A home for Torah observant believers in Messiah who desire an authentic Jewish walk of faith!
“Go and make people from all nations into talmudic (disciples), mikveh (immerse) them into the reality of the Father, the Son and the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit), and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you…” Matthew 28:19-20
We are called by Yeshua to make disciples not simply believers. A disciple is one who not only believes that Yeshua is L-rd but who makes Yeshua L-rd of their life. Our mission is therefore to train people to live a lifestyle of faith by becoming Torah observant. The Bible tells us that if we belong to the L-rd then we will prove it by obeying (implementing, observing, living-out) His commandments. (Ezekiel 11: 19-20, Matt. 7:21, Luke 6:46, John 10:27, 1 John 2:4) Sar Shalom’s mission is to encourage, train, and equip its members to become wholly devoted followers of Messiah.
“He will turn the hearts of the parents to their children, and the hearts of the children to their parents…” Malachi 4:6
In Judaism, the family is the central focus of worship and religious life. Thus, our mission its to provide, resources, training and ministry that will strengthen the family unit. We are focused on equipping men to be the priest of their home, women to be an honored Proverbs 31 woman and children to be a joy and delight to their parents. If families are healthy then the synagogue is healthy. Sar Shalom is a ministry focused on strengthening families.
“All the believers were one in heart and mind. No one claimed that any of their possessions was their own, but they shared everything they had.” Acts 4:32
Faith in the Messiah must be personal but our faith, itself, is not! We are called to be a community of faith. When you join Messiah you join a people; a family. We are called to be a robust community, sharing together, rejoicing together, mourning together, working together and succeeding together. Messiah prayed in John 17:11 that we should be echad (one) even as He and the Father are echad. In these end days, building and maintaining community will be all the more important (Hebrews 10:25).
Belonging is a core need of the human heart. We recognize this reality and the divine call to unity. Sar Shalom’s mission is to strive to build and maintain a true community of believers. Our synagogue members belong to an extended family. When we come together for worship we are not just a group of individuals gathered for a service, we are a family coming together as one…even as Yeshua and the Father are one!
“They will proclaim his righteousness, declaring to a people yet unborn: He has done it!” Psalm 22:31
“He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel (good news) to all creation.” Mark 16:15
“Therefore, let us be terrified of the possibility that, even though the promise of entering his rest remains, any one of you might be judged to have fallen short of it; for Good News has also been proclaimed to us, just as it was to them. But the message they heard didn’t do them any good, because those who heard it did not combine it with emmunah (faith/faithfulness).”
“Then, starting with Moshe and all the prophets, he explained to them the things that can be found throughout the Tanakh concerning himself.”
Chief among the areas of our mission is our call to proclaim Messiah Yeshua as healer, deliverer, savior, L-rd and King. Our mission is to proclaim Messiah to our city, our state, our nation and to the whole world. Everything that we do as a ministry must point to Yeshua HaMashiach.
Sar Shalom is called to proclaim Messiah and His way of life to the Jew and Gentile, young and old, male and female. Our desire is to be “A house of prayer for all nations” (Isaiah 56:7). Lifting up Messiah and declaring Him alone as the path of salvation is the cornerstone of our mission.
