Our calling at the House of David is to build the Kingdom of God by bringing the church, the bride of Yeshua into a deeper relationship with her bridegroom through the intimacy of worship and prayer, and through relational Hebraic teachings of the word of God.

The House of David is a One New Man Ministry (Ephesians 2:14-16). Our passion is to seek the presence of God and the fullness of His intimate love. It is a ministry that moves in the gifts and power of the Holy Spirit and the gift of prophecy. It is a ministry that invites those who desire nothing from this world but to be in the presence of YHVH and to gaze on His beauty all the days of their life. It is a ministry for development of deep eternal friendships. It is a ministry for healing and reconciliation between cultures and nations. It is a ministry that obeys the new commandment, that we love each other as Yeshua has loved us so that the world will know that we are His disciples. Moreover, it is a ministry for those who are passionate about sharing the love of Yeshua with the world. We desire to release the commanded blessing of unity in Psalm 133, disciple and commission a generation of spiritual leaders that will be sent into the world for the harvest to prepare the church for the imminent return of her bridegroom, and ushering in the Kingdom of God.

Many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and they shall become My people. And I will dwell in your midst. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent Me to you.
— Zechariah 2:11
 

Pastor Eric Michael & Kim Teitelman

Pastor Eric Michael Teitelman is a Christian Jew and follower of Yeshua. He is ordained as a bi-vocational pastor with the Southern Baptist Convention and is also a worship leader and photographer. He currently oversees the House of David Ministries—a Hebraic teaching, worship, and creative arts ministry, focused on building the Kingdom of God by bringing Jew and Gentile Christians together as one new man in Christ Yeshua (Ephesians 2:14-16). He and his wife Kim live in Haymarket, Virginia. Kim follows conservative Judaism.

Pastor Eric was born in Chicago to Ashkenazi parents and raised in Bat Yam, Israel for much of his childhood. He holds both U.S. and Israeli citizenship. His father is a descendant of Levi from the house of Aaron, and, his mother is a descendant of Judah from the lineage of King David and the prophet Samuel. In Israel he attended Yeshiva Aderet, an orthodox school for rabbinical study. He later moved to the United States to study Civil Engineering.

In 2002 after reading the New Testament, Eric received Yeshua as His Lord and Savior, and shortly after was baptized in the power of the Holy Spirit. With a firm knowledge of Old and New Testament scripture and a deep understanding of Jewish culture and rabbinic writings, he brings a unique perspective to his teachings. He plays acoustic guitar and leads prophetic worship, singing contemporary Christian songs and Hebrew Psalms.

House of David Ministries was established in 2008 as a collegiate ministry. Presently, it serves as a teaching resource to the body of Christ, helping Christians gain an understanding of their biblical foundation and spiritual heritage, embracing the church’s calling for the nation of Israel and understanding God’s Kingdom and covenant promises for the church and Israel.

Pastor Eric is involved with other ministries in the Washington D.C. Metro:

 
The LORD bless you from Zion, He Who made heaven and earth.
— Psalm 134:3

What We Offer

Pastor Eric is available by invitation to teach or lead worship at your ministry, congregation, or home fellowship. He also provides photography and videography at select ministry gatherings. His teachings are Christ-centered with an emphasis on reading scriptures from a Hebraic perspective. Hebraic lessons focus on biblical Judaism and the practices of the first-century church. It is intended to bring an understanding of the prophetic and spiritual applications of the written word, such as the feasts of the Lord, the Sabbath, the Hebrew language, and the spiritual blessings that are released through prophetic impartation, such as anointing with Olive oil, covering ourselves with a tallit (Jewish prayer shawl), or blowing a shofar (Ram’s horn). We honor our Messiah for the Jewish man that He is, and we acknowledge those things that He has sanctified and made holy.

The teachings are preferably small, allowing for interaction and dialogue. Attendees may request anointing with oil under a tallit, Aaronic priestly blessings, and personal prayers, including prayers for healing. The prophetic worship is intimate with a focus on Hebrew Psalms combined with prayer and intercession for Israel and the nations. People are invited to sing and pray over their countries in their native languages. Typical subjects include: The Hebraic foundation of the church, understanding the one new man, the Old versus the New Covenant, discovering Yeshua in the feasts of the Lord, Passover demonstrations, restoration of the church, the Kingdom of God, the return of Yeshua and the day of the Lord, and other end-time prophetic teachings related to Israel and the church.

We do not charge any set fees for the ministry work that we do, but do ask for free-will offerings to cover our travel and other ministry expenses. We also encourage people to support the ministry on a regular monthly basis so that we cover operating and travel expenses. This will enable us to minister to the body of Christ, spreading the message of the one new man and expanding the Kingdom of God.


Statement of Faith

  1. We believe that the entire Bible is the eternal and infallible Word of God, written by men who were moved by the Holy Spirit, and which reveals God's truth about Himself and His relationship with His creation (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:21).

