“Where there is no vision, the people perish …but the people who know their G-d will display strength and take action.” Proverb 29:18a; Daniel 11:32b
Baruch HaShem Congregation is a Messiah-centered community born out of the Messianic Jewish revival. In order to be a light for Yeshua in the Jewish community, we endeavor to create a contextually Messianic Jewish atmosphere where Jewish believers can follow Yeshua as Jews, and Christians may reconnect with the Jewish roots of their faith. Together, this reconciled Messianic community can witness to G-d’s faithfulness toward the people of Israel and toward the nations.
Our community belongs to G-d: He formed us, He sustains us and we exist for His glory.
Our community is Messiah-centered: “And every day, in the temple and from house to house, they kept right on teaching and preaching Yeshua as the Messiah.”
Our goal through every ministry of this congregation is to exalt and lift up Yeshua as the Messiah, the Son of G-d. His Word, as preached and taught from a Jewish perspective, is the foundation of what we believe.
Our community is family oriented: We believe that the family was instituted by G-d as the basis for passing His heritage and values to the next generation (Deut. 6:7). Together, we form a larger Mishpocha (family) devoted to expressing the love of G-d.
Baruch HaShem Congregation is a fruit of the Messianic revival in the Jewish community. G-d promised that He would revive the house of Israel in Ezekiel 36:24-27. He did so in the days of the Shlichim (Apostles) of the first century as we read in Acts 21:20. Today, He is once more fulfilling His word by bringing revival to the Jewish people as foreseen in Romans 11:25-32.
Our community is contextually Jewish and we encourage our membership to live a Jewish lifestyle because:
Our community is called to reflect the one new man reality of Ephesians 2:11-22. Through the redemption of our G-d given ethnic and national identities, we are set free to mutually bless one another and serve G-d in unity through the realization of “Messiah in you, the hope of glory”. (John 10:16; John 17:22,23, Eph. 1:18, Col. 1:27).
Our congregation undergirds and supports the Towards Jerusalem Council II initiative to repair and heal the breach between Jewish and Gentile believers in Yeshua dating from the first centuries of the Church, doing so primarily through humility, prayer and repentance. (Acts 15, Acts 21:17-26, Rom. 11:29, Rom. 11:11-24, 2 Cor. 5:18-21, Eph. 2:11-16) We have been given the ministry of reconciliation. (2 Cor. 5:18)
Baruch HaShem Congregation stands as a witness to G-d’s loyal love to Israel by raising up a Jewish remnant. This demonstration of G-d’s covenant-keeping faithfulness is central to His plan to redeem and bless the nations (Ezek. 36:23; Luk 2:32; Rom. 11:12,15). We are called to be a house of prayer for all the nations. (Isa. 56:7, Matt. 21:13)
(Psa. 127:1; Eph. 2:10; Eph. 4:11-16)
The building up of the Body of Messiah (Eph. 4:12). “from [Messiah] the whole body according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love.”
Each individual brings unique gifts and talents to the local Body. We encourage our members to develop and use these G-d given talents to edify the congregation and to foster the Kingdom of G-d. This service takes place through various ministries:
Shabbat Worship Services: The weekly cycle culminates with the celebration of Shabbat, a day of rest, worship and meditation on G-d’s word; a time to refocus and follow Yeshua, the L-RD of Shabbat.
Jewish Holidays: Our community celebrates Jewish holidays and the Biblical feasts of Israel, recognizing their historical importance and prophetic significance in pointing to the Messiah and His kingdom.
Lifecycle: In obedience to the Scriptures and in honor of the tradition of our fathers, we observe the various seasons of life through b’rit milah (circumcision), bar and bat mitzvah, weddings under the chupah, and other rites. These are gifts from G-d which help us to implement His ways in our everyday lives.
Education: In seeking the continuance of our spiritual heritage, our priority is to train up our children in the way they should go, from nursery through adulthood. Our Jr. Shabbat program, bar and bat mitzvah training, youth group, Bible studies and Yeshiva are a few of the ways through which we realize our vision.
Family Life: Chaverah fellowship, family Torah study, men’s and women’s meetings, marriage seminars, singles’ group, and summer camp are ways in which we support family life. Strong families, focused on G-d’s way result in strong congregations that render powerful service to the L-RD.
