Kfar Yassef Baptist Church

Kofor-Yassef Baptist church was founded in 1940, as a result of a revival in eastern Jordan and Palestine, because of an amazing event that occurred to the sister Mrs.Em Saleem Kawaar, in Amman (Jordan) in 1933.

Thereafter Mr.Majed Kawaar (R.I.P) came from Jordan and simultaneously started to speak about Jesus and the salvation, during home assemblies that took place in Galilee including Kofor-Yassef village, at this time Mr.Saleem Jiries Shehadeh accepted Jesus Christ a savior.
