Christ at the Checkpoint Conference

In 2010, Bethlehem Bible College began a new initiative, inviting international Christians to learn about us as Palestinian Christians at our Christ at the Checkpoint Conferences. We, as Palestinian Evangelical Christians at BBC, believe that Christ is our hope as he is present in our current conflict and His presence can make a difference at the checkpoint.

Christ at the Checkpoint is an effort to answer the question “How should Christ followers respond to this political, multi-faceted conflict?” Walls and checkpoints have a huge effect on the Christian community in the Palestinian Territories. As a result, the checkpoint and the wall become a focal point and symbol of the conflict. We desire to bring Christ into our daily context.

 

The aim of Christ at the Checkpoint is to provide an opportunity for evangelical Christians who take the Bible seriously to prayerfully seek a proper awareness of issues of peace, justice, and reconciliation.

 

It is another way in which Bethlehem Bible seeks to empower and encourage the Palestinian church.
