When one speaks of a vision, he has in mind the basic picture to be painted on the canvas of living. Messianic Judaism is, as yet, in its childhood stage. Without a vision, it will not have direction for growth. What is our vision of Messianic Judaism?
It is nothing less than to recover the dynamic power of the Gospel in the midst of the Jewish community. From the spread of the Good News in the context of Jewish loyalty will come an authentic Jewish expression of the New Testament faith. This expression will take various forms from independent congregations to Jewish wings of other New Testament groups. Yet it is our hope that all of these groups will grow over time in an affirmation and practice that has continuity with the beginnings of the faith in the first century.
