Statement of Faith 

While we believe that lifestyle is more important than creeds, as a Hebraic-Christian Congregation, we affirm the following fundamental statements of faith. We recognize the need for unity of belief in the fundamentals while allowing liberty in those areas which are important, but not dogma.

1.

We believe that the Bible, both the Tanakh (Old Testament) and the Brit Hadasha (New Testament) is the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. (Exodus 24:4- 8; 2 Timothy 3:16-17)

2.

We believe in one God as He revealed Himself in the Bible and that the meaning of the word “one” in the Hebrew language (echad) refers to God as a compound unity. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Mark 12:28-30)

3.

We believe that Jesus (Yeshua) of Nazareth is God in human flesh (the Son of God) who is the Savior, Lord, and Redeemer of mankind. (Psalm 2; John 1:1-18; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 1:1-2)

4.

We believe that the Spirit of God indwells all true believers and will comfort, teach, lead and empower those who obey Him. (Zechariah 4:6; John 14:15-18, 25-26; 16:7-15)

5.

We believe that all have sinned and need to be redeemed. That salvation-redemption is by God’s grace and cannot be earned by human merit. It is accomplished in our personal lives through faith in Yeshua's death and resurrection which provides atonement for all who commit their life to Him. True saving faith will be evidenced by the fruit of God’s Spirit and works of covenantal love. (Exodus 34:5-7; Deuteronomy 7:9; Daniel 9:18; Psalm 51:1-2; Habakkuk 2:4; Micah 6:8; Isaiah 53; Romans 1:16-17; 3:21-26; Ephesians 2:8-9; James 2:14-17; Galatians 5:22-25)

6.

We believe in the continuity of God’s covenants with the physical descendants of Abraham and that part of the fulfillment of these covenants is the physical return of the people of Israel to their Promised Land as spoken by the prophets. We understand that God has a role for Christians to comfort and help the Jewish people in their return to the land. )Genesis 12:1-3; 17:2, 4:8; Chronicles 16:15-17; Jeremiah 31:31-34; 33:14-26; Isaiah 40:1; 49:22; 60:8-9; Ezekiel 37:; Romans 9-11)

7.

We believe in the literal, physical return of Messiah to rule and reign upon the throne of David in Jerusalem. (2 Samuel 7:12-13, 16; Zechariah 14; Acts 1:11; Revelation 19-20)

8.

We believe in the resurrection and judgment of the righteous to eternal life and the wicked to eternal separation from God. (Daniel 12:1-3; Matthew 25:31-46; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Hebrews 9:27; Corinthians 15; Revelation 20-21)

9.

We believe that all human life is sacred and created by God in His image. Human life is of inestimable worth in all its dimensions including pre born babies, the aged, the physically or mentally challenged and any other stage or condition from conception through natural death. We are therefore called to defend, protect, and value all human life. (Psalm 139)

10.

Because God has ordained marriage and defined it as the covenant relationship between a man, a woman, and Himself, (the Church) will only recognize marriages between a biological man and a biological woman. Further, the Pastors/ministers/clergy and staff of (the church) shall only participate in weddings and solemnize marriages between one man and one woman.

We believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male or female. These two distinct complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. (Gen 1:26-27) Rejection of one’s biological sex is a rejection of the image of God within that person.

We believe that the term marriage has only one meaning: the uniting of one man and one woman in a single, exclusive union, as delineated in Scripture. (Gen. 2:18-25)

We believe that God intends sexual intimacy to occur only between a man and a woman who are married to each other. (1Cor. 6:18; 7:2-5; Heb. 13:4)

We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman.

We believe that any form of sexual immorality (including adultery, fornication, homosexual behavior, bisexual conduct, bestiality, incest, and use of pornography) is sinful and offensive to God. (Mat. 15:18-20)

We believe that in order to preserve the function and integrity of SHCC as the local body of Christ, and to provide a biblical role model to SHCC members and the community, it is imperative that all persons employed by SHCC in any capacity, or who serve as volunteers, agree to abide by this statement on marriage, gender and sexuality. (Mat. 5:1; Phil 2:14-16; 1Th 5:22)

11.

We believe that God offers redemption and restoration to all who confess and forsake their sin, seeking His mercy and forgiveness through Jesus Christ. (Acts 3:19-21; Rom. 10:9-10; 1Cor. 6:9-11)

12.

We believe that every person must be afforded compassion, love, kindness, respect, and dignity. (Mark 12:28-31; Luke 6:31) Hateful and harassing behavior or attitudes directed toward any individual are to be repudiated and are not in accord with Scripture nor the doctrine of SHCC.
