Our Mission Statement
Maoz Israel Ministries, a Messianic Jewish ministry in Israel, is a catalyst & vehicle for outreach, training, translating, publishing, music recording, video production, economic and disaster relief, and has established and underwrites a Hebrew indigenous Messianic Jewish congregation in Tel Aviv.
Maoz exists to be a witness of the Good News to the people of Israel in outreach, discipleship and raising up godly Israeli leaders
until the day when "All Israel Shall be Saved."
Our ultimate goal is to see the Israeli people accept the atonement of their Messiah Yeshua as promised in Scripture.
While we continue to reach out to our people, we also have more specific goals:
- To teach the Bible - the Old and New Covenants - as the basis to know the way to abundant life in this world and eternal life in the next.
- Establish a safe environment which will allow fellowship for Messianic believers, a steady personal spiritual growth for new believers and be a vehicle for outreach throughout Israel.
- Help Israeli believers mature in their faith and personal walk with the Lord.
- Financially help the poor and needy believers in Israel, as well as victims of war and terror.
- Help Israeli believers persecuted for their faith in Messiah as they fight for freedom of religion.
- Help new immigrant believers and young Israeli believers, who are the future of the Messianic Movement in Israel, reach their full potential.
- Outside Israel, our goal is to spread awareness among the nations of the world about Israel and the Middle East conflict, and give a prophetic perspective for current events in Israel.

Measuring our Success
With the understanding that the ultimate achievements of Maoz Israel Ministries could only be measured in eternity, we have several indications of our continual success in Israel.
Note: Though we would love to give you specific numbers, names and exciting events happening in Israel as a result of the outreach of Maoz Israel, because of religious persecution we must refrain from doing so. Nevertheless, after over 30 years of ministry and outreach in the Holy Land we can clearly see that the Lord is moving upon this nation in an unprecedented way!
At Congregation Tiferet Yeshua in Tel Aviv we constantly see Israelis receiving their Messiah, growing in their faith, maturing in their relationship with God and using their gifts for the Kingdom. The total number of Messianic Jews in Israel has grown from a mere handful in the early 1970's, to some 15,000 believers today. Maoz has been an integral part of the Messianic Jewish movement in Israel since 1976.
We rejoice as we see young Israelis rise up as the next generation of congregational leaders, worship leaders, youth leaders and pioneers in the market place and other key positions in society and the Body of Messiah.
Our Hebrew Book Publishing department has been expanding, and we've been publishing faith books as fast as we can get the funds. We now have a catalog with over 70 different Hebrew-language titles, and book stands in many Messianic congregations in Israel. We also have several seminars for personal and family growth available in DVD format, as well as the entire New Testament on audio CDs.
We are thrilled about the overwhelming support for our istandiwthisrael.com benevolent fund, which enables us to support the poor and needy believers in Israel. We see the results of our contributors as we watch families get out of debt, individuals receive better jobs and young people established in this land.
Through our Persecuted Believers fund we have been able to help Israeli believers with several court cases as they fight for freedom of religion as stated in the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights, of which Israel is a signatory.
We have been publishing the Maoz Israel Report for over 30 years, and it is now available online in eight languages: English, Hebrew, Portuguese, Spanish, German, Chinese, Korean and Russian. In addition, we have an expanding base of readers - both offline and online - and now provide weekly videos about events in Israel, or concerning Israel and Maoz Israel Ministries.
Keeping YOU in the Loop
Though it is impossible to report on every single project in which we are involved, we are keeping you in the loop on the major things happening in Israel and with Maoz Israel Ministries.
We are able to do this via publishing of our free monthly Maoz Israel Report, our weekly online prayer letter and monthly Maoz This Month email. We also produce videos about different areas of interest in Israel and/or the ministry of Maoz.
We also bring you personal testimonies and wider ministry updates through our annual reports to our readers. Here are just a couple of examples:
Maoz 2008 Annual Report (January 2009)
Our Special 30 Year Anniversary Edition (November 2006)
What the Future Holds
The Word of God says we should work while it's day, because times are coming when no man could work. (John 9:4) With this in mind, we sense the urgency of reaching as many as we can to explain the way to Eternal Life through the Messiah of Israel. We are planning to continue our various outreaches and projects, expanding where we can, especially in media, until the day when "All Israel Shall be Saved!"
