Mission Statement

The International Christian Embassy Jerusalem was established in 1980 in recognition of the biblical significance of all of Jerusalem and its unique connection with the Jewish people. Today, it represents millions of Christians, churches, and denominations to the nation and people of Israel. We recognize in the restoration of the State of Israel God's faithfulness to keep His ancient covenant with the Jewish people.

  • To stand with Israel in support and friendship;
  • To equip and teach the world wide Church regarding God's purposes with Israel and the nations of the Middle East;
  • To be an active voice of reconciliation between Jews, Christians, and Arabs, and to support the churches and congregations in the Holy Land.

From its head offices in Jerusalem, the ICEJ reaches out into more than 170 countries worldwide, with branch offices in over 90 nations.

  • To reach every segment of Israel’s society with a Christian testimony of comfort and love, and;
  • To reach and actively represent to Israel the support of denominations, churches, and believers from every nation on earth.
God’s plan is prophesied and fulfilled in scripture
Everlasting Covenant

God made an unconditional promise to Israel

Genesis 12: 1-3

‘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.’

God made an everlasting covenant

Genesis 17: 7-8

‘I will establish My covenant between Me and you and your descendants… for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and… give to you…all the land…as an everlasting possession.

God has not rejected Israel

Romans 11:1, 29

‘Has God cast away His people? Certainly not!…For the gifts and calling of God are irrevocable.’

Divine Restoration

God’s faithfulness will never change

2 Timothy 2: 13

‘If we are unfaithful, He remains faithful.’

The regathering of the Jewish people

Isaiah 11: 12

‘[He] will assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.’

The re-establishment of the nation of Israel

Ezekiel 37: 21-22

‘I will take the children of Israel from among the nations, wherever they have gone, and will gather them from every side and bring them into their own land; and I will make them one nation in the land...nor shall they ever be divided into two kingdoms again.’

Strength in Unity

Israel’s calling to bring salvation to the Gentiles

Romans 11:11-12

‘through their fall…salvation has come to the Gentiles.’

God calls us to bless Israel

Isaiah 40:1

‘“Comfort, yea, comfort My people!” Says your God. Speak comfort to Jerusalem, and cry out to her, that her warfare is ended.’

Romans 15: 27

‘For if the Gentiles have been partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister to them in material things.

God’s plan for the salvation of Israel

Romans 11: 26

‘And so all Israel will be saved, as it is written: “The Deliverer will come out of Zion, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob.”’

Eternal Fulfillment

Gospel prophesied beforehand to Abraham

Galatians 3:8

And the Scripture…preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, “In you all the nations shall be blessed.”’

Fulfilled promise

John 3:16

‘For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son.’

Jesus returns to Jerusalem and judges the nations

Zechariah 14: 4

‘And on that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives.’

God made an everlasting covenant with Israel and the Jewish people
Promise and prophesied salvation

‘Go from your country…to the land I will show you.’ Genesis 12:1 In that land God constituted the Abrahamic covenant with the decision to save the world, and to do so through Abraham’s lineage, out of which Jesus the Saviour of the world was brought forth. All disciples were Jewish and the Gospel was to the Jew first Romans 1:16. But through their fall in not recognizing Jesus as their Messiah, salvation has come to the Gentiles. God promised to Abraham to use the nation of Israel as the vehicle for world redemption. ‘And the Scripture… foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, ‘In you all the nations shall be blessed.’ Galatians 3:8

Unity of Jews and Gentiles

By going deeper in God and His word, the scriptures show us that the church has not replaced the Jewish people. No, ’Certainly Not!’, Paul then continues to write in Romans 11, the Gentiles are being ‘grafted’ into the ‘olive tree’ and are nourished by the ‘root’. The tree thus signifies the collective people of God. The ‘wild branches’, who are grafted in, are Gentile believers. The ‘natural branches’ that were cut off because of unbelief, are the Jewish people, but ‘God is able to graft them in again’, as Gentiles are grafted in as well. For it is written ‘He united Jews and Gentiles into one people when, in His own body on the cross, He broke down the wall of hostility that separated us.’ Ephesians 2:11–22

A start up nation against all odds

In just seven decades, Israel has transitioned from a developing nation to a bustling hub for world innovative companies, earning Israel the title of ‘Start-Up Nation’. The cultural, economic and geopolitical crucible that Israelis are subjected to from a young age, produces individuals who do not fear failure, are willing to shoulder great responsibilities and constantly explore how things could be better. Israel is on the cutting edge in science, medicine, high-tech, and agriculture. As a leader in disaster relief and international development, the Jewish State continues to change lives in all corners of the globe—from aiding earthquake victims in Haiti to bringing water technology to Africa. Connect with the ICEJ and like-minded Christian businesspeople on our trips to Israel. ‘The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.’ Isaiah 60:3

Restoration of the land of Israel

In the last 70 years about 3.5 million Jewish people immigrated back to their rightful land. Israel’s modern day restoration is a miracle against all odds—a clear evidence of God’s faithfulness to His Covenant made with His friend Abraham 4000 years ago. No past, present or future kingdom, authority or ruler can and will succeed to annihilate the Jewish people, or to remove them from their land. God Himself is on their side. Hence, the reason why Israel, and its land, is so disputed. Israel and the Jewish people are the fulfilment of God’s bigger plan for the world, to bring salvation, and to restore the Jewish people collectively back to their land—to be their God. God’s promise was constituted into an everlasting covenant ‘the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession.’ Genesis 17:7-8
