The Heights Church
“When visiting a new church I know it can be overwhelming. Our goal is to make you our honored guest from the time you drive in to the parking lot to the time you leave. Sunday morning is all about enjoying God’s presence, enjoying fellowship with His people, and growing in the knowledge and truth of the Word of God. I hope to see you at one of our services really soon.”

Beith Asaph (House of Worship)
Beit Asaph is an Israeli congregation strongly connected to the national Messianic “mainstream” in many vital areas of ministry, including service to our youth and soldiers, biblical education and reconciliation initiatives.

Beit Asaph was established in the late 1970’s with the consolidation of two Bible study/ prayer groups led by David and Lisa Loden and Pat and Judy Hoaldridge. During the early 80’s the congregation began to express a clear local identity with consistent biblical teaching, celebration and interaction with the small number of Messianic communities throughout Israel.

The congregation consists of approximately 200 committed believers and seekers, is predominantly Jewish in identity and has a diverse makeup of Russian, English and Spanish speaking immigrants as well as “Tsaberim” (native born Israelis). Our primary worship language is Hebrew with translation provided into both Russian and English. A system of language-specific home groups provides support and ease for congregants to study and fellowship in smaller groups in their mother tongue. These groups are effective ‘evangelistic stations’ where seekers can comfortably integrate into Messianic life and belief before committing to the general Body.

Approximately 45% of the congregation is under 18 years of age. We provide a comprehensive spiritual education system for our children and youth. Although challenging, this presents many opportunities for people to become involved in different areas of work in the Shabbat School and youth ministry. Social outreach is a cornerstone of Beit Asaph. For many years we have served a number of severely disabled local believers by providing experienced volunteers and a specially equipped vehicle to assist them. A weekly distribution center based in our worship facility provides food, clothing and a hot meal to the poor and elderly of Netanya.
