Introducing the Three Themes of Our Mission

The three themes of our mission are to bring light into the world and glorify Yeshua our Messiah through: Education in the Word, Service in the Community, and Worship in a Jewish-Friendly Context.

Discussing the Importance of the Jewish foundations of Christianity

And it shall come to pass in that day, that the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again rely upon him that struck them; but shall rely upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth. ~ Isaiah 10:20

Education in the Word is an important component of our mission. Many misconceptions of what the New Testament (Brit Chadeshah) writers meant exist because an anti-Jewish mindset was already entering into Christian congregations during the lifetimes of the those writers.

Service in the Community rewards us with some amazing experiences. Meeting an unwed mother who chose to keep her baby, in spite of her homeless condition. Trimming toenails so long they were growing into the bottom of the man’s toes. Speaking words of God’s love to a mother who’s been separated from her son.

Worship in a Jewish-Friendly Context expresses our recognition that Synagogue traditions are based upon the Word of God. We also recognize that a clear understanding of the Torah builds a firm foundation for a Christian experience based upon faith in the promised Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth.

Our Green God:
Responsible Stewardship

We also revealed a new outreach—Our Green God—in July, 2015. The theme is to care for what God cares for. Since we don’t own the earth, but benefit from it, we are held accountable as stewards of God’s great creation.

We prepared handouts on backyard and worm composting and green cleaning. We were mentioned at one of the morning “Responsible Living” classes, so many people came by asking for our green cleaning handout. We also have a new Responsible Stewardship Handbook that explains seven Biblical principles of caring for the earth. The handbook helps believers lead others to Yeshua who are looking for truth and a better way of living in an ever increasingly polluted world.

Wendell engaged 328 people and gave hundreds of handbooks out for free.
