  • To show concern for the Jewish people and the reborn state of Israel. "Comfort, comfort My people, says your God." (Isaiah 40:1)

  • To present to Christians a true understanding of what is taking place in the Land today so that world events may be interpreted in the light of God's Word. "You will arise and have mercy on Zion; For the time to favor her, Yes, the set time, has come. For Your servants take pleasure in her stones, And show favor to her dust. So the nations shall fear the name of the LORD, And all the kings of the earth Your glory. For the LORD shall build up Zion; He shall appear in His glory." (Psalm 102:13-16)

  • To be a centre where Christians can gain a biblical understanding of Israel, and learn to be rightly related to the nation. "That at that time you were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation." (Ephesians 2:12-14)

  • To remind and encourage Christians worldwide to pray for the peace of Jerusalem, the land of Israel, and the Jewish people. "You who call on the Lord, give yourselves no rest, and give Him no rest till He establishes Jerusalem and makes her the praise of the earth." (Isaiah 62:6-7)

  • To stimulate Christian leaders, churches and organisations to become effective influences in their countries on behalf of Israel and the Jewish people. "Now the LORD had said to Abram: "Get out of your country, From your family And from your father's house, To a land that I will show you. I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed." (Genesis 12:1-3)

  • To be part of God's great purposes in bringing the Jews back to Israel. "See, I will beckon to the Gentiles, I will lift up my banner to the peoples; they will bring your sons in their arms and carry your daughters on their shoulders." (Isaiah 49:22)

  • To begin or assist projects in Israel, for the well-being of all who live there. "Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me." (Matthew 25:40)

  • To build bridges of reconciliation between Jew and Arab. "...Blessed be Egypt my people, Assyria my handiwork, and Israel my inheritance." (Isaiah 19:25)
