What We Believe & Why
Jewish Voice is an evangelical ministry committed to taking the Gospel to the Jew first, and also to the Nations. The ministry is dedicated to two missions: 1) Introducing Jewish People around the world to their Messiah, Yeshua; and 2) teaching the Church about her Hebraic roots. The ministry bases its beliefs on the following tenets.
We believe the Bible, composed of the Tenach (Jewish Scriptures) and the Apostolic Writings of the New Covenant (Brith Chadasha), is the only infallible and authoritative Word of God.
2 Timothy 3:15-17, Romans 15:4; 2 Peter 1:19-21; Hebrews 4:2; Ephesians 6:17
God Is Echad
We believe God is Echad, as declared in the Shema, “a united one” or “compound unity” eternally existent in three persons.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 48:16-17; 1 John 5:7-13
We believe in the Deity of Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus, the Messiah) that He is the “Seed of the woman” as God promised, and that His virgin birth was to be a sign to Israel of His Messiahship.
Genesis 3:15; Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah 9:6-7, Matthew 1:22-23
Messiah Yeshua’s Life
We believe in Messiah Yeshua’s life, His miracles yesterday and today. We also believe in His vicarious and sacrificial death as our atonement, His bodily resurrection, His personal future return for His followers, both living and dead, and the future establishment of His Kingdom on Earth.
Isaiah 53:8-11; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Isaiah 9:6-7; 1 Corinthians 11:26; Zechariah 12:6-10; Zechariah 14:16-21
Cleansed by Grace
We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is by grace, through faith in the shed sacrificial blood of the Lamb of God, Yeshua HaMashiach, and that regeneration by the Spirit of God is absolutely essential for personal salvation.
Leviticus 17:11; Ephesians 2:8; Romans 1:17; Habakkuk 2:4; John 3:3; Hebrews 11:6; Genesis 15:6
We believe in the present ministry of the HaRuach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) by Whose indwelling the Believer is enabled to live a godly life.
Jeremiah 31:31-34; John 14:15-17; Galatians 5:13-25
We believe the Jews according to the flesh (descendants of Abraham through Isaac, whether through the blood line of the mother or the father) who place their faith in Israel’s Messiah Yeshua have not disowned or separated themselves from their race and Judaic heritage, but remain sons and daughters of Israel. Gentiles who place their faith in Israel’s Messiah Yeshua are spiritually sons and daughters of Abraham.
Galatians 3:28-29; Romans 2:28-29; Genesis 15:6
We believe in the resurrection of both saved and lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to eternal separation from God, the latter being consigned to a state of everlasting punishment.
Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:46; Psalm 69:28; Revelation 20:12-15
Middle Wall of Partition
We believe in the middle wall of partition, which in times past separated Jews and Gentiles, has been broken down, the enmity between them eradicated by the Messiah Yeshua.
Ephesians 2:12-14; Acts 10:34
New Covenant Body
We believe the New Covenant body of the Lord is composed of both Jews and Gentiles who have accepted Yeshua HaMashiach as the promised Redeemer and that now they are to worship together in the House of God.
1 Corinthians 12:13; Hebrews 10:25; Ephesians 3:6, 10-12
Jewish Followers of Yeshua
We believe that as Jewish followers of Yeshua, we are called to maintain our Jewish biblical heritage and remain part of our People, and the universal body of Believers. This is part of our identity and a witness to the faithfulness of God.
Romans 3:1-4; 1 Corinthians 7:17-20; Acts 21:20-24
