Who We Are
We are a messianic, kingdom and covenant, word-based, Jewish and Gentile, Male and Female intergenerational-family, led through a shared leadership relational model, and being built together as a dwelling place for God's Presence. We are on a journey of living into the joy of knowing and loving the one true God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit as we get more rooted and grounded in their faithful love towards us, and as we mature in love for one another.

As a Spirit-filled, led, and empowered community, we gather from House to House in smaller groups. We also gather for Shabbat services and for the Spring and Fall Biblical Festivals as a New Covenant, Yeshua-centered, salvation-celebrating people! Our heart is to seek first the relational Kingdom of God in His Son and Spirit to reign over, among, and in us according to His promises and purposes and word. Through joyful intimacy with God according to the New Covenant, we seek to live by the Spirit in His fruit and gifts, with God's Word revealed to and through our hearts, so that His will is done on the earth as in heaven! (Col. 1:16; 1 Cor. 10:4; Jn. 8:50:58; Matt. 16:16; Jn. 1:49; Eph. 2:11-22; 3:6-7; Matt. 6:9-15, 33; Rom. 14:17; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; Matt. 5:17-20; 7:21-27; Acts 2:42-47; Eph. 2:20-22; 1 Cor. 3:16; Eph. 3:14-21; Rom. 5:5-8; Jn. 3:16-17; 13:34-35; 15:9-17; Jn. 4:23-24; 14:23; 17:3; Matt 28:17-20; Acts 20:28; 14:23; Lev. 23; Mk. 2:27-3:4; Col. 2:17; Lk. 4:1, 14; Rom. 8:1-4; 13-16; Gal. 5:16, 22-23; Lk. 24:49; Acts 1:8).

Our Vision & Mission
In the power of the Holy Spirit, we are called to show, share, and saturate our community, homes, neighborhoods, workplaces, and wherever we go with the light and joy of the good news of the kingdom of Heaven! The good news is a revelation of God's covenant love and faithfulness to the Patriarchs, to Israel, to David, to all Nations, and for all creation! It is the active power of God to bring redemption, rescue, reconciliation, restoration, transformation, empowerment, and victory over the Evil one for the Jewish people and every nation, people, and tribe, so they can be forgiven and begin to live now in and from His kingdom! For through this kingdom news with it's words and works, we seek to help people become with us an invested family partner in the gospel as a Spirit-filled, led, and empowered disciple who knows, loves, and obeys the Kingdom bringing King who has come and is coming again! ( Jn. 4:23-24; 14:23; Lk. 24:49; Acts 1:8; Ex. 20:1-17; Deut. 5:6-21; Psa; 1: 19:7-14; 119; Matt. 5-7; Lk. 24:27; 44-49; Jn. 5:39-40; 2 1 Tim. 1:9-11; 3:14-17; Eph. 2:1-22; 3:6; Rom. 11; Rev. 7:4-10; Gen. 1-3; Gen. 3:15; 49:10; Ex. 19:6; 20:1-17; 10-11; 12:1-3, 15, 17, 22, Ex. 3:1-15; 6:1-18; 12; 20:1-17; Deut. 5:6-21; 2 Sam. 7:12-16; Psa. 2:6-8; 72; 89; Eze.36:24-38; Jer. 31:31-38 (30-37 TLV); Hebrew 8:8-12; 10:14-18; Lk. 22:20; Jn. 1:1-3; 3:16-18; Gal. 3:8; Matt. 1:1; 21-23; 4:17; Rom. 1:16-17; 11:11-15, 25-32; 8:18-24; Col. 1:19-20; Eph. 1:10; Rev. 20:1-10).

