FROM THE WILDERNESS TO THE PROMISED LAND
Shalom Aleichem! Peace be unto you! The Spirit of Shalom and Grace is upon Aviv Judea Messianic Congregation. Our mission is to bring the Good News of His kingdom to the Jew first, and also to the Nations. It is a mission of Ahava (love) that serves as a bridge between the Jewish people and the Gentiles (Nations).
Being established in 1978, in Norwalk, California, we became one of the very first Messianic congregations in the world, since the first century. This congregation is a unique body of believers consisting of Jews and of people from diverse ethnicities and various religious backgrounds. As a congregation, we have returned to the original Jewish context in which Yeshua (Jesus) lived two thousand years ago.
Our congregation wandered through the wilderness from place to place, for almost forty years, until 2014, when we experienced the first part of the miracle of our "land". G-d graciously enabled us to obtain a building of His choosing, very close to Downtown Fullerton, and right on a busy street. This building demonstrates to the Jewish community that we are here to stay.
We stand in faith, that G-d will lead others to join us for the remaining part of the miracle. We know that through His Holy Spirit, He will draw people to help us achieve this goal. Once the loan is paid off, we will be free to go forth with ALL the things that have been purposed by G-d from the beginning, such as Friday evening Shabbat Dinners open to the community and midweek activities and classes open to the public. Our main focus is to reach the Lost Sheep of Israel with the Good News.
It is with pleasure we invite you to partner with us, prayerfully and financially, to become part of this mission, to develop a center of community, a bridge between the Church and the Jews, a place of dialogue.
