The Shoresh David Statement of Our Faith
Unity in our Statement of Faith, Grace Towards Others in the
Application of Our Core Values, Love at all times
The Bible – We believe...
The Bible is God's written revelation to man. All sixty-six books comprised of Genesis thru Revelation are equally inspired by the
Holy Spirit and constitute the complete Word of God.
The Bible is the inerrant, unchangeable, infallible, prophetic, authoritative Word of God, for all people ~ for all time. The Bible is our
highest authority in all matters of faith, life, and practice.
God – We believe...
There is only one true, eternally-living God ~ the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
God is One, existing in three co-equal and co-eternal persons; He is triune: the Father (ha-Av), the Son (ha-Ben: Yeshua), and the
Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh), each equally deserving worship and obedience.
God is Perfect in all His attributes: holy, infinite, unchanging, just, loving, all-powerful.
God is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, and knows all things from eternity past to eternity future.
All things were created by God and He is therefore deserving of all our worship, praise and honor.
God the Father – We believe...
As the only absolute and omnipotent Ruler in the universe, He is sovereign in creation, wisdom, and redemption.
God, the Father, continually upholds, directs, and governs all creatures and events in His sovereignty, while allowing free will for
God, the Father, saves men from condemnation. He adopts as His own, all people who come to Him through His Son,
Yeshua the Messiah.
Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) – We believe...
Yeshua is God, who came to earth in the flesh; fully God (Deity) and fully man.
Yeshua is King of kings and Lord of lord; He is the promised Messiah of Israel.
Yeshua is the only begotten Son of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of Miriam, a Jewish virgin, and is in the
lineage of King David.
Yeshua willingly became the final atonement for the sins of the world by the shedding of His blood.
Yeshua died by crucifixion, was physically resurrected in three days, and ascended to heaven to sit at the right hand of
Salvation (Yeshua) is the goal of the Torah and spoken of by the Prophets to be the Redeemer of the world.
Yeshua will return in the end of days to establish His kingdom on earth and will reign on the throne of David.
Yeshua intercedes only on behalf of all those who believe in Him and call upon His name.
Yeshua is the final Judge of all mankind. Those who believe in Yeshua as Lord and Savior will be resurrected to eternal
life with God.
Those who fail to place their trust in Yeshua, as Lord and Savior, will be in a place of torment, forever separated from
Ruach haKodesh (The Holy Spirit) – We believe...
Ruach haKodesh is God and part of His Tri-Unity.
Ruach haKodesh is ever-present within us, as our Helper and Comforter, to glorify and testify of Yeshua.
Ruach haKodesh permanently indwells, regenerates, and seals every believer.
Ruach haKodesh empowers all believers, and sovereignly imparts spiritual gifts to each believer, for the purpose of
edifying and equipping the Body of Messiah.
Ruach haKodesh guides, teaches, sanctifies, comforts, and intercedes for each believer.
Ruach haKodesh convicts the world of sin and unrighteousness, and brings judgment.
Salvation (Eternal Life) – We believe...
Man is created in the image of God.
As a result of Adam’s sin of disobedience, sin and death entered the world separating all men from God.
All have sinned and come short of the glory of God and all are in need of redemption.
The only way for man to be reconciled to God, be cleansed of sin, and receive everlasting life with Him, is to receive
Yeshua’s atoning blood sacrifice.
God’s free gift of salvation is wholly by grace, only through faith, based on Yeshua’s atoning work, and not on the basis
of human merit or work.
God’s salvation leads us to repentance and good works, through the power of God’s Spirit.

God - We believe: God the Father– We believe:
Genesis 1:26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness! Let them rule over the fish of the sea, over the flying creatures of the sky, over the livestock, over the whole earth, and over every crawling creature that crawls on the land.”

I Peter 1:1-2 Peter, an emissary of Messiah Yeshua, To the sojourners of the Diaspora in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia—chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, set apart by the Ruach for obedience and for sprinkling with the blood of Yeshua the Messiah: May grace and shalom be multiplied to you.
I John 5:1-7 Everyone who believes that Yeshua is the Messiah is born of God, and everyone who loves the Father loves the one born of Him. We know that we love God’s children by this—when we love God and obey His commandments. For this is the love of God—that we keep His commandments. And His commandments are not burdensome. For everyone born of God overcomes the world. And the victory that has overcome the world is this—our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world, if not the one who believes that Yeshua is Ben-Elohim? Messiah Yeshua is the One who came by water and blood—not by water only, but by water and blood. The Spirit is the One who testifies, because the Spirit is the truth. For there are three that testify—
Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) - We believe:
Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the creature is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar to make atonement for your lives—for it is the blood that makes atonement because of the life.
Psalm 2:7-12 I will declare the decree of Adonai. He said to me: “You are My Son—today I have become Your Father. Ask Me, and I will give the nations as Your inheritance, and the far reaches of the earth as Your possession. You shall break the nations with an iron scepter. You shall dash them in pieces like a potter’s jar.” So now, O kings, be wise, take warning, O judges of the earth! Serve Adonai with fear, and rejoice with trembling. Kiss the Son, lest He become angry, and you perish along your way—since His wrath may flare up suddenly. Happy is everyone taking refuge in Him!
Isaiah 7:14 Therefore Adonai Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin will conceive. When she is giving birth to a son, she will call his name Immanuel.
Isaiah 9:5-6 For to us a child is born, a son will be given to us, and the government will be upon His shoulder.

