A presence in the Land for all its people - Jews, Arabs, and Christians
Even now we continue our ministry of being a witness to both Jews and Gentiles of God's love and faithfulness found in Jesus the Messiah. Today we express this in many practical ways: supporting and educating local believers, praying for the peace of Jerusalem, combating anti-semitism, teaching Christians about their Jewish Roots, and proclaiming the return of the King.
The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, the splendour of Carmel and Sharon; they will see the glory of the LORD, the splendour of our God.
Dr Garth Gilmour, CMJ Israel's Executive Director
CMJ has been in Israel since the 1830s with a three-fold purpose to inform the Gentile church of the Jewish roots of the Christian faith, to serve and honour the Jewish people by being a presence in the Land, and thirdly to seek their spiritual restoration.
