Watch this 4-minute video to get a deeper vision of the Messianic calling.

MESSIANIC MANDATE is proclaiming Messiah in Spirit, truth and power. We present the Gospel in its original and inherently Jewish context to the Jewish people.

Of critical importance is the local Messianic synagogue, a "natural habitat for the natural olive".  We are an outreach ministry of City of David Messianic Synagogue in Toronto where there are close to 200,000 Jewish people. Our heart's desire and prayer is to see all Israel saved.

We are also labouring to build up the Body of Messiah. We present edifying teaching on Israel and the Jewish foundation of New Covenant faith through ministry engagements, newsletters, seminars and the distribution of a variety of resources in churches throughout the GTA.

My brothers, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is that they may be saved. (Romans 10:1)
