BARA MINISTRIES:
A SACRED NAME MINISTRY
MISSION STATEMENT

       The main objective and mission of BARA MINISTRIES is to provide a fertile environment where the full fruits of the Spirit may grow among all of its members.

Our mission and goals:
As a tree planted by the rivers (Psalm 1:3) bears sweet and nourishing fruit, so too our Assembly is a Spiritual organism seeking to bear the fullness of the fruit of the Spirit. We are a Spiritual family rooted and grounded in Yahshua Messiah (Col. 2:6-7). He is the vine and we are the branches (John 15:1-2). We are identified as New Covenant Israel, the Israel of Yah (Gal. 6:16), the Spiritual family of Yahshua, bearing the fruit of true genuine mature faith, love, unity, and harmony.

Through worship, teaching, Scripture reading, and by our example, we encourage those in our fellowship to grow into Yahshua Messiah in thought, word, and deed. We lead, guide, encourage, and lend a helping hand to those among us who stumble or grow weary.

As Believers, we worship YHVH God under the name Yahuah, as well as the Messiah, Yahshua, and hold to the continuing validity of the moral principles found in both the Old and New Testaments as our Spiritual roadmap and guide to life. In promoting the laws of Yah among our membership, our objective is never to condemn, disparage, or denigrate those among us who need strength, hope, encouragement, or direction, but to point out the way and guide them on to the path to life inYahshua Messiah.

As a multi-cultural assembly, we seek to overcome our differences, and work to promote understanding among all of our members. We believe that true unity can only be achieved in Messiah and in becoming the true children of Abraham together through faith. (Rom. 2:28-29, Gal. 3:7, 29) All of this we set ourselves to do in the Name of Yahshua the Messiah and by the Power of Yahuah and His Holy Spirit. Amen!

BARA: The Hidden Message of YHWH In Biblical Hebrew Word Pictures!

The word "BARA" is a Hebrew word meaning "create" or "creation." We read in Genesis chapter one, verses 1, 2, and 21, "In the beginning Elohim created the heaven and the earth...And Elohim said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And Elohim created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and Elohim saw that it was good." (Sacred Name Version)

Hebrew letters also stood for word-pictures. For example, the Hebrew letter "a" was named "alef" meaning an ox. The Hebrew letter "b" was named "bet" meaning a house. The Hebrew "g" or "gamel" meant a camel, and this is in fact the source of our English word for that animal. Many English words have a Hebrew origin by way of Greece or Rome.

In addition, combinations of Hebrew letter "word pictures" also told a composite story. For example, the Hebrew word "bara" was a combination of the ideas "house, head, and power;" in other words conveying the thought that "the head of this house is seated in power."

For those of us involved in Bara Ministries, the head of our homes is the Almighty Yah Elohim, spelled in Hebrew as YHWH or YHVH, and pronounced as "Yahweh" or more probably as "Yahuah" since the letter "w" (a double-u) was not in the original Hebrew alphabet. We invite you to learn more about the wonderful Creator we serve on our articles page.

We also encourage you to grow closer personally to the Almighty by using His personal Hebrew Holy Name, Yahuah, and our Savior's name in Hebrew, Yahshua. Our Savior's name is also spelled Yeshua. This is explained in greater detail on our articles pages.
