Christians for Israel is a non-denominational movement. We believe that Christians of all denominations and backgrounds should be united in their love for the Jewish people, in their support for Israel and in their collective repentance because of Jewish suffering throughout Church history.
Our mission is to bring Biblical understanding in the Church and among the nations concerning God's purposes for Israel and to promote comfort of Israel through prayer and action.
Our vision is to establish a global network of Christians having local impact, for the blessing of the nation of Israel, the Jewish people and the church.
Our strategy is to equip Christians in the nations to understand God’s purposes with the Jewish people and the nation of Israel, and to stand in the gap between Israel and the Church.
Christians for Israel
‘And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’ For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’’ (Luke 18:3-5).
The introduction to this interesting parable from the Gospel of Luke is, ‘Then Jesus told His disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up.’ I think that many of us have a particular prayer that we have been praying often but which has not been answered yet. This parable is a great encouragement for anyone who wrestles with unanswered prayers. It can also encourage us as we pray for Israel. We may hardly dare to hope that our prayers for peace for Israel or for the decline of antisemitism will become reality. Yet, the Bible calls us to continue in steadfast prayer.
‘I call on You, my God, for You will answer me; turn Your ear to me and hear my prayer’ (Psalm 17:6).
