Arrowhead Messianic Congregation embraces the following statements concerning the truth. The Bible is our all-sufficient rule for faith and practice. This Statement of Faith is intended simply as a basis of fellowship among us (i.e., that we all speak the same thing, I Corinthians 1:l0; Acts 2:42, 44). No claim is made that it contains all Biblical truth, only that it covers our need as to these fundamental doctrines. We do not presume to say the phraseology employed in this Statement of Faith is inspired or that it is the final work on Bible truth. However, we are persuaded it is proper and consistent with the Holy Scriptures to “set forth in order a declaration of those things which are most surely believed among us” (Luke 1:1).
The holy scriptures are inspired by God.
There is but one true God.
The “Echad” nature of God is revealed in three persons (commonly known as the Trinity); Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; equal in power and glory.
God spoke into existence the world and all it contains.
God created man in his image.
Though originally created good, man willfully fell into sin, ushering into the world evil and death, both physical and spiritual.
Mankind’s only hope of Redemption is through the shed blood of the Messiah Yeshua. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord and Savior Yeshua.
Yeshua HaMashiach, Adonai Yeshua, is God’s Son; conceived by the Holy Spirit and that He is the “Seed of the Woman” both human AND divine as God promised and that His virgin birth was to be a sign to Israel of his Messiah-ship.
Yeshua led a sinless life, teaching and working miracles; was sacrificed and raised from the Dead; ascended to heaven and intercedes for His people before the Father until His personal return to earth.
There is a present ministry of the Ruach HaKodesh ( Holy Spirit), by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a godly life.
We are instructed to practice the ordinances of Water Baptism by immersion [Tevilah] and the New Covenant Passover [Lord’s Supper].
The Baptism in the Ruach HaKodesh is a special experience following salvation that empowers believers for witnessing and effective service (often evidenced by speaking in tongues).
Sanctification is the will of God for all believers, and should be earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to Gods Word.
The purpose of the Congregation (ecclesia) is to seek and save all who are lost in sin. The Congregation is the body of believers and consists of people who, throughout life, have accepted God’s offer of redemption through the sacrificial death of His Son Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus, the Christ).
The responsibility of each Believer is to lay a foundation of biblical truth and experience upon which he/she builds his/her life.
Jewish (descendants of Abraham through Isaac, whether through the bloodline of the father or the mother) followers of Messiah are called to maintain their Jewish heritage and remain part of the People.
The New Covenant Body of Believers also consists of Gentiles who have accepted Yeshua HaMashiach as the Promised Redeemer of Israel and have been grafted in to the House of Israel; to worship together – Jew & Gentile in unity.
Gifts of the Spirit should be and must be operative in the church to enjoy the fullness of God.
The Five Fold Ministry is to teach and train its people to do the work of the ministry with maturity and unity in mind.
There are those who are chosen by God to a specific work and should be recognized by appointment and ordination to the work.
Divine healing of the sick is a privilege for believers today and is provided for in Messiah’s atonement.
Power or anointing of any other necessary quality can be transmitted from one person to another by the laying on of hands.
We have been granted the authority in the name of Yeshua to bring Deliverance to others.
The First Resurrection, also known as the “Blessed Hope”, is the event where all believers both dead or alive are transformed into their incorruptible bodies.
The second coming of Messiah is to judge all mankind as King of Kings and Lord of Lords and establish His Kingdom on earth with his saints.
Millennial Reign is the thousand year period that Yeshua will reign on earth with His saints.
There will be a Final judgment in which all people not written in the Lamb’s Book of Life will rise and be judged according to their works. Whosoever is not found in the Book of Life will be consigned to complete destruction in the Lake of Fire (the second death).
The Renewed heaven and renewed earth will be revealed after the Millennial Reign where death is defeated and eternity begins.
