Baptists are the largest Evangelical group in Israel today. This vibrant and growing community enjoys fellowship together through the Association of Baptist Churches in Israel, which seeks to be salt and light and glorify God in the place He chose to dwell and become man.

There are 17 churches in the Association, the majority of which are among the Christian Arab population in the North.

Christians are also a minority; the 140,000 Christians amount to only 2% of the country’s total population.

There are around 3,000 people in the Baptist community which forms 2% of the total Christian population in Israel.

Baptists in Israel run Nazareth Baptist School, a K-12 school with 1000 students. NBS works in partnership with home and church to build a foundation, based on the word of God, on which a child’s faith-formation and education take place. Local Baptists also established the Nazareth Evangelical Theological Seminary (NOT COLLEGE?) “NEC” which serves as a seminary that trains Christian leaders and pastors.
