Emet HaTorah takes its inspiration from Ezekiel 34:16 “I will seek the lost, and I will bring back the strayed. . ."
Oh how easy it is to get lost! With our cell phones and iPads, our 24-hour news cycles, there’s virtually nowhere to go for a moment of peace and quiet.
That’s where Emet HaTorah comes in. We provide a holy place of respite in the tumult of life. So come, put aside the cares of the week and find yourself in the presence of God.
Blowing The Shofar in West Texas
We believe that God (YHWH) is the Father and Creator. We believe Jesus (Yahshua) is his son, the Savior, Priest, Prophet and King. It is our belief that salvation comes through faith in Yahshua, and that blessing only comes by obeying the Commandments of YHWH that were given on Mount Sinai to Moses.
We believe that obeying YHWH’s commands is freedom from legalism and the doctrines of man. We teach our brothers in Yahshua to keep the commandments he kept. We believe that all of YHWH’s Sabbaths are forever and are a sign between YHWH and his people. We believe in the restoration of the two houses of Israel and the prophetic teachings of the Old and New Testaments.
We believe that Israelis are the chosen people of YHWH, that we are to be grafted into the Tree (Israel) and that all gentiles can become a part of the commonwealth of Israel by being obedient to the covenants of promise through Yahshua.Many faces, one faith.
These are the goals we try to accomplish as a congregation:
1) To Love God - Yahweh is amazing. He is the creator of Heaven and Earth, but still loves us, and we should love him above all. (Deuteronomy 6:5, Luke 10:27)
2) To Love People - We are all made in God’s image, therefore, if in all we do we are not loving people, we are missing the mark. (Leviticus 19:17-18, 1 John 4:7-8)
3) To Be Biblical—The Bible is Yahweh’s word to us, it should be our guide and standard for everything we do as a congregation). (Joshua 1:8, Psalm 119:105)
4) To be evangelical – Sharing the gospel of Yeshua Messiah with everyone we come in contact with, our family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, city, county, state, nation, and world. (Acts 1:8, Mark 16:15)
5) To be worshipers – We should constantly be expressing our love to God, thanking Him for who He is and what He has done, truthfully communing our spirit with His. (Deuteronomy 6:5, John 4:23 & 24)
6) To be and make disciples – To constantly grow in our knowledge of God and His Holy Word, until we finally see Him face to face. (2 Timothy 2:15, 1 Corinthians 13:12)
7) To do life together – To fellowship and in our strengths and our weaknesses, as the family we are called to be. (Acts 2:46, Philippians 2:2)
8) To unselfishly minister – Realizing that being a servant is the highest calling we can ever receive, because as we serve others, we really serve Him. (Romans 15:1, Matthew 25:37 - 40)
9) To strive to constantly become more and more like the Messiah–Knowing of Him is not enough, we must daily strive to fully know Him and be like Him. ( Leviticus 19:2, Philippians 3:8)
10) To give God all the glory – Everything we do should point to Yeshua (Jesus), and exalt God. (John 3:30, 1 Corinthians 1:31)
