Mission and Values
We relentlessly pursue God’s plan for the salvation of the Jewish people.
Our mission statement flows out of the same passion that compelled the prophet Isaiah:
For Zion’s sake I will not hold My peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until her righteousness goes forth as brightness, and her salvation as a lamp that burns
The apostle Paul echoed that deeply held sentiment in Romans 10:1: “Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved.”
God’s plan will result in the salvation of Jewish people and all that that encompasses: forgiveness of sin, peace with God, the hope of being in His presence for all eternity—as well as the promise of abundant life here and now. God is not willing that any should perish. God is committed to seeing the very best for His people, for their flourishing in the fullest sense of the word. That is only possible through a relationship with Him through faith in Yeshua.
We are relentless in our pursuit of God’s plan because God has relentlessly pursued us with His love in Messiah. He does not give up on us and, by His grace, we will not give up on those He has called us to reach.
At Jews for Jesus, passion for the lost, teamwork, and dedication define our ministry, our administration, and our leadership—these core values are our organization’s DNA.
Passion for the Lost
Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved.
God’s love for our Jewish people has lasted longer, and is divinely deeper, than we can fathom. His uncompromising love for us, demonstrated through the gospel, pushes us to aspire to that kind of love and fuels the flames of our passion for the salvation of the lost.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
Sacrifice is the very essence of what Messiah Yeshua accomplished on our behalf. As believers, we are both beneficiaries and reflections of His sacrifice. And it is in His sacrificial example that we find our dedication. This dedication arises not from our own strength but from the power of the Holy Spirit and the knowledge that no effort was spared, no moment of pain was avoided when Yeshua laid down His life for our salvation. Dedication to God carries over into devotion to the work God has called us to do and the lives He has called us to live.
Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant.
The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.
We are inspired by the example Messiah Yeshua set when He sent out the first ministers of the gospel in teams and how He continually pointed them towards both the Father and each other. It is the other-centered nature of teamwork that reflects the gospel. We embrace the diversity of the team God has brought together in Jews for Jesus, believing that each of us can be more and do more and reach more Jewish people for Yeshua as part of a passionately dedicated team than we could alone.
