Believing Ministries in Israel

There are tons of incredible Christian and Messianic ministries in Israel that are doing God’s work. From congregations to youth ministries to serving widows and orphans, there’s a whole range of Kingdom work. Also, while the majority of organizations are run by Jewish believers in Jesus, there are active ministry heads from within the Arab believing world, too, and beyond. Many backgrounds and ethnicities are represented within the 9-million person country of Israel. It is a true picture of the gospel at work.

As FIRM, we want to create opportunities for you to engage with trusted ministries in Israel. Many believers want to support ministries in Israel, but they don’t know where to start or who to trust. It can be hard to build connections in the Holy Land from a distance. That is why FIRM is here for you! Let us connect you to effective ministries in Israel transforming lives in Israel through the love of Jesus.

Dear reader:

In the midst of a year full of suffering all around the world, we find hope in the words of Yeshua: “In me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart, I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). 

Because He overcame, we are overcomers. As overcomers, local believers in Israel help their neighbors overcome poverty, depression, and so much more. 

FIRM exists to connect you with trusted gospel-centered work while empowering local ministries to transform lives in Israel. 

  • 100% of your gift goes directly to ministry projects 
  • You will hear stories of your impact 
  • Your gift supports 60+ local ministries 

Through your generous gift, you can help people in Israel overcome and be spiritually transformed. $40 can impact one person in Israel with the love of Jesus. 

Will you give to help transform lives today?

For the Kingdom

Every day, ministries in Israel are doing great work for the Kingdom of God. They would love to hear that believers like you, across the world, have their back. FIRM serves these organizations through resourcing, strengthening and connecting local ministries. FIRM serves as a bridge to the global Church. We know how necessary their work is, but it can be difficult to get the word out. If we are one body, we need to truly work together!

So, here are some very foundational steps you can take to bless the people of Israel today:

  1. Learn.
  2. Pray.
  3. Give.
  4. Share.
  5. Connect.

Read on to see how you can take each one of these steps more effectively!

Give

The shutdowns and ongoing restrictions in Israel have significantly crippled the country’s economy. Unsurprisingly, one of the first ones to suffer are the organizations that are dependent on donations and public support.

Even the smallest gift makes a huge difference today. You can either choose a specific ministry in Israel to support from the list linked above or you can support many organizations at once through The Tribe, our faithful, monthly giving community.

Share

Connect

While all the steps above can be accomplished individually, here is an idea that requires cooperation in the best way! If you are looking for a long-term relationship with a ministry in Israel, if you want to support them, pray for them, love them and strengthen what they do, we can facilitate that! We encourage churches and ministries from around the world to develop strategic partnerships with ministries in Israel.
