The Faith and Beliefs of
The Members of Yeshua
At a Meeting of The Board of Ministry of
Yeshua International it was declared that:‑
A synopsis of Yeshua International Faith and Beliefs
are as follows:‑
Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are inspired by God. Since God inspired
these scriptures, they are infallible. (To eliminate the argument of
translation, many Yeshua International churches use the King James Translation,
which is said to be the first translation into English).
is ONE GOD, in the form of three entities or "persons": the Father, the
Son, and the Holy Spirit. Although three entities, all referred to in the
matriarchal sense, are all referring to God, the idea of polytheism is never
brought into question by stating that the "three" are "ONE."
Logically, this is impossible; yet Members of Yeshua International believe all
things are possible through God.
of Yeshua International believe that Jesus Christ was both the flesh and bone
Son of God, and the deity of God the Son as well. In other words, Jesus was 100%
human and 100% God the son while He walked earth, and the time before and the
of Yeshua International believe that mankind made a conscious effort to sin,
thus bringing evil, sin, and death into the world, as we know it. Members of
Yeshua International believe that the sacrifice of Jesus Christ allows anyone
who accepts Him to be saved from the evil and sin mentioned above. This act of
accepting Jesus Christ as one's "Personal Saviour" (by asking for
forgiveness of sins, accepting Jesus as their Saviour, and repenting from one's
sinful lifestyle) is the defining point when one becomes a Christian.
of Yeshua International believe that two practices are required of all
Christians who have accepted Jesus: Water baptism, as a symbol of burying
"old man of sin" (when one is submerged into water as an adult or by
anointing as an infant) and "Resurrection" of the new man (when one
emerges); and Communion, as dictated in the Gospels (the Last Supper). Note:
like most Protestant faiths, Members of Yeshua International do NOT practice the
Roman Catholic‑based ritual of Transubstantiation. The Communion bread and wine
(or juice in some cases) are symbolic ("This do in remembrance of me",
Jesus to His Disciples at the Last Supper, Luke 22:19).
of Yeshua International believe in the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, as
illustrated in the Book of Acts, Chapter 2. This is said to empower believers
for "effective service", and evidence of such Baptism of the Holy Spirit
is the "Speaking in Tongues".
of Yeshua International believe that sanctification occurs when receiving Jesus
Christ, yet is an on‑going process. In other words, a Member of Yeshua
International Christian is expected to "repent" from his/her sinful
nature and strive to become like Jesus. In the event that a Christian commits
sin, he/she can ask for forgiveness as long as he/she is truly repentant (this
is not a license to sin).
the words of Jesus Christ in Matthew 28:19‑20, Members of Yeshua International
are charged with delivering the message of salvation & redemption to those who
are lost. It is important to know that this is not a condition of salvation, but
a command to those who are believers.
of Yeshua International believe that Healing from God is a privilege to
Christians, as well as a commandment to believers to pray for those who are
ailing. Note: some extreme Christian fundamentalist groups, which borderline
cults with their beliefs and activities, have been known to behave in such
dangerous ways as to intentionally drink poisons and handle
venomous snakes as an act of faith. These groups
are EXTREMELY outside of the realm of Members of Yeshua International, although
some may actually call themselves as such.
of Yeshua International believe that, at some moment in time, every believer,
alive and dead, will be caught up in the air by Christ, prior to His second
coming, and will be delivered to "a place I have prepared for you."
Although the word does not exist in the Old or New Testaments with regard to
this event, the term is universally called "the Rapture."
upon prophesies in both the Old and New Testaments, it is believed that when
Jesus returns, thus will begin His 1,000‑year rule of Earth. The "nation
of Israel" will acknowledge Him as their Saviour at that time (what
exactly the "nation of Israel" is, whether the worldwide Jewish
population or the sovereign nation of Israel or something else entirely, is
of Yeshua International believe in the Final Judgment, where every person who
rejects Christ will be turned over to the Lake of Fire. It is important to know
that to Members of Yeshua International, those who reject Christ are those who
do not or have not followed the criteria listed above for Salvation and
Redemption. Thus, other groups known as Christian may be seen as "rejecting
Christ" if they have not accepted Jesus as their Saviour & repented of their
sins. It is this belief that seems to alienate the Yeshua International movement
from many other facets of Christianity.
of Yeshua International believe that Jesus has a place for all believers to
dwell with Him for all eternity. Once again, to Members of Yeshua International
this is only believers following the criteria of Salvation listed above, and
whether this is before, during, or after the events in items
(B) is uncertain. ("In
my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I
go to prepare a place for you", John 14 v 2)
As noted above, this is just a synopsis of
the basic Faith and Beliefs of Yeshua International.
common idea within Yeshua International is the idea that the Bible is the
complete, exact Word of God. The arguments of translation (s), the changing of
word meanings from generation to generation, and even the canonizing of the
Bible itself (choosing which books were added and which books were left out over
the years) are seldom brought up within the Yeshua International Movement. The
idea of "God said it, I believe it, that settles it" seems to be the
catchall answer. Some call this ignorance; others (including The Members of
Yeshua International) call it FAITH.
