Many of Messianic Believers began as Christians and come from a conservative, evangelical background.
They grew up with a core values of this tradition: doctrinal correctness (or, as others would see it, doctrinal conservatism), a personal relationship with Jesus, and a Passion for Reaching lost people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Most evangelicals are dispensationalist wich teaches that the Jewish people still have a prophetic role to play in G-D´s plan; for many dispensationalists, then, a further search into the Jewish roots of their faith is a natural step.
Messianic survey claimed that this Messianic Gentiles bring with them the core value of doctrinal correctness as they embark of their search for a more Jewish framework within which to read the Scriptures or even, for many, for a more Jewish expression of faith.
But some think differently - what they say, "but the Almighty will bless us because we are more obedient, more observant, more in tune than others are with what the Bible really means and teaches."
The problem is that it is impossible to be an obedient disciple without making more disciples. It is one of the core commandments in the Gospels and one of the primary duties of a disciple.
Reading through the Book of Acts, observe that the apostles are not rejoicing or bragging that they were more right than all those who were not following Yeshua. They had a clear vision and burden for those who had not yet believed in Yeshua; they rejoiced to see the work of G-D in the lives of others - in the lives of those who had not previously been disciples but who had chosen to take on the yoke of discipleship.
