“Melech Ha Olam”
“King of the Universe” Congregation
Melech Ha Olam is a Messianic Jewish Congregation founded on Yeshua HaMashiach (“Yeshua The Messiah”) who, according to the Hebrew Scriptures, died as an offering for our sins, was buried, rose again on the third day, is now seated at the right hand of the Father, will return to rule and reign as King of Kings and L-rd of L-rds, and will judge at the final resurrection to eternal life or death. We worship the G-d of Avraham, Yitz’chak and Ya’akov in a style of first century synagogues where followers of Yeshua from both Jewish and non-Jewish backgrounds assembled in unity. Our obedience and service to our King are founded upon the Torah, Tanakh (the “Old Testament”) and Apostolic Writings (New Testament), and sealed by the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit), as sources of Truth and Spirit.
Our prominent mission is to bring the Gospel of Salvation by faith in Yeshua to the Jews and Gentiles (Romans 1:16-17), who do not yet know Yeshua as Mashiach. Secondly, we provide a Synagogue environment and Congregation to worship G-D on His calendar in a Biblical, Hebraic lifestyle by: 1) Obeying the words and actions of Yeshua, and, 2) Maintaining an identity with Israel and the Jewish people (Romans 11: 11-15, 25-29).
With Yeshua, who reconciles to the Father a single body within the covenants and commonwealth of Israel, we pursue His restoration and unity into this single new humanity, thus making shalom and a spiritual dwelling place for the Father. Whether the natural born root or the grafted in branch of the olive tree of Israel, we are all fellow citizens and members of the family of El-hei Israel (the G-d of Israel). (Ephesians 2 and Romans 11)
We endeavor to fulfill G-d’s mitvot (commandments) to:
Teach people from all nations to obey everything that He has commanded us. (Matthew 28:20).
Lead people into the Kingdom of G-d and maturity in His truth, encouraging and aiding their growth by being built up in the Word of G-d, faith, wisdom and holiness. (1 Timothy 2:4, Colossians 1:28).
Form a mishpachah/”family”, community and center where teaching and worshipping as “One New Man” becomes a reality, bringing fellow citizens together to honor and celebrate our Father — our King, on His appointed times. (Leviticus 23, Ezekiel 36:23, Romans 11:11).
Establish a place for sharing and building lives together in G-d’s love, wherein His people can utilize the equipping of gifts, visions and callings, both individually and collectively. (1 Corinthians 13 and 14).
Teach Scriptural truths, to understand the foundations upon which to build faith – including Feast days – and to understand G-d’s mitzvot to the commonwealth of Israel. (Isaiah 56, Ephesians 2:19-22, Matthew 5:17-18).
Experience G-dly music, drama and dance, and to express joy and worship of our King – all to His honor and glory. (2 Chronicles 5:13-14, 2 Samuel 6:14,21, Psalm 30:11-12). Incorporate a Shabbat school, to train the way for our young people. (Proverbs 22:6).
Outreach into the local community, including teachings and providing for the physical needs of widows, orphans and the poor. (Isaiah 1:17).
