We, at David Salinas Ministries, believe that God rewards those who diligently seek Him (Heb 11:6).
We believe in the One true God described in the Hebrew scriptures as the Elohim (God) of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob (Exod 3:6); The I AM of Moses; The El Shaddai, our God Almighty (Gen 35:11); and YeHoVaH, our Lord and creator of all things visible and invisible (Col 1:16).
We believe in the infallible Word of God in its original language. We believe that the Messiah of Israel, and the world, is divinely interwoven throughout both the old and new testaments and therefore bears one consistent theme and message.
We believe in Yeshua Messiah (Jesus Christ) who is the Son of God (Luke 1:35), our Passover Lamb sacrifice (John 1:29,36), the Word made flesh (John 1:1) who came to dwell among us (John 1:4) as Emanuel (God with us, Matt. 1:23). We believe He came to restore the lost sheep of Israel (Matt 10:6, 15:24) and establish the renewed covenant as spoken of by the prophet Jeremiah (Jer. 31:31). We believe Yeshua/Jesus came to perfect the Torah and did his part to fulfill the Torah commandments. He did not diminish or make the Law of God null and void (Matt 5:17-19, Mark 7:7-13).
We believe Yeshua/Jesus, became the blood sacrifice and therefore the propitiation for our sins by dying on a tree and rising again three complete days later. This as a fulfillment and according to the sign of the prophet Jonah (Matt 12:40). We believe that Yeshua’s first coming fulfilled the Spring Feasts of the LORD (Lev 23) as the suffering servant, and will come again to fulfill the Fall Feasts of the LORD (Lev 23) as the conquering King.
We believe that the Messianic Jewish Apostles did not add or take away from the Torah commandments/instructions/Law but merely discussed and taught (midrashed) or expounded upon principles that already existed in the TaNaKh (Old Testament). We believe they honored the Torah and upheld its significance in the believers’ life.
We believe in ONE Torah for ALL people and that Israel was indeed chosen as God’s first born (Exod 4:22) and Messiah granted us the ability to be joined with the commonwealth of Israel (Eph 2:11-18) to be priests and prophets to the nations (Deut 4:6, 1 Pet 2:9). We believe just as the scriptures say that there will be no difference between believing gentiles and believing Jews (Lev 24:22, Num 9:14) as to the instructions for how to live a good and long life or to the reward one receives by the LORD.
We believe in the power of prayer and that the effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man or woman avails much (James 5:16). We believe in the doctrine of laying on of hands (Heb 6:2) for healing (Mark 16:18, James 5:14), the infilling of the true spirit of God (The Holy Spirit according to Acts 8:18, 19:6), the stirring up the Gifts of the Holy Spirit (2 Tim 2:6, 1 Tim 4:14) and ordination (Acts 6:3-7).
We believe in keeping the appointed times and seasons of YeHoVaH by following the calendar He ordained at creation (Gen. 1) which is based on a lunar/solar cycle. We believe that the weekly Sabbaths (Friday sundown to Saturday sundown) and the Feasts of the LORD (the high Sabbaths in Lev 23) are fixed positions on God’s time clock. We believe that keeping these appointments are not grievous or cumbersome, (Matt 11:30) but they allow us to move in time with the divine order of YeHoVaH.
