What is a Messianic Fellowship or Messianic Congregations

Messianic Fellowship or Messianic Congregations include synagogues, churches, congregations, home groups, etc. They believe that the Bible is one complete book from Genesis to Revelation and is the Word of God.

They believe that Yeshua (Jesus of Nazareth) is the foretold Messiah from the prophets of the Tanakh (Old Testament). Typically they teach and practice Jewish style worship and Torah study because they are seeking to restore faith in the Jewish Messiah to its Hebrew Roots as described in the bible. The pattern that God gave Moses for the original Hebraic culture describes the pattern of the New Jerusalem. Whereas the Christian culture that developed in latter years had value, it is presently serving as a distraction from the true biblical faith, especially for Jews coming to faith in Messiah. The Christian culture as we know it today was founded on removing Yeshua (Jesus), the Jewish Messiah, from the true Jewish context of the faith. Messianic congregations are restoring the Hebrew Roots in preparation for the reconciliation of the two houses of Israel.

This is not a new concept, as we know, the first century church of believers in Yeshua were Jewish men and families who followed the laws of Torah as best they could and believed that Yeshua fulfilled the Torah perfectly. As He said Himself, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Torah or the prophets, I come not to abolish but to complete.

Yes indeed I tell you that until heaven and earth pass away, not so much as a yud or a stroke will pass from the Torah - not until everything that must happen has happened. So whoever disobeys the least of these commands and teaches others to do so will be called least in the Kingdom of Heaven.

But whoever obeys them and so teaches will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. For I tell you that unless your righteousness is far greater than that of the Torah teachers and the Pharisees, you will certainly not enter the Kingdom of Heaven” Matthew 5:17-20 CJB
