Christ’s Creek Mission
Articles of Faith
That the Bible, consisting of the Hebrew Scriptures or Tenach (a Hebrew acronym for Torah, Prophets, and Holy Writings) and the Messianic Scriptures or
the B’rit Chadashah, is the only infallible and authoritative Word of God. We recognize its Divine inspiration, and accept its teachings as our final authority in
all matters of faith and practice. (II Tim.3:16-17, Heb.4:12-13, Jer.1:12, Jer.23:29, Jn 5:39, Ps.119:9-16, 89, 105; Ps.138:2, Pr. 3:1-6, Deut 6:4-9, II Pe 1:21)
We believe that the Shema, “Hear O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one” (Deut.6:4), teaches that God is Echad. He is Triune and One; He is eternally
existent as a plural oneness [Gen.1:1(Elohim: God); He is a personal God who created us according to the Scriptures Gen. 1-2, and that this Triune God
exists eternally in 3 distinct persons: The Father, ABBA, Son, Yeshua, and Holy Ghost, Ruach HaKodesh-Matthew 28:18-20 [The teaching on water
immersion or mikveh in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost]. (Mt 3:13-17)
We have been created for an intimate relationship with our heavenly Father (1 Cor 1:9, Eph 3:9, Phil 2:9, and 1 Jn 1:3, 6). His name is YAHWEH/Yehovah (Gen 2:4;
Ex ). He is Self-Existent (Ex 3:14), eternal (Deut 33:27; Rom 1:20; 1 Tim 1:17; 1 Pe 5:10) without beginning or ending (Ps 41:13, 90:2, 93:2, 106:48; Isa 26:4,
40:28, 63:16; Jer 10:10; Hab 1:12; Rom 16:26). He is the Head of Christ, and subordinate to none. (1 Cor 11:3 & Jn ) He is the pattern that His Son,
Yeshua, was made in the image (Heb 1:3) of and only begotten (Jn , 18; , 18; Acts ; Heb 1:5-6, 5:5, 1 Jn 5:1) of the Father. Also, the Father,
put all things under Yeshua’s feet (1 Cor -58). He gave the power to Christ. (Matt 28:18 & Jn 17:2) He loves, gave, sent, commanded, gave to, spoke
to, and was separated from His Son, Yeshua (Mk ).
ABBA desires a relationship with us. Therefore He sent His Son, Yahshua (Mt ) to be the propitiation for our sin (Rom 7 1 Jn ) so that we
might also be born of God and begotten (1 Pe 1:3; 1 Jn ). He has adopted us (Rom 8:15; Gal 4:5 Eph 1:5) into His family as joint-heirs with our Messiah,
Yeshua (Rom 8:17) and also heirs according to the promise (Gal 3:29; Eph 3:6; Heb 6:17) and eternal life (Titus 3:7) thus being ministered unto by His holy
angels as Heirs of Salvation (Heb 1:14) even as they ministered unto Yahshua (Mt 4:11; Lk 22:43).
HaBen the Son; Yeshua:
According to the Scriptures we believe that Yahweh has a Son: Psalm 2, Proverbs 30:4-6, Hebrews 1, Luke 12: 35-37, John 1:29-34, 49 and John 3:14-18
That Yeshua (Jesus) means salvation or Yah who is salvation in Hebrew. Isaiah and Luke -35
Furthermore, we believe in the Deity and sinless perfection of Yeshua HaMoshiach; Jesus the Christ, according to Hebrews 1:13, 4:15, 7:26; Isaiah 9:6-7;
John 1:1-2,14; Colossians 1:15-19, 2:9, 1 Timothy 3:16; Psalm 110:1; Philippians 2:5-11 and Revelation 3:21. In His pre-existence and incarnation Colossians
; 2:9 and Philippians 2:5-8: that He was born of a virgin Isaiah 7:14 and Matthew 1:18-25.
We further believe His death atoned for our sin and provided for the salvation of man Matthew 20:28; Romans -25 and 2 Corinthians 5:21. Therefore He is
the promised Moshiach of Yisrael Isaiah 9:6-7, Chapter 53, 1:1 Daniel 9, John 1:17, 40-41, 45, 49 and Mark 8:29. He is the root and offspring of Melech
David, the Bright and Morning Star. Numbers 24:17, Revelation 22:16 That He is our Passover Lamb and the Lamb of Yah 1 Corinthians 5:7, John 1:29 and
Revelation chapter 5.
