Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

KJV
Ecclesiastes 12:13

In his day, King Solomon was the wisest man on the face of the earth.  Filled with knowledge and wisdom, he would have certainly had opinions on practically any facet of life, especially matters dealing with God, angels, the afterlife, and other things 'biblical'.  But as he neared the end of his unique and colorful life, he had determined that the only thing that really mattered was his relationship with his creator, and what he should do to please Him.

Many in the Hebraic walk have begun to understand that what they had once been taught may not necessarily be true.  A renewed zeal for the scripture and a quest for the 'truth' has made Bible students out of former bench warmers, and many who had once been taught "the truth" are now teaching their version of "the truth" to others.  But is our quest for truth more important than the simple walk God intended for His people.

The scriptures are replete with instructions for us to "keep His commandments", but somewhat silent when it comes to what we are to believe.  Yes, we must come to believe that Yeshua is our Messiah, but our belief is based on the testimony of those Jewish men who saw Him, observed His walk, and compared what they saw to the abundant prophecies about Him.  It was His walk - what He did - that convinced them. 

As we follow in the footsteps of The Messiah, it's our duty to emulate His walk.  It doesn't really matter what we believe about things we can't prove one way or another.  Messiah didn't tell His disciples to "go into the world and teach the things you believe".  Instead He said to "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, "teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you . . ." (NKJ Matthew 28:19-20).

Thus, the focus of the Ami Yisrael fellowship is to teach the walk God gave His people - the same walk Yeshua lived perfectly.  Scripture tells us that we come to know Jesus by how we emulate His life - "And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments." (ESV 1 John 2:3). 

Our fellowship consists of those from various religious backgrounds.  Though we are free to discuss our views without fear of accusation or retribution, the discussion of our individual beliefs is not considered to be as important as our striving to walk in His way.  But even though our views on some subjects vary widely,  one of our core beliefs is wrapped up in our name - Ami Yisrael.  What is Ami Yisrael?  The translation of the above Hebrew letters is "my people Israel".  Are we claiming to be Jewish?  No . . . but according to the writings of the Apostle Paul ". . . if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise."  Thus, we believe that we are just as much a part of the people of Israel as are the Jewish people, and therefore, we have just as much responsibility to Israel's Torah-based lifestyle and to Israel's messiah (Messiah Yeshua) as the Jewish people themselves.

Our fellowship is devoted to teaching believers in our East Texas area about their identity in Israel and the subsequent blessing of realizing they are not 'Gentiles', but truly are - along with our brother Judah - a part of Israel, the people that so many of YHVH's prophets have written about throughout the pages of the Bible.  Because we believe that YHVH - the god of Israel, as well as His son Yeshua the Messiah are constant and unchanging (Hebrews 13:8), we know we can count on Him to fulfill those prophecies and begin to re-gather His people as this age draws to a close.

To summarize our common beliefs, we believe that:
