About Us


Beit HaMashiach

Celebrate Messiah has planted two messianic congregations in Melbourne; an English speaking congregation called “Beit HaMashiach” and a Russian speaking congregation called “Dom Missiee.” We meet together for Shabbat Services each week.

Beit HaMashiach is Hebrew for “House of the Messiah”. We are a unique congregation made up of Jewish and Gentile people who are believers in Yeshua as the promised Messiah of Israel. Beit HaMashiach is part of a worldwide Messianic Jewish movement of hundreds of congregations.

As a messianic congregation, we are committed to celebrating our faith in Yeshua in a way that reflects our scriptural Jewish heritage. Being a congregation of Jews and Gentiles, we testify to the peace that God has brought into our lives through Yeshua.

In the New Covenant Scriptures, in the book of Yochanon (John), a Jewish man exclaimed, “We have found Him of whom Moses and the prophets have written, Yeshua of Nazareth!” This is our testimony as well.

If you don’t know Yeshua as your Messiah, we encourage you to search out the Scriptures for yourself. God promised in the book of Jeremiah, “You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.”
