Celebrate Messiah’s Core Values are…
Celebrate Messiah exists to pray for, evangelize, disciple, and serve Jewish people everywhere and to help fellow believers do the same. We affirm our commitment to the essence of historic, evangelical faith and our core theological emphases when it comes to Jewish evangelism.
1. PRIORITY OF JEWISH EVANGELISM
We are deeply committed to bringing the Gospel “to the Jew first…” (Romans 1:16). We believe that the Bible gives priority to Jewish evangelism within the broader context of Yeshua’s command to preach the Gospel to all peoples.
2. MOTIVATED BY LOVE
We firmly believe that the core motivation of sharing the Gospel with any people is the love of God demonstrated in the Person of Yeshua the Messiah.
3. EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION
We are committed to sharing the Gospel in a culturally relevant and effective way, without compromising the claims of Messiah.
4. UNITY IN MESSIAH
We deeply value the unity of the whole body of Messiah, and will seek to maintain fellowship with all people involved in the Church and associated missionary organisations. We believe in the equality of all believers in Messiah.
5. MUTUAL ACCOUNTABILITY
We value the need to be accountable to each other, to associated ministries and to the wider body of Messiah.
6. INTENTIONAL DISCIPLESHIP
We believe that the fruit of evangelism must be preserved by the intentional disciplining of new believers into worshiping communities and Messiah-like lifestyles.
7. SPIRITUAL INTEGRITY
We firmly believe that the messenger must honestly seek to live a life that is consistent with the Message.
8. HUMAN DIGNITY
We strongly believe that since all human beings are made in the image of God, how we treat them is a reflection of our love and respect for Him. We also believe that the worker is more important than the work.
“How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news.'” – Romans 10:14-15
