The conference theme – Holy Land Christians: Rooted in Bonds of Peace – emphasizes the historical relevance and spiritual leadership of the Christians of the Holy Land, the living stones that Apostle Peter refers to 1 Peter 2:5.  The primary scriptural reference for the theme is Ephesians 4:3: Make every effort to preserve the unity, which has the Spirit as its origin and peace as its binding force.
