CMJ

(The Church’s Ministry Among Jewish People)

divider
“For I am not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.” Romans 1:16
Christ Our King has a heart for God’s people, and we believe that He will keep His promise to restore Israel and redeem the Jews. CMJ is an outreach to help accomplish this mission. Below, you’ll find more information on the mission of CMJ and some ways that you can be involved in this!
The Church’s Ministry Among Jewish People mission is to equip local congregations to share the transforming love of Messiah Jesus with their Jewish friends and neighbors. As a partner congregation, Christ Our King expresses this in many practical ways:
 
Supporting and educating local believers
Praying for the peace of Jerusalem
Combating anti-semitism
Teaching Christians about their Jewish Roots
Proclaiming the return of the King
 
“As Christians who are called to share the Gospel with all mankind, we acknowledge that Christians have a special responsibility to love, defend, and share the Gospel with God’s historic, chosen people, the Jews. We take seriously the words of the Apostle Paul that the Gospel is “to the Jew first and then the Gentile” and call upon all Christians to do the same.”
