Most Messianic Christian Churches Lack Official Approval

[125] prayers in [12] nations have been posted for Messianic Christian Churches.

While a few Messianic Christian churches in Israel have been able to obtain official nonprofit status and its accompanying benefits, most of the more than 300 Messianic congregations in the country have not. “This requires legal work as well as the approval of the Ministry of the Interior,” said VOM’s regional director for the Middle East. “Most congregations face challenges in becoming official, government-recognized churches.” Pray that more Messianic congregations will be able to gain nonprofit status so they can function as publicly recognized churches.

  • Father God with all the trouble surrounding Israel it is sad to see that there is division within the country because of their faith. Touch the hearts of those in charge to see Messianic Christians just want to worship the Lord in peace. Let the church be given what they need to be recognized as a viable entity to receive benefits. In Jesus name Amen.
