Worship Video

This is a short clip of worship at one of the local charismatic churches in Nizhny Novgorod. The church is 15 years old and was founded by a former teacher. It is called the Vine and is one of the more successful churches in the city. They are currently building a worship center. In Russia it is often very beneficial to own a building as it adds legitimacy to your church. A protestant church is a somewhat less likely to be viewed as a cult if they have their own building.

Hi Karen, this is a very lively worship time.

In India also its imp. to own your worship place, but many churches find it difficult.

We have a large church building and a tiny congregation, several churches have approached us, wanting to rent our building but a majority of our church memebers are against it. It hurts me. i want to share the building with others but can 't do a thing about it.
