The Jacob Plan is a ministry arm of The Church at Stirling that resources the wider body by teaching on the importance of the Hebraic roots of our Christian faith. Jesus was born a Jew, lived as a Jew, talked as a Jew and worshipped as a Jew, so to best understand Him and His teachings we need to approach Him from a Hebraic perspective. It is to this root, the Hebraic root, which the Church is grafted in to (Romans 11:17-24).
With this understanding of the Hebraic roots of our Christian faith, The Jacob Plan also teaches the wider body on ‘Why care for Israel’, a teaching that examines the scriptural basis for ‘Gentile Christians’ to love Jews and to stand in support of the Nation of Israel. This teaching illuminates what we believe is a clear scriptural duty (Rom 15:27) to minister and support our Jewish brothers with tangible expressions of God’s love including our support / solidarity for the modern day Nation of Israel.
We are committed to the following goals:
1.The convergence of the Jew and Gentile in Messiah (One New Man Ephesians 2:15).
2.To educate and equip Christians to identify with the Biblical/Hebraic foundations of our faith
3.To encourage meaningful and supportive relationships between Christians and Jews.
4.To bless the Nation of Israel and Jews worldwide, through practical assistance, volunteer service, and prayer.
5.To communicate Christian perspectives to the attention of Israeli leaders and the Jewish community-at-large.
6.To counter Anti-Semitism worldwide and maintain there is no excuse for acts of terrorism against Israel. We believe that Israel has the same right as every other nation to defend her citizens from such violent attacks.
7.To support Israel’s divine God-given right to exist in her God-given land. We believe that the Jewish people have a right to live in their ancient land of Israel, and that the modern State of Israel is the fulfilment of this historic right. We stand with our brothers and sisters in Israel speaking out on their behalf whenever and wherever necessary.
“For Zion’s sake we will not hold our peace and for Jerusalem’s sake we will not rest” (Is.62:1).
