We are CIDI
What We Do
The mission of Christians in Defense of Israel (CIDI) is to strengthen your Christian faith and to inspire you to be a goodwill ambassador for Israel and the Jewish people. We accomplish this mission through education and immersive experiences in Israel.
CIDI provides education in multiple ways, including, but not limited to: the Defender newsletter; brochures, books and booklets; audio-visual; radio and television; online and social media; tele-conferences and tele-town halls; conferences; student organizations; and immersive experiential tours in Israel. There are two general types of Israel tours CIDI offers or supports. The first is the Liberty Ambassador Counsel (LAC) tour.
Liberty Ambassador Counsel Tour
Both the LAC and the CJ tours for college-age students provide life-changing experiences. Your Christian faith will be strengthened and your understanding of and love for Israel will be deepened.
Everything comes together in Israel - our Christian faith, our Judeo-Christian values, our history and heritage, the past, present, and future - everything revolves around Israel. This small country is no bigger than the state of New Jersey, but it is always at the center of attention. From Biblical history and prophecy to geopolitical issues, Israel occupies a unique place in history.
It is important that we support Israel. The Bible has much to say about how Israel occupies a unique place in God’s economy. In addition to what the Bible says, Israel is our greatest ally in the Middle East. Israel is the only place in the Middle East where religious liberty and democracy flourish. Our Western culture, law, policies, and Judeo-Christian values are rooted in Israel. Indeed, our Christian faith is rooted in Israel and the Jewish culture. Jesus was born in Jewish flesh, and the Bible was written predominately by Jews.
We are honored to provide you the opportunity to learn about Israel, to discover the wonders of this land and the people, and to deepen your understanding of the Bible and God’s plan for you.
