WHAT ARE WE ?
Leeds Messianic Fellowship is a place where Jewish and Gentile followers of Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus) meet to worship and proclaim Him as Adon (Lord). This is done in a Jewish cultural context. Yeshua is our central focus, but we recognise that He was and is and forever shall be a Jewish man.
We believe that, until we reground our faith on the original cultural ground from which it sprung, we shall forever be out of focus in our faith.
LMF wants to highlight the truth that Christianity is Jewish and encourage church leaders to take a stand against anti-Semitism. LMF is not party political; we are for both Jews and Arabs.
WHAT IS MESSIANIC ?
Messianic comes from the Hebrew Mashiach (Messiah) and Christian comes from the Greek christos (Christ). In terms of meaning and emphasis “Messianic Jew” refers to Jewish disciples of Yeshua who want to serve their Messiah as Jewish people, rather than being ‘ethnically cleansed’ by ignorance.
WHAT IS FELLOWSHIP ?
LMF provides a home for Messianic Jews. We encourage those who attend to “keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” Ephesians 4:3. LMF seeks to complement not compete the wider body of Messiah in Leeds.
Leeds Messianic Fellowship is part of the British Messianic Jewish Alliance of Fellowships, which in turn is associated with the British Messianic Jewish Alliance. BMJA represents individual Messianic Jews while BMJAF is an umbrella organisation for Leaders of Messianic Fellowships around Britain.
