We are the Congregation of The Way, Aydat HaDerekh in Fort Myers, Florida.

Where Everyone Is Welcome!
At Aydat HaDerekh, we as Messianic Jews believe Yeshua (Jesus in Hebrew) is the Messiah.
Messianic Judaism is a movement of people from all walks of life who believe that Yeshua is the promised Messiah and the Savior for Israel and the world. Messianic Jews have not stopped being Jewish. On the contrary we have continued to remain strongly Jewish in our identity and lifestyle, and in our belief that Yeshua is the Jewish Messiah.
Historically, Yeshua was Jewish. He was raised in a Jewish home and ministered to the Jewish people in a Jewish land (Eretz Israel). The disciples were Jewish. The apostles were Jewish. The writers of the Brit Hadashah (New Covenant or New Testament) were Jewish, and for a time, the faith in Messiah Yeshua was almost exclusively among Jewish people. It is estimated that more than one million Jewish people in the first century CE believed that Yeshua was the Messiah.
Messianic Synagogues are the heart of the Messianic Movement. Aydat HaDerekh is a place for Jewish faith in Messiah Yeshua. Standing with us are many non-Jewish members who have a burden and love for the Jewish people. They understand what G-d is doing among the Jewish people.
Finally, we wish to invite you to join with us. All Jewish believers need to consider the importance of continuing to live as a Jew and not assimilate away from His Jewish people. We have an eternal Covenant with G-d that goes back to Abraham. G-d has a purpose for the Nation of Israel, and this covenant relationship is eternal ~B’resheet (Genesis) 17:1-8.
Everyone is welcome to join us at any of our services. Our seating at Aydat HaDerekh is always free and unassigned. We are also a great place for fellowship and worship for inter-faith families.
IT’S ALL ABOUT G-D AND MESSIAH.
