Corner Fringe Ministries is a first century Judeo-Christian Messianic congregation returning to the Jewish roots of the faith in the Messiah Yeshua through the Hebraic understanding of the Scriptures.
“Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘In those days ten men from every language of the nations shall grasp the sleeve of a Jewish man, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.” Zechariah 8:23

We follow the
Divinely inspired Holy Scriptures, commonly referred to as the Old and New
Testaments, as God’s Holy Word for us to live by. We seek to understand the
Scriptures in the purest form possible, studying them from the Hebrew
perspective and in the Hebrew and Greek languages in which they were written.
Elohim is the Hebrew word for God.
God’s Holy Name as noted in the original Hebrew language of the Divine
Scriptures is YHVH, usually translated as Lord or Adonai in most Bibles. His Son’s
Name is Yeshua, translated as Jesus in English. The Holy Spirit is known as the
Ruach HaKodesh in Hebrew.
Our mission is to bring the Good News of
Yeshua/Jesus to both the Jew and Gentile, making disciples from all nations, teaching all to
believe, repent and follow Him.
We believe the Lord our God is one God – the
Father, the Son Yeshua/Jesus and the Ruach HaKodesh/Holy Spirit.
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our
God, the Lord is one! Deuteronomy
beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He
was in the beginning with God. All things were made through
Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him
was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light
shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There
was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the
Light, that all through him might believe. He was not that
Light but was sent to bear
witness of that Light. That was the true Light which gives
light to every man coming into the world. He was in the
world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He
came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. But as
many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to
those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood,
nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. And
the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as
of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1: 1-14
Is Jesus God?
We believe that salvation is through Yeshua/Jesus alone. We are saved by grace through faith, and not by works.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6Let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole. This is the ‘stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’ Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved. Acts 4: 10-12For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
God’s Mercy and the Devil’s Grace
We believe God/Elohim created all things whether in heaven or on earth or below the earth through His Son Yeshua
HaMashiach/ Jesus the Messiah.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. John 1:1-3
We believe the Bible, comprised of both the Old and New
Testaments, is the infallible Word of God and the contents within
are given by inspiration of God and are profitable for doctrine, for reproof,
for correction and for instruction in righteousness.
The entirety of
Your word is truth, And every
one of Your righteous judgments endures forever. Psalm 119:160All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for
reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness… 2 Timothy 3:16
We believe it is every believer’s responsibility to read and study the Bible themselves, to
hear, to learn, to do, and to fulfill His Word.
Gather the people together, men
and women and little ones, and the stranger who is within your gates, that they may hear and that they may learn
to fear the Lord your God and carefully observe all the words of this law… Deuteronomy 31:12
The Divine Nature of God Part 2:God’s Plural Nature in Genesis;John’s
Commentary on the Beginning
We believe that Yeshua/Jesus of Nazareth was conceived by the Ruach HaKodesh/Holy Spirit, was born in the flesh as a
man, and was crucified for the sins of the world though He knew no sin. Yeshua/Jesus
was resurrected on the third day
according to the Scriptures and He is now seated at the right hand of the
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was
as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came
together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Matthew 1:18And the Word became flesh and
dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of
the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14No one has
ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in
heaven. And as Moses
lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of
Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in Him
should not perish but have eternal
life. For God so
loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that
whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not
send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through
Him might be saved. John 3:13-17For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might
become the righteousness of God in Him. 2 Corinthians 5:21For I delivered
to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins
according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and
that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures… 1 Corinthians 15:3-4Here after the Son of Man will sit
on the right hand of the power of God. Luke 22:69
God’s Mercy and the Devil’s Grace
We believe it is Yeshua’s/Jesus’ blood that makes atonement for our souls and through Him the priesthood
has been changed. Yeshua/Jesus is our new High Priest according to the order of
For the life of
the flesh is in the blood, and
I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that makes atonement for the soul. Leviticus 17:11Seeing then
that we have a great High Priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the
Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. Hebrews 4:14For the priesthood
being changed, of necessity there is also a change of the law. Hebrews 7:12Now this is the main point of the things
we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of
the throne of the Majesty in the heavens, Hebrews 8:1And according
to the law almost all things are purified with blood, and without shedding of
blood there is no remission. Therefore it was necessary that the copies of
the things in the heavens should be purified with these, but the heavenly
things themselves with better sacrifices than these. For
Christ has not entered the holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true, but into heaven itself, now to
appear in the presence of God for us; not that He should offer Himself often, as the high priest enters the Most Holy Place every year
with blood of another— He then would have had to suffer
often since the foundation of the world; but now, once at the end of the ages,
He has appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of Himself. Hebrews
Discovering Your Calling Into Israel
We believe that
our Lord and Savior is coming back soon to gather together His children - the
elect of God - and bring the world into final judgment.
