The fact that the International Christian Committee is an ecumenical body, representative of the local Church with its executive membership comprising of local Church leaders, we are called as Christians to serve in humbleness and self-sacrifice, putting our own pride and agendas aside to meet the needs of the marginalized and oppressed in society.
There has been a continuous Christian presence in Palestine for the last 2000 years testifying to the birth and resurrection of Jesus Christ, events which all took place in this very land. The International Christian Committee responded to the first Nakba and has been sincere in its Diakonia towards serving the Palestinians on the baselines of our Christian beliefs and understanding.
