Beliefs | Objectives | Ethical Statement

SBMF Beliefs:                                                                     

We believe that the Torah, the prophets and the Holy Writings were given by God through ancient Jewish holy men who wrote as God directed them. We believe that this collection of inspired writings, the Tanach (Old Testament), is true and inerrant.

We believe that the New Covenant is the fulfillment of the prophecies of the Tanach, especially of Jeremiah 31:31 (verse 30 in some editions) in which God promised to give to Israel a New Covenant. We believe that the Tanach and the New Covenant comprise the Divinely given, inerrant Word of God, which is God's complete and final revelation.

We believe that Yeshua, Who was born in Bethlehem and grew up in Nazareth, is the Divine Son of God, the Son of David of the Tribe of Judah, the true Messiah prophesied in the Torah, the Prophets and the Holy Writings (Genesis 49: 10; Deuteronomy 18: 15 - 18; Isaiah 53; Jeremiah 23:5- 6; Micah 5:2 [1]; Psalm 2; Psalm 22; Proverbs 30:4; and many more!)

We believe that all people of the world are invited to be a part of Israel's New Covenant by trusting in Israel's Messiah, (Isaiah 42:6-7; 49:6; 60:3).

We believe that forgiveness of sin comes only through a blood atonement as stated in the Torah (Leviticus 17: 11) and that the only atonement God accepts today is the atonement made by Messiah Yeshua (Psalm 2: 12; Isaiah 53: 10-11; John 14:6; Acts 4: 12).

We believe that Messiah Yeshua was resurrected from the grave to be the eternal Priest of the New Covenant (Psalm 16: 10).

We believe that Messiah Yeshua is coming back to earth to rule the earth in a Kingdom of Righteousness. We believe that He came the first time as the Suffering Servant of Isaiah 53 to make atonement for sin, And that He is returning to set up God's Kingdom on earth (Isaiah 2; Isaiah 11; Daniel 7; Matthew 19: 27-28).

The Southern Baptist Messianic Fellowship is a group of believers in Jesus who share the love of the Jewish Messiah with Jew and Gentile alike. We specialize in telling the Jewish people group about their Jewish Messiah. We also minister to the gentiles in a full testament format. We are an ethnic ministry of the Southern Baptist Convention. Our members are also affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention in some way. The SBMF is also a member of the Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism (LCJE). Our Members affirm the faith statements of the Baptist Faith and Message ( and the Lausanne Covenant. The LCJE is a group of many Jewish evangelism organizations from around the world. (

The SBMF is Committed to Certain Objectives:          

  1. The worship of Yeshua Hamashiakh (Jesus Christ) as Lord and Saviour.
  2. The evangelism of the world's Jewish population in the belief that Yeshua IS THE Jewish Messiah as well as the Son of God and Saviour.
  3. To encourage Jewish believers that their ethnic and historical heritage need NOT be lost upon their commitment to Yeshua.
  4. To encourage planting of Messianic Jewish congregations and fellowships as worship homes for Jewish believers and their families.
  5. To encourage the Church to partner with us in evangelizing the Jewish people.
  6. We understand the Baptist Faith and Message and its relationship to the Southern Baptist Church. Many of the congregations associated with the SBMF minister to a spicific people group and many worship on the Biblical Shabbat.

We are ready to meet the people in churches to discuss and bring the message of the need for this biblically mandated ministry (Romans 1:16).

Ethical Statement Relating to Jews and Gentiles:        

Since we believe that Yeshua is the true Jewish Messiah Who takes away the sin of the world, and that we are Scripturally obligated to present this "good news" to everyone, we resolve that:

  1. We will try to present the message of redemption through the atonement of Messiah Yeshua with love and compassion to Jews and Gentiles throughout the world.
  2. We strongly condemn anti-Semitism and all derogatory statements or actions against any ethnic, racial, or religious groups.
  3. We will abstain from the use of trickery or deception in presenting the message of salvation through Messiah Yeshua. Also. it is not our intent to forcibly present this message during our attendance at traditional Jewish places of worship. religious gatherings, or at public or private events which are organized by the traditional Jewish community.
  4. Since it is commonly accepted in the Jewish community at large that "it is not what you believe that makes you a Jew. but who you are." those of us who are Jewish and believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the true Messiah of Israel will continue to identify ourselves as Jews.
  5. Those of us who are Jewish believers in Messiah Yeshua and follow the cultural ways of our ancestors will not claim to represent Traditional Judaism.
