Israeli Arabs
and Jews.
United in
the Gospel.

“As an Israeli Messianic Jew, I wake up in the morning with a passion to bring the Good News of Jesus to my Arab brothers…I know without a doubt that the Lord’s heart is for us to be united in Jesus as the one new man.”

ONE FOR ISRAEL is reaching ALL of Israel

20%

of Israel’s nine million citizens are Arabs,
most of whom are Muslim, and 20% within
that number are nominally Christian.

Only a fraction of that number
are born-again believers. 

In the Middle East and North Africa,

less than 4%*

of the Arabic speaking population is Christian. Just as in Israel, fewer still are born-again.

Former Muslim singer the moment he was born again:

“I have cried for myself and for the years of my life that I lost while I was far from Christ. My tears are pouring down. Besides, I feel a huge relief and calmness as if I am a baby being born again into this world. God bless you and bless your deeds.You are a friend and a brother who has a huge place in my heart. I long to be baptized so my relief will be complete.”

As a Muslim, I know nothing about Jesus. The videos I’ve watched opened my eyes and mind to many things. I was very moved by the words.

I am wandering the streets of Gaza and don’t know what to do. I can’t sleep… After 30 years of being deceived, I’m ready to forsake everything: my home, wife, children, work, father, brothers, and everyone in order to reach the true way.

I cry for myself and for the years I lost while I was far from Christ. I feel a huge relief and calmness as if I am a baby being born again into this world. I long to be baptized!

Arabs & Jews under one roof, serving together for one Gospel

Across the Middle East, the new “town square” is online. It is here on the digital frontier that our Arab and Jewish team shares Jesus in places we otherwise would never be able to go.

Each day from our studio in the heart of Israel, we produce cutting-edge content online to bless the Arabic-speaking world with Jesus.

Through our evangelistic website, Arabic social media pages, and ever-expanding list of evangelistic videos, we are tearing down generations of lies and replacing them with the truth of who Jesus is.

Did You Know…

One of the greatest areas of response to our Arabic evangelism videos is the Gaza Strip. Trapped in Gaza, with nowhere to hear the gospel but through media, people have come to faith, with some even being secretly baptized in the Mediterranean Sea.

Hadil, Arab evangelism team:

“When Arabs watch our videos, they are astonished to hear the Word of God preached at the Holy sites in Israel by Arabic-speaking believers. Many are open and hungry to hear about Jesus.”

Outreach is only the beginning...

Discipleship of new seekers is one of our most crucial steps.

We know that for most Arabs, there are many “no’s” before they are ready to say “yes” to Jesus. We understand these objections, and we address them one by one, speaking the truth about the Bible, the prophets, and the Messiah, appealing simultaneously to both Muslims and nominal Christians (such as Catholics and Orthodox Christians who may never have picked up a Bible). Slowly or quickly, we are seeing the “no’s” turn into a resounding “YES!”

“God is our Father, for me it was just like ‘ah-ha’ experience…my eyes were open. Finally, I can have a Father, a loving Father, a Heavenly Father. I became a follower of Jesus Christ.”

A Muslim actor from Egypt who shared one of our videos:

“An explanation to the truth of the Christian belief that Christ is the Son of God, and that He has come to let all mankind out of slavery to freedom. Words that you’ll hear for the first time. Get to know Christianity and the truth about eternity. I think that most Christians don’t know about it enough as in this adequate explanation.”

A comment from an agnostic guy:

“Thank you… I’m an agnostic guy but I have benefited from you and acquired education regarding the Bible.”

A Muslim who shared one of our videos:

“A beautiful video about the truth of Sayyedna Issa (the Islamic name for Jesus), peace be upon him. I hope that everyone watch it.”

Discipleship

Many former Muslims in closed countries desire fellowship in a local church, but face persecution and even death threats after coming to faith. They are left with nowhere to go. Discipleship over the internet becomes their lifeline. Our team actively engages these new believers, teaching them the Word of God online and helping them follow Jesus.

From terrorist to Christ-follower!

One of our students at ONE FOR ISRAEL’s Bible College used to be part of Al-Qaeda. His journey to faith was extraordinary, and he now receives regular discipleship and studies remotely with us.

Muslim Convert Assistance

“I knew the decision I was making to leave Islam was a big decision. By Sharia Law, Islamic Law, it is death penalty. But I was desperate to know a living God. In that day I gave my life to becoming a follower of Jesus…”

– Muslim background Arab believer from Kuwait

For many, to convert from Islam to follow Jesus bears the death penalty. Some are forced to leave their jobs and their homes for safety. When these situations occur, we do our best to provide critical assistance to our new brothers and sisters to help them stand strong and to get them out of danger if at all possible.

Arab & Jewish Ministry Teams

Beyond our work in online evangelism and discipleship, teams from our Bible college travel to sensitive locations around the world — Arabs and Jews sharing Jesus side by side. United in Him, we not only talk of the Gospel of peace, we are living proof that Jesus is the key to peace in the Middle East.

How Can I Help?

We believe the best way to bless the Middle East is with Jesus, but we can’t do it alone. We invite you to pray, share and give to our Arabic ministry.

pray

PRAY for our Arabic evangelism and discipleship team as they produce new content and interact with seekers online and in person. Pray for our team to be strong and steadfast, unashamed and unafraid in the midst of regular death threats. Pray for those seeking and those coming to faith as they begin to follow Jesus, often in very difficult and even dangerous circumstances.

shout-out

SHARE with your friends, family, small group, church or congregation about the work of our Arabic ministry and how Arabs and Jews are teaming together to reach the Arab world.

“For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity.”
