Thesis 4: We believe that all the Covenants since Abraham have been made with Israel.

We believe that the covenants made with the patri- archs remain valid for Israel. These covenants include the land, the nation, the blessing and the Davidic kingship, as well as the covenants regarding the priesthood of Levi, the city of Jerusalem and the covenant of peace. We believe that the New Covenant, too, was made with the House of Israel and the House of Judah, and that the Church has been engrafted into this covenant through faith in Jesus Christ. Of this new Covenant the signs are the broken body and spilt blood of our Lord. We believe and confess that Jesus will come as the Messiah of Israel to turn away godlessness from Jacob and to redeem the guilt of the nations. With great anticipation we expect His Coming in Glory and the bodily resurrection of the righteous dead. Maranatha!
