Guest speaker at First Baptist
LOCK HAVEN — First Baptist Church, 210 N. Vesper St., Lock Haven, will be hosting guest speaker Ari Hauben of Chosen People Ministries on March 15 at 6 p.m.
Hauben will present a program centered around Antisemitism and the Gospel.
Chosen People Ministries is an over 100 year old mission that was founded in 1894 by Leopold Cohn, a Hungarian rabbi who came to believe that Jesus was the Messiah of Israel. From humble beginnings in Brooklyn, N.Y., Chosen People Ministries has grown into a worldwide ministry with outreach centers in Argentina, Australia, Canada, England, France, Germany, Israel, Mexico, Ukraine and the United States.
Chosen People Ministries is unwavering in its commitment to bring the Gospel message of salvation in Jesus “to the Jew first and the Gentile” throughout the world. In stressing the Jewish roots of Christian faith, the organization hopes to make the message of the Messiah more accessible to Jewish people and also to help Christian believers achieve a greater appreciation of the Jewish basis of their own faith traditions.
Members of the Christian and Jewish communities are encouraged to attend this program. For more information call 570-748-3744.
