Statement of Faith

What We Believe

As a Messianic school whose students come from a variety of Israeli Messianic congregations, with somewhat different viewpoints or teachings, we recognize that there are diverse expressions within the Messianic movement and, as a school which accepts all of these families, we choose to promote the basic doctrines which are common to all of us rather than emphasize other doctrines which may not be equally shared by all or interpreted in the same way.  Therefore, the following are the more classic and shared biblical doctrines of those families whose children attend Makor HaTikvah:

  • We believe that Yeshua the Messiah, the Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Miriam, was crucified, dead, buried, resurrected; that He ascended into Heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father and is true God and true man. (Luke 1: 26-35; John 1 14-18; Isaiah 7:14, 9:6)
  • We believe the Bible, in its entirety, to be the inspired Word of God and the only infallible rule of faith and conduct. (II Timothy 3:16; I Corinthians 2:13)
  • We believe in the salvation of sinners by grace, through repentance and faith in the perfect and sufficient work of Messiah, through his death and shed blood, by which we obtain remission of sins. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9:12, 22; Romans 5:11)
  • We believe in water immersion as a declaration of leaving the old man behind and being raised to a new creation under the Lordship of Yeshua the Messiah.(Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:34-36, 19:1-6)
  • We believe in the soon-coming, personal, visible return of Yeshua the Messiah. (John 14:2-3; I Thessalonians 4:13-18)