(Pele-joez-el-gibbor-Abi-ad-sar-shalom;) Of the increase of His government and shalom there will be no end—on the throne of David and over His kingdom—to establish it and uphold it through justice and righteousness from now until forevermore. The zeal ofAdonai-Tzva’ot will accomplish this.
Daniel 9:24-26 “Seventy weeks are decreed concerning your people and your holy city, to put an end to transgression to bring sin to an end, to atone for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy, and to anoint the Holy of Holies. So know and understand: From the issuing of the decree to restore and to build Jerusalem until the time Mashiach, the Prince, there shall be seven weeks and 62 weeks. It will be rebuilt, with plaza and moat, but it will be in times of distress. Then after the 62 weeks Mashiach will be cut off and have nothing.

Zechariah 12:10 “Then I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication, when they will look toward Me whom they pierced. They will mourn for Him as one mourns for an only son and grieve bitterly for Him, as one grieves for a firstborn.
Matthew 1:18-25 Now the birth of Yeshua the Messiah happened this way. When His mother Miriam was engaged to Joseph but before they came together, she was found to be pregnant through the Ruach ha-Kodesh. And Joseph her husband, being a righteous man and not wanting to disgrace her publicly, made up his mind to dismiss her secretly. But while he considered these things, behold, an angel of Adonai appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Miriam as your wife, for the Child conceived in her is from the Ruach ha-Kodesh. She will give birth to a son; and you shall call His name Yeshua, for He will save His people from their sins. ”Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by Adonai through the prophet, saying, “Behold, the virgin shall conceive and give birth to a son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which means “God with us.” When Joseph woke up from his sleep, he did as the angel of Adonai commanded him and took Miriam as his wife.

Colossians 1:15-20 He is the image of the invisible God,the firstborn of all creation. For by Him all things were created — in heaven and on earth, the seen and the unseen, whether thrones or angelic powers or rulers or authorities. All was created through Him and for Him. He exists before everything, and in Him all holds together. He is the head of the body, His community. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead — so that He might come to have first place in all things. For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him and through Him to reconcile all things to Himself, making peace through the blood of His cross — whether things on earth or things in heaven!
Revelation 17:14 They will make war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them—because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those with Him are called and chosen and faithful.”

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Ruach is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control—against such things there is no law.
Salvation (Eternal Life) – We believe
Genesis 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, after Our likeness! Let them rule over the fish of the sea, over the flying creatures of the sky, over the livestock, over the whole earth, and over every crawling creature that crawls on the land.”God created humankind in His image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them.
Isaiah 43:10-13 “You are My witnesses”—it is a declaration of Adonai—“and My Servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He.

So you are My witnesses”—it is a declaration of Adonai—“and I am God. From eternity, I am He. None can deliver from My hand. I act, and who can reverse it?”
Isaiah 44:6 Thus says Adonai, Israel’s King and his Redeemer, Adonai-Tzva’ot: “I am the first, and the last, and there is no God beside Me.
Isaiah 53:6 We all like sheep have gone astray. Each of us turned to his own way. So Adonai has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
Isaiah 59:2 Rather, your iniquities have made a separation between you and your God. Your sins have hidden His face from you, so that He does not hear.

Psalm 103:8-12 Adonai is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and plentiful in mercy. He will not always accuse, nor will He keep His anger forever. He has not treated us according to our sins, or repaid us according to our iniquities. For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His mercy for those who fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.
Matthew 26:28 for this is My blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the removal of sins.

Romans 5:8-12 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Messiah died for us.How much more then, having now been set right by His blood, shall we be saved from God’s wrath through Him. For if, while we were yet enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also boast in God through our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, through whom we have now received reconciliation. So then, just as sin came into the world through one man and death through sin, in the same way death spread to all men because all sinned.
Romans 6:1-2 What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin so that grace may abound? May it never be! How can we who died to sin still live in it?
Romans 10:9-10 & 13 For if you confess with your mouth that Yeshua is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11 Or don’t you know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Don’t be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, those who practice homosexuality, thieves, the greedy, drunkards, slanderers, swindlers—none of these will inherit the kingdom of God. That is what some of you were—but you were washed, you were made holy, you were set right in the name of the Lord Yeshua the Messiah and by the Ruach of our God.
Ephesians 2:8-10 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not from yourselves—it is the gift of God. It is not based on deeds, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship—created in Messiah Yeshua for good deeds, which God prepared beforehand so we might walk in them.
