The Jewish heart of Christianity is our Messiah, Jesus, and is best explored through understanding the original Jewish context and perspective of the Scriptures. This is something new.
The vision of Sojourner Ministries is to explore the Jewish heart of Christianity.
- The Jewish heart of Christianity is the Messiah, Jesus
- The Jewish heart of Christianity is explored through the Scripture, which the Messiah incarnates; the ancient Hebrews' living record of God's interaction and program for both Jews and Gentiles throughout history
The purpose of Sojourner Ministries' exploration of the Jewish heart of Christianity is the instruction of believers in the original Jewish context and perspective of the Scriptures, resulting in richer connection to our Hebrew roots, deeper concern for the Jewish people and renewed appreciation for the plan of God.
To use a variety of communication forums to:
- Restore to the church the original Jewish context and perspective of the Scripture
