Pillars of Faith

* The Preeminence of Messiah Yeshua: Yeshua of Nazareth is Israel's Messiah and G-d Himself who came in human flesh.
* The Permanence of Torah: All G-d's commandments and covenants continue throughout all time.
* The Promises to Israel: All the prophecies and promises which G-d gave to Israel in the Holy Scriptures will come to fruition.

Mission Statement and Summary of Scripture Faith

MBIs mission statement is:
# To proclaim the good news about Messiah Yeshua to all who will shema (hear/understand).
# To facilitate the Messianic Jewish Restoration until all Israel is saved; to the Jew first and also to the Gentile or non-Jew.
# To teach righteousness to all people through the eternal Torah of the Most High, in preparation for Messiah's return.
# To provide diplomatic communications for all involved in the Messianic Movement, the Jewish Revival and the Kingdom's Restoration.
# To achieve these ends with integrity through every available open door.

MBIs Summary of Scripture Faith:
* Adonai (YHVH) revealed in the Holy Scriptures is the One true G-d; He is our G-d. Yeshua (Jesus of Nazareth) is the Messiah of Israel, revealed as YHVH in the flesh.
* His death is the valid permanent sacrifice for sin, and His resurrection is the promise of eternal life, for all who trust Him.
* The scriptures are authored by the Ruach (Breath, Spirit) of G-d through human agency. YHVH indwells those who obey Him with His Holy Breath (Ruach HaKodesh).
* All who trust YHVH as Avraham did, obeying His Voice (His Messiah), they are the offspring of Avraham by covenant.
* Those who are the righteous redeemed show themselves to be obedient with love in all their living, bringing glory to YHVH.
* The only true Torah (Teaching) of the Most High is that which is written in the Holy Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation.
