K'hilat Memphis is a group of folks, Jewish and Gentile, who get together to study the scriptures, pray together and attempt to communicate our beliefs to others. We generally tend to think for ourselves, yet, surprisingly, we discover that when we do so, we tend to be more in agreement than not.
There's a saying that "dead things float down stream. Living things swim against the current." Not because we want to, but out of necessity, we've learned that we have to "swim against the current". In other words, we are not held back by tradition.

We believe that the complete Bible consists of the Tanakh (Old Testament, consisting of Torah, Neviim and Ketubim (The Law, the Prophets and the Writings) and the B'rit Hadasha (New Testament).
We believe that the Bible is the very Word of the Creator God of the Universe and is therefore the final authority in all matters pertaining to doctrine, the nature of God and the meaning of life. All speculations, assumptions and assertions must be evaluated according to what the Bible says on the subject.
We believe that the Tanakh is entirely about Y'shua (Jesus) the Messiah, what He is supposed to be like and what He is to accomplish. It is therefore, entirely in harmony with the B'rit Hadasha.
We, therefore, hold that the Bible is the only "Holy Book" that makes a valid claim to legitimacy.
We believe that Y'shua is the only means by which one can obtain eternal life.
We believe that, by virtue of what the Bible says, the Jewish people have and will continue to survive history.
We believe, contrary to popular opinion, that The Messiah, Y'shua, plus Zionism are going to be the only actual means by which peace will come to a world that is at war.
We don't care what so called "Holy Book" to which you refer, whether it is written in Sanskrit, Arabic or English, it doesn't have words that carry the meaning or weight of those in the picture to the left. Any other book might claim to have been dictated by an angel or reasoned out by human endeavor. However, only the Bible makes the claim of the above words... AND GOD (the infinite creator of the universe) SPOKE.
AND GOD SPOKE and there was light.
AND GOD SPOKE and a boundary was established separating the sky from that which was below it.
AND GOD SPOKE and a boundary was established between the waters and dry ground and plant life was created.
AND GOD SPOKE and balls of light were created in the sky.
AND GOD SPOKE and birds and sea creatures were created according to their species.
AND GOD SPOKE and land animals in all their variety and man were created.
Sadly it seems that when God speaks, all of creation listens and obeys for the exception of man!
