Mezuzah.jpgSHALOM ~ Welcome!!

Kehilat Emet (Fellowship of Truth), an affiliate of the International Association of Messianic Congregations and Synagogues (IAMCS), is a Messianic Jewish fellowship who welcomes both Jews and Gentiles to join us and worship as first century Believers did, in spirit and in truth. We meet each Friday at 7:30 p.m., as well as the first Shabbat of the month at 11:00 a.m. We are located at 6909 Macon Road Suite 30, in Columbus, Ga.

Kehilat Emet is a congregation of Torah observant Believers who continue to adhere to Biblical feasts and observances, as well as those celebrations that bring honor and glory to the One true God of Israel. We also encourage our congregants to observe Biblical kosher practices, not those made by man.

We'd love to have you join us for services, as well as stay for Oneg (confections and conversation) afterwards. We look forward to seeing you for Shabbat!

Shalom B'Yeshua - Peace in Yeshua (Jesus)

    Who Are Messianic Jews?

    In the first century there were several sects of Judaism. Pharisees, Sadducces, Essenes, Herodians and others including Messianic, or in one place recorded as the Sect of the Nazarenes. [Acts 24:5] We find our roots in this group that was recorded in Acts which has its roots in the teachings of the Jewish Messiah, Yeshua. We do recognize the wonderful teachings of "Moshe Rabinu", [Moses the Rabbi]. These instructions from the Almighty that have been the foundation of the governments of the Western World, are accepted as God's word by the nations. Now, we as Messianic Believers, both Jewish and non-Jewish in origin have come together to follow the teachings of the Messiah Yeshua in a Messianic Jewish way.

    Messianic Judaism has distinctive characteristics. Apostle Paul [Rav Shaul], in writing to the Corinthian congregations said:

      "and to the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might win the Jews; to those who are under the law, as under the law, that I might win those who are under the law;

      to those who are without law, as without law (not being without law toward God, but under law toward Messiah), that I might win those who are without law;

      to the weak I became as weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.

      Now this I do for the gospel's sake, that I may be partaker of it with you." [I Cor. 9:20-23]

    I might add, you have to love Messianic Judaism to follow in this lifestyle. Our calling is to the Jew first and also to the nations. Our presentation and the words we use vary from nominal Christianity, in this way: we call ourselves Messianic Believers instead of Christians. We call our congregations kehilah or congregation instead of church. We recognize the Ruach Ha Kodesh [Holy Spirit], versus the wording of Holy Ghost. We recognize the immersion in water as the mikveh and not baptism. We recognize the Messiah as Yeshua, by His Hebrew name, that his mother and his disciples called him, rather than a later Greek version of Jesus the Christ. When we see and recognize Jewish members in our congregation, they are referred to as Messianic, completed or fulfilled Jews rather than converts. Because a Jewish man or woman becoming a believer in the Messiah does not make them a convert, as they are still following Judaism. Only when those of the nations who become followers of Yeshua the Messiah are they called converts, because they have left the pagan religions of their forefathers, and accepted the God of Israel and the Messiah that He sent.

    In our services, you will find Messianic Davidic dancing. Our singing has Hebrew melodies in the minors. We light Shabbat candles, and recite Hebrew Shabbat prayers. We read and study the Torah and have commentaries on the Shabbat. It is common to find Saturday evening services called Havdalah. We use Jewish symbols and keep Jewish holidays. As our children grow up and reach the age of 13 for boys and 12 for girls we have bar and bat mitzvah celebrations, which is a custom in Judaism. Our children are taught Jewish history and also Scriptures of prophecy for the future. Traditional Jewish foods are prepared from our Jewish Holiday cookbooks, and you will find mezuzot on our doorposts and gates. In short, we follow a Messianic and a Jewish lifestyle. We are not ashamed of our heritage, but proud of our roots. We welcome the friendship and fellowship of Christians who are friends of Israel, and as Zionists we fervently support the restoration of our nation Israel.

    If you have never visited a Messianic congregation, come and join us as we worship the Messiah together. Jewish and non-Jewish believers in Messiah Yeshua worshiping together where the middle wall is broken down. The peace that the Prince of Peace promised can come into our lives and unite us for the cause of bringing in the Messianic Kingdom and the welcoming of the return of our Messiah, Yeshua.
