The Holy Land Christians Society’s mission focuses on three main goals in the Holy Land and the U.S. in response to the growing regional Israeli-Palestinian conflict and decline of the Christian minority:
- Support the Christian Community in the Holy Land
- Raise Awareness
- Advocate Peace
Our Inspiration to Take Action
The Christian presence in the Holy Land is declining daily. Currently, the Holy Land’s “living stones” (Christians) comprise only two percent of the population. The continued emigration of Palestinian Christians as a result of ongoing instability is having a negative impact on their presence in the land where Jesus was born, crucified and resurrected. Should this trend continue, an important spiritual destination, shared by billions throughout the world, will become nothing more than a museum, as the “living stones” who represent the Christian presence in the Holy Land cease to exist. It is our hope that through the establishment of two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security, an environment will be achieved that protects the pluralist nature of the Holy Land and allows minorities to thrive, including the indigenous Christian community.
