LoveIsrael's Statement of FAITH
We believe the Bible, contained in the 66 books of the Tanakh and New Covenant writings (i.e. Old and New Testaments), is the authoritative Word of G-d, inspired by the Holy Spirit, and is without error in their original autographs.
We believe in one G-d, the G-d of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Who is the Creator of the heavens and the earth.
We believe that G-d exists in three distinct persons, G-d the Father, G-d the Son, and G-d the Holy Spirit, and that each member of the Trinity is eternal and absolute G-D.
We believe that Yeshua (Jesus) of Nazareth is the Messiah (Christ) of G-d foretold by the Biblical prophets.
We believe that Yeshua is the 2nd Person of the Trinity, G-d the Son, Who exists eternally and came to earth as G-d in the flesh.
We believe Yeshua was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born through Miriam, a virgin, and lived a life without sin.
We believe Yeshua died on the cross for the sins of the world, was buried for 3 days and 3 nights, and was physically raised from the dead by G-d the Father.
We believe that after His resurrection Yeshua appeared to over 500 witnesses, and after 40 days ascended back to heaven, where He is currently seated at the right hand of the Father, as our Great High Priest.
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit Who indwells and works through the Believer, according to various gifts.
We believe that G-d created the heavens and the earth in six 24-hour days and rested the 7th day, about 6000 years ago.
THE CREATION of MAN
We believe that G-d created man in His image and in His likeness, and He created only two genders – male and female.
We believe marriage is only between one man and one woman for life.
The CONDITION of MAN
We believe that every person is spiritually dead in their sin and must be spiritually born again to be saved and inherit everlasting life in the Kingdom of G-d.
SALVATION - REDEMPTION
We believe faith in Yeshua’s redemptive sacrifice is the ONLY way man can be born again and saved from the wrath of G-d and eternal torment – salvation is not by works.
The CHURCH - BODY of CHRIST
We believe the Body of Messiah (i.e. the Church) is composed of both Jews and Gentiles who have entered into the New Covenant through faith in Yeshua.
We believe G-d’s instructions (i.e. the Torah) are still relevant and applicable for all Believers today. However, it is not possible for the law (The Torah) to be kept fully in this present age.
We believe the Sabbath is on 7th day of the week.
The JEWISH PEOPLE
We believe that the Jewish people are the rightful owners of the Land of Israel through a Biblical covenant. There is spiritual significance to the reestablishment of the nation of Israel in 1948.
We believe in the blessed hope (i.e. the rapture) of believers, which will occur before the wrath of G-d begins.
We believe at the end of the final seven years (Daniel’s 70th week), Yeshua will physically return to the Mount of Olives with His saints, establish His Millennial Kingdom on earth, and will rule and reign from Jerusalem for one thousand years.
FINAL RESURRECTION and JUDGEMENT
We believe after the one-thousand-year reign of Messiah, there will be a resurrection of the dead and final judgement at the Great White Throne.
We believe that after the Great White Throne Judgement, G-d will establish the New Heavens and New Earth, (i.e. the New Jerusalem) where all believers will dwell with G-d for eternity in His Kingdom.
