Welcome to the Bronx Assembly

Light of the World Bronx Assembly is the headquarters of The Light of the World Christian Ministries International. The Light of the World Christian Ministries International, Inc began with Rev. Dr. Isaac Arku adhering to the call of God, “Send My Light to the World.”

Like the Apostle Paul, Rev. Arku took the heavenly vision seriously and surrendered his life completely into the outreached hands of the Savior.

In the late 1980s, in obedience to God and the direction of the Holy Spirit, Dr. Arku, after his ministerial preparation, with his dear wife Rev. Maureen by his side, began the glorious journey to the world with the Gospel Light of Jesus Christ our Lord.

The traveling ministry of the Arku family took them to many countries of the world. 


The vision became reality as they saw many souls saved and delivered from the utter darkness of Satan to the glorious light of Jesus Christ.

In the course of time, there arose an offshoot of the ministry as a bible study and Prayer group in the living room of the Arku family home at Carpenter Avenue, Bronx, New York.

The small bible study and prayer group quickly grew and led to the move to Hicks Avenue, Bronx, NY. By the middle of 1990, the group had blossomed and the small congregation relocated to 3048 Holland Avenue in the Bronx in 1991.Today the church continues to grow and the members worship at their beautiful Sanctuary located at 3255 Laconia Avenue, Bronx, NY 10469. 

Things have changed but the Church has remained true and faithful to the heavenly vision, “Send my Light to the world.“ Surely, the Ministry is “Reaching the World with the Light of Jesus.” Praise the Lord! Like the Prophet Samuel, we can also say, “Ebenezer, Thus far the Lord has helped us,” (I Samuel 7:12).
Come and worship with us!
