The mission of Beth Shalom Ministries reveals the heartfelt passion of every our member to know Jesus Christ, see ourselves as He sees us, live as he intended according to His Word, and effectively share the same with others. The goal of our mission is that of coming to know Christ and the power of His resurrection. We deliver the gospel of Jesus Christ to all people, Jews and gentiles, develop them through training, and prepare them for their destiny in God. Beth Shalom Ministries is a Christ centered church which makes disciples, trains leaders and plants churches. Our mission’s statement is clear and simple, and we hope that you see it reflected in the music and the programs you hear. We promote a Christian worldview, present clear instructions in God’s word and praise the Lord with song and music. Beth Shalom Ministries strives for excellence for the sake of God’s glory in everything we do.
Why is there the Cross and the Star of David? Our Statement of Faith will help you to find the answer. We truly believe that God did not forsake the nation of Israel, and we believe that Israel will be the center of all major events in the last times we are approaching.
You cannot walk into a bank without being greeted by an armed security guard or two. These guys have been hired for two reasons. One, there is something valuable in the bank. Two, there are people committed to stealing that money. The guard's job is to make sure the money is not stolen. In the same way, Paul admonished Timothy to guard the good deposit...with the help of the Holy Spirit - 2 Timothy 1:13-14.
We call the good deposit God has invested in our ministry "core values." Although all biblical truth is important, our core values define who we are as a movement of churches and ministries. These core values must be guarded or they will be stolen. The following five core values are the building blocks of Beth Shalom Ministries. Whether we are planting a new church or organizing a music team, these core values describe how we build.
We believe in One, True and Living God, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Almighty, Omniscient, Everlasting and Sovereign Creator of the Universe. We believe that Holy Bible is true Word of God given by the inspiration of God, His revelation about Himself in the books of the Scriptures in Old and New Testaments. We believe that a human being was created in the image of God, but separated from God spiritually as a result of falling into sin. We believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the only Son of God, Messiah of Israel and of whole world. We believe that He is a Word of God that became flesh. We believe that He was conceived by Holy Spirit. We believe that He lived a life completely free of sin. We believe that He was crucified, died and resurrected on the third day for us to be redeemed according to the Scriptures; that He ascended to the heavens and sat at the right hand of power of God the Father, where He intercedes for us. We believe in personal salvation of believers not according to the works, but through confession the sins and through grace according to the faith in sacrificial death of the Messiah and His Blood shed on the cross. We believe that the Holy Spirit abides in every born-again believer with the acceptance of the Messiah into one's heart. We believe in the water baptism by immersion as the commandment of Jesus for all believers to be baptized in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. We believe in the resurrection and eternal life for the believers and eternal damnation of the unbelievers. We believe that we are called and sent by Jesus to preach Gospel to all creatures, "first for the Jew, and then for the Gentile", and to be His witnesses around the world. We believe that return of the Jews to the Land of Israel is the fulfillment of the Bible prophecies and God's unconditional and irreversible covenant with Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. We believe that God did not reject His chosen people (nation of Israel), but He will fulfill all promises about them; and that remainder of Israel will be saved when number of Gentiles becomes complete. We believe that the Body of Christ is being composed from the born-again Jews and Gentiles, and Jesus the Messiah is the Head. We believe that Jesus the Messiah will return in flesh to the earth in the power and the glory of the King of kings and Lord of lords to establish His messianic Kingdom in Jerusalem, Israel.
Because Jesus is "King of kings and Lord of lords" we believe that whole-hearted submission to God's will and his word is the starting point of the Christian faith and the foundation of all spiritual growth.
Because we are called to make disciples, our primary focus is on ministering to people not conducting meetings, administrating programs or building buildings.
Because God's heart is to reach the lost, we seek to build churches primarily through evangelism not transfer, through birth not adoption.
Because we are called to raise up spiritual leaders, we prioritize leadership training and deliberately create opportunities for young potential leaders to develop their gifts.
Because the family is the foundation and validation of all ministry, we refuse to sacrifice our marriages and our children on the altars of temporal success. And, because we believe God has called us to be a spiritual family, we reject the idea of disposable relationships and choose to walk in lifelong covenant, love, respect and unity.
