AYM believes that all believers in Yeshua the Messiah are equal in the Kingdom of G‑d, both Jews and non‑Jews. In many Messianic organizations non‑Jews are not considered to be on the same level as their Jewish believers. In some of these organizations non‑Jews are not allowed to vote in the assembly thus not allowing their voices to be counted in the decisions of the organization. This is not a correct reading of the New Testament and such organizations should be avoided by all.

AYM believes that G‑d is one as stated in the Shema, "Hear O Israel, the L‑rd our G‑d, the L-rd is one." There is but one G‑d and He is our Father.

AYM believes that Yeshua is the only Messiah of Israel. He is the Word made flesh as found in John 1:14. The Word emptied itself and was made in the likeness of man. (Philippians 2:7) Whereas Adam was the only created Son of G‑d, Yeshua is the only begotten Son of G‑d and is the second Adam. Where the first Adam failed, the second Adam succeeded.

AYM believes that redemption comes by faith in the Messiah and by no other means. No works may gain one any righteousness before G‑d. Works are for the purpose of performing righteous acts and confirming ones redemption. Works (following Torah) follow true redemption.

AYM believes that sin separates us from G‑d and only faith in the Messiah can remedy that situation.

AYM believes that sin is defined by the Torah (Law) and without Torah one is lost in defining what G‑d desires and expects.

AYM believes that the Holy Spirit woos all mankind on an individual basis to return to G‑d and enter into His rest. It is up to every individual to accept the Grace that G‑d offers.

AYM believes that the Wisdom and Understanding of G‑d are given to all that ask.

AYM believes that all believers are commanded to keep and observe the Sabbath and Festivals. There is no difference between Jew and non‑Jew when it comes to the keeping and observing of the Sabbath and Festivals.

AYM believes that the Sabbath is on the seventh day, which biblically starts on sundown Friday night and concludes on sundown Saturday night. The Sabbath belongs to G‑d and He has given it to His people. To G‑d there is no other Sabbath.

AYM believes that the congregation is a Jewish sect and should remain within the confines of Judaism.

AYM rejects all non-Jewish holidays that stem from paganism such as: Christmas, Easter and Valentines Day. Holidays such as Memorial Day, 4th of July and other non religious holidays are acceptable and may be practiced without any fear of violating G‑d's commandments.

AYM believes that the Torah (Law) is everlasting and should be obeyed by all believers. Every believers should keep and observe every commandment that applies to them or striving to do so. To keep the commandments that apply to oneself makes one Torah observant.

AYM believes in the resurrection of the dead, the righteous to everlasting life and the wicked to everlasting torment. All mankind will give an account of their actions and will be judged according to those actions. This judgment is not concerning ones redemption but ones reward or punishment.

AYM believes that the scriptures, as we have them, both the Tanakh and the B'rit Chadashah (Old and New Testaments) are the inspired and infallible word of G‑d, without error or corruption in their original languages. If a passage seems to contradict another passage it is our understanding of the verses in question that are lacking in knowledge and not the scripture.

AYM believes that the scriptures were written in the Hebrew language, including the B'rit Chadashah and to understand them one must study them in their Hebrew context.
