Worship Service: Shabbat at 10:30, 43 Meir Rutberg Rd, Haifa, Israel

Beit Eliahu

A. The Scriptures: The Scripture include only the Tanach (Old Testament) and the New Testament. They are final and absolute authority in all areas of faith and life of the believer. They were written in the Spirit of God, and there is no mistake in the original manuscripts.

B. God: “The Lord our God, the Lord is one.” The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is the one and only God and Creator. There is none besides Him and all the special qualities attributed to God are His alone. In His special unity are the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit: each of whom are eternal and fully divine God. The Son, our Messiah, who was born sinless of the virgin Mary, is also fully man in the complete meaning of the word.

C. Man and Sin: God created man in His image and likeness to obey him forever. Adam and Eve sinned when they violated the commandments of God, and because of this sin, all men are sinners. The result of sin is separation from God, a punishment that applies to all members of the human race.

D. Atonement and salvation: God always provided to mankind some means of atonement. The sacrifices in the Tanach symbolized the one and only atonement which propitiates the wrath of God, which was provided for us in the death of the Messiah. This death is the full and complete atonement for sin. Its acceptance by God is proven by the resurrection of Yeshua from the dead. Every Jew or Gentile who repents of his sins and trusts in Yeshua is saved by the grace of God. This grace brings mankind to love God and obey Him forever.

The Holy Spirit has an essential role in the process of a person's recognition of God's holiness, his need for salvation, and in the salvation itself which is provided by the Messiah. The work of the Holy Spirit is also essential in the process of repentance and faith, as well as the gradual process during which the believer is sanctified more and more.
E. People of God: The children of Israel are God's chosen people and He loves them with an everlasting love. God continues to fulfill all the promises given to the patriarchs.

The body of Messiah is composed of Jews and Gentiles who trust in the one God and in His Messiah for the forgiveness of their sins. Both the Jews and the Gentiles are partners, without having to lose their national identity, in the spiritual promises that God gave to the children of Israel, and they are both equal before him.
F. End Times: Yeshua the Messiah will return to establish the Kingdom of God, raise the dead to life, and determine the eternal destiny of each person. He will forever bless those who believe in Him and forever punish the wicked.
