OUR SYNAGOGUE

Our Vision: We exist to be a Yeshua-centered, Torah-pursuant community of believers, both Jewish and non-Jewish.
Our Mission:
Our goal is to share the entirety of G-D's Word, which is made up of the Tanakh and Brit Chadashah, with all peoples from all nations. Our example is that of our Messiah Yeshua and His talmidim. Our faith is Biblical Judaism, which is the faith handed down to us by G-D through His chosen people, beginning with G-D's covenant with Adam, Avraham, the Sinai Covenant and completing it with the Brit Chadashah, or Renewed Covenant. We find it totally consistent to be followers of Judaism and the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua.
 
We fulfill our goal by sharing these truths with people from the Jewish community, the Christian community, people from other faiths, and with people who have no faith system at all.
We Believe:
That the Holy Scriptures, consisting of the Tanakh and the later writings commonly known as the Brit Chadashah (Renewed Covenant), is the only infallible and authoritative Word of G-D. We recognize its divine inspiration and accept its teachings as our final authority in all matters of faith and practice (Deuteronomy 6:4-9; Proverbs 3:1-6; Psalms 119:89, 105; Isaiah 48:12-16; Romans 8:14-17; II Timothy 2:15, 3:16-17).
G-D:
There is only one G-D (Deuteronomy 6:4). He is the Creator of heaven and earth, of all living beings and of everything both visible and invisible (Genesis 1:1; Colossians 1:15-17). Although He is limitless in power, authority, time, matter and space. He has chosen in His infinite wisdom, to reveal His nature to humanity in perceivable and comprehensible manners.  Read More 

WHAT IS MESSIANIC JUDAISM

Messianic Judaism is an expression of faith in Yeshua (Jesus) that combines the lifestyle and heritage of Judaism with the New Covenant teachings of Yeshua as the only provision for salvation from sin and G-d’s New Covenant as prophesied in Jeremiah 31.

We recognize that Jewish people (physical descendants of Abraham through Isaac and Jacob, whether through the mother's or the father's blood-line) who place their faith in Israel's Messiah, Yeshua, continue to be Jewish according to the Scriptures (Romans 2:28-29). Gentiles who place their faith in Yeshua, are "grafted into" the Jewish olive tree of faith (Rom. 11:17-25) becoming spiritual sons and daughters of Abraham (Gal. 3:28-29). We observe and celebrate the Biblical Holy Days given by God to Israel, with their fulfillment in and through the Messiah Yeshua. We believe that true "Biblical Judaism," the faith of first century believers, which we seek to practice, acknowledges the continuity of faith in the one true God, revealed throughout the Scriptures, and ultimately manifested in God's Son, Yeshua the Messiah. We believe that salvation has always been "by faith," and that works of law, or righteous acts, have never saved anyone (Gen. 15:6; Rom. 2-6; Eph. 2:8-9; Heb. 11:6, 39). We acknowledge that the New Covenant body of believers is composed of both Jews and Gentiles who have received Yeshua the Messiah as the Promised Redeemer. The "middle wall of partition" has been broken down and now we worship the God of Israel together (I Cor. 12:13; Eph. 2:13-14).

What to Expect

Although we have many events each week, our 10:00 am Shabbat service is Brit Ahm’s main family worship gathering. We are aware that our first time visitors come from a variety of faith backgrounds, so we expect that you will have questions about our service and family. With this in mind, we have answered some of the most common questions below.

Dress: We encourage everyone who attends to dress both comfortably and modestly. For some, this may be more dressed up, and for others more casual.

How long is the Service: Our main Shabbat service begins at 10:00am and usually runs for between 2 and 2.5 hours in length.

Children: We have a strong passion for families to worship together! So, we strongly encourage children to take part in the entire worship experience, including joining in Dance during praise and worship. Our family expects children to be children until they grow up, so please don’t be concerned about your little one fidgeting or making some noise. We also provide crayons and an activity sheet each week.