We believe that He rose from the dead physically and has ascended to His throne at the right hand of the Father where He is interceding for His church as
the Great High Priest according to Romans 8:34, Hebrews 4:14-15 and 1 Corinthians 15.
Furthermore, we believe that He will return not as a lamb to be slaughtered again, but as the Coming King in the Air, receiving His bride to Himself
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, 2 Thessalonians 2, John 14:1-6, 1 Corinthians 15:51-57. Isaiah 59:20-21 and Zechariah 14:4.
Because of this, salvation is afforded to us by the Grace of God through His Son, Yeshua and that this is complete in Him alone John 3:16,
Ephesians 2:8-10 and Titus 3:5. The faith needed to receive salvation is a gift of God and apart from any human merit or works John 20:1-17, 1 Corinthians
15:1-8, Acts 1:9-11, Ephesians 1:20-23 and Ephesians 2:1-9.
The Holy Spirit; Ruach HaKodesh:
The Ruach HaKodesh was present during creation Genesis 1:2. In the Tenach He came upon individuals and inspired them for specific purposes 2 Samuel
23:1-3, 2 Peter 1:16-21.
In the Brit Chadashah, Yeshua promised his believers that He would send another Comforter, the Spirit of Truth in John 14:17-26 who was with them and
would be in them. The Ruach would guide them into all truth and glorify Yahshua John 16:13-15. The Ruach empowers the believers, seals them, leads
them and teaches them according to Acts 1:8, Ephesians , , Romans 8:14-17. His indwelling presence enables us to live holy lives.
As Believers we are given gifts by the Ruach HaKodesh that enables us to be the salt and light in the earth. This was promised by Abba in Joel 2:27-29.
Isaiah 28:11-12, Luke 11:9-13. This is called the spiritual mikveh,and this immersion of the Ruach Hakodesh or the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and Fire is
performed by our Moshiach, Yeshua Matthew 3:11, Mark 1:8, Luke 3:16 and John 1:26-33. With this baptism the gifts vary according to our asking and
needs and described in Romans 12:4-8, 1 Corinthians chapters 12 and 14. These gifts are not to be confused with the fruits of the Ruach which should be
evident in each believer’s life Galatians 5:22-23. Without His Spirit, we are not His Romans 8:9 Acts 2:38.
Man was created in the image of Elohim. Genesis 1:26-27, 2:7-8, 5:1-2; Deuteronomy 4:32, 32:18; Isaiah 45:12-18; Romans 9:20; Ephesians 3:9; Colossians
1:16; Revelation 4:11 and 10:6.
Through disobedience man fell from his original state, became separated from Elohim (God) and all men are born with a sinful nature according to the
Scriptures found in Genesis 2:17, 3:1-24; Psalm 14:1-3, 49:7, 53:13; Isaiah 64:6, Romans 3:9-18, 23 and 5:12.
Our only hope is to be born again John 3:3-8; John 1:12; quickened or brought to life by the Ruach Ephesians 2:1-3, John 6:63 born of God 1 John 3:9, 4:7,
5:1-18; and of the Son John 5:19-21. This is why Abba Sent His Son Yahshua to be our Moshiach (Messiah).
Furthermore, we believe in the resurrection of all of mankind. Those who refuse to accept the finished work of Yeshua will be eternally separated from Yah
in a state of everlasting punishment; those who are redeemed by accepting the finished work of Moshiach to everlasting life according to the Scriptures
found in Job 14:14, 19:25-27; Daniel 12:2-3, John 3:15-17, 36; 11:25-26, Luke 16:19-31; Acts 24:14-16, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Revelation 20:5-6, 10-15,
21:7-8 and 22:1-5.
As believers and followers or Talmidim of Yeshua, we are a Miqra Qahal (Hebrew) or Ekklesia (Greek) or congregation is a called out assembly.
(Exodus 19:6; 1 Peter 2:9) We are called to be separated from this world 2 Corinthians -21, -18; Leviticus 20:7-8; 1 Peter 1:9-25. We are to be the
salt and light in the world Matthew 5:13-16; Mark 9:49-50; Luke 14: 26-35; Colossians 4:4-6 and in 1 Corinthians 5:1-13 we are told that we are not to keep
company with those that profess the name of Yeshua and live as fornicators, covetous, idolaters, revilers, drunkards or extortioners. But with those that
commit fornication that are covetous, extortioners, or idolaters in this world we are not to be separated from them or else we must go out of this world.
