WMA Israel 2018


  • Israel, considered the Holy Land, is important for all three of Israel’s major religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.
  • With the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, Jewish independence, lost almost 2,000 years earlier, was renewed.
  • Geography: The shape of Israel is long and narrow. The country is about 290 miles in length and 85 miles in width at its widest point.
  • Jews comprise some 75.4% of the country’s population, while the country’s non-Jewish citizens, mostly Arabs, number about 24.6%.
  • Capital: Jerusalem (population 788,100)
  • Official languages are Hebrew & Arabic


  • Long-standing conflict between Israel and surrounding neighbors
  • The Christian church in Israel is fragmented but the potential for unity is growing
  • It is comprised of about 80% Arabs, 12% expatriates (Egyptian, Ethiopian, Greek, Russian, Armenian, Italian, others) and 8% Jews. There are Catholics (five rites), Orthodox (nine traditions) and Protestants/Independents (over 20 denominations, many individual congregations and over 100 mission agencies). Pray for spiritual unity that transcends history, ethnic conflict, national origins, eschatology and secondary areas of theology. (
