Unconditional solidarity and friendship

Christians for Israel International - 10 June 2021

Since our establishment in 1979, Christians for Israel International has always stood in unconditional solidarity and friendship with the State of Israel and the Jewish people, regardless of who its President and its governmental leadership are.

Our friendship and solidarity with Israel are based on the everlasting Biblical Covenants that God made with the nation of Israel, and on the promises that He gave to the Jewish people that will all be fulfilled. We believe that God is bringing His people back to the land of their forefathers. He will protect and guide His people to their ultimate destination. As the prophet Micah says: “Instead, each of them will sit under his vine and under his fig tree, with no one to make them afraid, because the mouth of the Lord of armies has spoken” (Micah 4:4). God can use governments and leaders, but is not dependent on them. He is in control.

As Christians, our task is not to criticize the people of Israel or tell them what to do. Recognizing our own failures and shortcomings, the Church should comfort the Jewish people in their time of difficulty, and encourage and support them to live up to their calling.

Christians for Israel International represents hundreds of thousands of Christians worldwide. We have operations in over 40 countries. The key mission of our national teams is to provide teaching in Christian churches about God’s everlasting faithfulness to the Jewish people and about the everlasting unique position of Israel in God’s redemptive plan for the world. Furthermore we mobilize Christians to support Israel in action and prayer and to fight against Antisemitism and Anti-Zionism.

We share our solidarity with the Jewish people by supporting Aliyah, many humanitarian projects in Israel as well as a large organization serving Holocaust survivors and Jewish families living in poverty in Ukraine.
