5. The 'Purpose of O.M.I.' is three fold, 1. To love Jewish people to Christ their Messiah and non-Jewish people (Gentiles) as well. 2. To help Jewish people in problematic situations and non-Jewish people (Gentiles) as well. 3. To teach Jewish people about the engrafted branches and non-Jewish people (Gentiles) about their Jewish roots. Romans 11:13-25
7. The ‘Paradigm of O.M.I.’ is three fold, ‘Vision, Commitment, Direction.’ Prov. 29:18. We seek only ‘To Glorify God;’ ‘Exalt Jesus Christ;’ and ‘Fill Your Baskets!’ We believe our greatest ministry still lies before us as we; ”Launch out into the deep and let down our nets for a draught.” We would be honored to have you on our team with both oars in the water. Nevertheless, we covet your prayers and friendship in this ministry, “To the Jew first and also to the Gentile.” Romans 1:16

6. The ‘Promise of OMI’ is three fold, and lies in Luke 5:4, a verse God impressed upon my heart. “Launch out into the deep and let down your nets for a draught.” We are not quite sure what all that means yet but our assurance lies in Luke 5:6-7, “They enclosed; a great multitude of fish; their nets broke; and their boats began to sink.” None of this will happen if we are not obedient, “Nevertheless, at thy word I will let down the net.” v.5 There’s the Promise; the Purpose; the Process; the Philosophy; the Partnership and the Parameters of OMI. Together they will produce fruit unto everlasting life, that’s His Promise to us (Jn. 6:27), a verse God gave to me while running radar in my police cruiser in January1976.
4. The ‘Process of O.M.I.’ is three fold, ’Evangelize, Educate, Edify’ through a myriad of channels; Hebrew Christian Fellowships; Bible Correspondence School; Bibles For Baltimore; Torah Studies; Tape & CD Ministry; Literature Distribution; Rabbinical Ministry; Discipleship & Counseling; Prophecy Conferences; Jewish Outreach Seminars; Passover & Hanukkah Demo’s; Revivals & Renovations; Paleo-Hebrew Class; The Scarlet Worm; Preaching & Teaching; Personal Soul Winning; Research Projects; Blogs, and a host of other ministries. Ephesians 4:11-12
3. The ‘Philosophy of O.M.I.’ is three fold. It is that in all of our activities, outreaches and ministries we will preach Christ crucified, risen and coming again, the rightful heir to the throne of David and Savior to all who will put their trust in Him, “To the Jew first and also (at the same time) to the Gentile.” I Corinthians 1:22-25
2. The ‘Partnership of O.M.I.’ is three fold, ‘God, His Church and His Missionaries.’ Ecc. 4:9-12 says, “Two are better than one; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.” Someone once said, “Without us God won’t, without God we don’t, without you we can’t.” Missions is more than a co-partnership, it is an association, an alliance, a fellowship of all three. You need us, we need you but we both need God. The ‘Great Commission’ is greater today than when it was first given by Jesus Christ 2,000 years ago. Matthew 28:18-20
“O.M.I. Mission Statement”
1. The ‘Parameters of O.M.I.’ are three fold and have not changed. As you are aware, 30% of all the Jewish people in the world make their residence between Boston and Baltimore. We are strategically located in the ‘Jewish Belt’ of the world. Within two hours of our home we can reach 1.5 million Jewish people. Add one hour and we can reach 3.5 million Jewish people. The name ‘Olivet Ministries International’ sets forth our parameters. Olivet points to the nation of Israel and the Jewish people the Lord called us to in May of 1992. The word Ministries according to Webster means, ‘to give aid and service’ especially the Gospel, to the Jew first and also to the Gentile. The word International refers to the scope and focus of our ministry, ‘The World!’ Not just Baltimore, but ‘The whole World!’ Mark 16:15
