Safwat Marzouk offers a biblical vision for what it means to be an intercultural church. Migration today offers the church an opportunity to renew itself by rediscovering the biblical vision of the church as a diverse community. This vision views cultural, linguistic, racial, and ethnic differences as gifts from God that can enrich the church's worship, deepen its sense of fellowship, and broaden the church's witness to God's reconciling mission in the world.
