"Teaching the Ancient Path of our Hebrew Messiah"
Ami Yisrael ("My people Israel") is a Sabbath keeping, Torah pursuant, Hebrew Roots fellowship that is firmly grounded on the teachings and example of Yeshua the Messiah (Jesus Christ).
Over 3500 years ago, God lead Israel to Mount Sinai - the 'Mountain of God' - to recieve His Torah - the path of righteousness. If they had heeded God's word stayed on the path, they would have become an example to the nations of how a people who follow the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob would be blessed. But because they failed to do so, and instead twist and corrupted His words, the Israelites were ultimately scattered to the four winds.
In due time, Messiah Yeshua came to re-establish the proper application of Torah and to redirect the Hebraic walk back to what was given on the Mountain. He commisioned His disciples to follow in His footsteps, and annouce the gospel of restoration which would eventually culminate in the re-establishment of the Kingdom of God on Earth. By their words the world was turned "upside-down" as thousands of Jewish and non-Jewish people came to believe that Yeshua was indeed the long expected Hebrew Messiah, and that He would soon return and re-establish His kingdom on the Earth.
Our mission statement expresses our desire to continue to follow the mandate given to the disciples - to teach His people the good news of the Kingdom of God, to admonish them to observe all the things He commanded, and to raise up deciples to Him. We feel that mandate can best be accomplished by teaching His words from within the context and culture of the Hebrew people. After all, He was a Hebrew, and the Hebrew culture is the culture from which the entire New Testament was written.
