About Us

Who We Are

KHM is a synagogue comprised of both Jewish and Gentile followers of Yeshua (also known as Jesus) as the promised Messiah of Israel. Consistent with the tenets of Messianic Judaism, our faith and practice maintain a Jewish identity, heritage, and culture that is representative of the modern-day movement among Jewish people for Yeshua.

Our congregational practice and teachings are based on the whole of the Tenach (the Torah, the Prophets, and the Writings) as well as the Brit Chadasha (the New Covenant Scriptures). Along with the Tenach, the New Covenant is taught from its inherent Jewish perspective, with the recognition that both were written by faithful Jewish men of G-d.

In keeping with the Biblical roots of our Jewish heritage, we observe the various Biblical Feasts and Holy Days of the L-rd. 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 the L-rd, a growing, vibrant personal relationship with the Living   G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob because of the finished work of Messiah Yeshua, which is made available for all who call upon His Name.

Articles of Faith

We believe in One G-d as declared in the Shema (Deut. 6: 4), who is "Echad", a "Compound Unity", eternally existing in three persons - G-d the Father, G-d the Son, and G-d the Holy Spirit (Isa. 48: 16-17, Gen. 1: 1, Ex. 3: 6 and Eph. 4: 4-6).

We believe in Messiah Yeshua's deity (Isa. 9: 6, John 1: 1,4). His virgin birth (Isa. 7: 1,4), His sinless life, His atoning death (Isa. 53, Psl. 22), His bodily resurrection, His ascension, and His future return in power and glory.

We believe the Bible, consisting of the Tanakh (the older Covenant Scriptures) and the Brit Chadasha (the newer Covenant Scriptures), to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of G-d (Psl. 119: 89, Prov. 30: 5-6, 2 Tim. 3: 16-17); that the Torah (the first five books of the older Covenant) is G-d's divine revelation for holy living (Deut. 30: 15,16,19,20, Rom. 7: 12; 8:2); revealing His Nature and standard of righteousness and truth (Rom. 2:13,20, Psl. 119:142).

We believe that man, through his sin, is separated from G-d (Isa. 59: 2, Eccl. 7: 20, Psl. 53: 3, Isa. 64: 5-6). Relationship can be restored with G-d by man's repentance, through G-d's grace, based on faith in Yeshua's sacrificial death. We are then cleansed and fully reconciled to G-d (Heb. 2: 17, 2 Tim. 1: 10, 1 Peter 1: 18-21).

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, who indwells all believers upon confession of the Messiah (Acts 2: 38-39, Eph. 1: 13). The Holy Spirit enables us to live godly lives and empowers us to understand and apply the Word (Eze. 36: 26-27), to exercise all Biblical gifts, and to do the service of the L-rd (Rom. 12, Gal. 5: 22-23).

We believe in G-d's eternal covenant made with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We therefore stand with and support the Jewish people and the State of Israel and hold fast to the Biblical heritage of our forefathers (Gen 17: 1-8).

More Knowledge for Better Understanding

In an organization such as a Messianic synagogue, we believe that a person is known by the company he keeps. You can know more about us and our faith, heritage and culture by our affiliations.
