Our Beliefs

     The core of our beliefs are summarized in three important documents: (1) The Canon of Faith (AKA The Apostles' Creed), (2) The Seven Articles of Isaric Orthodoxy, and (3) Ha Purshana Sharira (The True Distinction). The texts of the first two are provided below, the former in Aramaic and English, and the latter in English only. Both are numbered according to the traditional Hebrew and Aramaic alphabetic numbering system.

The Seven Articles of Isaric Orthodoxy

(ḁ)   First, that YHWH is God, and there is none beside Him.

(b)   Second, that YHWH is one Divine ousia revealed in three hypostases that are manifest as three prosopathe Father, Who is the very Mind of God, and the Son, Who is the Logos of God, and the Holy Spirit, Who is the life-giving and sustaining Breath of God. These three together constitute the full and revealed personhood of the One True God. The Divine hypostases are coexistent, coessential, coeternal, coinherent, and coequal in divinity (though not in greatness) relative to one another, each unique in manifestation and function; yet all three are of singular being, authority, and purpose; One.

(g)   Third, that Yeshua the Messiah is the Only-Begotten Son of Godthe Logos of God from the beginning, Who emptied Himself according to the will of the Father, descended from the seventh and highest heaven, and, through the work of the Holy Spirit, entered the womb of the virgin Maryam, binding to Himself the flesh of man, including a perfect and sinless human soul. In Him, therefore, are mystically united the fullness of divinity and humanity in an indissoluble unionthe one nature of the person of Yeshua bar-Yosef of Nazareth, which is without mixture or separation, confusion or change. Moreover, through Him are fulfilled, and are yet being fulfilled, the many biblical statutes and prophecies of old pertaining to the offices of Prophet, Priest, and King; accordingly, to Him is the sole right to be called Messiah and Restorer.

(d)   Fourth, that man, although made in the image of God, naturally, politically, and morally, is now fallen because of his own sin, being enslaved to the will of the flesh and thus totally depraved from the moment of his conception.

(h)   Fifth, that YHWH, through His perfect love and His prevenient grace, allows fallen man a measure of freedom of will and conscience, and, through His Holy Spirit, reaches out to all men without discrimination, convicting them of their sins and testifying concerning Truth. In accordance with His justice and righteousness, God withholds His holy judgment upon the guiltless babes of men, who are not subject to the law until the time of their soul competency and legal accountability, for it is written, "each shall die for his own sin."

(w)   Sixth, that YHWH has cut a New and Better Covenant with man through His Son, Yeshua the Messiah, Who freely offers forgiveness of sins and eternal life to all who will receive Him as Lord and Savior. The primary evidence of this is the Holy BibleOld and New Testaments, being both divinely inspired and divinely authoritative. The sign of the New Covenant is the circumcision of the heart by the Holy Spirit, and its principal ordinances are twobelievers baptism and the breaking of bread, which is the Eucharist. These ordinances stand as lasting memorials of the saving work of our Lord; they are neither a means of salvation nor a means of grace, but are outward expressions of an inward faith. 

(z)   Seventh, that faith in Yeshua the Messiah is the sole means of mans salvation from damnation, which is accomplished by mans confession and repentance, his yielding to God, and his receiving the Holy Spirit. The result of these is mans justification, regeneration, and ongoing sanctification through his spiritual respiration, until the death of his physical body, which is the end of his flesh and the fulfillment of his glorification in the third heaven, which is Paradise. There man shall remain until the return of the Lord to the earth, whereupon his soul shall be clothed in new flesh and he shall once more be counted among the living. Then he shall witness the passing away of the old world and the coming of the new; and his days upon the earth shall be without number, free from all sin and sorrow, as it was in the beginning.
