Our Core Beliefs
A Few Distinctives of The Way Congregation (in a nutshell)
Our goal at the Way Congregation is to simply walk as Jesus taught. We believe we are filling a gap between Judah (Messianic Jews) and Ephraim (the gentile church) by taking the wholesome and biblical aspects from each. We love grace! We want the world to know our God is gracious and has paid for our sins through the blood of Yeshua. We also love God’s instructions and we strive to live according to all that He has revealed and instructed us to do because His instructions lead to joy, peace, and prosperity. We want to focus on the majors without leaving the minors undone. While we love Shabbat, the feasts, and clean food -- but what defines us is our love and kindness. Furthermore, we believe the Bible is God’s Word and that it is completely inerrant and infallible and inspired: The people, places, events and miracles described in it were completely real and historical.
God, creator of all things, is infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah is truly God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven where, at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Advocate. God’s Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict, regenerate, indwell, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.
Angels (Good and Evil)
We believe that God created all angels good but Satan (Lucifer) took a third of the angels with him when he fell. He and they are now referred to as fallen angels or demons. Angels do the biding of God in this world whereas the demons (fallen angels) serve Satan.
Sin in its most basic sense is rebellion against God, breaking the law (IJohn 3:4). The Bible refers to three types (sin, trespasses and iniquity). We generally refer to all three as “sin”. The Bible declares that we have all sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Jesus died to erase our debt of sin.
There is only one name under heaven by which we must be saved: the Lord Jesus Christ. There is salvation in no other except the Lord Jesus. Jesus said: I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the Father except by me. In order to inherit the Kingdom of God, we must confess that we have broken God’s laws (we have sinned) repent (return) of those actions and thoughts, and then accept what Jesus did for us in our place. Of course that process is not a formula but rather a general sequence of the events a person passes through on the way to reconciliation with God. .
Jesus will raise those trusting in Him when he returns and then we who are alive and remain will be caught up with Him and will receive our new bodies in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye.
God has given each and every person an ability to choose life and death (Deut 30:19). God has called all men to repent (Acts 17:30) and desires all men to be saved (I Tim 2:4). Jesus’ work on the cross is the means by which man can be saved (John 3:14-19) and that all who believe in Him will have eternal life (John 3:16). God does not predestine some to heaven and some to hell. Those that enter into hell will do so because they rejected Jesus as their savior (John 3:18, 19).
Satan is working on establishing his kingdom on this earth which will culminate in the rise of one known commonly as the Antichrist to whom Satan will give his power, authority, and throne. During the time known as the Great Tribulation, the Antichrist, the man of sin, will declare himself to be God. At the same time, a war will break out in Heaven between Satan and his angels and Michael and his angels. Satan will lose and will be cast to the earth. Then he and the Antichrist will attempt to completely wipe out Israel. At the end of this period, Israel will cry out to Jesus (Yeshua), the one they pierced, finally welcoming him. Jesus will then mount his horse, ride upon the clouds and come to save Israel. Shortly after this time, Jesus will establish His Kingdom which shall never pass away.