Our Heart For Unity
Essential to our convictions concerning the gospel and the replication of disciples is our avid support for, encouragement of, and teaching that Jewish people who follow their Messiah are to continue to live and identify as Jews in the New Covenant, fulfilling their calling and stewarding their irrevocable gifts as part of the remnant of Israel within the one new humanity in Messiah. And likewise, we are committed for Gentiles of every nation, people, and tribe to be preserved in their ethnic identities, as equal heirs with the remnant of Israel in this one new humanity, members together of the one body of Messiah, and sharers together in the promise in Jesus the Messiah!(Jer. 31:31-38 (30-37 TLV); Hebrew 8:8-12; 10:14-18; Lk. 22:20; Acts 21:17-26; 24:14-16; 26:6, 22-23; Rom. 9:1-5; 11:1-2; 11-15, 25-32; 1 Cor. 7:17-20; Eph. 2:11-22; 3:6-7; Rev. 7:4-11; 21:12-24, 22-24;)

In our city and the world, our heart and prayer is for unity among the Jewish and Gentile Body of Messiah. A unity in the gospel of the kingdom, unity in the Father and Son and Spirit, unity in the great commission, unity in love for one another, so that we make visible the reality that we are one Family of God, one Bride of Messiah, and one Temple of the Holy Spirit, so that the world believe and receive eternal life in the Kingdom bringing Messiah, who has come and is coming again! (Matt. 28:17-20; Lk. 24:44-49; Mk. 16:15; Jn. 20:21; Acts 1:6-8; Eph. 3:6-7; 4:11-13; Jn. 17:20-23; Eph. 5:25-27; 2:20-22; Rom. 11:11-15, 25-26; 30-32; Jn. 3:16-18; 17:3, 20-23).

Rediscovering the Depths of the Gospel of the Kingdom

We need more than ever to rediscover the depths of the gospel of the kingdom of God (Matt. 24:14; 4:17). We want to invite you to consider journey deeper into knowing God in the gospel.

The goals of Gospel of the Kingdom were prefigured in the Garden
The Father made everything through His Son and by the Spirit. This included the planting of the Garden of Eden on the Mountain of God. In the Garden, God’s throne in Heaven and His footstool on Earth were united as one. Humankind as male and female imagers were placed in the Garden to enjoy the pleasure and joy of His Presence. As His royal-priestly children, they were ADONAI’S worshippers, called to hear and obey His Voice and Instruction and cultivate and watch over the Garden-Dwelling Place of God (from unsuspecting threats and danger?). In His Presence, they were to live in relational unity with ADONAI and Community in shalom with all of Creation. From intimate, joyful, loyal relationships they were to represent, reflect, and rule with God as stewards of Creation. They were to partner with Him, so that His Kingdom would come everywhere on the Earth as in Heaven like it was in the Garden! This beginning reveals our destination. That starting point of the Kingdom on earth hints at the consummation of the Kingdom on earth. (Matt. 25:34; Gen. 1:1-3; Jn. 1:1-3; Heb. 1:1-3; Col. 1:16; Ps. 33:6; Psa. 78:69; Isa. 66:1-2; Matt. 5:34; Ez. 28; Rev. 5:10; 7:4-10).

The Fall didn’t change God’s plan for the Kingdom
While a rebellion occurred by that heavenly being we know as Satan or the Devil, followed by the deception and disobedience of humanity, bringing a massive disruption in the created order, we know that God already had a predestined plan of redemption in place. But it’s fulfillment would not be without much suffering and loss. Sin brought in a relational division between God and humanity. Humankind was exiled from their home in Eden where Heaven was united to Earth. Death and sickness and disease came into the world through sin, as Satan’s evil kingdom was inaugurated in the earth. Satan began to ravage God's world, amplifying human sinfulness to increase evil, suffering, and pain. But God promised that a Seed of the Woman would come and crush the head of the evil serpent and restore all things that were lost. What was lost, would be restored. If we don’t know what was lost, we won’t know was the gospel promises to restore. God didn’t change His kingdom plan (Gen. 2-3; Eph. 1:3-14; Ezek. 28:11-19; Isa. 14:12-15; Rom. 1:18-32; 5:12-21; 8:18-23; Eph. 2:1-2; 1 Jn. 5:19; Gen. 3:15; 12:1-3; 22:18; 49:8-12; Rev. 12:1-5).

