Statement of Faith
The Vision of Operation Nehemiah Missions is to promote the Gospel of Yeshua Hamasciach that brings people to repentance and Eternal Salvation. Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” (Matt. 4:4)The Word Brings Salvation…for, Whoever will call on the name of the Lord shall be saved", 'How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher? How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, " How beautiful are the feet of those who bring the good news of good things." So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God" Romans 10: 14-17. We seek to minister to the body, soul, and spirit.
We believe that the Bible, consisting of the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments, 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.
God - The Father
That the unity of God is taught in the Shema. God is one – echad: a united one, a composite unity, eternally existent in plural oneness. He is a personal God who created us, and He exists forever in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Deut 6:4) (Gen. 1:1) (Gen 1:26) (Gen 2:24) (Rom. 8:14-17) (Matt. 28:18-20)God the Father:. God the Father is the King of the Universe, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, without beginning and without end. He is Spirit. He sent His Son, Yeshua the Messiah, and draws people to Him(John 6:27b) (1 Cor 1:3) (Gal. 1:1) (Rev 3:5, 21) (Jer. 3:4, 19) (Jer. 31:9) (Mal. 1:6) (Matt. 6:9, 32) (Luke 10:21-22) (John 1:14) (John 4:23) (John 5:17-26) (John 6:28-46) (Rom. 8:14-15)
Yeshua Hamasciach - Son
We believe God the Son is Yeshua – Jesus, the Messiah. He possesses both divine and human natures. He was born of a virgin. The Son is God and is worshiped as God. He has always existed. He is the Passover Lamb who takes away the sin of the world. We believe in His sinless life and His perfect obedience to the Torah, His atoning death, burial, and bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven, and His personal return in power and glory to this earth in order to consummate the prophesied purposes concerning His kingdom.(Ps. 2) (Prov. 30:4-6) (Luke 12:35-37) (John 1:29-34, 49) (John 3:14-18) (Isa. 7:14) (Luke 1:30-35) (Ps. 110:1) (Heb. 1:13) (Isa. 9:6-7) (Matt 28:18-20) (Phil. 2:5-11) (Col. 1:15-19) (Rev. 3:21) (Rev. 4:8) (Rev. 5:5-14) (Is. 9:6-7) (Is. 11:1) (Dan. 9:20-26) (Isa. 53) (John 1:17, 40-41, 45, 49) (Mark 8:29) (Num. 24:17) (Rev 22:16) (1 Cor. 5:7) (Rev. 5) (John 1:29)
The Holy Spirit - The Comforter
We believe that Yeshua promised the Holy Spirit, called “The Comforter” and the Spirit of Truth, to His disciples. He empowers us and seals us, leads us and teaches us. The Spirit comes to all who are saved. His indwelling enables us to live a godly life. God the Holy Spirit is a person, possessing all the attributes of Deity. He was active in the creation of the universe and continues to be active through His providence. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment; He regenerates, sanctifies, immerses, indwells, seals, empowers, illumines, guides, teaches and gives gifts to all believers.(Gen. 1:2b) (2 Sam. 23:1-3) (John 14:17, 26) (Acts 1:8) (Eph. 1:13, 4:30) (Rom. 8:9, 14-17) (Acts 2:38)
We believe that man was created in the image of God but through disobedience fell and became separated from God. All men are born with a sinful nature. Man’s only hope for redemption is by having faith in Messiah Yeshua. This results in salvation and regeneration by the Ruach HaKodesh which is the new birth. We believe that Yeshua died for our sins; that all who believe in Him are made right with God, not by any of their own works of righteousness, but by Messiah’s perfect righteousness and atoning blood, and that there is no other name under heaven by which we must be saved. Salvation has always been by Grace Through faith, and that works of law, or righteous acts, have never saved anyone. This is the New Birth. (Gen 1:26-27) (Gen 2:17) (Gen 3:22-24) (Ps. 14:1-3) (Ps. 49:7) (Isa. 64:6) (Rom. 3:9-12, 23) (Rom. 5:12) (Lev. 17:11) (Isa. 53) (Dan. 9:24-26) (1 Cor. 15:22) (Heb. 9:11-14, 28) (John 1:12) (John 3:36) (Tit. 3:5) (John 3:3-8) (Eph. 2:8-9)
Resurrection and Judgement
We believe in the resurrection on both the redeemed and the lost; the former to everlasting life and the latter to eternal separation from God, a state of everlasting punishment. His promised coming in the air to receive Messianic Believers to Himself. In the bodily resurrection of both the just and the unjust: the just to everlasting life and the unjust to eternal death and separati