Therefore, our goal should be the maturity of our faith as one in Moshiach according to Ephesians 4:1-16, 1 Thessalonians 4:1-8; Titus 2:11-15 and
We shall be known by our love that we have for one another John 13:34-35, Romans and 1 John 4:1-8. Our love for one another the evidence or
fruit by which we are united and manifest to the world John -26; 1 Corinthians -14:1, , Colossians , 1st Timothy 1:5, ; 2nd Timothy ;
1st Peter 4:8 2nd Peter 1:2-9.
We have received our authority and commissioning from Messiah Yeshua in Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-18; Acts 1:1-8) We are overcomers (1 John 4:4,
1 John 5:1-5; Romans 8:37-39) and we overcome the enemy by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. (1 John 5:4; Revelation 12:11)
Messianic/Hebraic Roots Doctrine
We recognize that Jewish people, the physical offspring of Abraham, Isaac and Israel (formerly known as Jacob) which place their “emmunah” (faith) in the
Messiah Yahshua continue to be Jewish according to the Scriptures found in Acts 21:17-26; Romans 1:16, 2:28-29 and Colossians 2:16-17. Those from
among the goyim or nations (gentiles) that place their faith in Messiah Yeshua are grafted into the Jewish olive tree (Romans -25) and become the
spiritual sons and daughters of Abraham (Galatians -29).
We observe and celebrate the feasts and festivals of YHVH as given by Elohim in Leviticus 23, Numbers 28 & 29. We realize that these are fulfilled in our
Messiah and are still a shadow of things to come (Colossians -17). Also, we believe that these Mo’edim (appointed times) of YHVH are prophetic with
many still yet to be completed or fulfilled with the return of our Messiah Yeshua, the establishment of His kingdom and the birth of the new heaven and
new earth. The observances of these Mo’edim do not birth salvation only by faith in Yeshua HaMoshiach can one be born again.
Praise Yahweh that the m’chitza (wall of partition) that has separated the Jews and Gentiles has been broken down forever removed by Yeshua’s death on
the stake according to Ephesians 2:12-14. Therefore the renewed covenant body of Messiah consists of both Jewish and Gentile believers who have
accepted as their Messiah Yeshua and that they worship Elohim together as one body (John ; 1st Corinthians ; Hebrews )
Many pagan practices have crept into the House of YHVH and have deep seated roots in the vain traditions of man. The observances of these practices
will be exposed and lovingly removed by the continual study of TORAH (ALL 66 Books) and comparing what is observed in modern day Christendom verses the Messianic
community of the early Church. (Matthew 15:1-10; Colossians 2:6-9) These traditions have their pagan roots grafted into the body of Messiah through the
catholic church. They consist of all celebrations related to Tammuz being chiefly “all holidays related to Mary, Epiphany, Ash Wednesday, all and any
“saint” holidays, Lent, Maundy Monday, Good Friday, Easter, trinity, the Nativity, all angels, all hallows eve, all saints day, all souls day, nativity fast day,
advent, yule, “Christ” mass eve and day, Feasts of holy innocents, holy family and watch night called new year’s eve.
The “god of this world” has seduced the followers of Messiah and they have committed fornication, eating those things sacrificed unto idols (Revelation
2:20; 1st Corinthians 10:14-21). They follow the doctrines of the Nicolaitans by exalting the clergy over the laity or the people, lording themselves over the
people. Yeshua warned the 12 disciples of this error in Matthew 23:2-11 and Luke 22:24-28).
Israel in Prophecy
We believe in Yah’s end-time prophecy concerning the nation of Yisrael and the world. We believe in the physical and spiritual restoration of Yisrael
according to the Scriptures. (Ezekiel 34:11-31, 36-39; Amos 9:11-15; Zechariah chapters 12-14; Isaiah chapters 11, 43, 54, 60-62 and 66; Romans 11:1-34)
These are the basic tenants of our faith. This is not an exhaustive list; we teach the entire Word of Yah and disciple others to do likewise.
