  • The Light of the World warms us, drives out sin

    In the Bible, we are presented with the history of light. “God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.”
    At the Creation, God, the Creator, said, “Let there be light,” and at his word there was light. Light in all its fullness broke into time, and history focused on the life, death and personality of the Light of the World – Jesus. the Christ. Jesus dispelled the darkness from the tomb, and revealed the great and glorious light beyond the tomb.
