Brenham Torah Community is a local community of believers in Yeshua (Jesus) who seek to love God, love their neighbors, and keep the commandments. Our mission is to provide a community-based framework by which the people of Washington County, Texas, can know Yeshua, walk out Torah, and grow Godly families.
Who We Are
Brenham Torah Community is a congregation of believers in Yeshua (Hebrew for Jesus) and the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that gathers weekly for prayer, worship, study, & fellowship.
Our mission is to provide a community-based framework by which the people of Brenham and Washington County, Texas, can know Yeshua, walk out Torah, and grow Godly families. We want to help Brenham be a community of believers in Yeshua who love God, love their neighbors, and keep the commandments.
Who We Are Not
We are not a debate club. We are not an arm of the civil government or a public welfare system. We are not beholden to extra-biblical commentaries and teachers. We are not enforcers of doctrinal purity. We are not on a mission to convert Jews to Christianity nor Christians to Judaism.
When & Where We Meet
We meet in private homes in the Brenham area at 2 PM every Saturday afternoon and for the biblical feast days. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for up to date information.
What We Believe
We are a congregation of believers in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Messiah and King of Israel, the only begotten Son of God, conceived in Mary by the Holy Spirit, and that He died and was resurrected on the third day.
We believe that the sixty-six books of the Bible are a divinely-inspired, accurate record of God’s interaction with mankind, that the Torah (the first five books) is the Law of God in written form and the foundation for all other Scripture. We believe that the rest of the Bible builds on and clarifies Torah, but can never overrule or change it. No one is authorized to change the Law of God, and although traditions and teachings concerning Torah can be good and helpful, they are not themselves Torah. We believe that the Torah is God’s standard of behavior for all mankind.
We believe that Gentiles are grafted into Israel through faith in God’s mercy as evidenced in the blood of Yeshua, and that no one can earn citizenship or eternal salvation through any action of their own. We believe that the physical descendants of Jacob are natural born citizens of Israel and Israel will always be God’s chosen people.
After working through the Torah (the first five books of the Bible) numerous times as a group, we are currently focused on studying the Gospels, accompanied by Ryan White’s teaching series, The Gospel Cycle. Except for special occasions, we will be meeting in Brenham, Texas, on the 1st and 3rd Sabbaths of each month and at Seeking Messiah in Paige, Texas, on the 2nd and 4th Sabbaths. If there is a 5th Sabbath in a month, we will be taking that week off.
