Temple New Jerusalem (TNJ) is a messianic synagogue in Tampa Bay/St. Petersburg, FL. We are a community where both Jew and Gentile can worship together in faith, focused on Yeshua (Jesus) as the Messiah of Israel, and Savior of the world. Located on East Lake Rd. in Tarpon Springs, people are coming to our messianic congregation from Clearwater, Tampa, St. Petersburg, New Port Richey, Trinity, Palm Harbor, Dunedin and throughout greater Tampa Bay. Many are drawn to the unique messianic style of worship and praise. TNJ worships in Davidic dance, Hebraic prayers, celebratory Torah services, and the awesome praise music that is characteristic of the worldwide messianic Jewish movement. We make a "joyful noise" to the Lord, knowing that He dwells in the praises of His people.
TNJ meets weekly for Shabbat services every Friday at 8 pm. We host special services for high holidays Passover Seder, Hanukkah and Purim. We also honor the national holidays of the State of Israel. These exciting festivals help us to remember and understand all that Yeshua has done for us – and will do for us in the near future.
At TNJ, we support the state of Israel and the local Jewish community. We also stand among the many Jewish and Gentile people worldwide who are praying for the peace of Jerusalem, and anticipating the return of the Messiah. We are experiencing prophecy unfolding as the Jews have returned to Israel and are rebuilding the ancient homeland in preparation for Messiah Yeshua to return and rule! Our hearts are with the Land of Israel and look toward Yeshua's return as these prophecies are fulfilled.
As the Rabbi, I pray continually that the Kingdom of God is demonstrated in our congregation which means the Spirit of God is among us with power. I seek fresh revelation from the Lord daily to impart the gospel truths, heal the sick and preach the word of God from the old and new testament. The teachings are designed for the congregation to disciple, grow and change by the power of the Holy Spirit. If you've never been to TNJ, we invite you to attend and see for yourself, what may be a fresh, life-changing experience for you. I hope to personally meet you and be allowed the opportunity to share with you.
