St. George Messianic Fellowship is a congregation comprised of Jewish and Gentile followers of Yeshua as the promised Messiah of Israel. Consistent with the tenets of Messianic Judaism, our faith and practice maintains Jewish identity as believers who have been “grafted into” the nation of Israel; the good olive tree of faith (Romans 11.17-25) becoming spiritual sons and daughters of Abraham (Galatians 3.28-29). We follow a modern-day biblical culture that is representative of the life and teachings of Yeshua.
Our congregational practices and teachings are based on the whole of the TaNaKh (the five books of Moses, the Prophets, the Writings) as well as the Brit Chadasha (the New Testament). Along with the TaNaKh, the New Covenant is taught from its inherent Jewish perspective, with the recognition that both were written by faithful Jewish men of Elohim.
In keeping with the Biblical roots of the Jewish heritage, we observe the Biblical Feasts and Holy Days of Elohim according to Leviticus 23, given by Elohim to His people, Israel, out of love for Him and love for our neighbors because we are saved. The true “Biblical Judaism,” the faith of first century believers, which we seek to practice, acknowledges the continuity of faith in the one true God, revealed throughout the Scriptures, and ultimately manifested in God’s Son, Yeshua the Messiah. Salvation has always been “by faith,” and that works of law, or righteousness acts, have never saved anyone (Genesis 15.6; Romans 2-6; Ephesians 2.8-9; Hebrews 11.6, 39).
In addition to incorporating various traditional elements, we apply New Covenant understandings and instructions to the foundational teachings within the Torah. Above all, we emphasize in our worship experience and walk with Jehovah, a growing, vibrant personal fellowship with the living Elohim of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob because of the finished work of Messiah Yeshua, which is made available for all who call upon His Name.
