In Jerusalem - Calvary Church

 

In just the past few years, our congregation in East Jerusalem has grown more than 1,400 percent. Our faith family now numbers more than 200. And we continue to grow.

Our ministry’s emphasis is fulfillment of Luke 18:16 — Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Providing a future for the next generation will help prevent a mass exodus of Christian Arabs from the Land.

For nearly a decade we have faced enormous challenges in finding a permanent home for our church community. The pressures from certain radical Muslim elements within our area recently forced our landlord to evict us. The building we were in has been vandalized and church members physically attacked on many occasions.

Despite all these things, our church has seen the blessing of God and church membership has grown to a point where people are standing in the hall to hear the God's Word. Our hearts' desire is to purchase a multipurpose Church building in the heart of East Jerusalem, to remind those in the city and surrounding villages that Jesus is the Savior.

Real estate in Jerusalem is unbelievably expensive. Hence our need for a modest but sufficient building is approximately 6 million U.S. dollars. Stand with us, laying up treasure in heaven by giving to this need. Click here...
