1. A Nazarene is a Jew, either natural or converted, who believes in, supports, and lives his or her life according to the Statement of Faith duly established by this Beit Din.

2. In no way shall the opportunities in Torah or the Nazarene community for a ger toshav be restricted with the exception of the position of member in the Nazarene Beit Din.  A person may remain a gentile and will not be considered "second class" or less important within the community.  We understand that YHVH would view a gentile who has accepted Yahshua as Messiah and walks submitted to the Torah as justified and privileged.  These gerim toshavim are welcome in our community, but are not considered Jews or Nazarenes.

3 A member of the Nazarene Beit Din must be a Jew, either natural or converted according to standards accepted by this Beit Din.
