Here is Messianic Keepers At Home's Statement of Faith:

"This is an effort to establish a more thorough Statement of Faith: a.The Creator of all things has revealed Himself to His creation through His personal Name YHWH (or YHVH) and His title Elohim (God). He has revealed that in His divine nature He is an inseparable union; YHWH is One (Echad) and there is only one YHWH. ("Hear, O Israel: YHWH the Lord is our Elohim (God). He is One YHWH. He alone is YHWH." Deuteronomy 6:4)

And yet the one YHWH has manifest Himself to mankind in three divine forms: Abba [the Father], Yeshua [literally “Salvation,” the Son] and Ruach HaKodesh [the 'set-apart' (or 'H-ly') Spirit, literally “Breath”]. Yet all three manifestations of YHWH are One (echad) and have but one Name. (“ The Name [singular] of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 28:19)

The Scriptures, consisting of both the “Old Covenant” [the Tenakh: the Torah, the Prophets, and the Writings] and the “Renewed Covenant” [Brit Chadashah] make up a single unit, which is the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of YHWH. (“All Scripture is given by the Ruach [Breath or Spirit] of Elohim [God], and is to be used for doctrine, for reproof, for correction and for instruction in righteousness.” 2 Timothy 3:16)

Yeshua is the Messiah of Israel, the Savior of the world. He is YHWH who came in the flesh (1 Tim. 3:16). He was born of a virgin (Luke 1:34) and lived a sinless and Torah-observant life. He died an atoning death as the full and complete payment of our sin debt to God (1 John 4:10), was resurrected from the dead (1 Cor. 15:4), ascended to the right hand of Abba, the Father (Mark 16:19), and now is glorified with all power in Heaven and in Earth (John 1:12-14). He will return physically as King of kings and Lord of lords to rule and reign over the earth from the throne of His father David [in Jerusalem]. (Zech. 14; Acts 1:9-11, Rev. 19:11-16)

All have sinned (transgressed the holy Torah [revealed Law] of God) and stand condemned before Him, and need the salvation provided by the Chesed (kindness, or 'grace') of YHWH through the atoning work of Yeshua as our final and ultimate Passover Lamb. (Ps. 14:1-3; Rom. 3:23)

All who repent and believe that Yeshua is the promised Messiah, YHWH come in the flesh, Who died as our Passover Lamb and rose again, are forgiven their sins and come into a renewed covenant with YHWH through Yeshua, and therefore become inheritors of all the unconditional promises that YHWH made with Abraham and Israel. (Romans 10:9-11, 1 Corinthians 5:7) [This requires not simple intellectual acquiescence to the historical facts, but a total and child-like faith and trust that Yeshua was exactly Who He claimed to be and that He will do exactly what He has promised to do. This kind of faith, coupled with true repentance (teshuva - a complete turning around) will produce the evidence of an appropriate lifestyle of Mitzvot (righteous works). See James 2:14-26.]

Ruach HaKodesh [the Holy Spirit] permanently dwells within all true believers to lead, guide, teach, comfort, and empower us to live a righteous life and to minister to the Kahal [the Ekklesia, or “Called-Out Ones”] as a royal priesthood of believers. (John 14:26; 1 Tim. 1:7; 1 Cor. 14:26; Acts 2:4; 1 Cor. 12: 1-13, Rom. 12:3-21; Eph. 1:13; 1 Pet. 2:5)

The promise of a faithful trust in Yeshua is resurrection from the dead, eternal life, a place in the world to come (olam haba) and ruling with Yeshua forever in the place where His Kingdom will rule. Yeshua will soon rule in Jerusalem, and finally in New Jerusalem in the New Creation forever. (John 5:28-29; Rev. 19-22, especially 20:11-15)

The penalty awaiting those who reject Yeshua and Torah is eternal separation from YHWH into outer darkness and eternal punishment. (Matt. 25:31-46, Rev. 20)

The final Divine Plan for Israel is to bring the remnant of Judah, who are the faithful Jewish people, and the remnant of those who were formally Gentiles, but who have been recovered from the world by faith, back together and united into one holy nation of Israel under one Shepherd, namely Yeshua, the Messiah. This is a necessary part of the restoration of all things spoken by the prophets. (Ezek. 37, Hosea 1-2, Rom. 9:26, Acts 3:21) k. The Shabbat [Sabbath], the seventh day of the week, is the created holy day of YHWH (not just of Israel), which He gave to mankind and covenanted with His people as a sign forever. (Exod. 31:12-16, Gen. 2:2-3, Isa. 58:13-14, Matt. 12:8) Nowhere in the “New Testament” is either the Fourth Commandment (Exod. 20:8-11) either repealed or changed. They are only amplified and explained.

The entire Torah of YHWH, both “Old” and “Renewed” Covenants, is the instruction of a loving and gracious Father to His children. It is the perfect and unchanging law that gives us liberty (Ps. 119:44-45; James 2:24-26). The commandments of YHWH will not disappear until heaven and earth disappear (Matt 5:17-20). YHWH’s people delight in His instruction (Ps. 1:2). The Torah was not given for salvation. It is the loving instruction of how a redeemed people should live. Yeshua kept His Fathers commandments and lived in His love. We are instructed to walk as He walked (1 Jn. 2:3-6). We are to obey YHWH’s commandments and to hold to the testimony of Yeshua (Rev. 12:17). m. Jewish followers of Yeshua are called to maintain their Jewish Biblical heritage and remain a part of their people Israel and the universal body of believers. This is part of their identity and a witness to the faithfulness of God.

Gentile Believers in Messiah are grafted into the Jewish olive tree (Romans 11) and are thus partakers in the unconditional covenants that YHWH made to Israel. They are encouraged to understand and appreciate their roots in Judaism. Though they are under no obligation to live "as Jews", they are invited to do so if they felt led by Ruach HaKodesh to do so, and are encouraged to support the interests of world Jewry as adopted members of the family of Jacob (Israel). adapted from the group 'Messianic Believers' on Facebook. I hope this is helpful to establish this Network's 'Statement of Faith', but it is not 'set in stone'. If you are uncomfortable with any of the above, please contact the Network owner. "

So, if these ladies sound like women you'd like to rub elbows with in the digital sense, then go have fun!
