New Covenant Forum : Encouraging Conversation About Jesus the Jewish Messiah
Home :

What We Do

We take the words of the Apostle Paul seriously when he wrote:

“I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last. (Romans 1:16-17 NIV)”

We are convinced that the greatest need of humankind is to find peace with God, and that can only come as one is rightly related to God through faith in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ). We are committed to proclaiming the message of Yeshua as given in the Holy Scriptures – the Jewish Scriptures (Tanakh) and the New Covenant (New Testament).  We give priority to the people to whom this message was the first entrusted – the Jewish people.

To the Jew first ….

On-line

This website is just one way that we try to reach out to people with the Gospel (Gospel means Good News in Greek).  We hope that honest seekers will utilize it to find out more about Yeshua and what makes us believe he is the Messiah of Israel.

We also have a blog where we share various issues regarding the messianic claims of Christ and issues related to Jewish faith in Him.  We encourage people to respond in an honest and constructive manner.  It is important to be able to dialogue in a safe environment that is maintained with integrity and is caring in attitude.

In Life

We also try to get out into the community and to develop relationships both with those who are willing to hear our message, and those who are not.  We believe that true love is unconditional, and though we will always be forthright in expressing what we believe to be true (i.e. salvation in Messiah Yeshua), we do not force our message on anyone, nor do we withhold our friendship to those who will not believe.

We are also looking for opportunities to meet with people and to offer our time in sharing the truths about the Gospel.  This can mean one-on-one time, or in a Group Bible Study.  We are also happy to visit synagogues and other Jewish organizations and groups that are open to exploring the reasons why more and more Jews are believing in Jesus.  Feel free to contact us with any questions or requests.

In Print

We also offer a variety of books and other literature designed to help Jewish people understand that faith in Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) is the biblical Jewish faith.

In Messiah

We also want to help our fellow mishpokhe – those Jewish brothers and sisters who believe in Yeshua.  We hope that you will find us a useful resource, whether it is

  • to know more about the Jewish roots of the Christian faith,
  • to find a good bible-believing and teaching fellowship,
  • to find out how better to share the Gospel with your Jewish relatives and friends
  • or to put us in contact with a Jewish person you think is willing to hear about Jesus

 

Then for the Gentile ….

New Covenant Forum wants to make itself available to non-Jewish people as well.  If you are seeking to understand and to believe in Jesus, then we would like to help direct you in your search.  Find out more.

For our Gentile brothers and sisters in Christ, like our Jewish brethren we hope to be a useful resource to you.  We want to help you to understand the Jewish roots of the faith in order to encourage, empower and equip you to be able to share the Gospel with your Jewish friends and neighbours, workmates and classmates, effectively and sensitively.  Find out more.

For this purpose, we are happy to come to your church or group meeting.  We have many messages that we can bring.

Canada's oldest on-going mission to the Jewish community. Proclaiming Jesus as Messiah and Saviour since 1894.
