Markus Church, this wondrous beautiful church on St. Hanshaugen in Oslo, is only 900 meters from the Government building. It is wondrous because it is as if the church from the very beginning was prepared for the function it now will get.
The ceiling is adorned with paintings of angels who say: “Pray without ceasing “, “Offer unto God the sacrifice of thanksgiving” and “Sing with joy to the Lord”. This expresses the worship! Behind the altarpiece is an artistic presentation of the four living beings from the book of Revelation, which sings “holy, holy, holy” day and night. God shall be honored!
Other angels say, “Do not fear, believe only,” “Rejoice in hope”, “God is love”. God’s mercy is emphasized! And above the entrance it is engraved in granite: “Believe in God – everything is possible for those who believe”! If you enter in here, miracles and healings can happen. Here is hope for the hopeless!
The church also has a prayer tower, and outside the entrance to the church there is a bus stop with 400 departures a day and 10 million annual passengers.
