I've received some questions lately about whether or not I support Israel, and whether or not I believe Christianity has Jewish roots.
The quick answer is: YES.
In a nutshell, I believe (and everyone involved in this ministry's staff and board believes) that the Jewish people are God's covenant people, and that the Gentile church is grafted into God's original covenant with Abraham through the blood of Jesus Christ. This is what the Bible says, particularly in the book of Romans.

We also fully support the nation of Israel. We believe that he who curses Israel brings a curse upon himself, but he who blesses Israel brings blessings upon himself.
As it says in Genesis 12:1-3:
“Now the Lord had said to Abram: ‘Get out of your country, from your family and from your father’s house, to a land that I will show you.
I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.
I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed'” (Genesis 12:1-3).
