Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations Statement on Yeshua

Yeshua Statement [The following is adopted as a statement of shared convictions which is intended as an introduction for a further discussion of soteriology (the doctrine of salvation). It does not replace or substitute for any part of the UMJC’s doctrinal statement, which is the foundational statement of the UMJC.]

The Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations holds that the One God, the God of creation, the God of Israel, the God of our ancestors, of Whom our tradition speaks, reveals Himself uniquely, definitively, and decisively in the life, death, resurrection, and return of Yeshua the Messiah.

Yeshua is the incarnation of the Divine WORD through Whom the world was made, and of the Divine GLORY through Whom God revealed Himself to Israel and acted in their midst. He is the living Torah, expressing perfectly in His example and teaching the Divine purpose for human life. Yeshua is completely human and completely divine.

As the risen Messiah and the heavenly Kohen Gadol (High Priest), Yeshua continues to mediate God’s relationship to His people Israel, to those of the nations who have joined the greater commonwealth of Israel in Him, and to all creation. God’s plan of salvation and blessing for Israel, the nations, and the entire cosmos is fulfilled only in and through Yeshua, by virtue of His atoning death and bodily resurrection, and God’s gift of life to both Jews and Gentiles, in this world and in the world to come, is bestowed and appropriated only in and through Him.

Affirmed by the UMJC delegates, November 12, 2003.