The Gospel of the Kingdom was promised and prophesied in Israel’s Scripture
God promised that He would send the anticipated Seed of the Woman, the King of Judah for Israel and the Nations. He would restore all things. God’s Kingdom would come on Earth as in Heaven. This was pictured in measure in the Tabernacle, and later the Temple connected to the Davidic and Solomonic Kingdom. But when ADONAI would come through a Messiah in a New Covenant, a greater expression the Kingdom would come with a greater expression of His Dwelling Place. While it was a mystery hidden until the appointed time, this Good News of redemption, rescue, restoration and victory over the Devil would all be accomplished through two comings of the one King (Jn. 8:58; Ex. 3:14-15; Gen. 3:15; Rom. 1:1-5; 3:21-26; Gal. 3:8; Lk 24:25-27; Jn. 5:37-40: Gen. 12:1-3; 22:16-18; Gal. 3:8, 16; Gen. 49:8-12; Numb. 24:5-9, 15-19; Deut. 17:14-20; Matt. 5:17-20; Gal. 4:4-6; Rom. 3:31; Rom. 8:1-4; 13:8-10; Deut. 18:15-19; Acts 3:19-25; 2 Sam. 7:12-16; 1 Chron. 17; Psa. 89; Isa. 55:3-5; Isa. 7:14; Isa. 9:1-7; 2 Sam. 7:12-16; 1 Chron. 17; Psa. 89). The promises and prophesies began to be fulfilled when the Father sent His Son for His first coming into the world to be conceived by the Spirit as the promised Seed of David and Abraham, born as the King of the Jews and the Savior of the whole world. He came to die. (Lk 1:30-33; Gen. 3:15; 12:1-3; 22:16-18; Gal. 3:8, 16; 4:4-6; Matt. 1:1; 2 Sam. 7:12-16; 1 Chron. 17:11-14; Isa. 9:6 (5); Matt. 1:21-23; Jn. 1:14-18).

The Gospel of the Kingdom is centered on the two comings of the one King
So when we talk about the gospel according to Israel’s Scriptures, we need to remember this is centered on the two comings of the one Messiah-King. One coming is past with massive present and future implications. One is future but rooted in His first coming. This gospel of the Kingdom of His two comings is narrative declaration that unleashes the power of God. It’s message reveals the glory and honor of Yeshua’s pre-existence, His centrality in Israel’s Scripture, His incarnation as the Son of David, His Spirit filled, led, and empowered life of obedience to the Father, His teaching, His miracles, His suffering, His death, His burial, His resurrection, His ascension, His sending of the Holy Spirit, His upholding the universe by the word of His power, His intercession, and His promised return to consummate all the promises for Israel, the nations, and creation to the glory of the Father. The deeper we go into the gospel as a narrative, the deeper we dive into the story of our King. Song writers, musicians, poets, prophets, and preachers are needed to saturate our communities with the joy of this good news story! (The Gospels).

The Gospel is an invitation to enter and live in and from the Kingdom
All are now invited to enter into and live in and from the Kingdom in this age, with the guaranteed hope of embodied everlasting life in the Kingdom of God in the age to come. It is through Yeshua that we enter into the Kingdom, by grace that enables us to repent, believe, and submit to the rule of the King. With repentance, there is remission of sins. With faith, there is salvation . With submission (by this repentance and faith) in following the King, there is entrance into Kingdom (Matt. 4:17; Lk. 24:44-49; 13:3, 5; Eph. 2:1-10; Rom. 10:9-10; Matt. 7:21-23; Tit. 2:11-14; Col. 1:13-14)

The Gospel reveals that the one Creator God is for all, who sent one Messiah for all, and gives one way of salvation for all
The Kingdom through Covenant Biblical Redemption Story reveals the Creator God of Abraham, Issac, and Jacob. This revelation of God’s unity comes to fuller expression in the Gospel in the one God who is from everlasting the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. For in love, the Father sends the Son and the Holy Spirit for our salvation. This in accordance with His faithfulness to His covenant promises to Israel and also for the Nations and purposes for all Creation. Because God is one, the gospel must be for Israel and the nations, for He is the God of Jews and Gentiles. There is one Messiah for all and one way of salvation for all by grace through faith (Gal. 4:4-7; Jn. 3:16; 1 Cor. 15:3; Deut. 6:4-5; Rom. 3:21-31).

