Parousia – New Jerusalem Day was celebrated for the first time on August 7, 2016 and is now celebrated the first Sunday in August each year. On August 10th in AD 70 the Second Temple fell in Jerusalem. Jesus is the cornerstone of a new temple, God’s dwelling place made up of people from all nations (Ephesians 2:19-22).

“Parousia” is Greek for “presence.” We celebrate the presence of Jesus in New Jerusalem, the city of God, where Jesus dwells today with His people (Revelation 21:3; II Corinthians 6:16). See our ABOUT PAGE for more information.
