Beth Yeshua is the results of hearts yearning to seek God.
Beth Yeshua, formally known as TAP Ministry, is founded in the year 2020 by the Elders of what was known as The Awakening Place Ministries. After ten (10) years proclaiming the good news of Yeshua under The Awakening Place, as a congregation we concluded that a time for a change was necessary. We decided to change from TAP, to Beth Yeshua, for many reasons, but primarily, because of our new phase in ministry and calling. A new phase that includes identity, principles, and doctrine.
Beth Yeshua is a Reformed Messianic Congregation. Since our Awakening in 2010, we have seen how God is restoring the obedient part of scriptures to the Body of Messiah. Today, many believers from all races are responding to the calling of obedience by desiring to live holy and sanctified lives in a Hebraic context.
The primary goal of Beth Yeshua is to see all of God’s people “living holy and godly lives” (2 Peter 3:11) according to the whole of Scripture, including the Torah, since all Scripture, including the Torah, is “God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness…” (2 Timothy 3:16). Proclaiming the Good News of Yeshua, making disciples, or any other important work for the kingdom are natural byproducts of a Biblical, Spirit-led lifestyle in the Messiah.
To equip the body of Christ/Messiah with the pure truth of His Word so that they might be free from whatever may be holding them back from being all that God has created them to be (Eph. 4:12). We accomplish this by studying the Scriptures from the Hebraic perspective in which it was written and putting all of our religious biases, antisemitism, and man-made doctrine and traditions aside for the sake of understanding and living only HIS truth.
11 Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called “uncircumcised” by those who call themselves “the circumcision” 12 remember that at that time you were separate from Messiah, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world.13 But now in Messiah Yeshua you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Messiah. (Eph 2:11-13, 3:4-6, NIV)
While every disciple is a believer, not every believer is necessarily a disciple. Here at Beth Yeshua our main goal is to make every believer a faithful and obedient disciple of Yeshua by providing the tools needed along with mentorship and other resources that include historical biblical context, language, and culture.
Natural birth and culture may give privileges and honor, but do not guarantee acceptance. Many are called but few are chosen. There are many good things in all religions and cultures; there are many things held in common between them; for there is one God, who by His Spirit works in the world among all people whom He created in His image. Yeshua/Jesus alone has the words of eternal life.
