FIRM is a global fellowship of Biblically-grounded believers committed to cultivating Messiah-centered relationships that bless the inhabitants of Israel—Jews, Arabs, and others—and the Jewish community around the world.
We believe that standing with Israel is more than a political statement — it goes far deeper than that. Standing with Israel is a spiritual attitude. Our connection with the Jewish people has been marred by many tragic events in history. The church has much repenting and repair work to do.
In Matthew 25:31-46 Jesus tells a parable about how the nations treated his “brethren”. Many scholars understand that “brethren” refers to his earthly brethren, the Jews, and the how we treat them is how we treat him.
Just as Ruth, the gentile said to Naomi, the Jew, “Your people will be my people, your God, my God”, we follow God’s heart for His destiny for His covenant people.
