Values

1. Provide a community of worship which encourages an ongoing personal relationship with God through the life-changing impact of Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah (Isaiah 53; Romans 3:23-24; John 3:3,5).

2. Create a community where people's lives will be positively changed, through a commitment to teaching of Scripture and its practical application, encouragement, prayer, worship and outreach (Romans 12:1-2; Galatians 5:22-23; 1 Peter 1:13-23).

3. Exist as a congregation, Jewish in style, nature and association. While we live as part of the greater Jewish community, our primary community of faith is amongst believers in Messiah Yeshua, whether Jewish or not.

4. Practice and celebrate Jewish life (e.g. Jewish holidays, Shabbat, bar/bat mitzvah), reflecting God's ongoing covenant with Israel (Exodus 31:16-18; Ezekiel 37:27-28; Isaiah 56:1-8; Romans 14).

5. Deliberately support the State of Israel and the greater Jewish community, as well as believers in Yeshua throughout the world.

6. Provide programs for children and youth which develop their understanding of our beliefs and core values, as well as the growth of their own personal relationships with God (Deuteronomy 6:6-7; Proverbs 22:6).

7. Create a welcome environment for all people, with no division between Jew and Gentile in the life of the congregation (Ephesians 2:14).

8. As a living community of faith, we seek to meet one another's needs, coming together to care for one another in times of joy and sadness (Hebrews 10:23-25).

9. Reach out to the surrounding community, proclaiming the atoning work of Messiah Yeshua and ministering to the physical needs of the community (1 Peter 3:15-16; Acts 4:29).

10. phold Scripture (Hebrew Scriptures & New Covenant (Testament)) as our primary basis of teaching and doctrine (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 3:15-16).
