Why Israel?

Why Israel: What Every Believer Should Discover

FIRM connects Christians around the world to Israel in a gospel-centered way, while strengthening and uniting local believers in the Land.

Although the gospel went around the world from Jerusalem, today less than 1% of Israel’s 9-million people are believers in Jesus.

We’re on a mission to empower local ministries to transform lives in Israel. We serve a God who is alive and people—Jewish and Arab alike—are coming to know Jesus as their Messiah in Israel today.

“I knew Israel would be good, but I didn’t know it would change my life. I didn’t know it would change the way I approach the scriptures and how I teach about who God is – the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”
– Chad Veach, Zoe Church

The Importance of Israel for Christians

Why is Israel so important to the rest of the world?

For believers, Israel’s story is our story. Read “The Kingdom of God and Israel’s Biblical History” here.



Why Israel and the Nations Today

God asks you as nations of the world to provoke Israel to jealousy. Why? Because you serve under the kingship of God. You’ve inherited the new covenant that was promised to Israel. 

You’ve been grafted in. Abraham is your forefather. You were brought into all the promises. You were adopted into the family. To see you loving the one, true God makes Israel jealous.

Our Calling in “Why Israel”

God longs for the day when every tribe, every people, every tongue, every language serves under the kingship of Jesus. “Why Israel?” can be a first step in discovering that calling.
