Rab Naal Mel For Punjabi Christian Community

Mar 3rd 2014 at 5:20 AM

A good number of Christian live in Punjab in Pakistan and many of them are religious as well. Ray of Hope Church makes rab naal mel possible for the Punjabi Christian Community.

While people of Punjabi origin are mostly found in the North East Pakistan as well as in North East India, there is a basic difference. A good number of Punjabis live in Sindh and Punjab in Pakistan. Majority of Indian Church live in Sindh and Punjab in Pakistan and they have their own unique religious customs and traditions.

A Brief History of Punjabi Christian Community

It would be good having a little look in the historical background of the Christian community in Punjab.

  • Despite their linguistic, cultural as well as racial common features, there was no common ethno cultural identity of Punjabi people.

  • By tradition the identity of Punjabi people were linguistic in nature and they also shared similar cultural background.

  • However, when it came to religion, a great number of Punjabi Christians, most of whom reside in Pakistan now, it was a different proposition altogether.

Punjabi Christians Abroad

However many Punjabi Christians reside abroad outside the sub continent of India and Pakistan. They also follow their own prophecies and religious customs and traditions. That means despite their linguistic and to some extent cultural similarities; Punjabis are basically a heterogeneous group of people.

Common Objective of Every Religion

Common objective of every religion is to bring people nearer to God though there are other affiliated objectives that the preachers of religion and prophets try to make people understand.

  • Every religion and so also Christianity professes following the path of truth and humanity.

  • Rab naal mel is popular Punjabi proverb that means getting nearer to God. Christian prophets and pastors try to spread the message among their Punjabi and other disciples the message of Jesus Christ that can bring people nearer to God.

  • Similarly, the basic objective of introducing people to church is to provide the people coming to church with a life changing experience that will make the understand the supreme power that rules the earth and all universe.

Jackson Heights Church

When it comes to introducing people to the church that offers ray of hope in their light one cannot ignore the Jackson Heights or Jackson Heights Church Doors of the church is wide open for all people that are looking for close proximity to divinity and therefore, God the almighty. True churches will always try to enhance the spiritualism in the people and bring them nearer to the ultimate truth. They will ensure this irrespective of background and the level of spirituality that the person concerned has already reached upon.

Working as one of the life giving as well as multi cultural churches on Jackson Heights, the Ray of Hope Church has become the symbol of spiritualism and the medium of rab naal mel for the Punjabi Christian communities from all over the world. And this they try to ensure through their extremely engaging as well as powerful worshipping services.
