Belief in God is a natural course traversed by the mind, with some people having aroused this faith at an early stage in life, while in some it gets somewhat delayed. It is because of this belief system that people are able to find peace within them as well as exist with compassion and feeling for brothers and sisters of the world. On the whole, this is what makes the world a better place to live in. With the right place to beseech God and an environment with His blessings, people can be at peace. In the region of Jackson Heights in New York, this belief system has been strengthened among the residents, many of which are Punjabi people from India. Even though they follow Christianity through their church, there have been bright examples of the manner in which people coexist together.
• Church showing path towards strengthening belief in god and bible
Through the establishment of the Punjabi Christian Community in Jackson Heights, the community in this region has very well shown that following a religion of choice with belief can be highly satisfying. These people follow the church rules with all their heart and welcome members from all communities in the region of Jackson Heights or Jackson Heights Church. So, when the church sessions are going on, there is a congregation of Punjabis, as well as other ethnicities in the area. Everyone is welcomed as brothers and sisters, with the primary aim of bringing people closer to God and developing the belief system.
• Extensive teaching and sermons on bible and preaching of God by knowledgeable pastors
Much of the stress of the Jackson Heights church is on bible teaching, with pastors having extensive knowledge and ideas on God. In most of the days, there is regular preaching from the Holy Book, which is listened to by many members of the church. The pastoral work is taken up by people from the same communities and in many cases sermons are done in English as well as Punjabi. This goes on to show that the depth of knowledge and religious tolerance is quite high. Even the bibles in the church are printed and provided to the members in four or five different languages. Choir singing is also done in more than one language, so that people from various communities can easily understand the teachings.
• Inviting and attracting people from multi-cultural backgrounds to become members and pray together
Influential teaching in the Masihi Church has since long attracted many people, who have become full time members. At the same time, these sermons are so heart touching that they also attract new members, who are in search of and want to revive the feeling of God within them. The Jackson Heights Church welcomes people from all groups and communities to attend the prayers as per their comfort and wish. Such flexibility and indulgence is highly encouraging for people, helping them in walking in the direction of attainment of peace. This kind of tolerance for ethnicities, religions and communities has helped Punjabi Church to garner goodwill in Jackson Heights and even in New York.
