We are a body of believers who meet together to commune with and worship the Father, in the Holy Spirit, studying and learning the truths in God's Word, and the Jewish roots of our heritage. We love and support Israel and the nations through prayer and deed. It is our desire to pass the baton of our faith to the next generation, in a community of covenant love under the saving blood of Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
"Now therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief Cornerstone in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a habitation of God in the Spirit."
Ephesians 2:19-22 NKJV