The Gospel is the power of God for salvation at three levels
It is the power of God for salvation at the individual level, corporate level, and cosmic level. For it the power of God to reconcile Jew and Gentiles to God as individuals (Rom. 1:16-17; Gal. 2:20). It is the power of God to reconcile the remnant of Israel and the redeemed of every nation, people, tribe, and language together as co-heirs, co-members in the one body, and co-sharers in the promise of the Kingdom (Eph. 2:11-22; 3:6). And it is the power of God to defeat the Evil one in all God’s creation and reconcile everything in Heaven and Earth (Eph. 1:10; Col. 1:19-20; 2:14-15). This is all through the blood of the New Covenant that Yeshua shed on the tree. It is now and not yet.

The Gospel promises many blessings (this is not comprehensive)
The good news promises forgiveness, acceptance, right standing, reconciliation, and victory over the Evil one! It promises healing, freedom from present and future wrath and condemnation, adoption as children, cleansing and a new heart and spirit that loves, knows, and fears God. It promises the indwelling of and empowerment with the Holy Spirit to live in righteousness and have the King’s ministry of power replicated in our lives. The Holy Spirit given in the gospel is also the deposit and guarantee of God’s promised resurrection of our bodies at Yeshua’s second coming in order to inherit the Kingdom of God as heirs of God and co-heirs with Messiah! (Col. 1:13-14; Eph. 1:5; Rom. 5:1, 10; Matt. 8:17; Rom. 5:9-10; 1 Thess. 5:9; Rom. 8:13-17; Eze. 26:25-27; Jer. 24:7; 32:38-40; Deut. 30:6; Lk. 24:49; Acts 1:6-8; Rom. 8:23; 1 Cor. 15:20-23, 50-55).

In Yeshua Our King:

We are saved by grace through faith. Not by our works or by our own righteousness. We didn’t earn salvation. It was given in mercy because of God’s great love for us. He pursued us in love to save us (Eph. 2:6-10; 1 Tim. 1:15; Heb. 9:26; Lk. 19:10; Matt. 1:21; Rom. 5:6-10).

We are forgiven of all our lawlessness. This is through His blood of the New Covenant! His sacrifice is the bases of our forgiveness (Jn. 19:6; Matt. 27:3-4, 19, 23-24; Lk. 23:39-41, 47; 2 Cor. 5:20-21; 1 Pet.2:22; Jn. 1:29).

We are no longer judicially condemned for our sins. Our sins were condemned when He died in our place (Isa. 53:5; Jn. 3:16-18; Rom. 8:1).

We are declared righteous as a gift. We are given the status of His innocence, declared not guilty in the Guiltless King, because He is not guilty and took away our guilt. When He was resurrected, this was the reversal of the unjust verdict in His trial that declared Him guilty. The resurrection was the verdict of God that He was innocent and His blood was sufficient to die for the guilty. For us. In Him, our guilt is taken away through His death and His righteousness is counted as our as a gift. This free gift makes us heirs of eternal life! (Jn. 3:16-18; Rom. 8:1; Gen. 15:6; Rom. 3:21-26; 4:1-12, 5:1, 12-21; 1 Cor. 1:30-31; 2 Cor. 5:21; Isa. 45:23-25; 53:11; Acts 13:39; Tit. 3:4-7; Phil. 3:7-11, 21).

We are accepted by the Father in our beloved King. He is our righteousness. In Him, we are God’s adopted children! Yeshua is God’s Son. In the Son, we now are God’s children. As children who follow our Suffering and Risen King in way of suffering before glory, we have the promises of an everlasting inheritance as children of God (Eph. 1:6; Gal. 4:6; Rom. 8:14-17).

We are reconciled to Him in our King, no longer enemies of God but loyal allies and friends! Friends who love Him. Friends who are willing to Shema our King, hearing and obeying Him (Rom. 5:10; Jn. 15:13-15).

