Who we are
We are a congregation of Messianic believers, regardless of ethnic background, who choose to maintain the Hebrew culture from which the Bible came. Our Mission here at Chavurah Shalom is to present Yeshua as the Messiah, the only means of salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Gentile, Romans 1:16. Our heart is to focus upon Yeshua as the author and finisher of our faith, and seek to live life as He lived life, 1 John 2:6, 1 Peter 2:21. Our teaching ministry is to present the whole word of God in its original context.
Ours is an Elder led congregation, with five elders, along with a teacher, a Rabbi to lead in spiritual growth and development.
Our current leadership consists of Rabbi John Giddens, Jerry McGinn, Frank Tatum, Brad Holmes, Brett Smith, and James Meacham.
Messianic Worship is the completion of the only "worship" that G-d created for His children. He chose the Hebrew people to bring the knowledge of His standards, His grace and His saving power through the Messiah to the world. Messianic worship is the completion, and fulfillment of the development of that faith.
The Messianic believer is one who believes that Yeshua of Nazareth (know in English as "Jesus") is the long awaited Messiah. The permanent, eternal and divine Passover Lamb sacrifice of G-d who gave his life to remove the sins of those who believe in Him and make Him the L-rd of their lives. Messianic believers base their faith and practice on the lifestyle of Yeshua. Although other Halakhah (law, doctrine) may develop, the Scriptures are the basis for our beliefs. We believe the whole Bible, including the Tanakh ("Old Testament") and the Brit Chadasha ("New Testament") is the complete, infallible, Word of G-d in its original languages and manuscripts.
