Jews for Jesus writing and illustrating their own metirials, such as hand-lettered pamphlets with plenty of humor in an informal way. Jews for Jesus call these gospel tracts "broadsides" and their staff hand-delivers almost 10,000,000 of these "invitations to interact with the gospel" every year.

There is an Yiddish phrase: "Man drives but God holds the reins." Jews for Jesus take that a step further, recognizing that they are dependent on God and His Word for all that they do. Apart from Jesus and the power of His Holy Spirit, Jews for Jesus says "we can do nothing".
Jews for Jesus think it is important not only for individuals but also for organizations to be mindful of the values that help define Jews for Jesus. Recently, Jews for Jesus staff articulated a "Core Values" statement to help us rally around our fundamental commitments. Core values don't represent an exhaustive list of all of Jews for Jesus' commitments, nor are they meant to serve as their doctrinal statement. Jews for Jesus' Core values can help define what makes Jews for Jesus different. Their Boards of Directors all over the world unanimously adopted the "Core Values" statement.
Jews for Jesus is a Messianic-Jewish evangelical organization that focuses on the bringing Jesus to the Jews.

The identification of Jews for Jesus as a Jewish organization is overwhelmingly rejected by Traditional Jewish religious and most of the secular Jews as well due to their core values. Jews for Jesus' evangelical activities have garnered mixed reactions from other Christians.