  2. We believe that God is Love and that He is good, and that there is no darkness in Him, but only truth and light (Mark 10:18, John 1:14, 1 John 1:5, 1 John 4:8, 1 John 4:16).

  3. We believe in One GOD YHVH, co-eternal without beginning or end, and co-equal and manifest as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:26, Matthew 28:19).

  4. We believe that the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, were created in the image of God, rebelled and fell away from God's presence into a life of sin and that all of humanity has inherited their sinful nature (Genesis 2:17, Genesis 3:23-24, Genesis 6:5, Romans 3:23).

  5. We believe that Jesus Yeshua is the Son of God, born of a virgin by the power of the Holy Spirit and that He is the Word of God manifest to humanity in the flesh (Isaiah 7:14, Isaiah 9:6, John 1:4).

  6. We believe that Yeshua is the Savior (Messiah) of the world and the King of Israel and that He died on the cross to offer His sinless body and shed His sinless blood as a sacrificial offering to atone and pay for our sins (Isaiah 53:4-12, Matthew 2:2, John 3:16, 2 Corinthians 5:21).

  7. We believe that in shedding His blood that He perfectly fulfilled the law of the old covenant made with Israel, has now created a new marriage covenant with the House of Israel and the House of Judah. Moreover, we believe that God extended this same everlasting covenant to the gentiles thereby making both into One New Man in Christ Yeshua (Isaiah 59:21, Jeremiah 31:31, Isaiah 55:3, Romans 9:24, Ephesians 2:15).

  8. We believe that we did not choose God first, but that He first picked us, and that He gave us the gift of faith so that we might believe in Him and His Son's atoning work on the cross (Ephesians 1:4, 1 John 4:19).

  9. We believe that our gift of resurrection and eternal life is accepted by faith in Yeshua only, and not by any works of the old covenant laws, or the good works of man (Romans 3:23-28).

  10. We believe that Yeshua is the only way, the only truth, and the single life of man and that all those who call upon the name of the Lord are given the gift of resurrection and eternal life, and are called Children of GOD YHVH (John 1:12, John 3:15, John 14:6, Romans 10:9).

  11. We believe that Yeshua descended into the place of the dead, was resurrected on the third day to eternal life to demonstrate His power over sin and death, and has ascended to heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father (Mat 12:40, Mat 26:64, Luke 4:18, Acts 13:33-34, Hebrews 7:25).

  12. We believe that Yeshua gave us a new commandment in the offering of the new covenant, and this new commandment being that we would love each other as He has loved us so that the world would know that we are His disciples (John 13:34-35).

  13. We believe in the baptism and indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 3:11, John 14:17).

  14. We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit to make us into a new, born again creation in Christ Yeshua, and that His perfect works in us will be completed (John 3:3, 2 Corinthians 5:17, 1 John 3:2).

  15. We believe in the Fruit of the Spirit and the demonstration of our faith through the work of God's Spirit within us so that the world would see our good works and glorify our God in heaven (Matthew 5:16, Galatians 5:22, Hebrews 6:11).

  16. We believe in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and God's power to demonstrate His love through apostolic prayer, worship, prophesy, evangelism, pastoring, teaching, healings, miracles, signs, and wonders (Joel 2:28, 1 Corinthians 12:4-11, Hebrews 2:4, 2 Peter 1:21).

  17. We believe in the great commission given by Yeshua to go into the nations and make disciples of all people (Matthew 28:19).

  18. We believe in the imminent return of Yeshua, in the premillennial resurrection and rapture of the Church, and in the joining of the old and new covenant saints (Matthew 24:40-41, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).

  19. We believe in a seven-year time of tribulation and judgment for the earth and the nation of Israel (Daniel 9:25-27).

  20. We believe in the coming wrathful Day of the Lord and the final judgment of the earth (Isaiah 2:12, 2 Peter 3:7).

  21. We believe in the end-times harvest and the return of all descendants of Jacob to the land of Israel as promised to Abraham, in the rejoining of the House of Israel and the House of Judah into one nation, and in the complete physical and spiritual restoration of the kingdom of Israel (Isaiah 11:12, Isaiah 49:6, Jeremiah 30:18, Ezekiel 37:19, Ezekiel 39:25, Matthew 13:39).

  22. We believe in the establishment of God's kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven and the millennial rule of Yeshua over Israel and the nations of the earth (Revelation 20:6).

  23. We believe that God will fulfill His promises and blessings to Israel to make her a blessing to all peoples of the earth (Jeremiah 10:16, Isaiah 4:2, Isaiah 27:6, Isaiah 41:8, Isaiah 44:1, Isaiah 45:4).

  24. We believe that the Children of God will rule and reign with Christ Yeshua as kings and priests over the nations of the earth (Revelation 20:6).

  25. We believe in the second resurrection and the white throne of judgment at the end of the millennial reign (Revelation 20:6, Revelation 20:11).

  26. We believe in a new heaven and new earth, for the old will pass away, and for the New Jerusalem to come down from heaven for all eternity (Revelation 21:1-2).
