“Light of the World”
Jesus in this miracle of healing a blind man from birth is a sign that Jesus and the Kingdom of God is breaking into the darkness. Jesus is saying there will be light. I am making all things new. Maybe what Jesus is doing in our lives does not seem as spectacular as making a blind person see but what Jesus is doing in all of our lives if we are willing to open our eyes and heart is making all things new.
Theme: Jesus was claiming to be the light of the world.
The themes throughout the Gospels of Redemption and Resurrection is about Jesus bringing back to life the things that seem dead. Our circumstances can seem so overwhelming but even in the midst of the darkness God can do miracles by shining forth in spite of it all.
Goshen International Church and Community Center
Born out of the long term friendship and ministry partnership between pastors Bigimba Ngabo and Gary Stokes, a multi-cultural church and community center seeking to bridge cultures and provide ongoing support for refugees, and indeed all those who need help with life, is just beginning.
Imagine a gathering place where many local churches can join to impact people for Christ who are in great need through a dedicated community center.
Imagine a unique place of worship catching young refugees, people of all colors and languages, of all ages and experiences who choose to be together because of the love of Jesus.