We are saved from present and future wrath. Because God is good, His wrath is in opposition to evil. It is His love that opposes the evil that destroys relationship with Himself, with one another, and with creation. The cross is His way of destroying sin, without destroying us. So in the King, we are rescued from present wrath and future wrath because Yeshua died for our sin (Jn. 3:16-18, 36; Rom. 1:18; 3:21-26; 5:9; 1 Thess. 1:9-10; 5:9).

We are now redeemed from the curse of transgressing the law (Gal. 3:13; 2:20). This is because our King bore away the curse in our place! This doesn’t mean, we won’t be disciplined if we walk in sin. We will. This is Father discipline and training so we can share in His holiness and see Him face to face on that Day (Heb. 12).

We are free from our slavery to Sin. For we have died with Him in His death through baptism. This means we are dead to the judicial condemnation we deserved for our sin. We are dead to the verdict of guilty over our lives. We are dead to Sin as Slave-Master. We don’t have to live under its Tyrannical rule any more. We don’t have to yield our bodies and body part to its desires. We are free to live under the rule of our King, a rule and reign of Grace and Truth, giving our bodies and its parts to a life of hearing God and practicing true goodness and righteousness from the heart (Rom. 6:6-14; Tit. 2:11-14; Pet. 2:24-25; Jn. 1:14-18; Matt. 6:1-3, 33).

We are free from the legal record of debt that was against us and opposed us. He nailed it to the tree. So when the enemy accuses us to enslave us, we can remember the record of debt has been paid. We don’t have to live in bondage to the accuser through the agency of the disloyal spiritual rulers and authorities that rebelled against ADONAI (Col. 2:14).

We are free from the slavery to Satan and his principalities and powers. The accuser has been defeated on our behalf. So we don’t need to shema, listen to and obey his voice, believe his false promises, accept his terms of engagement, or be subject to his lies (Col. 2:15; Eph. 1:20-23; 2:1-10; Matt. 4:1-11).

We are free from slavery to the Devil’s power through the fear of death. We have the hope of resurrection because Yeshua the first fruits has been raised. We don’t need to fear those who can kill our bodies. We need to fear God who has authority to cast both soul and body into Gehenna. Trusting that Abba Father and Messiah know and care for us intimately (Heb. 2:14-15; Matt. 10:28-30).

We are new creations. He has given us a new heart to love, know, and fear ADONAI, with joy and delight in His Teaching by the gift of the Holy Spirit. This is His work in us (2 Cor. 5:17; Deut. 30:6; Jer. 24:7; 32:38-40; 31:31-34 (TLV 30-33); Heb. 8:7-12; 10:15-17; Eze. 36:25-27; Rom. 8:1-4; 13:8-10).

We have been sealed by the Holy Spirit. He is the deposit and guarantee of embodied eternal life that has been promised to us. At the King's second coming, our bodies will be redeemed and we will inherit the Kingdom of God forever! (Eph. 1:13-14; 4:30; 2 Cor. 1:20-22; 5:5; 1 Cor. 15:20-23, 50-55; Rom. 8:23-24; Phil. 3:20-21; 1 Thess. 4:13-18).

We have cleansing for our conscience from dead works to serve the living God! (Heb. 9:34; 1 Thess. 1:9-10).
In the King, we have access to God’s Presence because of Yeshua sacrifice and Mediation as our High Priest (Matt. 27:51-53; Eph. 2:18; Heb. 4:16; 7:25; Heb. 10:19-22).

We becomes a Temple of the Holy Spirit. Our bodies therefore belong to our Beloved King as part of our spiritual union with Him (1 Cor. 6:17-20).

We have been ransomed by His blood from the futile ways we have inherited from our ancestors (1 Pet. 1:18).
In the King, we are chosen in love by our Father from before the foundation of the world. For He planned to have a Family made up of the redeemed of Israel and the Nations. By believing in the gospel of our salvation we belong to this Chosen people (Eph. 1:3-14, 2:11-22; 3:6).

We are members of the Body of our Messiah-King made up of the saved remnant of Israel and the saved of every Gentile nation, people, tribe, and language (Eph. 3:6; Rom. 11:1-2, 5; Rev. 7:4-10).

We we are children and citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven (Matt. 13:38; Phil. 3:20).

