We are a group of believers in Messiah Yeshua who keep Shabbat-(aka Sabbath) being the 7th Day-(Saturday...Genesis 2) and All of the Feasts of YAHVEH found in Leviticus 23, Zechariah 14 and 1Corinthians 5:7-8, we even keep Chanukah-John 10:22, 1 & 2 Maccabees, and Purim/Feast of Esther, and did you know that in the Book of Esther that the title Lord/Adonai, God/El, Gods/Elohim or even His name YAHVEH is never mentioned, and yet you can see His Marvelous Power Working throughout the whole Book.
We also Worship in the Hebraic-(Jewish) manner because our Messiah was Jewish and He left us an example to follow in His Footsteps-1Peter 2:21 and Yeshua-(aka Jesus) being the Messiah of the World and the ONLY Son of Elohim/God the FATHER 'whom no one knows-John 1:18 & 5:37', we teach from the WHOLE BIBLE (known as the Old and New Testaments or Tanach and ReNewed Covenant), being very careful as not to include the false traditions, and doctrines of men that go against Scripture. WE TRY VERY HARD TO SHARE THE TRUTH WITH LOVE, for without LOVE we have nothing! Yet Yeshua says in Matt.19:17 "if you will enter into life; Keep the Commandments', and 1John 5:3 states: For this is the love of Elohim, that we Keep His Mitzvot (His Commandments): and His Commandments are not grievous. and as Proverbs 7:2 says: Keep My commandments, and live; and My Torah(Law) as the Apple of your Eye. And there’s a lot more! YAH's Torah is supposed to be the first thing in our Lives, even before your spouse! 'Yeshua' is the Word 'the Torah' made Flesh, so He didn’t replace YAHVEH, He IS YAHVEH in Flesh form! We believe that the Bible interprets itself and that our style of worship closely resembles the way our Messiah-(a Jew by birth) worshiped while He was here on this earth and He put 10 of these Basic Rules we call Laws on Stone with His own finger-(Ex.20) before He became a man to die for our sins and right after Speaking them to the People at the foot of Sinai! Ex.19:23-20:19 and as 1 John 3:4 states: "Whoever commits Sin also transgresses the Torah/Law: for Sin is the Transgression of the Torah." YAH's Law is Yeshua's Law, since YAHVEH put Himself in a human body to become Yeshua to die for us, showing they are One and the Same Elohim/Deity! I know a lot of people think that YAHVEH was the FATHER and sent His son, but Yeshua said: "No man knows the Father, nor seen His Shape or Heard His Voice EVER!" John 5:37 and yet Moses seen and heard YAHVEH! Did Yeshua lie? YAH Forbid! (See Teaching) 'Holy Name of the Creator' and see the Teaching 'Under the Law means What?' It will help with understanding YAH's Torah and who He was and is, and we don't work for our Salvation but at the same time: 'Faith without Actions/Works is Dead' James 2:20, so we must do something, you cannot do nothing! So take action and show others the way to Messiah Yeshua! The word for END in Romans 10:4 means Goal!
Our Goal here is to try our best to imitate our Messiah who died for us, He was Jewish, He lived like a Jew, He ate as a Jew, Lev.11 and Deut.14 and He worshiped as a Jew and He wrote all these Laws anyway John 1:1. Imitate means to copy as close to the original as you can. That's why it's important to look up words in Scripture. Yeshua has His reasons why He gave His Laws/Rules and ask us to follow Him. So if a person truly wants to follow this Jewish Messiah named Yeshua, then they should want to follow His example-1Peter 2:21, then like it or not, you'll worship in a Jewish manner, for He did, His disciples did and even Paul and to prove He did-Acts 21:23 and He made these rules for us to live by, a God that doesn't change-Malachi 3:6. Gentiles didn't come into the body, (except a few), until Peter and Paul went out to share the Good News of Yeshua and His soon coming Kingdom, which wasn't the day Yeshua died nor His ascension gentiles came in, but a while after He left this earth. He said: "If you love Me, keep My Commandments" and "By this shall all men know that you are My disciples, if you have love one to another." John 13:35 Just think of it as a Child adopted into a family, at first they are under a certain amount of grace with just a few basic Rules-Acts 15:20, but after a while they are expected to learn and keep all the Rules-Acts 15:21. There are so many scriptures that point to Yeshua never changing the things HE SET UP ‘From the Beginning’.

Don't get your Hopes up, but we have seen a few Miracles happen here:
1) a member Mike was on death’s door a couple years ago and went through a special 1st time surgery, he died on the operating table and was dead for over 20 min. as they were getting ready to sign the time of his death, and as they were cleaning up, a man realized he was breathing, Mike is still with us as of 6-14, but they didn't get all the blood clots out, one went behind his left eye and he had a small stoke (now here's anther Miracle): after test in ILL and him still having them, within one day as he came to IN, they said their MRI showed NO Blood clots! His left side from the stroke was paralyzed, and now he can move his left arm! Just waiting on the leg and he's home! THAT'S MIKE's, and his faith was Strong!
2 & 3) Two Couples said that they couldn’t have children and today they both have sons, one around 10 & the other around 12 yrs old.
4) Our Sound Tech (Nathan) his mother was almost dead of 'Marcy' and we prayed and he rubbed a special blend of anointing oil (with frankincense, myrrh & more) and she was well in a couple days and in a nursing home in a couple more days and was at Service on the June 14th and now is at home!
5) Just in June-2014, Yeshua sent a man’s wife back to him, as both had backslid, and now they both worship Yeshua and they put Him as the Center of their Marriage! I cannot say you will have a Miracle but I have seen my share and every day that we wake up and have another change to Worship Messiah, that's a Miracle.
Plus all the small Miracles at the very moment we needed them, to us all Miracles
Shalom-(Peace) in Messiah Yeshua
