Christ's World Body

Every Nation Beautiful

BoyThe words, "Our Father, who art in heaven," made all people kin. Saint Paul told the Roman Christians in Romans 8.15-16, "By him we cry, 'Abba, Father.' The spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children." Christ's World Body was the great model of ministry for the New Testament church and also God's choice for ours at the beginning of the Twenty First Century. This model, when rediscovered, will bind together what we called "the church" into a clear and focused body across the Globe.✞

All People are Kin

World GlobeThe children of God in the Body of Christ stretched across all nations. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology and communications, Christians of different races could now know what each other were doing, feeling and thinking. Christ's world body was truly united as one. Saint Luke wrote in Acts 17.26, "From one man, he made every nation of men that they should inhabit the whole earth." Yellow, red, pink, white, brown, and black all stood on a par in God's created order. Their common faith premise, springing out of the Mystical Body, evoked unity and gratitude. Black was beautiful, brown and white were beautiful, pink was beautiful, red and yellow were beautiful. All were beautiful. All nations were beautiful.
