Accelerating Our Mission

When MJBI was founded in 1996, our primary purpose was to help “build” the global Messianic Jewish community. By working alongside the few established Messianic ministries who were laboring outside America at the time, we trained leaders who would in turn plant new Messianic congregations and ministries.

Over time, however, we realized that we needed refine our mission because the average Christian believes the Church has replaced Israel in God’s plan. Inspired by the Apostle Paul’s statement in Romans 11:11, that “salvation has come to the Gentiles in order to provoke Israel to jealousy,” MJBI began engaging and equipping Church leaders both to reach the Jewish people and to train the broader Church itself.

Through God’s leading, we continue to focus more of our energies on equipping the Church to provoke the Jewish people to a jealous love for Yeshua. Rabbi Jonathan Bernis, (our Chairman) refers to this as “serving” the Messianic Jewish community. Our historic seminary training program in Poland is a product of this focus, as is the amazing influence we have had in the Japanese, French, and Swiss Church recently.

With over 2 billion Christians on earth, can you imagine what will happen when the Church is trained and equipped to serve the Messianic Jewish community, to love all Jewish people unto faith in their Messiah? We can: “And in this way, all Israel will be saved” (Rom. 11:26)!

 

An incorrect theology on Israel can quickly lead to ugly anti-Semitism. Recent attacks on the Jewish people should alarm us, but also motivate us to teach and advocate proper, biblical love for all Israel.

 

As we serve the Messianic community in a greater measure, we know that more Jewish people will see Yeshua as Messiah. And all of this is only made possible through your support. Will you give today?
