Welcome to M.T.O.I. We are dedicated to serving YHWH as He brings the Body of Messiah together worldwide. We pray that this website becomes a valuable resource for you to learn, grow, and fellowship with other like-minded believers from around the world who desire to connect with you and help you feel connected.
It is our goal to facilitate by providing a safe structure and environment by promoting a general respect for all, where everyone is encouraged to serve each other, while allowing space for people to walk out their own salvation. We endeavor to have an organization and leadership that is transparent as it serves the needs of the Body. We will take a Biblical stand when viewing any divisive issues and attempt to clear up the mass of confusion that is out there.
We will utilize all available technology and social media to help share information and encourage discussion, education, and support. We will leverage all of our resources to provide benevolence, counseling, outreach, courses, and instructional teachings for mass distribution to all that are interested or in need domestically and globally.
There are several ways in which we meet the above objectives:
The M.T.O.I. Leadership Team
We have an M.T.O.I. Leadership Team in place that is available to provide counsel, accountability, and assistance to members and member congregations that request it. Our Leadership Team is a cohesive unit working together to serve the Body. The Leadership Team meets bi-weekly to ensure that they are addressing issues and needs within the Body on a timely basis. Information about each member of the Leadership Team will be made available on the Leadership Team webpage in the near future.
The M.T.O.I. Website
This website has been designed and developed with the Body of Believers in mind. It is a powerful tool in our efforts to serve the Body by providing a dynamic platform to encourage, educate, and support. The two tabs that encompass our services for you are found under The Whole Word and Connect. The Whole Word provides access to all of our teachings on the site and through social media platforms. More information about our focus on The Whole Word is below. As a virtual congregation, we understand the importance of connecting and fellowshipping with other like-minded believers. The Connect tab gives you the opportunity to join our virtual congregation, contact us, submit prayer requests, participate in feast gatherings, sign up for our weekly newsletters, and connect with us and others via social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. If there is something you are looking for and cannot find on our site, let us know. We are here to serve you to the best of our capacity.
M.T.O.I. Global Missions
While based in the United States, we have a strong desire to serve all people of all nations by providing access to The Whole Word globally. M.T.O.I. is an umbrella organization providing a covering for local congregations regardless of location. We want to put "boots on the ground" in areas where Torah Observant congregations have organically developed. Not everyone is called to be a missionary and we respect that. We ask that you consider supporting us prayerfully or financially, as Yahweh leads you. Read more >>.
We have several ministries in which you can also serve the Body of Believers. While we believe in serving others to the best of our abilities, we also believe it is important to provide you the opportunity to do the same. Each ministry can be considered a spoke in the umbrella of M.T.O.I. overall. Ministries are currently available based on either gender or age. We have the M.T.O.I. Ladies Ministry; the M.T.O.I. Men's Ministry; and the Y.M.T.O.I. which encompasses the young congregants of M.T.O.I., within the general age range of 5-20. Since this is such a wide age range, it is further divided into the children's ministry (age 5-12) and the young adult's ministry (age 13-20). More information about the myriad M.T.O.I. ministries will be forthcoming!.
M.T.O.I. University aka Learn with Us
The backbone of M.T.O.I. is The Whole Word of Yahweh. It is only through in-depth instruction on The Whole Word that we are able to clear up some of the mass confusion that is out there. It is through our teachings that we are able to take a stand on issues that are currently dividing the Body of Believers. M.T.O.I. University has not been created with a "we teach, you listen" approach; rather, we want you to Learn with Us. All of our teachings have four main objectives built in: learning, doing, defending, and teaching.
Obviously one of the main goals of any teaching is to help you to learn something - something that Yahweh wants you to learn with the prompting of the Ruach. Our teachings are in-depth without being boring. Many of our teachings are serial in nature because we take the time to search out what the Scriptures say - in its entirety - about a specific topic, word, or doctrine. We recognize that knowledge, for its own sake, is worthless; that is why we have our second objective - doing.
Our second teaching goal is to instruct you on what to do with the knowledge that you have gained from the teachings. Walking the path of righteousness requires you to walk - step-by-step. But for those of us that grew up in the traditional, denominational church system, knowing what steps to take can be confusing. Our teachings take you beyond learning and into doing and applying - actively living out our faith and beliefs each day. Obviously living out your walk on the path of righteousness brings you to the attention of others, who oftentimes do not understand and start asking questions - like why?
It can be challenging to articulate what you believe and why you believe what it is that you believe. Our in-depth teachings are structured with the goal of providing you with the Scriptures, verses and explanations so that you will be able to learn and understand, put into action, and defend your beliefs. The ability to defend ones faith is often referred to as apologetics. While the term may imply apology, it actually means "reasoned arguments or writings in justification of something, typically a theory or religious doctrine." And that is a perfect description for out teachings - reasoned and logical arguments justifying our beliefs based on what the Scriptures really say. Our teachings are very thorough, yet simple and easy to understand so that you can learn, do, and defend. We believe that the ultimate goal is to then be able to teach others to learn, do, and defend.
What good is gaining all this wonderful knowledge about the Scriptures if you only use it for yourself, or to simply defend yourself? By keeping our teachings thorough, Scripturally based, and easy to understand, you too can begin to share the truths of the Scriptures with others. Let Yahweh work through you to reach others that are lost or entrenched in a system of lies and deception. Let your light shine to attract others. Some may ask questions because they really do not understand while others will inquire because they want what you possess. This is one of the reasons why we try to incorporate as many resources as possible on our teachings pages - tools that you can use for your own study and to help guide those who Yahweh draws to you.
While our teachings are predominantly audio and visually based, we are working to expand our teaching tools to include notes, word-for-word transcriptions, and downloadable e-books and publications. We want you to be able to read, hear, and see our teachings. The more engaged you are, the more you can receive, embrace, and guard The Whole Word in your heart.
We pray that this information helps you to gain a better understanding of who M.T.O.I. is and what we are all about.
