Exploring Beth-El Shalom Messianic Congregation

Hello and welcome to my web-site! Curious about the Messianic movement? Looking at Messianic congregations in Florida? Beth-El Shalom Messianic of New Port Richey and St. Petersburg, Florida invite Jews to come to their congregations for Jewish music, Torah and learning with their rabbi. However, in truth they are not Jewish organizations led by a real rabbi, but a missionary arm of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church movement, a branch of Christianity! I will demonstrate this using information from their web-site and other Christian sites. Reference links will be provided, so you can see the evidence for your eyes.

Christian Mother

Beth-El Shalom Messianic is an official branch of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church movement. If you look at the Beth-El Shalom Messianic web-site, you will find the two Beth-El Shalom Messianics addresses in New Port Richey and St. Petersburg: Click Here

However, you may be shocked that you can also find Beth-El Shalom Messianic in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church directory, a Christian movement. Here is the reference link: Click Here

You can even find them in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church Yearbook, here is the link to the proof: Click Here

Similarly, they are listed in PlusLine, a website of the North American Division of the Seventh-Day Adventist movement: Click Here

A real synagogue would never be part of a Christian movement!

Christian Listings

As Beth-El Shalom Messianic is part of a Christian movement, it is not suprising that you can find them on numerous Christian web-sites. The following are Christian sites which list Beth-El Shalom; a real Jewish congregation would never be found on any of these sites:
