“Imagine becoming the
first believer in your community

and there is no one to disciple you or to teach you how to establish a congregation.”

"It made me realize how great God is and how faithful He is, and it’s not important what background we come from, Arab or Jewish, God is for all of us."
– Shamss Asfour, Arab student from Nazareth
"I didn’t really understand what love was, what brotherly love was, or love for the Lord, until I came to Israel College of the Bible. I started to tell friends in Bethlehem that I found a new family!”
– Ziyad Bannoura, Palestinian Pastor
“What happened in this class is an historical event”
– Meno Kalisher, Jewish Pastor
“One of the most moving experiences I had was during our weekly time of collective worship. I opened my eyes and looked out over the student body. I suddenly noticed how we had come to study from all kinds of different backgrounds, but we were united in praising the Lord together.”
– Jewish student
“Even though I am preaching already 26 years, I received a new way”
– Yossi Ovadia, Jewish Pastor
“It was a year of education. Most importantly, a standard of teaching, a standard of how to approach the Bible, a standard of church management. What I will take is the expository teaching because…as a pastor / elder, I am measured by God by the way I did with His Word. And when Israel College of the Bible gave me enhancement for this tool, that’s what counts in the end of the day before the throne of Messiah”
– Meno Kalisher, Jewish Pastor

A place where Jews and Arabs no longer need to leave their land or study in a different language.

Impact on the Local Church

One For Israel Congregation Icon
The Body of Messiah (the Church) in Israel is young. Like modern Israel, it can also be said it was founded in 1948. At that time, there were only a handful of believing families in the Land.

Jews & Arabs Together

“In the early 2010s the political situation had caused a growing divide amongst the Jewish and Arab believers in Israel. Something needed to be done.”

“The joint MA program brought together our Jewish and Arab Pastors and it was a game changer…” Watch here.

WHAT'S NEXT?

“It will be like going from having your whole operation in a basement to getting to move in to the whole house. Having a new campus will have that kind of impact, taking our Bible college from being just a building, to a multi-faceted epicenter, specifically designed and engineered to serve the Body of Messiah in Israel.”
