About Us

Beit Minorah (House of Light) is an independent Messianic-leaning congregation made up of a diverse group of people from all over the Central Kentucky area.  Beit Minorah is unique in that it is not centered as much on agreement of doctrine (though sound doctrine is important), but rather, on being able to work together, as God wills, to reach the common goals we do have despite any disagreement.  If you would like more information about our congregation, we encourage you to contact us at: beitminorah@gmail.com  We would be more than happy to sit together and get to know you.
