercession,
and His personal return in power and glory.
~ We believe ~ that the Holy Spirit is co-equal and co-eternal with
the Father and the Son; that he was active in the creation of
all things, and continues to be so in providence; that He convicts
the world of sin, righteousness and judgement; and that He regenerates,
sanctifies, baptizes, indwells, seals, illumines, guides and bestows
His gifts upon all believers.
~ We believe ~ that God created Man in His image; but that because
of the disobedience of our first parents in the Garden of Eden,
they lost their innocence and both they and their descendants,
separated from God, suffer physical and spiritual death; and that
all human beings, with the exception of Jesus the Messiah, are
sinners by nature and practice.
~ We believe ~ that Jesus the Messiah died for our sins, according
to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice;
that all who believe in Him are justified, not by any works of
righteousness, but by His perfect righteousness and atoning Blood;
and that there is no other name under Heaven by which we must
~ We believe ~ that Israel exists as a covenanted people through
whom God continues to accomplish His purposes, and that the Church
is an elect people in accordance with the New Covenant, comprised
of both Jews and Gentiles who acknowledge Jesus as Messiah and
~ We believe ~ that Jesus the Messiah will return personally in order
to consummate the prophesied purposes concerning His Kingdom.
~ We believe ~ in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust,
the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment
of the lost.
