“We at ONE FOR ISRAEL strive to share the Gospel of Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) with Israeli Jews and Arabs in the Hebrew language. Our staff is comprised of both Jewish and Arab Israelis, with the shared belief that true peace in the Middle East can only come into existence under Yeshua (Jesus)”.
We seek to do this in two ways:
- Reaching Israelis with the Gospel message.
- Training up the next generation of leaders.
Israel College of the Bible
The Bible College was originally founded in 1990, as the need for theological training rapidly increased. The number of Jewish believers in Israel has roughly tripled each decade, and the need for new leaders with solid Biblical foundations has become essential.
We now have a growing staff team, qualified and equipped to train Israeli believers in theology, Biblical studies, counseling, in several different languages. We have the largest Messianic library in Israel. We are eager to meet the educational needs of Israeli believers who are being called to serve in God’s kingdom, and to help them prepare for ministry. (Visit our Israel College of the Bible page to find out more about it). We also enjoy welcoming others from overseas to join us, whether it is for a study-tour of the country, a season of learning, or simply a visit to see what God is doing among us.
The media evangelism work of One For Israel was established in 2009 with the encouragement of Campus Crusade for Christ. The ministry joined forces with Israel College of the Bible in 2013, and is endorsed by the National Evangelism Committee of Israel, under the association of the mainstream congregations/churches in Israel.
How do we evangelize? With the help of cutting-edge technology and a team of trained Israeli believers, the gospel message is being broadcast throughout Israel from our media center, using websites, radio station, videos and social networking (visit our evangelism page to find out more about it.) We make sure that the truth is easy to find when people search for Yeshua on the internet, and not only that, Israelis will find that the message is in their own language and in a manner sensitive to their culture. For those who express interest, our team is ready to help them work through their thoughts and questions, and connect them to local believers in their own area.
While it is a great blessing to be fluent in the language and culture of our fellow Israelis, enabling us to reach them, in order to reach and to serve in the most effective manner, we also find ourselves at a disadvantage. Even though the number of believers increases each year, there are still less than 1% of the country who follow Yeshua (Jesus) and it is not easy to find the resources that we need to provide these services for Israel. If you also believe that the best way to bless Israel is with Yeshua, we invite you to join us in the harvest field here, by partnering with us in prayer and finances.
