The founder and senior pastor of New Creation Church, Joseph Prince, has been awarded the Friends of Zion International Relations Award. The Award recognizes those who have gone above and beyond to create support for Israel around the world.
It was given away by Israel’s 9th President Shimon Peres on behalf of The Friends of Zion Museum, who told Prince that “Israel’s relationship with Singapore is one of brotherhood and friendship.”
The Museum opened in Jerusalem last September and has set itself a goal of serving as a bridge, connecting people from around the world and motivating more communities to come out in support of Israel.
The Museum was established by an U.S. Christian organisation led by evangelical writer and activist Mike Evans. Evans is an avid supporter of a Jewish state in the Holy Land. Mr Peres too had come under criticisms from a left-wing NGO in that country, Samaria Settlers’ Committee, which accused Mr Peres of taking funding from evangelicals on behalf of the Museum.
Pastor Prince leads who leads a 32,000-member mega church in Singapore and has brought thousands of Christians to Israel. He told Peres that “Singapore was built with the friendship and support of Israel,” and pledged to continue supporting Israel and her people on the world stage.
The Award given to Prince is inscribed with the words “Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. May those who love you be secure… For the sake of my family and friends, I will say, Peace be within you.” (Psalm 122 from the Bible) and highlights one of the major objectives of the Friends of Zion Museum – to act as a beacon of light and increase support for the state of Israel internationally.Follow us on Social Media
