The John Calvin Center, An Evangelical Study Center and Research Library
"I am the Bread of life... the Light of the world... the Door of the sheep... the Good Shepherd... the Resurrection and the Life..."
In both English and the original Greek, the stained glass windows of Trinity Chapel at John Calvin Center in Larnaca, Cyprus, silently call out Jesus' words from the Gospel of John to passersby on this Greek and English-speaking Mediterranean island. It is not unusual to see those walking on the street peering at them, deep in thought. But this is only a foretaste of the rich grace to all who respond to the warm welcome at the International Evangelical Church which worships inside, a blended congregation of locals and foreigners.
In order to serve the churches effectively, MERF has established the John Calvin Center for training and study in Cyprus. Research facilities are available for pastors and others to strengthen their scriptural and theological knowledge in a practical way through structured or independent study to equip them for effective ministries. This includes a growing library of literature and audiovisual materials on a wide range of topics.
