What We Believe
Ruach Outreach Ministries is committed to living out the truth of God's Word in demonstration of the power and influence of the Holy Spirit (Ruach Ha-Kodesh). We seek to share the truth of the Word with all who are willing to consider or learn of the teachings of God as He intends. It is our goal to uphold truth over tradition.
By exploring the Word of God as originally written (language, perspective and context), we are able to preserve the integrity of God's precepts and the intent of His Torah. As carriers of the Gospel of Christ, we recognize that His character must be revealed in our deeds. In order to exercise proper stewardship, our professional and personal conduct must demonstrate humility, integrity and accountability. As a church, we hold the following beliefs.
The Nature of God (YHWH)
We believe that there is one true and living God (affectionately known as Yahweh, the Great I AM). He is the eternal Creator and perfect Redeemer who is holy, loving and just in all His ways. His existence is made manifest in the inseparable nature of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh). The singleness of Elohim (God, YHWH) is unquestionable while His triune quintessence undeniable. YHWH rules the world with truth and grace. He is almighty, omnipotent and omnipresent. He is the giver of all life who enables us to love; for He is love. (1 John 4:7-8, 1 Chronicles 29:10, Matthew 6:9, Exodus 3:14).
YHWH sent forth His word at Creation and His Word became flash at the arrival of Christ Yeshua ("Jesus"). We believe the whole to be true and relevant to the life of every believer. Christ came that the Law ("Torah") might be fulfilled. He did not abolish the Law. Rather, He came that we might have life abundantly. In leaving, He sent forth the Comforter, the Holy Spirit (Ruach Ha-Kodesh) to empower the Believer to keep the precepts and the intent of the Original Torah of YHWH (Yahweh, "God").
We believe that God (YHWH) created the heavens, the earth, and everything therein. During which time, He demonstrated His unparalleled power to create ex-nilho (from nothing); speaking the world into existence by His Word. He went on to create mankind in His own image from the dust of the ground. To further reveal His will and love for man, He then breathed the RUACH breath of life into his nostrils. Thereby, man became a living soul. Since the Fall of man in the Garden, it is connection with this same attribute that man has longed to regain. Apart from Christ, he lives life in an endless search of fulfillment.
Fortunately, the Father chose to manifest Himself in the Son, Christ Yeshua ("Jesus"). Through whose earthly life and sacrifice, Salvation has been made available to all who hunger and thirst after righteousness. He declares that those who do so are blessed for they shall be filled (Matthew 5:6). Christ paved the way for righteous living in that He was tempted of the devil and yet did not sin. He showed us that, “Man cannot live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of Yahweh Elohim (Matthew 4:4).
Just before returning to Heaven, Christ encouraged His followers not to become anxious. He had completed His primary mission on Earth. As our Bridegroom, He had to return to the Father’s house to prepare a place for those who would dare believe on Him. It was then that He promised to send the Holy Spirit as our Comforter.
The Great Commission
Christ commands that we, “go...therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 28:18).
At Ruach Outreach Ministries, we hold these truths to be evident in the lives that we lead; lives of integrity, virtue, purpose, and promise. It is our intent to avail ourselves to answer the needs of the community at large. Our conduct will reflect the love of the Father, the character of Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit; that is to say the fullness of the joy of YHWH. For like David, to Him we say, “Thou will show me the path of life: in your presence is fullness of joy; at your right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (Psalm 16:11).
