A Note From Us To You


Shalom and welcome to Beth-El Messianic Family website. We are a new congregational family (mishpacha), connected to each other as members of a community based on our shared love for Adonai Elyon (Lord God Almighty). We are both Jews and non-Jews who are grafted into the Jewish tree; making us one people who believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the promised Jewish Messiah and who trust Him and live according to His ways. We recognize that the Jewish Messiah came to bring salvation and freedom for all people and we take great joy in living a lifestyle similar to the original Jewish and Gentile followers of Yeshua.

We praise, worship, and hear Adonai’s words together regularly on Shabbat (Sabbath) – Friday night sundown through Saturday night sundown and on other days of the week. We also value the richness and joy in celebrating the festivals and holidays that Adonai instituted in Torah. Our desire is to assist each other as disciples of Yeshua to know Gods mission plan and find ones place in it. While we may have various programs, projects, activities and events in the life of the congregation, our purpose is God’s mission to be salt and light, involved in the communities He has placed us in as well as Israel – the Land that has our and God’s heart forever.

Thank you for your interest in Beth-El Messianic Family. If you are Jewish, as you can see, you will feel right at home. If you are not Jewish, you will quickly become comfortable as you understand that you have been grafted in to a tree with Jewish roots. Please feel free to continue browsing this site to learn more, and know that I warmly welcome you to come experience a Shabbat service for yourself.

Shalom Aleichem,

Joel van Ameringen
Senior Elder