Then they will
see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and glory. And then He
will send His angels, and gather together His elect from the
four winds, from the farthest part of earth to the farthest part of heaven. Mark 13:26-27
Elementary Principles of the MessiahParts 3-6:
Resurrection of the Dead
We believe that the true followers of Messiah will
be sealed with the Ruach HaKodesh/Holy Spirit and will
thus be led by the same Spirit. It is this Spirit that testifies that Yeshua/Jesus
is the Son of God. It is the Spirit that convicts the world of sin. It is the
Spirit who is a Witness, an Intercessor, a Teacher, and a Helper. A true
believer has a very intimate relationship with the Spirit of God and will
produce the fruit of the Spirit for this is what was promised through the
Prophets, Jeremiah and Ezekiel. When the Lord anoints us with the Holy Spirit,
we have then become partakers of the promised New Covenant.
In Him you also trusted, after you heard the
word of truth, the gospel of your salvation; in whom also, having believed, you
were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise… Ephesians 1:13And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of
judgment… John 16:8But the fruit
of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness,
faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there
is no law. Galatians 5:22-23
Divine Nature of God Part 11: The Holy Spirit
We believe that if you love God, you will keep His commandments and all of His commandments are
summed up in this: that we love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and strength, and that we love one
another as Yeshua/Jesus has loved us.
Then one of them, a lawyer, asked Him a question, testing Him, and saying, “Teacher,
which is the great commandment
in the law?” Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your
soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ On these two
commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.” Matthew 22:35-40“If
you love Me, keep My commandments.” – Yeshua/Jesus John 14:15
We do not believe Sacred Name theology, a theology that believes that one
cannot use or say the English names of Jesus, God, or Lord, as they are seen as
corrupt versions of His Hebrew name Yeshua. We believe this theology is a
distraction from what true faith is based on: a relationship with and obedience
The History of HIS Name
We do not believe
in Replacement Theology, a theology that states the Church
has replaced Israel, nor Dual Covenant Theology,
a theology that claims there are different paths of salvation for Gentiles and
We do not believe
a KJV-only theology, a theology that dictates the
superiority of the King James Version of the Bible over all other versions,
even over the original Hebrew and Greek texts. We primarily use NKJV for
reading in English, but acknowledge that most translations convey a majority of
Truth. We believe in the importance of studying the Bible in its original
Discover Your Calling Into Israel Part 1: Grafting
in Gentiles; Jesus’ Desire to Unify Jews and Gentiles
We do not believe
in the majority of Calvinism, such as Once Saved, Always Saved. However,
we also do not believe that Christians are without sin, and we do not believe
that a single sin will cost a Christian his or her salvation.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is
not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all
We do not believe
in an Anti-Pauline theology. Anti-Pauline doctrine states
that Paul’s teaching is contrary to that of Jesus Christ and that therefore
Paul’s doctrines and his Epistles should be rejected. We believe that:
Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for
reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God
may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2
few scriptural examples proving the legitimacy of Paul’s ministry: Acts 9:1-18,
15:22; *1 Cor 9:1-2; *Gal 2:9, 2 Peter 3:15-16.
* Denotes books written by Paul; the others are
outside of Paul’s writings.
