of the Israeli people and by the Spirit of God, Dr. DeYoung founded the Assembly at Jerusalem, a Bible preaching church that meets in the holy city. Today, Jimmy travels the world proclaiming the good news of Christ's gift of eternal life and soon coming return for His Church, using the means of media, radio, television, books, and the internet, as well as by preaching in Churches and assemblies across the globe.
