Lutherans in Jewish Evangelism

Mission Statement

The mission of LIJE is to effectively communicate the Gospel to Jewish people and to integrate Jewish believers into the Body of Messiah such that their Jewish identity is affirmed and honored.

The major focus of Lutherans in Jewish Evangelism is to establish Messianic Friendship groups in cooperation with LCMS congregations. Messianic Friendship groups are small home Bible study groups that study Messianic prophecy, our Jewish heritage as Christians, and which develop personal witnessing skills for sharing the Gospel with Jewish people. Most Jewish people come to faith not through the efforts of missionaries or evangelists, but through friendships and personal relationships with individual Christians.
