Encouraging and offering a paradigm shift in understanding The Living G-d through the Holy Scriptures, Science, Jewish Tradition, and Intuition; resulting in a tangible expansion of Intimacy, both individually and communally, with humanity’s redeemer; to the Jew first, then the nations, thus hastening the establishment of the Messianic Kingdom.


The mission of Beit BenDaveed is three-fold:

First, to provide a genuine Jewish worship environment where Jews who believe in Yeshua can not only remain Jewish, but in many instances, expand their Jewishness.

Second, to establish a climate where all Jews, regardless of religious beliefs, will feel welcomed and respected in worship and social fellowship.

Third, to present a community where love is central to our identity and extended to all people.


I. The SHEMA! (Dt 6:4-9, 11:13-21, Num 15: 37-41; Lev 19:18; Ecc 12:13; Mk 12:28-31)


II. The Tanakh, and the Apostolic writings, with lavish accentuation focused on The Torah, constitute our sole cannon and act as the Bat Kol for all beliefs and any Halachic decision issued by the leadership of Beit BenDaveed. (Num 12:5-8; Dt 31:24-25; Isa 1:1, 8:20; Eze 2:4; Ne 9:30; Mt 23:34; Lk 24:44; 2Ti 3:16; 2Pe 3:15-16; Rev 22:18-19)


III. Zionism. Israel (The Jewish people and the Nation) has not been rejected, replaced, superseded, or in any way diminished, by any other people group, religious organization, or any other fanciful imaginations. As such we render full unequivocal support to the Jewish State of Israel and uphold its biblical mandated borders. (Gen 12:3, 15:17-21, 35:9-13; Ex 33:1; Num 24:9; De 7:6, 14:2, 26:18-19; Isa 61:7; Jer 31:34-36; Zech 2:8, 8:23; Ps 148:14; 2Ch 11:13-16, 30:6-11, 21, 25; 31:6; Mt 5:17-19, 25:31-40, 45; Lk 2:36; Ro 3:1-2a, 31, 7:12, 11:1-2a, 26-29; Ac 1:6-7, 21:17-26, 21:39, 28:17)


IV. Our unique, but historic identity is established within the greater Jewish community, not separate from it. As such, although we do not believe that the majority of Rabbinic Halachic is binding, we do respect the history and teaching of the Sages, and subsequent Rabbinic revelations. (Mt 23:1-3; Am 3:7; De 7:6)


V. We accept the assertions made by Yeshua and his talmideem that Yeshua was and is the promised Messiah of Israel and the world. In this role he has functioned as Messiah benYosef, is functioning now as Messiah benAaron, and will return to establish the Messianic Kingdom as Messiah benDaveed. (Ex 18:15; Mt 3:16-17, 16:16; Mk 8:31; Jn 1:45; Ac 1:6-11; He 2:17; )


VI. As Messiah benYosef, Yeshua has triumphed over the second death (the curse of the Torah) and graciously bestowed Eternal life (in its Edenic form) upon humankind, to be realized at the time of the resurrection of the just. (Re 2:11; Ac 24:15; 1st Th 4:13-18; Rm 5:16-18)


VII. We reject categorically, as prima fascie that The New Covenant has begun. Although two of the three criteria for The Covenant have been laid, the last, the establishment of the Messianic kingdom is NOT a present reality. (Is 11:6-9, 2:4; Mi 4:3; Mt 26:28; Ez 36:26-27; Ac 2:4; He 8:13)


VIII. We join hands with the rest of the Jewish community by confirming and promoting the Noachide covenant, to the greater community of humankind, as our ancestors advocated in Acts 15. Hence the obligation to walk according to the totality of Torah remains exclusive to the Jewish people, although the goyim are welcome to experience and embrace the august joy of “walking out” any of the Mitzvot to which they are led by the Ruach HaKodesh to grasp. (Ge 8:20-9:17; Ac 15:19-21)


IX. Israel was and remains the bride of Messiah. (Is 49:18, 61:10, 62:5; Ho 2:18-22; Mt 25:1-13)


X. Salvation (Eternal life with HaShem cannot be gained by righteous living or lost by unrighteous acts. It is, and has always been, a gift of G-d extended to a flawed humanity. (Rm 5:12-21, 11:29; Ga 2:21; Ep 2:8-9)


XI. That which unites Jews and Gentiles (the love of HaShem) should be greater than that which divides them. (Ex 33:19; De 32:8; Mi 7:18-19; Lk 12:6-7, 9:50; 1st Yn 2:2, 4:8; Ti 2:11; Rm 3:29, 11:32; 1st Cor 13; Co 3:14)


XII. Belief in freedom and diversity concerning Jewish beliefs and Canonical understandings, as well as how these twin concepts are to be applied to one’s personal lives. As such, religious beliefs, or lack thereof, cannot be mandated by any ecclesiastical or secular authority. (Jo 24:15; Mk 12:17; 2nd Cor 3:17)




We DO NOT believe any form of replacement theology to include: Two House / Ephramite theology; Sacred Name doctrine; Aviv barley reckoning of the Festivals; the Lunar Sabbath doctrine; or any organization that rejects the validity of the Noachide covenant.


Nor do we accept as valid any claims of Messianic Jewishness for Neo-Hebrew Christian organizations such as; Jews for Jesus, Ariel Ministries, First Fruits of Zion, etc.
