Who We Are
As a loving congregation, Congregation Beth Simcha is dedicated to the Great Commission of Yeshua (Jesus) as expressed in the Good News of Mattityahu (Matthew) 28:18-20, as well as in Romans 1:16 which states: "For I am not ashamed of the Good News, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first, and also to the Gentile."
Consequently, the Beth Simcha membership includes Jewish believers and people from a wide range of backgrounds and ethnicities. The congregation is one in the Lord and it remains united by the power of Ruach HaKodesh (the Holy Spirit), and by the belief that Yeshua is the Messiah of Israel and King over all nations. He is the center and focal point of our faith.
The Jewishness of Biblical faith in Messiah Yeshua is expressed at Beth Simcha through Torah reading, prayer, Messianic praise music, Davidic dance, Hebrew study, as well as in the observance of the Biblical feasts.
Our desire is to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness (Matthew 6:33), and to share our faith with all peoples in a culturally sensitive way. We also desire to provide an environment where believers can be edified and encouraged in their relationship with God as we grow in our knowledge of the Messiah, Yeshua.
It is our prayer that the Lord would bring the Church back to an understanding of its Jewish heritage and roots so that both Jew and Gentile may know the spiritual reality of being one in the Messiah.
We prayerfully uphold the nation of Israel and its importance to the believing community and to the world.
We choose to magnify and glorify the Lord, by maintaining a consistent and Godly testimony before the world as we live by Biblical morals and principles.
