Whilst there are many individual Christian communities, Christians and organisations and groups of Christians who love and support Israel, a strong and clear united Christian voice to the Christian community, the Jewish community and the wider world is currently lacking in the UK. We are filling this void and giving a voice to Christian unity in support for Israel as the ‘United Christian Alliance for Israel’. This United Alliance can stand against significantly greater numbers and can withstand against great pressures, and it is our opinion, and our determination to grasp this present opportunity and to unite with all who share this voice of love, concern and support for Israel.
The vision of the United Christian Alliance for Israel is to represent a unified voice of Christian leadership based on the scriptural authority of the continued importance of Israel to God. It is a strategic alliance of the Christian community, Church, organisation and ministry leaders who have a desire to address anti-Semitism, anti-Israelism and the Biblical truth about Israel to the wider Christian community, the Jewish community and the wider society with a Christian voice of love and support for Israel.
Motivated by Christian faith, UCAI unites Bible focused Christian communities, organisations and Christian leaders to proactively stand in support of the Jewish community in Biblical support of Israel through a united positive voice.
The aims of UCAI are twofold:-
- Firstly, to endorse the Judaic root of our Christian faith by standing with the UK and world-wide Jewish community. This has already involved a joint UCAI and JLC Leadership delegation to Israel; UK based joint meetings and seminars and will involve a UK Night to Celebrate Israel.
- Secondly, to resource the Christian community in the UK with the sharp Biblical truth so they are galvanised to believe the promises regarding Israel, the land and the Jewish people and to boldly act on and speak out about their beliefs motivated by faith and love.
In order to achieve these aims, UCAI has and will train media spokespeople for TV and radio interviews to convey a Christian voice of support for Israel and the publication of a series of educational booklets entitled ‘The Unaskable Questions’.
Whilst UCAI is still in the infancy stages of growing as a new organisation, it is already attracting interest and support from across the Christian community and Jewish community in the UK.
‘Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken’. Ecclesiastes 4:12 (NKJV)
This ancient Jewish text portrays a graphic picture of the great potential of people united in purpose to be able to stand against significantly greater numbers and to withstand against significantly greater pressure. History bears witness to the truth of this text, that a unified minority can often overcome significantly greater odds and examples can be cited from physical battlefields but also from the battle grounds of academic thought and reason, political discourse and policy formation. We are hopeful that in the coming years UCAI will become an important point of reference for Christians and Jews in this endeavor.
