Messianic Jewish Perspective

While most of the Church teaches from a Replacement Theology perspective, we intentionally teach from the opposite perspective, embracing the Jewish roots of the Christian faith while remaining Gentiles who are grafted in! That means we seek to understand Scripture in the Jewish context in which it was written. We seek to learn from the prophetic revelation that God set in place within the practices and ordinances that He instituted for His people Israel. We also look to God to unite Jew and Gentile as one new man in Messiah Jesus (Ephesians 2:15). While we are not bound to embrace Jewish culture and tradition, we understand that Scripture teaches us much from the Messianic Jewish roots of our faith.
