Here you can find resources on how to learn more about Beit Tikvah, Messianic Judaism, and most importantly, Yeshua (Jesus), the Son of God!

When We Meet

From the beginning, God instituted the Seventh Day as a day of rest--shabbat. We keep this commandment by continuing to celebrate the biblical sabbath on the seventh day of the week: Saturday.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What is a Messianic congregation?

At its core, a Messianic congregation celebrates the Jewishness of our Christian faith in Jesus (Yeshua). It may be one of the clearest expressions of the One New Man here on earth, where Jew and Gentile worship together within the context of the "commonwealth of Israel" (Eph. 2:11-13). Some of the distinguishing features of a Messianic congregation may include Jewish liturgy and tradition (as long as it does not conflict with our understanding of biblical truth), as well as worship that is Hebraic in nature, incorporating music and dance. We also gather on the biblical sabbath, which falls on a Saturday.

Is there a dress code?

Although you will find most congregants worshiping in business casual attire, do not feel pressured to make yourself uncomfortable. The important thing is that you come with a posture of worship, humility, and reverence for God and His Word.

Why do you use unconventional church terminology?

When you worship with us at Beit Tikvah, you may notice that we use unfamiliar or nontraditional terminology. The reason is the same for why we do not display the cross: it is not that we do not affirm Christian concepts; on the contrary, our use of Hebrew terminology and display of the ark instead of a cross is to bridge the gap between Christianity and Orthodox Judaism. Out of sensitivity to our Jewish brothers and sisters, there are certain expressions of our faith that embrace its Jewish roots.

Rabbi Shaul (the apostle Paul) said, "...to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might win Jews... to the weak I became weak that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men that I may by all means save some" (1 Corinthians 9:19 - 23). At Beit Tikvah we are neither dogmatic nor legalistic (saying you have to do something that is not in the Bible) about terminology. However, we encourage our members to be sensitive to how we present ourselves, our theology, our doctrine, and our tradition.
