CHRISTIAN PILGRIMAGE – A BACKBONE OF CHRISTIAN FAITH
Most Christian believers suffice in the thought of FAITH, which means belief in the things not seen, and yet wanting to experience it. A journey of hope, faith and adoration to the maker, (GOD) constitutes what pilgrimage is all about.
In the bid to have self encounters with Christ, embarking on a journey of faith to the HOLY land becomes the ultimate in the entire life of a true believer of Christ. Notably, our bodies being embodiments of Christ, pronounces it befitting and worthy of recognition to go on a pilgrimage to have an encounter with Christ and get to experience the Biblical teachings.
This year’s encounter with Christ (Pilgrimage) being the second, once again to be facilitated by the Religious Affairs Ministry, is expected to fly about five hundred and over Christians to Israel at a more secured means and a minimised fee. It is expected that this pilgrimage being the second edition would imprint in the minds of changed Christians to win more souls to Christ, not only in the immediate but the future.
Places in Israel expected to be visited are Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Cana, Tiberias, Sea of Galilee, Nazareth, Capernum, Tabgha, Primatur, Mount Carmel, Jordan river, Qas’R El Yahud, Dead sea, Jerico, Bethlehem, Mount of Olives, Gethsemani, Via Dolorosa, Calvary, Holy Sephulchre, Church of Nativity, Shepherd’s Field, Mount Zion, Western wall, Cardo, Knesset and finally Israel Museum.
