OUR EMUNAH (FAITH)

We at Worldwide Ministry Elohei Kedem and our Congregation: Kehila Elohei Kedem, follow the following guidelines of emunah (faith):

We believe that we are Jews by faith by the promise given to Abraham (Romans 4:9-11;) Galatians 3:29)), and strict observant of the Torah (Joshua 1:8), fulfilling all the commandments and ordinances and decrees given by “YHWH: the one true Elohim” (a single unit), urging others to comply with them.

1- Elohim: We believe in the one and only living Elohim. the Elohim of Avraham, Yitzchak, and Ya’akov (Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob) the Creator of heaven and earth (Bereshit 1 and 2), who is eternally existent in a single unity revealed in the Shema: “Hear O Israel, Adonai is our Elohim, Adonai is one (echad) .” . We believe that the name, YHWH, derived from the Hebrew letters, Yod, Hey, Vav, Hey, is the covenantal name of the Holy One of Israel (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 11:1-2, Isaiah 61:1-3, Luke 4:18-21, John 17:21-24). There is only one Elohim eternally existent and beside him there is no saviour. (Isaiah 43:10-11 ).

2- We believe the Law of Moses as a rule of life has been fulfilled in Messiah, but not eliminated. We believe the Torah is the instructions of a loving and gracious Father to His children. It is the perfect law that gives liberty. The Torah it is the loving instruction of how a redeemed people should live. The Torah was given through Moses to the covenant community of Israel. This Torah is the same for the native born of Israel, as it is for those who sojourn among them. The Torah is to be written on the hearts of New Covenant Believers. Honoring Torah is an act of love toward God and our fellow man. Yeshua kept His Fathers commandments and lived in His love. We are to walk as He walked. We are to obey YHWHs commandments and to hold to the testimony of Yeshua (Joshua 22:5, Exodus 12:49, Jeremiah 31:31-33, Hebrews 8:8-10, James 1:25, 1 John 2:3-6, 1 John 3:24, 1 John 5:3;Acts 21:24-26; Romans 6:14;8:2;10:4;14:1-23; 1 Corinthians 9:20; 2 Corinthians 3:1- 11; Ephesians 2:14 ).

3-We believe that Yeshua ben Yoseph  HaNotzri is Israel’s promised Mashiach (Isaiah 11), born of his biological father Yosef, of the lineage of Isai (Isaiah 11: 1-2): . By His life, death and resurrection, He fulfilled the messianic prophecies of the Tanack related to Messiah’s first coming. (Isa. 7:14, 9:6-7, 49:6, 53:1-12; Psa. 16:9-11)

His second coming in the air, as King, to receive the believers to Himself (I Thessalonians 4:13-18; John 14:1-6; I Corinthians. 15:51-57).

We Believe in the Ruach Elohim (Holy Spirit), was sent forth from the Father to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and to regenerate, sanctify and empower for ministry all who believe in Messiah. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Messiah and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide.

4-We believe in the 13 principles of Jewish faith
maimonides  messianic jewish ministry

1.YHWH created and runs the world’s only did, does, and will do all the facts.
2.YHWH, does not make an eartly bodyl (Isaiah 40:18, 25), do not reach the scorporales influence, and nothing is comparable to Him.
3.That the Creator has no body and no form.
4.YHWH is the beginning and eternity (Deuteronomy 33:27).
5.YHWH is worth doing tefilah and no one to ask out of it.
6.All words of our prophets are true.
7.The prophecy of Moshe Rabbeinu is true (Numbers 12: 8) and he was the father of the prophets of all time (Exodus 25:22).
8.The Torah we have is the same that was given to Moshe Rabbeinu (Psalm 119: 18; Numbers 16:28).
9.That this Torah will not be changed and no other Almighty (Deuteronomy 13: 1).
10.YHWH knows everything the person does and knows all his thoughts (Jeremiah 32:19).
11.YHWH reward well those who fulfill their mitzvot and punishes those who transgress its precepts (Exodus 32:32).
12.That the Messiah will come. And although we hope every day delay arrival.
13.The dead will be resurrected when the will of the Almighty.

5-We believe that we are “the lost sheep of the house of Israel” (Matthew 15:24; 10: 5-6).

6-We respect other religious currents, yet we are not ecumenical (2 Corinthians 6: 14-18), or inter-religious.

7-We express love and unconditional support to Israel and to all Jews, and recognize them as the chosen people of God (John 4:22). And We do not proselytize to the jewish people.

 8.-Statement on Marriage, Gender, and Sexuality
We believe that Elohim Elohim (God) wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complementary sexes together reflect the image and nature of Elohim (God) (Gen. 1:26-27). Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of Elohim (God) within that person.
We believe that the term “marriage” has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture (Gen. 2:18-25). We believe that Elohim (God) intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other (1 Cor. 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb. 13:4). We believe that Elohim (God) has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.
We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual or lesbian behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, or use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to Elohim (God) (Matt. 15:18-20; 1 Cor. 6:9-10).
We believe that in order to preserve the function and integrity of Worldwide Ministry Elohei Kedem as the local Body of Mashiach (Christ), and to provide a biblical role model to Worldwide Ministry Elohei Kedem members and the community, it is imperative that all persons employed by Worldwide Ministry Elohei Kedem in any capacity, or who serve as volunteers, agree to and abide by this Statement on Marriage, Gender, and Sexuality (Matt 5:16; Phil 2:14-16; 1 Thess 5:22).
9.-KIndness and Love Toward Others
We believe that Elohim (God) offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Yeshua Ha Mashiach (Jesus Christ) (Acts 3:19-21; Rom 10:9-10; 1 Cor 6:9-11).
We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31). Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the doctrines of Worldwide Ministry Elohei Kedem.
Note: We respect and love to all those who, with sincere love, seek and follow Yeshua the Messiah, to the Jewish people and the State of Israel; but we do not consider us to be Christians or evangelicals or Christians dress like Jews.

We cannot agree with the Organization “Jews for Jesus” because they seek toconvert Jews and assimilate them to Christianity. We have sought the preservation of the Jewish identity.
