Beth Shalom Ministries was founded in 2004 by Pastor Ed Cramer. A Messianic Congregation with a vision to bring down the walls of separation so that all people will be one new man in Messiah Yeshua (Hebrew name for Jesus).
Pastor Ed Cramer and Sharon Cramer
Beth Shalom Ministries is a congregation where Jewish and non-Jewish people come together as one new man to worship God. 2 Corinthians 5:17-18 says: Therefore if anyone is in Messiah, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold new things have come. Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Messiah and gave us the ministry of reconciliation.
Pastor Ed Cramer
Ed is a Jewish believer in Messiah Jesus. He came to faith in Jesus 35 years ago by asking God the question: Who is the Messiah and has He been sent by You? By searching the Jewish Bible he came to a revelation of the truth that Jesus is the Messiah fulfilling Old Testament prophesies as revealed in the New Testament.
Today after 35 years as a believer the Lord has called Ed to start a Messianic congregation that began in 2004. By the anointing of the Holy Spirit Ed ties together both the Old and New Testaments to give a fresh word for today. His teaching uses Hebraic word studies to give a deeper understanding of the Bible.
The vision he has for today is to bring the entire body of Messiah together in unity, taking down those walls that divide. We who are disciples of Messiah Jesus are all grafted into the rich root of the Olive tree.
Sharon is a gentile believer in Messiah Jesus. She became a born-again believer in Jesus 36 years ago when she was asked the question; “If you were to die, do you know where you would spend eternity?”
Sharon grew up in a traditional Christian church, where she was taught about Jesus and the Bible, but never fully understood that we all are individually accountable to personally ask Jesus into our hearts. This good news, the message of salvation in Jesus changed her life forever.
Today Sharon is part of the ministry team and shares the vision of Beth Shalom Ministries to bring down the walls of separation. God has placed it on her heart to clearly share the gospel in a way that all people, from all backgrounds, will understand and have the opportunity to receive God’s free gift of salvation through Messiah Jesus.
