Israel's Peace Ministries was born out of God's heart for His servants in the Land of Israel. These Messianic Pastors and congregations in Israel are facing tremendous persecution, yet not abandoning their call to preach the gospel to the Jew first and also to the Gentile.
Israel’s Peace Ministries (IPM) share in a God-given obligation to support, encourage and promote local Messianic congregations and pastors in the nation of Israel, especially those that are persecuted.
Demonstrating the Love of the Father
a. By praying for the Body of Christ in Israel
b. By financially supporting persecuted Messianic Pastors and Congregations in the Land
c. By encouraging, mentoring and developing leaders in Israel.
d. By aiding in the preaching and demonstration of the Gospel of Jesus the Messiah in Israel.
Israel’s Peace Ministries will connect with like-minded people who desire to support Messianic congregations in the nation of Israel.
We recognize that the proclamation of the Gospel in Israel is done most effectively through the local Messianic congregations in Israel; therefore, we will support that local effort.
We purpose to provide encouragement as well as funds and materials to this persecuted part of the Body of Christ in order to support local leaders in the effective preaching of the Gospel.
“For Zion’s sake I will not hold My peace,
And for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest,
Until her righteousness goes forth as brightness,
And her salvation as a lamp that burns.”
Yeshua is the Righteous Branch (Acts 13:23, John 7:40-43)
He died on the cross paying the penalty for sin for all mankind (Luke 23:46, John 1:29)
He rose on the third day, ascending to His Father in heaven where He sits interceding (Romans 1:3,4)
Yeshua is coming again (Revelation 22:12)
The church (the body of believers) is a Jewish/Gentile body according to (Ephesians 2:13)
To preach the gospel to the Jewish people is to be believed and expected. The initiative to have Jews discover their Messiah Yeshua is long over due.
WHO WE SUPPORT
Pastor Israel Pochtor
Ashdod, a city of 230,000 people located 40km south of Tel Aviv on the Mediterranean Sea. Until Pastor Israel and his family arrived, there were very few believers there. The congregation in Ashdod is very evangelistic, seeing many young people coming to know Yeshua as their Messiah. This congregation is believing for their city to be transformed and completed by the power and love of God.
Ashkelon, a coastal city of 140,000 people located about 8 miles away from Gaza. Pastor Israel established the church in 2019 as a humanitarian work where they serve people in need, spread the Gospel and advance His Kingdom in the city of Ashkelon.
Pastor Avi Mizarchi
Tel Aviv, has an inner city population of 400,000 with a greater area population of 3.3 million. The Tel Aviv region contains more Jews per capita than any place on earth. The church was founded by Avi and Chaya Mizrachi in the summer of 1996 with a few people meeting in a private home. As the Lord added to their numbers, the small group grew and is now a vibrant congregation in central Tel Aviv. They are committed to sharing the gospel with Israelis and taking the good news of the Messiah to all peoples.
Pastor Sergey Borcharnikov
Nazareth, a city of 70,000 people located in the north of Israel in the region of Galilee. Pastor Sergey and his family not only have a heart for their city but also the towns surrounding them. Their love for the people, their love for the land and their love for the Messiah are evident to all they interact with.
Afula, a small community south of Nazareth that was devoid of any Messianic presence. A group from the Nazareth congregation were led by God to go to this community and proclaim that Yeshua is the Jewish Messiah.
Beit Shean is one of the oldest cities in Israel. It is in the Galilee region of northern Israel where the Harod Valley and Jordan Valley meet. There have been many obstacles to overcome to bring the gospel to this community.
