    “Wherever you hear the sound of the trumpet, join us there.  Our God will fight for us!”    

    (Nehemiah 4:20)

We are a congregation of Jewish and Gentile believers who follow after the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob through the Jewish Messiah, Jesus of Nazareth. So, we follow the Jewish culture, calendar, festival days and traditions in worship and lifestyle, except when tradition is contradictory to the Holy Scriptures. We are serious about Bible Study and training disciples of Jesus so we can introduce Jews to their Messiah.