We are participants in the commonwealth of Israel. The King of the Jews is the King of the saved kingdom citizens of Israel and saved kingdom citizens of every nation (Eph. 2:12; 3:6).

We are sharers in the covenants of promise (Eph. 2:12).

We are members of God’s Household-Family. We are brothers and sisters. Yeshua is our Rabbi and Instructor as we live into the Father’s will for the family (Eph. 2:19; Matt. 23:8; 12:50).

We are living stones in God’s Temple-House of the Holy Spirit. All of us together are a New Covenant Temple in the King, as well as every community in the King, and every redeemed person in the King (1 Peter 1:5; Eph. 2:20-22; 1 Cor. 3:16, 6:19).

We are an intricate part of the Bride of the Bridegroom being prepared for His coming (Eph. 5:25-32; Rev. 19:7; 2 Cor. 11:2).
In the King, we are soldiers in the Army of God (Eph. 6:10-20).

We are either natural Jewish branches or wild Gentile olive branches in the Olive Tree of Israel (Rom. 11).

We are each branches in Yeshua the Vine (Jn. 15).

We are we are receiving His intercession at the right hand of God, so that nothing will be able to separate us from His love (Heb. 7:25; Rom. 8:34-39).

We are receiving the Holy Spirit’s intercession according to the will of God (Rom. 8:27).
In the King, we are being conformed to the image of God’s Son by the Spirit from glory to glory through suffering (Rom. 8:18, 29; 2 Cor. 3:18; 4:18).

We can work out our salvation with fear and trembling, trusting God to be working in us His good purpose and pleasure. He is able to do more than we can ask or think by His power at work in us (Phil. 2:12-13; Eph. 3:20-21).

We can be confident that the good work He started in us will be brought to completion on the Day of His coming (Phil. 1:6).

We can be confident that God can protect us from stumbling and to make us stand in the presence of His glory, without blemish and with great joy (Jude 24).

We are are disciples of our Rabbi Yeshua who have taken His yoke upon ourselves to learn from Him how to live our lives as He did (Matt. 11:28-30; 1 Jn. 2:6).

We are united to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit Who indwells us and us them in an intimate, personal, new covenant relationship (Eph. 4:6; Jn. 14:23; Jn 17:3; Phil. 2:12-13; Rom. 8:9-11; Gal. 2:20; Col. 3:11; 1 Cor. 6:19; Ezek. 36:25-27).

We are to share in Yeshua’s ministry and mission (Matt. 28:17-20; Eph. 1:20-23; 4:11-16).

We are wait for His second coming (Dan. 12:2; Isa. 26:19; 1 Cor. 15:20-23, 50-55; Rom. 8:23-24; 1 Thess. 4:13-18).

We look forward to be gathered to Him at His second coming (1 Thess. 4:17; 2 Thess. 2:1).

We will also return with the Son of Man in glory to the earth. For He will come with “all His saints” and His holy angels to judge the earth (Matt. 24:30; 13:49; 1 Thess. 3:13; 4:14; Rev. 19:8, 14).

We are loved by our King and set free from our sins by His blood. He had made us a kingdom and priest to His God and Father. And we will share in His reign following His path of the cross before the crown. All the covenant promises of God concerning land, people, and blessing will come into the fullest manifestation in this time of the restoration of all things. (Rev. 1:5-6; 2-3; 5:10; 20:4; 22:5; Rom. 8:18; Acts 3:19-21)

We are among the redeemed of Israel and the nations that He dwell with forever. For we are His children. And God Himself will be our God forever and ever. He will wipe away every tear from our eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things will pass away. No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and we His servants will worship Him. We will see His face, and His Name will be on our foreheads And night will be no more. We will need no light of lamp or sun, for the LORD God will be our light, and they will reign forever and ever (Jn. 3:16-17; 17:2-3; Rev. 21-22; Col. 1:19-20; Eph. 1:10; 2 Pet. 3:8-14; Jn. 3:16-17; 17:2-3; Rev. 21-22; Col. 1:19-20; Eph. 1:10; 2 Pet. 3:8-14).
