Building a serving heart
Study and education
Reflecting Eternal Father’s love through true sonship
“Seasons in life do not define you, but they will refine you.”
Yisrael Ben Avraham
The greatest commandment given to us is to love the Lord our God with all that we are. The greatest yes we have in response to the Lord’s command is to embrace His love for us. Our vision is a labor of love. The heart that serves is a heart that loves. This single most important power gives Etz H’Chayim a love where salvation is more than a confession but a way to life.
We present a Hebraic position to include Torah observance while accepting the revelation of Yeshua in Brit H’Chadash, New Covenant. We do this through ongoing learning communities, books, study programs, seminars, conferences and guided Israel tours. Our aim is to help renew the believer's faith, by encouraging discipleship, and the whole Word of God.
“Salvation is a gift, discipleship is a process.” Dwight Pryor, Judeo Christian Studies, Founder
In Hebraic thought, study is one of the highest forms of worship. The mission of Etz H’Chayim is to promote a life of study and learning. This is a privilege, not a power. It is a responsibility, not a right. We live creating an atmosphere of restoring Hebraic biblical culture with social relevancy and spiritual sensitivity. As a community of Judeo-Messiah like disciples in Yeshua and by his example: We declare, We explain, and We demonstrate.
Tanakh / Brit Chadashah Reference
“You shall, therefore, impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul, and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates." (NASB)
Yeshua came and talked with them. He said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make people from all nations into talmidim, (disciples) immersing them into the reality of the Father, the Son, and the Ruach HaKodesh, (The Holy Spirit) and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember! I will be with you always, yes, even until the end of the age.” (CJB)
"Beloved is Man who was created in the Divine image.” Avot 3:14
Justice, loving-kindness, and humility is the threefold cord not easily broken. Etz H’Chayim’s objective is to reflect Eternal Father’s will in the earth. We purpose to achieve the Lord’s standard of biblical learning, research, and community service. The goal is to produce opportunities designed to assist humanity in becoming aware of environmental, social, political stewardship in both spiritual, and secular communities.
Tanakh / Brit Chadashah Reference
"He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?"
"Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven."
