Statement of Faith of
Metroplex Messianic Fellowship
I. The G-d of Avraham, Yitzchak, and
Ya'akov (Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob) is the one and only G-d.
II. We believe in the beginning was the Word and the
Word was with G-d, and the Word was G-d. We
believe that this Word was manifested in the form of Messiah. We believe
that Y'shua (Jesus) is The promised and prophesied Messiah who came to
redeem mankind and whom will rule as King over Israel in the future coming
Kingdom of G-d. And, we believe it is his Good News that we
are to proclaim.
III. We believe in the inerrancy of scripture as found
in Bereshit (Genesis) through Revelation, and that it holds authority in
IV. We believe that the Torah of Adonai has not been
abolished, and the observance of it is still the valid expression of a
godly faith ... not as a means of salvation, but as the G-d
given path of sanctification. The Torah given to Moshe (Moses) is the same
Torah that Messiah Y'shua has taught us to observe. We are taught not only
to observe it, but to also make disciples in the name of Y'shua The
Messiah and to teach them to live Torah pursuant lives (Matt. 5:16-19).
In addition, we believe that the Torah was meant for
Israel and all Gentiles who join it's commonwealth (Ephesians 2) and take
hold of its covenants (Zechariah 8:23). Any Gentiles joining themselves to
the Israel's commonwealth will be welcomed with open arms and will be
treated as an equal citizen with equal responsibilities and privileges. (B'midbar/Numbers15:15-16)
V. Love and unity.
We will strive to let love and unity overcome when
there is difference in doctrine and practice.
What makes us unique?
We are a Messianic Jewish Congregation that supports a
Torah pursuant life for those believers in Y'shua who have either a Jewish
or a Gentile origin. We also uphold the Biblical standard of patriarchal
leadership within our organization and within our charter. This means that
first and foremost we encourage men within the commonwealth of Israel to
take their rightful roles in Biblical leadership.
We believe this will be re-establishing the good and
perfect will of Adonai; as Y'shua the Messiah established only men to be
one of the twelve Emissaries and leaders within the Messianic community.
In addition, Adonai chose only men to write each book of the Tenakh and
the Apostolic scriptures, and only chose men to be Kohanim (Priests) who
were to teach Israel His Torah.
Only in times when the men of Israel would not take on
their G-d given responsibilities have exceptions been made.
But, it is made clear in scripture that this has always been to the shame
of the men. Any female leadership in Israel (only example being the Judge
Devorah) was the exception, but not the rule. This was allowed because
there were no men who would accept their leadership roles in Israel. Rabbi
Hillel once stated, In a place where there are no men, strive to be a
