Emet HaTorah

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)
