The Messianic Jewish Alliance of Australia Inc (MJAA) is a bible-based, non-denominational messianic association which brings together both Jewish and non-Jewish people of like faith and mind, with a shared vision for the proclamation of the good news of Yeshua the Messiah of Israel and Saviour of the world.
After 1500 years of frequent persecution by those who called themselves ‘Christians’ along with a presentation of the gospel that has made it appear completely non-Jewish, Jewish people have come to believe that to follow Yeshua is to leave the faith of their fathers and become non-Jews.
We believe that Yeshua (Jesus) is the Jewish Messiah promised to Israel and the world. That He was born, lived, died and rose from the dead in Israel. That He was foretold by the Jewish prophets in the Hebrew Scriptures and that his story was recorded for us by His Jewish followers in the Brit Hadashah (New Testament). Therefore, when a Jewish person follows Yeshua we hold to the view that they are doing a very Jewish thing. They are continuing in the faith of their fathers and they continue to be as a Jew.
The MJAA recognises God’s continuing purposes for the Jewish people and that the Scripture foresees the day when all Israel will be saved. Until then, the MJAA is committed to unite and represent the saved remnant of Israel and to foster its spiritual and numerical growth as a united witness of salvation in Yeshua to the wider Jewish community.
To this end we seek to encourage:
- a Jewish perspective of the Scriptures embracing Jewish and Gentile (non-Jewish) believers in churches and messianic congregations;
- activities which will aid our witnessing to the Jewish people with the gospel and motivate the involvement of both Messianic Jews and Gentiles;
- support for Jewish believers in Yeshua in the state of Israel and other parts of the world.
