Yesod Bible Center is a faith-based Bible study ministry with an emphasis on evangelism, apologetics, and advancement of biblical scholarship.
Yesod means “foundation” in Hebrew. Yesod Bible Center fully affirms that Jesus the Messiah, LORD incarnate, is the only reliable spiritual foundation for one’s life and the only name in the universe by which human sins can be forgiven (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Corinthians 3:11). Likewise, we submit that the Bible is the inerrant and infallible Word of God given to human race as the solid foundation for living (Matthew 7:24–25). Scripture, being God-breathed, is perfect nourishment for our inner man, as well as God’s tool for transforming us in His holy image (2 Timothy 3:16–17; Romans 8:29).
At Yesod Bible Center, we submit that Scripture must be boldly preached to shine God’s truth into the darkness of our fallen world and to bring people to the saving knowledge of the Gospel. Furthermore, Apostle Paul pleads Timothy: “Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee” (1 Timothy 4:16, KJV). We assert that believers should commit themselves to an in-depth study of God’s Word in order to build a solid foundation for one’s faith which would not be shaken when challenged by the values of the world. Believers should also regularly examine their relationship with God in light of Scripture to confirm their calling and election (2 Corinthians 13:5; 2 Peter 1:10).
As part of our Bible study ministry, we strive to be an edifying resource to both non-believers and Christians by organizing Bible-based conferences, teaching seminars, and providing a plethora of free quality resources. We also offer LIVE, online Bible courses with a minimal fee to cover the cost of the video broadcasting. At Yesod Bible Center, we are convinced that Scripture should be studied in its Jewish context from the biblical perspective in order to appreciate and “accurately handle” the Word of God (2 Timothy 2:15). Therefore, in our teaching, we utilize a wide array of academic sources in apologetics, ancient Near Eastern studies, biblical Hebrew, and Judaica to facilitate multidimensional study and application of Scripture.
The objectives of our Bible study ministry and our fervent prayer are to reach out to both non-believers and believers with the life-transforming power of God’s Word. To that end, we seek to partner with churches, ministries and academic institutions in creating opportunities for collaborative outreach and solid biblical teaching. We live in the end times. Thus, we are convinced that Bible-believing Christians should come together as one army of the Living God to destroy the works of the devil and rescue deceived and lost souls (Proverbs 24:11; Luke 19:10; 1 John 3:8; Ephesians 6:10-17).
We need your prayers and support! Please contact us with your ideas and comments! We look forward to being one team in Jesus the Messiah!
