Arab Christians

 ‘I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice, and there shall be one flock and one shepherd.’

John 10:16

Life for Christians in Bethlehem is often not easy. There is a high rate of unemployment and poverty among Arab Christians. Christians for Israel supports the First Baptist Church of Rev. Naim Khoury in Bethlehem and Jerusalem. The members of this church spread the gospel among Arabs and share their love and heart for Israel and the Jewish people.

Rev. Khoury and his church have been active for a long time. Naim preaches about God’s faithfulness towards Israel and the Jewish people, but his love for Israel is not accepted in Bethlehem. Rev. Khoury and his church face opposition, intimidation and even violence, yet he continues with his important work.
