Tell the Good News of Yeshua
God has invited us to a ministry reconciling all people to Himself by preaching the gospel (the power of God for salvation) to all creation. (2 Corinthians 5:18, Romans 1:16) As the Father does not desire that anyone should perish, we have a commission and obligation to preach the gospel that all may hear and have the opportunity to accept the saving work of Yeshua by faith. (2 Peter 3:9, Mark 16:15)
Make Disciples of All Nations
Yeshua commissioned us to make disciples of all nations, baptize them, and teach them to obey the Scriptures. (Matthew 28:16-20) Accepting Yeshua as Savior is enough for salvation, but we also desire to see people grow in their faith and have a great impact in the Kingdom of God. (Ephesians 2:8-9) Beit Tikvah seeks to disciple people to obey the commandments of Yeshua and to embrace all of Scripture.
Go to the Lost Sheep of Israel
God loves His chosen people, and desires for Israel to be saved. But how can they be saved unless we are committed to sharing the gospel with them? (Romans 11) We can demonstrate that a Jewish person does not have to give up their national identity in order to be a follower of Yeshua, the Jewish Messiah.
Provide Hebraic Context for the Church
There is blessing in embracing all that God offers through His Word. False teachings claiming that God has forsaken the Jewish people and that the Church has replaced Israel have led to a history of antisemitism by and in the Church. As a Messianic community, we exist to help guide the greater Church from a history of anti-semitism, replacement theology, and ignorance to an appreciation and acceptance of God’s work through the Jewish people. We also can exemplify to the church God’s heart for Jews to know Yeshua as their Jewish Messiah. (Matthew 5:18)
