This Easter, World Vision photographers bring you 10 beautiful photos of Christians around the world worshipping and celebrating the good news of Christ Jesus: He is risen! Join them in their chorus this Easter weekend as we celebrate His resurrection with our own church families.
“Sing to the LORD, all the earth; proclaim his salvation day after day.
Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.
For great is the LORD and most worthy of praise …
Let them say among the nations, “The LORD reigns!”
—Psalm 96:1-4, 10
