Luminaire presents the Gospel of Christ in a creative fashion. The show begins with the creation of the world and the origination of man. God places a curse on creation and on man when man sins. This curse separates man from God. God promises his son Jesus, who will reverse the curse. This promise is made through the form of prophecies in the Old Testament. The prophecies are realized when Jesus is born. His birth marks the arrival of “light” into the world and a way for man to be reconciled with God.
The Bible calls Jesus the light of the world. He illuminates a dark and dying world. Luminaire presents this metaphor with beautiful forms of glowing globes, the moon and other references to light. The dark, tribal quality of the show contrasts with the light and further develops the metaphor.
Luminaire breaks from the traditional images and sights of Christmas in an effort to bring a fresh and new view on the birth of Christ. There is a great deal of mystery surrounding the Christmas story. The show exhibits a sense of mystery and causes attendees to think about the birth of Christ in new ways.

We exist to help people connect to God and begin their spiritual journey. As fully-devoted followers of Christ, we express our love to God by living a life of worship.
We regularly seek ways to serve the unbeliever as well as the believer. We understand this to be an expression of our full devotion to Christ.
