We Believe that a strong Messianic fellowship begins with solid relationship between the individual and our Elohim, Who is Himself, relational, or echad in Hebrew.
Unless YHWH builds a house it will be in vain, so we advise that it is best for there to be a clear calling as a basis for starting any fellowship group.
Our personal desire to do so is, alone, not enough!
A Messianic fellowship needs to encourage individual faith for its members and yet also is dependent on the integrity and committment of those individuals.
See our series of "Community Teaching Moments" on our main site (www.Set-Apart-Ministries.org)
These brief 1-2 page commentaries address common situations fellowship groups face and outline how people at different maturity levels might be expected to respond.
Here is one example on the process of Identifying and Meeting a Community Need..
You will find them on the right side in the What's New column! They are meant to be conversation starters, and will be discussed as part of the soon coming Leadership Training teleconference course. Email for further info!

Our Definition of Messianic Community
A multi-generational group of interdependent, like-minded people with a clear, stable identity based in YHWH, mutually defined and articulated as in a growing organism, with structure, authority, and boundaries; generally based in recognition of attained maturity, and the shared goal of set-apart living in daily interaction;
an interdependent network of covenant relationships based in Echad with Messiah Yeshua.
